Still working on self honesty and self-compassion..
And have realised that if I am to make any lasting changes..
I have to distill everything and arrive at a limiting belief and focus on just making peace with that limiting belief and changing it peacefully..
Instead of attacking it.. and thus myself..
I read somewhere that we keep talling about releasing anger, fear, sorrow etc..
But that might not be that effective as that still comes from a place where these emotions are separate from our self or spirit..
Rather than actually part of it
I know my animals feel anger, sorry, guilt etc..
They don’t separate themselves from it. They feel it intensely and then.. let it go.
That emotion is for the moment and then its gone.
The animal will probably take away a lesson from that, like ‘stealing a human’s breakfast isn’t the smartest thing to do…’ or ‘I guess I should stay away from the horses else I will get kicked by them’ or ‘test strength of branch before jumping onto it’.. that kind of thing..
They literally create a line of programming and act on it.
No ego involved, no mess involved. And they are free to get right back into feeling happy and playful.
So yes.. that is a good indication that these emotions are part of us.. and we need to accept and acknowledge them.
They should not be a cause of shame.
I am reading Brene Brown’s book called Daring Greatly.
Where she draws a distinction between guilt and shame.
And shows how shame can be paralysing, debilitating and prevent us from being what we want to be.
And I have been listening to my shame talk..
What we think should motivate us.. using shame as a whip to our quarters to move faster and further..
Is leaving us scarred and scared.
So am working with that..
This week’s and possibly month’s limiting belief is about the world being out to get me.. or “nothing ever goes my way because that person.. let me down/is unethical/ can’t be trusted…” yada yada
A huge cause of separation between myself and the Universe. One that my ego uses to justify shutting the world out.. to explode in rage.. to make itself ‘better than’ someone or something else.
Wish me luck.. this one is a big one to make peace with..
But when I do.. it will bring more peace to me. 🙂
