Fear, Guilt, Anger, Hurt Feelings and Unworthiness are emotions most of us wish to avoid.
However, what if these feelings were actually a GIFT?
What if we could transmute these feelings into something positive, and use them as magnificent TOOLS?
AND what if there was something wonderful in us that gave us those feelings?
I for instance, had a ground breaking experience with this this week. I have seen an obvious pattern in my life of PILING too much on my plate. I say, “Ya, I can do that! Bring it on! I want that!” Then I feel a bit of UNWORTHINESS for not being able to get it all accomplished.
So how can I use unworthiness as a tool to advance my Definite Major Purpose in life?
My Masterkeys lesson?…
1. Overfilling your plate is ego driven (and I thought I was just high energy and ambitious…wink) and a DISTRACTION to avoid finding your purpose… ahhhhh -the very thing I am working for- ironic.
2.We ARE worthy of having anything we want , just not worthy of having everything we want. What?? Yes!! Life is just not long enough for everything that looks good.
So what does a Red personality like me do about it?
3. ACCEPT that everything that is not part of my Definite Major Purpose is NOT MINE….hmmm- that’s a big one.
4. USE THE EMOTION OF UNWORTHINESS and transmute it to HUMILITY. Then have the humility to know what I should do in life and let go of the rest- another big one.
Seems simple, but when it is real and experiential- you are digging deep.
I am grateful to have learned this week through the Masterkeys. This is just the tip of the iceberg!!
One more little nugget:
Guilt shows you have a moral compass. It is also is a gift to show us that we already KNOW what to do- we just not doing it. Pray and ask “What am I afraid of?”
