Resistance – Here There Be Dragons
As fellow travelers on the road of transformation, we here at LemonadeMakers have been checking our course against our mission, vision and purpose. As part of that “checking in” you take compass headings, check your map and determine the next part of your course. What you realize as you take your course headings, is that you have gone off course. You have sunk into the comfort zone.
In order to create the kind of life you want to live; you have to focus on what’s important to you. To maintain harmony in your life and stay on course, means that you need to examine where you are in your own personal hero’s journey.
Self-transformation is a lifetime journey. It’s the never-ending story of who you are, and more importantly, who you are becoming.
As you travel down this road you will reach what I call “way points”. These way points are the places where you check in and get supplies for the next leg of your journey. Where you pull out your map to see that course corrections need to be instituted.
Unless you have not moved at all, you will need to make some adjustments to get back on course. That’s because the “dragons of resistance” are always at work. Fears, distractions, addictions, just the contrary winds of life in general – it is all designed to take you off course.
Part of checking your course is to see where your own map is ending – the edges of your own comfort zones. While you may have expanded this zone in the past, you are now needing to expand it again. It is time to reengage the battle, to face off with your dragons of resistance.
You have an intuitive knowing that deep inside of you is a second self. An unlived you. Your authentic self.
The dragon of resistance doesn’t want that authentic self-released. LemonadeMakers writes these blogs to help you learn to recognize your own personal dragons of resistance. LemonadeMakers is offering you the opportunity to wake up and assist you in finding that authentic self.
Do you want to navigate your life with love, inspiration, and peace? In order to help with your staying on course, we try to provide these daily reminders to become more self-aware of what is going on in your life. To become more self-aware of the doors of opportunity that show up in your life.
If you looked at the ancient mariner maps, you would see at the corners of the map, a warning. “Here there be dragons”. As the hero of your own journey, you are going to face those dragons.
Did your dragon of resistance just raise his head and roar at you?
On the field of transforming yourself, stands a hero and a dragon. You are the hero and resistance is the dragon. The dragon confronts you every single time you want to start on a new journey of self-transformation. Every time you expand your comfort zone. Every time you make a new goal, a new dream. Resistance will make itself known.
You will hear many roars from your dragon – fears labeled no time, no money, too risky. It feels safe when you are invisible, average, because then your dragons fire can’t burn you. Every fear that your dragon bellows at you has some part of reality in it. Some vestiges of truth that have been stretched into a terrifying illusion by the dragon of resistance.
You can use these dragons of resistance as the needle of a compass to what your God-given destiny is pulling you towards. You know that this God-given destiny is not average. You deserve better than average.
You can use the dragon of resistance to guide you to that calling or purpose. A good rule of thumb is that the more important the call is to your soul’s evolution, the more the dragon of resistance is going to show up.
The dragon is out to destroy the reason you are being called: the living out loud of your divine destiny, your personal genius, the soul’s gift you have that no one else on this earth has but you.
You will know if you are on course, by the level of resistance you are currently feeling to discovering more about your authentic self.
You are on a lifetime journey of discovery. There is always something new to learn, discover, uncover and reveal about who you are and why you are here now.
Your work is to learn more about your personal vision, your dreams of who you want to be. To ask what’s missing?
Ready to widen your comfort zone? Ready to confront and tame or destroy a few dragons?
