Greetings my friends.
When we last met we discussed changing the story we tell ourselves in order to move past the blocks which our unconscious mind creates in order to protect us.
For some that means seeking out the help and support of those with training to release or deal with.
For many however it is simply a matter of changing how we talk to ourselves and how we behave towards ourselves.
How Do We Do That?
Take a look at how you talk to yourself.
What is your inner voice saying to you?
For the majority of people the messages being given out from the inside are far from being compassionate, positive and supportive.
When was the last time you said something kind and loving to yourself? I doubt you can remember if you have ever done it at all.
When we see another person in pain and anxiety our immediate response is usually one of compassion.
We offer an hand to hold or place one on their shoulder and we speak kind gentle words to help them find their way through.
When You Are In The Same Space How Do You Respond?
Do you say something kind or instead do you say This is stupid, snap out of it.
When something doesn’t go right or you have an accident is your reaction one of balance or is it critical. Do you allow yourself the same compassion that you would another person?
On a daily basis the average person says around 10 discouraging or negative things to or about themselves. All that inner talk needs to stop in order to change the story you tell yourself.
If you are constantly critical of yourself you will never step outside of your comfort zone and take a chance at being more or following your dreams. Every critical comment you make chips away a little more of your confidence and self-esteem.
When Did It Start?
Think back through your life to all the things which have been said to you by parents, teachers, bosses, friends, competitors etc. and then see how the pattern began.
Once you see that this is not your natural state or way of being you will be more able to step away from the old way of speaking to yourself and change that story.
Time to cancel each negative affirmation and replace it with something positive.
