Do You Know and Believe You Are Enough?
This week I have been waking up and saying I am enough. I have it written on the mirror in my bathroom to remind me I am Enough and repeat it often during the day. Especially if I am beating up on myself or the inner critic has come out to play,’
When I allow my inner critic to move me from my heart to my head up comes the feelings of
not being enough
then not being good enough
looking outside for confirmation that supports all these negative thoughts and feelings
The list can go on and on………… you know those feelings?
For me they come when I don’t trust the whispers of my heart and start doubting myself. Then I listen to others and as happened this week I get stuck. Paralysis analysis steps in. Absolute confirmation for me that FOCUS is one of my words for 2016.
Why start a daily practice of repeating to yourself I am enough?
Inspired by my friend The Soul Speaker Anne Aleckson who posted this week about her morning ritual and shared her I am enough 100 day challenge.
Anne commented that her world was opening up and she as feeling more open to receiving and new opportunities. She shared the video that got her started on the daily practice.
Like Anne I watched it and was impressed and took it on half-heartedly. Then I went back to listen yesterday and I was inspired with the stories of change, often quite dramatic that came about when one started to use these simple but challenging 3 words. Watch or listen to the talk by Marisa Peer an unusual therapist fascinated by how the mind works.
The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity: “I’m Not Enough” by Marisa Peer
Marisa asks us to repeat:
I am enough
I am enough
I have always been enough
And now I know that I am enough
Everyone else knows it too
I will always be enough
This makes the unfamiliar, familiar.
The talk is empowering , Marisa is funny and shares stories of inspiration that have come from writing I Am Enough in lipstick on a mirror.
Yesterday at the beach I wrote the words I am enough in the sand and then enveloped the words in a big heart. Believing you are enough boosts your self-esteem and then you look inside, trust and listen to the whispers of your heart. This leads to building your self-love too.
Please share in the comments what you do maybe daily that is allowing you to really believe you are enough.
all my love
Listening to the whispers of your heart brings ♥More FUN ♥ More LOVE ♥ More ABUNDANCE ♥ Vibrant HEALTH ♥
