As a psychic, I’m all for going with our gut. With one grand exception: When our ego is in resistance. Which is just about any time we’re trying to up-level our income.
Our ego’s job is to keep us within what is known, within our comfort zone. That’s how we’ve survived for millenia! And even if our comfort zone is a state of lack rather than abundance … it’s still what we’re used to.
When we try to leave the known realm of our comfort zone, the first response of the ego is to go on red alert. The ego isn’t trying to hold us back from achieving our dreams. It’s simply trying to keep us safe.
Because the ego governs our subconscious, which is in charge of our feelings, egoic resistance largely plays out at this level. The result? We don’t even remotely “feel like” doing what will take us to the next income level.
Time and time again, my clients will be initially excited about our plan of action for growing their income … and a week later? Our approach will no longer “feel right.” Their subconscious mind is creating self-doubt, insecurity, uncertainty and fear, which induces a state of lethargy and distraction that keeps them stuck in inaction OR unproductive busy-work.
Those feelings are big, fat liars!
They are generated by the subconscious in order to keep things as they are. The subconscious knows that it can survive within current circumstances. And so it resists what is new, different, and likely to create unknown results.
It’s important to realize – especially if you’re a sensitive, empathic person who is used to relying on your gut instincts for guidance – that you cannot trust your feelings when you are about to step out of your comfort zone. And increasing your income will ALWAYS involve stepping outside of your comfort zone!
In instances when our subconscious mind is fighting to maintain the status quo, CONSCIOUS thought must prevail. Don’t listen to your feelings. THINK.
You know that only new action creates new results. And if you want radical new results, radically new action is required.
You know that doing what you’ve always done gets you what you’ve always gotten.
And you know that your ego wants to keep you where you are – not out of malice, but because these are the instincts that have ensured our survival for millenia.
You also know there is no spiritual bypass for taking action.
These are all things you KNOW.
Don’t let your feelings talk you out of what you know to be true.
We have developed consciousness for a reason – so that we can overcome the instinct to merely survive in order to thrive through THOUGHT.
The next time you “feel” unmotivated about taking new action, remember … your feelings can be big, fat liars when you’re about to up-level your income.
What do you think? Have your feelings ever led you to stay in inaction? Leave a comment and share!
