What It Took
Most people suffer from limiting beliefs at some point in their lives. It’s also very common to avoid looking at those limiting beliefs, to consider how they began, or give ourselves the opportunity to learn how to release them.
I now teach others what I had to learn.
As it turns out, I was someone who didn’t want to look. I’d had a pretty fortunate life and much to be grateful for. It seemed more adult and more admirable to concentrate on the good parts. But I have to call BS on that strategy. Because unfortunately, for far too many years, I didn’t understand why I felt stupid, crazy, ugly, and worthless.
I worked hard at making me and my life look as though everything was peachy.
In reality my fears, insecurities and limiting self-beliefs showed up in both my professional and personal life. They annoyingly tagged along to each and every one of my relationships.
Fortunately, when I reached my version of rock bottom that’s when things started to get really interesting. That’s also when assistance introduced itself to me in a more direct way. What a weirdly wonderful mind-blowing time that was. I followed every suggestion and embraced healthier thoughts, habits, self-beliefs, and a new, wider perspective. I looked at when and why those old self-beliefs first showed up. As I took responsibility for the life experiences I was creating, everything within and without started to shift for the better.
I didn’t back then and I’m still not doing this alone. Reaching my wits end was the beginning of opening to intuitive guidance. Initially, there was a lot of shyly peeking around the corner at it. These days our relationship and partnership is evolving as I co-create my life experiences with higher energy.
My journey now is fascinating, often humorous, and still sometimes challenging as something else shows up for me to look at.
Now I assist others to look and learn from their own experiences, and to allow for way more lightheartedness and joy. If we don’t look to understand when and why certain patterns are present, the patterns continue. It’s clarity, not blame, not judgement, but clarity and seeing our choices and taking action that assists us in healing, becoming stronger, and lighter.
