There are many false responsibilities that we take on which undermine our ability to be in full flow with universal energy and sabotage our attempts to create what we want in our lives.
Here are the 3 of the most common false responsibilities that we take and how to release ourselves from them so that we can work with the universe and get in the flow.
False Responsibility #1 - You are here to help others.
This is the most widespread false responsibility taken and also taught by many spiritual teachers and society.
You cannot create in anybody else's experience but your own. Trying to do so will get you nowhere fast.
Believing that you are here to help others instead of to help yourself will not only disempower you but it will also disempower those you try to take this creative responsibility over.
You can only create in your own experience.
Those of us that help others in a big way do not do it out of a feeling of responsibility for others and duty, otherwise we wouldn't be able to help as we do. We do it because we love what we do - for ourselves, it's for our own experience.
Actually everything worth doing will help not only you but many others too, but the motivating factor should not be guilt, duty nor responsibility, it should be for your own personal growth & fulfilment.
You are here to do what you love doing and to share it with those who come to you. You are to focus on your issues/problems/needs and find solutions to those. You are not here to focus on other people's issues/problems/needs and try to fix them for them, that's their responsibility.
This shift in motivation to focusing on your own personal growth and fulfilment will break you free of a great deal of self-sabotage and will stop you from disempowering others by trying to help them due to lower energy reasons.
False Responsibility #2 - You need to find your customers/opportunities/make sure what you do gets out there.
Try as you might at this you will only hinder the natural flow of those very same things.
The universe has got this one covered due to the law of attraction.
If you try to take over this role and responsibility, you'll dig yourself into holes.
You don't need to do this one, the universe will bring you all the people & opportunities that you are a match to and it will also make sure that the solutions that you offer will cascade down and help even more people too (that's not your responsibility either).
Just be you, do what you do and let the universe bring you those who can benefit from what you do.
False Responsibility #3 - Your role will create your abundance when you do it well enough.
Abundance is not related to your role here at all. It is not a reward for doing a job.
Abundance is available to all, just as water, trees to nest in and seeds are available to all birds without them having to fulfil a role or do a job.
You do not need to prove your worth in order to experience abundance just as you don't need to be able to jump in the air to drink a glass of water - they are completely unrelated.
Society has taught us that they are related, but they aren't, they just aren't.
You can do what you love and experience abundance.
You can do what you love and experience lack.
You can do what you hate and experience abundance.
You can do what you hate and experience lack.
You can do nothing and experience abundance.
You can do nothing and experience lack.
Abundance is something you can align with in and of itself. It is not connected to anything else.
Working for your abundance will keep you in guaranteed lack.
So if you can't work for abundance how can you align with it?
By loving abundance, by wanting to experience abundance, by knowing it's good to experience abundance, by rejoicing all the abundance you see around you, by being grateful for all the abundance you see and experience, by wishing abundance for all others, by believing in abundance and by stopping thinking, saying and doing the opposite of all of those things.
