Dealing with Kickback
Let’s talk about kickback. You’ve just had a great session, class, or meditation and you feel brand new and the next day, bam, it’s like all the old yuck came back. What just happened?! Your first thought is – “Oh my God it’s all back, nothing has changed!” Before you freak out, no, it’s actually your negative ego trying to get you to reenter the very thing you just worked to clear.
First, forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for anywhere that that old habit/pattern/addiction, etc. had such a hold on you that it feels like it will always be there. Say, as often as is needed, “I forgive myself for this pattern/way of thinking, etc., and I release it. I forgive myself and I am willing to be new. I am willing to see things differently.” Forgiveness is key. You can’t change without it.
Next, stretch your image. Can you imagine yourself new? Can you see yourself as healed, different, and more vibrant? If you can’t, the old can more easily creep in. So take a moment and feel new feelings, think new thoughts, allow yourself to be different. Even if you don’t quite know what that looks like, pretend. Use your imagination. What would you look and feel like without the issue? Maybe you simply look brighter and happier. Maybe you would feel a sense of freedom and joy. Allow whatever comes to you to be the very image and feelings that you need.
Then, final step, feel and see that new image of yourself stretching to hold the success that you just created and making room for all the success that is coming.
Do this every time you make changes and not only will they hold, but the changes will grow exponentially, bringing you greater and grander success.
