Do you ever feel stuck? Like you are not living the life you want to be living, but you don’t know how to change that?
For me, when I sit and feel into it, I often find that this means I am in a lot of fear of moving forward. Too scared to take the next step, to try something new. Caught in the fear of uncertainty ‘is this the right thing to do’, ‘what if it doesn’t work’, ‘what if I am not good at it’, ‘what if it is a mistake’, ‘what if I fail’, ‘what if I succeed’, ‘who do you think you are’.
I can get quite stuck, even paralyzed in all of my self-doubt.
I have become aware that in the past I wanted to know how it would end before I could begin. Impossible! Plus that would take away all the magic, all the mystery, the unfolding. And, slowly, I have learnt that all I have to do is begin.
This beautiful quote by WH Murray goes on to talk about how, when we get clear on our vision, our dream and we commit to it, by telling others and taking action, then providence steps in. I love that feeling, when I get clear, back myself, back my dreams, follow my heart and providence arrives, grace arrives and I just meet the people I need to meet, all kinds of synchronicities start to happen, doors open and in some cases doors close. There is ease, a flow to life. The fear drops away.
Oh..it was always comes back 🙂, at least for me. And I have learned that when it arrives again I can comfort it, or as Elizabeth Gilbert says ‘I can welcome my fear and self-doubt to get on the bus with me, as it is going to anyway, and I can also let it know that it is not going to be in the driving seat’. It’s not going to stop me. Courage is not the absence of fear it is feeling the fear and doing it anyway. And this has been my own personal experience over and over and over. It has birthed a new career for me. It has birthed a new way of being in the world for me. It has birthed Conscious Woman. And I have watched many of my conscious girlfriends begin new and meaningful businesses and careers, new relationships, new creative pursuits, new hobbies, new ways of being in the world.
Whatever you can do or dream you can. Begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!
What’s your dream?
What can you do to begin today?
With great warmth
