For the past week I have been asking myself this question a lot.
You see, I want something really badly in my life. I’ve been spinning the wheels in my mind over and over and over again trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong, or not doing or need to be doing more of. (Get the picture of the frenzy I’ve created?)
When I woke up Sunday morning it was like the fog had lifted from my brain.
I wrote last about my amazing new home. I even shared a couple of pictures, small ones because I had told myself that my home wasn’t “as good” as my last place, so I couldn’t show everyone my whole home.
Seriously? Why on earth would I do that? What would motivate me to not share my joy? Isn’t it fun to be around people when they’re joyous? It’s infectious and can lift your spirits, at least it does for me.
How often do you stop yourself from sharing something with a friend? Or, stop trying something you’ve secretly been wanting to learn. How often do you find yourself seeking the approval of others for something you’ve done, or even just to be noticed? Do you ever stop and ask yourself why? What’s the story you tell yourself?
Lots of questions today. I’m on fire and the sun is shining.
I want to speak to your imagination and to your desires. I know they’re in there. Where in your life are you holding back because you’ve been told that’s not for you? Where in your life do you go beyond the beyond in hopes of being seen and recognized for your brilliance?
Want to connect to answer any of these questions? I would love to speak with you.
As I let go of the lie that I am defined by the home I live in, or that it even matters to who I am, I’m seeing other boxes I’ve placed myself in. The box that I need to write the profound blog post, or the perfect Facebook post, then I’ll get noticed and liked.
I was abandoned not once but twice in my life and so the story I told(tell) myself is all I want is to be loved. AND, I have to be extra everything in order to be loved. Do you see the belief? Can you picture how exhausting it has been to try to ‘fit in.’ To do the right thing in order to belong. There’s a catch here and it’s a doozy. It even caught me by surprise.
I’ve spent much of my adult life abandoning myself because of what I believed. I realize I spoke about this last week, but it’s so huge that I believe I need to share it again.
I’m re-reading Don Miguel Ruiz’s book The Four Agreements. On page 13 he writes, “Ninety-five percent of the beliefs we have stored in our minds are nothing but lies, and we suffer because we believe all these lies. OMG!!! He goes on to say “To be alive is the biggest fear humans have…. our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive – the risk to be alive and to express what we really are. Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans. We have learned to live our lives trying to satisfy other people’s demands. We have learned to live by other people’s points of view because of the fear of not being accepted and not being good enough for someone else.
I’m tired of living my life in the boxes I’ve built around me. As I continue to discover them and unpack myself, I’m experiencing freedom at a whole new level.
I want to share that freedom with you. So much so I’m discounting my 3 month program by over 50%.
GET OUT OF THE BOX YOU’RE LIVING IN
Here is what I offer you.
A safe place to pause and rest for a while.
1 – 2 hour introduction session
7 – 1 hour sessions
1 – 1.5 hour completion and celebration session
A Journal to record what your discovering
Email access to me in between our sessions
In our first month, we’ll explore your beliefs, examine their truth and challenge anything that makes you feel less than whole.
In our second month, we’re going to tackle those incessant negative voices in your head that never seem to stop. We’ll learn where they come from. We’ll discover whose voices they are? Yes, that’s right, they’re not yours!
In our third month, we’re going to explore what you’re truly longing for. We’ll connect to the Author that lives within you, that’s just bursting to break free. And, let’s be real, it’s not going to be all sunshine and lollipops. We’ll learn what the true meaning of failure is and how to recover from the bumps along the way.
Because this year is all about breaking free from the boxes that keep you stuck, I have created space for 6 women. AND, what’s even more amazing is I’m discounting the whole package by over 50%.
If this speaks to you, and you’re one of the 6 lucky women, you’ll only pay $997.00 for everything.
Let this be your year to break free! I can’t wait to meet you.
