So often, the first thoughts that come to mind when we learn new information that might be contrary to our immediate desires is… I don’t want THAT!
I don’t want this to happen, I don’t want to have to DO that, I don’t want it to be hard/sad/ upsetting. I DON”T WANT THAT!
Ahhhh. Bless our very human hearts. Welcome to humanity.
But, not to worry!
Can you begin to notice when your thoughts start with “don’t want”?
Can you begin to relax and breathe around “not wanting” something specific to happen?
Can you stop, breathe and feel where you feel that particular “don’t want” in your body?
Noticing the direction of these thoughts, softening around the physical sensations in the body and breathing slowly and deeply will help you move through the energy behind the “don’t wants”.
What are the “don’t want’s” anyway? Truths? No. Warnings? No. Good information? YES!
How about indicators of energy surrounding an old circumstance or situation that keeps you repeating the same old patterns that feel like this. Old, outdated, worn out, played out, exhausting, ridiculous, tired ideas born in childhood or early life (or anytime!). Picked up from our being in the situation we were in, having the experience we were having and not knowing the bad feeling was an indicator of our perspective.
Perhaps we saw something upsetting happen and instead of being of the perspective that it was a bad and unfortunate thing that I don’t have to experience, I took it as a pathway of things I would eventually have to experience.
Armed with this new knowledge, move as quickly as possible through the physical sensation of the “don’t want” and be ever so sweet and kind to yourself. Often we were told to suck it up and quit crying. This was good for helping “someone” to not feel bad, but not so great for the one stuffing down the emotion; to then have to feel over and over again through their lives until they find out how to let it go and move on.
But! LEARN you WILL and MOVE ON you SHALL!
It’s all energy and it’s all moving. We are Vibrational Beings living in a Vibrational Universe. Relax into what that truly means. Relax into allowing yourself to have the life you truly want. You can allow the life that would make you so happy and set you on fire with creativity and excitement.
What do you want?
Let the answer to this one be about the way you want to feel. Let’s stop projecting negatively into our future and shooting our own selves in the foot. Let’s think about the most productive way to get ourselves to where we want to be.
How do you want to feel?
How you want to feel is what you’re always going for. So, skip what you think you need to make you feel that way and just focus on feeling that way. Happy, healthy, joyful, abundant, prosperous, peaceful, easy, creative, excited, successful. Write these things down and think about how it feels to feel this way. Spend more time thinking about this than thinking about anything you “don’t want”.
Because when you know that what you focus only creates more of that, you’re more selective in what you focus on. And when you’ve moved through the energy of the “don’t want’s” it’s a heck of a lot easier to do that.
Here’s to feeling it all and letting it move.
I love you dearly and support you fully.
