What are Limiting Beliefs?
Limiting beliefs are beliefs that hold us back from being the best we can be.
We are raised with family beliefs and society dictates we should have certain beliefs.
When we become adults we should question if these beliefs still hold true for us.
I know some of the beliefs I was raised with are not the beliefs I have now.
I’ll give you an example, my maternal grandmother, who I’m named after believed if people were wealthy, they were greedy and not nice people.
As an adult, I know lots of wonderful people who are wealthy and definitely not greedy, they give financially as well as their time to their communities.
That limiting belief does not fit with me anymore, so I changed it by incorporating a new belief and releasing the old belief.
If you have found some beliefs that no longer fit for you, I offer individual sessions to take you through the process of changing the limiting belief ~ negative vibrational energy to the new belief ~ positive vibrational energy. This new belief is one you can embrace to serve you for a happier, healthier and more successful life.
Let’s embrace our beliefs to be the Best we can Be!
What does happiness mean to you?
I like Robert Holden’s definition of happiness.
He says that Happiness is a gift and not just for ourselves. It’s a gift to our family; our friends; our colleagues; our acquaintances.
Happiness is good for each of us and it’s good for everyone else too.
Studies prove that happiness is more than just a pleasurable emotion. Happiness has essential properties that bring out the best in us and helps us to be genuinely friendly, loving, forgiving and kind.
I get that ~ when I experience happiness I’m in a really good mood and I want everyone I meet to be happy too. It’s kind of infectious.
When I’m happy I can’t stop smiling. Have you noticed when you smile at someone ~ even if you don’t know them ~ they will smile back?
I love watching children playing ~ that is pure happiness. Children experience happiness naturally and easily.
I have a great grandson who is pure joy as he plays. I love watching and playing with him. His smile and laugh are the definition of happiness. I can tell it’s his natural way to be.
I love this quote by John Lennon:
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
If you haven’t already ~ I encourage you to give yourself the gift of happiness.
Forgiveness is really an act of letting go:
- letting go of anger
- letting go of hatred
- letting go of bitterness
- letting go of any negative thoughts we may be carrying around
We can forgive and let go without even encountering the person we want to forgive.
However, forgiveness is a process. We can recognize that staying resentful only keeps the anger or bitterness alive. Thoughts of resentment, anger, hatred, bitterness represent slow, debilitating energies that will dis-empower you. Releasing these energies will give us more peace.
Dr. Wayne Dyer says forgiving others is essential for spiritual growth. Eventually forgiveness progresses to the heart which is spiritually liberating.
We also need to forgive ourselves, to honor what is past, to love and respect it.
Look back and say, “That’s what I needed to do, that’s the person I needed to be at that time in my life. I did that, and I’ve learned from it. Now I can move on.”
A Course In Miracles Quotes:
Notice each day whether you are choosing to live in fear or love.
Fear can keep you disconnected from the loving presence inside of you.
Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sets it free.
These are 2 very powerful thoughts:
Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
What does Abundance meant to you?
Often times we think of abundance as money or wealth.
Abundance is so much more than a healthy bank account.
Actually Abundance is a Feeling
If you FEEL abundant ~ you will be abundant.
For me I feeling abundant is many things:
When I go for my beach walk. I’m fortunate to live just a few blocks from the beach and one of my ‘happy places’ is to walk by the water and see the beautiful view of the ocean, the sky, the sand, the logs washed up on to the beach and to smell the salty sea air.
~ I feel abundant in my lovely home, reading in the morning in front of the fireplace.
~ I feel abundant when I cook a healthy meal.
~ I feel abundant when I take time for my family.
~ I have a journal that I write in each week – all the ways I felt or observed abundance. There are many instances and when I look back over my week, I’m always amazed that so many opportunities to feel abundant have shown up.
I encourage you to keep a journal of your abundant happenings each week!
