"You have underestimated
what you deserve."
-- Alan Cohen
It's a case of artificial limitation. We made it up. We made it up when we desired it, and we made it up when we told ourselves that we don't deserve it, that we are unworthy of it.
I love this bit from Abraham, Esther Hicks: "You have heard of buyer's remorse? I really could be more accurately called desirer's remorse."
"Desirer's remorse is having a desire but not maintaining the vibrational frequency of it. You are letting the reality that you are observing control your vibrational atmosphere, and therefore you are not staying up to speed with your own desire. Your desire isn't wrong. You didn't make a mistake. You just didn't stay up to speed with your desire."
I have had this happen many, many times. I have a desire, then within a few minutes, I begin to talk myself out of it, making lists of why this won't work, why I don't deserve it, how I can't even imagine it very clearly because, because, because.
Another supporting bit comes from Mike Dooley, aka The Universe, where he writes, "It's so tempting to look at your present life situation, at whom you're with, at where you work, at what you have and have not, and think to yourself, "This was obviously meant to be. . . I'm here for a reason." And to a degree, you'd be right. But you are where you are because of the thoughts you used to (and may still) think, and so you are where you are to learn that this is how life works--NOT because it was meant to be."
He continues with the most important part: "Don't give away your power to vague or mysterious logic. Tomorrow is a blank slate in terms of people, work, and play, because it, too, will be of your making. You will again have that sense that it was meant to be, no matter who or what you've drawn into your life. Nothing is meant to be, except for your freedom to choose and your power to create."
I love that line, "Don't give your power to vague or mysterious logic. Tomorrow is a blank slate. . ." We often use vague or mysterious logic on ourselves. We need not be the least concerned about what others think of our choices, because our own ego has plenty of vague and mysterious logic to chill us to the bone.
In all cases like this, it is our own artificial limitations. There are no real limitations, only those that we imagine in our head. There are thousands of examples of people who have not only overcome, but have gone far beyond limitations.
