Self-Allowance Muscle Memory

All limitation is self-imposed. To have limitation, the individual must embrace ideas that deny their desires. We're taught to do this. It's a learned skill.

Humans don't automatically deny their desires. Humans, in their natural state, promote their desires. In order to deny your desires, you have to practice that behavior again and again and again. It's not unlike the athlete that repeats a motion for years until they no longer have to think about it. After years of practice, self-denial holds a kind of muscle memory. It's so automatic that you don't know you're doing it. You believe there are forces outside of you, denying you what you want, but it's you, denying yourself what you want by believing ideas that limit you.

If you've ever established a habit, such as putting your coffee cup on the table to the left of your chair and then, after a decade, you move to a new home, and the table's on the right side of your chair, you may find yourself trying to place your coffee cup where there's no table. You may ask yourself why you keep doing this. You're an intelligent person, and you're aware that the table is now on the right side of the chair. It's because of muscle memory. Habits have energetic properties. The more you engage in them, the stronger they become.

Globally, self-denial is an extremely strong habit. It's taught in every culture on Earth. But we're in changing times now. The era of self-denial is over. We have to learn to self-allow. Self-allowance is a future-based survival skill. Self-allowing means that you promote ideas that support your desires, despite cultural norms and despite your own habits. This is so unpracticed that you may drop your coffee cup a few thousand times, so to speak, as you place it on a table that's no longer there. In other words, it may seem like your body and mind are uncooperative as you move through this process. It's just the momentum of self-denial muscle memory.

Like self-denial, self-allowance sits on a framework of assumptions. Self-denial assumes limitation as a fundamental reality. Self-allowance doesn't have to, but sits stronger, if you use limitlessness as a basic fundamental of reality. You can get to the assumption of limitlessness by admitting that you don't know the boundaries of reality. It's possible that reality is limitless. Such an acknowledgment unfetters motion and opens the door to possibilities.

In an limitless universe, who are you to limit your own possibilities? You have to concede that those experiences that you desire are possible, even if you don't know how they're possible. You can admit that there may be more options than you thought previously.

This is how you wean yourself into allowing more of what's available to you. What you're doing here is you're establishing new mental and emotional routines. You're training your mental, and physical, muscles in new ways. Your body responds to where you place your attention. It feels different to your body when you self-allow than it does when you self-deny. Physically, your body has to adjust. It does so in increments.

You have the ability to adopt the habit of supporting your desires, no matter what the world looks like around you. You have the ability to become a self-allower. But it took a while to establish those habits of self-denial, and it will take a while to establish those habits of self-allowance. It happens by substituting an idea that affirms your desires for an idea that denies your desires, one idea at a time.
