I am devoted to designing more surprise and purpose in my everyday life through the following ways:
Young Genius at Work
My Young Genius is safe, connected, and gifted. Bringing "her" to work this week was challenging and eye-opening. I found that those qualities I brought can be comforting for my clients and they also open my gifts to give. My clients can feel when I am fully present and connected. There is a feeling of safety that occurs, which enables us to go deeply into what is needed for healing and finding peace. We do beautiful work together and it empowers us both. It is beautiful and enriching.
What was beyond my familiar zone this week was being more open to my thoughts and feelings, especially admitting deep down my fear (what holds me back in various parts of my life) is that what I'd like to create - my book especially - is going to be extremely difficult and I'm not sure I can go through it again. (I wrote about this a bit last week.) As one can see, it is still here for me.
So, I suppose, going beyond my familiar zone could entail doing it anyway and doing my best to not worry about outcome or having any expectations. The fear of the unknown is a cruel trickster and at times, it holds us hostage. To begin to break free from this hostage situation, I have continued to write and make this blog public and committed to writing my truth with as much loving kindness as I can. It is my hope that it will help others as well.
I don't want going beyond my familiar zone to end either. Trying new things even if I think I won't like it or be good at it will be a good place to begin. Traveling to new places - metaphorically and physically - alone and with those I love and care about. This is something I am really going to have to be conscious of in the coming year so as to not fall back into a rut, and shut myself off from me and the world. Maybe next week I'll do a video instead of writing... it is another way to connect with my clients and the world and it is tremendously unfamiliar to me (not to mention scary).
