Do you get caught up in the small things, the psychic debris, the junk drawers of life that claim your focus and direct you down blind alleys, backwaters and dead ends of overthinking, worry, numbing and time wasting?
Millions of videos at your fingertips? Sugary treats? Just one more beer? Endless TV?
Dear ones, what is beneath all this? What do you send to the backroom of your heart and mind? What are you avoiding? Does your body provide clues with pain, stiffness, illness, loss of function, decreasing mental clarity? Do you find yourself stumbling, falling, breaking bones?
Feeling your feelings won’t kill you, cripple you, make you sick or weaken you. Stuffing and ignoring them will hurt you! Your feelings are meant to move and flow through you.
Find help if this seems overwhelming! You are meant to be clear and live fully!
Letting your feelings flow with empathy, understanding and self compassion will set you free!
Has fear settled into your heart and mind? It can suck your soul right out of your body, drain your hope, distract you from your life’s purpose, rob your of happiness, turn you against your friends, sap your strength, and dim your light.
When you gain perspective on your fears, you will learn to discern the false fear of the mind that keeps you debilitated and small, and the real fear of the body and instincts that will keep you safe and help you act when real danger threatens you.
Some would use false fear as a weapon of mass disempowerment. A weapon to keep you in line, to control and contain and diminish your spirit.
Dear ones, I ask you to gather your courage, to call back your power, the inner spiritual power that fuels your life, and look the fear right in the eye. See it for what it is – a product of the mind and ego.
Will you do what you are called to do? Will you acknowledge your fear, then speak confidently in front of a large group, travel to a foreign land, apply for a new job, or speak out when an injustice has occurred? Will you share your gifts with others even though you may be ridiculed? Will you stand up for those who are weaker than you? Will you speak your truth to the powerful?
Like the “Great and Powerful Oz”, when you pull back the curtain, you will see and know the fear for a puff of smoke that’s been magnified and blown out of proportion. You will discover that it is an illusion that will fade when brought to the light and examined.
You are larger than your fear! Gather your courage, spread your wings, and live fully!
Have you seen a picture of the ancient Etruscan tomb painting depicting a young man diving gracefully into deep water – from this life into the next? He dives confidently into the unknown. (see it here)
When you live fully you must also dive without reservation into the life that is called through you. Dive into deep unknown waters of your life, and trust the flow. Perhaps you choose to stay on the riverbank and watch the water go past, wishing you had the courage to enter the powerful current.
Deep fast moving water
If this is so, you can line up your courage! See and feel yourself in your mind’s eye – your body, ready and confident, your balance and posture before the leap, your feet leaving the board or bank, your body slicing gracefully through the water, going deep, then surfacing, taking a deep breath, and swimming easily, letting the current guide and move you forward.
When you choose to face the unknown future and dive into life, you must attune yourself to Source with 100% of your heart, will, and power. In this way you face the unknown with grace, courage, flexibility and spiritual guidance that will never let you down!
Just as the summer swimmers practice again and again, and amuse themselves with tricks, stunts, and huge splashes, you too will get comfortable with the leap into life’s next adventure. Line up your spirit with resolution and dive fully into life with a trusting heart!
