I thought with Grace's question on How do we simply love ourselves? to be inspired to the question How can we feel respectable while going through hard times?
First I want to state honesty, honor and keeping my word are a top priority with me.
I just tried using a credit card for my Karate business that I was sure was good and it was declined. I have been listening to Mp3s on reprogramming our brains to expect abundance and feeling better but when something like this comes in my face it throws out all that reprogramming!
Saying declined is like saying....
We don't trust you.
You are not to be trusted.
You have no honor.
We wouldn't loan you a red cent!
Get out of here you bum! Unless you have come to pay us!
You are not worthy of credit.
You can't take care of your self.
You are crooked.
You don't pay what you owe.
Pay up or get out of here.
Don't come looking for help from us.
You don't deserve credit.
You are not respectable.
You are a liar and cheat.
You broke your word.
You are unworthy of respect.
All of this stuff plays over and over in your head because you can't afford to pay up what you Borrowed and were expected to Pay back! So how can you still respect yourself when you are going through hard times? When you are trying to change things but feel like what is the use you feel overwhelmed. I want to get all of my credit paid off, I once had one of the highest credit ratings it was like 794 it was way up there! Well that was then this is now.
That sounds like a lot of limiting beliefs to me. I suggest you do the Two Hands Touching with some statements from this liston my experiment page. For example do THT then say, "I have a wonderful work, in a wonderful way, I give wonderful service, for wonderful pay!" then do THT again. Do this every day for the same affirmations until you feel good about them, then do different ones. Do THT any time throughout the day if you feel stress, anxious, fear, anything you don't like. If you do this, it will turn things around. :)
Honor is an illusion. The only thing we have is Now. Also remember, there is enough for everyone, we only have to believe it.
We create what I will call avatars that we create and use to interact with eachother. We create these avatars with our beliefs of who we think we are and who we think other people think we are. We have different avatars that interract with the avatars we create of other people based on our beliefs about who we think they are and how we think they think of us. Judgement is huge in creating these avatars. These avatars are not us, nor the other people.
The less we judge ourselves and others, the less avatars we use to interract. Enlightenment would be the ability to see ourselves and others as divine rays of light, absent of any avatars.
Honor is simply a trait that we give to our avatar, it is part of the illusion.
Wade, you already know what I think, but I will write it here for all to read:
You are NOT your finances.
I am sorry that you (we) are having tough times, but I think that you are showing that you really have always defined yourself mainly by your "pot of gold" and little else. Perhaps this is a time for you to really dig in, and find out who you are- You are much, much more than a bank balance!
All those negative statements you listed are so untrue about you, but you feel them, so I will honor your feelings. But really think it is time for you to tear up all your "Get-Rich-Quick" books and dig in and find out who you are besides your bills, or lack thereof.
You are loving.
You are kind and generous to a fault.
You are a worthy human being.
You are a respected Karate Sensei.
You are an expert at al the old-time manifesting people like Shinn and others- I envy you for your knowledge.
You are handsome and sexy.
You are deeply loved by your parents- something I do not enjoy.
You have a nice person to share your troubles with and who loves you very much. There are people here who would much rather have your bills just to have someone to hug and kiss.
Why can't you see how blessed you are?
Get off the pity pot. You are getting a ring around your butt.
♥♥♥♥ Your Jai
