Sometimes we get stuck. We like to think that we are stuck and mired in the mud of life because of someone else, some other thing in life, some circumstance or situation that is beyond our control. All our energies go towards our attention of being stuck. But we truly are stuck because we are seeking the familiar, even if it does not feel good or make us happy. Somehow this familiarity gives us security but that security is a false balm for our needs. “It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”― Alan Cohen But if what we are stuck it no longer holds the possibilities we once hoped for, no longer has our commitment, no longer awakens our passion or supports our intention then it is most definitely time to move on. This letting go takes strength and courage. It means stepping into a new realm of unknown. But we were once there before and from that place we grew! Our gifts shined brightly. Our soul danced. Our vision and calling was clear. And we went with it, as far as we could. And now it is time for a shift, a change and a move. Often to do this we need to let go. Letting go of what no longer serves us is not always easy. It can be bittersweet. It can be down right painful and we will experience loss. But that is part of the evolution of our being, our essence expands and fills the void that the loss creates and we are able to pick up the pieces and move on.
To embrace our power and be vital and alive with the spirit of our life we need to face these challenges and not allow them to hold us back. If we need to take our time, that is fine, but we need to make the progress onward. Otherwise we are in a life half lived! To be fully the wonder that the Universe knows us to be, there may be leaps of faith, calculated risks, releasing of the unnecessary and embracing the room for possibilities. The void created will get filled choices, newness, and opportunities for us to expand and grow.
