These Two…And YOU.
Success in anything isn’t really complicated. What’s complicated is the battle between the lower self and the higher self.
The lower self has… low self-esteem. And because we live in a lower dimension world, it has more of an advantage than it should. It’s more in the forefront, so to speak, even though it’s hiding on the lower levels inside of you.
It questions everything from a perspective of paranoia. It’s suspicious of the whole concept of success and definitely doesn’t want to try anything new.
A great way to tell if you are being guided by your lower self is to notice the resistance that comes up when a new idea or a new way of doing something is presented to you.
What happens within your body?
Do you feel some sort of physical alarm from within?
Does it feel like you are being asked to walk really really close to the edge of a cliff?
If any of these kinds of feelings surface you are being guided by your lower self.
Another way to tell if your lower self is sabotaging your success, is to see if you are constantly falling into the trap of immediate gratification.
Notice when you start saying things like, “Aw to hell with it, its Friday, I deserve a piece of cake, another drink, a cigarette, another…whatever.”
Before you know it you will be looking upon a hangover, a few extra pounds, or…whatever keeps getting in the way of having what you truly desire.
Your friends and family have lower selves too.
And their lower self really vibes with your lower self and together you have this sort of “pinky promise.” It's an unspoken vow that neither of you will stray very far. With this promise, you sit together on the phone, or on the couch, or at the table, anywhere except for on the edge of the cliff.
And because you are too afraid to leap (thanks to the grip of your lower self) you each cling to the chain of mediocrity that keeps your “pinky promise” intact.
But wait. What about the higher self?
She/He lives within you too. It’s that laid back part of you that would never force you to do anything. But, if you tap into it, it will provide the wind beneath your wings, just in case you get the courage to break the chains and leap off that cliff.
Your higher self knows YOU are capable.
The problem is, in order to fly you gotta let low thinking go.
