So who's putting the I can't there in the first place?
Me of course, if I can place them there and make them part of my belief system, can I not just as easily replace them? Well of course I can as I'm discovering for myself at the moment.
Usually "I can't..." is followed by " because..." and the explaination soon follows, justifying why the can't is there in the first place. All nicely tied up so it becomes our truth. I've been experimenting and noticing some of my "I can't" habits of thinking and I'm playing around with simply switching to "I can" and see what happens. At first it feels a bit strange to do something you have believed all your life you couldn't do and actually just doing it. Feels strange but i'll have to say absolutely liberating at the same time. Up to now I've used the Alexander technique to help me release unnecessary tension throughout my body, repetitive strain injury, neck pain and TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorder, or clicking jaw) but had never experienced challenging my belief system.
So that's my next challenge, breaking down some of my ideas around what I think I can't do so I can actually meet my true potentential.
Looking forward to it.
If you'd like to work on some of these ideas yourself why not come for a course of lessons and start your Alexander journey.
