When we are open and honest with ourselves, we notice that there are situations we would like to change in our lives. In potential transformation moments, instead of expanding into our desired creation, often times we focus on what we don’t want to see and find ourselves in loops of panic and anxiety.
Today we talk about a way to move from what is causing our issues, to movement toward freedom.
The power of the mind is represented in one of the Panic to Freedom principles: story as a story. Instead of being subjected to the confusion of the mind living out an upsetting story, what is stopping us from picking up the pen ourselves and writing our own scripts? Have fun writing the story of your life! As a main character in your life, what connections will you enjoy making, what fears will you conqueror, and what adventures shall you experience?
What does freedom look like to you? How can this freedom be shared?
The Universe twists, turns, and changes constantly, which can be scary. We’re here to tell you: change does not have to be painful, it can be seen as an opportunity for growth. Change is what allows us to transform; without it, we would be stagnant.
At this point it may seem like, “this is all easier said than done.” Let’s face it, in reality there are a number of factors that come to play; bosses, maybe parents seemingly standing between you and that place of happiness. What can we do?
Challenge yourself to interact with what seems to be standing in the way in a calm and collected fashion. There is a always another side, another way of viewing the situation, explore these views.
I’ll recreate an analogy Kirsten shared with me once that seems to fit here. When our perspectives aren’t matched and we aren’t willing to see someone’s side, our hearts become distant. When our hearts are distant, we feel we must yell to be heard. If we have the understanding that we are all doing what we can with what we have, our hearts can communicate civilly.
With so much love,
