Many of us can feel we are unsupported, or no one listens to us or left out. These can be some of the stories we live by and so we interpret life through the lens of these stories. This means I expect no support or not to be listened to or to be left out or whatever the story is that I tell myself. I see these things where others wouldn’t.
It is so important to get to know the stories you tell yourself because what you expect, you look for and you attract. What you focus on increases. This is a Law of the Universe.
So let’s turn it all around and see these stories from another angle altogether. When you feel unsupported the experience is telling you that you are not supporting yourself. The healing of this pattern of suffering will come when you see this and take it on – when you recognise that the experience of support starts from within you.
You support yourself when you choose to love yourself and appreciate yourself and your giftedness – all you are and all you bring. You support yourself when you believe in yourself, in the love, power and wisdom within you and live from this. You support yourself by giving time to listening to yourself with your journal – making space in your life for going within and listening to what’s going on for you. You support yourself when you recognise the Soul within you and all you have to give and give it, share it in the world.
If I believe no one listens to me the healing will come when I begin to listen to myself and to that “still small voice within” – when I make the journey to the within and find my true Self.
If I see myself as left out, overlooked, then I can heal this through recognising that this is just a story I tell myself because of earlier experiences in my life [our stories are generally related to early experiences in life]. Now I don’t need to be imprisoned by this story any longer and I can find healing through recognising how I leave myself out.
