Have you ever wanted to do or try something, but fear, doubt and limiting beliefs have stopped you?
Have you ever been curious about something, but you ran with the following stories? .
“I can’t. I’m not ready. I’m too old. I’m too young. It’s too late. I don’t have time. I’m not creative, musical, talented… I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH.”
The only limits are those the mind perceives. But what if they aren’t true? What if you are limitless?
I play the Native American Flute in my Yin classes, women’s circles and workshops, and am also learning the RAV drum. I’ve been playing flute for about 10 months. Before that, I’ve never properly played a musical instrument. I had limiting beliefs, the main one being “I’m not musical.”
Walking the yoga and conscious living path has reconnected me with sound in a BIG WAY. I found myself deeply drawn to the flute for a long time – it just resonated and felt so familiar… like a remembering. I had many prior healing experiences through sound. It also just felt so good and evoked a lot of joy!
One day I decided, I want to play music. I want to move, touch and help others heal through sound. Then, my flute journey began…
Yes, there was lack of confidence. Yes there are limiting beliefs at times that I pretty quickly push through. I surprised myself how far I’ve come in such a short time. Even in this “surprising myself” is a kind of conditioned belief, that I did not think I could do something like this. But I’ve let a lot of that go, and I play every chance I get!
How did I get here? I did the inner work and continue to do the work (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual). Also, practice, practice, practice. Keep showing up. More practice, even when you think you sound like crap, that the basics are boring or it seems too hard. Don’t buy into the BS stories that you can’t or you’re not good enough, because they are NOT TRUE.
Moral of the story… You can do anything you want to. You can be anything you want to.
As long as you are breathing, you are alive. As long as you are alive, anything is possible. Remember that. .
YOU ARE LIMITLESS. Remember that too 😊
