Lose your self image, expand your potential

Present yourself as you are—eternal and complete. The facade you attempt to create prevents your potential from being seen.

We have ways we like to imagine ourselves. We create a facade out of our imagining and believe that’s who we really are. We may wish to view ourselves as the good parent, the loving partner, the valuable employee, or the best friend. We have a set of characteristics that we imbue into our image of ourselves, helping us believe that we are what we imagine.

Perhaps we see ourselves as a good parent: patient, supportive, firm, fair, in tune with their child, and justified in their discipline. Or we may view ourselves as a loving partner: passionate, funny, caring, intimate, and reliable. These are positive images. How could they limit us?

When we define a persona for ourselves, we create boundaries. We have created a conceptual box within which believe we are contained. This definition implies we are “this” and not “that”. The problem is that the persona we invent says more about what we aren’t, by exclusion, than about what we are. It implies we are limited to the traits we ascribe to ourselves. Seeing ourselves as the good parent, may prevent us from recognizing that we also are a free-wheeling creative spirit. Believing that we are a valuable employee may block our potential to be a risk-taking entrepreneur.

When we believe in our self-created persona, that is how we represent ourselves to the world. Others will view us as we present ourselves, and the definition/limitation is complete. Our identity, to ourselves and to the world, is set by our imaginings.

In divine reality, we are intrinsically interconnected in the sharing. We are an inseparable part of a divine and perfect whole. As such, it is impossible for us to be limited; we only imagine ourselves that way. We can be or become anyone we allow ourselves to be.

When we allow our sense of self to expand to include myriad possibilities, life becomes easier. We don’t generate self-created roadblocks, based on our self-defined boundaries. Others also will recognize our expanded potential, if only we acknowledge it first.

The key that frees us from limits is our sharing within—the splinter of divine consciousness that resides within us. It has access to all the generative power of the universe to help us create our lives. When we live in conscious cooperation with it, our potential unfolds and our possibilities expand.

Let’s take a moment to connect with our sharing within, to understand how this might work. We begin by slowing our breathing until it become soft, rhythmic, and even. We’ll picture our sharing within as a golden light in the middle of our chest, a warm glowing reminder of our divine connection. As we inhale the golden light intensifies; as we exhale the light spills out through and around us.

We’ll continue the gentle breathing and light visualization until we feel the calm, relaxed, and happy sensations of conscious connection with our sharing within.

We will ask our sharing within to show us something positive and unexpected about ourselves, something that doesn’t fit the persona we have created. Perhaps we’ve always prided ourselves as practical and logical, but now are shown that we have great imaginative artistic creativity. Perhaps we see ourselves as artistic and impractical, but now are shown that we have keen financial instincts. Whatever we are shown, we will trust that it is accurate and helpful for us.

Next we will ask our sharing within to give us one easy and simple way we can begin to exercise our newly found talent. Perhaps we should buy a sketch pad and start doodling, or perhaps we should start reading about investment strategies. Whatever we hear, we will know if is perfect for us.

We will picture ourselves, happy and fulfilled, engaging in the new activity. We’ll breathe golden light from our sharing within into this visualization, and will feel gratitude for our new and surprising ability. The mystery of the world includes our own infinite nature.
