I pulled this card today, and I wanted to share it with you because it’s the perfect message right now. It asks “What can you release to connect to the source of your power?…” It’s perfect because I’ve been beating myself up over having put my foot in my mouth a couple of days ago, and I’m still feeling bad over it and I need to release that out of me so I can connect with my inner power. Can’t do it if I’m holding on to my mishap, and putting myself down with negative self talk.
Sometimes I say something, or do something without thinking, it just comes out of me, and later it hits me and I’m like OMG!!! I can’t believe I said that or did that. When that happens I have a habit of beating myself up and making myself crazy with negative self talk. I should have known better. Whatever possessed me? Why didn’t I stop myself? I should have…and I’m thinking about how what I said, or did, is perceived by others or how it affected others and what must they think of me, and what can I do now to change it, and…OMG I just can’t believe myself… And the beating up on myself goes on and on…and all it does is make me anxious, stressed out and I feel even worse.
This is part of my growing and honestly, learning to embrace my imperfections has not been easy and I haven’t found that one quick fix yet. And hey, if you know of one please let me know because I’ll take all the help I can get here.
So here’s the wisdom this card offers – It’s during these times that I have to stop and remind myself that stuff happens and I’m not perfect. I’m still working on myself and instead of beating myself up, I should ask myself how is this barrage of negative self talk helping? Am I empowering myself right now? Look at it, learn from it, forgive myself and release it so – I can stand in my power.
If you relate to this message, I’d love to hear from you, feel free to share.
