Quit The BS Stories That Are Holding You Back!
I do it. You do it. We all do it. We feed ourselves BS stories, yes that stands for bullshit, over and over again. Why we can’t do something, have something, be someone. We are a culmination of the stories we tell ourselves! More often than not, the stories that hold us back simply stem from fear, and we put so much energy into concocting them, and believing them, that it is hard to change them around. The good news is that you can change your stories beautiful, you really can.
Last year I attended my first women’s circle which you can read about here. I instantly fell in love with everything about them. The idea of having a safe space to go to and be vulnerable and heard while connecting with yourself and others is just beautiful! For months after I dreamt about facilitating a local circle, but kept telling myself I couldn’t for many reasons – all of which were absolute BS! I told myself all sorts of crazy things, because deep down I was scared that I wasn’t going to be good enough. I told myself that I couldn’t manifest that dream, if I was busy manifesting others, totally discounting that they would in fact work hand in hand, just as they should. I told myself that I wasn’t spiritual enough to host a circle, because I didn’t know anything about witches or angels – really!? I told myself that it would be impossible to find a local venue that was suitable, if I couldn’t host them at my own home, and I knew I wasn’t able to do that. I even I told myself that I didn’t dress like other people I have seen hosting circles (clearly not many!) so therefore I couldn’t possibly host a circle and attract the people those other facilitators would attract. Oh, the irony!
I now realise that I don’t want everyone to be attracted to, and resonate with me – but there will be people out there that are drawn to my own unique energy. In fact, there will be the perfect amount of people that are. I don’t need to know a damn thing about witches or angels if I am following my heart and simply leading and sharing what I do know from a place of love – each circle is unique with their rituals and practices. I didn’t need to agonise over how I could make a gathering work at my home, when I know it is just not suitable, because the perfect venue happened to pop up right in front of me, in the most perfect way. You see, in 4 weeks time, I will be facilitating my very own sacred sister circle and I cannot wait!
I stopped telling myself BS and simply allowed myself to feel the fear. By doing that and giving myself permission to see what I was truly scared of, I was able to work through it. There was no need to continue feeding myself the stories that were holding me back. Next time you find you are talking yourself out of something, or telling yourself that you can’t have/do/be someone or something, just stop. Recognise the fear, and quit the BS. You’ve got this!
