Have you ever noticed yourself being the worst possible version of you? I have done a lot of noticing what I am noticing lately. Let me share a story with you. I had been waiting for my new eye glasses to come in. Last week the frames arrived and they were broken and had to be returned to the factory. Yesterday they called and said here they are. I had gotten a new prescription and now it was several weeks and I am really annoyed because I can’t see very well out of my old glasses. The person who had previously waited on me had given me the cost. A new gentleman rang it up and it was $200 more. Needless to say I was upset and told him so. But I could see how unfriendly, nasty I was being. I asked myself who do I want to be? If it all worked out perfectly what would that person do? Well I changed my attitude and inquired how long he had worked there and changed the energy of the experience. The manager came over and reduced the cost to the original price I was quoted.
Fast forward a few hours and I picked up the mail. I had been waiting for some checks, actual refunds from my airline travel insurance. When mom got sick and I had to change my reservations. The airline charged me additional money and I wanted to be reimbursed, isn’t that why you buy trip insurance. Well I did not get what I thought I deserved. I went into a tail spin. When I get upset, my first response is food, drown my feelings in vast quantities of food even if it healthy and good for you.
After I calmed down a few hours later. I knew there was something I needed to look at. I was so mad at myself, beating myself up for eating and my “unskilled behavior today.” Through my mindfulness practices I noticed twice today the same core message showed up. “Life is hard, you have to fight for everything, the world is not to be trusted. ” I knew I did not want these messages running my life anymore so I dug in. So I started tracing it back to some real old stories about deserving easy and effortless. (Here is part of my inner dialogue, maybe you can relate)
“I can’t believe this is happening again. I am so sick and tired of this experience. Everyone else seems to have it easy. They say they want something and it miraculously appears, happens. They are lucky. I have never been lucky. I must have done something really bad to have this repeatedly be my path.”
I have been blessed with some wonderful coaches and I stay in a container of success; study people I admire, read books, listen to positive tapes, I have a cadre of tools. This one comes from Joe Vitale, The Attractor Factor on page 127. To clear old messages and beliefs he suggests this practice:
Dear Spirit please locate the origins of the feelings and thoughts you want to release. Write them down. Take each and every level, layer and area analyze resolve it perfectly in God’s truth… Come forward in time healing every incident based upon the foundation of the first…until I am at present filled with the light and the truth, Gods’ peace and love, forgiveness of myself…With total forgiveness and unconditional love I delete the old from my DNA, release it and now let it go…I feel and fill in the blank ( I am attracting into my life calm, peace, riches that will make my life easier and allow me to expand into a greater version of myself doing work I love in the world. I am a vibrational match for easy and effortless.) I allow every …problem and inappropriate behavior based on the old feelings to quickly disappear. Thank you Spirit for coming to my aid and attain the full measure of my creation. THANK YOU.
