Where Are You Letting Fear Decide Your Fate?
As 2015 draws to a close, you may yourself reflecting on the year that was and considering your hopes for the New Year.
Consider all the ways you protect yourself and keep yourself safe.
What if you could let all that go now?
And create new ways of living and relating to those you love.
If you want to experience new horizons, you have to let go of the shore.
After the busyness of the holidays, find some time to get quiet, move beyond the chatter that happens in your mind, and take a seat within the spaciousness of yourself.
You may have felt overwhelmed by the constant barrage of thoughts, emotions, and sensory inputs that draw on your consciousness.
As you become more present with yourself, you begin to realize that you can go beyond all of your inner disturbances, and witness yourself from a place of quiet and peace that exists within yourself.
Don’t wait for permission.
Allow support to come in.
True freedom awaits for you in 2016.
When was the last time you took a leap of faith?
A time where you weep with gratitude, vibrate with fear, and explode with the joy of being you – all at the same time?
To feel more alive than you have ever, ever felt.
And you know that on this day, because of that leap you took – your life changed forever.
Most of us were never really taught what a leap of faith even means. Or how to do it.
Because women that take leaps of faith are the women who step outside of the conventional, and recreate the world.
It’s not a simple task. It requires tapping into your truth.
Moving beyond fear, and taking a risk.
Most of us are taught to have faith in something outside of ourselves. We’re encouraged to put all of our confidence or trust in something or someone else.
Our parents, our husband, our friends, our boss.
Instead, you can choose a different kind of faith.
Rather than shrink yourself to follow outside limitations, you can take a leap. Choosing to choose yourself, above any other expectations, is your first leap.
How can you believe in yourself if you have no track record?
How can you believe in yourself when no one else does – in fact everyone else tries to convince you that the last place you should look for your next steps is inside your own heart and soul?
A leap of faith is a requirement for everyone who chooses their own aliveness.
As Elizabeth Gilbert says in her book, Big Magic,
Too many women still seem to believe that they are not allowed to put themselves forward at all, until both they and their work are perfect and beyond criticism. Meanwhile, putting forth work that is far from perfect rarely stops men from participating in the global cultural conversation. Just sayin’ . . . sometimes, strangely enough, it works – a man who seems not ready for the task, not good enough for the task, somehow grows immediately into his potential through the wild leap of faith itself. I only wish more women would risk these same kinds of wild leaps.
She goes on to say the way we have been treated in all of human history as the reason that women do not take big risks, like men. And concludes, “…we women must break this habit in ourselves – and we are the only ones who can break it.”
We can do this. We must do this.
We do not have time to spend reviewing other people’s expectations.
The true nature of a woman does not ignite until she has made her desires her north star, in the direction of her truth and deepest desires.
The important part of a leap of faith is to just jump.
Bit by bit.
You will gain momentum with practice.
I will hold space for you.
Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild & precious life?
