Soul-Level vs. Will Power Change!
by Danielle MacKinnon
In my work as an Intuitive and Coach, I frequently encounter people who have been working on their personal challenges for years with little success. As I’ve learned through my sessions with thousands of people, there is a very clear, very obvious reason for this: Soul-Level change trumps willpower change every time!
Imagine that one of your biggest life challenges is speaking up for yourself. Imagine
that this is something you’ve struggled with for twenty, thirty, or even forty years!
Now, imagine that you’ve begun thinking that CHANGING this about yourself would
be a good thing.
So, what is the first thing most people do when they want to make change in
their lives? They rely on sheer force of will.
For example, a person using willpower to create change in their ability to speak up
will often start forcing themselves to speak up. They’ll push their inner voice out.
They’ll compel themselves to tell their spouse what they really want… Most likely
you’ve even tried this willpower tactic yourself, right?
In the end, did willpower work in finally allowing you to speak up (or make your
desired change)? Clearly, it did not, otherwise you wouldn’t be here reading this
Sheer willpower forces you to compete with yourself. Let’s go back to the not-
feeling-comfortable-speaking-up example. The big question is, WHY don’t you feel
comfortable speaking up? It’s because you have a belief that says it’s not okay. For
some, this belief is that if they speak up, they will feel vulnerable and unsafe. For
others, speaking up puts them in the limelight – which may give their peers a chance
to see that they really don’t have any idea what they’re talking about. It’s the reason
behind not-speaking-up (the WHY) that actually deserves your attention rather than
the not-speaking up itself. And every time you try to make yourself speak up, you’re
going against what you actually believe (that it’s not really okay to do).
NOW, if you instead change the belief that says you’re not safe or you’re not
awesome enough, your world would, in fact, change in unimaginable ways because
you would have made a deep Soul-Level Change. You would get to feel totally safe
and protected all the time. You would go through your day knowing and BELIEVING
that you were protected, loved and really wonderful. In your new world, you would
finally and easily feel safe speaking up! And isn’t this much easier than competing
against your own beliefs?
If the inner work you’ve been doing on yourself isn’t working for you, looking to
Soul-Level change is probably your answer. Shifting your belief, which in turn shifts
your decisions, actions, and experiences, seems a whole lot easier than forcing
yourself to behave in a certain way!
