Deserving Power + Unlearning Beliefs
My intention here on my blog is for those who come through to read about my unique story, and I do hope this helps or sparks understanding for our ever changing world.
I am ever so grateful and blessed to have gone through all the education and diverse environments my parents intentionally chose for me while growing up in a not so traditionally diverse country like Japan.
There is benefit for me to translate this content into Japanese for better access + dissemination, yet I personally resonate more with what I have to communicate when it is written in the English language. This concept is already part of what I want to share today.
I recently heard on a meditation talk that some individuals carry inherited trauma and behavioral traits from family or relatives and these can be traced up 7 generations! The power of blood relations is clearly apparent in this sense.
Are you doing "the work" to "clean house" or are you purposefully avoiding feeling a certain way because you are afraid...?
A safe assumption is that many will go through life without realizing their own individuality, and not letting themselves pinpoint what it is that makes them amazing and great. This is unfortunately due to social programming and the mind-chatter in our heads.
Funny that I am putting this online myself because I claim to be very independent, strong and a go-getter; yet many existing social expectations, discrimination, sexist and institutional structures do not necessarily encourage me to speak up. I'm laughing as I write this now, but I recently experienced that my past "taking a stand" behavior still (and most likely will never be processed) was not digested by the party involved, and this happened ages ago.
Success can be defined in many ways. It seems that the majority believe this cannot be shared if someone else is "already there" - but why can't we all encourage each other and live in abundance together?
Only you will block your growth because you think that you can't improve, or you blame external factors for your "failures".
I'm not necessarily a fan of Shakespeare, but this quote resonates with me these days:
"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." -- Think about that for a second.
Good luck y'all! Let's have fun and live life to the fullest.
