Possibilities are all around us if we are in the flow of our lives. The following acronym came to me as I walked in nature this morning.
How many times have you had an idea and let it go because your inner critic said “Are you kidding?” or “Who do you think you are?”
Julia Cameron talks about recovering a sense of possibility in her best selling book The Artist’s Way. She states that “Recovery is the process of finding the river and saying yes to its flow, rapids and all. We startle ourselves by saying yes instead of no to opportunities.” And I would also add possibilities. The following exercise from The Artist’s Way is all about possibilities. It’s called Wish List and you number 1-20 and complete the following phrase “I wish……………” This is meant to be done quickly without thinking, judging, analyzing. It’s amazing what pops up in this exercise, all sorts of possibilities appear.
What about you? How can you move from scarcity thinking to anything is possible? What is the next courageous step for you? How do you block possibilities by limiting the good you can receive? How can you get out of your own way? What is your intuition trying to tell you?
“Start by doing the necessary, then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -St Francis of Assisi
