Most of the time we need to shed our old self to make room for the new vibrant, healthy, positive you in your life, your business and your relationships but often that’s just not comfortable.
Click the video below to watch how shedding your old self can create the success you want now.
It’s so funny because recently I was listening to a talk about snakes and how they shed their skin. They have to rub up against sharp things to get rid of that old skin so they could make room for that new, vibrant beautiful skin. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a snakeskin when it’s still on the snake, but it’s beautiful. It shimmers. There’s something amazing about it, but it doesn’t look so pretty when he’s shedding it when it’s all that old, gross skin and it’s laying there on the ground. It’s like, “Ew, Not so good.”
It reminded me of how we go through life and how we’re constantly shifting and transforming, but it doesn’t always feel so comfortable. It’s not unlike that whole snake story because when we rub up against something that feels uncomfortable and we don’t want to change, and it doesn’t matter if it’s in your business, your relationships, life, health, it can be uncomfortable.
With health, it could be having to change your diet.
You’re trying to get healthier and you’re doing a three-day juice cleanse, that doesn’t sound like so much fun all the time. Does it? But we get through it, and afterwards, we feel amazing. It’s that beautiful light at the end of the tunnel, right? It’s that desirable result, but when we’re in the moment of the transformation and that shift, it can feel pretty crappy and uncomfortable, so sometimes we stop doing it.
The Detox or release phase.
I don’t know if you’ve ever tried a diet where you started getting headaches to start with and you felt so uncomfortable that you stopped the diet. You stopped eating well because then you got comfortable again, but you never reached your goal. It’s that way with your business, your relationships and other aspects of your life.
It’s so important that you really take the time to put into your life and business that it takes to make the shift. It’s not always overnight. It can happen quickly but sometimes it could take months, and you need to give yourself that time to get there.
The first thing you have is your intention.
- What do you want to create?
- What do you want to make out of your life?
- What goals do you have?
- How much money do you want to make?
- How much weight do you want to lose, etc?
Then you DECIDE to move forward with that intention.
Then prepare yourself for the uncomfortable part of the shift and embrace it knowing you will come out the other end in victory!
What you might not realize is when your detoxing, (and this happens when we release emotions, beliefs and past traumas held in our cells too), your cells are holding onto a ton of toxins. When you start detoxing, the body makes room for those cells to open and release those toxins. They must go somewhere, so they go into your bloodstream.
When they go into your bloodstream, what happens? You don’t feel good. They were in a tightly protected container before. Now you feel worse because they’re in your bloodstream. It’s like, “What happened?” and you feel like crap so you want to stop whatever is causing it… It’s like then you get When you don’t feel good you want to give up and go back to the old habits that are comfortable to you.
Keep letting go to WIN!
But if you keep up with it, if you keep moving forward, after a few days you start feeling better and better. Then after a while, you’re feeling amazing and you’re like, “I am so glad I did that.” In fact, a lot of people do it over and over again because they love how they feel after it’s all done.
It’s the same way with energy. Any time you are dealing with getting through negative beliefs, those things that like, “I’m not good enough. I can’t do anything right”, they draw your energy down. You get depressed. You feel sad. You don’t know what to do with yourself. You might feel tired of it because it drags you.
down on all levels. Every time your energy gets dragged down, your cells get dragged down too
Those negative emotions and energies are held in your body just like physical toxins from food and chemicals.
Get uncomfortable for a little bit to feel AMAZING FOREVER!
When you start thinking positive thoughts, when you start releasing things with energy, those cells are able to open up. That’s why people often feel really yucky when they first start using energy work and working through their negative beliefs and emotions. It’s so cool because for me it’s always both.
It’s always like I work with energy and I get the physical detox and I also get the energetic detox. I might get crabbier at first. I’m like, “Ah! I don’t like how I’m feeling. I’m squirming. I don’t want to make this change. I don’t want to change this thought pattern. This has been with me for too long. If I’m good enough, what’s going to happen then?”
This seems kind of crazy, like why would I ever NOT want to get rid of the belief that I’m not good enough? We all want to feel like, “I am more than enough. I am great.” Who would not want to feel that way? But we do. We grab on to those old habits because they’re what we know, they feel normal and we’re comfortable with them.
When we’re comfortable with them, even if it’s not right logically, we’re comfortable and we don’t want to change and go through that discomfort that comes with the change, and so we stay in those negative patterns and it sucks because it keeps your life down. It keeps your relationships negative. It keeps the people that you surround yourself … Possibly they’re toxic and they’re not good for you because the negative people that you surround yourself with usually are going to reinforce those negative thoughts and beliefs that you’ve had.
It’s time to let go of toxic relationships for good and become vibrant inside and out!
When you decide to finally let it go, let them go, change your life and move forward, all these things start dropping off. You feel lighter. You feel healthy. You feel vibrant. That’s what I want you to see in yourself.
I want you to see you have a choice and you just have to decide that a little bit of discomfort is so worth getting to the other side where you shed that old skin, you rub it off, even with sharp objects around you, heck, bring on the sharp objects, you can then rub it off, and then get that vibrant skin, that glow, that uplifting energy, because once you have that, you start attracting the clients that you want, the people that you want to have as your core inner circle, the people around you that you love working with, the relationships, your mates, partners. Your children start acting differently toward you. They notice the shifts too. It really does impact every area of your life.
I really wanted to make sure that I got that across to you because it’s so important that you understand that any of the discomforts that you have when you’re going through your shifts when you’re transforming into that new you, that it’s so worth it.
Next week we are going to talk about how this can all impact your business and help it take the turn toward success that you’ve always wanted, so stay tuned!
