Guilt - Is a very powerful emotion that can hold us in a grip so strong that we feel immobilized. It can be a belief that we have been carrying since childhood or one that was created later in life. It doesn't matter when the guilt started, what matters is how to let it go. I have had guilt about not being good enough for a very long time. To the point that in my adult life I would berate myself for doing something that created undeserved attention. That by some measurement I wasn't high enough on that scale to receive that recognition, it belonged to someone greater. Or, the opposite would happen, I would work extremely hard and do the very best I could, and the recognition was not forthcoming. Which in turn would infuriate me as to why they couldn't see my best efforts. Ah, then the guilt....Maybe I didn't work hard enough, or maybe I'm just not good enough...The mirror in front of me shows me that I am who I believe I am. Therefore if I believe that I am unworthy, why would anyone else believe otherwise. Getting rid of the guilt is an inside job....Tap in to your greater good, Turn on the best that you have to offer, Tune out all the negative thoughts that keep you in a space of less rather than more..
