Many of my ideas, dreams and insights remain in my mind waiting for the “right time” to be expressed.
However, very often this “right time” never comes.
“One day I’ll share it”, “I’ll suggest it at the right moment”, “I’ll put it into practice when I have the chance”, “I’ll think about it later”.
I have realized that many of these things remain within me, with no room to expand and manifest.
I keep talking to myself, without any progress.
However, as Elizabeth Gilbert says in her book Big Magic, inspirations do not come to each of us exclusively, but they are part of a whole, of the same great idea.
What a waste and how selfish of me then to keep quiet, waiting for the right moment and then end up not opening a space to something that, in fact, belongs to us all!
And why does this happen?
Belief that it is not important and it will not make much difference, doubt if it will work or thinking that it is not a priority.
And underneath it all, is the well-known FEAR.
Fear that it will not be perfect.
Fear that people will not know how to put into practice what we are thinking.
Fear of not being the only author of this idea.
Fear that this idea is irrelevant.
Fear that it will require a lot of time and energy.
Fear of failure.
Fear, fear, fear.
That’s how contraction happens, rather than the desired and dear expansion.
And dreams and ideas that could be beautiful manifestations, end up wilting and fading into nothing.
Recently, I was able to share and release one of my dear ideas.
An idea I’d been keeping, protecting and careful with so that it came out perfect at the right time.
But as I opened it and offered it to more people spontaneously and without planning much, I felt my heart, body and mind becoming lighter.
And everything turned out to be easier, more fun, more fluid.
I was reminded, once again, that when I nourish the illusion that I am going to conquer and embrace the world by myself, I become small, limited, and cannot even embrace myself.
I want to be big, with long arms and embrace the world and the universe with you!
