And what about you? Are YOU ready to let go of your little cages??
First, let me apologize to you, my blog readers….I saw the spike in visitors on New Year's Eve & Day…I guess it's become my 'thing' to blog about new beginnings.
This year will be no different I'm sure…so allow me to rectify by posting one of my most popular posts, a New Year's wish filled with cages that continue to follow me today...
Some mornings, I look up at the sky & my view of possibilities & dreams is obstructed by these little cages I've created or 'inherited'.
I know that letting those damn cages go is the greatest gift we can all give the world. And yet, so far all I've managed is to identify a few key cage-dwellers and keep track of them as they float around.
What I need is a good old Cheticamp suete!!
Imagine 2014 as a world where everyone let go of their old baggage, the limiting beliefs, childhood conditioning, judgments & resentments. Imagine all the new connections & possible synergies between us.
Letting go involves starting fresh in the present moment...
Oh, innocent little line!!
That sentence could scare the pants off anyone. I'll be the first to admit that I've held onto problems, unhealthy situations, and outworn roles and relationships because I felt safe in their familiarity.
Here's what I'm thinking. I'm gonna start this thing bit by bit.
(and boy I really meant it when I first wrote 'bit by bit', more like 'reluctantly, at times plunging sideways, backwards and only occasionally, hitting a patch of black ice & accidentally skidding one half step ahead:)
Voila! It wasn't the most ORIGINAL resolution conjured then, but it's mine, so plunge & skid I shall continue.
I plan again to pay more attention to where I resist & where I struggle, and then I'm gonna try to nudge those cages away...starting with those same three particularly pesky cages:
♦ The cage of habits that interfere with writing.
♦ The cage of obsessive thinking & analysing. [Now this should be a good one for me!!]
♦ The cage of old stories & roles & beliefs.
[Everyone knows how much I love stories, but…]
What I'm referring to here are the stories that limit the depth and expansiveness of who we are past roles and stories. I read somewhere that you could imagine taking the old stories and roles off like pieces of clothing & then stepping away from them & leaving the room.
My wish to each of you: May you tune into who you are without your stories. Dig deep to find those core limiting beliefs that are not your highest truth and release them.
May 2014 be the year you share your true self with the world!!
Cheers to one & all!
