In honor of Louise Hay’s work on turning should into could in her beautiful book You Can Heal Your Life.
This is a powerful intention, switching the word should into could. Toxic shame creeps into our feeling state when we are using should a lot. We have been given doors by Spirit into healing our wounds. This is a Sacred door which helps us shift out of toxic shame into healthy potentiality and ownership. And from this place the shame we may feel, if needed, goes more and more into Healthy Shame.
Be open to...
I could... if I choose to. I could... if this is aligned with me. I could... if this helps create balance in my life. I could... if this is part of my path or spiritual calling. I could... if I feel this is part of what I need to learn from. I could... if I feel this is a needed bridge to the place I am trying to reach.
Could becomes open potential. Offers the possibility of transformation. Yes, we came to experience the different elements that are part of living and part of life in order to learn; this is one of those elements... could.
It is time to aid ourselves in healthier ways of being. Making the conscious decision to be mindful of using should... it is time to see the magic in our lives and the magic in our choices. Also remembering this does not opt us out from being responsible for our lives or our choices. We can heal and be responsible.
It is our belief that we are humans having a Divine learning experience, that these things serve our Soul’s lessons and the Sacred is interwoven into our journey. We are encouraging you to open up to the powerful experience of transforming should into could.
How does it feel to hold the knowing that everything in your life is serving your Soul’s needed lessons, even what may be considered bad or wrong? The more you can open up and trust that all is serving you in some way, even if you cannot see it, the more the Divine can work in your life. The Universe is always working on your behalf, even when it does not feel like it.
