What holds you back?
In her book, “A Return to Love”, Marianne Williamson says “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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”
What stops us from being all that we can be? What fears or beliefs about ourselves do we hold onto that keep us stuck and unhappy? Our beliefs can be unconscious. We may believe that we are not good enough or we will be rejected if we disagree or stand up for ourselves. We may believe we don’t deserve to be treated with respect and love. When our beliefs are unconscious they can affect our personal relationships, how we interact with others and how we think about ourselves.
Our beliefs are not too easy to change because they can protect us like a security blanket. It can be uncomfortable to look at the underlying emotions attached to our beliefs. When we do, we take off our security blanket and become open to the opportunity for change and growth.
