What lies on the other side of your fear?
I invite you to consider the possibility that the life of your dreams lies there.
For so long, I stayed stuck within the limiting mental constructs of fear. My fear gave me every excuse to stay in a place that didn't make me truly happy. I was scared to make a change, scared of the unknown, scared I didn't have the skills, knowledge or money to take the proper actions, scared that if I tried, I would fall flat on my face, alone and unsupported by the Universe. So, stuck I stayed. Not to mention unfulfilled...and unhappy.
Actually, the whole role of fear or ego, is to keep you the same and prevent you from growing and changing. Ego loves to keep you boxed into your safe little comfort zone, where you'll never be challenged to try something new or step out of that box. This keeps the ego alive but it also keeps everything...the same. Sameness, is the antithesis of spiritual growth.
Are you looking to spread your wings and grow into the unlimited being that in actuality you already are? Wouldn't you love to be able to visualize whatever you wanted for yourself and then be able to step into that vision, making it your reality?
You can do this, but first you're going to have to loosen the ego's tight grip on your life. You're going to have to strengthen some new spiritual muscles and learn to make change your new normal.
Taking those first few steps is the hardest part of breaking the cycle of complacency. You'll brush up against denial, excuses, resistance and self-sabotage. It's so much easier to give up, throw in the towel and fall into victim mode. ("I'll never be able to make this happen because of x,y,z..." )
With awareness of what tricks the ego mind can play on you, you can properly prepare to make your change. You're going to have to expect that things may have to get worse before they can get better. When any of the denial, excuses, resistance or self-sabotage arise, you can recognize them for what they are and even have a conversation with them. ("Oh yeah, this is me making an excuse when things are getting difficult, but I'm not going to let it stop me this time...")
Do everything you can to prepare to go through the eye of the needle. Build up your strength and your support system by eating healthy foods, exercising and enlisting in the help of friends and family. Tell them what you plan on doing and ask them that they assist in holding you accountable. If you don't have anyone to help you with this, write yourself letters of encouragement that you can re-read when you are feeling low.
With more and more people in this world suffering from depression, we should keep in mind that our feelings and emotions are our body's form of communication with us. Instead of suppressing these feelings or looking to substances, TV or other distractions to numb us of our pain, we can learn to honor the feelings we have. Allow your feelings to guide you to make the proper changes that will lead you to your amazing life.
After years of resistance to change myself, I finally gave up the fight. Although it wasn't easy, I can certainly say that the Universe didn't allow me to fall flat on my face. I had to take that first step into the unknown however, while being unable to see my final destination. With each step I took, another stepping stone was placed before me, until finally, I found solid ground in my new manifested reality.
Isn't it time to stop letting fear hold you hostage? Are you willing to stay living complacently and staying stuck in the same old patterns?
Your soul longs to be set free. Don't let those dreams and visions you have for yourself be mental castles in the sand. It's time to gather up your courage and make the changes you are being guided toward once and for all.
It's time to pass through YOUR eye of the needle and finally experience what's on the other side of your fear.
