How to create space for your next phase
Clean out your closet, and you have room for new clothes. Clean out your mind, and you have room for new ideas, growth, understanding, knowledge and more love. The more you open, the easier you step into that next level you.
When I understood the value of getting out the thoughts, triggers and old memories and how they can help you to move forward, and align with your higher self, it shifted everything for me.
The thing is what needs to be released is not always obvious. Even if you are journaling every day, and getting it out, you still might need to dig deeper.
There are those things you’ve subconsciously hidden away; you need to dig out and release. The more you let go, the more you open and allow, the stronger you stand in your truth and power.
It’s an amazing concept that pulling out thoughts helps you to align further into the next level you. It’s like a little push from the universe to get you where you were meant to be.
So I recently learned there are others ways to release and dig deeper. My friend Deborah introduced me to a Shamanic Soul Healer, Nichola Sherlok.
She explained that she helps you to retrieve parts of you that are lost, fragmented, broken, or trapped and bring them back to a place of healing. I honestly had no idea what to expect or if I even believed this was real.
Working with her, she brought me back to that little girl of my childhood. I wasn’t prepared for what an emotional journey it was. I had hidden it all away, and I wasn’t sure that I ever wanted it to come back out.
Back then, I had no idea what I wanted, but I was very clear on what I didn’t want.
I didn’t want the same life I had, and I was determined to make dramatic changes. While I did that, some old patterns and lessons repeated themselves through the years.
Some of the experiences catapulted me forward, and some held me back, yet each instrumental in bringing me to this place. It was heavy, and it has taken a few days to grasp what it was all about and why it was necessary.
I always felt the love from my family, so that was not the issue, yet each child has individual needs that are either met or not. There’s usually some part of you that is still holding on to that child waiting to be seen, heard, loved or validated. While you’ve grown up and found a way to figure things out, that one thing way back in your mind is still waiting to be satisfied.
It was the perfect next step for me to release and open and allow some ghosts of my past to be free. They were still there waiting for the same things they wanted back then.
As crazy as this sounds, the release was real. I want to continue to ascend and learn, yet the prospect of doing this again is both scary and exciting.
I know what it feels like to be uncertain and alone. To be lonely in a group of people and to feel as though you are not seen or heard. Scared of what comes next or figuring out what makes you happy and how you can get there.
It’s the same if you’re building a business or building a life. It’s about stepping into your strength and aligning on a level that excites and uplifts you. It’s finding and connecting with other like-minded people to laugh with and enjoy and understanding how at any point in your life can you still make shifts and become the person you know you are inside.
The more you release and open space the easier you take that next step.
