The scene was of a woman woman waking up to a brilliant sunshine. She rolls out of bed and wanders up a set of stairs with a brass hand rail - and steps out onto the deck of a beautiful sailboat. You know how the scene plays out after that. And of course the commercial is a promotion for a lottery. She was living her dream after winning a lottery!
At first I was intrigued at the scene - wondering what the commercial was about. Then, when I realized it was for a lottery, I shook my head and involuntarily the thought popped into my head "I don't want to win a lottery".
How interesting I muttered, as I realized that it was likely a message that had surfaced from my subconscious.
I thought about this interesting turn of events for me. If I had decided or had buried in my subconscious that I did not want to win a lottery - why then had I bought a lottery ticket for the Friday draw? Surely if this is what I believed deep down inside - I was likely sending energy out letting the universe know that I did not want to win.
The great creator was likely chuckling at my actions - even questioning the wisdom of the purchase. Me, I began thinking about why I would even think that way.
Then I remembered an experience I had in the past - where I was given a large sum of money as a result my father's death. Not only was I sad that my father had died - there was a lot of family fighting about the money that caused me great pain. Not surprisingly, my brain wanting to keep me safe from more emotional pain, planted the thought deep in my subconscious that I did not want to win or receive large sums of money.
Luckily for me - lottery tickets had never been on my 'must buy' list and I had only purchased 3 in the last 10 years - but it made me wonder what energy I was sending out all the way around.
So I decided it was time to deal with my limiting belief - because that is what it really was - a limiting belief.
PSYCH-K is a great tool to use to not only identify but to change our limiting beliefs we carry in the subconscious. It is a tool I had recently added to my coaching tool chest - to help me assist clients in eliminating their limiting beliefs. Now was the time to test how well it worked.
I took some time to go through the process I needed to connect subconscious to conscious brain and made sure the message that I replaced the limiting belief with was "It s safe to win, acquire and make large sums of money". The process seemed easy enough - and I felt a shift inside that I could not describe.
Monday, I brought the lottery ticket I had purchased several days earlier into the kitchen - and looked up the winning numbers. It was a $20 winning ticket! Now I realize that may not be a large sum of money - but for me it was an interesting turn of events.
We do create everything that happens to us by what we think and how we feel. Our job is to find out the stories that are buried deep within us and change them to fit the videos, pictures and vision boards we create consciously. When there is a match - we can begin taking an active roll in our future!
