We’re all an experience in progress, as is my definition of who I AM. Since the last post in my I AM Series, my definition has evolved:


I AM an eternal spiritual being who has chosen to have this temporary physical experience for the purpose of growing in faith, awareness, and the ability to love unconditionally.


I AM an eternal, multi-dimensional, spiritual being who has chosen to fragment into this temporary aspect to physically experience ascending in consciousness.

i am that I AM:

  • i am: my separated self—ego and personality—in this fragmented, temporary aspect of my whole, unified self.
  • that: my true multi-dimensional nature—many aspects, simultaneously experiencing reality from different perspectives, in many dimensions and timelines. I am that and that and that.
  • I AM: Unity consciousness—Source, God—in the infinite, eternal NOW….

King James 2000: Exodus 3:13-14

13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers has sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, I AM has sent me unto you.

As part of my exploration of I AM, I recently enjoyed listening to Matt Kahn’s deconstruction of the Biblical phrase “i am that I AM”. Here’s a summary of Matt’s interpretation; you may listen to his full talk in the video below:

i am that I AM

Transcribed from the recorded presentation: “I am that I AM” ~Matt Kahn, Aug 13, 2019

i am = the little ‘i’. The individualized self. The ego.
Divinity in Potential.

THAT = a reference to anything—I am that, and that, and that.
The journey of expansion from i am to I AM, through which we learn that:
Everything is Source; Source is Everything.

I AM = the BIG I. GOD. Source. The One.
Divinity in Reality.

T.H.A.T. stands for:

Truth: Everything is truth because truth is the inclusion of all experiences and viewpoints in our lives. It is that, and that, and that….
Truth means how authentically you present yourself in the presence of others. The question of truth is: Where in your life do you not find yourself acting authentically? And, if you don’t act authentically, it’s because there’s a part of you that doesn’t feel safe. And, if there’s a part of you that doesn’t feel safe, that’s where we love—because we’re training our nervous system to be able to hold the frequency of higher vibrations of consciousness.

Honour: The counterpart of truth, honour is the quality of choices that you embrace when no one is looking.
When we do something privately that we know is not good for us, we are using it to hide from the lack of safety, the unworthiness, or the doubt that keeps us in the lower ‘i am’ perspective. This is why we love—we expose the hiding spot of our deepest vulnerabilities…bring it into the light so it can become the uppercase I AM of our highest potential.

Alignment: When we align Truth in the presence of people and Honour in the absence of people—those two qualities create Alignment.

Transcendence: We embody the ‘I AM’ within this ‘i am’ experience.
I will love myself so deeply that I stop resonating with fantasy and I come into the reality that I AM so interconnected to all beings that people around me start popping open and waking up.

The totality of Oneness of the All cannot be ‘experienced’. Instead, it is known by virtue of being it. The ‘I’ of the Self is the Eye of God witnessing the unfolding of Creation as Now. Sequence is an illusion created by the perception of the ‘I’ of the ego, which is the point of observation of the processing of the nonlocal to the local, of the nonlinear to the linear, of Allness to ‘this-ness’. Perception is the eye of the ego that, as it translates the inexperienceable Infinite to the experienceable finite, produces the perception of time, place, duration, dimension, position, form, limitation, and singularity.
