One of the most common things that I work on with my clients is recognizing and disempowering their past way of being.
There is who you are right now.
There is who you have been.
And there is who you want to be.
Who you want to be does not often fit with your past way of being. When threatened, your past way of being can employ:
-An eruption of unstoppable emotion or derailing action
For many people, their past way of being has had ultimate power over them for most of their life. They made a decision at a young age usually to move through life with a certain operating system. Ultimately as people mature, they innately want to grow out of this old and stagnant way of being. You want to feel in control of who you are, as you in the present moment, not your past way of being dictating a stale and unhealthy sense of self.
When experiences present themselves to you as opportunities to change and operate differently from your past way of being, it can feel threatened and often employ whatever it can to distract you, to take you off course and ultimately prevent you from taking your power back; in a way that would inevitably affect it’s ability to influence and keep you from transforming.
Your past way of being is not the voice of God and it is not the source of universal life force energy speaking directly to you. It is your voice of doubt, protection, fight or flight, and self preservation that IS there for a reason, but when left to its own devices WILL run rampant and act as if it IS God. If it can, it will make you believe that too.
Recognizing when you are free versus when you are limited by your past mode of operating is the beginning of stepping into your own power to change.
It is your choice to remain under the your past way of being’s influence, or to embark on the journey up the endless steps of limitless self empowerment.
