What is dragging you down? What overwhelms you? What is cluttering your mind?
We inevitably tolerate unnecessary things in our lives. We allow things to drain our energy and this often leaves us depleted, demoralized, stuck and unable to see a way out of a seemingly hopeless situation. We surrender to helplessness, we utter words such as “that’s just the way it is” or “that’s just the way I am”.
Let me bring it home for you… Here are some examples of things we tolerate, things we put up with and thus standing in our way of us being all we can be and living the live we desire.
Many a times we put off menial tasks. It piles up, accumulates over time and before we know it, we have an unmanageable list of incomplete tasks. We keep on looking the other way as if these tasks will complete itself. This taps our energy.
Our exercising habits, our eating habits, our sleeping habits… we allow bad habits to occupy space in our minds and burden us.
Tidiness. Our surroundings affect how we feel. Cluttered environments contribute to a cluttered and burdened mind. Putting off the task of tidying our surroundings eventually creates a burden we carry, unconsciously. Hoarding, an extreme form of clutter, makes every day living significantly difficult.
Undone filing. You may have files stacked in a corner of your office, a desk or even hidden in a cupboard.
Indecision. Have you been putting off making decisions?
Procrastination is our brain’s response to protect us against things like fear of failure, criticism, judgment, feeling overwhelmed, depression, anxiety, having difficulty concentrating.
Toxic people. People tapping your energy, always looking for the negative, the eternal pessimist. People who bring everyone down by what they say and how they behave. People thriving on drama – seeking out what is wrong – if one wrong is fixed, they look for another emergency – life is a stage for constant drama. People who always complain – thriving on crisis, always wanting to be the centre of attention.
Bruce Lipton, a developmental biologist notable for his views on epigenetics, indicates that 95% of your life comes from the subconscious program. Even before we are born, patterns are formed and we subconsciously perform these patterns throughout our life. The good news is that we can change these patterns, the programming that took place before the age of 6 and throughout our lies. We can create new patterns, we can reprogramme our subconscious.
This, however, requires our attention and awareness.
