Oh my! am I in a state of awe of how wonderfully the Universe works when I am willing to see the changes that will make my life better!
I was reviewing the past Empowerment Insights and I saw how beautifully the dots are being connected to bring me more awareness about how I can truly love myself more and how these added insights (even if they aren't new) show up with more clarity and make more sense to me than ever before.
I am also amazed at the flow and ease from which this all occurs, just by my own willingness and desire to be all of ME.
This week was no different...
After a week of focusing on not making excuses, I learned some interesting things that bring forth this week's insight.
Making excuses is one of the ways that I validate the belief. "I am not worthy to have/be/do..." So I make an excuse so that I don't receive that which I am not worthy of. UGH! (I share another insight I received in the follow up section below).
I know this unworthiness belief is getting old and yet, here is another sign that I still have some of it sticking to me.
This led me to my next insight which is also connected to unworthiness-
Asking for help.
This insight weaves a complex web so cleverly disguised that it would make me think that the reason I don't ask for help is because
I am so dependent, so strong, so capable.
So I asked, "Is that true? Do I really believe that about myself when it comes to seeking assistance?"
And the answer is - Absolutely NOT!
This is not to say that I don't have strength, can't be dependent or capable, but that it has nothing to do with asking for help.
Here's the kicker (almost embarrassed to share this)-
For me asking for help, is more that I don't truly feel worthy of receiving someone's help. And while there is an element of feeling weak and less than by asking for help (afterall, it is better to give than to receive) I have to be honest in acknowledging that I do have a lack of self-worth attached to asking for help.
Great! Now that I have acknowledged it what do I do with that?
Ask more questions and make some new choices. (see the tools below)
I know from working with clients that I am not the only one out there that struggles with asking for help. I even dedicated a chapter to it for parents in my book.
If you know you resist asking for help, I wonder what the true reason might be. What would you discover if you were willing to ask?
Believing in you!
