“I have really bad balance”, “I have a really bad shoulder”, “My knees are bad”, “I have a degenerative disc”, “I can’t sleep at night”, “LA isn’t the place to meet a great guy”, “I keep meeting men who are players”, “I saw the x-rays, I have no padding left between my bones”. .. these are just a few of the stories I hear every day.
Almost everyone I know tells a story that limits them in one way or another. Telling those stories just keeps those limitations in business. If we keep on telling the same old stories, we’re going to keep on getting the same old ailments. I just read this one last night from one of my 40 year old Facebook friends, “it sucks getting old”. That is one of the biggest stories of all time!
It’s time to tell a new story, don’t you think?I was leading a hike and one of the women said her hip was bothering her, “you know, I’m getting old”. That is a story I won’t be telling myself anytime soon or ever! That story is so old and I’m not usually a good follower.
Did you know that your subconscious mind believes everything you say?
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Beware of what you want for you will get it”.
Our subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between fact or fiction, it just believes.
That’s what he meant, be careful of what you tell yourself and what you tell others. Do you want that to continue to be the case for you? If so, keep on telling it like you see it or like you feel it. We do have a choice but we need to catch ourselves telling the old stories.
Those stories are all over our lives.
How about…we tell a new story. Tell the story how you want it to be. Instead of, “I have really bad balance”, how about telling the story, “My balance is becoming more stable every day”. Or instead of saying, “this town is almost impossible to meet a great guy in, they’re all players”, how about,
“I know there are some really great guys out there, this is a really big town”.
Sure, you say, but what about those x-rays or that prognosis?
What about it?
There was a study done with people who needed to have knee surgery. If you click on the link below, you’ll see the amazing results. Even though some of the subjects were admitted, got the incision and told they had surgery, they didn’t have the surgery. Yet, all of them reported their knees felt normal and were able to do all the activities they hadn’t been able to do before the surgery.
The key is, they believed they had the surgery and that was enough!
Catch yourself and catch your limiting thoughts and beliefs and statements. Catching yourself will be the hardest part but you will be able to do it if you have any desire to create a reality that is desirable for you.
Awareness is where it begins.
You will hear yourself and want to turn it around.
Then, you’ll start to hear everybody else telling their own stories and it will get clearer and clearer why we are all so full of problems, we speak them into our world and then we keep them there by continuing to speak them.
Even though this sounds so simplistic, it is really simple!
We seem to think everything has to be so hard when in fact, our lives could flow with ease but WE have to start flowing with ease.
We have to start BEING ease. Once you begin to see that you are creating your reality by how you feel and what you say, you will pay attention to the words you choose to speak into existence.
Choose wisely and enjoy the outcome of those choices. We have what we need here inside ourselves, we’ve been given the tools we need, we just need to use them in the way we were divinely designed!
