Is the past holding you back? How to chisel away your layers to a life of happiness, freedom, and abundance
Why is it that most of us know what we want out of life but we don’t actually do it? We say we want a happy, fulfilled, abundant life, but feel there is always something in the way. Everywhere we go there is an obstacle to overcome, a reason why we can’t create the fulfilled life we desire.
We spend time looking in the wrong places, and the worst part is that we can’t seem to figure it out in most areas, getting discouraged and ultimately settling for something far less than we bargained for.
Happiness, contentment, and freedom are an inside job.
Until we take the time to chisel away and question the layers of beliefs that are dominating us and driving us to make the decisions we make, nothing will ever change.
We have unconscious beliefs that are driving our relationships, career choices, worthiness, and success with other people. By design, we are raised to perpetuate the wishes and desires of those who took care of us. In order to survive and receive food and shelter, it was best to please them and therefore align with their belief systems and ways of thinking.
This created our entire universe! Then when we grow up, we realized that not everyone thinks as we do, or has the same way of being.
We add more layers to these beliefs in order to fit in, please others, and survive. Over time we end up covered in layers of plaster, not knowing why things aren’t aligning with the true desires that keep whispering to us from within.
The genius sculptor Michelangelo was able to see the perfection within a block of marble. In order to create the sculpture of David, one of the master’s most famous pieces, it is said that Michelangelo worked day and night chiseling this shapeless stone into a work of art. He chiseled shapelessness in order to reveal the beauty that lay within.
You are like David. You have heaped layers of beliefs, like thick stone, onto yourself, in order to fit in and please others to the point where you are unrecognizable.
But it is in the UNDOING, in finding what is underneath, where the answers you seek are revealed.
Hidden below is Your Essence, your internal guidance system that has always been there waiting. It is that voice in the quiet telling you deep down that what you know is right. It is your intuition, that feeling that you ARE settling for a life that is less than you bargained for.
It’s time to chisel away at your layers.
The process of introspection and inquiry may not be easy, but it is the biggest contribution you will ever make to your life, to yourself, your relationships, and anyone who comes into contact with you. You have been sleepwalking for much of your life and your awakening will change everything.
The only way to remove these layers, these obstacles, is to look at them head on. To uncover WHO YOU ARE, belief by belief.
Remember, beliefs are thoughts that you subconsciously agreed to. They are past due and up for renewal.
As my beloved says, “The past holds no power over you when you choose not to let it.” It’s time to break through the barriers that have been holding you back from the life you have always dreamed of, in order to LIVE the life you came here for. There are very few people who take the time to work on themselves and try to understand the reason WHY they REACT to life.
It is not for the faint of heart, but the rewards are worth it. Imagine when these layers are removed. Then you become free. You can now start to decide how to think and how to feel. You are EMPOWERED with the ability to move forward the way you always thought and felt was true for you.
You move from reacting TO life into acting WITH life. This is what the world has been waiting for! You in all your glory!!
Start chiseling away today to reveal the masterpiece that has always been there.
Remember, this kind of art takes time, patience and due diligence. But with a good set of tools and a kind heart, you will get there.
Are YOU Ready?
As you take each step I will be there reminding you of your Magnificence, and I will continue to do so, until you are able to see it in yourself.
