“Who are you even, really?”
Walking through a parking lot, I found myself asking myself this question recently. It wasn’t because I don’t know who I am, but I am changing and it feels like it’s happening rapidly. A lot of the beliefs I used to hold have fallen away for various reasons, mostly due to one reason: I have come to believe that I am only love, that love is all that I am comprised of, and therefore anything counter to that is not who I am. This belief has lead me to let go of a lot of things in my life that I didn’t see weren’t serving me until I realized I stopped participating in them with full love and appreciation.
Since this shift, my life has changed pretty drastically in the past few months. It has lead me to see that we align ourselves with our beliefs: we literally line up with our beliefs in the things we attract and repel. I have found that the people I recently met or encountered are much more like me; my relationships have altered because my intentions/beliefs have. I’ve had some business opportunities that either fell through or I turned down, and instead of feeling sad— it just feels like it didn’t align. I know what’s coming, it’s only a matter of time because I have aligned myself with opportunities to come from a place of love— at this point I’ll accept nothing else because it no longer aligns with who I am.
It’s interesting how, when we feel like we deserve more or less or better or worse, and believe it, the Universe shows us we are correct. Things happen “as they are meant to” to show us our beliefs. When things do or don’t work out, we shouldn’t question our self-worth or dig ourselves into a hole, we should question our beliefs about our self-worth and ask why.
Be careful what you believe in because ultimately, you’re right. The Universe wants to show you your beliefs, and since that’s the case, I hope you pick something good. I once had an ex-boyfriend tell me that he felt he wasn’t enough for me. Well, he turned out to be right by showing me just how he felt over and over, so I eventually believed him. No one wants to participate in something that feels “off” or “out of alignment” —what most don’t understand is that part is up to YOU. You are your own creator, you are the realizer of your reality! What a wonderful gift it is then, to realize you want more or better or best even, and then align yourself with it by cementing your beliefs.
I read an article recently about how hard it is to follow your dreams. The author was right, it can be a task. However, thinking something is hard makes it harder. News flash: don’t buy what everyone sells you. Buy what you want to buy. Buy what serves you. Buy what makes you better. Those are the only things you buy, take the rest with a grain of salt …or chuck it completely.
Realizing I am my beliefs has been a pretty powerful game-changer for me. So, “Who am I?” My answer: I am a do-something person when I realize something can be done or done differently or done so that it won’t have to be redone… yes, I am that person. I say it proudly because THAT belief has also changed my life. Believing that I am here to grow has made me grow, stronger and faster. Believing that I am here to learn has made me look for places that I can learn. Finally, figuring out that I am love has helped me to believe that I, myself, am overflowing with love, giving from a place of love and receiving in love.
Our beliefs are truly the most powerful or most detrimental tool we own. Own your beliefs, or watch them own you.
