I have been on this journey of self exploration for a very long time. And I don't believe it will end until the day that I die. For me, discovering where I have come from, where I am today, and where I am going is a fantastic journey. Yes, I have worked very hard at getting rid of the many limiting beliefs that might sound familiar to you: not good enough, loser, not too smart, you were born this way, unworthy, and on and on. Letting go of the old belief system allows the new to enter, and how magnificent it is!
So, you ask how? How do I get rid of that old nagging voice that keeps me limited, stuck, repeating old patterns that keep giving me the results I DON"T want? The simple answer, the key to success that I have seen over and over: write. Yes, writing. Not just any writing, but really writing out your deepest, darkest pains, negative thoughts and feelings. As a therapist and coach, I have guided many clients through this process, as it can get messy and overwhelming. The subconscious mind holds the treasures to our success. It also holds stories from the past, pains, fears, limitations. 95% of what we think, feel and do comes from the subconscious mind. Which means we are 'awake' to our lives only 5% of the time! That's terrifying in itself! Writing is the doorway to the subconscious mind. What are we running on? What is our autopilot? We cannot change what we don't know. So part of the journey, the exploring, is bringing to light the darkness that overshadows our greatness. We must be willing to see what keeps getting in the way. We can no longer function in our world with the lights off, if we really want to live our most purposeful life.
After thoughtful and heart-full writing, we throw it away - yes throw it away. It's the past, and we are finally committing to putting it to rest. I AM LETTING THIS GO is our final words then toss it, shred it, have a ceremonial burning party. It must be released, free yourself to now live - consciously creating the life of your dreams.
Now you are ready to start living. I mean really living - your story, your life, who you are truly meant to be! How exciting! See how this adventure now is what lies ahead, it paves the path to your success.
So, what do you want? What excites you? What gets you out of bed every day? It's time to claim it and live it.
