Welcome to module 9 of 12 in this series I'm calling Ignite your True Purpose, which is designed to help you start living the life that you're here at this time, and in this place to truly live. In this module, we're going to explore the number one practice formula to eliminate whatever it is that's holding you back on your path to living your true purpose on a daily basis.
Before we do that, though, as always, let's read from 365 Days of Richer Living (Amazon Associates link) by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker. I really like this one today. This is from February 6th.
"I am the creation of God, therefore, I have nothing to fear. There seem to be strange quirks in the human mind. It has the ability to remember so much that is not good, and to remember so little that is good. Whenever we look to the past, we almost always remember the great hurts, and fail to recall the great joys and blessings we have once experienced. Memory, in its true spiritual sense, is the capacity to remember our origin in God and the steady unfoldment of our nature through experience. It is the ability to know again that we are created by an infinite mind and prospered in all our ways by an infinite love. It reminds us of our divine destiny to overcome all evil, and to abide in all that is true and good. As we do this, all fear is removed from our thought, for there is an inner uprising of faith in ourselves and in our fellowmen. The Mind that created us sustains us, unfolds our good before us, and leads us in pleasant ways."
I love this book. Buy it for yourself!
Before we dive into exploring what is holding you back and how to eliminate it, we always want to start with gratitude. What are you grateful for relative to previous successes in eliminating things that are holding you back? No matter how much may be holding you back right now, what are you grateful for? Tap into just the graciousness that's showered upon you, and give great gratitude for that.
Also, whenever we set goals, we want to use the PURETM formula. In the PURETM formula:
P for a PERFECT WORLD, what is your aspirational goal?
U for UNLIMITED from how and when, from space and time limitations.
R is for RIGHT NOW that your goals are right now present tense, already done,
E is for EMOTIONALLY CHARGED with feelings that are how you're going to feel when the goal is already done.
Today we're going to talk about stories and emotions, and how they hold you back in life. These are generally the two forms of things that are going to hold you back:
Stories are just a form of energy. As I have said in the past modules, everything is just a form of energy. Because stories are a form of energy, we can work with that energy.
The number one story is, "I'm not good enough," or, "I'm not enough of something." "I'm not tall enough", "I'm not strong enough", or "I'm not smart enough." Whatever it is, I'm not good enough to do, be, or have the things that I'm here to do. That is the number one story for most people, or some form of that story. There are other stories, of course, but that is the biggie.
The energy of stories forms a bubble around us that blocks us from the energy of Spirit that is trying constantly to pour into our being. Most of us have a story energy bubble that is always blocking good, spiritual energy from coming in to us. In order to be healthy, we need to clear out the story energy bubble. If we don't clear out the story energy bubble, then we're blocked from good, spiritual energy, and that always leads to some form of disease. This story of, "I'm not enough," is at the root of many psychosomatic diseases and illnesses. So we want to understand and learn how to clear out these story energy bubbles.
Emotions are also a form of energy, but they're on the inside of our being. The number one form of negative emotion is fear. You may have heard fear is just an acronym for False Emotions Appearing Real, which is so true. If you have followed me for a while, you'll know that the quote on the wall behind me in videos, is from Marianne Williamson, and it's one of my favorite quotes of all time. Actually, this quote is what inspired me to start my blog and my coaching business. Let me read it to you now because it says about fear is VERY important.
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God, that is within us. It's not just in some of us. It's in all of us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
That is just such a great quote! Its' from Marianne Williamson's book, A Return to Love.
As I said earlier, emotions are a form of energy. The energy of negative emotions forms a blockage inside our bodies that is a barrier to us expressing our true self. The internal energy blockages always leads to physical disease if allowed to linger. The internal blockages of energy are associated with the seven energy centers in our body. In the Eastern world they call them chakras, but there are just energy centers in the body, and there are 7 of them.
In summary, we want to clear out anywhere we're blocked to be healthy and living our true purpose with gusto!
Here's the great news of this module: because stories and emotions are just forms of energy, like everything is energy, they can be cleared from our energy beings with a more powerful energy, through a simple clearing process. That's the crux of it all, it is that simple. And because it's so simple, most people don't do it. I'm going to teach you how, very simply, in this module, how to clear these energies from your space, so that you can have more of the light of God, flowing into your life.
In both clearing processes, we're going to talk about clearing stories around you and clearing the negative emotions inside. It's a simple process of mindfulness, followed by action. Here are the clearing steps:
Most people's challenges are that they try to fix all this stuff themself. However, you don't have any power, without the power of the Holy Spirit. So why try to keep fixing stuff yourself when you have an unlimited source of abundant energy, that's waiting, and willing to heal you, if you're willing to receive, like we talked about in the last module. You've got to be willing to receive. But the grace is there, always for you.
