Self-Actualization and becoming an authentic human being, knowing the higher identity and divine purpose for unique expression, is the goal of spiritual ascension. Awakening to embody our soul and spirit is to ultimately achieve self-realization into complete personal autonomy governed by our higher consciousness, which grants us spiritual freedom and cosmic citizenship beyond the fetters of time. To achieve self-ownership, one must make the effort to know their innermost selves, understand how their body and consciousness works, and become aware of personal motivations and perceptions that influence their life decisions and quality of lifestyle. To master ourselves on the earth plane is to attain self-mastery, which is the process by which a person may have the freedom to take control over the direction of their own life, body, mind and spirit. To accept Personal Autonomy or sovereignty over one's complete self, also means that person must accept self-responsibility no matter what has happened to them. As you increase your use of free will, you also increase the responsibility for your own actions and reactions, taking ownership over your life and the direction of your consciousness body.
