Creating from old phrases

Thinking with balloonsWhile getting ready for my day several of the old sayings that I have heard for a good portion of my life kept wandering through my mind. Each of these sayings carried a belief along with the energy that was not life supporting. I thought about how these statements had created similar outcomes when I experienced various situations.  This brought me to the thought that it was now time to change the meaning behind the phrases.  By doing this the energy around these phrases would now have the potential to create in a new way.

This is a very short list of old phrases that have been a creating force in my life. There have been many others that were handed off to me and I accepted as truth. Why wouldn’t I accept these as truth? I had heard them over and over again. Each time I heard them it seemed that an occurrence would happen that proved them true. It wasn’t until much later in life I realized that I was doing what those who handed these phrases to me had done. As I/we believed them we filled the words with the power and energy to create in our life.  From these words we projected forward an outcome that went in line with what had been believed to be true.

With the phrases still out there holding an energy pattern I decided to change what they represent to me. By doing this the energy of the words is no longer creating in the same way allowing a new outcome.   I prefer to allow these words to support me. What has been handed to you that you have accepted as truth because it has been said time and time again? Isn’t it time to question these and of course change the meaning they have for you?

1. “The quiet before the storm”
If there is a calm time in my life I have to prepare for a storm? Really?
“Today I appreciate the calm in my life allowing it to stretch forward while I enjoy every moment of it. I also appreciate the storms of my life. I allow the storms to clear away what does not support me allowing the calm to reappear to be enjoyed even more.”

2. “Waiting for the next shoe to drop.”
When that shoe drops I have a new pair of shoes that fit better than the old pair which allows me to walk on a path that supports me.

3. “If it’s too good to be true, it usually is.”
When did we begin to believe in limiting the good in our lives? Why does the good signal a negative? I decided to change this to, “If it feels too good to be true, it is only because prior to this moment I didn’t know that goodness existed. I am now open to receive the good in all things.”
