I am inspired this week by courage, the courage to continue to move forward regardless of the brains death throes.
We have a tendency in the western world to go through our lives living in our head and yet it’s our heart where our passions lies, Mastin Kipp of Daily Love said:
“When we live in our heart our brain thinks we’re going to die!”
This was so powerful for me and mustered up visually an image of my brain having a tantrum about me listening too much too my heart, not giving much attention to logic. I laughed and laughed and snorted out loud at this powerful metaphor!
Now every time my brain has a hissy fit about me listening and having the courage to follow my heart, I can see it for what it is; just fear wanting to be heard. Like a toddler throwing a tantrum unreasonably wanting a 10th cookie for breakfast you wouldn’t give in right? It kinda takes the power away from fear when you can laugh at it. There there brain, logic and fear, I hear you and I validate what you’re saying but i’m going to keep moving forward with the courage of a lion in my heart, to live and serve others through happiness. I won’t give in to your death throes, I will thank you for the message, smile, let go and take courageous heartfelt action!
Have courage to continue in the face of fear because your heart is where your play is, your fun, creativity, where your dreams are felt and come alive, where you think big not contained by logic. If you are playing and creating, it’s healthy for your soul and it lights you up, your heart is open and energized. Let the brain throw its tantrum but don’t give it too much attention. Smile and be assured you’re on the right path and continue to focus on what you want and live from your heart, in the now, in the moment.
If you’re unsure whether your fear is true ask your heart. Close your eyes and take your energy into your heart and sit connecting for a few moments, feel, see and hear your conundrum and your body will tell you if the fear is true. If your body comes alive at the thought of the possibility of accomplishing a dream have the courage of a lion and move forward. Trust!
