Your Identity Matters: Why you need it and how to own it.

Your Identity is the many facets of your Soul coming together as your personal majesty; just like an exquisite stained glass window. – Every colour and shape are carefully crafted into a complete and magnificent piece of art that allows the beauty, light and divinity to shine through and bless all who have eyes to see.

I’m still immensely passionate about Identity and love helping women discover and express their deeper identity.

Identity is a complex and multifaceted concept deeply intertwined with your sense of self, purpose, and belonging. At its core, Identity is the total of all the characteristics, experiences, beliefs, and values that make you who you are.

At its essence, your Identity is a reflection of your Soul, its the very nature of who you are as a spiritual being experiencing a human life. I see the Art of Identity as a stained glass window or tapestry comprising of many different colours and shapes, each representing a unique aspect of your being.

Some of the key components of your Identity include your personality traits, interests, passions, and spiritual beliefs and practices. All these elements work together to create a rich and diverse masterpiece that reflects the beauty of your Soul.

One of the reasons your Identity is so important is that it shapes how you see yourself and your place in the world.

When you have a strong sense of Identity, you can navigate life’s ups and downs with greater ease and observation, knowing that you’re grounded in your truth and purpose.

On the other hand, when you feel disconnected from your true Identity, you may struggle with feelings of confusion, anxiety, and a sense of not belonging. This can lead to various adverse outcomes, including mental health issues, relationship problems, and a lack of fulfilment.

The good news is that no matter where you are in your journey, it is never too late to explore and discover your true Identity. By reflecting on your values, passions, pleasures, beliefs and purpose, you can uncover the unique gifts and talents you have to offer.

One of the fundamental principles I teach is the importance of living your life from a place of authenticity and alignment with your Higher Self. This means being true to your values, pursuing your passions, and cultivating a deep connection with your spiritual essence.

When you live from this place of alignment, you can tap into a sense of inner peace and fulfilment unmatched by anything external. You can create a life that is truly your own, grounded in your unique Identity and purpose. So, how can you embrace and celebrate your Identity? 

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Get to know yourself better. 

Spend time reflecting on your experiences, values, and beliefs. Find out your specific archetypes, meditate, or talk to a trusted friend or mentor about who you are and what matters to you.

  • Focus on your strengths. 

Identify your unique talents and skills and find ways to use them daily. Celebrate your accomplishments and achievements, no matter how small.

  • Embrace your quirks and imperfections. 

Remember that your flaws are part of what makes you who you are. Instead of trying to hide them, embrace them as part of your unique Identity.

  • Connect with others who celebrate diversity. 

Seek out communities or groups that celebrate individuality and diversity. Surround yourself with people who accept and appreciate you for who you are.

Your Identity is a powerful and essential aspect of your being. It is the sum total of all the characteristics, experiences, beliefs, and values that make you who you are. – Unlock your full potential by exploring and embracing your Identity.
