How To Stop Playing Small
Did you know that by the age of 35 around 95% of your thoughts 🧠 are just a loop that is repeated on autopilot?
Unless you are consciously open to receiving new information without judgement, your brain will filter everything you see/experience/read/hear through what you *already know to be true.*
Want to peek into your thought loops? Ask yourself these questions...
👉 What outdated/inaccurate stories have you been telling yourself for years?
👉 How do you think that impacts the way you see yourself as a sexual being?
👉 How do you think that impacts the way you respond to your lover?
Here’s a reframe for you: You can *give yourself permission* to wipe your slate clean of those old thoughts so that you can live a new reality - one that will feel infinitely better for you. Here’s an exercise to get you started:
🖊️ Begin by journaling on the 3 questions above. Allow yourself to write without editing and see what comes up for you.
😢 Feel any feelings that arise as you write. Allow emotions to bubble up and be released.
💖 Breathe into your heart and affirm that you are ready to see a new reality. One that isn’t limited to what you have believed for all these years.
💫 Next time you notice an old thought pop up, don’t beat yourself up. Gently observe it and then choose a different thought that works for you and the life you want for yourself.
It’s time to stop playing small and pretending you don’t know how powerful you truly are - in the bedroom and beyond. No more lying to yourself. No more acting as though you aren’t worthy.
You are infinitely powerful, it’s time to reclaim that truth!
I’d love to know which of these ideas most appeals to you? Let me know in the comments!
