How your past is messing with your business

Feb 21, 2022

So the past is the past right? Well... not so much. 

Many times when we talk about healing the past, people think, "Why open up a can of worms? Leave the past in the past."

But if there are areas of your life where you are stuck, procrastinating, angry or scared, you are still in the past, but in the present.

I talk a lot about the subconscious and if you've watched any of my videos, you've heard me say it's running 95% of your life. If there's anything that is stopping you, even when you 'know better', but you can't seem to 'do better', then that’s probably a clue.

An example could be that maybe you're supposed to be charging more in your business or setting boundaries with your clients or loved ones. You know you are 'supposed to' but you just can't seem to put it into motion. 

Let's talk a little bit about how this works, and why it's showing up. The main thing to understand about your subconscious is that it's 100% emotional, it runs old programs, and it doesn't understand the concept of time.
If you struggle with feeling like you aren't good enough, or you feel that people aren't going to want what you have to sell, or they're not going to want to hear what you have to say, let's dive a little deeper. 

Let's say that when you were 10 years old, you worked really hard on your science fair project for school. And you felt rejected. Your parents didn't appreciate it. Your teacher didn't understand it. It didn't get the accolades you were hoping for. What happens next, is you get this 'download' that tells you, "I'm not good enough". 

I know that seems like small insignificant experience, certainly not traumatic in any way, but your mind is creating your belief system nonetheless. Crazy but true! 

When we are kids, we don't understand that maybe the people around us were just busy. Everything revolves around us. And if something bad happens, we 'download it'. We personalize it. We say "there's something wrong with me." So whatever age that happens, it becomes set in place, it's now programmed. It's complete.

How it shows up today: Whatever your current age is, let's say you go to create or sell something for your business. You'll notice that same exact feeling is with you. You revert back to whatever age that rejection happened. You are back to 10 years old feeling rejected about the science fair project, or a time you got made fun of on the playground, or failed a test. 

I used to feel so small when I walked into a room. Like I’m less than others or I don’t belong. It can feel powerless, even though your logical mind knows “I’m a grown ass adult!” You hesitate or get nervous or hide.

When something is stopping you. When you are stuck, when you know better, but you can't do better.

Your logical mind (5%) knows all of the amazing truths:

  • I'm worthy and valuable
  • I'm enough
  • Of course I can charge this!
  • People want to hear what I have to say
  • People want what I have to sell.

The other 95% runs the show and in that moment, you're really 10 years old. So what do you do?

You have to resolve those two beliefs. You have to communicate with your mind at the level of the problem so you can update the past into the present.

If you have any areas in your business where you see that happening and you want to really put the past in the past for good, I want to invite you to my workshop, Kick Overwhelm to the Curb, I’m sharing tools to help you start to reprogram old beliefs that no longer serve you so you can feel like the confident, capable adult that you are.
