“Personality is the sense of being separated from your essence; a sense of self created by us.” I had my jaw dropped at just the opening words of the Enneagram worskhop. Unlike most personality tests I have taken, Enneagram impressed me with its deep purpose and meaningful ways of getting to know myself. I have always thought that knowledge of personality types ends at knowing what sort of person I am, and who others are. I used to think that negative characters of certain types are ends in itself. I thought it was normal to stay behaving in certain negative ways because of our personalities. The three levels of each personality taught by Siewfan is good news for everyone. At every type, there are healthy, average and unhealthy levels. The best part is we are taught practical techniques on how to move up to the healthiest level of each personality type in us.
This Enneagram workshop enables me to relate and understand other human beings better, accepting everyone and seeing everything as one, especially after getting to know that each person possesses all types. We seek to understand one another rather than judging or criticizing.
I get to feel that personalities are boxes I choose to be in, instead of who I am. The practical exercises have enabled me to feel inner silence, away from the mind. The Enneagram workshop has given me the opportunity to understand better my spirit. It was truly a spiritual experience for me.
I intend to continue practicing tapping – a technique of tapping for your highest level and lessening the lower levels – attending to and integrating all inner child in me so that I become whole again.
I would certainly love to learn more about how to move up the highest level where we can feel our original essence and live our purpose by recognizing our desires and eliminating all sorts of fears. Knowing that Enneagram can help transform my self, there is no other thing more urgent for me than working on myself even if it takes a lifetime.
Thank you Siewfan, for the unique and most useful workshop I have ever attended!
