Soul Correction: Finish What You Start New insight 5/20/2017 courtesy of a student:

He says it so well… and it is hard to formalize it, so I only attempt to do it here and now. The issue is with finishing it is that what started out as choice becomes, at a certain point, a prison, and a vise. Limiting. The pressure. Unpleasant. Escape. In hope of an easier life. In hope of excitement, stimulation. If I had to risk an assessment what is weak, underdeveloped, and therefore the cause of this self-defeating behavior, I would say two things: 1. TLB… the person with this soul correction needs to do deliberate practice to increase their ability to be with pressure… any type of pressure, emotional, physical. Standing power. It can be increased, it is not a constant. 2. Once the person can see that TLB can be increased, it will pull with it, hopefully, their whole mindset into the growth mindset. Because one of the unpleasant things they, in unevolved stages can’t be with, in the fixed mindset, that they are not already perfect, that they are not already a genius. They need to turn that into “I am perfect in the making, a genius in the making” the way the growth mindset people’s self-speak is. This way they can divert their attention from themselves to what they are doing… hah, that will be the day I dance.


Update 7/10/2016: The archetype is the flatterer scam artist. If you are their victim: They will hook you with their compliments, flattery, while suck you dry, take you for your last dime, without ever caring about you, and without ever delivering on what they said they would do. If you are the person with this soul correction: You find yourself with projects half started, never finished. You find yourself getting enough satisfaction out of buying a self-improvement program, but you don’t actually listen to it or use it. Your self-image is “insignificant.” Maybe even weak, inconsequential, not important. Or you suffer from delusions of grandeur: you are or should be the best the best looking, the smartest, a hero… except that you are literally unwilling to do the work to make it happen… What’s in the way is that pesky “should already” be that. Or “it should be easy for me, even if it is hard for others” You instinctively know who is a sucker, and you latch onto them. I must be a sucker: you are attracted to me… Why? How? I am sensitive to your flattery… that is MY weakness, and you know it.

piling up the debts to the Universe

It’s all a game. Once you start working with your soul, you’ll see that it is an invented way: to avoid being responsible, avoid risk, avoid being seen, avoid life. You bore a hole in your system to leak energy so you never have to measure up, never have to do anything, really. You keep up appearances by signing up, but to follow through? Not you. You may look bad, or people will find out that you can’t… or worse than that, they will find out that you can. In simple and plain words: you are a con artist. You may have even fooled yourself. You are miserable. The inauthenticity ((inauthentic=not authentic. Authentic means: you are the same through and through. No fake, no pretense, no facade, it is you… transparent)) of your life, the lack of integrity, and the constant nudging from the soul keep you out of balance, and unhappy. You are the could have, should have, would have person. Your choice: continue what you have been doing, or start facing the fact that from time to time you are going to look bad… that you will be tired, disappointed, sad, happy… alive. What are you going to choose? A lot of us would recognize this as a character defect. But it is not necessarily the behavior that we recognize that is the soul correction here. The real soul correction is something really under the radar. You make promises to the Universe that are sent out as an IOU, a bond. You cash it in (use the Light) and then you don’t pay up. You don’t deliver. You are in serious arrears with the Universe and unless you start meaning what you say, unless you stop falsifying results, unless you are willing to be weighed and fall short, you are going to play this game… which is, ultimately, will kill you. Now, what will you choose? Life or death? Seriously! So what is there to do? You need to have your debt, your undelivered promises cleared up. How do you do that? Find one trusted associate or friend who won’t judge you for what you have done. Won’t let you off the hook either. But help you do your soul’s correction instead. Make a list of all the ways you have been deceiving the Universe, shortchanging the Universe, and “own it”. The way to own anything is to say what you did without any . means that you are the victim, which is letting yourself off the hook. Instead you want to say: I did that. I did that. I did that. Be specific. It is a finite list: you’ll be done before you know. When you are done, item by item, burn the pieces of paper with the list. Then commit to play straight. No lies, no over-promising and under-delivering, no unfinished projects. No falsifying. No games. No lies. No falsehood. Then honor your commitment. If fall off the pony, you repeat: own it, burn it, recommit. Then, prepare to be surprised. All the shenanigans of before gone, your fortune finally will start to look up and you will be rewarded for what you do. If you are willing to do what you promise to do, it will be enough for what you seek. I guarantee it. For other soul corrections, visit this page.