This module really probably deserves its own multi-module course to go through all this stuff in detail, and I'm planning on doing that in the future. But in the meantime, if you have the self discipline to apply this simple formula that I just outlined, then you're on your way to healing. Also, I'm going to go through that formula again in the meditation for this module below.
ACTION STEP WARNING: I'm going to give you a warning now. Do not be surprised as you do this, and you practice these energy clearings, that you may experience physical healings. You may experience increased physical energy. You may experience clarity of thought. And you may experience unlimited compassion and love for others. And maybe even a desire to do random acts of kindness. If you like those types of things in your life, then get going on this practice right now, and do it every day!
And I'm not kidding when I say people have not a hand full of stories. They have dozens, if not hundreds of stories and negative emotions that have compiled up over the years, and it's going to take some time to get in touch with all these stories and negative emotions, because like I said, they may be buried in your subconscious. First you've got to get in touch with them, then you've got to tune into them, tune into the Spirit, and clear that from your space.
So, let's go through this process in the mediation today. I want you to be able to come back to it and use this meditation, over, and over, and over again.
Close your eye, take a deep breath, and just relax. Sit down: make sure you're sitting down in a chair, and that you have a straight back. Tune into your body. And tune into your breath. And let the concerns of the day drift aside for now. Focus on your breath and my voice.
Let's start with stories. Scan the space around your body, for a story that doesn't serve you. Some story that you're not good enough in some way. Remember I said, this is an energetic bubble around you. I want you to sense the energy, get in touch with this story, and name it. "I'm not good enough for X." Whatever the story is.
Sense the energetic size of this story. What I mean by that is, literally size. Is it as big as the room that you're in? Is it as big as the building you're in? Is it as big as the country or the state that you're in? Is it bigger than the world? It doesn't matter how big this story is energetically, there's always an edge. Why is there always an edge? Because, what's outside this bubble is the Light of God, so your story cannot be infinite, because otherwise, it would take up all the space, and there would be nothing else. So there's always an edge to your stories.
Find the energetic edge. And then sense, what is beyond the edge of your story? Sense it with all your senses. Some people, they can smell freshness, beyond the edge of the story. Some people sense light, very strong light. Get in touch with what's beyond the edge of the story, because this is the energy of your higher power. It is the energy of the Holy Spirit.
Then allow the energy of your higher power to enter into your story bubble. What you will sense as you allow the higher power energy in, is that your bubble, whatever form it is, whether it's thick and soupy, or gray and misty, whatever you sense it is, will begin, as you allow the energy of the Spirit in, to shrink, to dissipate, to dissolve, and to wash away the darkness of this story bubble.
Stick with it. Continue to allow higher power energy into your story bubble until it completely eliminates it from your beingness. That's it. And as you watch that story bubble fade away into nothingness, know that you are now free from this story, and you can move on to clearing the next one.
Let's now scan your body for a negative emotion that is not serving you. Where do you feel blocked in your body? Maybe that you're not thinking clearly, maybe you can't speak your truth, or you're not feeling love in your heart. Or maybe your gut just feels like it's unsure. Maybe you don't feel secure.
You're just going to scan from above your head, down to the bottom of your spine. Feel where you might be blocked today. What are you sensing today? Right now. Where is that blockage located?
With your mind's eye, I want you to dive into that area, where you're feeling blocked. Dive in there. What do you sense inside this blockage? Stick with it. Sometimes these blockages can be rather dark, but keep going into them, deeply. What do you sense in the center of this blockage?
At the core of all of us, is the light of our essence, the light of the Spirit. Sense that inside this blockage. It might just start off as a pinpoint of light. Get in touch with it. Allow that light, even if it's a tiny pinpoint inside this blockage, to expand, to fill the blockage with light, and dissolve it. Break it away from your body. Allow the higher power energy to expand beyond the blockage, beyond your body, as big as you'd like it to be. Allow that Light of the Spirit to come out. And as you feel that blockage get blown away by the Spirit, know that you're now free from this negative emotion.
Remember what you've learned in this mediation. When we're done here, write it down and take action. Now come back to your body. Sense your breath. Come back to the present moment. When you're ready, open your eyes.
I trust this meditation was insightful and healing. Come back as many times as you like, to clear out the stories and negative emotions that are not serving you. And we'll see you in the next module.
