Downplaying

I colour in hearts for value, money – anything that comes into my life of value that I can thank the universe for and be so so grateful for and track to bring even more abundance into my life. It could be a drink bought for me, a talk I watched that provided some great insight, finding 5c on the floor – anything and everything!!

 

It was during one of my master classes where we were working on mindset and language around money that I had a big aha moment about this seemingly wonderful act that I was doing.

 

You see, when I colour in those hearts, say it was dinner bought for me for $50, I would colour in a $10 or maybe go up to a $20 heart, even though that particular item had a clear amount to it. I would downplay it each and every time, no matter what I was colouring in for and whether it also had a clearly defined amount like this dinner, I would do this.Every single time without fail.

 

It then really got me thinking during that session and just like that the big aha came when I realised I do that in other areas of my life. I downplay myself like nothing you have ever seen. Be it as myself, in my business and so forth. It really was a big slap in the face to see a pattern playing out, which really hasn’t got a huge connection until you follow the wispy line from point A to point B. I mean who knew those pretty coloured hearts could have such a huge meaning and lesson behind them and that that would be what gave me a huge insight in how I show myself and pretty much be in the world.

 

By downplaying myself, I was always dimming my shine, my talent, my knowledge and that is kinda what I wanted sub-consciously as the thought of being in my full power, of being successful and amazing is frankly, scary as shit. I have been working on this and dipping my toes in, but until that light bulb moment, had never seen it in full colour like that, in different tasks that I wouldn’t have connected the dots too before now.

 

Being made aware of this, really made me start to not want to downplay anymore, I mean, who am I to dim the light of my own soul?? Who am I to say oh no our purpose here is a bit too scary right now so let’s just carry on as we were for a while longer?! This got me saying a big HELL NO!!! I don’t want to be this anymore and I am quite happy now to step into my role. It may take little baby steps, but baby steps are much better than snuffing out the flame entirely for big moments at a time.

 

So now I embrace those freaking hearts and give them the amount they so deserve and that I deserve to have, because I do deserve that $50 dinner, I do deserve that free session I got, I deserve every single heart that is coloured in here and more! The universe wouldn’t have provided it if I wasn’t. And I am so ever grateful and feel the joy of that abundance deep in my heart every time I grab a colour to start. It made me realise that if I don’t want further abundance to be downplayed in my life, I had to start giving it the true value it deserved.

 

I am also allowing myself to shine brighter each day, to highlight myself rather than downplay what God gave me in this once and only lifetime. I no longer want to squirrel it away, wasting such precious life when I could be doing something amazing with it.

 

Is there habits in your life that may seem insignificant that may also give you a big aha moment? Take a moment to think about it and join the dots… Feel free to share if you get any ” Oh my Gawd” moments 🙂

 

Till next time…keep walking your spiritual path xx

    You’re going to be a great mom! I can so relate to downplaying – getting back into doing massages regularly right now, working on so many different things – I tend to spread myself too thin – to give out more than i take back in. That’s my regular method of living, but am learning to receive now.

        Indeed. I still have a tendency to just give without thought of receiving, but little by little learning to ask. And to say no.

        Yes, and this week’s Pele Report talks all about the importance of taking personal time, so this biggie is even in the stars.

    Downplaying is a method of dimming our energy. We can never turn our light off if our intention is to share the light. The more lights that get turned off, the darker the world will become.

    Great post! 🙂 I relate to this so much; I used to do that, and I’m still guilty of it sometimes. Hiding the light of one’s soul reminds me of Matthew 5:14 – 16: “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” 🙂
