Congratulations if you have taken this step in your life, it means you took that leap of faith. People often play with the idea but never follow it through, making all the justifications in the world as to why they couldn’t. ‘It wasn’t the right time’, ‘I couldn’t afford to’, ‘My family wouldn’t like it’.
Why do we stop ourselves when we feel so deeply about change?
Life can present many challenges and uncertainty, but none so forcefully as when the fresh start makes us face who we really are and what we really want out of life. The journey of consciousness from finding ourselves, to the leap of faith, to a new beginning is about living through knowing, not just believing. When you believe something will happen it may or may not, you are left in question, but knowing is different. At that point you can step forward with certainty and with a new beginning, certainty is a great card to hold. How do we get to this knowing though?
Let’s take a step back for a moment.
Have you ever created a new beginning only for it to feel like you are making the same old mistakes? The same patterns keep emerging?
We may change our job, partner or location but find the feelings inside do not. The clue here is ‘inside’. We may have changed the external environment, but not the internal. If we don’t make the changes inside and walk into a new situation with the same attitudes and the same limiting beliefs, then potentially the same problems will surface once again. The beginning is new but maybe not in the way we were hoping. This can reinforce our belief we are on the wrong path, again!
To break this repeating pattern, we need to connect to ourselves in a deeper, different way, paying close attention to the messages coming through. Messages that will give you opportunities for healing old wounds and clearing the path ahead of you.
How do we hear the message?
Imagine you are in a new job and it’s going great, then people start to ‘trigger’ you with comments or actions and you feel overwhelmingly a need to react and maybe not positively! Reacting though makes you feel bad, but if you don’t frustration follows, either way it’s not ideal and eventually can lead to questioning the job itself. If this repeats, then long term feelings of disconnection to places or people can emerge. The message has not been received. Awareness is the key here to recognise when and why you are being triggered, allowing transition into a more conscious frame of mind.
From this higher state of consciousness we can make our best decisions and assess whether the life we are living needs change. This connection to self is the first step to ‘knowing’ and creating the trust we desperately need. The ‘knowing’ that we will always make the right decision without having to question it endlessly. When connected, your best path in each and every aspect of life will make itself known and when this path becomes evident the fear stops and you will experience life fully. True happiness will follow and your life can begin to flow effortlessly.
