Restraint isn’t a word that gets bandied around the personal growth realms too much, yet it can have a HUGE affect on your reality if you choose to embrace the archetypal frequency a little deeper in your world…
This is THE week to have a lil looksee 👀
Think about restraint, what it means and how you could pull more of it into your reality both for your benefit and everyone around you.
Do you find yourself over eating, ’stress eating’, or pulled into old behaviours around your diet or substances?
Do you find yourself in social or work situations not able to contain adding to the gossip or small talk being verbalised around you?
Do you wait to respond or be invited for your input, judgement or opinion on any given situation?
Do you find yourself over-sharing with people, constantly talking about your own inner process that might be crying out for some containment?
Do you find yourself needing to be right, or trying to get others to see it your way?
Is there a constant restlessness or drive that’s inhibiting you from stopping all the outside activity and taking a break?
Is pornography a part of your world? Are you using it for a ‘release’, to manage or regulate your otherwise unpredictable emotional realm?
Are you addicted to constantly needing to check your phone and social media?
Are you handling your relationship issues without projecting outwards before sitting with what has actually arisen within your own physical vehicle to take full ownership of?
These are just some of the many places in our day to day lives that utilizing restraint can really assist us in emPowering ourselves, bringing our precious life force back in, by not leaking energy outwards in some of these ways.
Many times its because we have the frequencies of stress & dissatisfaction rumbling away in the depths that partaking in any of the above allows a discharge of that uncomfortable energetic dynamic of our internal process, and doing so makes us temporarily feel better.
It doesn’t last.
When you feel an old urge or tendency arise, stop, in that moment.
Feel the sensation in your body.
Sit with the discomfort.
Be still with it.
Allow it to be there without playing the old story out.
Not guaranteed to work every time, but the simple awareness of the behaviour begins to break up our old dysfunctional and self sabotaging patterns.
We’re not perfect. We all play some of these things out, but flexing the will power and bringing more restraint into our every day lives can pay huge dividends in the long run, especially if this buzz word of RESTRAINT can be kept in the field the next time you go to play out a long standing issue or one that’s been somewhat of a blindspot until this point in time…
Juicy InQuiry 😉
