Internet tells me that every March 1 is WORLD Compliment day!
I did go and Google it and love that we have celebration days for everything even for things like popcorn and margaritas! GIVE ME A REASON TO CELEBRATE and I WILL BE THERE! So this World Compliment Day got me thinking – Do people realize that they have limiting beliefs that manifest when receiving compliments. The best way to know if you have this belief is to pay attention to how you respond to a compliment – “Hey, Katie, you are so good with words!” and you respond “Well actually in high school I would always do so bad in English that I never thought I was good with words?” WHAT? That is a true indicator that a limiting belief exists! If you are new to the term limiting belief – let’s define what that is…
WHAT IS A LIMITING BELIEF?
Limiting Belief – a lie that someone told us about ourselves and we believed it at some point in our life or a story that our mind made up to protect us from getting hurt. At some point in our lives, we had an experience which our brain decided to adopt as truth and we began to live our life with that lie being our compass! But we are not tied to those beliefs we can always change our mind and our course if it doesn’t serve us. We are not practicing self-love if we are dismissing the compliment due to our limiting belief.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE OF OUR LIMITING BELIEFS?
It’s so empowering to realize what’s holding us back. Yes, that means we need to change our mindset and do some personal growth but it also means that we are peeling another layer to operate from the heart and create a life full of purpose! It ties right into self-love! When you practice self-love and someone gives you a compliment it has to feel radiating, put a smile on your face, make you think “I am so grateful for this acknowledgment of my talent, dress, family etc. that I am proud of”
HOW TO RELEASE LIMITING BELIEFS?
Step 1: Realize why you can’t except the compliment?
Step 2: What created the limiting belief that prevents you from accepting a compliment?
Step 3: Ask yourself – Is that the belief I want to keep?
If the answer is NO, create a positive affirmation that shifts your mindset from that limiting belief. Choose an oil that helps you tie the feeling that you want to move towards! Yoga poses and chakras will depend on the limiting belief that you will uncover. Feel free to reach out to me to help you figure out what poses and chakras to focus on!
So I leave you with this – “You are beautiful! You are unique! You are enough!” Accept this as your truth! Smile, radiate, be in complete joy of feeling so much self-love for yourself!
