Spring Forward, Take That Risk, and Reach for Your Infinite Possibilities

Spring Forward, Take That Risk, and Reach for Your Infinite Possibilities
Image by OpenClipart-Vectors

This is the time of year, the Spring, which represents rebirth and regeneration. It's the time of year when we shed the parts of ourselves that are no longer working for us and move forward into the world of infinite possibilities. We can reach and achieve anything that we want. The only one that stops us is ourselves. The only one imposing limitations on us are ourselves.

This is the time of year to look within and
decide what parts of ourselves we want to enhance
and what parts we want to shed.

The human being is a microcosm of the universe. Our entire makeup represents the entire makeup of the universe. Every cell in our body is a representation of the universe. The universe is infinite and so are we. There are no endings, there are just new beginnings. Therefore, this is the time of year to look within and decide what parts of ourselves we want to enhance and what parts we want to shed.

The Development Phase

Each season represents a phase in our development for the year. In the spring, we decide what seeds we want to plant and what direction we are going in for the year. It is the time of activity, creativity and rebirth. In the summer, we nurture those seeds and they blossom into beautiful flowers, plants and trees. In the fall, we harvest and reap what we have sown. Then, in the winter, we go into our caves, go within do some introspection, reflect on the year, and decide how we want to move forward in our lives. Come spring, we do it all again; rebirth, regeneration and reaching for the new.

We can all reach for the stars. There are no limitations. Knowing this, what stops us? What stops us from reaching for the stars? What are we thinking? What are we feeling? What old tapes are we replaying? What messages are we incorporating as truth from our childhood, from our religious leaders, from our many teachers in this journey through life? What limits us right now?

Take a look at that. Go within. See if you can shed these old tapes and limitations. Evaluate what it is that's stopping you from achieving what you really want in life.

There Is A Way

A good way to do this is through meditation. You can ask your "master" within certain questions. For example, "What thinking patterns do I need to change in order to achieve my goals and seek true happiness"? For many of us, various labels will emerge. Some of these labels may include, "I'm not good enough" "I need more education" "I don't have the time" "I need to stay home with my children", or "I need to spend more time with my spouse". The key is to determine how much of what we say to ourselves is the truth and how much is a means of sabotaging our ability to achieve what we really want in life.

Usually, what stops us is fear; mainly the fear of change. It is safer and more comfortable to remain in the status quo. We are familiar with that. The present might not be very satisfying, but it's comfortable. Compare it to wearing an old pair of shoes. Moving forward is synonymous with buying a new pair of shoes. They are prettier, more fashionable and reflective of our new identity. However, they are still stiff. We don't quite feel comfortable in these new shoes and that is exactly what stops us from moving forward into the unknown.

Moving forward means taking risks. Change for most people creates anxiety because change is moving into the unknown and the unfamiliar. Most people stay where they are to avoid the uncomfortable feelings, such as fear and anxiety, that change and growth creates. There is no blueprint for change. There are no guarantees. Change means taking a risk.

The rewards for taking those risks are great. When you walk through this period of discomfort, you are going to receive something beautiful. You are going to get something better than you have right now. You are going to become the summer. You are going to be in full bloom, like a beautiful flower. In the fall, you are going to be able to harvest what you have sown. You will then be able to receive all the beautiful gifts from your new achievements and growth.

Take that risk. Move forward. It will be alright. You will do fine. It's like jumping off the cliff. You will sprout your wings and fly. Everything will be beautiful. Take that risk. Move forward. Reach for your infinite possibilities. Do it now!
