Let’s think about when we were born and our early childhood. Our natural setting at those times of life: I can do anything I want, Life is good, I love life.
When did that setting change? Think about when it shifted to nothing works for me? Life sucks? Does it ever get better then this? I’m such a failure? Etc. I can remember for me, it shifted in my late childhood. It changed, when I felt neglect and was told often that I was stupid. This shifted my setting rather quickly. Do you remember when it shifted for you? Why it shifted?
The good news is this isn’t our natural setting. Our natural state is to realize, we can do anything we put our minds to and take action on. When we are in our present moment without judgment, we hear our inner voice shift to life is good and anything is possible. But then something causes our setting to change and we fall back into the negative perspective we were taught. Our triggers can be rejection, conflict, past baggage resurfacing, physical injury or illness.
Take some time to realize, it’s not our natural setting. Our natural setting is positive, it’s filled with hope and happiness. Every time, we have those thoughts or we hear we can’t do it. Shut off that setting and take a moment to find your core and go back to our natural state of truth: you can do anything and life is great!
