Mastering the self is arguably the most important thing we can do in life. Through self-mastery (knowing thyself) all doors that can be opened to us will be. In this video and article, we’ll discuss four aspects of self: the higher self, the ideal self, the ego self, and the shadow self. In particular, the ideal self can be used as a tool for healing trauma, creating better habits, revealing deleterious subconscious programs, and manifesting our higher nature.

In psychology and philosophy, we have different conceptual tools that help us in working with consciousness. The hierarchy of self, so to speak, is a model I developed for my own self-work that has helped me greatly in overcoming hurdles, growing as a person, healing emotional upheaval, and integrating my shadow. This model is partially based on the Law of One scheme of understanding consciousness and growth, which I outline in the below video.

PS: I wrote a short ebook about this method, which I will be releasing soon.
