“Each of you has a personal map of reality, your own assumptions, a unique philosophy about life, and a personal belief system. One of the challenges I will offer you is to look at your map. What is a personal map? For one person a map may say, “There is not enough love in the universe.”For another, their map may say, “Every time I open up to another person I get hurt.” Your maps are based on your childhood and lifetime experiences. They are based on your experience of how your energy has flowed out and how you have been received by others, especially those you loved or wanted love from.
If any area of your life is not working, one of your beliefs in that area needs to be changed. It is time to either get a new map or revise the one you have. You cannot change by forcing yourself, however. You can change it calmly and firmly telling yourself that you intend to go higher, and that you do not plan to get caught up in the argument or in the issues. It may sound simple, but this is all you need to do to start movement out of the conflict. Once you affirm that you intend to go higher, the universe will begin to show you the answers.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Personal Power through Awareness”
