You can’t find what you don’t know in what you do know. And so to explore all of who you are – your authentic self and deepest potential – requires risking a trek into your inner depths. As an acupuncturist, I find the biggest lie patients tell themselves is they don’t know what brings them joy or what their life purpose is. The truth is, we always know. But we can be so afraid of the unknown that it’s safer to fall into an excuse of ignorance. If you find yourself feeling fearful to embrace all that you are, begin by dropping into slow, deep belly breathing. And then reassure yourself that you are safe and all is well. Because truly it is.
