“Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.”

~David Whyte

Our moments of darkness and solitude (both actually just “secret names” for Pause!) have much to teach us, if we will but decide to call them “friends” rather than shun them as “enemies”.

To learn to welcome them is to access wisdom regarding just how limitless and powerful we truly are.

Live Large.

Live how you would be if you had no boundaries on your potential.

Because actually…?

You do not…And you never will! 🌈💥

Reflect.

Look for a belief that has been placing a limitation on your thoughts or actions.

Reset.

What gesture – whether of word or deed – will you elect to experience today that will clearly express a break in an existing boundary? (Size of gesture matters not: only that it is large enough to make a break).

Respond.

Once you have completed this gesture, Pause just afterward. Notice how your heart, mind and body have each responded to this experience…this gift you gave to yourself. Listen.

You have just moved from confinement…

To freedom.

You have just changed your world.

Set an intention to repeat ad libitum… Maybe right now?

Or perhaps in five minutes…? Or an hour?

But definitely no later than tomorrow!

Stay consistent.

Stay creative.

Keep listening…

Your Heart will gladly lead the way!
