"I always said I wanted to be somebody.
Now I realize I should have been more specific"

- Lily Tomlin, Comedienne, Actress

WHO ARE YOU?


Who are you? A simple question; and yet the answer can span from the simple to the profound.

How do YOU answer this question? Maybe you answer "I am Lauren" or "I am a coach" or "I am the daughter of Joy and Jerry" or "I am the mother of Katelyn and Kevin". Or maybe you answer "I am a spiritual being having a human experience" or "I am the child of God".

Is there one right answer? Or do they all apply? What if I asked you, "Who are you TRULY?"

You are not your ROLE of mother, daughter, sister, wife, professional, business owner. You are not your checking account, with your worth fluctuating like your balance. You are not the car you drive, the house you live in, the business you own, or how much money you make.

You are not your children. You are not your expectations, your beliefs or your values. And you are not what people think of you either.

You are not your thoughts. You can observe your thoughts, so who is observing?

You are not your emotions, for you can observe your emotions. Who is observing?

You are not your body. It is a glorious temple that houses you, and you are not your body.

So WHO ARE YOU? Finding the answer to this question, can lead you on an amazing journey - to your Self!

Action Steps:

1) Start your day by taking some quiet time to ask your Self "Who Am I?" and journal your answer. Notice if your answer changes over time.

2) As a meditation exercise, find a nice spot outside where you can sit comfortably and quietly for 15 minutes and see the sky.

  • Take 3-4 deep breaths, focusing your attention on your breath. This brings you into the present moment.
  • Ask "Who Am I?" and observe the thoughts that come up. Notice that you are observing your thoughts. Ask "Who is Observing?"
  • Ask again "Who Am I?" and observe the response and notice your body and what comes up. Ask "Who is observing my body?"
  • Ask again "Who Am I?" and notice the emotions or feelings that come up. Ask "Who is Observing the feelings?"
  • Ask again "Who Am I?" and...
    • notice the sky
    • notice the clouds
    • notice Nature


    Keep asking until your 15 minutes are complete. You might want to take a few moments and journal your answers. Repeat this on a weekly basis for a month and notice if there are any changes.

In Spirit,

“Imagine being able to approach your finances with a sense of optimism, clarity and openness, instead of dread. “Money is congealed energy”, said Joseph Campbell, “and releasing it releases life’s possibilities.”  In her book, The Energy of Money, Dr. Maria Nemeth draws upon her more than twenty years’ experience in synthesizing spiritual and practical techniques to create a revolutionary program for freeing your financial energy to achieve personal life goals and financial wealth.


Dr. Nemeth says “How you do money, is how you do life”, so bringing awareness to your actions will  allow you to wake up new possibilities for actively harnessing the energy of money. Combining a complete self-help and self-discovery regimen with proven methods of money management, this powerhouse guide to prosperity presents twelve principles for enlightened money management.” – from The Energy of Money


“I have explored the subjects of Abundance and Prosperity for years and Dr. Nemeth’s The Energy of Money is a brilliant  blend of inner work and practical outer work – you must have both! I’m passionate about this material and want to share it with you in a format that will inspire you, support you and challenge you – in a loving way – to transform your relationship with money. A virtual Book Club/Success Group is a great format; and Dr. Nemeth has personally given me her blessing to offer this to you! I  believe you will receive incredible value and results from participating! Warning: this is not for the faint of heart. If you do the work, your life *will* change!” – Lauren Lee
