i am fascinated with the enneagram right now. it’s amazing. my best friend gina introduced it to me, and now i’m hooked. essentially the enneagram is a tool to help give us a better understanding of ourselves. you can learn more about it here and you can take the short version of the test and find out where you stand on the enneagram symbol here.
Taken from the website: “For thousands of years, spiritual teachers from many different traditions have reminded us of the richness of the human soul and its spiritual gifts. But without real self-knowledge, it is not possible to awaken to the deeper truths of the soul or to sustain whatever degree of realization we have attained.
One of the most powerful tools for understanding ourselves is the Enneagram, an ancient symbol of unity and diversity, change and transformation.”
how cool is it that this exists? it’s quite complex, if you really delve into layers of of the symbol, what your wings are, etc. there are books and studies and research done on this. who knew?
i took the free online test and i came out a “type 7” aka “the enthusiast” which gina predicted i’d be (she knows me well). and it’s dead on. at my best i: “assimilate experiences in depth, making them deeply grateful and appreciative for what they have. become awed by the simple wonders of life: joyous and ecstatic. intimations of spiritual reality, of the boundless goodness of life.” and if you want to know what i am at my worst you can read the whole thing here.
i’d be really curious to know what you are. if you’re interested, take the free online test and leave a comment with the result. this could be fun. and interesting. and insightful.
