Have you ever found yourself thinking, “I thought my life would be different at this stage of my life?” If so, you are not alone. The good news is that you can change your life today!
This topic has been coming up a lot for my clients and I over the past couple of weeks. To me, this is a sign that we could all benefit from the lesson of reflection, presence, and release of old and limiting beliefs and thought patterns.
The only thing limiting you from changing the course of your life in this moment is fear. Fear is not always a ‘bad’ thing. It can motivate us and can be a sign that it is time to move out of comfortable or limiting situations. But when the fear becomes stronger than the will to move forward, it can be detrimental to our growth and expansion. So, how can you release the fears that you face in shifting your life?
Reflect on their origins.
Who taught, told, or showed you by example that life is difficult? What beliefs about love, family, happiness, career, finances did you learn from these experiences? Do you actually believe them deep down in your core? Or do you know that they are just someone else’s story you are repeating?
One of the fears in my life was a fear of money. I sat on the steps of my family home hearing my parents argue about money constantly. I learned that money was ‘bad,’ caused fights, and was a limited resource. That there was never enough, no matter how much we had.
This manifested in my life in that I could not receive gifts without feeling guilty. I felt that by me accepting a gift, I was causing more fighting because of the money spent on it. I began holding the belief that money was the root of all evil and all pain. And so, I developed a limiting thought pattern that having little or no money was better than having it because fighting and problems would ensue if I was abundant. I knew deep down that this was not true, but I lived life this way for many years. I always felt like there was never enough money.
The big shift out of this space came when I started seeing more and more examples of individuals and businesses who were abundant through living in alignment with their purpose and giving back to the the community. I saw my abundant friends organizing charity events and more businesses like TOMS “One-for-One” popping up. It was like the Universe was giving me the opportunity to release my fear of money and choose which reality I wanted to live in. And then, the light bulb went off…
You always have a choice.
At any moment in time, you can make a choice to shift your thoughts. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and begin trusting that money could flow to me easily and effortlessly. This didn’t happen overnight, but by regularly affirming that abundance is everywhere, I opened myself up to receiving it. I now trust that I always have enough and more to live life exactly the way I want. Since I shifted my beliefs and thought patterns around money, my energy now aligns with the energy of abundance. I now experience a financially abundant life of purposeful giving, helping others find and live in alignment with who they really are at their core. I am fulfilled in my spiritual work, and supported by Universe in the physical world.
The principles of my story can apply to almost any situation in life. Whether you are wanting to change jobs, leave a relationship, start a family, heal from physical pain, or release depression and anxiety, you can change your life today by starting to choose thoughts that are on the other side of your fear.
-What am I fearful of?
-What would life look like if I released this fear?
-How would my life improve if I chose to trust that no matter what happens, I knew I was supported?
You can rewrite your story at any time. I know this is true because I have lived it in my own life and seen the shift happen in the hundreds of Reiki clients and students I have served in my practice. Sometimes we need some support in facing our fears and stepping into new spaces. If you would like my one-on-one support, whether you are navigating through a difficult time emotionally, or you want to start your own abundant spiritual business, I would be honored to hold you in the light of your intentions for growth and expansion.
