Ever pay attention to your thoughts and accompanying feelings during your day? Perhaps, hearing certain ones over and over; along with the same feelings, over and over too?
Stick with em’ and really listen to their force, diction and feeling, often there’s lack at the base.
“I can’t do that”
“I can’t have that”
“I am not enough or good enough”
“This is it, there ain’t no more”
And so on.
Noticing the majority of our thoughts as repetitive and imaginably, centered on lack and limitation; it colors our present and future. Reminding us of how we not only don’t deserve more, but apparently life appears to work against us.
In looking back on my life, the events where I felt burdened, heavy, angry and just plain sad–were generated by my thoughts and feelings; it created my perspective. I couldn’t help myself. I remember saying hopeless words to myself while trying to dress up a pile of shit, into a fashion model.
Excuses, blame, and inertia go together. It can fool us into thinking this is it! We’re unable to move toward fulfillment. If “Life is hard” is truth, we create it and should ask, “what am I afraid of having happen?”
Leaving the unfulfilling known hardship, because the known misery is safer than the unknown, is frightening!
Just as the statement “life is great” is only truth, if we create it.
Notice the lack inside of us causes us to focus on lack outside of us; it’s a reflection. But, we don’t see it as a reflection, we see it as a prison.
If you read my posts or listen to my radio show, I speak to the power within us. It’s a disservice buying into the belief(s) around lack, and remaining afraid of doing something different.
Recently, I signed up to work with a business coach; deep inside me I knew two things.
First, unless I did something different my business would always be the same and it scared me; it was a limiting thought, because of where I WANT to go. The second reason was I needed the discomfort of the unknown; not just listening to my coach, but trusting I would enact her words…believing in myself, I could do it!
It took me understanding no one was going to wave a magic wand and my life would change. It had nothing to do with change in others or my outer circumstances. I had to release what was steering my ship toward unnecessary rough waters.
Most of us have an iron grip on our daily routines holding on for dear life; it’s familiar! Wake up, go to work or do yoga or walk the dog or __________, work more, come home, then what?
As much as we state we’re miserable, we can’t give up the confines of our day, by doing something different. Nope, we like to face the same challenges, over and over.
But……What if? We find expansion in life? Possibility? Freedom, excitement, creativity, passion and love?
Moving out of lack, impossibilities or let’s call it what it is….fear, we’re so insignificant, so undeserving and doomed to fail, lose or fall down, by believing our authentic truth….that we stop.
We DO NOT trust ourselves.
I’ve spoken with amazingly creative people and yet, they don’t paint, dance, write or draw.
I’ve spoken with people in dysfunctional relationships (mainly with themselves) and they stay put, afraid of what change will bring.
I’ve spoken with people who say they must sacrifice and yet never arrive–because they only know struggle and sacrifice.
I’ve spoken with people afraid to express what’s deep within them, instead continuing with a life of quiet desperation.
And so on.
Lack parades inside of us with many disguises; making it hard to locate, unless we purposefully listen.
Taking those false thoughts around limitation, getting momentarily uncomfortable and advancing from lack to abundance requires courage. So, the artist picks up his or her brush, the person stuck in dysfunction realizes he or she is never really alone, he or she speaks the impacted words knowing true relief and those who sacrifice realize they can focus not on ‘less’ but more, reflecting their own inner trust.
Don’t let the lack in your head keep you stuck, trust your gut and your joy to move you. If you’d like to discover how ready you are to move into abundance, schedule a complimentary discovery session with me.
