Have you ever felt like what you just did or said was something that your parents would have done years ago. Maybe there’s small actions you find yourself doing as you get older and think, “Oh God, I’m turning into my Mother!”
It’s true. I don’t know why it seems to happen more over time. I mean we don’t live at home anymore. We don’t see these traits or habits on a regular basis but it seems to grow with time.
You’ve probably heard me talk about how we inherit more than eye or hair color. That we inherit past emotions, traumas and beliefs as well.
We all have baggage.
It’s like you’re born preprogrammed with someone else’s baggage, that weighs you down. It causes you to trip or worse, keeps you tied in one place unable to move forward at all.
You have all that inherited stuff, some good and some not. But how about what you pick up after your’re born?
Under the age of 5 we’re all like huge sponges. We take in everything that’s put in front of us. It’s the hyper mode of human development. It’s needed for survival, socialization and so much more, but there’s a lot we could most likely do without.
For instance, if your family struggled financially and there was a lot of stress around lack of money or finding a job, then you could have absorbed a lot of that, adding it to your internal programing.
You may find yourself as an adult, struggling with making money, even if you have a good education and talent.
Why is it such a struggle?
That old programing keeps you stuck. It keeps reminding you that life is hard. It may say there aren’t any jobs. Do you remember when you heard your Dad say that? Does it sound familiar to you now?
I remember my Dad saying, “You don’t need the best and I was made to feel guilty for wanting it. It took me years to get that programing out of my head.
Early in my marriage my husband would buy me something nice and often I would feel bad and take it back. I felt I didn’t need something as good as that and we could use the money for something else more important.
I’m happy to say I’ve learned to clear that old programing and much more. Once I realized it wasn’t really my own thoughts and that I wanted to have a different belief system, things in my life started flowing much easier.
I was able to attract more of life’s very best gems.
Just because you were born with certain programing doesn’t mean you have to keep it.
The beauty of life is, it’s yours to mold into whatever you want. You can continue on in the pattern that you’re used to, or you can choose to release what no longer serves you and create a life you love.
It’s all up to you.
Believe me, it’s not that hard and with my tools it’s so simple.
