We all have our comfort zones. They're quite individualized.......providing the perfect fit to keep each one of us *comfortable.* That's the point. The varieties are endless, but the one result that all share is that they prevent us from expanding. They prevent the soul from actualizing its purpose in each incarnation: to experience anew, to grow in wisdom and understanding, to learn, to resolve conflicts from prior lives, to create in ways that we may have begun in a prior life but were unable to develop fully.
Writer, speaker and motivational teacher Neale Donald Walsch is credited with the well known saying: "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." And he's right!
I recently went out of town briefly. Haven't done so in such a long time! I was only gone 2 full days, but they were days filled with new sights, experiences, feelings.........even new thoughts. I was even blessed with a spontaneous regression experience from an earlier lifetime in which I had been Native American - and had traveled the land I was visiting...........moving camp from one place to another with my beloved family and tribe. It was a homecoming for me, in a way, as I watched snippets of scenes unfold and play before my eyes. And such a beautiful way in which my soul was noursihed!
On another level, I realized, as I drove through country I had been quite familiar with a few years ago, how much things had changed since I was last in that area! Yes, I've also changed - but like many, I tend to think things outside of *me* remain the same. That's probably because, living in my comfort zone, I routinely tend to go the same places all the time, and changes that are in progress go unnoticed by me. I don't look. I don't see. It all seems stagnant, so what's the point of actually *looking.* It isn't that things outside me are stagnant - it's that *I* became stagnant!
There are many ways in which anyone can step outside of their comfort zone: change one or two things you do on a daily basis, and make that change often; try something completely new at least once a month; learn a new skill; have a past life regression experience (either with a practitioner or access one of the many available via recording or online; start a new project with commitment to finishing it by a certain date; make new acquaintances. The bottom line is do something different!
My experience brought me such joy and a sense of freedom I hadn't had for some time. I feel renewed in wonderful ways. I learned several huge lessons - ones I had already known, but had forgotten through disuse. One was about how much I had come to feel the need to control the outcome of so much in my life...........but more about that in a future blog.
I made it difficult for myself to take that step of leaving my comfort zone! Argued back and forth with myself. But with the help of both EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and The One Command, I made the shift and am so happy I did so. It won't be long before I do go again. I NEED that.........and so do we all. We aren't put on this planet to stagnate. We are here to be a vibrant expression of our soul's desire for experiences - experiences that don't happen when we're locked into our comfort zone!
If these words resonate and you would like some help moving out of your comfort zone, get in touch and book a session. I'd love to help you expand as I did!
