“It is true if you believe it to be true.”
One of the great energy healers of our time, Louise Hay hits the nail on the head about out beliefs. Our beliefs can help us, or they can hinder us. The key is to recognize which is which.
A very popular limiting belief is “things will never work out for me.” Perhaps past experiences have led you to believe this when things haven’t worked out exactly as planned. Maybe this belief has cemented itself into your being because it would be too greedy to pursue your desires. Possibly you’ve witnessed others around you experience more success than you, or people around you are in constant misery. And of course, it could always be karma or past life energy.
Let’s tackle these issues one by one.
I’ve Failed Many Times in the Past
A major issue is seeing failure as an end all be all, but this is simply not true. Each failure is truly a moment to learn and do something different next time. Sound cheesy? Maybe! But it’s true. Did you know it’s part of our human experience to learn lessons? That’s how we “level up” as my friend, Salty Spiritualist Sarah Jacobs puts it. Failure is a moment for learning to do things differently, to rise to the challenge, and grow. I won’t deny it’s disappointing when things don’t work out like we had hoped, but step back, look at the situation, and decide what can be done differently to experience what you desire next time. If we don’t learn, we make the same mistakes again and again.
I Don’t Want to Be Greedy
The definition of greed according to Google: “intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.” Sometimes people confuse greed with desire. Did you know the Universe (God, Source, etc.) desires abundance for every being? That includes you! So many of us don’t ask for things like dream jobs, soulmates, or money because fear of being greedy. So many of us don’t pursue our passions because so few around us pursue their passions, so we just pretend to be content going through the motions day after day. When we dream big and utilize our gifts, the Universe rewards us and opens the doors for things to work out as we desire. It is not greedy or selfish to desire things to work out for you whether that be in relationships, careers, finances, or fun. I promise. Ask, pray, or meditate on the things you desire and believe you are deserving.
People around Me are More Successful
Remember all our gifts are different. Just because someone is really good at something you’d like to be good at does not mean you are supposed to be good at it. Does that even make sense? YES! Don’t try to be like everyone else, rather just be you and walk your path, not someone else’s. Maybe things have not been working out for you because it is the Universe trying to steer you back to your lane. (It’s a beautiful lane!) You’ll find success when you get good at being you!
People around Me are Constantly Miserable
You know how some people just always have something to complain about? And thanks to social media, it is really easy to find people constantly complaining about anything. Sure, people want to see “realness” scrolling through profiles and posts, not facades of a “perfect” lifestyle. But there is also a point where constant bitching can affect everyone. Pretty soon we start taking on their energy and habits and start mimicking the people around us. Remember that other people’s shit shows are their shit shows, not yours. Recognize if the people and posts you expose yourself to are hurting you. Send them love and limit your exposure to them if necessary.
Karma and Past Life Energy
I always laugh when someone throws out a “karma is a bitch” to someone that’s ticked them off because we all have karma! We all have past life energy, too. It is very possible one or the other could be responsible for your belief that nothing ever works out. Often times agreements, oaths, and vows from past lives are carried forward into this life. Energy healing can work with your karma and past life energy to resolve those issues and help you move forward. Are your hindering beliefs because of karma or past life energy? Ask me!
Moving Past Hindering Beliefs
Remember what Louise said? If you believe things will never work out for you, there is a great possibility things won’t ever work out for you. On the flip side, if you believe things will always work out for you, there is a great chance they will! When it goes deeper than your belief to karma or past life energy, I encourage you to seek an energy healer to assist you. Whatever the reason, always know you are deserving of joy, wellness, and abundance, you might just need to do some work first.
Be love. Be light. Just Be.
