MUSE-INGS: Do You Feel That You Are Not Enough?

Funny how, when we choose to believe the ‘not enough’ myth in one area of life, we seem to overshadow other areas with ‘not enough’ mentality. If it all starts with a sense of ‘not enough time’ then we really must be careful about sliding into a belief that ‘I am not enough.’

This belief in the self as not enough can be an insidious belief that creeps into our unconscious mind from childhood and sits there coloring all that we do, without presenting itself for us to examine. Doesn’t it seem as if most of us were chosen last for the kickball teams? [or at least our remembrance/perception is that we were always the last one picked!] Somewhere in our childhood some kid chose to play with our friend and exclude us. At some point a parent or teacher sent us the message that we weren’t good enough, even if it was inadvertent or unconscious. [‘Why didn’t you get a better grade on that?’ ‘I wish you were like your brother!’ ‘When I was a kid…’ ‘When your room is clean enough for my standards then you can have ice cream.’] No matter the source, the little kid inside us has embraced the notion that ‘I’m not good enough.’

So now we are adults, scurrying through life with huge to-do lists and stress and time pressures. How many times have you heard [or said], ‘There’s never enough time!’?

I think the message for us is to recreate our relationship to time so that we can remove the ‘not enough’ energy from our being. What if we were to declare that there is just enough time to do what needs to be done in any given day? Doesn’t that take some pressure off us as we judge ourselves deficient because we didn’t accomplish everything we set out to do? We think we’re not enough when we decide there’s not enough time.

This is related to my mantra: Everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have at any given time.

In this present moment, you are making choices about what you will and will not do in that moment. You are making the best choice you can with what you know right then. You might get some feedback that would cause you to make a different choice later but, in that moment, with what you had to work with, you made the best choice possible. And all you have is the present moment. You aren’t leaping forward to see what the consequences might be and what you might learn, then coming back to the present to decide your action. You make a choice in the moment and act on it. Then you get the feedback.

Each of us only has the present moment in which to live. If we worry about the past or the future we take energy out of this present moment. This moment is enough. WE are enough. Every choice is a lesson to be learned, bringing with it all the feedback we need at just the right time.

Be enough. Believe that you are enough. You have enough time. The corollary is that, if you didn’t get it done, it wasn’t meant to be done in that moment.

Now relax.

MYSTIC MESSAGE from The Divine Feminine: Not Enough Time?

Dear Ones,

Time is speeding up for everyone on Earth and there is a certain level of panic about it in some people. For millennia human beings have lived with an unconscious understanding that time would pass at a certain rate and that there would always be time enough for anything they wanted to do. Lives were shorter for most humans in history and there was an understanding that one lived each day to its fullest potential because there were no guarantees about tomorrow. People lived in harmony with the seasons and the Sun because they measured time by the signals from them.

In the 21st Century, human beings are living in an artificially created concept of time, where everything is instantly available and changing so rapidly that change can barely be measured before the next change occurs. There is an underlying anxiety of ‘not enough time’ and this translates into a feeling of ‘not enough’ about everything in life. This sense of lack starts with time.

There is a certain peace available to those who live in harmony with Nature and her cycles and without the demands and stress of a timed schedule that requires humans to deny their natural rhythms and the rhythm of the spheres, of Nature. Waking with the Sun, choosing activities based on the season, eating the foods that are available during that season and storing those that can be stored for the times when no food is growing. Travel was slower and so adjusting the body to the new location was easier on the systems. Most people didn’t travel very far from home and so they learned to be in consonance with their usual surroundings. Time was not a pressure but something with which one learned to live as a part of natural life.

Today you are always worried about deadlines and schedules and the pressure of traffic and travel and the expectations that you put on yourselves is artificially created. Can you take some time today to slow your pace and breathe deeply of the atmosphere provided by Mother Earth? Can you look at your schedule and program into it some time for contemplation, peaceful existence rather than busy-ness? Can you reduce the ‘to-do’ list so that you are not feeling at the end of the day as if there is never enough time?

You create for yourself anxiety around a belief of ‘never enough’ when you make for yourself an expectation that you must accomplish more than you can reasonably expect to do in a particular day. Even if you do complete everything on your to-do list for today, will you feel at peace? Will you relax? Or will you be jumping ahead to worry about what is coming next?

In this time of great transition one of the first places that you must explore is your concept of time and your relationship to the time that you have. It is true that the Earth is experiencing some changes that are making this human idea of time as seconds ticking away on a clock seem to be moving at a faster pace than in the past. It is true that the day is no longer the same 24 hours that you used to feel that it was. And so being present to each moment as it presents itself to you becomes that much more important.

Take each moment and live it fully. Do not ask what you can do in that moment but, rather, ask who you will BE. Allow the ‘doing’ to flow from the ‘being’ and you will feel that there is plenty of time.

Work to overcome your sense of ‘not enough time’ and you will feel that there is enough of everything in your life!

And so it is.
