Logic Is Over-rated
Some may call me crazy. And perhaps I am. But I’d also like to think I’m a visionary….
Logic didn’t get me to living in Hawaii for 14 months, off-grid on an organic farm.
It didn’t get me to quit my job as a psychologist. To leave my engagement – that looked great to everyone else.
And it sure the fuck didn’t take me to Bali.
I actually remember sitting out on my lenai in Hawaii crying, thinking “are you crazy! You want to move to Bali? You’re going to leave paradise to move to some unknown place you’ve never been to an 11 hour flight away?”
But I had to follow my heart.
My heart knew.
Lead With Your Heart
I live by the brilliance of my heart.
My heart leads the way.
Every time I make a decision that serves my highest good it’s because my heart was in charge, not my mind.
My mind likes to come up with all these “reasons” that sound perfectly reasonable.
“You’ve never been to SE Asia”
“It’s hard to live in another country”
“You’ll have to take even less with you than you have now”
“You won’t know anyone, you won’t know the language, you won’t have your friends close by for a safety net”.
They all sound like perfectly reasonable reasons not to move to Bali.
But they were all just bullshit fears and excuses that I was throwing up for myself to try to give myself a “logical” reason to ignore my heart.
You see, your subconscious mind is filled with the limits you’ve put on yourself throughout your life.
If you come from toxicity and trauma, that can be a whole big bag of rocks you’re unknowingly carrying around on your back.
All kinds of reasons that pop up without you even realizing it’s happening that tell you:
Why I should stay small.
Shut up and be polite.
Not have feelings that burn like a wildfire.
And not have an opinion that might chase some people off.
Unlock The Cage Door
My whole life burns. Smoldering Ash… when I allow it to.
When I stop saying “slow down. That’s enough.” Or “hold up. You’re reaching the boundary of reasonable.”
When instead I allow myself to swim in the ethers.
Not considering “what’s possible.”
Not caring “what’s probable.”
But letting myself be in the full-bodied embrace of this moment.
And trusting the path to unfold.
Knowing that what I most dearly desire is rushing toward me, but will expand and become bigger in time.
As I expand and increase my capacity to hold those dreams.
The impossible is made real through the moans of your ecstatic embrace of life.
Stop silencing the hushed whispers of your the bliss that exists in the now, the bliss that allows those untold desires untold.
And let go of the “what if’s” that have been impressed upon you by the world.
By the conditioning of the past.
Fear is but a prison. And you hold the key.
This is the work I do with my one-one-one coaching clients.
