“We cannot expect a different response other than the frequency we are giving out”
One of the greatest gifts and joys we can to give to each other is to accept and include. This does not imply that we remain people pleasers or become door mats. Simply, it is to explore what is already alive in our hearts and sharing it. What is in your heart?
When we learn — teach, as Maya Angelou often said. I believe when we share of ourselves, we teach.
I’ve learned, often times the hard way, that I cannot return home to fix my difficult childhood. I could not fix it then and I cannot fix it now. Nor can we fix any other person, place or thing in life. That said, we can transform it. Auto-correct, if you will, our own frequency. By frequency I offer the suggestion of inner exploration — a shift in perception.
In present moment our old beliefs and responses no longer work in problem resolution. If we are feeling mostly negative thoughts like fear, anger, embarrassment, hurt and so on, our view of the world will become that. One way I shift perception — change my frequency, is by changing the words I have floating around in my mind. Transforming words like “I’m not good enough” into “I AM enough, I AM just like you, and I AM the same love” becomes the practice. This is the journey into our heart. Those old words “I’m not good enough, I’m not like them” so on and so forth, are just old beliefs. The truth is, the old belief isn’t true! They were never ours to begin with — they were taught to us.
Easier said than done, I know. It is difficult work to see and even harder to unlearn. But possible. The shift in perception aligns me with the present moment, showing me that there is another way to see this situation. I can now say I wish to act from my heart. I can now say, I’ll make a conscious choice to put into practice my true belief that inclusion of my global colleagues — my co-inhabitants on this big blue-green planet will benefit humanity. Now, I can give a new voice to an old wound in a new way so my inner child speaks from safety in a new voice.
Practicing this allows us to live from personal power — our hearts. It allows other people to have their own experiences. And since we learn through experiencing, it affords us the opportunity to act with empathy and compassion. We can — then expect a different response. A reciprocal overflowing exchange of universal connection. Namaste.
