Comfort Zone or Jail?
When we take time to look at life we may be surprised to discover how many “comfort zones” we have created for ourselves. It could be a job we do not like but are afraid to leave in case we fail at a new venture or perhaps there is a relationship that is actually toxic to us but are afraid of what it would be like to start again, be on our own or try and make new friends. A comfort zone is not always a warm and fuzzy place, just one that is familiar. Too often it is more like a jail surrounding us with walls of negativity.
Our Spirit can feel trapped when we remain in these comfort zones instead of following our dharma (purpose). How frustrated and restless we become when we have this inner knowing that we are not fulfilling a dream, a passion or a purpose! Many times we are forced into making a decision about our comfort zone either through a breakup in a relationship, a lay off at our job, financial circumstances or often through physical disease. Worry and fear can manifest in illness, stress and emotional disharmony leaving us feeling low in self-esteem, confidence and filling us with hopelessness. It does not have to remain that way and it can be overcome.
How do you look at life? Are you able to let go of the past and live life in the present? The locked doors and high walls that keep us in this comfort zone are usually our own fears; fear of failure, of being hurt emotionally, others knowing a secret about us, fear of not meeting someone else’s expectations, fear of success, and the list goes on, creating higher and higher walls and limits on ourselves. What if we were to look at any past experiences as life lessons, take a positive strength from them that could help us in moving ahead? What if we take on the attitude that it is better to have attempted to fulfill our dreams than living with the regret of never having tried? Will we be “comfortable” living with all the what ifs, could haves and should haves all our lives or will they manifest in resentment, remorse or grief?
The first step in freeing ourselves of this jail is to get in touch with who we are in this present moment; not where and who we were years ago but how we feel right now. We needn’t be afraid to write down our dreams or imagine what things will be like once we achieve our goals. Actually doing this puts the wheels of change into motion. It is important to remember that our thoughts become our reality. Should we choose to think negatively we will attract this into our lives and thus continue to build the wall higher and higher around us. One positive thought, will become one positive action and the destruction of the wall of negativity will soon begin causing it to crumble and fall bringing with it our freedom from this jail.
Once we realize what we desire and believe that we deserve this in our life then we are well on our way to being open enough to ask the Universe for help. Through meditation we allow ourselves to be more at one with our Higher Self and Spirit. We will recognize the life lessons we have learned and why. As our intuition increases and awareness grows we will see many of our fears dissolving as we begin to trust that all is how it should be and we will be given opportunities along life’s path to help us in fulfilling our dharma.
Through Hypnosis, I assist others in bringing a sense of control back into their lives and then they are able to make changes necessary for their personal growth. Past Life Regression has helped many people, including myself, to understand our fears, habits, and life lessons we need to learn. These are things which have brought me to where I am today – practicing Hypnotherapy and Reiki from my Marmora office, providing private and group sessions and workshops along with weekly meditation classes.
Life is a learning field for all of us and we are all on a journey. Through out the trip we cross each other’s path for a reason. I am grateful for all my life’s experiences as I feel it has taught me to become who I am today and I know, the trip is far from over!
