“She had discovered early that what we want out of life can change; that the important thing is to learn to recognize or even simply just to admit what we really want, and then to have the courage to reach for it.”
~ Candice Proctor, Whispers of Heaven
“The question is: how bad do things have to get before you will do something about it? Where is your line in the sand?”
~ Michael Badnarik
Today, under this Traveller’s Moon, is a good time to get clear on our starting place for change.
Understand this. You don’t need to know yet where you are headed. You just need to know what it is you really need to leave behind.
You need to get clear about what you DON’T WANT.
This isn’t a list of dislikes. It’s not an agenda of complaints.
Today I want you to spend some time and be totally honest with yourself. Based on all of your life experiences so far, and on a foundation of your values and integrity, what is it that you just can’t do, won’t do, don’t ever want?
Your starting place for change is to simply recognise the energies and styles of relationships that you are no longer prepared to accept in your life.
Think of it as drawing a line in the sand so that the Universe knows where you are at, and so that you can use this as a measuring stick for future situations, choices and relationships.
It might not be a very long list. That’s okay. What’s most important is that you feel it in your heart and know it to be true for you.
Here are some examples:
I will never accept a cheating partner again.
I can’t work in a place where I am bullied.
Working twelve hour days for someone else – that’s over!
Never spending time in nature? I can’t do that anymore.
Once you have that list, turn your back and put those things behind you.
With what you don’t want behind you, you’ll have a starting place and a clear direction forward, even if you don’t know exactly where you’re headed next.
Knowing what we don’t want is ALWAYS the starting point of working out what we DO want.
