Language creates the reality of your world, if you wish to change the reality of your world, change your language! As a coach intuitive I coach to cause not symptom – language is my vehicle to intuit the causal dynamics running for my clientele. Part of the human condition is to subconsciously, and sometimes consciously feeding negative affirmations that completely sabotage possibility. These negative affirmations I call, ‘relinquishment buckets’. Throw away statements that are repeatedly stated and yet there is a massive disconnect to the cost of feeding these statements on a regular basis.
What are the stock standard negative affirmations bucket, throw-away statements that human beings use daily?
I refer to them below:-
1. I don’t have enough TIME
2. I don’t have enough ENERGY
3. I don’t have enough MONEY
4. I don’t know HOW – some level of CONFUSION
5. Manifesting illness
These are powerful negative affirmations we affirm every day! How convenient you perceive that you do not have the time, money, energy, or don’t know how etc, you don’t have to be responsible for what it is you say that you want.
Through group facilitation over 2 decades, I would ask retreat participants to turn to the person next to them and share what their common relinquishment buckets were and then ask in a round-robin setting to then share with the group. The purpose was two-pronged. (1) To land for the group how common these throw away statements are as part of the human condition and (2) The power of awareness-based training and that once aware one can change the dysfunctional dynamic.
I am a proponent of reverse psychology, through the power of awareness one then uses the negative statement as an access point to call themselves to account, for when one is:-
COMMITTED one ALWAYS:-
1. Finds the time
2. Finds the money
3. Finds the energy
4. Works out the HOW
5. And looks after their wellbeing such that they do not manifest an illness to abdicate responsibility for showing up in the world!
It’s ludicrous to continue to feed a negative affirmation that does not serve you.
In a given day if you focus your awareness on this dynamic you will hear it EVERYWHERE. In your children, in your partner, in your friends, in your work colleagues, in your family, in your company culture. It comes with the human territory and what it highlights is the level of disassociation evident in our society.
Evidence-based people are waiting for evidence to show up BEFORE they trust and folks if you are unconsciously feeding these relinquishment buckets daily it does not take a rocket scientist to understand why you life is showing up as it is. What you feed is what you manifest!
Trust and possibility based people know if they trust the reward will be evidence! Try on you are the creator of your reality, this is not a new concept but until you truly shift this dynamic then you will find enough evidence to sink a ship that will keep the dysfunctional dynamic in place. How many books do we need to read that say be careful what you think your thoughts create your reality – hello, they do!
Maybe just maybe it is time to shift your ‘stinking thinking’ and learn what it takes to live and lead a COMMITTED life for the alternative is just ludicrous!
I will leave you in the inquiry today! What are your relinquishments buckets and what could be possible if you no longer tolerated them? What could you accomplish?
