Unexplored Possibilities Are Waiting For You To Release Them

The most important thing in life is to stop saying, _I wish_ and start saying, _I will._ Consider not (1)

Limitations live only in our minds.  But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.

  – Jamie Paolinetti

Possibilities are like rabbits.  The more you think about them, the more they multiply.  Pretty soon you have a field full of them.  The trick is to turn them into probabilities.  Probabilities are a guide to enlightenment, in the journey of life.  It is the secret of how the Phoenix arises from the ashes and is reborn.  The Phoenix has coded in its DNA the belief of triumph over impossible odds.  So even when defeated, it rises once more from the ashes to achieve the impossible.

You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.

– Deepak Chopra

Imagination, is like turning on the faucet.  When we start imagining the possibilities, the water gets turned on and we start getting ideas.  The trick is to just start writing them down.  No judgement or editing or being critical.  Just put them down on paper, idea after idea.  Possibility after possibility.  Once we have wrung every last drop out of our faucet, then we start looking at each possibility and see how many of them can grow into a probability.  That is how the miracles are born.  It is looking for the one thing that leaps off the page, no matter how impossible it seems.  That is the one, the one that your inner guidance is calling out for.  That is the one that causes the Phoenix to rise up from the ashes.  Do not allow the critical, judgmental thinking to chain it from taking flight.

Possibilities and miracles mean the same thing.

– Prentice Mulford

So where does that critical judgmental thinking come from?  It comes from our own insecurities.  From every unkind word we have heard.   From every well meaning person who said, “Oh no honey, you can’t do that”, girls aren’t good at sports, math, or science.  Or boys don’t play house or with dolls.  From every time we tried something, failed and walked away.  From every time we said we would do something, and didn’t.  All of those negative experiences pile up in our minds and become these critical judgmental thinking machines.  They promise us safety, that we won’t get hurt if we listen to them, but in reality they are the bars of a prison of our own making.

Until you cross the bridge of your insecurities, you can’t begin to explore your possibilities.

  – Tim Fargo

 The trick is to not believe the magician with his sleight of hand tricks. Not becoming attached to those negative beliefs.  They become chains linked to an anchor that we drag around.  Our imaginations can’t take flight with chains connected to an anchor keeping us bound to the earth.  We need to release all of those negative, judgmental thoughts as they do not serve us.  They are limitations, illusions of the magician.  He tells us that if we leave his stage we will be in darkness, no longer in the protection of his light.  We have built barricades from his illusions of danger, while leaving us exposed to an unlived life.  A life lived without passion and purpose.  A life that doesn’t fulfill our divine destiny.

Breathe in the sweet air of limitless possibility, and make life as rich as you know it can be.

  – Ralph Marston

So what if we burned the bridge of insecurities, and let the Phoenix rise from the ashes?  What if we release all of the trauma, drama, and old beliefs of what might go wrong, and instead place our beliefs in what is possible?  What if we dared to pick up the pieces of possibilities, and built wings to take flight with?  What if we lived in faith with infinite possibilities, and expected the promised miracles of probabilities?
