Remembering Who We Are

Post by HypnoDude on March 22nd 2009, 2:55 am

Brave Spirits

Most of us are familiar with the idea that we are not human beings having spiritual experiences; instead, we are spiritual beings having human experiences. We hear this and even though we may experience a resounding yes in our bodies, we may not take the time to really acknowledge the truth of these statements. Integrating this idea into how we view ourselves can broaden our sense of who we are and help us appreciate ourselves as brave spirits on an important mission to learn and grow here on earth.

As spiritual beings, we are visitors in this physical realm. The fact that we came here and lost all memory of what happened to us before we were born is one of the many reasons that it takes so much courage for a soul to incarnate on earth. This is why spiritual inquiry so often feels like a remembering—because it is. Remembering that we are spiritual beings is part of the work that we are here on earth to do. When we operate from a place of remembering, we tap into the wisdom that our spirit accumulated even before we stepped into this lifetime. Remembering who we are can give us the patience to persevere when we become overwhelmed or frustrated. It can give us the courage to work through the most daunting challenges and help us trust the ancient wisdom we carry that is offered to us by our intuition.

We have chosen to be on earth because there is something we want to learn that can only happen by inhabiting a body. Some of us are here to repay a debt, learn about love, or teach forgiveness. Most of us are here for a combination of reasons, we carry this information in our souls, all we have to do is remember. As you go through your journey, try not to forget how brave you are, being here now. Honor yourself.

Beautiful and so true

When our soul inhabited this body many years ago, doesn't it make sense that we our (soul) was aware of where he/she was going?

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
~Teilhard de Chardin~


I have heard this saying towards the beginning of my spiritual awakening. Although at the moment i could use a spiritually cold shower to wake me up Wink But all in all remembering who we really are is important. I am a child of God as i believe we all are. God gave us a soul if we can listen to our soul then we are in perfect connection with God.

Many Blessings
