This is the statement that began my journal entry yesterday. I literally moved on to the next level in the game of life, with my health level to full capacity and my knowledge in tact. If you're curious about the game reference, read my last post Soldier On. In it I mention how the Universe knows when, in the game, we're ready to jump to the next level, testing our resolve and commitment to the journey. Will I have the guts to continue forward, or revert back to old patterns of codependency and people pleasing, getting taken down a level or two? I felt like so many things were in alignment and I was UN-Tucking the Fringe, living my truth and I could see in my mind so many new things on the horizon. What I was seeing was pure and authentic, growth in my personal journey and in my business. That's when the difficulty level went up.
The test at the end of this level was: How much have you really learned about yourself in Tuck the Fringe recovery? How serious are you? Do you believe? These were the questions I had to provide answers to before I could pass through the gate of the next level. The designer of the game knew exactly what I needed to face to be able to move forward and both tests were neatly placed simultaneously in the same situation. One I was aware of and the other, was a complete surprise. I think that was the ultimate, we can't let you off the hook that easy nod from the universe.
As I made it past the flood of emotions rushing into the my physical body and gained composure, I immediately went to the toolbox of what I've learned on my Tuck the Fringe journey and common sense. My test was to acknowledge what I was feeling, but use what I've learned to not allow the hurts of the past to cloud my progress. It would have been very easy for me to go backwards to that place of hurt, singing the lyrics to my favorite Done Me Wrong country song. But I didn't! I moved forward with grace and ease. God was either in front of me shielding me or behind me pushing me through, but he was there. So were my angels, guides and my Dad! I had full health and knowledge to move through the level and when I came out on the other side, victorious. I laughed!!!! Huh!? That's funny! I had absolutely no attachment to what a few years earlier would have consumed me for days! It was my breakthrough!
Now, I know that my vision for my future is not only true but attainable. The best thing about it is that I'm completely open to all aspects of whatever the next level has in store for me! Are you in a difficult level right now? Remember that the battles we are going through are set up for our breakthrough! I'm here to cheer you on!
