As you reflect on your day, what is your predominant feeling?
These days I spend most of my time in a fairly neutral, peaceful-feeling state. But that wasn’t always the case.
I used to be really uptight – trying to control every action by everyone in the house, and reacting harshly if people (particularly my tiny humans) didn’t do things exactly my way.
Things started shifting in a meditation – this sudden feeling of peace flooded through me. As I felt my energy shift, I realized that my default state was more like a low-level stress. It was below my normal awareness, so I didn’t know it was there.
My head was telling me things were okay. But when I finally tuned into my body, it told a different story.
Since then, I’ve done a lot of work on that stress and on my reactions. For me, they both stem from the same stuff: an energetic mix of disempowering belief systems and suppressed emotions.
To illustrate, here are a few of the things I learned:
One reason I was constantly on edge was because my unconscious was monitoring the environment to look for “danger” and make sure my kids didn’t die. Once I realized that thought was in the energy mix, I could challenge it: is it true? What is the likelihood? Then, I felt the suppressed emotion behind that fear. Now I’m able to enjoy my kids instead of worrying about them.
Another reason was my need to be in control. My unconscious was running an old belief that my family was unsafe if I didn’t 100% control my environment. If I asked my kids to brush their teeth, and they went into their bedroom, I exploded. Again, I noticed the thought, then I felt the emotion behind that thought. I’m now able to look for different solutions that get the tiny humans and I to the same result (like getting out the door) without needing to control their every move.
The way I see the human experience – we all have a flame of peace within. If we were completely tapped into that, every moment would be great. But we have these layers of blankets over top of that flame.
Those layers carry the rumble of disempowering thoughts and painful emotions. If we don’t know they’re there and do the work of releasing them, they pile on. The more they pile on, the more we feel them, the more uncomfortable we are in our skin.
But that’s not how it has to be – nor is that how we’re meant to be. We’re wired for health, happiness, abundance, peace, connection… all the feel goods. We’ve just been conditioned away from them – the blankets have piled on.
One goal I have for my clients is to teach you how to identify, and release, your own blankets.
Because this, dear mama, is how you inch yourself out of burn out.
This is how you tap into your confidence. Your peace. Your health, happiness, and abundance. You remove the blankets, one-by-one, and allow that flame to shine through.
Feeling More Peace Within is one of the four results pillars that my clients experience as a result of working with me.
