Releasing Automatic Response Systems
Have you ever responded "inappropriately" to something going on in someone's life? They wanted you to be happy for them and instead you were sad, or they wanted you to feel afraid and instead you were totally calm? How confusing have emotions been, especially when there is a way you should think and feel that is dictated by someone else? One temporary solution to reduce the confusion, and figure out how to respond according to other people's needs and desires, was to put in place something called automatic response systems. Essentially these systems insured that you responded in the way that people needed or wanted you to, so that you could belong in the group, be liked and accepted and make sure that you fit in. If your response patterns didn't fit the people around you there was the threat of being rejected, left alone, shamed, or a becoming a subject of distain.
Often the time comes when there is a desire born from within you to become authentic and self-aware, to know what's true for you and show up as you truly are rather than how you've been conditioned or taught to be. It's a desire to release the masks, heal the trauma, become conscious, express yourself and have the choice to live fully and give and receive love. One step in this is to release the automatic response systems, in other words, all the ways you taught yourself to respond in order to fit in and belong in your family structure or the culture and society you grew up in. As you do this you can get in touch with how you really feel, what you do care about, what you love most, how you are inspired to show up in the world and what you are called to participate in.
What if now is the time to use your life to empower and inspire you? What would that be like? What if you can be the one who re-claims your capacity to love, have an open heart and express what's true for you? What if you can be the one to release fears, heal traumas and end cycles of abuse that are carried through your family line and in the enviroments you've been living in? Are you willing to inspire you? Could your life be the one that you're proud of? Are you willing to celebrate you?
Now more than ever there is a call to wake up and claim your greateness, acknowledge your difference, embrace your uniqueness and contribute to new conversations, new creations, and different possibilities actualizing. You don't have to do this, it's a choice to be and do this. Are you willing for what you are called to be and do to not make sense to other people? It may not. And, at the same time as you step into what you know you can be and do, I wonder how many people and how many energies can show up to support you in that. If you would like assistance to release your automatic response systems, such as those that would have you shutting down, not allowing yourself to move forward, or justifying that it's just not time I would love to assist you to shift this. I wonder how much space and ease you can have stepping into your greatest life and being all of you.
