To many of us, self-awareness is like a mythical unicorn:

Sometimes we catch fleeting glimpses of it. But as soon as we’ve spotted it, it vanishes into thin air.

What is this mysterious quality that we think we possess, but actually rarely do? Most importantly, WHY is self-awareness so important?

Being self-aware is an essential part of the spiritual journey. In fact, without this fundamental quality, there can be no hope of spiritual or psychological growth. Self-awareness is the very first stepping stone towards expanded consciousness and experiences such as:

Deeper self-understanding
More self-compassion
Increased love for others
