As one door closes, another one opens. Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow… Take one step forward and it negates three steps back. Choice…the first place of change. “It was as if the energy of the room shifted once that person walked in.” Shift and the world around you will shift.
     Probably the most difficult thing to do is make a choice that requires conscious change. Every day we are faced with decision upon decision to test the limits of how much we are willing to do for ourselves, do for others, stand in integrity, move beyond fears, and simply grow past where we have been.
     Yesterday my six year old son and I were at a restaurant. He wanted a glow stick so I told him to ask for one. All of a sudden his hands went over his eyes and he said,  “No Mommy, you ask for it, I am scared.” I relayed to him that if you don’t ask for what you want, how will it ever come? He said, “But Mommy I am scared.”  I asked him ‘What is the absolute worst thing that could happen if you ask?’. He was squirming with his hands over his eyes and then all of a sudden everything stopped. His hands dropped from his eyes, he sat still and looked at me. “Mommy, he could say no and I would not get a glow stick.” I looked at him and said ‘ Well,  if that is the worst thing that could happen, then you have not lost anything because you do not have one now.’
     The waiter came up and my son asked for the glow stick. The waiter returned with two glow sticks and my son was elated because not only did he get what he asked for but he received it in abundance.
     I think that intimidating four leter word, FEAR, stands in the way of most people. But when we can move beyond or through our fears, doesn’t the Universe always give us what we really want and many times in abundance? So why not open ourselves up to the possibility and just go for it?
     I find my new motto lately is ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway.’ I have adopted this motto as a means of support to move beyond what have been my pre-existing limits and upper boundaries. We all have set illusory boundaries of what we think is possible, practical, and deserved. What if the potential within each one of us is 1000 times what we currently create in our lives. What if the only thing holding us back is the power of the unknown and our fears around that unknown? What if our greatest fear is actually having what rests beyond our imaginary limits?
These limits will continue to be real until you step beyond them…then the bar will be raised…and you will have to step again.     
The experience of life is one in which we are supposed to challenge and create through our own growth. It really has nothing to do with anyone else…not our families, our friends, our society, or our world. We are our own world. When you take a step to empower yourself and move beyond your fears, you automatically cause a ripple effect which chnages the world surrounding you. What if your stuckness in regard to money, relationships, career, and health are so somply because you are? if you refuse to move the energy, refuse to change and take a step…how is anything supposed to be any different than it is?
I gift to you my motto…”FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY!!! and then simply
BELIEVE…Beyond The Illusion!
