It is in the letting go, that you open yourself up to receiving more.
Often creative people are sensitive people. We feel deeper, we empathize more easily + we bring all of this emotion into our creative work, but sometimes this sensitivity combined with our ego’s need and constant search for approval, can lead us down a path where we add meaning to all kinds of events.
And soon, we interpret who we are based on what is happening + how others are reacting to us.
When we take everything personally, we become imprisoned in our own mind.
What anyone else does or says has nothing to do with you.
In the best selling book, The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz reminds us that:
“Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds. When we really see other people as they are without taking it personally, we can never be hurt by what they say or do.
Even the opinions you have about yourself are not necessarily true; therefore you don’t need to take whatever you hear in your own mind personally. Don’t take anything personally because by taking things personally you set yourself up to suffer for nothing….”
When we quiet the ego mind, that loves to label, judge and criticize, we can more easily see how we have been the ones adding meaning to circumstances + events, creating disempowering agreements + labels about who we are.
This guided meditation + visualization will help you release + let go of whatever it is you’ve been holding on to, so you can then open your hands + your heart to receiving more abundance.
