It is easy to live in struggle town when it is where you are used to living, it is easy to think that we are our story and the things that have happened in our lives.
You are not your story. You HAVE a story that is a collection of experiences that give us opportunities to grow, learn and become more than who we were before!
Mama feelings seem to have a common theme particularly for those that have suffered as a result of a difficult pregnancy, birth and the events that have occurred post birth - feelings of guilt, depression, feeling not enough, feeling broken, shame, inadequacy, out of control, unsupported.
These feelings are feeding back to us that the expectations we have placed on ourselves, is us living in fantasy, caught up in the story we have created, of how things should have been, or should be.
You want to stop feeling like you are constantly immersed in struggle town?
Three ways to release the expectations that you are currently holding yourself at ransom with;
1. Stop projecting your expectations on other people, or material things;
They do not hold the key to what you desire YOU do! Time to go within and see where maybe you are having resistance to change, what messages are being reflected back to you from those closest to you, what are you not letting yourself shift, change and heal in order to move forward?
2. See the opportunities for growth;
In the events that have occurred in your life, what was the opportunity for growth - who did you have to become in order to get you through that situation? Who was supporting you? Who was loving you? Where were you feeling valued? Who was listening to you? Where there is a negative there is a positive - duality of life.
3. Stop chasing 'happiness';
It is unrealistic for us to think that we can be living in a state of happiness at all times, the more you try and chase it the more it will elude you. When you are not happy every minute of the day, or something goes wrong you those negative feelings will flood in and game over, you will feel on a subconscious level a feeling of failure. Remember where there is negative there will be a positive look for the opportunity for growth.
As we start to shift these expectations, we open up space emotionally, physically and spiritually to uncover our soul purpose, how we want to show up in the world, reclaiming that inner power and start loving life and our bodies again - because we are looking within.
One of the best things I ever did was invest in mentoring, guidance and support to help me through, call me out on limiting beliefs, to coach me to see that I was not a summery of what had happened to me, that it in fact had happened FOR me in order for me to become who I am today - if it wasn't being diagnosed with prolapse that sparked this soul purpose journey it would have been something else, where I am now is where I am meant to be.
You do NOT have to do this alone, that is an expectation that we as mamas need to call bullshit on, we do NOT have to be able to do everything. We do not just have to lone ranger it and hope for the best.
Are you ready to invest in yourself? To deeply shift, heal + release what is needed in order to vibrate and live at another level?
