Here are five simple ways to reconnect with your unique Innate Essence.           

Firstly let me tell you what Innate Essence is. It is the purest form of ourselves. Who we were before being ‘changed’ and ‘shaped’ by others ideas and the information we received about ourselves and the world around us. Finding yours again may be a hard road but the five steps here will get you started.

When your Innate Essence is powered up and glowing it affects you and others around you in astounding ways. It may even encourage and inspire others to find and exhibit their own Innate Essence. It allows you to feel charged up, fully alive, and living life with clear intentions, attitudes and principles. 

You don’t need to experience tragedy misfortune or heartbreak to find your own Innate Essence although these have been a catalyst for many people. We are all born with it, some harvest it, some lose sight of it or ignore it but it is never entirely lost.

  1. Immerse yourself in the emotion. Go back in your mind to a time when you were truly happy.  Perhaps you could meditate or simply relax to get you started. Capture what you were doing, who you were with, what your thoughts and dreams were. You are not looking to recreate the scene, you want to recreate the feelings connected to the scene. Wouldn’t you like to feel that way more often, if not always?
  2. Have gratitude for what is in your life now. Right this minute look around you. What do you see?  Don’t worry about what is missing from your life, what you think you need to be happy, focus on what you have…not on what you don’t have.
  3. Choose one thing you are grateful for. It might be a person, your garden, a pet, your health, or even your car. Take a few moments to think about what it is about ‘it’ that allows you to feel grateful. For example,  “I’m grateful for my car because it allows me freedom to come and go”
  4. Consciously feel the connection between your intention of gratitude and your emotion. Now that you have consciously connected with something in your life that is important and has value to you, you have lightly touched on your Innate Essence. But remember! It is not the object that connects you to your Innate Essence. It is the emotion that comes from being aware and acknowledging you are thankful for what you have.
  5. Step five is simply to practice steps one, two, three and four as often as you can. I started with once a day, usually before I drifted off to sleep. Now I am amazed at just how much I have in my life to be thankful for as I consciously take a moment to register gratitude for each. It will eventually become a good habit, one you can take everywhere with you.

These five steps are of course only the beginning. But you have to start somewhere right?
