Our old beliefs and stories are inextricably linked to our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. These outdated beliefs can often create blocks in our life and, among many other things, can prevent us from committing to our health and goals. Old emotional and mental body beliefs hold us back, manifest in the physical body as dis-ease, and create subconscious patterns for the way we interact with others, view the world, react to situations, and treat ourselves.
How would it feel to mindfully interact with others, objectively view the world, respond (rather than react) to situations, and love yourself from an empowered place? This is what happens when we’re able to identify, confront, and transmute these old imprints.
Be honest and examine your life. We tend to have a few behaviors, traits, patterns, etc. about ourselves that we may not understand, particularly like, or that we feel are hindering our growth. This may look like continuing to mindlessly eat despite the promises you make to yourself to practice mindful eating. This may look like following through on that commitment to move your body for 30 minutes every day or meditating each morning or lovingly showing up for family members after a long day at work rather than coming home and being an ass. The way you do one thing, is the way you do everything and these patterns show up in a variety of ways.
Until these things are addressed and shifted, their power will remain and there will be parts of us that are malnourished as our vital energy force goes to feed this parasitic form.
Some of the ways these stories can show up:
- Seeking advice outside of yourself more than relying on your internal wisdom
- Trying all the latest “fad diets” or exercise regimens
- Fierce food cravings
- Turning to substances, technology, food, sex, etc. to provide a (false) sense of nourishing yourself
- Being unable to follow through on promises made to yourself
- Pushing yourself too hard all the time
- Experiencing a chronic feeling of dissatisfaction with yourself
- Lashing out easily
- Selling yourself short
- Continuing to attract the same situations and types of people
- Finding yourself complaining about the same things repeatedly
When it comes to having difficulty in creating the sustainable health and wellness shifts you desire, it’s often important to look beneath the surface and seek the counsel of an unbiased expert outsider who won’t cosign your BS and who can help you see blockages and then work through them with a variety of resources. Creating manageable action steps tailored to your lifestyle is crucial! Flower Essences can help to subtly shift the energetic imprint of these old beliefs and are especially powerful when simultaneously used while creating new habits. We’re able to act from an empowered place that stems from self-love vs punishment and self-deprecation. Above all, patience, self-compassion, and a fierce dedication to yourself will take you beyond what you ever thought possible for yourself.
