Do you need to make some change in your life? Do you need to do something you don't want to do? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to keep things the way they were? Or even the way you thought things would turn out?
When we come to a turning point--that moment that we make our decision to make a major change--we must use our will to make the choice. It gives us the ability to overcome the stress, the conflict of being pulled in different directions.
We can become free. We become lighter from having made the decision.
Conflict or stress is the feeling you get when you have two directions you want to go or need to go and aren't ready to let go of either.
I want it...I don't want it!
I love you...I want another.
It tastes good...It's full of fat with empty calories.
I want to trust you...You let me down.
I want to stay where I am...I can't afford to stay here.
I need this job...I hate this job.
I want to stay where I am...I want to move on.
I want to try something new...I want to be safe.
I want to stay where I know my way...I want to explore.
If we have our conflicting desires in perfect balance, we can spend our lives waiting to tip the scale one way or another. Life becomes constant stress.
In the book, Designing Your Heart's Desire: The Releasing Strategy, I (Sharon) tell of a former client who came to me when he was about to retire. He had a low level job, never using his college degree because he made a secure living (enough to get by). He hated it though, and yearned to be working in an interesting challenging place. He never married and was pretty much a recluse. He finally wanted to change his life. He had spent his whole existence being unwilling to act. Afraid to move out of his comfort zone, he was never actually comfortable. He was a tragic figure.
I will say that his plight was instituted in his earliest childhood. His family style was similar though not as pronounced. It was his perceptions and judgments about his family that led him down his sad path.
We all have some level of these tendencies. It's our earliest experience as we want to stay in the womb and we want to come into this world.
- I release my belief, perception and judgment that it isn't worth it to risk change.
- I release all fear that I will only make things worse if I change.
- I release all unwillingness to let go of old ways that are holding me back.
- I release my belief, perception and judgment that I will lose all my security if I move on.
- I release all fear that I will choose the wrong path.
- I release all fear that my life will be worse if I make these changes.
- I release all belief, perception and judgment that I will be humiliated or shamed if I change.
- I release all fear of doing the wrong thing, of choosing wrongly, or looking stupid.
- I release my belief, perception and judgment that I won't feel better after I have made a choice.
- I release all fear that I don't have what I need to make wise choices.
