How many of our limitations are actually all in our heads?
I got back from a long badminton tournament on Saturday night, in which I had to play a total of seven matches, feeling exhausted and somewhat disappointed with myself that I hadn’t been able to play my best game in the final of the women’s singles.
Those of you who have read my blogposts will know that I enjoy playing badminton and that Resonance Repatterning has helped me tremendously in improving my game on all levels – physical, emotional, and mental. In fact, enjoying badminton is all down to these sessions as, when I started, I practically hated it!
So when I got back on Saturday night, I began to wonder why my body had given up on me and how much of the pain I experienced in my arm was due to physical causes and how much to my mental state or my limiting beliefs. When I had seen the schedule of the matches on Wednesday, I had felt rather daunted at the prospect of so many of them. How would I survive seven, high level matches? I asked myself.
The answer became very clear on Saturday when I could barely play in the final.
Why? Because I believed that I couldn’t.
“Biological behavior can be controlled by invisible forces, including thought, as well as it can be controlled by physical molecules like penicillin, a fact that provides the scientific underpinning for pharmaceutical-free energy medicine… Our beliefs control our bodies, our minds, and thus our lives.” ~ Bruce H. Lipton, The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles
I have since done a Belief Repatterning to address this issue and I am looking forward to the next tournament, free of my limiting belief that I am half-dead. No wonder I couldn’t play if I was resonating with such a statement!
What about you? Where in your life do you feel certain limiting beliefs might be holding you back?
With love and gratitude,
