The most important question we can ever ask is, ‘what do I truly want?”
When we know what we truly want, from deep within our soul, we feel a sense of ease, inner peace, joy, and happiness in life and it becomes easier to manage the ‘bumps in the road’.
As simple as this question might be, it’s also one of the most challenging questions to answer.
Answering the question, ‘what do I truly want?’ goes far beyond what our analytical mind may perceive that we want.
We may intellectually believe that we truly want something, and yet, once we get it, it may not bring us the deep sense of happiness and joy we thought we’d get upon getting it.
Sometimes, we can spend years chasing after things, relationships, and situations that we believe we truly want, only to realize, once we get it, that it’s actually not what we truly wanted, or that it simply doesn’t bring us what we thought we’d get from it.
So how do we bypass what we’ve recorded and believed to be what we truly want and get to what we actually truly want?
If we’ve been conditioned by parents, friends, teachers, advertising, the media, and myriads of other external influences to believe that something or someone would bring about a certain feeling, emotion, or situation that we seek, we can learn to recognize and neutralize those influences so that we can actually become aware of what we truly want.
What we truly want is not a sense of safety or security from a financial, status, power, or relationship situation that most people have been unknowingly programmed to equate to happiness and contentment.
This can’t actually bring about a deep and lasting sense of happiness, joy, and personal fulfillment, even if we’re programed to believe that it will, only to find out later, through personal experience, that it just doesn’t.
Unfortunately, these kinds of expectations and beliefs about what will supposedly bring us happiness are what keep most people in a permanent state of seeking and feeling disappointed or dissatisfied when it (whatever we’ve defined ‘it’ to be) doesn’t deliver what we thought it would, over and over again, like a vicious cycle we stay stuck in.
The only way to bypass the programming, we’ve inherited generation after generation, of what will supposedly make us happy is to find the answer deep within our subconscious mind.
When you access your subconscious mind, you bypass the ‘story’ and the recordings and memories that have been programmed there, through years of interpersonal and social interactions, that keep you chasing after temporary or illusionary happiness that is not actually what YOU truly want.
There, deep within, lies the answer to the question, ‘what do I truly want?’, not ‘what have I been programmed to want in the first 7 years of my life?’
One way of accessing your subconscious mind and finding out what you truly want is through regular meditation.
If you sit quietly, closing your eyes, and patiently and lovingly ask yourself this question, ‘What do I truly want?’, over and over again while allowing for all the answers to come up as they will and feeling each and everyone of them, over time, you’ll find yourself getting closer and closer to what you truly want.
Meditating in the space of your third eye, and visualizing all the answers that come up, while focusing on your feelings and emotions can help accelerate this process and make it even more effective for you.
Another way of getting the answer to this question, ‘What do I truly want?’ is via hypnosis (which is not unlike meditation in many ways.) In this deeply relaxed and receptive state, you can easily bypass the analytical mind and establish a dialogue with your subconscious mind that can help you become aware of what you truly and deeply want.
You can also use an ancient technology, developed over thousands of years in the Ayurveda tradition, known as ‘marmaas’, and apply a process of breath and gentle pressure to various points in your body to access and reprogram your subconscious mind in a more empowering way.
If the program that’s been running in your system isn’t bringing about happiness and inner peace, changing it for one that you consciously, wisely, and discerningly choose for yourself is the first step towards achieving that which you want most in life.
Of course, these are just some of the few different ways to access and change the program in your subconscious mind. There are others, like for instance accessing your Akashic Records, and receiving spiritual guidance at that level, or the Family Constellations approach, which also helps reconfigure what’s been subconsciously recorded and stored in your system and unknowingly drives your day to day decisions and life results.
We’ve found these five to be some of the most powerful and effective ways of finding out our true and deepest intentions and freeing ourselves from conditioned-in programs that we know won’t truly make us happy.
If finding out what you truly want is meaningful to you and you’re interested in learning how to answer this question, ‘What do I truly want?’ from a deep place within yourself, we’d love to help in any way we can.
You can either ask us directly during a session or a relevant workshop, and we’d be happy to guide you through any one of these different approaches to getting the answer to this most important question, or any other question that you have been wanting to answer for yourself.
