Situations may show up in our lives to assist us to let go of outdated ideas (that we adopted from others) in order to step into a new way of being. As an example, we may find ourselves in a difficult situation at work that requires us to be bold and courageous, and express our discomfort with how things are being done, instead of staying quiet and following orders. As we step up and speak our truth, we’re in a sense, giving ourselves permission to be more of ourselves. This does not mean being in opposition to others, or needing to defend what we believe in, but it does mean honoring our experience and choosing how we want to respond to what’s showing up in our lives.
Lots of things are shifting on a broad scale. We are living in a time when many old, outdated systems that don’t support life are crumbling and we are called to wake up and ask new questions, find our voice and start asking, “What do we want to be a part of? What role do we want to play in the bigger picture?” Now is the time to shift. Many of us are starting to connect with our true voice, and share new ideas that are both energizing and inspiring.
