BLOGS WITH LARA
Are you getting in your own way of living your best life? If you said yes, well done as we are all getting in our own way in one way or another.
I'm inspired writing this blog as I want to help as many people as I can to get their SHINE on, and to do this we must get out of our own way. We can all sabotage our growth and evolution - I have certainly done that at times myself.
Here's the thing, right now we are in a time of growth and evolution on the planet... it's a quickening if you like... and if we don't get on board, we will be dragged. So as I see it best we get on with it.
How do you know this to be true?
Listen to this inner-voice as it's guiding you to deepen into more of who you are; a better you and better life.
The great news is if we do get on board and do our inner-work we will experience quantum leaps, as the energy supports this growth like never before!
As we are on this fast=paced journey there will be obstacles in the way, let's dive into the process of making a decision to do our inner-work....it can certainly be an interesting endeavour!
It can bring up all sorts of resistance. Sometimes perhaps not so obvious; reasons like the timing isn’t right or the money isn’t right, or a story about why it won’t work.
There's a quote by Elizabeth Gilbert that sums up what it often takes... and that is:
"I've never seen any life transformation that didn't begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullshit."
Sometimes it will be that we decide enough's enough. But there is a counter to this, a moment of conscious choice.
On this journey of life we can either be a front-footer or picking up the pieces. A front-footer chooses to continually learn, grow and evolve, to be their best selves. Picking up the pieces.. well that speaks for itself.
The reality is, to up-level often means to get out of our own way. And most of us have put things in the way to play it safe, to be comfortable, and to avoid. We will never truly become who we are destined to be by letting these aspects win.
Taking our lives into our own hands takes courage. It means taking ownership (owning our shit), and responsibility for our creations.. it means facing our fears and feeling what we have strategically kept hidden.
So why would we do it, as it’s the most rewarding path. As everything we seek is already within, and until we go within we continue to search externally.
There’s very good reason I call those who step up 'warriors'. As to live our greatest potential, to fully embracing our gifts, our genius, our greatness we must bring our courageous inner-warrior to forefront.
Are you sabotaging your growth and suppressing your inner-warrior?
Here are some considerations to ask yourself:
Self-enquiry is essential to get honest with ourselves. To see what we are perhaps doing that is dulling our SHINE, so that we can remove those obstacles and turn it up!
The greatest gift I have ever given myself (and to be fair many others) was choosing to do my inner-work. It’s the diamond in the rough adage that when we polish and craft a diamond into it’s full potential, it’s glorious. We are the same!
Doing our inner-work is the greatest act of self-love; to become self-aware is life-changing.
You are your greatest investment.
