you will never be able to feel value."
The ever present fight for productivity, knowledge or balance is to fight a losing battle. The thing that might lead to all spiritual experiences experienced in a life are triggered, not by the place arrived in, the influences from others, nor will it be entirely to do with meditation or the practice of it, although that helps.
What starts us off on those few beautiful journeys is the uprooting and acceptance of our core beliefs and how everything in our lives relates to them.
Our core beliefs directly relate to our shadows, and the conditioning that has been put upon us from birth; beliefs given to us from our parents, teachers, and society as a whole.
They may seem overwhelmingly prevalent or hard to discover, but the more you whittle them down you will probably find that they relate to one or two core beliefs that your subconscious mind holds dear.
Not only that, but they are similar if not the same as most other people's.
Uprooting our core beliefs can inspire compassion for each other as well as help us to accept our shadow selves and the areas of the self we are suppressing.
An irritation that crosses your path in your daily life or something that has always annoyed you about others crops up.
Let's take a simple example. Someone - a flatmate or neighbor is always knocking on your door or coming in your room and it makes you tired.
So from a statement like 'They're making me tired,' (as the complaint is usually directed outside at the other) we can then use a few simple sentences to have a dialogue with ourselves.
Another example. Someone who almost died from an illness when they were a child and should feel lucky to be alive. I hurt my friend's feelings.
Using any irritation or problem throughout the day can be whittled down to these basic core beliefs in your head as you go about your day.
Unlike meditation (although best done alongside meditation) this gives you a better grasp of knowing when to just let go and when to uproot these things, as letting go and dissolving stuff is not always the way to leave it behind forever.
Dissolving doesn't always
In the example I'm not good enough would become I am enough.
With any to do with fear, they would become I am safe or I accept myself… the list goes on. As with all 'positive thinking' however, you really need to completely uproot your shadow side, explore your suppressed self, and also learn to accept those aspects of yourself.
Love them like a child and recognize that they might never entirely go away.
Rather than trying to push it away, embrace and make friends with it. I am enough is transformative as it affirms that just being alive; your existence is enough and anything you do beyond that is a bonus really.
Pretty great huh? Sitting down and exploring these core beliefs can do amazing things for us; we can rewire our brains and free up space for us to do the things we want to be doing.
We are able to heal our
inner child and gain maturity and real perspective in our
relationships with others.
