Fear. Makes. You. Freeze. It slows everything down. Well it does for me anyway.
Last week, I was pushed waaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone and let me tell you, I was pushed there kicking and screaming! (In the most beautiful way possible). You see, it wasn’t the person doing the pushing causing my body to stiffen, my breath to quicken and my mind to freak out; it was me. Actually it was my ego.
You know her. She can be a right royal bitch with all of her, “you can’t do this”, “you can’t do that”, “who do you think you are?” And to be honest, a lot of the time, she rules the roost.
So back to last week. I have started working with an amazing chicka, Lauren, to learn firsthand how to tune in to my chakra’s, listen to the more intuitive side of myself and a big part of it is because I just felt called to work with her and really, I can’t think of a better reason to be doing this work. I loved our session so much.
So why kicking and screaming then, I hear you ask? Well, that would be because during the end of our session this gorgeous goddess asked me to scan and read her Chakras. And out came my ego… Me. Really? I can’t. I can’t. I can’t.
And I resisted.
I distracted. (Or so I thought)
Lauren held the space and then kindly reminded me I would be doing it before I left… great.
The ego loves you to play small, but how does playing small serve you? Answer: It doesn’t.
I was paralysed (or so I thought) but I pushed through and you know what? It may not have been perfect, but the fact I did it in itself was the biggest accomplishment for me. (Although, my reading was, according to Lauren, pretty spot on!) So often I let my fear stop me. Stall me. Take over.
From now on, I am going to try and take the age old advice of feel the dear and do it anyway! So let’s see how that goes.
Is there somewhere in your life you can take a little leap? Something you have been putting off and want to bring into the world? Let me know in the comments below so I can cheer you on!
