Do you have old “stories” about why things are the way they are in your life? If you do, you’re not alone. These stories start as painful experiences, many of them dating back to childhood. Our response to our old stories gets reinforced each time we remember them. The painful experiences are over, and yet the stories live on.
Most of our negative stories involve setbacks, failure, and painful experiences from the past. They continue to be relived, most of the time subconsciously. It’s almost as if we wear them, they are so much a part of us. We may even embellish them with the energy of fear. Our stories have the power to become our “truth”, if we allow it. We may find ourselves reinforcing them, justifying them, using them to get sympathy, or to justify playing it safe.
We may have built up conditioned responses in our current lives based on what happened in the past. And it’s quite possible that we use them as excuses, to keep us from expanding into new territory. Maybe we even feel that we’re better off with our limits and excuses, because they keep us “safe” and prevent us from venturing into new territory.
- “Who or where would I be without this story?”
- “If I truly believe that I am NOT my story, and that I am FREE to move forward without my past limiting me in any way, what is possible for me?”
- What have I frequently told myself about why things are the way they are?
I work with many clients who have been clinging to old stories for years, and they just hadn’t realized how limiting it is. Just know that it is totally possible to release your stories and your past. Using transformational techniques such as EFT and Matrix Reimprinting actually make this an easy process.
Once you let go of the past, you will unleash your potential. You will access inner power and wisdom that you didn’t know you had. You may even be able to create better relationships, health, and much more joy in living. Abundance comes to us in all areas of our lives when we let go of the past, with all the negativity it conjures up. We are set free.
