The more you travel down the spiritual path, the more you realise how little of you is physical, as in contained within your body and how much more there is to you in the non physical aspect. You begin to see yourself essentially as an energy being. You start to comprehend how much you underestimate yourself when you identify out of the stories you tell yourself about who you are and what your life is all about. The mind is meant to be a tool that we employ yet it has morphed into a voice that is constantly commentating on our life as we are living it. From the actions we take to the people we meet, this voice provides judgement and drama at every point. It tells us whether we did well or not, the people in our lives are good for us or not, we are safe or not, our life is successful or not, et cetera. So incessant is its chatter that we begin to believe not only that it must be true but that this voice is, in fact, us. The more often we think a thought like ‘I can’t do this’, the more likely it is to become a life long belief of ‘I’m not capable’. The more we are serenaded with ‘ No one loves you’, the stronger the belief ‘I’m not worthy’ becomes. So on and so forth.
Thought leaders in spirituality often speak of the four core life beliefs:
I am loving and lovable
I am worthy
I am safe and trusting
I am whole/ fulfilled
If these fundamental beliefs have not been met or nurtured or if they have been compromised in childhood it is difficult to find fulfilment as adults. Let’s look for a moment at what happens to our energy level if we fully believe that we are loving and lovable. We feel supported, easy, open, loving. We are more likely to believe in positive outcomes in life. As we hold ourself in alignment with the belief ‘I am worthy’, our energy level rises. We feel capable of manifesting our goals and also of enjoying the blessings that life brings our way. When we feel safe and we trust, the world becomes a friendly place where we find joy at every turn. In believing that we are whole and already fulfilled, we lose our need for other people to complete us and for external validation to elevate us. We meet life from our most grounded and powerful self.
Our beliefs are solely responsible for the experiences we create for ourself. Isn’t it time we separate ourself from the narrative in our head and base our choices on the knowledge of our true nature so that we may claim the ultimate gift, a life well loved and lived?
