How often have you said to yourself: “I really need to do xyz” or “I really need to stop doing xyz.” Speaking for myself, thousands of times. The “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts” put pressure on us and imply that yucky feeling word…guilt.
Each and every time we think and/or say those words we add to the negative expression of ourselves. That need to do or don’t do, the very thought of those words causes negative feelings in the body. In that moment, there’s an immediate feeling of not being who or what we are supposed to be, whether we’ve set the expectation or someone else has.
The thing is, we are always everything we are supposed to be all the time, in every moment. There is never a second that goes by where we are anything but.
It’s about changing the energy around the “need” to do something to one of gentle intention, the feeling of having a choice about the matter rather than a pressure to accomplish whatever it is you’re wanting to accomplish. Sometimes we may not have a “choice”, it just has to be done. That’s fine, but take that energy you’d usually create as pressure to do it and soften it, love it and allow it to flow through you and into what it is you’re doing. That is acting out the vibration of love.
So, go wash those dishes, get ready for work, get that degree and take the time to change your thoughts and feelings around how you do those things. It’s your choice. Much Love xox
