Breaking Out of Self Imposed Limitations

Happy Harvest Moon! As I write this newsletter under the light of the full moon we traditionally call the Harvest Moon, it is a perfect time to reflect on all we have harvested this year and look forward to enjoying this and thinking about how we want to grow from here.

So as we think about what is next for us, one of our biggest challenges is often breaking free of self imposed limitations. How many times have we had an opportunities that we stopped ourselves from taking?

We often do that because we fear failure. It is important to differentiate between foolish risks and calculated risks. How many times have we kept something on the back burner for years even though spirit keeps popping it into our mind. The questions to ask ourselves are these.

Our spirit guides are bringing things to our attention, but are we listening? When the same subject continues to be on the back burner and does not disappear, someone wants us to notice. So, at some point, we either dismiss the idea or move it to the front burner and make it an active part of our life.

There are some things in life that we need to master in order to advance. Some are essential. Others are simply free will choices, but the lesson is still about mastering knowledge and techniques in order to advance. When we drop the roadblocks and quit censoring ourselves, amazing things happen in our communication and that is called magic.

It is a matter of feeling, that feeling we get in our gut when we are making a choice. Feelings are spirit's way of guiding us, rather than using intellectual explanations.

Say YES more often in your life. When spirit brings something to your attention three times, check it out rather than put it on the back burner. You will always have a choice of saying this is not for me or making it part of your next level of activity and development.

Notice how a flow of energy opens when you finally make time for that which you have put off, but now feel ready for. You feel a resonance when you hear about something and you know it is of interest to you. When you feel that, say YES. This sets the energy in motion. If someone asks you to dance and you say "no I can't dance," Who just stopped you?

If someone offers you a business opportunity, if you don't feel your energy in it, then it is not the best way to go. Choose the way that encourages you to feel good every day. It is always true that there might be other ventures we might be in that would make more money, but do we really want to do that? When you get an offer that really suits you, you feel it right away. One word for this feeling is intuition. It is also one of the languages our spirit guides use to speak to us because feelings are more universal than words, and therefore clearer connections.

Once we feel that we want to be in a relationship, a job, an activity or a group, then our next step is how to become part of that and do it splendidly.

So our spirit guides are pointing the way and then it is up to us to use our use our will to make progress. The two together produce synergy, a combined energy, and desire is the fire in our engines. All of this is conscious choice. It is when it fits with that YES feeling in the pit of your stomach with no reservations, that you can be confident that you are making the right move.

After all, think about how we know things. We try new things and decide how we feel about it and we stick with those things that give us greatest satisfaction. And feelings drive our desire to learn, so pay attention to this language that spirit uses to speak with us.

Any time any one of you contacts me, it really helps make my day whether you want to make an appointment or just to keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. I like hearing your stories of what has been happening since the last time we met. And of course, I am always ready to help with what is next. Let this note help make your day. I love you.
