Yesterday I was ‘invited’ to spend some time being aware of the way (ok – ways!) I make myself wrong.
This is not a comfortable exercise.
Not because it’s not true. I know it’s true. I know I make myself wrong. I know it’s a core belief system for me. It’s not the first time I’ve worked with a coach or guide or teacher who has brought me to this point of awareness.
And because it’s uncomfortable I’m squirming in the muck of it. I don’t like seeing how I make myself wrong. I feel pissy and irritated and want to grouse to my teacher and spread some of the muck around.
But during my Conversations on Mastery call today with Gloria Boysal we talked about acceptance as a part of mastery. (You can find the recording here.)
Accepting myself for the ways I make myself wrong. Ugh.
Accepting of the irritation and distaste of doing so. Muck.
There is value in the muck. It is what is true at this moment. Being in the muck is still being in mastery. Because for me it is upward movement – as Gloria reminded me. Being in the muck is far better than making myself wrong.
And it’s only a short-lived stop on the journey to a new, more expanded core belief than the one I have now.
So for now I’ll be ok with the muck.
Join me for my next Conversation on Mastery on Thursday, June 19 at 1:30 pm. I’ll be exploring more on mastery with Lauren Johnston.
Lauren and I have worked together for a long time and she has made some huge leaps in her business. She has a wonderful way of hearing through your story right to the core issue and then helps shift you into alignment with what you desire.
