Making and keeping commitments is one of the hardest things for many to do. You say “I do” and then “I don’t” just as quickly. You land a new position; a few months go by and you’re out job hunting. You click “like” on someone’s profile but won’t commit to actually going on a date with them.
The list goes on. And on.
Sadly, many are more committed to staying stuck than anything else.
Making and keeping commitments brings up some pretty deep, usually subconscious fears hanging out in your primitive, programmed consciousness.
Why commitments are scary
There are core reasons it’s scary to make and keep commitments, all from fear-based subconscious programming.
You may have experienced pain or loss when others didn’t keep their commitments to you, deciding that others disappoint, abandon, or are unpredictable with their commitments. Like when Dad didn't show up for your piano recital; or Mom never brought home that puppy she kept promising.
More significantly, undoubtedly you've broken commitments you made to yourself and others. So now you believe doubt your ability to commit and don't deserve to have others commit to you.
There's no effect without a prior cause.
How Higher Consciousness feels about commitment
On a spiritual level, commitments are a choice to be, do or have from an wise, Higher Self place.
This is very different from committing from neediness, duty and fear where most are made. It's the difference between commitment and attachment. Attachment is a needy place feeling "I'm stuck with this or without this!"
Unfortunately, that's where most commitments are made.
No wonder they don't last very long.
Your Higher Consciousness knows when a commitment is complete, from an intuitive, wise place rather than avoidance, buttons, giving up or fear.
This choice is made unconditionally, without expectations or demands. In other words, it doesn't need to be reciprocal.
Higher commitments come from trusting that whatever form it takes is perfect for right now. Until it's not.
The Higher Truth is you’re already committed- - life is a process of re-discovering your commitments, allowing them to unfold and trusting them as they show up.
The power of making and keeping commitments
To the degree that you make commitments from a Higher Consciousness place, choosing to keep them, pushing through any fears or “logic” in the way, is the degree that the Universe supports them.
Your True power is making and keeping commitments!
Simultaneously, those 'woke' commitments often get tested the hardest in life. Sorry, but the bigger the commitment the bigger the testing.
Ultimately, the testing can make you stronger, more pure, more deserving, more capable and even more committed. If you choose to not buy into fear and run.
When you are 100% committed to yourself, life, your perfect mirror, reflects that Perfectly. In other words, fear of making commitments shows how committed you are or aren’t to yourself.
By authentically living from your truth, making and keeping commitments becomes filled with ease, power and joy.
Commitments are Big Self Love.
