When you’re inspired to make big life changes – especially in the areas of career, relationships, or location – you may feel limited by your current circumstances. Many of us have settled into a routine which has taken shape over a lifetime of decision making that’s based on what we’ve been conditioned to believe is (or is not) possible, what is practical, what’s safe and certain, etc. As a result, we make most of our decisions by analyzing the situation and choosing the options we think will work out for us.
Because we believe that our options are limited, we go against our inner guidance – and that split then diminishes our life force energy (our light, chi) which can create emotional (and eventually physical) pain. We shut down to numb that pain and end up living someone else’s dream – fulfilling the expectations of family or the bigger societal structure.
