Are you down on yourself? Do you feel that you're not quite right some how? That you're less that you should be? That you're not what someone else expects you to be? Do you fit in with everyone around you? Or not? And have you decided that you're wrong for not fitting in? If you'd like to find out, rather than judging yourself as wrong, ask “What's right about me that I'm not getting?” What if you were not nearly as messed up as you thought you were? What if you were just different? And what if by acknowledging this, you became the difference the world needs?**
This is one of My Favourite Qs, which I will re-publish, with varied scenarios, once every 6-12 months. What if even just remembering this ONE Q helped you create the life you'd truly like?
Do you have a nagging ache, pain, sadness or other uncomfortable physical sensation? Have you tried all the usual things and yet it lingers? For example, asking “Who does this belong to?” and returning to sender when you become aware it's not yours. Or asking “Body, what are you telling me?” and following your body's lead. Then if the ache remains, ask “Who or what am I unwilling to lose?” Notice if you recall any event or person from your life now, or in the past. Have you locked into your body something that you decided you can't let go, even though it's hurtful or toxic? Are you keeping reruns of an event in body, saying “if only I'd done this, it would have turned out better?” Perhaps you're exhausting yourself with the dream that someone will change the way you know is possible, but instead you let them drive the knife in deeper? What if by being willing to let go of events and people you've locked into your body alleviated your aches, pains, sadness or other longings? And what if it created even more space for you to enjoy your life now?
Have you ever lamented “I don't belong!” or spent your life trying to fit in with others? Has it been easy? Or perhaps you've always known you were different and found it simpler (and more fun) to hang out by yourself, doing your own thing? Did you nevertheless feel a nagging pressure to belong, or believe that you were somehow wrong for not fitting into groups around you? What if there was nothing wrong with not belonging? Did you know the definition of belong includes: to be the property of, to be part of, and be suitable for something? Is that what you're looking for? If you'd like clarity about this, ask “What's the value of wanting to belong?” Perhaps your inability or non-desire to “belong” was simply your awareness that you were already wholly and suitably the property of something: you? So what if rather than “longing to be” something else, you embraced being all of who you are already?
