Moving forward is a change that brings up much fear for many.
It is connected to many different and common fears that most aren’t aware of.
Moving forward is about letting go. It is about creating change and disrupting your “comfortable” space. It is about movement and newness. It is about placing yourself in unknown territory. And it is about Faith and Trust.
Moving forward isn’t always so easy for some. They prefer to stay stuck, frustrated and angry.
We all have a money story. Each individual’s experience is self created despite what that story is.
If you are in a place where your story is one of lack or poverty, chances are that your beliefs will highlight that you did not create this.
Those that are in a more abundant space, will certainly own up to their story, that they did indeed create their current reality.
When you are stuck in a negative money story, you create experiences, cycles, patterns and loops that just keep repeating themselves.
If you knew how much punishing yourself hurt you, then why do you still do it?
You have experienced pain on many levels. Mental, emotional, spiritual, physical. But on the emotional level, this is where you hurt yourself the most.
Keeping yourself in pain isn’t doing you any good. So why do you stay there?
If you were to take a deeper look at the type of ways that you punish yourself, you wouldn’t believe your own eyes.
When another does it, someone who is outside of you, that is when you can clearly see it and you don’t like it one bit. So why do you do it to yourself?
When you worship you are putting someone or something up on a pedestal.
You are already setting yourself up for failure.
For when you see everything outside of you as being better, giving it more energy and making it untouchable, then you do not see yourself clearly.
Yes you can have passions towards something or someone. Yes you can care very much about something or someone outside of you.
But when you put so much focus on something outside of you, this causes problems.
Why are we not allowed to be who we want to be, have what we want and be free?
Sometimes the perspectives of others pull us back. They make us feel like we are not good enough. That we are not allowed to express ourselves and so on.
But they are not the ones to blame.
We are the ones who must take responsibility for what we accept, how we feel and how we react.
If we are accepting ourselves to feel shamed, we are saying that we are not loved, not accepted and have nothing to offer. That we are nothing.
But deep down that is not the truth. The truth is that there is nothing to be ashamed of. We are all beautiful and unique. And we were not born to fit into the mould that others want us to be in.
We all have fears. They challenge us, anger us, push us into a corner and keep us stuck.
Yet how do you overcome them?
Fears are just emotion. Just like happiness but the opposite.
Fears feel heavy, they are scary, intimidating and quite often a huge barrier where you can’t see what is on the other side.
But if you push fear aside and decide not to look at it closely, it will either slip away and connect itself to you on a deeper level, and it will mostly certainly jump out and scare you just when you thought you had a handle on it.
You have fears. You know what they are.
When you play small, who is it really serving?
When you limit yourself or be something you are not, who are you making happy?
Unfortunately this is a common theme among humanity.
You play and splash about in the small pond because you think that you will drown in the big pond.
You dumb yourself down so that others will be happy. So that others will follow you. So that others will love you.
But what part of you do they really love? The limiting part of you?
Or the magnificent part? A part you haven’t even touched upon yet?
We all have triggers. We all have drivers.
What motivates one person, does not motivate another.
What lifts one person up, brings another down.
What is your driver?
Driving forces in life are about what motivates you to change and greatness.
What is it that pushes you forward past the pain and the stagnant place in your life to want to lift yourself up for more? For better?
What keeps you down? And why do you let yourself stay there?
Every relationship is the mirror of you. Simple.
It is a hard concept to understand when you don’t see it. But if you choose to look deeper within this theory you will see patterns that match your own.
What comes forth in your experience is what is vibrating from within.
Even those pesky people in your space who are needy, controlling, unsupportive, addictive, unloving, uncommitting etc.
They all reflect some part of you.
Self Love is often misunderstood. It is not about looking in the mirror and telling yourself that you love you.
Self Love reflects all of our choices in life. It is who we are, who we become, how we treat ourselves and let others treat us, it is in our journey and experiences in life.
When you practice Self Love, it is truly life changing.
Some of the misconceptions of Self Love, is what it actually is.
If you keep getting the same experiences in life where you are taken advantage of, disrespected, feel alone or fear your journey in life you are not practicing Self Love.
