For a long time, I have heard people talk about the idea of recreating oneself in order to be happier.  I think there are some important distinctions to be made here!!  There are many things we can recreate so that we are more satisfied with the end product, but I think our Self isn’t one of them.  Before I go on, I just want to give a working definition for the word Self which  you will see all over this blog because I am in love with this word!  Self with a capital S is the same thing as your Spirit, as your Soul.  It is your ME that is the truest form of who you are.  Your Self has a particular frequency of vibration that is unique – it sets you apart from every other Soul in this universe.  By the way, this is a good thing!!

When I hear the word “recreate” I think “change.”  For example, we can recreate a recipe by adding an ingredient (perhaps a dash or two of cayenne to kick up the heat in a pasta sauce!) and the end product would be a different sauce than the one you might typically serve.  That is a change.  You can recreate the look of a room in your home – add or subtract furniture, change paint colours, throw in some nice decor pieces et voila!  New room!  You can do the same thing to yourself (*note: not a capital S) by getting a fresh haircut, playing around with your makeup etc.  You will look different, changed somehow.

But what doesn’t change or cannot be recreated, in my opinion, is your Self.  We don’t need to change our Self – we need to remember it!!  First, remember that it exists (this is huge!), and then remember what its optimal frequency is, what makes it vibrate…what makes it tick!  I literally have a physical reaction when my Soul is recognized.  I actually get the physical shakes.  This happens at no other time and it is not the same as shivering when I’m cold.  When I am talking about something that I am truly passionate about, I shake.  It’s audible in my voice, too.  This has happened a number of times over the last few years that I remember.  The most recent time, I was on the phone with Dr. Susan Biali discussing this very project.  I take it as a sign that my Spirit likes to be remembered!  And that when I remember it, it wants me to notice!

One more note on the difference between remembering and recreating.  It’s semantics that pulls me toward the former word.  If my Soul is an extension of a Greater Power, really a piece of It that I am housing in this body, then I sure don’t want to change it!

I’d be thrilled to hear about your experiences like mine!  Does something physical happen to you when your Self is remembered?  (Later I’d like to talk about the physical things that happen to us when our Self is NOT remembered!)
