Think of all the choices you make and I’m sure you’ll be surprised at how many decisions you actually make in a day. Some of them are simple choices and some of them have more of an impact on life, but if we look closely at the difficulty we have in making some choices it may be that there is an underlying theme or an element of fear connected to them.
Fear of making the wrong choice can freeze us into doing nothing; simply out of fear of thinking we may make the wrong decision. Some of us really struggle with making choices in our lives but each decision we do make is a choice which leads us to the next step in our journey of life, and another experience to discover more deeply who we really are. Every choice we have made to date has been a constant unfolding that has led each of us, to who we are today. The decisions we make open the door for new experiences filled with joy, fear, stress, peace, vulnerability and love and at the end of the day, they are all choices towards a movement of expressing our way through life.
When we surrender to the fears that come along with making choices there’s a sense of freedom that arises in the knowing that you can’t make a wrong decision, it’s just a choice which will provide an experience. It’s all in the way we choose to view our life circumstances through our mind that makes it appear as if there is a problem with a specific choice we make or not.
If you listen to your heart when making choices and not let fear be the ruler of your decision making, you will discover there is no problem with making a choice. Decisions which are not driven by ego and fear have a particular feel to them. Take a moment to reflect back over the times when you have made choices in your life that resonated with your heart, the decisions that were not made out of fear – how did your body feel? I know mine feels free and joyful with an undeniable energy that runs through it that simply says ‘yes’.
Keep your life simple by knowing that the choices you make in your in life in this moment are perfect and there is no problem with choice when we live life in the moment – that too, is also a choice.
Honour your spirit and walk towards the journey your heart desires.
