Spirituality in Your Everyday Life
You Are Important!
So many of us never realize how many obstacles we set up for ourselves. Mostly this is all subconscious due to early childhood programming. You want to be successful and happy, you try and try, but somehow the life you desire is just out of reach or short-lived.
I've seen these self-imposed obstacles over and over in my years of psychic counseling and I've even believed a few of these myself for too many years:
1. "If only…"
This is one of the worst obstacles you can set up for yourself. Your mind is constantly unhappy with anything you currently have in life and it minimizes all your accomplishments. Your lower self tells you that you can't truly be fulfilled unless you have a certain income, relationship, house, car, body, or what-have-you.
This false belief is a way of avoiding the fact that you're unhappy with the choices you've made so far in life. You're certain that someone or something else is the only way to be happy. This never works because the soul wants and needs to learn and grow and choose better each time. Nothing else can do it and nobody else can do it, only you can.
2. "That's just how life is."
Whichever way your life has turned out, it's easy for us to believe "this is just the way life is". If you're in a relationship you aren't happy with, it's easier to remain unhappy than to start all over again. Or, we feel we should stick it out in case things get better, which they won't.
Viewing life in this way shows that you aren't aware that you're the one who makes the choices in life and have gotten you to where you're at right now. Until you accept and truly believe that you're the one in charge of your own happiness, you'll be destined to keep living the life you currently have. Only you can choose differently.
3. "There's nothing I can do." Or, "It's not my fault."
Believing you have no control over what happens in your life is equal to simply giving up. Although you don't have control over other peoples' actions and outside influences, you have complete control over how you act and react toward things.
You can find a better job, a better relationship, take better care of your finances and your health, and make your life better in many small and large ways. Giving up your personal power or not taking responsibility for your life is the easy way out and a guarantee that you'll never have the things you've always wanted.
