Can we actively help others become more self-aware, or is self-awareness a personal journey that only begins when someone is ready?

Hey swell mates. Here's another prompt that I suggested and curious to know. Can we actively help others become more self aware? Or is self awareness a personal journey that only begins when someone is truly ready to become self aware? I'm just curious to know your insights and experiences on either self awareness for yourself or if you've been able to assist in others becoming self aware. Thank you

I think that it was about trauma or past experiences led us to be self aware because we had to be. And maybe if someone hasn't had experiences that made them have to think about how they moved through the world and how it affected them, let alone how it affected other people, then this wasn't something they had to even think about. And so when something requires effort and you don't have to put that effort in, then maybe people are not inclined to do it

And just openly being yourself around others can inspire them to self reflect, and you can be a mirror for them, whether that's in a positive or a negative way. Ultimately, I think people will continue to look through the lens of their trauma, experience, etcetera, until they are open and willing to look at themselves from perhaps a more objective point of view

This is my greatest sadness right now #selfsabotage #personaldevelopment #personalgrowth #universalenergy

So I've been really, really struggling with this today after a few. A few recent experiences with clients who've come to me and said, I am ready to enter the universe. I am ready for spiritual power. I am ready for the field of limitless possibilities. And they have come to me because they know that I have tapped into it and I can help walk them, walk them through

So I had to kind of change my perspective. And, yeah, I was sad, of course, I feel you when, like, I can't help someone that I know what they need to do, and it's just take a drink of water. Like, you know, trying to lead that horse to water. I want you to drink because. Because you're parched, you're thirsty, you're unwell. I just need you to take a drink of water

I just wanted to put this out there as something that I try to deepen my own self awareness, is I actively make it a point to watch certain documentaries, read certain biographies or autobiographies, to kind of put myself in the shoes of other people in situations that I've never experienced, to think, how would I handle the situation? Granted, I'm not in that situation. I may never go through that situation

I have to coach and train a lot of employees, and if that effort is not there, you can really see those who are going to give you some umph and some who are just going to coast by because they want to put as little effort as possible. And those are the ones that kind of, I guess I'm trying to find out what motivates those who are not self aware and what motivates those who don't have that effort to want to even become self aware. So thank you

@LeeJynn

You got me thinking about something. So in the last few years, I learned that there are two different kinds of empathy. There's affective and cognitive, and apologies if you're already familiar with these things, but for anyone else, affective is when your mirror neurons in your brain mirror what somebody else is feeling

And there's usually a debate of, of environmental versus just what's innate and genetic inside of you. So I do believe that even though someone may not be equipped naturally with that type of empathy, but the training, like you were saying, and the development, I think that can go with a lot of other emotional skills, coping skills and, and strategies. So, yeah. Thank you for bringing that up. I appreciate learning more about that

But it is nice to have different cultures and views surrounding you in a bigger city or, you know, just a different area like that. But thank you for sharing your experience. It sounds like you've done a lot of exploration of your inner self for sure. I appreciate it

I do know that there's a lot happening in the world, and I've been wondering if it's just like a stage we're in currently that is trapping a lot of people into old mindsets or past beliefs. Perhaps? I know that for myself, I've been having more resistance around certain things in my life as well, and it seems like the normal modalities that I used to rely on are not working in the same way

And I think, frankly, the healing community overall has done a disruptive service to people that are seeking, because I think there's a lot of people out there practicing that don't fully understand what they're doing, and they don't know how to help people understand what they're doing in a way that is cohesive with kind of a unified understanding of how things work. And so people are. Their healing journeys are very piecemeal. Right. You know, I'm gonna go do some Reiki

Hi. So from my experience and experiences of people close to me, I have to say that I am self aware. And when others see the change in me, sometimes it ignites that in them. But me trying to force someone to become self aware, it needs to be when they are ready. Because even if they see that in me and they start changing themselves and becoming more self aware, it literally has to come from them
