Whenever we decide (and I mean REALLY decide, ready-to-roll decide) to step up into a new and grander version of ourselves, we usually encounter the rumblings and grumblings of our old default behavior which is not going to take being passed by..stepped over...demoted!!! in a light and casual manner.
Our default behavior has been with us for many moons...maybe even eons in the larger scheme of things and it's firmly entrenched in our psyche. When our buttons get pressed, our emotions get T-R-I-G-G-E-R-E-D and we're off and running...running wild, that is.
And, when we finally DECIDE to step up into a change, the battle lines are drawn (our Higher Self draws them with a firm assist from our growing intention and persistent tenacity) and, to describe the situation in contemporary language, let us just say, "It's ON!"
And, as frustrating as all of this is...it's EXCITING, too, because we are about to become newer, stronger, more beautiful, more filled with the Light of Grace.
And it is the PROMISE of that TRANSFORMATION that provides the anchoring for the choice.
We are going to be happier.
We are going to be more satisfied.
We are going to AH - PROVE of ourselves even more.
The "AH" in the previous sentence is there to represent the peaceful place we are moving into and, oh yes, it's quite beautiful...but, just as any explorer encountering unfamiliar territory, we are going to have to face the lions and tigers, the sand traps and swamps.
But remember WE put them there and WE can take them out.
We put them there because we are awesome and creative dreamers who envision a mighty and exciting battle for ourselves as we march forward in our quest to triumph over defeatist, limiting behavior.
And, just like Indiana Jones, who ALWAYS prevails over the troublesome adventures that "befall" him, we, too, are the Stars of our Story and are already equipped with the courage, conviction and wisdom to march into that NEW TERRITORY and claim it as the work of our Soul!
