Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

“… when you make a choice to step out of your comfort zone, to become more, it will shake things up. Absolutely shake things up. And the people in your life who have supported you thus far, when you begin to take a step in a direction that they’re not comfortable with, may do everything in their power to pull you back into the old way of being. Because they know how to be comfortable with you in that old way. So they’re going to do what they need to do to be comfortable. And that is to pull you back.

 Your job is to keep moving forward from a place of love. And when you are always coming from a place of love when you make your choices? Even if they do not support your choices, you are giving them an opportunity to grow and expand in how they choose to respond to the choice you are making. And for them, it is always a choice, just as it is for you. Because you will also have to choose to respond to their response from a place of love, and that isn’t always easy.

It is time for you to grow. To be more. To stand up for yourself in a way that you haven’t had the strength or the courage to stand up before. But, again, always coming from a place of loving yourself. Not of feeling less than, or feeling a lack of, or feeling unworthy of.  And certainly not from a place of entitlement. “I deserve this because of that happening.” If that’s your reasoning, if that’s your logic, you’re not coming from a place of love. If you can say, “I deserve to be all that I came here to be because I am a child of the Divine.” Well, that is truly, truly a deserving statement.

Each and every one of you has unique gifts. Each and every one of you has a unique calling. A unique purpose. But if you hide your light under a bushel, how will the people who need you find you? What are you afraid of? Who are you afraid of? Are you afraid of what people will say if you don’t look like they expect you to look, or act like they expect you to act? Are you afraid you’ll be criticized or ostracized or made fun of? Are you afraid they’ll laugh at you or laugh behind your back?

That always happens when other people are afraid of your power. Recognize that what they are doing and saying to you has nothing to do with you. It’s all about them: their own pain, their own woundedness, their own needs. You need to look past what they are saying and see what they are saying as evidence of their own need to heal. And you need to come from a place of love, regardless of where they are coming from.”
