What’s Beyond the Barrier?
I’m re-doing my website at the moment. Something I’ve had a barrier to doing for a long time. I’ve cringed for long enough while looking at it, and yet it’s still taken me years to get to the point where I’m committed to re-designing it! So I’ve been reflecting on what the barrier was.
Of course it was an internal barrier and I recognise that I have other internal barriers in my life. It’s a part of being human, right? But the barriers almost always come down to how we think about things.
As part of my efforts to re-write my website and share my message, I’ve been meaning to write, but I’ve not felt inclined to. In fact, it would be more accurate to say I’ve felt a lot of resistance to writing. This has been a pattern especially in writing or sharing my message, but in other contexts too; exercise, giving up coffee, the list could go on. Why is that?
Where did the resistance to writing come from?
While considering this question, I caught myself sharing with someone (my Attraction Manager as it happens!) how I didn’t want to market my courses like other people through writing; how I didn’t want to promote myself through my writing; or write just for the sake of it, without some sort of deep sense of purpose. And I didn’t want it to be about myself.
This of course begs the question, what did I want?
It took me a while to process the answer to this and the subsequent questions which enabled me to make a significant shift and begin actually enjoying the process of writing again, with a sense of purpose and ease. But the core shift was a structural shift moving away from what I didn’t want to moving towards what I did want. Simple, yet profound.
What I discovered as I explored these questions, was that I wanted to share. I wanted to touch people and share a message from my heart; to move people and inspire them to live a life of freedom, love and boundless possibility.
That’s the truth
The shift away from what I didn’t want, to what I did want may see like a small change to you, and at some level it is. But it’s also a profound shift. It took some time, space and exploration to explore my embodied knowing to come to know the truth. And we always know the truth at an embodied level.
Until I discovered what I truly wanted – the deeper purpose behind my writing – I wasn’t motivated. And within that small word purpose lies a rich visual, auditory and kinaesthetic internal experience. That’s the difference that makes the difference.
As a part of that experience, I now see your engagement and the smile on your face as you read this sentence. I see this blog impacting and touching you in ways that are moving youtowards action in meaningful and purposeful ways.
So… what’s beyond the barrier for you?
And what’s it that’s important to you and for you as we enter this new year?
What would it mean to you having already actualised what’s most important to you in your life this year?
What do you really want to have happen this year and what has to be true in order for it to manifest?
And what are some of the contexts and ways in which you can continue to integrate and move towards the outcomes you’ve begun exploring here?
These are the ways beyond the barriers. Engage your unconscious mind, your heart and soul through transformational questions. And enjoying the process.
Wishing you a miraculous New Year!
