It’s a lot like you know where you want to go but you don’t know exactly HOW you are going to get there or WHEN you will get there.
I’ve been following my dream to: “Inspire 4 440 000+ kids to follow their dreams” for about 18 months now and I’ve taken a lot of different roads to get where I am and come across a lot of obstacles on my way! Most of these obstacles have been my own ‘baggage’ or unhelpful fearful beliefs that have been limiting me. Each time I come across one, I think, “Oh no, not another one” and at the same time, “Good I must be getting closer!”
To get rid of my baggage I sit and listen to everything Shady (my inner fearful self) believes about whatever it is and then express all the bottled up feelings I have held onto that go with that belief. Then I fill myself up with Sparky’s love (my inner loving self) and ask Sparky “What’s good?” and “What now?” then I do what Sparky says (and yes it always takes courage)!
Recently I let go of the belief that: “My best friend would not agree with my Shady vs Sparky content.” It was one of the most courageous things I have done! I did my ‘Meet Sparky’ and ‘Meet Shady’ meditations with her on a beautiful headland and she said, “Thanks Kath I can see that that could really help kids, I really connected with my Shady and felt her pain!” I burst into tears. She went on to say that it was not totally in alignment with her beliefs but she thought it would definitely help!
Best friends have a way of really seeing you don’t they? Make sure you listen to yours because “yes” they challenge you but man they help you grow!
