Every conflict... Every illness... Every moment of discomfort...
Is a measure of what you believe you deserve.
In their book, Conscious Loving: The Journey to Co-commitment, Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks, PhDs, explain that every person has an internal barometer of how many good feelings they can handle. Once that point is reached, we will seek conflict, illness, anxiety and discomfort. Why? Because we each are working within the paradigm of what we think we deserve.
Unfortunately, many of us have accepted the belief that feeling good is a privilege to be earned instead of a right to be accepted.
One more time, for the cheap seats, feeling good is your Divine birth right.
If you're not feeling good, (I say this to myself as well), it is because, unconsciously, that is what you feel you deserve. Every time your life is going incredibly well, your mind will find a way to slow the flow of positive energy.
The goal should then be to expand your capacity to feel good. This process takes courage and awareness, but start here:
Give yourself permission to feel good.
