The Truth Beneath Your Limiting Beliefs
Today I woke up, drank some coffee, met with a client, and decided to pause everything else on my to-do list and spend some time with nature. I walked through trees, got my sneakers nice and dirty, and allowed myself to just be.
My thoughts drifted in and out. Anytime I found that they’d taken me for a ride I came back to the moment. The trees. The dirt under my feet. My breath moving in and out of my belly. Nature reminds me:
LIFE IS REALLY SO SIMPLE.
But boy do we complicate it. Watch your words. How many times do you say things that limit you? Things like:
It’s really hard…
I don’t know why/how…
I have spent the past few months being very mindful about my language. I was shocked by how often I focused on negativity and how many phrases I used that brought my vibration down. With a little practice it became easier to speak from a place of trust instead of scarcity, and I found my feelings came into alignment with my words.
How often do you say things with scorn or judgement? The other day I was telling a friend of mine about a particular attachment style in which a person understands their emotions and needs and can express them with ease (basically what I’m looking for in my next partner). He laughed and said, “It’s gonna be really hard to find a guy like that.” Without skipping a beat I said, “Nope. Not true.”
That is not my belief. I'm not allowing that into my awareness. I have limited myself enough. There has been enough struggle. It’s time to let life be as simple as it really is.
There was a time, about five years ago, when I believed I might be single forever, that I would never meet a man who would really get me. I have dated several fantastic men and grown tremendously as a person since I let go of that one.
There was a time when I believed that I’d have to work really, really hard for a little bit of money. Now I sometimes make $1,000 in exchange for an hour of my time and energy.
And, yes, there was a time when I thought it was going to be hard to find a man with the qualities who would match me well. I’ve let that go because I know I have to, and I know it’s not true. It’s fear.
I had a vision in a healing session not long ago where my ex was standing with his back to me, and I was doing everything I could to get his attention. There was this man far behind me in the distance calling my name. That man was my future partner. He was everything I’ve ever wanted in a partner, and he was there calling to me, trying to get my attention. But I was so focused on getting my ex’s attention that I couldn’t hear him.
In that simple vision I realized that holding on was holding me back from what I actually wanted. Holding on to the belief that I knew my ex was the right person for me was actually holding me back from the man who truly was.
Life is really so simple.
Let go of your beliefs.
Let go of your limiting thinking.
Let go of your judgements.
Let go of your negativity.
Focus on the beauty.
Focus on the things that make you feel good.
Focus on the joy.
Focus on the fun.
Life is really so simple.
