It would be fair to say that honesty only goes skin deep. It’s available to anyone who wants to look beyond an individual’s physical appearance. 

Truth enters the body. It can consciously move because you are the consciousness. That means you decide to experience honesty and live with it.

As you become more self-aware, you’ll notice more connections between yourself and the world around you. That means you’ll be ready to follow in the footsteps of a journey toward self-realization.

1. Take Time to Explore the Self

Once you become more aware of the truth, there is a desire to get to know oneself better. It is a mission mixed with curiosity and dissatisfaction. You will work to find out more about your personality to understand where destiny has placed your life. Often, we get caught up in what others think about us that we don’t say “no” and create more time for ourselves.

2. Discover Who You Are

Self-discovery begins when there is a willingness to start answering the “why” questions about existence. It looks at the reasons behind why you feel, think, or make decisions in specific ways. It’s like you are looking in a mirror, but you get to see what makes you tick.

3. Understand the Reasons Behind Your Existence

Your ego isn’t something evil or proud. It is a representation of the dynamic self. When you get to know who you are at this level, then your self-understanding becomes wisdom you can use in any situation. Once you reach this stage, it even becomes possible to begin healing wounds that impact your spiritual core.

4. Learn to Love Yourself

One of the foundational commands of society is to love others in the same way you love yourself. It’s what we call the Golden Rule. The critical aspect of that thought is a need to have self-love in the first place. You must have compassion for who you are and the challenges you’ve managed in life.

5. Embrace the Concept of Transformation

Once you reach this step, then you’re ready to begin shedding your limiting habits. Any compulsions or perceptions that hold you back start to transform you into the most authentic version of who you are. It can be a destabilizing experience at first, but it also helps you to feel more comfortable in your skin.

Self-realization is a gift from the universe. It occurs when we stop identifying with the limitations that falsely hold back our soul. When you can recognize who you are and what you can do, then no shackles can hold you back.
