Courage is very crucial to hold when you want to make your life blossom. It forces you to leave your attachments behind, getting in touch with the unknown along with practicing trust, faith and being comfortable with uncertainty.
Going through this process could be pretty scary and unstable.
Many years ago, back when I was a designer and working 12 hours a day, I had a feeling in my heart that my career was not aligned with me.
I was in denial and my inner voice sounded something like this : ”this has been your dream ever since your were 16, how could it not be aligned with who you are?”
The truth is, that I was so miserable and unhappy in my job.
I was putting off inquiring within to truly understand my needs and as time passed by and the stress was way too much to handle, I felt my heart shrinking more and more day after a day.
Funny enough, I was laid off shortly after that and a whole new page began.
The hardest thing was that I had no idea who I was outside of that job and it was so hard to inquire within to discover myself all over again.
I felt lost, confused, terrified of the unknown and very angry at what had happened even though I really wanted to leave but my ego was crushed (And that was a great thing).
I was longing for courage. I was thirsty for a miracle and for faith. I wanted a positive change in my life. It took me weeks and months before I was able to surrender to God and find courage to realize what I love to do.
After a year of complete surrender to God and inner healing work (still doing that), I was able to recognize the power and the talent that’s within me and I became a transformational life coach.
My desires of going to bed every single night feeling fulfilled and knowing that what I’m doing is an extension of me, came to pass.
Based on the course in miracles: “Perfect love casts out fear. If fear exists, then there is not perfect love”.
Your courage and power will surface when you realize that your first step is to surrender to God. Your internal followed by your external shift will happen eventually.
That’s applied in every area of your life because your relationship with your partner, family, career, health, wealth and so on are an extension of who you are.
When I look back at my past, very similar healing and surrendering experiences happened when my family went through bankruptcy, when I moved to a whole new country, when I was dumped, when my brother was diagnosed with cancer, when my baby dog got sick and when I was united with my husband.
When you surrender to God and ask him to make you an instrument of love, the actions that you take afterwards will come from a place of love and not from a place of fear.
You’ll discover power, gain, healing and things will come together for you. Your actions will become fearless and you’ll attract love and courage in every area of your life.
Things may not take the form that you desire but it will come in a form that is so perfect for your healing process in life.
Every area of your life is an extension of who you are. You can’t change one aspect of your life such as career yet neglect the other.
If things are falling apart or if you’re desperately seeking for a change in your life, remind yourself to surrender to God, to the divine and to the universe.
Ask for a miracle, for a shift of perception and for healing to occur.
Turn your focus to the gain instead of the scarcity that you have. Reflect on the healing process that is happening and let go of controlling things and wanting them to happen in a very specific way.
When you choose love; courage, abundance, completeness, happiness, peace and unity will come. When you choose fear; drama, hurt, pain, anxiety, loneliness, separation, scarcity will surface.
When you’re desperately looking for courage to change your life, pray and ask the divine for guidance and take actions based on love and not fear, be open for whatever is about to come and know that blessings will come to you when you allow healing to occur throughout the process.
