When people project their shit on you

The other day I had 2 people I interact with on a somewhat regular basis express their dissatisfaction with me. One of them did so pretty aggressively saying something like “wipe that smile off your face” (I smile a lot) and “it has to be your way or the highway”.

Now, we all have our (limiting) beliefs and views of our world and we differ in the extent of believing our (limiting) beliefs.

When we (strongly) believe certain beliefs we act from those beliefs.

It can happen that we meet people, interact with them, become friends, become lovers and they interact with us from those beliefs. This means that their view of you is (strongly) colored by their beliefs.

Those beliefs may entail certain ways of doing things, values, what’s allowed and what’s not. Because of those beliefs they might want you to act in a certain way, or be a certain way.

Walking through the valley of fear towards the oasis of universal truth

I can manifest amazing things. It feels as if life takes care of me at those moments. Everything falls into place and almost always in a different way than I imagined. But I always stay at a certain level of attraction/manifestation.

After manifestation, stagnation follows. And many times after stagnation, deterioration comes next. I always wondered how other people could attract and manifest the things I desire, like a successful business, while I’m not even able to attract consistent people to coach. It seems so hard to manifest my business, my coaching, while it lights me up inside, while I’m good at what I do.

And this leads me to my second lesson learned from the chapter “Foundation” by Derek Rydall (for more info about my journey inward, see this post).

How I fooled myself for over a decade. The strength of the ego and the beauty of universal truths.

I’m embarking on an inward journey because of my relationship with my business that I cannot seem to get off the ground. No matter what I do, how hard I work, it’s not working. Either it isn’t working because it’s not relevant for me or it isn’t working because my limiting beliefs are holding back the fruits of my labor.

As I’m working through “The Foundation” (first chapter of the book Emergence by Derek Rydall. See this post for more information about this journey) I read this sentence: “”The problem is, no matter what you try, as long as you’re coming from a place of fear and a feeling that you don’t already have what you need, nothing you do will ever get you what you want.”

We are not broken or incomplete. We are whole and everything there is is inside of us.

You don’t get what you want but what you are

How are you doing this gorgeous day?

It’s the beginning of an 8-week process I’m about the embark on. I’ve decided to work through the book of Derek Rydall  titled Emergence.

Recently I’ve been diving deeper within myself and I’ve learned that there are certain limiting beliefs I’m holding on to that are hindering me in becoming my best self.

For example, I’ve been working on setting up a business for years now. And it just doesn’t work. And trust me, I’m not that stupid 😉 nor lazy. If there’s one thing that I know that wasn’t supporting for my business was that I kept searching for the theme of my business. I didn’t really know what my business should be about. And that in itself is an indication that it’s not a right path for me at this moment.

Getting to know the real you and living consciously while working a day-time job

If you are new to Conscious Living with Carmen, first of all, welcome and thank you so much for joining.  Second, as an intro to this article, I started a day job at the beginning of April this year after respectively a couple of years working for myself and then being on welfare. This new job has turned my world around. I’ve been struggling with lack of sleep since then.

This experience, though, has helped me dive deeper into living consciously.
