"Before any garden can be seeded, the ground has to be prepared. The rocks and weeds need clearing, the earth has to be turned and the nutrients introduced. Starting to live life on your terms is the same. You have to clear the clutter from your life, internally and externally. You have to create the right environment to be able to grow your vision." Lynne Franks
The last few months for me have had an element of frustration attached. Why? Its like all the things around me are getting a re-vamp. From the bathroom leaking, puncture in a car tyre, tv puffing smoke, iPad dropping out of its cover and glass smashing, oven stopped working to tenants moving on after 7 years !!! Not only is it financially draining but mentally and emotionally it has also been challenging. Ive felt like Im going around in circles.
BUT as I believe everything happens for a reason, I decided to do a session on myself to see what was holding this pattern in place. Heres some of the beliefs I needed to balance.
Its safe to let go.
I deserve to love others.
Its possible to forgive men.
Doing my best is the best I can do.
It is always interesting that when we explore into why something is happening the way it is, often the issues healed are nothing to do with what is showing up now.
A few days ago, a client presented with " I can't get a job, whats wrong with me?" The real issue that was balanced was a situation that happened years ago where they felt left out by friends and never chosen.
Yes weeding can be frustrating and challenging.
Yes it feels like its never going to end.
Yes it feels like you are the only person its happening to.
Yes it can be painful.
You are about to make some major changes that will affect the rest of your life. And until the weeds are pulled your vision will stayed blurred, your energy will be low and it will feel like you are moving forward through a deep mud pond.
Weeds can come in many different forms.
Its a good idea to take a moment with a piece of paper and write about your fears.
What are you afraid of? Who are you afraid of? Where are you afraid to go? Do you have chaos happening so it allows you to feel important or loved? Do you not go to events because you don't feel good enough to take part? Do you get angry quickly which keeps people away?
Is it time you started to pull some weeds so you can grow your vision?
