All of my life I have believed I have to push and push and push – that “getting ahead”, or maybe just staying even, required discomfort, pain (“No pain no gain”), uncertainty.
Then, last week in an accountability meeting, a co-attendee said to me (upon looking at one of my vision journal pages that showed me outside my comfort zone): “What would it look like if you are in your comfort zone?”
You know that is how angels speak to us – through the voices of other we invite into our circle. And I listened because I think I was suddenly straddling an abyss over a complete world view change.
It struck me so hard that just 2 days later I have create my “Inside MyComfort Zone” vision board. Done generally as any vision board/journal page is: run through magazines and my photos and Pinterest; pull out words and pictures and textures that tug at my interest. In this instance, I let everything sit overnight and sat down to make the board today (the day before christmas – my holiday gift to me).
Vision boards need to tap into intuition so you can’t think too hard. I ran back through what I had gathered and started situating things on the page without thinking of rhyme, reason or agenda. Here you see the result.
The questions at the top, the impetus for the Vision Journal page: What does “inside my comfort zone” look like? And why do I think I must always push outside it?
I will mine the Vision Journal page for the answers that my subconscious mind put together through morning pages in the coming week – the rest of my holiday gift to myself. It’s almost like reading Tarot cards: what do you see? what does it mean: how will you use this information?
