Call To Adventure: Online Workshop

 

Our wakening can be a realization that no one will live our lives for us. We must live our own lives. We must risk being our own selves. We must risk making mistakes, risk being judged or rejected, risk being ourselves. We must find the comfort, safety, and love within ourselves, not in the perceived acceptance of others. We must take responsibility for our own happiness and well-being. Heart pounding. Knees weak. Voice shaky. We must find the courage to know and do what is true for us. We must follow our hearts. We must risk feeling our feelings. We must give from our hearts. We must love and let that love fill us to brimming.

Music Video: "Follow My Heart"

Song Lyrics

I’ve lived my life behind a wall showing only parts of who I am.
It’s time I opened up.
It’s time I took a stand.
I am going to tell you what I want.
I’m going to show you me.
I’m going to take the risk you’ll like the me you’ll see, you’ll see.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to feel.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to give.
I’m going to love.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to live.
I thought you would love me more
If I didn’t express my needs.
But all I got was loneliness
For all my selfless deeds.
I’m going to do the things I long to do.
I’m breaking down the wall.
To live.  To live my dreams.
To risk it all.
To risk it all.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to feel.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to give.
I’m going to love.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to live.
I’m going to live.
I thought the wall would keep me safe.
It’s there I made my home.
I thought was it my saving grace.
But there I’ve lived alone.
I'm breakin’ down the wall!
Follow my heart.
I’m going to feel.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to give.
I’m going to love.
Follow my heart.
I’m going to live.
I’m going to follow
Follow my heart
I’m going to follow
Follow my heart
I'm breakin’ down that wall!

The Important Questions To Ask Yourself

Answer the question(s) that best fits your problem or goal. Then listen or read you answer looking for insights.

1.      I don’t want to do this. I don’t want to make the effort.

How can I overcome my resistance?
What am I hiding from?


2.      How is my pain or discomfort a call for me to take action? What kind of action?

Be specific.


3.      Am I willing to be afraid as I fight for my freedom?

Am I willing to be uncomfortable with how I feel and what thoughts I may have?


4.      I don’t think I should have to suffer for my happiness. I should not have to be uncomfortable to achieve my goals. Where did I learn that things should come easily?

What am I experiencing now?


5.      I am sick and tired of this problem.

What would I be willing to feel and experience now to get ready to make the changes I want even though I might be uncomfortable?


6.      I still am not clear about what I want or need to change in my life.

What is my guess about what I am afraid to feel?

 

7.      I am afraid that if I get what I want that others will not like me or may leave me.

How have I restricted myself in order to please others?
Am I willing to accept that others might not accept the new me?
