Where do you feel indebted?
Notice I asked where you “feel” and not where you are indebted. Feelings are multifaceted. Whether emotional feelings or physical feelings, they shine the light onto whatever needs our attention.
Feelings are a great detector of what needs to be shifted, dis-integrated, or released. And those feelings often make us feel trapped.
The downside comes when feelings are ignored, or worse, identified and then neglected in attempt to make them not true. When feelings are squelched, they are like fertilized weeds that grow double or triple in size and in half the time. It’s best to handle them as they come up, and to not hold onto them as if they are a hero’s badge of honor.
Feelings are meant to be fluid, not held onto, or tightly stuffed into the recesses of the mind or body.
It’s important to look at where you feel indebted because you wouldn’t have the feelings if they weren’t there to signal you to pay attention, to take action, to change something.
But sometimes, it’s the feelings themselves that are calling to be released. This happens when they are no longer relevant, yet have somehow become a habitual way of perspective.
In other words, when you have a fresh feeling, you now recognize there is something there to be looked at, and handled, effectively releasing that feeling when whatever it was is taken care of.
But if you are experiencing the same low-grade feelings over a period of time, such as anxiety, fear, sorrow, doubt, depression, anger, or chronic physical pain, that’s a clear sign of habitual feelings that have taken root like those weeds we talked about….
So back the original question of “where do you feel indebted.” It’s asked because if you are harboring feelings either consciously or subconsciously around debt, you are blocking the flow of abundance in love, money, creativity, opportunity, health, joy, expansion, and in a word, life.
- You were never meant to live small
- You were never meant to live in lack
- You were never meant to live in-debted to anyone or in any way
- You were never meant to live with feelings of doubt
- You were never meant to live with feelings that don’t make you feel fabulous
- You were meant to thrive
It’s Thrive Time!
Explore ways in which you may be damming the flow of abundance. And then learn ways to open up to receiving the abundance that you desire and deserve.
By the way, debt can be subtle and may show up as a means of “getting even” with someone. It can be a remnant left when you were hurt.
Maybe you have a “debt to pay” to an ex.
Maybe you have “a score to even.”
This is still indebtedness, and it stops abundance.
Start by making a list of all the places in which you feel indebted. As you make this list, notice how thinking about indebtedness shows up as physical feelings in your body.
Where do you hold the feelings?
Look at the physical feeling in your mind’s eye, and describe it’s size, texture, color, and any other characteristics you can “see.”
Just notice, without judging it as “good” or “bad.” Simply notice.
We cannot change what we cannot see, so even if this feels ridiculous, do it anyway.
Maybe you owe someone money, or maybe you owe a debt of gratitude.
Gratitude is a magnetizer, so express gratefulness for all that blesses you and watch more come to you for which to be thankful.
NOTHING breaks through stuck energies such as depression,
self-doubt, lack and scarcity more effectively than does gratitude!
Once your list is complete, notice the emotional charge each “debt” holds. In other words, notice how your emotions are connected with the list of individual debts.
What do you get for holding on?
Here’s a BIG bonus secret for your self-love toolbox:
You get something for holding onto the feeling or you wouldn’t be holding on.
Identify what you get for, as example, holding onto the anger at an ex.
Maybe you get to feel pity, or you get camaraderie with friends when you re-tell the stories of how you were “done wrong.”
Maybe you are living in true financial debt. In that case, identify what you get from being in this state.
You may want to laugh out loud or scream at the idea that you get something from scarcity and lack, but I promise you would NOT be in that state if you didn’t get something from it. Dig deep for the truth.
Maybe you get to feel like a victim. Victims get a free pass at life, don’t they. Victims don’t have to live up to anyone’s standard. But it’s not a very rewarding way to live.
Being in any state of being, is a choice that has alternatives. If you don’t like it, find the rewards for being in that state, and what you’ll find is that you have held onto a feeling for so long that it has become a way of being.
Make the list of ways you are feeling indebted, to others and to yourself.
Find the rewards for holding onto the feelings. (There ARE rewards)
Decide what you will and will not tolerate.
Forgive all others.
Release with love and gratitude, all that no longer suits you.
Feel the freedom and express gratitude once again for all that blesses you.
Keep your focus on the blessings.
You know that list you just created? When you are done with it, burn it. Allow the smoke to take away all the indebtedness. Replace it with a gratitude practice.
