Traumatic Brain Injury, Denial and Limiting Scripts — Part 1
Posted by Second Chance to Live on May 19, 2008
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by and visit with me. You are always welcome around my table. Yesterday I spoke to the topic of traumatic brain injury and energy. In that post I shared an awareness with my visitors. Today I will develop the concepts that I spoke to in that post. Through my process I have come to better understand myself. I am a body, that houses my spirit that is directed by my soul — my mind, will and intellect.
My body is the house that I live in while I am here on planet earth. My soul – my mind, will and intellect – directs my body and my spirit gives me the ability to connect my mind to my heart. My spirit gives me the opportunity to be led by the Spirit of God. My spirit transcends my five senses and provides a spiritual window to perceive beyond my comprehension. My soul gives me the ability to understand and interpret what is transpiring in my world. My spirit, soul and body collectively empower my process and give me the capacity to create with my being.
As a computer that has been programmed to operate based on a specific set commands, so does my body, soul and spirit operate based on a set of beliefs and scripts. My beliefs and scripts – what I tell myself — invariably impact the way in which I live my life. My beliefs and scripts — in practice — inspire the behaviors that I use to relate to my world. Those behaviors can either hinder or empower my process. Behaviors become the channels that shape the way in which I use my spiritual and emotional energy.
Through a series of events in my life I began to realize that I was participating in behaviors that were no longer working for me. As I began to examine why those behaviors no longer worked for me, I discovered a common theme. What I believed and what I was telling myself fueled the substance of those limiting behaviors. In my quest to understand why I participated in my limiting behaviors — that were in essence undermining my process — I found that I was buying into a host of limiting beliefs that validated my limiting scripts.
Life limiting scripts are messages that we tell ourselves. These messages were given to us through various people. Unknowingly, we then internalized these scripts. For some of us these scripts have gone unchallenged for many, many years. Continued in Part 2
