Overcoming fear and embracing intuition
As of today, I've been in the jungle in Costa Rica for about a week and a half. I write to you to confess that 2 weeks before my trip I was freaking out. This trip has been a major leap of faith and a major following of my intuition with few questions asked. Multiples days in the weeks before, my heart would begin to pace quickly, fear trembling through my body, and my thoughts delved through many rivers of doubt in my mind. What am I doing? What if nothing comes of this? Why am I going alone? WHO'S IDEA WAS THIS AGAIN?!?
To be honest if it was just up to me I would have bought a round trip ticket as oppose to a one way. But two major things pushed me forward. My spirit guides and the 70 year old version of me. My ancestral guides made it easy and clear that I should do this and that it would bring or manifest the desires/dreams I crave for. To be honest my intuition has been speaking on this for many months. For a long time now I would walk into retail stores and feel a deep urge to buy luggage.
Then my life coach proposed a question that really pushed me over the edge. She asked me to imagine myself 70+ years old, grandmama status, and imagine what would she say to me at this crossroad in my life? My heart filled instantly. There's no way 70 year old me would have looked back and said don't do this. There's no way she would of missed out on this adventure. And even if it was a complete disaster, 70 year old me would have fun telling this story in her old age. I've never in my life been so willing to fail or make a mistake.
All the fear that showed up showed me where I am on my journey, what inner work there is to do, and how paralyzing staying in one place can be. I used to challenge myself more. I would seek activities that put me out of my comfort zone. It's been a long time since I've taken a risk. So even though all these strange feelings and thoughts consumed me. I bought my ticket, I did the travel shopping, I told people what I was doing even when my decision wasn't fully made.
When I arrived, this question that I've been posting on my social pages has been empowering me: What would your life look like if you followed you intuition at all times? I thought this is what my life looks like, when I trust the universe.
They say feel the fear and do it anyway. I say do it. Embrace where your intuition is guiding you to. Consider the possibilities, adventures, and blessings on the other side of fear. What would 70 year old you say?
The Ancestral Healing workshop and ceremony I held at the wellness center here went so beautifully. Everyone was personally touched by the experience. My intuition led me to help, guide, and inspire others. Spirit was present and everything flowed. The whole experience for me confirmed I am on the exact right path.
I invite you to really imagine for a second your life high on intuition? Listening to the callings of your heart. What would life feel, taste, and be like? Who would you become along the way?
