On Sunday I went into such a deep meditation but then awoke with a jump. As I was waking I was repeating a statement over and over in my head. I haven’t been able to forget that statement and I’d like to share it with you all – as it may hold meaning for you also.
“I let go of the story I tell myself, about me”
I began to see clearly all of the stories I constantly tell myself about me – about who I believe myself to be, what I like or don’t like, what I’m good at or not good at and so on. And then I realised that these are all limitations – and what I term ‘good’ and ‘bad’ stories are all actually just exactly the same. They all just limit me from creating, experiencing and discovering myself in that very moment. Each belief and thought that I hold about myself keeps me from truly experiencing the moment that is actually happening.
Every belief we hold drags the past into the present, and keeps us stuck to re-live life in the same way. We prevent a new way of being from appearing.
So now, whenever I catch myself saying a thought or belief about myself (usually just to me inside my own head) I take this as an opportunity to affirm my choice to the universe – the choice that I am releasing the limitation and restriction I have been placing on myself, by saying: “I let go of the story I tell myself, about me. I let go of the story I tell myself, about me.” Over and over, until I connect back in with the present moment. That statement allows me to let go of the past and let go of the future, it brings me directly into the moment, to finally be present in all it’s glory!
What stories do you tell yourself about you, that keep you comfortable or ‘safe’? What are those statements that you say about yourself that you’re now willing to let go of?
