Unexplored Possibilities Are Waiting For You To Release Them
“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 you start imagining the possibilities, the water gets turned on and you 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 you have wrung every last drop out of your faucet, then you 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 your own insecurities. From every unkind word you 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 you tried something, failed and walked away. From every time you said you would do something, and didn’t.
All of those negative experiences pile up in your minds and become these critical judgmental thinking machines. They promise you safety, that you won’t get hurt if you listen to them, but in reality they are the bars of a prison of your own making.
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 you drag around. Our imaginations can’t take flight with chains connected to an anchor keeping us bound to the earth. You need to release all of those negative, judgmental thoughts, as they do not serve you.
They are limitations, illusions of the magician. He tells us that if you leave his stage you will be in darkness, no longer in the protection of his light. You have built barricades from his illusions of danger, while leaving you 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
