There comes a time in our journey when we start to accept that maybe, just maybe I can do something different. When that happens, we get bombarded with negative and distracting thoughts. Thoughts so powerful, they can stop our journey and return us to the life of our past.
Why would we do this to ourselves?
Freud called it our Super-Ego, Canfield called it our Parent brain, and I call it a nasty lying parasite. It’s part of our psychic apparatus that recalls all of our historical events, cultural norms and teachings to remind us to stay between the lines, don’t take risks, and follow the crowd.
Don’t let your mind undermine your dream. Acknowledge the counterproductive thoughts, laugh at them, say “I know what you’re doing you little jerk” and continue on.
We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other people’s models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open. ~ Shakti Gawain
