Do you believe it's possible?Feb 22, 2021
Video Blog Summary: Do you believe it’s possible?
Spring is less than a month away, and in my tradition, spring on the Medicine Wheel is a time of new beginnings. So this time of year is a natural time to consider what you would like to create in your life.
And as you come up with something you would like to create, it’s effective to look at what you believe about having that thing in your life. We often have limiting beliefs that undermine us creating the thing we would like to have in our lives.
So two questions become relevant. First, “Do you really believe the thing you want is possible?” For example, if you want a loving relationship with someone who is emotionally available and having the qualities you are looking for, do you really believe that someone like that would like to be with you?
Or for a different example, say you want to provide the healing work you are drawn to do as a business, do you really believe the people you want to work with will pay you their hard-earned money to work with you.
And if you do not fully believe in the viability of these things happening, a second question follows, “Do you tend to do something to compensate for the fact that you don’t believe it will naturally happen.
Continuing with our relationship example, if we don’t believe the person we seek in a relationship will want to be with us, we may compensate by pushing too hard, going too fast, coming on too strong, or otherwise forcing the relationship to happen.
Or, we might error on the other side by being passive and dragging our feet to engage in the relationship due to not wanting to be hurt by the possibility that they will not want to be with us.
And, if we do not believe people will value our healing services, we might not charge enough for our services or otherwise undervalue the work we do.
Fortunately, when you bring awareness to your limiting belief and the way you compensate for it, you increase your chances to steer clear of these things.
Then you can let it happen and give it a fighting chance. It tends to feel vulnerable when you cease to compensate for it. It often feels that if you do not do something to make it happen, it will not happen. So it requires patience and trust.
