There is no instinct like that of the heart. ~ Lord Byron
Does it feel like you are experiencing a "speed up" of time? That everything is different or changing in your world? Stop for a minute and look at where you are right now in your life and where you were three to five years ago. Do you see that you, your life, is not at all the same as it used to be?
For some of you, the changes that have happened in your life are exciting. For others, the changes may make you feel depressed or fearful or you name the emotion. Change can be scary or it can be exciting. Your choice how you perceive it!
Certain beliefs are ingrained in us from the moment we are born. Our family, friends, society, teachers, the media and the environment condition our mind and our beliefs about everything! These beliefs may change and morph into something slightly different but they basically stay the same unless you do something to consciously change those beliefs.
Earlier when you looked at where you were three to five years ago, I believe most of you would say that you “thought” about it. As some of you have experienced, you are very good at thinking and rethinking things. When you do this, you spin your wheels and don’t move forward!
Have you every stopped to really look at your beliefs? When considering your beliefs, there is one simple, little change you can make. Ask yourself “How do I feel about this?” Rather than thinking and rethinking about something, you “feel” about it.
Would you like to feel good about the changes, the choices, you are making in your life?
You can do this when you are examining your beliefs, choices before you or any decision you have to make. In an earlier blog, Feel Good Decisions, I wrote about making decisions from a place of love for yourself. Making decisions based on what felt best for you to do.
You can now take this one step further and use the “feeling” method to ask yourself if your current beliefs are still true for you. As the world changes and you go through your own changes, some of your beliefs may no longer be true for who you are now. If you are feeling like you are stuck or not moving forward in life, your beliefs may be holding you back.
As an example, when you were young, everyone made fun of how you dressed. They teased you and called you ugly. You believed it. That belief became so ingrained within you it affected your self-confidence. Now at age thirty, that lack of self-confidence is affecting your work performance even though you have the most experience of anyone in your department and have won numerous work excellence awards.
Regardless of your age, there is no time like the present to examine your beliefs and see if there are some you would like to change. This may seem overwhelming to you. Just take one area of your life and start with those beliefs.
Only do what your heart tells you. ~ Princess Diana
Some people say the feelings from their heart are God, their soul, their gut or their intuition talking to them. Regardless of what you personally call it, allow yourself to be guided by what you are feeling. Will you be right all the time? Probably not, especially at first because you will doubt yourself. The more you trust your feelings, the inner knowing, the more you will be confident that you can trust your feelings about everything in your life. Wait till you see how that feels!
