This "I Am" dilemma is really speaking to my soul, y'all, so I'm continuing on the journey of hacking our inner-dialogue. Care to join me?
I hope so!
For a brief moment in my previous post, "I Am", I mentioned that we all have self-sabotaging thoughts, and what we can do to change it.
It occurred to me that someone reading this could think by repeating I Am mantras over and over, we can totally eradicate the negative self-image and self-talk.
Will we ever really dissolve all the battles going on inside our minds?
I don't know but I do know we can slow it down, process it, step away from it, and resolve it.
While we may not be able to completely demolish our inner demons, we can help release them by making the necessary space for other loving qualities to come through.
Tracking your thought patterns is one sure way to follow yourself down the rabbit hole. Another surefire way is meditation and yoga.
Our yoga practice opens up our physical and subtle bodies to allow our energy channels to clear throughout our system- evenly and effectively.
By increasing your prana flow and breath, you are rejuvenating the mind and transforming from the inside out.
I'm a huge advocate that yoga helps us properly deal with our problems, and old thought/belief patterns.
Get moving, y'all!
From our movement we need stillness. Stillness brings your Self into the focus.
Stillness is the key to all the inner peace bubbling up from our center.
In this stillness of meditation is where the "I Am" mantras can help clear the pathways tremendously.
Let's get to the grit of self-love, shall we?
I encourage you to reflect on your experience. Was it positive, negative, ehhhh, frustrating, peaceful?
All of these reactions are normal and TOTALLY fine!
You are purifying yourself.... it's a lot of work. There's good days and bad days and everything in between.
The longer you stick with it the more you'll feel the effects.
Also, repeating actual "I Am" mantras throughout the day is awesome.
Like a pick-me-up and common ground for bringing it back to your center.
So, what do y'all think? Think this "I am that I am" is the real deal?
Comment below, discuss, dispute, chat, whatever you feel like doing with me, but let's converse and create a space of love, acceptance and healing.
What'd you say?!
