Lately I have been thinking about how I have been labeling myself and putting myself in a box and the systems that do just that. For instance Astrology. Most people nowadays know their astrological sign, at least their sun sign. Some people, including myself have had their whole chart done based on their birthday and time of birth. I will admit that the characteristics of these astrological signs can be pretty darn interesting.
However, and this is what I have pondering as of late, I am a soul in this body having a human experience, at this time. Is my soul this astrological sign or is it just the me that is living on this planet now?
Interesting right? I think it is.
Let’s take Numerology as well. Numerology can be super fascinating just like Astrology, but it is also based on your birth date and your full name. Again Numerology can be really cool, but it is limited to just this life and not the thousands of others I have most likely had. Unless of course I always come in with the same Numerology and Astrology chart, which I highly doubt.
Moving on to the Human Design and Gene Keys. Cool ways to know yourself, but also based on this lifetime.
I am in no way saying that these systems are not valuable, so don’t get your panties in a twist. I am just saying they are limited to only this time and space. Maybe that is okay. Maybe that is all you want to know about yourself.
I happen to know that I am much bigger than this particular lifetime. My soul knows no bounds. My soul has lived in many, many bodies; different colors, different countries, different social classes, heck different planets even.
I don’t want to limit myself. I tend to find that all of the above mentioned systems are limiting. I have never quite fit in any of those molds actually. Maybe that is just me, but I have never once read any of my charts (and yes I have had all of the above charts done for myself) and thought that they were without a doubt spot on. Not once. And before you say it, I am not interested in any other charts or tests or anything to know myself more. I am good.
As of late I am tuning into my Higher Self, you know, my soul, for more and more guidance and inner knowing. She is the one who knows the most about, well, me. All the thousands of versions I have been, all the experiences I have had, adventures good and bad, personality quirks, everything.
If you feel called to know yourself more in this body, at this time that is cool. Ultimately it is your choice. Go for it. Do what lights you up. But remember that this body that your soul is hanging out in has been around the block a time or two. They know YOU best. Why not talk to them and find out who you truly ARE at soul level.
Just my two cents.
