I just led another amazing group of women through my ‘shift into your million dollar zone’ workshop last Saturday. We had so much fun, no one wanted to leave!
Many of them expressed having had some anxiety coming into the workshop as they did not know what to expect. In the end, everyone left lighter, more energized and more courageous than before, with tools under their belt to manage their thoughts and emotions and keep them moving forward through life’s inevitable challenges.
I’ve been leading personal development workshops for over 20 years and something I see over and over is that when we decide to change something, fear and resistance inevitably show up. Our commitment to taking a step and making changes is usually tested. I asked the group if they noticed this and they each confirmed that indeed, there were challenges that had come up. There had been moments and choice points that could have kept them from coming.
The ones who had the biggest challenges had the biggest breakthroughs!
Isn’t that so true of life? The things we fear the most, once we face them and embrace them, are the things that ultimately bring us the most unexpected gifts.
In order to do that it helps to learn the discern the difference between real fear (that is meant to preserve your life) and F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real).
Real fear protects you. Keeps you from people and circumstances that would cause you harm.
F.E.A.R. Limits you. Keeps you small, unhappy and broke. Stuck in repetitive patterns of limitation and lack. But even more devastating, it keeps you from exploring your full potential and engaging fully in this abundant gift called life!
We all have an internal guidance system (Inner GPS) that is meant to guide us through life. To show us the way to our hearts desires and keep us safe. Unfortunately, many of us have not been taught to honor our inner promptings or to trust ourselves more than anyone else. You may have had experiences where you “let yourself down” by not “living up to other people’s standards” and you haven’t forgiven yourself. Circumstances may have led you to believe you are “less than”, “unworthy”, “undesirable” or “not good enough”.
Some of the most important work you will do at this stage of your life is the UN-LEARNING of limitation. Releasing old behavior patterns that no longer serve, and the beliefs that drive them. The ones that are not aligned with what you are desiring to create or experience now.
RE-ALIGNING with your truth, your magnificence, your abundance.
RE-LEARNING to trust, let go, flow, allow, be present, and to love yourself unconditionally.
This is not a journey for the faint of heart. It is a hero’s/heroine’s journey. It is a journey home to yourself. To a state of being that I call the Million Dollar Zone.
You can take this journey with me and other like minded souls no matter where you are in the world by joining my online group program. The next 5 week online class starts Monday October 20th. Click here for all the details and to register.
