Dear sweet listeners:
I was hanging out on my patio earlier today thinking about why I have spent these last few decades working on negative core beliefs – ideas like “I'm not good enough, I can't do it, there is something wrong with me, it's my fault or it's your fault.” I have always been a rather deep, soul penetrating kind of gal. (my sign is Scorpio). I believe the reason I've been called to delve into these historical and sometimes debilitating beliefs is because if we can free ourselves from within the core, every part of our life works better.
Our egos are made up of our core beliefs. If we try to supress them, they get stronger. Acceptance is what heals them. When forgiveness touches a core belief, they melt.
Here's what happens when one's core beliefs are integrated (not perfectly, but just layer by layer and in this particular moment.)
When I KNOW I AM GOOD ENOUGH
My interests expand. Current new interests are classical music, kayaking and bird watching. Who knew I would love these things?
My relationships expand. Every friendship is more mutual, my marriage is more fun and has more depth, it's easy to be kind to every single person I meet.I don't have to try so hard. I can work less while still producing work I am proud of and can offer enthusiastically to potential students. I am happy to be paid well for my work.
My compassion grows. I see how most humans are unconsciously stuck in their 'not good enough spell.' When I am able to step out of my own spell, I hold space for their transformation. I see others as totally good enough.
I can be happy about my body, wear what I love, go dancing without being concerned that everyone is watching me on the dance floor. I just started giving myself full body massages the other day – I hadn't thought of that before. My body loves this new idea.
The list is longer, but you get my drift. If you'd like to play more with the idea of working with and through your core beliefs, one option would be to join us at the first conference call virtual retreat on October 24. Details follow.

Knowing we are ENOUGH, even if we forget it l00,000 times,
“You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck.” Rumi
