I wasn't always able to trust the process or take a leap of faith to try something new. I would spend days, weeks, even months trapped in my mind wrestling with all the WHAT IF's of whatever it was at that moment. When I had enough of my own self chatter I would then look for validation from others for my ideas. At the first sign of uncertainty or dissatisfaction I would drop them like a hot potato obviously unworthy of follow through because so and so said so. This pattern left me frozen from moving forward with things I really wanted to do in my life.
Over many years of shadow work and going deep within to learn to not only hear but trust my own inner voice I am proud to say that I no longer heed the warnings of any WHAT IF for more than a few seconds.
WHY you ask?
Because if you were to look at life as we know it the entire experience could be a WHAT IF - so why waste your time on such pettiness looking for the downside of it all?
What if you were to play it safe, live a mediocre life with a safe job, making safe decisions, keeping it low key only to lose that job anyway?
If you can "fail" at something you don't love then why not just go after what it is you want the first time knowing there are absolutely no guarantees either way?
Why allow fear to run your life when there is a whole other side you openly have access to at anytime you want it? That otherside is called LOVE and it is waiting for you to step into it for yourself, others, and even the frequency of the planet.
When we move with love:
All through a higher frequency that brings about feelings of happiness, self balance, ease and pure gratitude becoming the example for others of what is possible for themselves.
Live as Love, not fear and watch the amazing opportunities and possibilities that begin to show up for you in your life. The more we do this, the better life gets.
I was no longer willing to be held captive to all the what if's in life. Instead I am fully embracing every new possibility with an open mind and an open heart full of LOVE.
