From Clear to Fear and Back Again
You know how it is. You have clarity. You’re inspired. Your heart moves you. You know it’s the truth. You’re at peace and like the song says, “On a clear day you can see Forever”. A quiet joy fills you and you begin to see the first action steps that will bring your heart’s desire to life. You may even take a step or two. You can’t help but notice that you’re, well … dare you admit it? … Happy?!
What others think is none of your business
You know how it is. And then.. and then a shrinking darkness pulls you back and whispers, “but what about (fill in the blank with a who or what)?” “You can’t do that!” “No one wants to hear you.” “What about the kids? the laundry? what about all of your responsibilities?” “They’ll think you’re a loser. They’ll think you’re not responsible. They’ll think …” Yes, they will think.
You know how it is. You’ve successfully negotiated with fear’s reasoning and logically worked your way out of the terror that squashed your truth. You fall numb to its deafening effect on the Still Small Voice within.
You know how it is. You get grumpy, irritable. Everything feels off and no one can do anything right around you or for you. You toss it off to a “bad day” or Mercury retrograde. You tell yourself, “I’ll feel better when it stops raining.”
