When something happens in our lives, whether it be in our childhoods or as adults, and whether it be one thing or a number of things, we can become “stuck”.
You might recognise this description. You might have felt the symptoms of your own lack of alignment with who you truly are and maybe you have questioned how you get the person you truly are back. Perhaps you are feeling the heartbreak of losing her right now as you read this.
Perhaps you have become busy in life to avoid everything you feel in your heart. I know personally that there is tremendous fear in feeling a difficult feeling. So, we do avoid it. For many people staying busy is how they’ve coped for years and I see them, in survival mode. I want to tell them, tell you, that becoming a #RecoveredSurvivor, like me is possible. That is why I began the #HummingbirdMovement.
In my own state of “survival”, my thoughts cleverly prevented me becoming vulnerable again (I was a victim of rape in 2004), but they also stopped me showing up purposefully, powerfully and authentically in my life to make the difference that lights a fire in my soul.
We are a product of our past and our story because of how our brains go collecting up every experience we have had and filing it away like some big old supercomputer. Our brain will always call on these experiences when it comes to making decisions and taking action, so how do we let the voice of our Soul come through? Where do we find the strength and courage to take the action that answers the call of our Soul Goal in the face of the fear when our brain is wired for our safety, security, and self-preservation, and so it will always direct us away from pain?
The anticipation of pain is the definition of fear.
When we listen to the voice that tells us that “we can’t, we shouldn’t, we aren’t good enough”, we are safe from the pain of our past, but we are not living in our present and we are not creating our future. If your greatness is in your heart, how are your thoughts created by your fear keeping it locked from you?
In my book, Life Through a Lens, I teach you how to become stronger than the fear that is holding you back. This begins with your focus. The goal is to become focused only on the joy of life and positivity and focus away from the fear that is holding you back.
“See the threat or see the opportunity”, as the saying goes.
I finally chose to see the opportunity. It required me to face the pain in my heart, but in feeling all of it I discovered my purpose.
