What happens when your body is ready to hit your goal before your mind is?

“Your body is ready.” she said.

“Your body is ready.” she said.

For the past few days, my new yoga teacher had been training me into certain advanced poses I’d been attempting for years, but somehow I kept stumbling.

She continued: “It’s your mind that’s getting in the way.”

Doing the work I do, her message immediately clicked.

What was I waiting for?

Why “couldn’t” I do it?

The only reason I believed I wasn’t able to do these poses were because of my past of being unsuccessful at them.

But there was a flaw in this belief…

I was projecting my past into my present, and therefore limiting my future.

And that’s where the subconscious limitation was.

When I work with clients, even if we’re focusing on one area (business, relationship), we look at their life holistically because if you’re limiting yourself in one area of your life, you’re most certainly doing it in other places.

Mostly unconsciously.

These small day-to-day situations are a reflection of what’s going on in your internal world.

Life is constantly reflecting that back to you.

So with the yoga pose…

The flaw in my belief was that I was measuring myself against a PAST action, without considering the person that I’d become since I’d “failed” at the pose.

The practice, the hours, the focus, and improvements I’d implemented since then… I was overlooking the process.

So what was the solution? 

I needed to trust myself to know that as I grow and evolve, the outcome will be different. It must be, because I’ve become a different version of myself.

I am a student of my own work, constantly catching myself in my own self-imposed limitations, and reprogramming my subconscious to support and empower instead of hold myself back.

This is also a process I run my clients through:

What are the self-imposed limitations?

What is the truth, which you can feel in your soul?

When you let go of your past, how do you get to co-create with the present, and as a result, uplevel your future?

Remember, your past does NOT determine your future.

You can change your future by shifting your beliefs that were formed in the past, and showing up in alignment to your truth in the present.

When this insight clicked during my yoga training, and I ran myself through my proprietary subconscious reprogramming process, and here’s what happened….

I started doing advanced poses I’d never done before. That I’d been scared to do for a year.

My body was ready, and my mind was telling me that I couldn’t….

Once I GOT that this was happening… getting into these poses became so easy that it was almost unbelievable.

(This, by the way, is exactly how my clients experience the quantum shifts they do… it’s “easy” once the limiting subconscious program gets cleared).

Recognizing that this is deep subconscious work, so naturally it can be difficult to spot these things on your own.

That’s why it’s so important to have a mentor who can spot this for you and run you through a trialed-and-tested process to move you OUT of the limitation and onto the highest path toward your goals.

My bet? 

Your body is ready. YOU’RE ready for that next level you’re calling in.

Your mind just needs to catch up.

How will you bridge the gap?
