How and Why We Disconnect From Ourselves
There are so many ways we disconnect from ourselves..from our higher self. Here are a few common ways we can disconnect. I’ll also share why we disconnect. Through awareness and understanding of why we do something, we can start to shift this and begin connecting with ourselves in powerful ways! Connecting to a power higher than ourselves is the best way to fulfill our passion and purpose in life. It’s pretty darn amazing how our higher self stands ready to guide us when we are ready. We disconnect by:
1. Allowing fear to drive our feelings and actions.
When fear shows up and rears its ugly head, we have three choices. We can deny it. We can stay stuck or move forward regardless. When you allow fear to drive things, you aren’t allowing your higher self to come shining through. When we live in fear, we aren’t able to experience joy. When we live in fear, we aren’t able to shine our light. We can only experience one thing at a time. Do you choose fear or joy/love?
2. Promoting bad habits.
Our habits are one of the most powerful things that dictates success of failure in life. Yes, habits are THAT powerful and that important. When we cultivate positive habits that lift us up, we are able to connect to that side of ourselves that is for our highest good. When you need to detox from technology, addiction, food, fears, procrastination, perfectionism, people-pleasing and such, you aren’t able to really create better, more life-affirming habits. One powerful way to create good habits is to develop a morning success ritual. A success ritual is a list of things you do every.single.day to clear your mind and get your day off to a good start. Writing in a gratitude journal, meditating, praying, tapping, reading, juicing, exercising, and the like are examples of a success ritual.
3. Staying busy by doing…
When we are constantly doing, doing, doing, going, going, going rather than BEing, we are disconnected from ourselves. Sometimes, we stay stuck in ‘busyness’ because we aren’t used to sitting with ourselves or we think we have to be doing something to be ‘worthy’. All of these ideas are false. Take time to just BE.. to sit with yourself. Spend time journaling, meditating, or sitting quietly with yourself. Then, you can ask Spirit a question and quietly listen for the answer. Spend more time BEing rather than DOing.
I don’t think we consciously push Spirit away or push our higher self away. I do think though that through fear, bad habits and staying busy, we subconsciously restrict ourselves. Perhaps on some level, we don’t feel worthy or deserving of all the blessings life has to offer. Either way, I recommend identifying where you may disconnect and create a plan to change this.
