People often come to me with one common problem: They aren’t feeling good enough. They feel unworthy and have so many limiting beliefs that are preventing them from fulfilling their true potential. They feel that life could be better. But, when it comes to creating change, they often get scared of that change and the amount of work that is required. There is something which seems to be holding them back.
What’s actually happening is that they’ve unintentionally accepted many labels and beliefs about themselves, and these labels and beliefs now became part of their identity. They have been so deeply planted into their subconscious, they don’t even question them. All this ‘labelling’ often starts at the very young age, but of course, continues during their adult life too. When people fully align with these labels and beliefs, and never question them, they will always be reflected back to them. They will see the evidence of these labels everywhere around them. And this is perfectly understandable, because our outside world is a reflection of our inner state. What we believe about ourselves will always be, in some shape or form, reflected back to us in our physical reality.
Many of us have accepted these labels and beliefs so deeply, within the whole level of our being, that we don’t even question them anymore. We see them as facts.
‘This is the way I am and that’s what I should accept.’ (????)
We’ve aligned so fully with these damaging lies, and now they’re controlling so many areas of our life. Deep down we feel that something isn’t right. Something just feels a bit ‘off’. But when we try to understand where these beliefs and labels might have come from, we often become frighten and refuse to look deeper. We brush them aside and say to ourselves: ‘I’ll look at that another time, at a more appropriate time.’ But when exactly? When is the more appropriate time? And often, it never comes.
By doing so, we’ve just placed another brick on top of the ones which have already been so beautifully laid there, and we carry on as before. And more damage is done. The labels continue to control and haunt our lives, making us feel uncomfortable, fragile and uneasy, until we are willing to look at them again. If that day ever comes, of course.
It took me years to start looking at my own limiting beliefs and start dissolving them. It took me years to begin throwing away the old, outdated labels, which I have subconsciously accepted about myself in the past. But when I became willing to go deeper to question them and began exploring what laid underneath them, I was able to start letting them go.
So, where do you begin?
You begin, by becoming willing to question everything that doesn’t feel right to you. You begin, by becoming willing to question the opinions other people have about you. You begin, by becoming willing to question everything that seems to be controlling your life. It can be a label that you are not good enough, that you are unworthy, too shy, too loud, too____fill in the blank. You begin, by becoming willing to question everything and ask yourself: ‘Who said that? Where is the evidence for that?’ And I mean the real evidence. You need to go deeper and find the root of that which has been controlling you.
And then, you need to ask yourself:
‘What does lie beyond all my limiting beliefs & labels? And how can I go deeper to finally let them go?’
Let’s pause for a moment and breathe. As you are pausing and breathing, you are giving yourself a permission to align to the truth of who you really are. To your true identity, which is powerful, unique, loving, compassionate, beautiful and inspiring, beyond any labels you or the world have ever placed upon you. In truth, you are a powerful being, an infinite awareness that is currently expressing itself as a human. The more and more you align to that truth, the more you realise that even in this physical, three-dimensional reality, you are capable of so many incredible things. When you let go of all the labels you have unconsciously accepted about yourself, you suddenly become free.
Beyond all the pain, the lies, the beliefs and labels you have accepted resides your truth. Your divinity. Your true identity. Tune into your truth by stilling your busy mind on a daily basis. Turn down the volume, the noise of the world. And listen to that loving voice, which is the voice of your intuition. It always speaks to you, if you only took the time to listen. This voice is your truth. It is your guide. It is your internal compass. Turn down the noise of the world and really tune into to this powerful, intuitive voice and increase its volume. Then, you will start aligning with your true identity and can start dissolving the painful lies, labels and beliefs that have been haunting you for years. Become willing to start looking at life from a different perspective, from a higher perspective, and begin to uncover the great secrets of this universe. You have the power to do that. You are enough. You have always been enough. And you are deserving of some wonderful things in life. Start now. It’s never too late to begin.
I will leave you today with a wonderful quotation by Walt Withman:
‘Re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul; and your very flesh shall be a great poem, and have the richest fluency, not only in its words, but in the silent lines of its lips and face, and between the lashes of your eyes, and in every motion and joint of your body.’
Stay safe and well,
