In fact, you have always been enough. You have always had everything you need right there inside of you to be whatever you needed to be in every moment. There was not ever a time when you were not enough.
Yet for most, if not all, of us, we have been trained, conditioned and told that we are not enough, that we are never enough. Every television commercial, magazine advertisement or pop up ad screams to us about our not-enoughness. Whether it is the new car we just have to have, the latest iPhone or the bright, shiny object of the day, we are constantly being told, “buy me and your life will be perfect!”
On some level, we know that nothing outside of us can make our lives perfect aka make us happy. Happiness is, and always has been, an inside job but many of us would rather not believe that. If you have ever done online dating you know that there are thousands of people ready to recruit you to make them happy. And if you have ever taken the bait you know that you have never been successful and can never be successful at making an unhappy person happy.
So, why do we look for happiness outside of ourselves when we know that we are the only ones who can do it? It is the exact same reason why we buy what the advertisements tell us to buy. Remember that if the ads did not work, either there would not be a Super Bowl or the game would be over before the pizza delivery man made it to our street.
So, what can we do about this and how do we become enough to create our own happiness? Being enough is a belief. You either believe it or you don’t. If you believe it, you choose it and have it. From there, you can make the choice to be happy. It sounds so simple. There must be more to it than that. It is simple. But it may not be easy. And there is the rub.
Becoming enough is both a decision and a process. It starts with the realization that each of us is inherently enough. There is nothing to buy and no mountaintop guru to have to find.
Now, on to the process. The process is a daily, moment by moment clearing out of all the messages that bombard us and tempt us to go back on our belief and decision. The clearing can be done through the use of a clearing statement. A clearing statement is a sentence or sentences in which you consciously decide to clear your mind and your consciousness of the messages that do not support your being enough. You can use your own if you have one or make one up for yourself. Or you can use the following example:
I destroy and uncreate any and all messages that I have received, both consciously and subconsciously, that tell me that I am not enough. I know that I AM enough and have always been enough. I am whole and complete and lack nothing. And so it is.
You can use this as often as you need but can start with once a day and work up from there. I cannot promise that this will change your life. Only you can change your life and only when you are ready. So, if you are ready this will help.
