Inner Child

Breaking Free

I'm really excited about sharing some ideas with you, in this lesson in three that follow, about escaping the family trap. Everything depends upon our conception of ourselves. And the problems that America and that the world has today is nothing more than the result of what collectively we believe about ourselves. We simply cannot change our individual or our collective experience, until we come to change how we think about ourselves.  As individuals, every choice that you have ever made in your life or ever shall make in your life depends on what you believe about, you cannot outperform the level of your self-esteem.

The Rules

1.    Everything depends upon our conception (understand, view) of ourselves.
2.    Every choice that you have ever made in your life or ever shall make in your life depends on what you believe about, you cannot outperform the level of your self-esteem. 
3.    And what you believe about yourself will come back to you 1000 times in 1000 way.
4.    And most of the time, the important things that happen to us come out of what that child still believes in.
5.    Your belief about yourself, happens moment by moment. And there is no other law that can cancel that.
6.    If I can explain it a little more succinctly, every infant is born with a deep need to belong.
7.    Every time everyone were born with it, it's a matter of thing you haven't met, the need to belong is the first basic and most powerful of the human need. And there's a good reason why it's true.
8.    We really do belong not just of the state in which we live, we are citizens of the universe, you're a child of the universe, you really do belong, you've always belonged.
9.    The basic need to belong, is nearly as strong as the instinct for survival and comes fixed almost immediately on the mother and naturally, it would become fixed on the mother's represents the emotional nature and who is the nurturer.
10.   A child will try very hard to live up to his or her family's rule. At least at first, the need to belong is so compelling that, then, we will go along with almost anything that's happening there, so that we will belong. But some problems develop along the way because we find out the Little Kingdom in which we were born, not so well-adjusted.
11.    When you were a child, looking around your family, you often amaze that they didn't know any better than they knew. I mean, you were four years old, and you knew better than the adults did.
12.    You think that did not confuse you at first, we were confused by the inconsistent that were there. 
13.    And so, we faced the levels choice of violating our judgment and our integrity by complying or being punished and rejected in order for refusing to comply.
14.    We went through a long period of being manipulated, and then coming to manipulate and being dishonest.
15.    People with low self-worth make rules that shape new little people with low self-worth.
16.    A low self-esteem family is going to have rules that will guarantee the continuation of their low self-esteem.
17.    And then everybody who comes along will have to play the rules in such a way that they too will have to adopt the low self-esteem, you have no choice. 
18.    And then we grow up and pass on that same low self-esteem to our children and people online saying if I ever get out of this place, you'll never get me back here.
19.    Listen to the fifth chapter of the book, Deuteronomy, eight verses, and it's the Lord God speaking to Moses, you shall not make for yourself a graven image.
20.    What it really means since the Bible is a psychological and emotional book is you should not make a graven image.
21.    You shall not have firmly fixed concepts in your mind, and you shall not come up with a belief system about things that become so rigid and so inflexible that you say that's the way it really is. So, you should not have graven images or concepts of yourself and of your life. Why not? You're a spiritual being living in a spiritual universe.
22.    And that you will stop growing into the authority that is in you and that you will constantly be reaching beyond yourself that you'll let your dreams and your aspirations, and your hopes be alive, that they will not die. 
23.    The major problem in your life has been that you let your dreams die. 
24.    You see, we carry our pictures of ourselves. And we carry our pictures of life forward into all that we do. And all that we create into the creative responsibilities that come to us, we carry these old pictures into what we call our world will go out into our world to change our world and carry the old pictures forward.
25.    The time has come to no longer let your desires, dreams die because you are still that child trying to make normal what was always dysfunctional.
26.    You are being called from your inner being to come home where you always belong and will always remain in the arms of love. Love liberates!

Loving Yourself

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem…it makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.”  Emmett Fox.
