Stop Consuming and Start CreatingDec 02, 2019
This will mean different things to different people, but here’s what it means to me: I have found “consuming” to be a huge distraction. I used to love the motto “when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping!” Cracked me up. But I’ve realized over the years, that I use shopping (aka consuming), as a means of numbing out - no different than drugs or alcohol. And now that we can do it online so easily, it is a handy distraction when we aren’t sure what to do next or especially when we don’t feel like tackling the job at hand.
So when I have creative work to do and find myself trolling Zulilly or Amazon instead, I use this to inform me. I acknowledge that I am avoiding and I ask myself why? What specific fear is being triggered?
Usually, it is my fear around “being seen”. I have diametrically opposed energies within me - one which wants to unleash my inner Rockstar and one that follows my parents’ rules about not calling attention to oneself.
Your specifics may be different, but if you can feel an inner persona that opposes the persona you were taught to display, you can relate to this “push-me-pull-you” effect - the phenomenon that triggers habitual behaviors to prevent you from overstepping the safety zone.
Step #1 - Become aware of your habitual behaviors that don’t truly belong to you, but were simply ‘downloaded’ a looooong time ago.
Step #2: - Get clear on your most deeply seeded desires.
Step #3 - Methodically peel away the stuff that isn’t truly yours.
Step #4 - As you lighten your energy body in step #3, you make space for the real you to emerge.
Step #5 - Honor your authentic self unapologetically (and offer that long awaited gift to the world).
Another way to view it, is to stop consuming, release others’ energetic imprint and start creating (allowing) your own!!!!
