We’ve never been here before.
If I allow myself to really enter that reality, that I’ve never been here before, I can become aware of the infinite possibilities that lie before me. And that is how I want to approach each new day of 2014 – it is a new day.
I am scared a lot of the time because I am living into the unknown and I don’t know how things will turn out. I am taking risks to try new things and I don’t know how they will turn out. I am taking financial risks and I don’t know how things will unfold. And the temptation is for me to constantly be checking over my shoulder and asking for permission to live.
The picture that has been living inside of me comes from a friend of mine who created a sculpted work of art with the image of a woman at the helm of a boat. She is blindfolded, but she is leading the way and directing the path. The artist put the blindfold on the woman as a symbol of her not depending on her physical sight, but her ability to listen to her deepest intuition and trusting that it is the part of her that carries the wisdom, insight, and connection with the Infinite to guide her.
This powerful image speaks to me to move beyond my fears and have the courage to listen to my deepest ‘knowing’. To allow myself to forge into paths yet untravelled and be open to all that life is offering.
May we all have the courage to listen and then to respond to all that this new year has for us…..for we have never been here before.
