IF I WERE TO GIVE YOU THE
MOST VALUABLE GIFT OF LOVE IT WOULD BE
A SIMPLE WORD
In the beginning there was the word….
What does that really mean?
In actuality it’s one of the simplest things with the greatest impact!
The words we speak to ourselves that is. More here.
Have you noticed how our inner words can be our ULTIMATE LOVE, or our WORST BETRAYAL?
Yet it seems so complicated and mysterious to speak out loud about what goes on in the inside conversations of our mind. Maybe a little too personal even.
Let’s keep it simple!
One of the words I am aligning with is SIMPLICITY! So I have developed a statement to invoke a commitment to cutting out the drama, the blah blah, the overthinking, and the delay tactics:
“WHAT WILL I DO TO CREATE POSITIVE IMPACT SIMPLY?”
The most impactful in the game of living is the cultivation of an ULTIMATE INNER LOVE which leads to an exhilarated quality of life.
I describe Ultimate Inner Love as the sensation of an inner hummmmmm. It’s like a comforting subtle vibrating sensation in the chest with feet solid on the ground.
A feeling of being in charge, powerful, very comfortable in your own skin, speaking your truth with grace, and a greater capacity for empathy/compassion for self and others.
The first part of this game is AWARENESS.
You start by noticing more and more when you are spinning around in your ocean of habitual thoughts. Even when they seem like the absolute truth, YET they get you nowhere near exhilaration. This is a disconnection from you inner love.
Marisa Peer (mentor to A-list top performers) has gone so far as to declare how we disconnect from our inner love as a major epidemic, even the world’s greatest pelage against humanity. Full teaching here.
The effects show up in every relationship in our lives from food, to people, our work, our money our community, our aspirations.
Those challenging relationships are manifestations/symptoms of feeling a sense of lack in one form or another with thoughts like…
“THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ________”
“I AM DIFFERENT SO I CAN’T _______”
“WHAT I WANT IS NOT AVAILABLE TO ME”
The symptoms can seem sophisticated and very factually true. But don’t be fooled. At the root is the misbelief (in some form or another) of “I AM NOT ENOUGH”.
IT’S HOW WE ARE WIRED, FOR PROTECTION.
I am not talking about being broken here. I am talking to you about being human. This is what the human brain does because it wants to protect us.
So why not put this mind/brain process to constructive use simply? Best teaching on this here. (worth the visit)
SAY BETTER THINGS TO YOURSELF FOR BETTER RESULTS.
It’s not complicated. If we are having positive productive conversations with ourselves then our inner muscle is building new mental pathways to follow our choices vs our habits.
OK, SO WHAT DO YOU SAY TO YOURSELF TO BUILD THIS INNER MUSCLE?
When you notice a habitual unproductive thought try replacing it with a short phrase/mantra.
Keep the phrases simple and short.
Here are some known to be effective:
“I CAN, I WILL, I AM” (explained here at 40 min. in)
“I AM ENOUGH” or
“THERE IS ENOUGH” or
“I AM WORTHY OF WHAT I WANT”
“I AM A GOOD GIRL/BOY”
There is no explanation needed when using these mantras/phrases. You want to get out of the analytical thinking when you are in a habitual pattern so kindly interject with a simple forward moving word or phrase.
It’s a practice, which means you do it over and over like a focused meditation you can do anywhere any time. Repeat your mantras over and over whenever you notice you are spinning off into unproductive thoughts.
The repetition will sooth the nervous system and create a pleasurable experience so you will want to return to them as your safe place, and your point of inner power. Build that muscle!
My hope is you accept this gift of love and bring into the most valuable relationship you can cultivate, with yourself.
What will be your mantra(s)? Are you willing to engage in the practice? How much is your inner hum worth to you?
ps: If you would like to talk more about it; let’s connect.
If you have done your inner work you may not feel much of a disconnection, but you likely know people who display the symptoms, so share this gift of love with them.
