How To Unpack Your Authentic Self to Be Remarkably Happy

How to unpack your authentic self to be remarkably happy is about accepting your TrueSelf, the good, bad, and ugly ⏤ what makes you irreplaceably you, without needing to compete, compare or beg for approval.

A New Fun Way To Unpack Your Stinky Laundry

How many of us rush through unpacking or ignore it altogether. What if instead, we looked at each piece of dirty laundry, and instead of UGH, this blouse smells, think ⏤ OMG I wore this blouse when we ate at the tiny bistro with views of the Eifel Tower. It’s a small mind shift with a big impact.

If you’re ready for a huge awakening to a new paradigm shift in personality typing with a spiritual understanding, it might be time to book a 15-minute discovery call. Click below to get on my schedule.

Unpacking Your Authentic Self

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.

Carl Jung, a famous psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and the founder of analytical psychology

Can you see how unpacking using this new mind shift can open you up to fresh new ways of thinking about unpacking your suitcase? What if we used a fresh approach, a new mind shift, to unpack your Divinely Inspired personality type, your personal reality. Your personality, coupled with your life stories makes you, uniquely you, unlike any other person on the planet.

WOW! Get out your journal and write this down. Take ten, twenty, or however long you need to reflect on what this means to you. #journalprompt

Let’s go back to the suitcase example. We often dread unpacking because we don’t see its value as we did packing for a trip. The excitement is gone. It works the same in life. Here’s how. We often stray from our authentic selves, starting early as childhood, to be accepted, loved, and seen. Yes, we believe it’s exciting to be part of the crowd and go along because we want to belong. We don’t want to be different for fear of criticism or seen as strange, unlovable, or isolated from the community.

A social psychology experiment called Asch confirms the need to conform. But what if the things we think are peculiar, abnormal, or strange are the things that would bring us our greatest joy, happiness, and peaceful-legacy-living. Let’s look at travel, and then I want to come back to this thought.

Unpacking Your Authentic Self is Like Visiting a Destination

Visiting a new place always leaves an impression. Think about it. How many places try to be like another or blend in? Can you imagine Paris trying to copy New York City or vice versa? Think about it. Each city, small or large, offers its own vibe, a personality if you will, overflowing with stories, history, culture, neighborhoods, and memorable meals. It’s the allure of travel because these places often leave us with unforgettable memories.

Back to the thought of being peculiar, unconventional, or off-beat. Can you see how this could tie into your Divine personality? You, just like your favorite city, have an individual personality, defined by life stories, childhood history, society, and peer influences. Oh, and let’s not forget your Divine Self. All of this makes you; blissfully uncommon. Maybe the mind shift is thinking of yourself as an “original” never to be replicated again. What makes you this is a collection of:

  • Values
  • Characteristics
  • Life experiences
  • Beliefs
  • Religious or spiritual influences
  • Your assigned personality type – the key to unlocking your life mission
  • And you SoulSelf – your soul’s purpose

Unpack Your Authentic Self to Be Remarkably Happy

After years of being a perpetual pleaser, trying to get everyone to like me, I hit a 7-year life tsunami. Back then, I had a casual awareness of spirituality and a drive-by awareness of my personality type. However, I wasn’t aware of my personality type that needed to be brought into balance. It was a time of great spiritual awakening and personal growth. A time to understand my spiritual self had to walk hand-in-hand with my human self to live an authentic life. A life of peace, harmony, and joy, while realizing life challenges are aspects of soul growth to be embraced and experienced through my personality type, my personal reality.

I share this to let you know without challenging life experiences. I’d still be playing the pleasing game; striving to belong, staying in my lane, competing and comparing, and doing what I thought would gain me the most approval. At the same time, being a sad sack and letting my ego-personality suck the life out of me. UGH!

Have you ever bitten your tongue, going along with groupthink, or said yes when you meant no, to belong, to fit in, and loved – it’s a human challenge we all face.

The Hans Christian Anderson classic, The Little Mermaid, is a beautiful example of our need to be loved and accepted. Ariel is willing to give up a peerless part of herself for love. For many of us, through challenging experiences, we’ve come to know, the relationship with ourselves is the most important of all. We begin to recognize false aspects of ourselves that haunt us daily until we go within and accept our authentic selves for who we are; flawed, exquisite, intricate, and beautiful individuals.


So what if knowing your authentic self allowed you to share your messy, imperfectly-perfect you. Knowing your personality type gives you the confidence to understand why you’re thinking or reacting as you do, allowing you to self-correct as you go without the constant self-doubt ⏤ or the need to fit in!

You’ve gone deep, you’ve done the work, and you have a great appreciation of your struggles and your superpowers. You accept yourself for who you are, and funny enough, you attract incredible people in your life; a great love, friendships, and business associates that can’t get enough of the “real you.”

Change me Divine Beloved into One who always remembers my true nature. Wake me from the trance of separation from you. Use me according to Your Will as a force of love on the planet.”
