How many opportunities may have passed us by when fear has held us hostage? How many times have we gotten so excited and inspired about something only to either talk ourselves back out of it… or have someone else plant fears and doubts for us. They may feel as if they are protecting us from failure or disappointment, but yet they are also putting a damper on life experience and possibility!
And here we have true transformation presenting itself. And yet we feel that little niggle of fear and doubt, presenting itself in the all too familiar form of the terrible and insidious “What if’s”… what if I fail? What if, what happened last time, happens again? What if no one likes me, or my work? What if there is someone who is better than I am? What if I make a mistake? What if I regret it?
Time to take all your what if’s, and blow them all into the biggest hot air balloon you have ever seen. See them power the balloon, the more fear you add, the bigger it get. Straining against the ropes that hold it to the ground. Keep filling the balloon with as many doubts, fears, blocks, what if’s and any other setbacks you can think of until it is literally bursting at the seams. When you are sure you have put every single last one in there, plus a few extra stragglers who were clinging on to you for dear life…. cut the cords and set that balloon free. Watch it sail through the sky, up through the clouds and right up into the Sun. To be purified. To be set free. Take a few moments to center yourself and breathe. Feel your feet on the ground. Feel the alignment of your spine. Feel your energy centers pulsing with bright colourful lights. Feel your new lightness of Being.
One more deep breath and take that leap of faith. Knowing with conviction that failure was never an option. That life is to be lived to the fullest. That you are here for a very important reason. And you are about to live that in full glory.
With grace and ease.
We are here to catch you.
We are cheering you on.
