Know Thy Self
Did you know your subconscious automatically manifests whatever thoughts and beliefs hold the most power in your mind? ….and taking any form of action that contradicts those limiting beliefs is the quickest, most surefire way to shift this power away from them!
Think about the following questions:
- What do you love about yourself and who you are?
- What do you struggle to accept about yourself?
- What cycles do you see repeating over and over in your life?
- What unconscious beliefs do you feel are driving this pattern?
Now, fill in the blanks:
- I wish I were more………
- I wish I were less…………
- I wish I didn’t have………
Think about how these beliefs have shown up in your life so far.
Taking its lead from memories and cycles that hold the most significant emotional charge, our subconscious mind then creates our individual experience of reality. Our emotions are, basically, the driving fuel behind that reality.
If you have been living unconsciously to a set of beliefs, i.e. not knowing who you are or what drives you, then these beliefs will be dictating your current, creative setpoint. You won’t be able to see or experience yourself any differently in life because your unconscious beliefs are running the show.
We can, however, shift our lives in an instant, when we know thy self.
Both masculine and feminine drivers reside within us – when we become aware of the hold that the unconscious has, i.e. where our current focus is, we find ourselves moving towards a greater sense of balance and a feeling of connectedness to who we really are.
Our emotions are pure gold! They operate as an amazing traffic light system, telling you immediately when you’ve slipped back into an old, unconscious pattern in life. Using your emotions, intelligently, as a representation of what messages your subconscious is receiving, helps you to pause in any given moment, and tune in to your true identity.
Your lower mood states show you’ve been triggered by an old, stored memory, now playing on a turntable in your mind and it’s not finding a way to switch off. When you view your emotions in this way, your mood can switch immediately, your perception can shift easily, and you can automatically open your mind to more possibilities to see and experience the situation you’re in. You can literally lift your energetic vibration to a higher frequency, in an instant!
Our emotional energy is doing what it’s meant to do – to flow through us, so giving us a temporary, sensory experience. It only gets stuck, and feels like it’s never going away, when we resist it or judge it. When we allow the emotional energy to simply flow through us freely, with no resistance by becoming curious about its source, it totally loses its power over us.
Please remember this, if you’re in the middle of a meltdown: our emotions exist to bring our thoughts to life so that we can have a human experience of what is running through our heads, nothing more.
You are not your emotions. They are simply a manifestation of the thoughts we are focusing on in our minds – and talking of manifestation, here’s to the power of Abracadabra and a very Happy Halloween!!
Gnothi Seauton, as quoted by the Oracle at Delphi, to know thy self, may not be easy – it requires dedicated commitment and regular practice, but it really is as simple as that.
