One sentence can change your problem into a neutral circumstance, literally.
During a recent coaching session, my coach asked the following question:
“Do you want your circumstance (which was a person in this example) to choose your thoughts and pour that emotion into your body?”
It only took about a split second to answer that question, I absolutely knew I didn’t want to give that power to this person!
Let the heavens open because freedom from blame, resentment, guilt and a desire to “pay them back” disappeared in that moment. From this place, I was able to step into my more evolved self and decide how I wanted to feel, with intention.
It’s what I teach my clients every day and it is so much fun! I love the look of relief when a person realizes how to take their power back.
Let me fill you in with my story around what I was getting coached on, it’s possible my story might help you find relief in your own story.
Imagine a weekend being spent relaxing in a beautiful place, with the people you love.
I had gone into the weekend choosing love from my higher self and committing to really watching my mind around all things that could potentially cause a mental spin out.
You see even the people we love, and usually the ones we love the most, or are working on loving the most, can cause us to derail…wait, let me back up…THEY don’t cause us to derail.
No one can cause you to derail.
They do something, you have a thought about that something, it’s that thought that would cause you to derail.
Maybe one of these people were with me on this weekend, in this beautiful place 😉, now you see why I had my commitment to watching my thoughts.
Throughout my wonderful weekend, I allowed myself to self coach and really embrace every bit of what was happening.
I even went home with an overall sense of accomplishment and pride knowing I had managed to enjoy my time, not allowing other people’s actions to affect me how I showed up.
Fast forward a few days, sitting in a coffee shop, enjoying conversation with a friend. A friend who had participated in the relaxing weekend with me.
I had thoughts about how she was acting that made be feel a bit curious about what was happening for her, yet I allowed the thoughts to drift away .
But then the words came out, “I have something I want to share with you, something that has been bothering me.”
Sweats set in, blood pulls into my core, thoughts of what could possibly be wrong flood my mind.
Within minutes, while the story was being shared, my brain started bringing up thoughts that generated emotions of anger, unfairness, unworthiness, unlovability, resentment, regret, retaliation…🥵
All around a story of a conversation, about me.
My relaxing weekend was destroyed in an instant.
Sound at all familiar?
Funny thing is that I already had known that the third party person in the story probably felt the way they did. It wasn’t until it was said out loud to me, the confirmation of my suspicions, that I started to have thoughts that seemed like truths.
This my friends is where we get stung, when we see our thoughts as truths.
Old stories of this person, this person I had done so much work to come closer to loving, came flooding into my head.
All the old evidence that produced my old beliefs came right up to the surface.
The me prior to learning how to self coach, prior to hiring my own coach, prior to taking this work and sharing it with you, would have been a hot mess, still, much longer after the actual story occurred.
All resolved in one coaching session.
Put in the past, a non-issue, back to the work I had been doing on learning to love people that “hurt me”.
Moral of the story: It isn’t in our power to change others. When we try, and expect them to change so that we can feel love, we are the only ones who suffer.
You only have the power to control your own thoughts, so that you get the results that best serve you.
We get to choose either belief:
- The one that only hurts us which is that, “They treat us poorly.”
- The one that gives us freedom and allows them to be who they are, which might be something like, “They are treating themselves poorly.”
We can believe that we get to feel good, on purpose, and not allow someone else to choose our thoughts and feelings.
I love feeling good on purpose.
Leave the suffering at their doorstep, don’t let it in.
