Release Expectations and Gain Authenticity

shutterstock_138327299Do you hear yourself preface a sentence with “I should” or are you told by loved ones, friends, or bosses sentences that begin with “you should”?

The “should” in life acts as toxic and negative mental and emotional stimuli on a cellular level. This mindset has a deep long lasting effect on the mental, emotional and physical well-being. How are these beliefs and mental programming released? By imprinting authenticity and freedom into our thoughts as opposed to limiting beliefs.
Let me briefly explain. Anytime you preface a sentence with “I should”, stop and mindfully look at yourself in that situation. Ask yourself, “How can I release this burdensome mindset and instead choose a mindset by which I greet this experience?”

Likewise, if you find those around you inflicting “should”; such as, “You should be a better husband, sister, son, friend or employee” or “you should be more like Joe or Mary.” With love and compassion for yourself and that person imagine letting go of that limiting thought and choosing freedom at that moment. Remind yourself of this fact, “I am uniquely my own person and I strive to be the best I can be one moment at a time.” Trying to live up to expectations that are not in alignment with you only breeds dis- ease and disharmony cellularly in the body and mind.

Lovingly express yourself with truth, love, and compassion for all and strive to do your best and be your best. Live mindfully aware of how you show up in life so that you are choosing what feels aligned with who you are as a connected, divine being living out your human experience.
