“He who looks outside dreams. He who looks inside wakes”-Carl Jung #mentalhealth #selfreflection #selfcare #mindfulness #values

Carl Jung was a psychiatrist and early developer of psycho-analytical psychology and personality types from the early 1900s.  The entirety of his work and research was majority based on self-reflection.  This quote can be simplified to encourage us to look inside ourselves for the answers we are seeking.

The challenge this week is to connect to your inner-core for the answers you seek.  When you find yourself looking outside for a solution, reconnect inside to your own feelings and thoughts. It’s easy to search for answers from others, especially friends, family or people who’ve had similar experiences to us, but you know you best!  Ask yourself, “How do I feel right now about this?” “What is my initial gut-reaction?,” “If a friend asked me this, what would I tell them?” Give yourself a different perspective to connect to your inner-conscience and values.  Through this, I hope you awaken your inner-guidance, find confidence in yourself and trust that you have all you need to make the best decisions!
