It’s time to stop holding myself back. It’s time to stop waiting for something to change and instead, make the changes I want to see for myself. It’s time to stop giving my power away.
It’s time to stop listening to the voice of fear that resides in my heart chakra as a dark purple bruise. This voice throbs painfully and chokes me up whenever it tells me that I’m never going to get my shit together or that I’m not worthy of authentic, lasting Love. This judgmental voice pops up out of nowhere and declares, ‘You look old,’ when I gaze into the mirror, or ‘You’re too out of shape to wear that bikini,’ or ‘You aren’t a very good Mom,’ or ‘You can’t afford to go back to school and aren’t smart enough to do it anyway.’ It’s the disgusted voice that buzzes in my ear, ‘Just stop trying.’
This voice isn’t loud; it speaks to me in whispers, but it demands to be heard. It manifests itself as hesitation, anger, sadness, irritation, apathy, lethargy and insecurity.
I’m sick and tired of the voice. I don’t want to listen to it anymore. This voice is simply the culmination of past hurts and disappointments, trying to protect me from taking any risks by bullying me and keeping me locked in an uncomfortable little box of beliefs that no longer serve me, and maybe never did to begin with.
I am worthy. I am a beautiful person. I am smart and I have the ability to be successful, strong and confident. My meditation this week includes a visualization of shedding this old skin of self-limiting beliefs. As I shed this skin, what bursts forth is bright, warm, loving Light. A new way of thinking.
Everything I want to be I already am, and I will continue telling myself this Truth until I finally believe it. Until I begin to live it.
What’s holding you back? Today I invite you to explore whether the ‘voice’ that resides within you is telling you the Truth or a big heap of self-limiting lies.
