Discovering Your True Self: The Three Phases of Self-Knowledge

Feb 08, 2023

What is the purpose of your life? Who are you? What is self-realization? What is awakening to one’s purpose? What does spiritual awakening entail, and how does one embark on such a journey of self-discovery? 

While everyone’s spiritual growth journey is unique, there is one aspect present in every journey: self-discovery that eventually leads to awakening and to one’s self-realization.

When we embark on a journey like this, we go through three distinct phases of self-discovery.

Each of these phases builds upon the other and leads to greater and greater understanding and acceptance of Self. Here are the phases:

Phase 1: Answering the question “Who am I?”

The first phase of self-discovery is answering the question “Who am I?” 

This is an exploration of your values, beliefs, traits, and life experiences. It requires introspection and self-reflection, looking at your thoughts and emotions, and what makes you unique. 

This process can be difficult as it requires a level of vulnerability and honesty, but it is also an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of your own identity.


Phase 2: Understanding why you do what you do 

Once you have a better understanding of who you are, the next phase of self-knowledge is understanding why you do what you do. This involves exploring the motivations behind your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. 

It requires an examination of your beliefs, habits, and patterns, and of the external forces that may have shaped - and still are shaping - you. This phase of self-discovery helps you to understand why you react the way you do in certain situations, and why you make certain choices.

It can also help you to identify and work through any limiting beliefs or fears that may be holding you back. In a nutshell, in this phase, you’re starting to get an idea of the subtle yet powerful force of your subconscious patterns.

Phase 3: Acceptance of all parts of yourself

This phase involves embracing all aspects of yourself, including your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It requires a deep level of self-love and self-compassion, recognizing that all parts of you are important and necessary for your overall well-being. This phase of self-discovery helps you to develop a stronger sense of the Self and create a more powerful self-image that naturally forms more fulfilling relationships with others.

The journey of self-discovery is lifelong, and requires effort and patience. It can be uncomfortable, but for those who choose to embrace it, it brings with it tremendous growth and transformation.

The reward? A more fulfilling and meaningful life with deeper understanding of your Self, and more loving relationships (with yourself and others), with higher mental clarity and deeper emotional balance.
