I love raspberries.
I just love them. One of my treats in the summer was to pick fresh wild raspberries up at our family house in Maine and then bake raspberry pie. Hot raspberry pie with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. YUM!
For so many years, decades, I didn’t allow myself to buy raspberries because they were too expensive.
I could splurge on other things, but not raspberries and not flowers. For some reason these things just seemed too extravagant to me.
Yes, it’s true raspberries used to be more expensive than they are now.
It’s true that orchids and flowers, were more expensive than they are now.
AND it’s also true that money was worth more than it used to be which means they were really, accounting for inflation considerably more expensive than they are now.
Still, the issue wasn’t the extra cost, it was really that I didn’t believe I was worth it. I thought I didn’t deserve to splurge on myself in that way. I could splurge to be self-destructive, but not to just give myself a treat.
It’s crazy the way the mind works out these things.
My invitation to you is to look at what are the little things you might be denying yourself because of a worthiness false belief.
We can undo these false beliefs by addressing them directly.
I started buying orchids.
I started buying raspberries.
I AM worth it!
Now, worthiness doesn’t enter into it – if I feel like having raspberries I get them. I am grateful for my healing and share the benefits of every morsel of healing I have with YOU because I’m one with you. Please do the same for me and for all beings!
