I can’t imagine a better metaphor of how your past affects your self-esteem than the following.

Imagine that you are in the deep end of a swimming pool and are an excellent swimmer. Next, imagine that spontaneously and without warning, lead weights start becoming attached to various parts of your body. First to one arm, then the other, then a leg, then two, around your neck, your waist etc. The weights are secured in such a way that you cannot free yourself from them.

As more weights become attached can you see what is going to happen to you? The conclusion is obvious, isn’t it? With no one there to help, you are eventually going to drown.

Now, if we equate each lead weight with a negative memory or experience from your life (which get anchored to you much like the weights), we have a similar situation and outcome.

If you’re not fully aware of what such negativity does to you, I ask you to recall such a memory now and notice what impact it is having on you emotionally, mentally and physically whilst you do.

I’m sure you’ll notice some or all of the following: tiredness, sadness, emotional pain, heaviness, energy depletion, feeling trapped, depressed, guilt, shame, disappointment to name a few.

Doesn’t this feel like a “weight” on you, and more specifically on how you feel about yourself and your life?

Yet, you identify yourself with this negativity don’t you? In other words you call it “my life”.

Well this thing you call your life is simply an albatross around your neck which is lowering your self-esteem , your Life Force Energy and causing you to give up on your so called life.

In other words it is causing you bit by bit to give up on living!

Are you happy with that?

If not and you would like to free yourself by starting to permanently erase those heavy negative memories contact me via the link below and request a complimentary introductory phone/Skype session.
