When you are aiming to reprogram your set patterns and to elevate yourself toward gratitude, ease, grace, and flow, one of the simplest — yet profound — tools at your disposal is affirmations.
But wait, there’s more! As you may have been living within certain belief structures and a multitude of suppressing, negating, or otherwise spiritually stifling frequencies, who you are is essentially hardwired into your body.
Whatever instigated the program in the first place was powerful enough to make it stick.
Whether it happened in this lifetime or another, whether it was a traumatic event, ill-informed or misguided parenting, propaganda, societal influences — or any of a thousand other reasons — a fundamental change within us requires more than simply repeating lovely sounding words and phrases.
It’s very easy to get discouraged and defeated in this process. Our ego and pride are always ready to step in and redirect energies elsewhere, or remind us of someone or something to blame and resent for all this pain.
The fact remains that it is ultimately we who must choose to change; it’s our life, our story, our reality, and our universe.
Energy, repetition, elevated emotion, and thoughts (or words) created all of your programming. Deleting it and adding our preferred programming requires the same — especially in the early stages.
One not only has to become aware of the myriad ways in which we uncreate, defer, or delay our desired outcomes (eg. I can’t, I don’t know, I’m broke, I’m lonely) but also to replace them all, actively.
Shame, guilt, apathy, grief, and desire (neediness) are all lower forms of energy than even anger is. There’s a reason: anger is a powerful, motivating energy that forces us to move, and to do something.
As we move up the scale by living through courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, and reason, we drive toward the inevitable: love…then joy, peace, and finally, enlightenment.
And perhaps you’ve already made the natural connection here: doing the work to resolve, release, and reprogram (thus reclaim) the lower vibrations and frequencies, we will by default move ourselves out of the cloudy, mired, and mucky mindsets, upward into our most natural, resonant, and healthy vibratory states.
We can keep looking outside of ourselves for answers and solutions, but remember that it is from the outside whence all the layers of weight and illusion were introduced.
They have served their purpose, but what do you truly want?
