“The fears we don’t face become our limits. Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”
Breaking through limitations requires tending to yourself with patients, love, lots of self-nurturing like healthy foods, rest, and focused based input. Self-maintenance in these areas will help you get to the bottom of the things you need to change to go to your next level.
The passage of working through old programming is full of shadow elements like self-doubt, frustration, resentment, anger, even rage. What got you to where you are will not get you to where you want to go. Clearing up old programming requires a conscious and purposeful revisiting of past entanglements – facing your fears, accepting what is. “Accepting what is” gives you a choice to change. When you truly accept what you chose, what you did, many times, you will no longer need it because it is learned. It’s then time to forgive, come out of fear and resistance, and get back to love, joy, and personal power.
Whenever you find yourself in a provocative situation where you realize you’re triggered from any past survival fear, seize the moment! Take a few deep breaths and breath out of your ego-brain down into the truth of your heart-brain. Think from your heart. Speak from your heart. The heart is where you can let go of defending, needing to be right, and instead make a heart connection with others. When you listen from your heart when you speak from your heart, problems can be resolved quicker; solutions can be found faster because you are no longer isolated. Resisting, defending, and needing to be right all consume a lot of energy, because trying to force something is going against the flow of energy, like trying to swim upstream or against the current. Going with the flow allows you to see what’s coming more easily, and small efforts can change the direction of things in significant ways.
What is the last situation you remember being provoked or triggered?
What occurs when you apply the breathing technique above while remembering that situation?
