How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one!
How are you after yesterday's healing experience? Healing rituals like yesterday's virtual one are a gentle way to help yourself let go of the past.
And it may not happen all at once, so when it's definitely time for letting go and moving on, having a virtual healing ritual as a resource might help you let go a little at a time. On the other hand, creating one yourself that is tailor-made for you is even better.
This week, we are turning away from letting go of the old story and beginning to explore making room for the new.
It really is my hope that by the end of these 30 days, you'll be well on your way to creating a new story in your life.
So let's get started with my favorite thing in the world: making wishes...
Make a Wish
Today, I am handing you a magic wand. You can take away the things you'd like to change and replace them, instantly and magically, with whatever you would rather have, instead.
Take a moment to imagine doing exactly that and then, take a quick look at what life looks like for you after those magical wishes have been granted. Is life better?
Would it be worth it, to use the magic wand?
In my own life, I had a somewhat magical experience that created a change I had wished for, but it didn't change me, so I wasn't able to sustain it. I'm not knocking magic.
But I've come to understand in a deeper way that when I am thinking about the way I would like my life to be, the story I want my life to tell, the most important question to consider is who I have to become to live that way.
Could you sustain those changes you imagined creating with your magic wand? Would you enjoy them?
Would they require that you change, too? Who would you have to become?
Of course, the answer is still you, but a different version of you, right? Who you are really, without all the false layers, without all the baggage, without the things that still need to heal.
So I started this month-long journey by asking what new story is calling you. Here are the two most important questions for you to take a deeper look at today.
Stare at the flickering flame in the video above and consider these next two questions...
(1) How would my story change if these wishes came true, and what would my new story be?
(2) Who would I have to become in order to create the new story and keep it?
