How to Find Yourself: A Step-by-Step Guide

Finding yourself is a simple yet profound journey. It begins with a fundamental shift in perspective—you need to stop believing in the narratives that the world has woven around you and the stories you’ve told yourself about who you are. After discarding these layers of perception, what remains is the core of your being.

Let’s embark on a live experiment to illustrate this concept. Imagine there is a transparent polythene bag in front of you. Various things are poured into it, including items of value and, inevitably, some garbage.

Now, ask yourself: What are you in this scenario?

To uncover the answer, you must begin the process of removal. Start by taking out all the items that don’t resonate with your intuition, all that is not truly you. Strip away the layers of conditioning, societal expectations, and self-imposed limitations.

Now, what are you?

Think for a moment.


That’s incorrect.

In this experiment, you are nothing.

From nothing, you were born, and to nothing, you will return. It’s a paradoxical truth—you are both nothing and everything simultaneously.

Here are some key takeaways from this experiment:

  1. Awareness of Self: Once you become aware of who you are in reality—stripped of external influences and perceptions—living in harmony with your true self leads to a profound sense of bliss.
  2. Resonance with Energy: Pay attention to the energies around you. Those that are in tune with your authentic self will either make you feel good or, at times, leave you feeling nothing at all, depending on your current state.
  3. Understanding the Dissonance: Some energies may not be in tune with your authentic self yet. In such cases, the solution is not to react but to provide understanding.
  4. Focus on Alignment: Allow your focus to align with what resonates with your soul. This alignment will naturally draw energies that are in harmony with your true self, leading to a smoother and more blissful life.
  5. The Inevitable Alignment: With time and conscious awareness, all energies will harmonize with your authentic self, creating a life that reflects your true nature.

In the journey to find yourself, remember that it’s an ongoing process. It’s not about becoming someone new but rather about peeling away the layers that have obscured your true essence. Embrace your authentic self, and you’ll discover a life filled with meaning, purpose, and endless possibilities.
