I woke up this morning from a dream that I had run out of money. I’m not one to take dreams literally, yet this one came with a particularly strong desire to translate its meaning. I figured a storyline as drastic as this was just begging for my attention. So I sat down on the floor and meditated on it. And as usual, as I tuned into my inner guidance I was able to reach some powerful insights almost immediately.
One of the things I’ve learned lately is that I can think that I believe in something, yet unless I totally walk the talk, I can see that I don’t truly believe. This dream I had today forced me to take a look at how I was approaching my work. This reflection enabled me to see that I was holding myself back from truly claiming the role I want to play. I see now that in order to claim a new role, I have to let go of the one that I want to grow from. This is a mental shift I need to make. I can’t claim my success and doubt my aspirations at the same time. These two states cannot co-exist.
As I looked more closely at what was getting in my way of claiming success, I recognized some fears about reaching for the brass ring. What if it doesn’t work out the way I envision? Then what? Yet this was exactly the thinking that kept me clinging to my corporate job for so long. That is, until I was able to see that if it didn’t work out, I could always go back and get another job. You wouldn’t believe what a revelation that was! So today I told myself that if my work dream doesn’t pan out, I can always let go of it knowing that at least I’d tried.
My dream today led me to the awareness that I need to look at my life differently to make this shift. I must commit to my success from my heart, breathing it in so that it becomes my state of being. While I’m hoping this will be an adjustment I will make overnight, I suspect that this will require some practice before I’m totally there. But that’s okay. At least I know that the ability to do this lies completely inside of me.
Thank you for visiting. I’m wishing you an amazing journey.
