Some of our recent reflections at the barre: to not only gain flexibility, strength and length in our bodies, but also in our thought life 🙂
The meaning you attach to a situation is more powerful than the situation itself. – Lance Wallnau
For example, you know, “I can’ts” aren’t just “I can’ts.” They’re “I can’t” because… open inner dialogue: (“such and such happened”; or “so and so said this to me years ago”; or “they say such and such”; or “I don’t deserve it”; or “I don’t think I’m good enough”; or “will I be accepted?” or simply “I don’t want to”). Close inner dialogue. The last one is easy to deal with it. It’s not even a meaning. If you don’t want to, you won’t and you should just say that instead of “I can’t.”
But the other stuff can really create a reality in spite of actuality (truth). And one’s life, abilities and receptiveness becomes a positive or negative result of the inner dialogue that played on the inside after a situation played out.
May we develop a focus to reassess our past meanings; and apply meanings and interpretations to our present circumstances that will add health to our lives and the lives of those we relate with.
