I don't feel good enough - time to uncover your story with this simple yet powerful exercise...
So let's explore more about your current story when it comes to your sense of self worth and deservingness and I've got an exercise for you to try if it feels good for you to do so - not because we want to beat the drum of what's happened in the past. I'm not one for going back over the past in great detail since I think it's far more important that we work on our present moment and create a different past for our future if needed....
Not feeling good enough?
How do we feel more worthy - because sometimes a high sense of self worth can feel elusive like its never quite within our reach?
But its actually so close that we can't reach out and touch it - because its within us and we have just forgotten it is there.In this episode we look at where you perceive your sense of self worth comes from vs where it actually should come from so that you can become more aware and start to make that shift.
Are you feeling worthy of everything that is in your life? Do you think you deserve everything that is in your life or do you feel you deserve even more that is in your life currently?
As we know, everything is energy - love, money, other abundance, careers family, home, our day to day world and everything you have in your life right now is underpinned by your sense of worthiness. Yes, your sense of self worth determines what you will allow yourself to experience in your world, your reality.
I get to do all this - what do you get to do everyday?
Lately I have been feeling a little grumpy and frustrated and I didn't want my energy going down that rabbit hole of 'everything is going wrong', things just aren't working out for me - this awareness is just one of the bonuses of being an alignment coach...
So I have revived my daily practice of keeping my 'get to do list'.
Change your story, change your life - starting with awareness.
I wanted to cover a subject close to my heart because this really is at the centre of all manifesting - both wanted and unwanted and that is 'our story'. We tend to do things, say things on a day to day basis that are keeping us stuck.
A bit like a re-run of an old movie that just keeps playing the same script over and over again. And when we play the same script over and over again, we get the same results over and over again. So we start our days knowing exactly what is going to happen. We do the same old things, talk to the same old people, moan about the same old stuff. Yes, our lives can end up a bit like groundhog day!
So we are continuing with our theme of creating our year instead of traditional goal setting so grab your journal and ponder the question for this session to add to your blueprint for the year ahead.
What do you want to do more of this year?
So think back over the past year and consider the parts of the year that you particularly enjoyed. This can be something that you did regularly or it can be a one off event that you really enjoyed and makes you smile or feel joyful whenever you think about it.
Is this something that you want to include more of in your life?
So over the past few sessions we have been adding layers of ideas and questions to help you make this a great year without the traditional goal setting and here is another question for you to help create that blueprint even further.
What passions do you want to spend time on this year?
And let's face it, it you are anything like me, your life is pretty full in one way or another - organising family life, running a home, your career or whatever else it maybe for you.
But are you taking any time for yourself to do what you are passionate about?
Do you even know what you are passionate about right now?
I hope you enjoyed creating your theme for the year and making that list of the person that you want to be for the coming year and beyond! In this episode I have another question for you to help you create a great year and that is: What do you want to be known for this year?
So to do this, you need to imagine for a moment that you are at the end of the year looking back over what you have achieved this year. And you can either do this as a journal entry or you can imagine that you are having a discussion with someone you are close with - or even your higher self. Whatever feels good to you...
So in the last episode we talked about creating a theme for the year and I shared what my theme was for 2020 and also what I chose for the last couple of years. Doing this really creates a foundation that gives you focus for the year so if you haven't listened to that episode - number 50. Then please do go back to that one later.
What is your theme for the year? So in the last episode I talked about how we need to let ourselves off the hook when we are not feeling inspired about setting goals for the year. So in the next few sessions I will be giving you ideas on how you can create your year without the traditional goal setting or you can use these ideas as the base of your goal setting when you feel ready.
So do you feel like you can truly be yourself? It was something that someone said to me yesterday that really got me thinking about this. So when you are around your family, friends or work colleagues are you who you really want to be or are you being who you think others want you to be. It is easy to take on other peoples energy and start to just be like the people you are with at the time.
Some time ago when I discovered the 5-Step Manifestation process which I have used for some time now. It has been a great tool for helping me to push forward in so many areas of my life - one of them being this podcast...But it also highlighted how unclear I was about hat I actually wanted. I'd sit down with one of the audios and I would go blank?
Wow, what did I actually want in each of the areas of my life. And it made me realise that if I don't actually know what I want - how is the universe, source energy or whatever higher power there is within me - going to create what I want in my life?
A few weeks ago I changed my 'to do' list to a 'get to do' list. I did this because I found myself getting overwhelmed and frustrated with my long list of to dos and decided to see how it felt to re-frame this. My 'get to do' list helps me to be more appreciative of all the things I have in my life, all the freedom that I experience in so many areas and how much I have access to in my life. Try this and see how your attitude changes when you appreciate that you get to do all those things when so many people in this world just aren't as lucky as you.
So lets talk more about this concept of BE-DO-HAVE because this makes a huge difference in so many areas of our life. Most of us do this back to front. We think that when I HAVE a certain thing, then I will DO this and then I will BE happy or whatever.But this just isn't how it works. We must BE the energy of what we want before we can HAVE it. So we need to BE that energy state and DO what someone who has that thing has already, and then we will HAVE what we want because we are aligned to it. This stops you holding everything apart from you in this future state. We will continue to explore this in some future episodes with more real examples that can help you.
