Do you feel like time is your friend and there's plenty of it or do you constantly feel like you're rushing against the clock?
When I was first learning about emotional healing and energy medicine, one of my teachers told me I needed to "clear" my belief that "time was my enemy and I needed to constantly rush and fight with it." :/
***A "belief" or "limiting belief" is just a thought you've had over and over again that is now cemented in your mind as the way things are. These beliefs are how a lot of our lives are structured whether we realize it or not! Our brains consult our core belief system about everything to determine what different things mean and what's possible for us. This is why becoming aware of your deep "beliefs" and clearing the ones that are limiting is such a valuable practice!
I'm so glad she taught me that life could be different! Clearing this pattern of struggle with time has changed my life in so many ways.
If you think about it, time is really just a container for our priorities. When you change the way you look at it, it doesn't make sense to say "I don't have time for that." A more true statement is, "It's not a priority." Thinking of your day and commitments this way helps you to relax and structure things in a way that makes the most sense for what you're needing at any given time.
Of course everyone will set things up the way that works best depending on whatever phase of life they're in, so today I wanted to share a quick clearing exercise.
This technique is called the Temporal Tap and it works really well to clear limiting beliefs.
It's a simple way to calm the body's fight or flight stress response system while simultaneously addressing both sides of the brain.
To do this you start out by tapping up and over the left ear while making statements that sound like, "I am no longer believing _____." This works really well because it speaks to the left brain. The left side is logical and very reality based so it does best when we address things the way they currently are.
After tapping up and over the left ear, you use your right hand to tap up and over your right ear while making statements that sound like, "I am now choosing ____." This works really well because the right side of the brain is more creative and open to affirmations and new solutions and ideas.
Use the following process outlined below to clear and release limiting beliefs associated with stress and time running out. :)
Take some deep breaths after doing this process and catch yourself whenever you notice thoughts that sound like "I don't have time for that" or "There's never enough time for me or what I want to do."
When you notice the thought, "I don't have time for that" change it to "It's not a priority."
If you realize it is a priority and super important to you, take the time to figure out how to restructure things so your priorities and needs can be met. You'll feel so much happier and at peace because you'll finally be making time for what matters most to you rather than being pushed and pulled by others expectations or guilt and obligation.
