We are having a blast in my Class/Facebook group about attracting miracles with the Law of Attraction! The juicy part is the sharing that goes on, the transparency from people who really really really want to manifest their miracle!
They totally get that unless they bring their big limiting beliefs, ego machinations, and shadow resistance to the table to be acknowledged, seen, understood and transformed, their miracle sort of doesn’t stand a chance.
One fabulous and amazing woman brought this to the group today for us to shine light on it and help her shift it. She said (and I am quoting anonymously with permission.)
“My limiting belief is a question: “Am I ever going to be able to free myself from my current suffocating situation before I’m too old to enjoy my freedom?” As I’m attempting to pursue all the things I feel I need to plan a peaceful, fun, fulfilling retirement, additional responsibilities are being imposed upon me taking away some of the little Me time I do have. I know I’m being taken advantage of. I’ve addressed this issue but nothing changes.”
My initial reply to her was: “If addressing the issue means that you have communicated your needs and wants to others and expect them to change…Good luck with that. I don’t mean to be a cynic but you’re the one responsible for the trajectory of your life from here on out! People-pleasing can get in the way of making choices that are difficult for others to swallow, but your perspective on the fact that you are of a certain age and that you don’t have the next zillion years waiting for life to unfold is very potent! Perhaps ask yourself ‘What would I do if I weren’t afraid of the disapproval or resentment or anger of others’.”
She and I discussed this more outside of the group for personal reasons and she explained to me why she was making her current choices. And she described the circumstances that were really squeezing her. And…her bottom line, as she articulated it: “I can’t make myself be self-centered enough to do this. I’m not waiting for (anyone) to change. I’m waiting for the situation to change somehow…”
Do you feel the sadness inherent in this disempowered life stance she’s taking to position herself to take care of the needs others until things change? And at the same time, this is not a hopeless situation, nor is she a disempowered woman. Far from it, she is amazing and creative and hopeful and powerful…and moving forward and higher in her own way.
So my next response to her was this and this, precisely is where the work lies for her: “Well then we need to look at how you can ratchet step-by-step-by-step toward change systematically, subtly, consistently. At the moment you feel like you have two conflicting needs but perhaps they can be melded into one that is MORE ABOUT alignment with your integrity and your personal values. Remember it’s all about how you FEEL about what’s happening right now and how you FEEL about the ALREADY QUANTUM REALITY of the Miracle you are aiming for.”
I am blogging about this this because it is a perfect example of how can derail ourselves from manifesting a miracle. A perfectly good, doable miracle. We back off to a certain extent from our own power and we create more limiting beliefs about ourself and others and life, and thus we masterfully create our own self-imposed, imaginary Personal Glass Ceiling. And then we suffer with frustration, disappointment, resentment, and if it goes on long enough, all of that turns to bitterness… as it turns out, unnecessarily.
In my class group we work with powerful tools to transform limiting beliefs that hold us back, we shift energy like mad with Law of Attraction tools and processes, and we dig deep into how Ego and Shadow affect our ability to manifest what we desire into life.
I so appreciate the honest sharing from this dear one, and others like her, so that we can see our own stumbling blocks, notice how we are putting a stick in our bicycle spokes, find ways to shift out of that… while finding our JOY, and move closer and closer to our Miracle…which lies on the other side of our Glass Ceiling.
Thank you for being here, and for reading this. I would love for you to Comment below.
As always I hope you SPARKLE!!
