Uncovering The Truth About Your Limits

I was a bit stunned recently listening to someone I know giving someone else an angry 'lecture' on how this person didn't seem to get the limitations she was under in terms of her job and those she worked for.

The truth was she was feeling trapped and angry by what she saw as the limits of what was possible for her and was projecting her feelings around it onto the person who had "pushed that button" for her - not that she realised that. She was so sure she was right!

I forgot I used to think like that too, just seeing what I couldn't do rather than what I could do! Because it wasn't an issue for me any longer, I'd become blind to the fact that others still thought this way... (and actually thinking about it now I think I'm still thinking that way in some areas of my life even if on the surface I'm all about not feeling stuck or limited in anyway unless it is my choice). What a wake up call!

Are you thinking this way?

Do you get really frustrated with people at times?

Do you often feel that people don't 'get' you or your circumstances?

Do you feel trapped or stuck in your situation?

Are you so ready for a change, but can't see how that might be possible?

Or perhaps you feel pretty evolved, done your coaching or healing or mindset or similar training and feel like you 'get' it, you know you are 'responsible for your life' and whatever your situation, you know you 'created it'.

So how come you're still not fully expressing yourself? How come you're still playing small?

How come you're still looking at what everyone else is doing and either trying to copy them or beating yourself up for not being enough, not being as good as {...insert name(s)}?

How come you still feel challenged around money - you're not earning enough, they're charging too much?

I'm not suggesting you should have it all sorted... no one does, but what is key is to realise where you are feeling limited and to realise it's just your perspective.

If you want to break free of your limits and what holds you back you first need to acknowledge what is keeping you stuck.

Look at the image with this article. See the diamond. Imagine that represents the situation or circumstances limiting you. The 2 figures are both looking at the same set of circumstances (or situation). Because of each of their positions they each can only see one facet of that diamond accurately, so each figure experiences the circumstances completely differently.

Whatever is keeping you stuck or feeling limited, realise its just your perspective. It's just how it seems from where you are standing. If you take the time to move yourself around a bit, see things from different angles, feel into the different possibilities, listen for the truth of the circumstances possibly being different to what you are sure it is, you will begin to see that perhaps you are not as limited as you thought, that perhaps there is another route you can take to get what you want without coming up against these limits.

Although I do believe in 'doing the work' on ourselves I also know that it is possible to have instant change at times. This is possible when you become inspired (inspire = breath life into, the breath of God), however, it isn't possible to be truly inspired if you are committed to experiencing your challenges and attached to your limits. You need to be ready to let go of what you're holding on to, your excuses for playing small, feeling limited, feeling inadequate. You need to be willing to accept that you are loved, safe and have everything you need to be the gifted instrument of change that you were born to be.
