Why is it sometimes so difficult to move forward? Lately I have a vision of where I am going. I have my next book outlined. I know what I want to say and I know I have it in me to write it and yet I just can’t seem to bring myself to get very far. I think about it and then procrastinate.
I know that the only way forward is through the resistance, but that seems to just create more resistance in me. It isn’t writer’s block because the inspiration is there calling me. The truth of what I want to say resonates so deep within my heart and soul – and I think maybe that’s what scares me.
I think that perhaps I am scared of what it means to go to the next level. Once I pour my truth onto the page I know that it will be up to me to share it with others. It will be up to me to be an advocate for my own work. I know that more and more will be required of me as I grow into a bigger version of myself. And that’s scary.
It is scary to know that in order to get to where you want to be you have to be willing to completely change. You have to be willing to let go of who you are so that you can become who you are meant to be. You have to be willing to stretch out of your comfort zone. You have to be willing to go beyond a feeling of safety and security.
A lot of things hold us back in life. Right now my ego is trying to protect me from the might of who I really am. My body wants to stay safe while my soul begs to soar. The soul has no worry for it knows that no harm can come to it – it is the ego that is responsible for the fear. I feel this calling and all the while I have the breaks jammed on tight afraid to go.
I know that surrender is called for – that it is time to let go and be uncomfortable. I know that it is time to honor my intuition and listen to my heart. I know that I have to learn to fly and, just as we fall a lot when we learn to walk, my first flight is going to be a bit bumpy. It’s time to say yes.
Learn how to listen to your heart to follow your calling into life. With all growth you will be met with resistance. You must navigate the Paradox of Resistance to bust through the ego’s fears that are holding you back and follow your heart down the path of least resistance.
