Have you ever wondered why some people can see something as easily possible, and achieve it with ease, while others perceive the exact same thing as impossible, and that’s what it remains?
For some, earning tons of money in a way that’s fun and uses all of their gifts is the easiest thing ever. And for others it’s the thing they wish for, but believe they’ll never have.
For some, traveling the world, creating your own schedule, and living your dreams is just an automatic part of their lives. And for others, it’s the lifestyle they hope they’ll some day have, but have no idea how they’ll get there… if they ever do.
So what separates one person from the other? What plants the possibility into one person’s head, and the impossibility into the head of the other?
That impossibility? It’s really just an illusion.
This illusion is fear. It’s scarcity and lack. It’s thinking we’re not safe. And it’s believing we can’t have love, or we can’t create anything we want.
You see, beyond what we can see in plain sight, there is a whole other world. A world of Spirit, a world where love is all that exists, a world where everything is energy, and a world where humans have the power to create anything they can conceive of.
And no, it’s not some magical fairy-land with dancing unicorns and calorie-free lollipops that doesn’t exist. That place might be fun to visit – but the place I’m talking about is way better.
It’s the place of Spirit. No, not some man in the sky who rules down on others — but Spirit that is the greater energy of all-that-is that reminds us of the all-ness that we are.
Exactly. What. We. Are.
Except you’re human. You’re navigating the growing pains of expansion, and learning as you go.
And some days, even if you’re wise enough to remember that the fear is an illusion, it’s as if there’s a wall between you and the expansion, and the only thing you can feel is fear holding you back.
And the essence of expansion is that it’s ever-growing; you’re ever-growing. The more you grow, the more growth you realize awaits you. With every fear you move through and past, a new fear greets you.
And as we move close to the New Year, there’s so much you desire, so much expansion you’re hoping for.
So how do you do it? How do you keep this year from being like previous ones, where you get stuck in the illusion and can’t always break through the fear?
In honor of your upcoming 2016 expansion, and my desire for you to see past the illusion and experience the full expansion you’re calling in, here are a few strategies to help you stay in the knowing of what’s possible, and create from that space:
- Get back into your body.
When fear takes hold, and it becomes difficult to tell what’s real and what’s not, we have one thing that is the most real in our human experience – the bodies we live in. Come back home to yours. Feel your feet on the ground. Notice one bone and one joint supporting the next. Feel your breath and your blood flowing. The clarity on what’s real and what’s truly possible can only be restored when you’re back home, inside yourself.
- Create space amongst the chaos.
When the word “impossible” rings more true for you than “possible”, chances are there’s too much “stuff” in your way. The ease of what’s beyond the illusion arises in the open space to see it. So step away (no matter how impossible that may seem in the moment), be still, and create space in your life, your environment, and your own body. The knowing of the possibility, and any insight you may need to achieve it, can only come in when it has room to do so.
- Look to nature.
All of the things we want are found in nature. Freedom, expansion, abundance, purpose, love – it’s all there. So when in doubt; when you’re unable to determine what’s real and what’s not, look to one of our greatest teachers of what’s possible in this life – nature. And the double whammy there, is that by stepping out into nature, it will also support you in clearing out the cobwebs and old thoughts that have been keeping you stuck in the illusion, and soon have you feeling closer to Spirit, and closer to your true self again.
Remember, if you desire it, it’s probably possible. And if you can conceive of it as being possible, it is. So keep striving to see beyond the illusion, and allow in the the support, resources, and ease that’s been waiting for you all along.
