How many times has someone tried to put new patches on an old garment and found the new patches quickly falling off? It’s a metaphor. You cannot take with you any part of the old you, when you are creating yourself anew. And if you’re intending to create a new reality for yourself, it begins with creating a new you.
If you insist on holding tight to any part of the old you, that becomes a weight that pulls you down to who you used to be.
It’s been written thousands of times that if you intend to declare yourself a rich person, in any area of life, you’ve got to let go of all beliefs, tendencies, habits and patterns that have you feeling impoverished and poor. Now, the question becomes, How do you do that?”
To let go of the old requires taking your attention off every reminder that has you wailing out, “Woe is me.” Place your attention on feeeeling what it would be like if you were wealthy in that domain of life that calls to you.
As the feeeeling of inner-richness becomes more familiar, you find yourself naturally creating a grander concept of yourself – a concept that makes it easy to attract what was abstract. Your new self-concept naturally motivates you to act in new ways that make the fantasy fact.
You aren’t going to make real, anything new until you let go of the old you. The invitation is found in ancient script: “Ye must be born again.” Drop the old garment you’ve been wearing (the old personality). It’s time to try on something new. That’s what you do when you are ‘born again’.
A new ‘you’ creates a new vibration that rids you of old limitations.
