Fear

by Monica on January 20, 2010 · 0 comments

I’m barely ankle-deep into an online class I signed up for on a whim earlier this month, but already I can feel the wheels turning in this rusty old brain ‘o mine.  As I type this, I may have even made the decision to do something pretty freaking drastic, that may or may not have the people in my life thinking I’ve lost my mind.   After all, stepping outside the box of the norm is crazy, right?

The women teaching this class have awoken a place in my heart that knows that, deep down, anything is possibleanything *is* possible. repeat. after. me.

Today when I logged into the online class, I read: 

There is an unseen life that dreams us; it knows our true direction and destiny.  We can trust ourselves more than we realize, and we need have no fear of change. 

It was a quote from John O’Donohue and it had been rebirthed into a beautiful piece of watercolour art by one of the women guiding the class.  It was perfect in its timing today, answering a question that had been rolling around in my mind all day.

What if you could take away the voices inside your head that kept holding you back from what you really want?  What if those voices fell silent and the ones offering you empowerment to do what you truly desire were the only ones left in existence?  What if our fears actually weren’t OUR fears?  What if they were created by those before us, and we adopted them as our own along the way?  Hmmm.  This is what I’ve been pondering quite thoroughly today.

I feel like I’ve discovered the magic key to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  Only it came in the form of an online class all about dreaming big dreams.  It’s amazing what can happen when you surround yourself with other like-minded people who speak the same language of anything is possible

Because, perhaps, it is.
