When we come into this physical existence, we already know ALL of the universal truths:
- ABUNDANCE and LIMITLESSNESS and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
- We KNOW that we are worthy of LOVE and JOY
- We KNOW that the Universe is a SAFE place and it WILL PROVIDE everything that we need.
But as soon as we arrive on this physical plane, we start to get clear messages from those around us of the limiting beliefs that are so prevalent in the world:
- SCARCITY and LACK and LIMITATION and FEAR
- UNWORTHINESS and ORIGINAL SIN
- WORRY that we won’t get what we need and that the Universe is a HOSTILE PLACE governed by chaos.
We buy into the belief that life HAS to be a struggle – that joy is something we MIGHT be worthy of (briefly) but only AFTER we struggle sufficiently. That we aren’t inherently worthy of love and feeling good. We learn that we have to work hard for the good stuff OR that sometimes even working hard isn’t enough and sometimes the chaos just gives us shitty stuff no matter how hard we work or try for the good stuff.
As we gain direct experience in life, these beliefs and messages get reinforced. So after the initial “sponge” period of childhood (age 0-8ish) where our subconscious mind is programmed with all of the prevalent beliefs in our environment, we begin to put these beliefs into practice in our lives. We begin to “give out” these limiting ideas and beliefs with our thoughts, words and actions. So what we “get back” from life is evidence that matches what we are giving out.
We get into a cycle of this and get stuck there in that “self-fulfilling prophecy.” We often feel frozen there – knowing that we don’t like it* BUT not knowing how to break out of that cycle.
Eventually our life circumstances will get so unbearable that something “snaps” and we decide that we’ve had enough. Or sometimes we hit “rock bottom,” or maybe our tolerance of the shitty stuff and shitty feelings just wears out.
THAT is the beginning of our remembering and we begin to remember the truth we were born knowing.
Sometimes it comes in one grand event but more often it comes in the smaller moments of “That’s it, I’m tired of this shit! There’s got to be a better way.”
So we begin (or renew) our search for answers. We read books, talk to a therapist, go to a meet up, google stuff, read articles and blogs – and along the way we find nuggets of wisdom that jog our memory. We receive messages that resonate with something deep in our hearts. It might be something we can’t quite put our fingers on, but we just KNOW that there’s a message in it for us. It just sounds true and it feels GOOD. These nuggets shine a light to illuminate our path back to the truth.
So we keep searching and listening and watching for these clues. They’re like bread crumbs along the path to help us find our way back home:
To help us remember what our True Self already knows.
To show us the way to a life of ease and joy.
A life free of fear and anxiety and worry and ALL of those unhelpful and unproductive things that feel awful.
Once we begin to find answers, that resonate with us, it’s like a light shining in the darkness. We begin to feel better even if only for short periods. That gives us hope and motivation to keep looking for ALL the answers we need to hear. Eventually we hit on something that feels like THE THING we have been searching for.
Once we find THAT thing it’s like time speeds up and it feels like we’re flying! Changes begin to happen more and more rapidly. We begin to shift, and experience more and more of the joy and freedom we KNOW is possible, but never could have dreamed of just a short time ago.
Once this begins to happen we can look back on the time when we felt frozen in the pain, despair and unsupportive thought patterns, and it feels like that whole time was “just a moment” even though when we were in it it felt like it might never end. It felt like we’d been frozen there forever and we might never escape.
Sometimes this process can feel like we are just taking a shot in the dark – even when we get confirmation that we’re on the “right path.” But the nuggets of wisdom that bring us the good feelings propel us forward as we bring back the TRUTH to our awareness. That feeling of “bringing it all back” into our conscious awareness is magical.
This path of awakening is not always linear, and often there WILL be bumps and obstacles and icky feelings along the way, but we CAN remember what we forgot.
No matter how lost we sometimes feel we ARE worth saving – even though it feels like a long shot – we CAN “have it all!” WE DESERVE IT!
In the moments when you find an answer you’ve been seeking, or notice evidence in your life that things are shifting for you: CELEBRATE! That helps solidify the remembering. That helps strengthen the neural pathways in our brains for the “new” beliefs and thoughts that create and support the good stuff that we are wanting in our lives.
CELEBRATION IS WHERE IT’S AT!!! Celebrate it ALL!
Celebrating EVERY good feeling and experience – no matter how “small” will magnify it and help you create more.
Don’t worry if it looks for feels silly!
Don’t worry if someone is watching!
You’re worth it! More good stuff and more good feelings are TOTALLY worth the tiny moment of embarrassment.
Soon you won’t give a shit if people are watching!
All of the great stuff you are experiencing in your life will be the only thing that matters.
Heaps of Love to you ALL!
