Welcome to week 17, the Hero’s Journey.
The last couple of weeks my mind has been going a bit stir crazy and I wasn’t sure what was going on. It seemed like I was completely stuck in a very familiar pattern, comfortable but at the same time painful. A place I knew I didn’t want to hang out in but also didn’t want to move out of. I was perplexed, but I kept seeking awareness of my situation. With the understanding of the mind being the greatest mechanism if the operator is proficient and focused, I stopped playing victim to my thoughts and took control.
I felt myself shifting and my soul felt alive again. Most days it seems I have to over practice the 7 laws of the mind to stay on track. I had hoped this would be easier, but its all part of the hero’s journey. The scenes we don’t see, the untold story of the hero in our society. It’s the seemly mundane daily wins that create the hero and the journey worth sharing.
My journey was brought more light by the words Mark J shared on the Sunday webinar. He gave us examples of how we refuse the call to our greatness, one being finding flaws in things. This struck a major chord with me, and at the moment I knew why my life felt like groundhog day. I had been refusing the call in very subtle ways for many years and looking back I’m pretty sure I’ve missed 100,000’s opportunities to take just a few more steps to cross the finish line to my greatness. The comfort of my flawed blueprint had sucked me back in every time.
With my new awareness, I now can choose to stop the madness of groundhog day!!!
Emotions were flowing; sadness, relief, joy, grief, and unconditional love. I tried to share my feelings & experience with my husband, but I just couldn’t find the words, so much was stirring within me. I went to bed that night asking for clarity and guidance.
Then came the dream…
We were at war and it happened without notice. My husband went out fighting for us and was shot & killed almost instantly right before my eyes. I was hiding in a corner as everyone in front of me was being killed. When the shooting stopped I had a decision to make, stay hidden in the corner or stand up and fight for my life. I stood up and starting walking without fear out into the landscape that was now filled with sunshine.
I believe every character in a dream represents ourselves and this war was between my old blueprint beliefs (everyone fighting in front of me) and my Hero’s Journey to greatness. It seems my old beliefs were being cleared away, making room for the “real” me to show up. Painful but worth it!
The death and the rebirth…
In this process, I get to experience the joy of a brand new me and the feelings of losing a dear friend. From this day forward I choose to be moved by the joy, allow the feelings to flow and continue my rebirth process to my Hero’s Journey.
Each moment of every single day I have a choice and so do you….
refusal to the call or continue on the Hero’s Journey…
Which call will you answer to?
My hope is you join me in the continuation of your Hero’s Journey.
Enjoy the journey, feel the feelings and love yourself along the way.
Much Love & Light to you,
