Become Self Realized

Updated on February 29, 2008

Becoming a Self Realized Being

Self-realization is a term many use. However, what exactly does self-realization mean? In this article, I will give a definition of self-realization and follow with what steps we need to take to become self-realized.

Self-realization is the state of complete alignment of the personality self to the Authentic Self or Divine Self.

To understand this, we must have awareness of our connection to Authentic Self, what the personality self consists of, and what it means to align the personality self to the Authentic Self.

The Authentic Self is referred to by different names such as the Higher Self, the Essential Self, the Soul Self, the Identity, and others. It is the Self that comes into body when we come into physicality. As we master the art of awareness, we become increasingly aware of this aspect of who we are, which is eternal. In the beginning of our spiritual quest, the Authentic Self communicates with us through deep urgings. These urgings motivate us to embark on a spiritual quest in whatever form that may be for us at the time. The Authentic Self may also urge us to make life decisions such as a career change, a relationship change, and so forth.

Through focusing, strengthening and expanding our awareness of both our personality self and Authentic Self, our communication with the Authentic Self becomes clearer. When we become more advanced in the work, the Authentic Self gives us essences, or unstructured energy impulses for us to align our personality self to. Therefore, what does it mean to align the personality self?

The personality self consists of three bodies of structure, the mental, the emotional and physical bodies. Each body has a different function and purpose. We also have unstructured bodies such as the energy body, the intuitive body, the casual body and so on. However, when aligning to the Authentic Self we must begin with the three bodies of structure.

In simple terms, to align means to adjust our thoughts (mental body), our feelings (emotional body), and actions (physical body) to the Authentic Self. For example, if you have an urge to do something that seems more harmonious with your spiritual path you align the human personality to it. Specifically, you think thoughts that are in alignment with the urge. You feel feelings that are in alignment with the urge. Then you take physical actions that are in alignment with the urge.

The more you do this the stronger the connection and communication will be from your Authentic Self. As you advance on your path and are able to have awareness of direct essences from the Authentic Self, and you continually align the mental, emotional and physical bodies to these essences, your structured, personality self begins to become one with your Authentic Self. As your personality self aligns to your Authentic Self, your life manifests in alignment to your Authentic Self. When complete alignment occurs, you are Self-Realized. You realize your Authentic Self completely in your personality self and in your life. For those who are on a Toltec Path, this state is called "burning from the fire within." Your Authentic Self completely transforms your personality self, sometimes called by the Toltecs your human tonal, in total alignment with who you are at your energetic core. At your energetic core lies your Divine Self. You and your Divine Self become one and you become self-realized.

As you go about your day, recall those deep desires, those urgings from within that compel you to heal, grow, develop and evolve. Those urgings come from your Divine Self. Align your thoughts, feelings and actions to those desires and urgings. As you do so, the path of self-realization will open to you.
