What’s Holding You Back?
Unconditional love is the most important lesson. We all come from a place of love, every single one of us. Even if you came into this world and you were an accident, a product of rape or whatever your sad story is about your birth, we all still came from a place of love because life creation is all about love.
We were sent here to live in love, and to experience love. Along the way we get lost and we learn fear. We learn fear at a very early age. We learn fear in our infancy stage, when we’re crawling on the floor and we grab on to the cabinet and somebody screams at us, “No, don’t grab that.” Or we’re climbing up the stairs and we get yelled at, “No, you can’t climb up the stairs.” We get this fear that’s instilled in us at a very young age.
Then those fears grow as we grow and those fears become larger. But in any given situation, you have a choice of fear or of love. You get to decide whether you want to live in a state of fear or in a state of love. I promise you that if you choose love over fear, it’s going to be the best life that you can make it.
I can guarantee you if you have anxiety, depression, if you are on medication, I get what you’re going through. I used to be the same way. I used to rely on all those things until I read a book called “The Monster is Real.” It talked about how fear is a separation from spirituality, which was very true for me because I didn’t grow up with spirituality. I didn’t grow up with religion, so I had this major disconnect. I didn’t have anything to turn to.
At any time you can change that. Right now you can decide you want to be a spiritual person. You can say to yourself, “I’m going to wake up tomorrow morning and I’m going to be the best person that I can be. I’m going to live from a place of love. I am not going to let fear take over my life anymore. I am safe. I am okay. I am protected. I am safe. I am okay. I am protected.”
That is the mantra you have to live in order to not be in fear. When you feel that panic start to rise, when you feel those emotions starting to set in, breathe. Close your eyes. Center yourself. I am safe. I am okay. I’m protected. I am safe. I am okay. I am protected. It takes your heart rate and it brings it down. That’s why it’s important for self-care.
Self-care is self-love. When we work 24/7 and we’re stressed about money, we’re not taking care of ourselves. But when we can go to an acupuncture treatment once a week, we can focus and allow ourselves to settle down. Even giving yourself a mani-pedi, or going for a walk, run, meditation, it all helps and it doesn’t require money.
If you love yourself and you think that you’re worth it and by the way, you are! You are always going to come back to that place of love. If you’re living in that state of love, everything will unfold the way that it’s supposed to. But if you’re living in fear and you’re living in the unknown, you’re going to keep manifesting that stuff. You’re going to manifest your worst fears. If you’re living in fear, you’re going to create more fear. If you’re living in love, you’re going to create more love.
