22 Feb Is it Possible to See Through the Lies That Frame Your Reality?
I was listening to an inspirational speaker today who appears to have created success in all aspects of his life. He used the metaphor of the Matrix for the human experience. What he said is that the Matrix is a web of lies pulled over our eyes about what is reality. He also said that we are pulling a web of lies over our own eyes and that this web of lies is what you tell yourself about what’s possible for you and for the world.
The solution according to this inspirational speaker is that you get to decide what your limitations are and that it’s a decision you can make. His challenge – “decide what you are going to believe about yourself today.”
Oh if only it were that easy.
Recognizing that you are believing lies that are shaping your reality of what is possible is step #1. It’s not an easy step because the lies feel like fact to you.
Let’s look at an example. I work with a lot of women who believe that men are smarter, or stronger, or better than women. They defer to a man’s point of view in a debate or a conversation. They abandon their incredible gifts in order to operate like a man. They feel less than, defeated, or even hopeless. Or they accept that this is their lot in life and make the best of it.
These beliefs are not necessarily at a conscious level. Someone may feel that these beliefs are truth even though consciously they know they are not.
Now, it’s not true that men are smarter than, stronger or better than women. It’s not, I promise you. And it’s not necessary to act like a man to be successful. In fact, a woman abandons herself and her beautiful gifts when she does
But if you look for evidence to prove that men are superior to women and that a woman has to act like a man to be successful, you WILL find evidence that it’s a truth. You may see that most corporations have men at the helm. You may see that most spiritual leaders are men. Heck, even God is a man.
All of this evidence may lead to a woman adopting this as a truth. And if that’s her truth, she will live her life in that reality.
But what if it were possible to discover whether that really is a truth? What if you could get to the root cause of that reality? What if underneath that reality is a fear that is stronger than your ability to make a decision to choose a different reality?
There are ways to discover the underlying cause of your belief that’s rooted in fear. It doesn’t have to be a painful process and you don’t have to stay in that fearful place forever.
That’s where the true magic lies.
I am keenly aware that the gift I have been blessed with is being a problem solver and I have cultivated that gift so I can give it back to the world. I was determined to figure out what was real and what wasn’t. My view of the world, my story, felt like a truth. And yet, I knew there was another way.
I’ve spent most of my life seeking. I’ve spent the last ten years studying, exploring, testing, and working through a process that works to get to the root causes of your version of reality and then provides you with the tools to access what is true and what is a lie. I’ve figured out how to combine energy work, a series of specific probing questions, better problem solving tools and habits and support in a way that will free you from the web of lies you are pulling over your own eyes.
Think about it. If you need to solve a problem, you need to use a tool that will solve the problem. Without effective tools to uncover the lies you believe and to release yourself from believing them, you will continue to experience “Groundhog Day.” A different day, the same reality.
Are there other tools that work? I’m sure there are and if you’ve found tools that work for you, I am thrilled for you.
But if you haven’t, I invite you to lean into whether you are willing to explore a process that will free you from these limiting beliefs once and for all so that you can make a decision about what you want to believe today.
One thing I know for sure, if it were that easy to choose a different reality, wouldn’t you have done it already?
I invite you to look at your life and see whether you can identify a lie that is framing your reality? If you were able to choose a different reality, what might your life be like?
