Bottom of the barrel is where we find ourselves repeatedly when you keep doing the same thing expecting a different result. We create chaos for ourselves all the time. We don’t mean to, but that is what is happening when you are on auto-pilot or the unconscious programming that is running. Running your life, your decisions, your responses, and your choices as it is always keeping you in your comfort zone, whether you realize it or not.
1. Recognize by becoming self-aware of where you are in your life and what decisions and choices you made got you here. Or lack of decision making, did you just allow situations to transpire around you?
2. Releasing attachments to old ways of doing things, old relationships that don’t work, and patterns of behavior: not keeping track of money, not calling people out, not expecting more, and any place else in your life that you are not showing up for yourself.
3. Restore: this is restoring your relationship with yourself and the Divinity within. Making connection to your ‘gut’ or your intuition, which is the connection between you and Source (whatever that is for you).
These can be a lifetime’s worth of evolution, or it can be the process you are already in. Don’t be daunted by the work. This is the work that you are here to do. You are here to be fully present in your life, having the joy and happiness that life has to offer. However, this can be stunted by programming that has led you to believe that you are not enough, or deserving, or have any power. Whatever the programming is, it is time to end it and begin a new one.
There are two ways in which to start or continue the healing: forgiveness and gratitude.
Forgiveness is the process of letting go of the old story…not playing that program anymore. Letting the past situation or relationship be what it was and accept it with no judgment. It was an opportunity for you or the other person to evolve in some way…it may or may not of happened, so now just be with it.
Gratitude is also an opportunity to change the programming from not enough to enough or more than enough. By finding the good in all situations and relationships you are able to create more of the good in your life. Thereby, letting go of the lack or victim mentality of “not enough” that is holding you back. By finding the places and things in your life that are appreciated and beneficial, you are creating more of those opportunities for yourself. Through gratitude you are able to take responsibility for your choices and actions and modify and adjust where needed.
The magic is all around, but we have to clear our lens of old programming and trauma to begin to experience it in our own lives. Blessings, M xo
