WHAT IS SELF-INQUIRY?
All healing is a return to love, primarily healthy self-love. That’s because our primary relationship is the one we have with ourselves, not with others, even as children. And our deepest desire to actually know ourselves as loving and loveable, whole and complete, and to simply be ourselves in the world (‘I just want to be me!’) can be realised through self-inquiry. ‘Who am I?’ is the question all of us are asking even if we don’t articulate it as such. ‘Who am I really?’
Self-inquiry will help you find out who you really are, and be your authentic self in the world. We will dive deep into ‘Who am I?’, this fundamental and most personal of questions. Answers to all other questions (including ‘What do I want?’) fall into place when we really get the answer to this one. Knowing the truth of who we are enables us to fully heal the emotional upsets, shocks, traumas and abuses that have held us back in our lives, and to clearly see and dissolve the many ways we sabotage our happiness and fulfilment.
The journey of recovery and awakening to being truly you is both emotional and spiritual (‘psycho-spiritual’). If we are to know our wholeness, both emotional recovery and spiritual recovery are required. They are intertwining paths, for emotional recovery will not deliver us to happiness without spiritual awareness of our truest nature (we can all too easily get stuck in our stories and emotions), yet a spiritual foundation is always unstable without the ability to fully embrace all our thoughts and feelings however hidden, uncomfortable and frightening they may be. An integrated response to life’s challenges, which includes both paths, delivers us to the truth of who we are.
Eventually, when we really get who we are, and allow ourselves to be fully present with all that is going on for us, life becomes increasingly spacious and joyful, intimate and abundant. And so much easier! We feel powerful and liberated. We experience our true aliveness! And everything begins to fall into place …
HOW ROBIN RAVENHILL CAN HELP
My primary focus is helping people find out who they are, and to be authentically themselves in the world, happy and fulfilled. My approach is intuitive, engaged, and compassionate. I work with people from all backgrounds and beliefs (or none), including children.
I help people who feel something important is missing in their lives, who would love to know who they really are and what they really want. You may lack direction and purpose, suffer from doubt and low self-esteem, have ongoing relationship issues, or be dissatisfied with your work. You may have experienced loss, trauma or abuse and find yourself struggling to recover. Perhaps you’re still suffering even after trying ‘everything’.
