I first learned about self-awareness from vlogging. I started recording myself, since I couldn’t afford a film crew… and honestly I think I learned more from doing it myself.
The idea that we are aware of our self came from Eckhart Tolle, and he teaches that we are the essence (spirit) and not our thoughts (mind). When we die, our bodies turn back into dust and our spirit continues on.
Self-awareness is created when we can observe the space between our thoughts and our essence.
How to become self-aware
The most effective way we can connect to ourselves, our essence or spirit is through meditation.
Creating your own reality
When you realize you can observe your thoughts, you can be more selective. You think your thoughts intentionally, and you start thinking better thoughts. Thoughts that can literally create your own reality.
