The emotion of “Guilt” can be paralyzing for some people. A person can feel guilty for something he did, for something he did not, for something he thought he did, or for believing not doing enough.
Guilt lowers the life energy. It reduces vitality. It drains the immune system and diminishes the capacity of being inspired or creative.
I came across these 4 most valuable principles. They are timeless and they helped me to overcome guilt and regret. They are derived from ancient Indian scriptures and simplified my life when negative emotions sabotage my abundant mindset:
- Whatever will happen, has to happen that way.
- Whom you meet in your life, you meet for a certain reason; not by accident nor chance.
- Whatever has to begin at a certain time, will only begin at that time; neither before nor after.
- Whatever is over, is over. Don’t hold on to the past.
The opposite of ‘guilt’ is ‘deserving’.
When we understand that we deserve fulfillment, a fountain opens and allows us to receive fulfillment. There is always a base ready to flow. We can create or maximize the faucet.
When was the last occasion in your creative process when you felt fulfilled? Can you identify what blocks it? Maybe it is guilt. Maybe these 4 principles help you too.
Be the owner of your creative process!
