Time to Throw Away Your Baggage Claim Ticket
By Kristen Howe
Have you ever checked your bag at the airport and received that tiny precious slip of paper that is the only connection between you to your bag?
Of course you have and if you’ve ever had your bag get lost, you know just how valuable that paper is, because it is the key to getting your stuff back. But what if you don’t want your stuff back?
Huh? You might be wondering why you would bother traveling stuff if you wouldn’t want it back, and I understand if that’s your reaction, but stick with me here…
Imagine this, would you ever cling onto a bag claim check that is for a bag full of clothes that don’t fit you and that you don’t even like? What about a bag that was full of clothes that weren’t even yours?
Ridiculous right? If you realized that the claim check you had was for a bag full of clothes that didn’t fit you and you didn’t like, you would most likely not bother with the hassle of claiming your bag; in fact, you might even feel relief as you realized the airline had allowed you to unload a bunch of junk.
Yet, so many of us are carting around bags that are full of stuff that no longer fit us in size and style and functionality and we get really committed to that stuff, we form a tight fisted connection between us and our ‘stuff’.
Now stuff isn’t always tangible, in fact, what I’m referring to today is EVERYTHING else…
- Our stories
- Our resistance
- Our history
- Our habits
And the list goes on and on…
It’s easy to get caught up and trapped in all our ‘stuff’ and forget our power. It’s easy to keep carting that bag around with us and claiming it again and again. And when we get so attached we forget that we all have the power to instantly change, instantly let go, and instantly open up.
Now, stories don’t always start off as baggage, a story can start off as a funny happening to share, yet as we look closer at the stories we consistently repeat to ourselves, everyone else and the Universe, you may notice a pattern…
Perhaps your stories always end up with you:
- Not getting your way
- Not getting enough
- Not getting what you want
- Not getting what you need
- Not getting what you asked for
And again, the list goes on and on…
Keep Reading for some power questions designed to help free you from your negative stories…
Free: Create Powerful,Prosperity Magnetizing Intention Statements in 7 Easy Steps:
Look at the stories you tell about yourself and ask these power questions:
‘What am I saying about myself when I tell this story?’
Really look at it and be honest with yourself here.
‘What is another story I could tell instead that supports my expansion?’
Perception and personal filters are always at work. Simply take a look at things with a fresh perspective and try a different filter, to see where things can go.
‘Do I feel negatively charged when I tell this story?’
When I say charged I mean, amped up, annoyed, that feeling of something getting ‘under your skin’.
Now that you know what you are putting out into the Universe, use this information for easy, simple change, with the 3 R’s.
Don’t beat yourself up; we’re all works of art in progress. The great news is that you are now conscious of these messages you are sending out into the world. Remember, the awareness starts the shift. So relax knowing that your new awareness has already begun your movement.
Relate to your new awareness and choose stories and intentions that support you. Look for proof around you (even if it is in someone else’s life) that what you desire exists – when you do this, you put yourself into vibrational harmony with it.
Let go! Unclench that fist, tear up that baggage claim check and watch the pieces of it fly away and with that, say goodbye to your baggage. You are officially free.
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|Sometimes we are holding onto baggage that isn’t even ours in the first place. Here’s what I want you to do, take a minute and write down 3 recurring stories that you know you tell about yourself, your life etc. and then ask this power question cycle…“Where did I get this story?”
“Does this story serve me or hurt me?”
“What is a new story I can tell right now that will support me?”
|“Thank you for this wonderful and simple to comprehend insight!
I have read many articles on the art of letting go, but I found yours the best so far. I could totally relate to your way of explaining it.
Please keep writing more on the process of letting go, because the internet is flooded with articles about the art of manifestation, but not many people have explained the most important process of LETTING GO….
once again, thanks a lot!”
