Ever find yourself walking along in life and then it starts to look like you are going to go through a storm? It gets so scary and things look like its history repeating itself - and part of you just wants to run back to the old safety you know. All those old voices and programing from the past start to shout and scream at you - go back - go back to where its safe - just do all those old things... then you will be safe!!!
Then I find myself looking over my shoulder - oh so tempted to go back... and sometimes I even start to move backwards - I turn around and start to go backwards... I hear those inner voices clamoring for my attentions about how things are going to get worse... you can't take this risk!! You can't win! You can't be happy! You have to fix it for everyone else first or you won't be safe!!!
This is when I have to take a few huge deep breaths and just stop.... take stock of where I am.... really check in.
I have to connect to my higher self - to my course... and in this dark place that can be so hard - because my past and all my old programs are so loud and they really cause a huge din. They want my attention - they want me to go back to them... they want me to be safe with them - because "better the devil you know then the devil you don't"!!!!
Stop!!!!! Take stock!! Breathe!!! Connect!!! What if the devil you don't know isn't a devil but paradise???
Remember - what I am seeing around me in that moment is the result of my past actions and thinking... not my current action and thinking. So is this what I want to keep on repeating? Is this what I want to keep on creating? Its like a stuck record... if I don't change and keep taking these steps forwards and write my life in a new way - I will never experience anything else - I will just keep on repeating my past - my old thoughts and patterns will just keep on proving themselves. I have to give a new way a chance!
I have to keep on reminding myself that the old way is what produced my current reality. New patterns take some time to manifest - they don't necessarily manifest immediately - there is a gap. So I have to give it the time it needs to manifest and just keep on taking the next step - just keep on holding the new focus I want to move towards.
Its like driving at night... we can't see very far ahead of ourselves- just as much as our light beams shine on.
We have our end destination in mind and we keep on driving towards it...even though we can't see it yet - and even though its all dark and scary around us - we don't stop and turn around and go backwards!
So this is life as well... just because its new and things are happening around us is not a sign that its not working - its the sign that there is change - we are entering new territory - and yes - its new and that can be scary - and yes - sometimes we pass through a storm - but they do blow over.
So instead of giving up to the old and going backwards... how about loving ourselves and supporting ourselves on our great and exciting journey forward? Giving ourselves the comfort and reassurance we need to just keep on taking the next step - holding the goal in mind and aiming for it - one step at a time?
This is the only way we are going to manifest the desired outcome and the only way to stop repeating our old patterns!
So today - stop - and take stock... look at how far you have come - rather than how far you still have to go... look at all the things that are showing you just how well you have done - and how things are actually working for you. Don't let the scary things stop you - let them propel you forwards - as they are temporary and they will pass.. just like a storm - and oh - its so beautiful when the rainbow comes out and the sun shines again!! Take shelter in your loving heart and the arms of your angels as they walk with you and encourage you to just keep going!! This too shall pass and then... a new life is there for you with wonderful new experiences.
