Day 286: Daring to let go 

I believe there is a part within all of us that calls for our greatness.

It is the part in our hearts and being that inspires us to expand. When we are tuned into this part of our being, we dream the big dreams, our imagination is exercised, and the vibrations of possibility run through our body.

This is who we truly are. Beacons of possibility. 

We were born with this insatiable desire to explore, be adventurers, be unstoppable, have this world be our playground for our imagination, and to believe that anything is possible.

"What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve" - Napolean Hill.

The quote has a new meaning to me.

I am currently re-reading Wishes Fulfilled authored by the late Dr Wayne Dyer; one whom I consider a mentor. 

I am on a chapter that shares an idea about our own self-concept. Our own self-concept; our self-concept about our physical abilities and our inner beliefs have bought us to where we are right in this moment.

We are bounded by our own limiting beliefs and truths that we have created. 

In order to be attuned and aligned to the part of us that calls for our greatness, we have to be willing and open to letting go.

Letting go of our own beliefs. Letting go of our own truths. Letting go of the stories that we have created and played out.

Letting go of our past. Letting go of what we think we are capable or not capable of. 

Letting go of these truths is scary as they have been the parameters in which we have operated as habit. They have kept us feeling "safe" and removed "unpredictability". Irrespective of whether reality is what we want or not; or whether the outcomes are in our favour or not, our minds role is to keep us safe and within our own habits.

When we dare to have inspiring thoughts and imagine the kind of life that would nourish us, the next step is to believe that this is possible. This takes courage.

In order to believe what we have imagined, we have to be willing to shatter the our own story of our created self-concept. 

We have to be willing to dig deep, discover the created 'truths' that we have imposed on our souls, and create a space within our hearts to have faith in that part of us that is connected to expanding and hungry for 'living'. Not existing, 'living'.

I am excited to challenge and let-go of my existing self-concept. 

To dare greatly, is to peel the layers that are barriers to living wholeheartedly.
