It was not until I had done extensive inner work on myself that I realized the beliefs I had adopted were the direct result of my childhood and the experiences I had growing up and even in my later years. The beliefs were seeped in my subconscious, blocking what I truly desired.
A Consciousness to Struggle
Growing up, I had heard this story from my father a thousand times. He spoke often how he worked hard in college and worked two jobs. Later, he spoke of how he struggled at the companies he worked at to become successful. Recently, I heard a friend telling me how it was natural to struggle. She said things and money didn’t come easily.
The Old Me Accepted This Belief
I accepted the belief that I had to struggle or work hard for anything in my life. It was so deeply entrenched in my subconscious that I expected it. I EXPECTED that any desire I had in life had to be fulfilled after struggling. It couldn’t come effortlessly. Any relationship in my life had to be filled with ups and downs. My life had to be topsy curvy.
I honor and respect that my father had to go through challenges to get where he was, but the thinking that it had to be the case for everything else in life was just not true. And I had inherited this consciousness from my family. My father inherited this belief from his family! I heard it day after day through parents, friends, and random strangers.
My Responsibility to Be Aware and Clear the Blocks
But this is not true. Who says that life has to be a struggle? Why can’t life be a beautiful flow? Why can’t relationships flow effortlessly? Why can’t our desires fulfill magically? Why can’t miracles happen frequently? I genuinely believe all of these things now!
I took the responsibility for my limiting beliefs and thinking patterns and replaced them with ones that supported me. And holy, my life flows a lot more beautifully now. Things fall into place way more perfectly and almost magically. Perhaps because I expect them to.
