I had a coaching call with a client last night who I’d only been working with for a couple of sessions. She is starting to see the importance and the meaning of self-discovery and how that will take her to a dream that she has had for a very long time.
Last night, she said, Imagine if everyone were living with knowing this for themselves – What an amazing and happy world we would have?!?
She, like 84% of adults, lived her life based on a “False-self”.
This false self comes from others telling you who you are, what you should do and how they believe you should behave. Don Miguel Ruez, author of the Four Agreements, calls this the Mitote. The village of inner voices that shouts inside your head every time you make decisions. Most of these developed before you were 7 years old.
Do you stand in the grocery store and begin to reach for a cake only to hear an inner voice saying “don’t eat that – your too fat—you always were the greedy one…” voices of parents, sisters, brothers, friends, teachers, television, perhaps that neighbor you only met once. The voices can also be positive but just as effective in molding our behavior. “You are the oldest… now, what do you really want to do…She’s going to be a lawyer, I just know it…of course you like blue”
The list is endless but the messages stay with us.
Do you have an inner dream or longing? Does it seem as farfetched as a Disney fairy tale? No need for a knight to recue you. It’s time for you to spring up and to let your inner seeds of brilliance bloom!
Limiting beliefs, self-sabotaging habits, and old messages have been stored in your subconscious mind since you were a very young child. It is NOW time to release those so that you can freely and easily move forward – share your unique gifts in a bigger, more satisfying way.
Another of my clients on a recent coaching call, said, “I’m there! I’m happy! I feel really good,
I’m really clear about what I want and what makes me happy. I feel clear and confident.”
Start by taking a look at unearthing the seeds of magic that have long been kept buried, waiting for you to uncover them. Do you remember what you wanted to do as a child, the personality traits you displayed? Have they changed? Are you happy with the changes? Take a few quiet moments and talk with your inner child. If you are having trouble remembering or identifying those inner seeds/dreams, I have tools to unearth them (no matter how deep).
I am moving forward by unlocking my inner dreams and growing my true brilliance.
