Feeling stuck, that sense of lack or a thought like ‘prosperity isn’t coming fast enough’, even health issues, all of those thoughts and feelings of lack, limitation, health and relationship upset, all of those things are contributing to your mood. But that’s not why your mood shifts. That’s not why you’re feeling glum or upset or depressed or stuck, or in lack. I’m going to tell you a little secret. The things outside of you are not what are causing your upset. Even though it might seem that way, the things outside of you can’t impact your mood unless you let them. Now, that’s a bit of a pithy statement, and so many of you might even be rolling your eyes right now and saying, well, duh! And yet there’s something inside of you. There’s something deep in your subconscious that is actually creating these mood swings, the confusion, the doubt, the limitation, the upset.

There’s something deep in the subconscious that was created a really long time ago that is actually impacting your mood. And we can change this, now, permanently. So it’s not your fault. It’s actually something that happened a really long time ago. Let me explain that a little bit more. Now, when you were a child, young adult, and even adult, you actually experienced a traumatic event. You experienced a moment of extreme upset, an event that changed the trajectory of your thinking. Here’s what happened in that moment of upset. In that moment, there’s several things that we do to manage and cope and survive those moments. The first thing we do is we repress emotions. So, we had an emotion that was appropriate, that was correct, that was right, that we wanted to express, and yet the little ones that we were when that event happened, knew that the expression of that emotion would not have been safe. It wouldn’t have been safe. It might’ve even been dangerous if we had expressed that emotion long ago, when that traumatic event happened. In fact, for some of us, we knew that it wouldn’t have mattered if we had, if we expressed it. The majority of us, though, we knew that it wouldn’t have been safe had we expressed the purity of that emotion, anger, upset, sadness, fear. The adults in our life didn’t want us to express the emotion. We knew that, and we knew that in order to survive,

We had to repress. And that was a smart strategy because that repression helped us to survive. However, that emotion is still deep down in subconscious, repressed.

Now, the other thing that happens in the moment of upset is that we make a conclusion about who we are and what life is. We make a conclusion in that moment when for example the teacher in first grade tells us to be quiet, we make a conclusion in that moment that, oh my gosh, my voice is not important. In a moment of neglect or abuse or violence or trauma, we make conclusions that life is not safe. In that moment where we are shushed or we are told that we’re not good enough, we made a conclusion that is still running things deep in the subconscious.

We’re not enough. We’re not good enough. We are not talented enough. We’re not gifted. We’re not lovable. These conclusions, they’re warped conclusions, but they’re conclusions that we made a long time ago that are still running the show deep in the subconscious. So, it’s not your fault. You get it.

Now, the other thing that we do is create protection mechanisms. These are defense mechanisms. Sometimes they’re default emotions. For example, one of my default emotions is lashing out in anger. Yay me, <laugh>. However, through the years of doing what I’m about to teach you and the healing work that you’re about to experience, I’ve been able to not reign it in because it’s not about reigning it in, it’s actually about allowing ourselves to express these things that we weren’t able to express so long ago. And that is actually the process for permanent change that happens in an RTT session.

So, as we start to understand that we’ve made conclusions about who we are, that feel like the truth, we’ve repressed emotions, as we should have because they wouldn’t have been safe to express. We’ve created coping mechanisms and avoidance mechanisms to make sure that we never visit that emotion, that repressed emotion again. And we never revisit that, that conclusion that we made. So, here’s our life. Our life is this avoidance mechanism. We’re not going there. We’re not going there. And protection mechanisms that we’ve created, like lashing out, anger, sadness, judging, introversion, those things are coping mechanisms that so that we will not shine our light too bright because that moment proved to us what life really is, thank you very much!

Now, the difference is, is that life happened to you. It’s not who you are. Life happened to you. It’s not who you are. However, there’s these parts of us that have decided this must be what life is and this is who we are, understandably. So, the opportunity is for us to actually change the dynamic, look at and revisit the parts of us that have made these conclusions about who we are and what life is. Because right now, they are subconscious programs that are running your life.

They’re making you feel like something out there has to change in order for you to be happy. They’re making you react to life. They’re making you overreact to life. Have you ever have that situation where someone shows up and says something and you are like in this crazy reaction? And even in the moment you might be saying, I am way overreacting to the circumstances here. There’s a reason why! It’s because of something that happened long ago that is saying, danger, danger, do not go there!

So right now, what’s happening is that as your mind is chewing on this, you are actually changing already. As your mind starts to consider this, it’s considering changing its viewpoint. It’s getting to a point where it’s saying: maybe it isn’t out there, and maybe instead of pointing at what’s wrong and saying that’s what’s wrong, and that out there has to change. Instead, we see the three fingers that are pointing back us and say, hey, maybe I need to change.

And it’s not a change of will, it’s not willpower that’s going to change it. It’s going deep into the subconscious and honoring those parts of us. They have a really good reason why they have been holding the reins on our light, on our power, on creation. And until we unwind and heal and transform those parts of us, life doesn’t accelerate. Life doesn’t create this beautiful manifestation and creative power.

Seeing the pattern is part of the transformation itself. When we see the pattern, it can actually shift. What can happen now with this new understanding is that as you move through your life, the upsets, the triggered moments will have new meaning for you. Because you know how you can’t unknow what you know in this moment, and it has changed, created a change in you right now, pushed open that door a little more.

When you come upon something in your life that is upsetting, that triggers you, you can now pause in that moment maybe, or pause after you’ve had your full reaction and say, wait, there’s a reason why I am reacting. Something happened a long time ago that triggered this reaction.

Wait, I can actually use this moment to do something different. And really the opportunity as you move forward through your life is to start pausing in the midst of reaction and instead say, ah, this is here because there’s a part of me that is ready to heal. There’s a part of me that that got stuck a long, long time ago in repressed emotion and avoidance mechanisms that’s ready to heal.

That’s why this moment of seeming upset has shown up for you. It’s nudging you. It’s saying, I want this part to heal so that we can find our freedom and our power in our life.

And when you do, the difference is standing in a state of grace, standing in a state of power, of potentiality, of faith and trust and knowing that life is here for you. That we live in a benevolent universe that is here for you. That every single thing that shows up, is here to support you and nudge you. Nudge you into an expansion that might not be possible without those circumstances.
