Module One - Who Am I?
This module will help you to discover the gem that you truly are!
Watch the videos below, and give yourself 2 - 4 hours to complete the exercises over the week and of course, bring any questions you have to the call.
Don't worry if the exercises are not yet complete prior to the weekly calls. The calls are designed to help clarify concepts and motivate you along the way!
A fun set of questions to get you and I both up-to-speed on where this journey begins! .
1.2 YOUR ORIGINAL MEDICINE
In Native culture, original medicine refers to the concept that we are each born with a unique set of gifts to share with the world. Your unique values, characteristics, attributes and energy all make up a package that is all you and only you. It is this unique expression that you are here to share with others and I believe it is through this exchange that we live our greatest moments and life. So with that said, watch the video below and dive into your Original Medicine Timeline to understand more about who you truly are and what you are here to share.
1.3 Who Am I?
It is very easy to lose sight of who you are. When we are born we are whole and as we begin to grow, many factors (from parents to society and culture) begin to inform us of what is acceptable and what is not and how we should identify with who we are. In many cases the ‘coats we wear’ in life are not our own and it is our awareness of these miss-informed identities that is needed to truly identify who we are. Using the exercises below, you will begin to identify who you ARE as a whole self.
The Social Self
Often referred to as your 'people pleaser' self. This is who we take out to social situations, work, parties etc. It is the self that is concerned with fitting in and therefore is prone to worrying too much about others. This self can lead us astray if it isn't balanced out with your authentic self.
The authentic self
This is your true self, the one that often gets left out when life gets busy. This self doesn't care about fitting in but rather cares a lot about finding joy, balance, contentment and energy. The authentic self NEEDS your attention daily and the more you tune into what it needs, the happier you will.
the shadow self
The shadow self refers to the hidden aspects of who we are, the ones that we have innocently hidden, are ashamed of, and/or were told at some stage this 'way of being/behaviour' is not acceptable. Embracing your shadow and re-integrating these aspects of yourself are key to reaching wholeness.
