The idea of making a difference is all well and good, but it takes inspired action and on purpose energy. Things will go wrong. You’ll lose your enthusiasm. Finding the time and the money to make it work isn’t all glitter and rainbows. Unless you’re in touch with your “Big Why” – the larger possibility of your vision – the work you’re doing to manifest your vision will turn into a burden.
Our basic human nature does not like risking. We like comfort, what is known and predictability. However, when you are wanting to manifest a big dream or vision or sacred calling this vision is NOT going to support the status quo.
When you realize you will be stepping outside your comfort zone, this awareness can bring up fear of taking the risk to speak out and show up in a different way. And what are you risking? Ridicule perhaps. Judgment that you are not still ‘falling in line.’ And fear that no one will join in with you – and you will be alone – to name a few.
Once Upon a Time, when you first came into this world…Your connection to the Divine Source was fully present. You did not question it. You not only knew who you were but what your purpose was in this life. Your Soul entered this lifetime with knowledge of your greater destiny and with the point of view of learning greater and greater levels of loving.
I had just moved my family (two children, husband and a dog) to the mountains of New Mexico leaving behind my provincial, privileged, comfortable and safe lifestyle in the South. I knew in my gut that big shifts were afoot. I had no idea that I would be the one to run head first into not only doing something I had never done before but experiencing ‘other’ realities.
