Are You “Shoulding” on Yourself?


Do you should on yourself? You know, “I should be doing this…”, or, “This isn’t how it should be….” Oftentimes we “should” on other people or situations that don’t personally involve us.

I don’t as much as I used to, but recently I was feeling really frustrated and found that at the core of the frustration was a judgment about the way things “should” be happening.

When we get caught up in the “should” of a situation, we’re usually a) in judgment and b) feel like there is an exact right and an exact wrong. Not only that, but we push out the Divine as our mind has decided it is going to run the show. As we are caught up into this pattern, business slows because we aren’t tapped into our deep well of creativity, instead the mind is keeping us inside a very strong box.

When you find yourself in a place of “shoulding,” take a breath. Allow your consciousness to flow deep within your body and ask to be connected with your Divine self. Ask this part what you get to let go of in order to move forward.

The more you do this, the more you’ll find you have access to your creativity and to the miracles available to you through the Divine.
