In this Ask Harmony podcast Harmony answers a follower’s question:

“How can I be myself when I don’t know how to be the real me, when I don’t even know who the real me is? All I can see is the way others want to see me as.”

Harmony discusses way the ego is shaped and how it generates all the thoughts in the forefront of our mind to create our identity and personality. When we believe our ego is who we are, we allow ourselves to get pulled away from ourselves. Our true self is our spiritual nature, that part of us that is full of love and trust and solution. To learn how to connect to this deeper place, you will be guided through a short meditation.

Are you speaking your truth or are you just projecting?

It’s common to see our relationships through the lens of unconscious memories of people from our past (projections), through barriers or walls to intimacy (deflections), through old ideas from the past about who we are (introjections), through shame and guilt (retroflections), or through the opinions of others (confluence). In Gestalt psychotherapy, we call these Contact Boundary Disturbances. All of these disturbances are patterned ways of being in relationships that we developed early in life in an attempt to find safety and keep connection. These were adaptable strategies that helped us when we didn’t yet know how to stand in our dignity and our truth.
