It’s that time again. I am doing another 21-day meditation challenge with Oprah and Deepak. Feel free to follow along on my journey as I Become What I Believe.
Self-Awareness Brings Beliefs to Light
1) We all have some negative self-beliefs that are so deep that we may find it difficult to face or attempt to change them. These could be “I am unlovable” or “I am unworthy.” Write down one such belief that resonates with you.
-I am unlovable
-I am unworthy
-I don’t deserve anything good
2) Now describe the ways you avoid the pain of looking at this belief through your attitudes and behavior.
For me, I don’t think I avoid it. I’ve come to a place of acceptance with these things. I think that, to me, the aren’t beliefs anymore they are facts. I accept that no one will love me and that I won’t have a “happy” life. I justify these things by telling myself that this is just some people’s lot in life.
3) To use the power of self-awareness to dissolve this negative belief, write down the qualities of your true self as “I am” statements. In this case it could be “I am love” or “I am worthy.” Set the intention that whenever you feel the shadow of this negative belief impacting your life, you will take a breath and connect with your silent awareness, and feel or experience “I am love,” “I am worthy,” etc.
-I am love
-I am worthy
-I am deserving of good things
