We all have stories we tell ourselves over and over. These stories are often the reason you keep seeing the same results and outcomes in your life.
And I find these stories are often the root cause of pain, health issues and emotional challenges.
I recently worked with a client experiencing neck and back pain who felt overworked, but was afraid to ask her husband for help.
We uncovered her story and it dated back to childhood when her parents made it clear that she was in charge of her brother and making sure nothing happened to him. We worked on releasing the guilt her inner child still felt and healing this emotional energy at the source. From there, she was able to realize her power in the situation and to feel worthy of setting a boundary and speaking up.
Stories drive your motivations and your actions. They often play behind the scenes making you unaware of them. Fortunately you can change them at anytime!
Shining a light on them is a powerful first step in healing. You can begin to understand your own stories by paying attention to what motivates the choices you make and the actions you take or don’t take.
What beliefs are you holding onto that are keeping you stuck in the same patterns? When you identify a story, first ask yourself if it’s true. If not, remember that you are the creator of your life, and you can begin to rewrite these old beliefs and reinforce new ones.
