I’ve been thinking a lot lately about those of you that have shared your challenges of getting the results you say you want in your lives. I venture to say, it’s because you’re getting in your own way…
This self-sabotage occurs because as much as you say you want more, more love, fulfillment, connection, freedom and liberation from the bondage you live in, there is some part of you that is UNWILLING to get uncomfortable or be in unknown territory to get more of what you want.
You, along with most human beings resist discomfort and resist taking the leap into that unknown territory of possibilities by unconsciously leaning into familiar/known patterns to distract you from your desires.
Your patterns may be feelings of overwhelm, confusion, drama, attachment to your stories, illness and resignation, all of which deter you from entering the wilderness to LIBERATION. At all costs, you stay safe in your pain or your distractions so that at the end of the day you get to be “right” that your life and your circumstances get in the way of having what you say you want for yourself and others. You stop dreaming, and you deny yourself the right to step into that new version of YOU that is fully delightful and capable of creating whatever YOU desire.
Here’s the truth, those of you who are seeking MORE in your life are going to face being uncomfortable and you’re going to find yourself in unknown territory much of the time.
If you’re willing to step up and risk, and if you’re willing to get uncomfortable and unlearn what you’ve learned, then maybe the journey of liberation is for you.
It’s ironic that you let yourself off the hook of experiencing happiness, joy, connection, love, intimacy and liberation by your thoughts of doubt and fear. Bottom line, doubt and fear have a way of insidiously joining you on your journey to liberation. You have the choice to accept that doubt and fear are along for the ride and you get to choose how much power to give them as you journey through the wilderness to find and own your unique and beautiful gifts.
One of my favorite sayings is “The only way out is through.” If you have a genuine desire for more in your life, more love, more connection, more joy, more passion, more energy, more inspiration, more abundance, more gratitude, MORE of whatever your heart desires then you must be willing to BE UNCOMFORTABLE and make your way through the wilderness to get to the other side. This journey is your soul retrieval and it’s where you find MORE.
I can promise you that the journey through the unknown is not nearly as scary as your mind makes it up to be. I can also promise you that it’s TOTALLY WORTH it if you’re ready to live your life beyond your wildest dreams. It is simply a CHOICE to make an investment in your life and in the most important relationship you will ever have, and that’s the relationship you have with yourself, which then effects every other relationship you have in the world.
