And it's really simple, but I'm scared to death...
I think soon it might barge right through that door and bowl me over if I don't let it in and work with it.
In order to fix any small and pesky problems swarming around me like hungry mosquitoes, in order to fix the big daddy challenges of my life, in order to open up and receive the flow of this amazing abundance that is rightfully mine, I need to clean myself up from the inside out... not from the outside in.
It's been said so many different ways. But I say it's time to get to the root of the problem. If we want to clean up our lives on all fronts,from the most trivial of trivial to the big daddy issues, we just need to go inward. We can grasp to fix our issues by working from the outside in, but we're not really getting to the core of it. We're just grappling and tinkering on the little brick of "the house" not the foundation. We're just putting a band-aid over the "boo boo" and then another band-aid on another "boo boo" until we've got a heck of a lot of band-aids on our life.
Of course working out our issues from the inside out is easier said than done. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's going to be the scariest yet most rewarding thing I've done for myself, ever.
I believe in the Law of Attraction... Like attracts like. What we put out into the universe we get back. So if we're thinking negatively about our jobs, our children, our husbands, our weight, our lack of money, etc. we're likely going to get what we're focusing on. And it ain't gonna be pretty if we're thinking negative thoughts. So I'm taking the law of attraction a step further and thinking that it really makes perfect sense that we must work on our CORE issues FIRST because if we are centered in our spirit... our true essence... If we are balanced in our heart... if we are at peace WAY down deep within ourselves, then doesn't it make sense that the rest of life's challenges and little "mosquitoes" would seem effortlessly attended to? Doesn't it make sense that when we fix the deep-down-gut-wrenching issue(s) in our lives that we haven't really ever addressed,(and you know what they are in your own life) then the law of attraction is somehow sensing this and unfortunately vibrationally matching more of that same stuff that we DON'T want to us?
I am finding this the more I work on myself. For instance, I'm wondering why my art business isn't moving along as fast as I'd like, and I'm worried about lack of money, and am I doing enough for my friends and family, and why can't I find a chunk of time for myself. And why do i feel overwhelmed and that there's not enough time... and what about my pesky neighbor... Our fears and swarming mosquitoes are often plenty.
So here's my big revelation... there's one big fat elephant in my room that I haven't totally addressed and that is my children's food allergies. It's my biggest challenge, and it never ends, and I try to get a handle on it, and then I DO have a handle on it, but then emotions come creeping up and oozing out slowly in toxic thoughts and fears. And I know that those fears and toxic thoughts breed and draw to them "like" fears and actual experiences in my life. I really believe that once I deal with my raw emotions and work with myself on this, that a lot of other UNRELATED aspects of my life will magically and flawlessly change direction for good. I truly believe that if I work on my heartbreak over my kids' food allergies, that all those "seemingly" dis-connected life events would change energy and FLOW LIKE A RIVER!!! It's all connected... There's no dis-connection or unrelatedness when it comes to our flow.
Eastern healing practices seem to have the right idea. Eastern medicine addresses the whole self when treating an ailment. Unlike Western medicine, it doesn't put a band-aid on the symptom, but instead it heals by going to the root of the problem, which is the whole self. I'm sure there are many other examples of this... what about the little sign in the dentist's office that says "Kill the root, kill the tooth," or something like that.
So, I'm going on this new journey of really working with my rawest and most sensitive beliefs and fears about my food allergy gremlins, and I'm going to work little by little, day by day, thought by thought, prayer by prayer to change my perspective. Work it OUT SISTA!!!! Scared to death, but I'm banking on the fact that in the end, the effort will be SO worth the abundance of blessings.
A wise person once told me that if you want to clean out your closet, there's no getting around pulling out a lot of CRAP before it's clean. So I'm jumping in... pulling up a lot of crap and dealing with it... you know what your issue(s) are.... want to come?
