Episode 071: A Childhood Decision Was Running My Life Into The Ground
“You can’t read the label from inside the jar.”
A phrase I initially heard from a wise business coach. And though thought-provoking, not until years later have I understood the wisdom it imparts.
In a nutshell the phrase means we can’t see what’s transpiring when we’re in the thick of it (in the jar). From relationships, to business, to perimenopause, when we’re smack dab in the middle of it, it is challenging to gain perspective (read the label).
We can’t get a full 360-degree perspective when we can’t see from the outside-in.
To round that perspective out, Dr. Joe Dispenza notes if we want to create a new personal reality, then we have to start thinking about what we’ve been thinking about, and change our inner narrative.
Without guidance and mentorship, we are left to fend for ourselves.
We have never been taught how to take inventory of past experiences and the emotional residue left behind (the unresolved trauma).
We carry that stuff with us everywhere we go.
The term “baggage” is so spot on!
Prior to doing my own inner work, which is a continual work in progress, I was lugging around a full set of Samsonites. I’ve got a carry-on and a backpack now. Much progress has been made, and more is yet to come.
I dive deeper into how a subconscious decision I made in childhood was running my life into the ground in this week’s edition of the Unraveling Together podcast.
