At 5:00 this morning I woke up to an active mind. I had ideas in my head and was thinking about all the things I wanted to do. “Do something radical.”, the words of my chiropractor from the day before popped into my head. Well, waking up at 5:00 in the morning certainly is! (For me!) But I kept resisting the urge and tossing and turning. I thought the energy of the early morning hours would be good for my creativity, and I finally decided to be bold and wake up after only four hours of sleep. I made the coffee and found myself at my computer. Before I knew it I was performing my usual morning ritual checking my email, etsy account and bank account. Wait. Didn’t I wake up to do something creative? I looked out my window, and it was still dark outside. A familiar uneasy feeling came back to me. Waking up before dawn always makes me uneasy. It brings me back mentally to a time when I wasn’t in control of my own life and my own time, a time when an alarm clock forcefully jolted me out of my safe, comfortable bed in order to do things I didn’t enjoy: going to school or work. When I started working for myself I made myself a promise that I would never wake up to an alarm again unless it was absolutely necessary. “I’m not in control of my life if I wake up before dawn.” is a self limiting belief. If I were to hold onto this belief, I could miss some of the most magical hours of the day. I could miss the majesty of the sunrise that reminds us of new beginnings. All hours of the day are valuable and hold their own special energy, and I want to be able to experience all of them with an open mind and an open heart. “I’m fully alive and open all hours of the day.” is the belief I choose to have for myself. I can choose the old, limiting belief, or I can choose the new belief that empowers me and opens me up to possibilities.

What are some self limiting beliefs you have that are holding you back?
