We’ve got to fall for some lies to get to our truth.
The Lie of Inadequacy. It goes like this…“You were born defective, not good enough, flawed.” nooo! Erase erase. Blow it UP.
This big lie could translate to, “You were born a girl…so you’re inadequate.” or it might mean that you incarnated into the wrong caste, or the wrong shade of skin, or you Love someone who you apparently should not love—who shouldn’t be loved?
The Lie of Inadequacy is EVERYWHERE, it’s how advertisers make their money, the patriarchal mindset—which BTW affects EVERYONE, religious doctrines gone very wrong. Or we can INHERIT the lie—it’s like a genetic story of being unworthy that gets baked into our DNA, generation after generation.
What’s it like to go through life thinking you’re not quite enough—defective, flawed? Most of us know EXACTLY how that feels. And what happens when we believe the lie? I’ll tell you what happens…We become chronic self-fixers, habitual strivers, always trying to get on the right side of Universal law.
Maybe you’re just kind of weird in a world that rewards “normal”. Too woo woo in a very linear, narrow-sighted culture. You’re doing all the good, metaphysical, motivational work but you feel like there’s a veil between you and what you really want to manifest, and if you get it, you don’t get to keep it. Erase erase.
That’s the subtle but very toxic Lie of Inadequacy telling you that you’re here and what you want is way over there, on the “right” side of it all.
Listen. You were born important. You are a blessing of original goodness. And you are very Powerful.
Love and FULFILLMENT are your birthright…just because you showed up here—in all your glory and with all of your questions and cravings and beauty. You’re kind. I know you are.
