Thoughtful Thursday - Stand In Your Light

Close your eyes for a moment.

Breathe in.... and out.

Notice how you feel. 

I'd like you to think back to the last time you went out on a limb, tried something different, tried something new that you really wanted to try, only to have someone judge you.

How did it feel?

Did it stop you from doing that thing you wanted to do?

How did that feel? How did it feel for their judgements to stop you from something you wanted so badly?

I'd like you to place your hand over your heart right now.

Feel that heartbeat.

Feel that rhythm, know it beats only for you, and you alone.

For your passions, your wants, your needs.

For your life, and all it brings you.

I want you to repeat after me:

"I am not responsible for anyone's distorted perceptions of me. From today, I stand firm in my own light, truth and power."

Repeat this three times.

I want you to understand this from such a deep level that you never let it go.

People will come and go.

Their judgements will come and go.

Some people really do only want the best for you, but you have to understand this very important concept:

People can only help you from their own limited stories that they tell themselves.

They may sincerely want the best for you, but if they live in their own fears and limiting beliefs, they will never encourage you to start that business, try that workout, go to that concert, talk to that person you've wanted to talk to.

They'll only see the "problems" because that is how they see the world.

Their distorted perceptions are not yours.

They are not your responsibility.

Be cautious, yes, do your research, but if your head and heart are saying go for it, then don't let anyone stop you.

Stand firm in your own light, truth and power.

Some things will not work out, but some will.

And only you can judge that for yourself.

Hugs,

Meghann
