Stepping out of our comfort zone is about taking risks. You do not have to climb Mt. Everest to take a risk. In fact, you probably are taking them each and every day of your life. But, are you taking the RIGHT risks. Risks that help you create a life well lived or are you taking risks by default. When you have choices to make AND you look to nature for support, you will see signs all around you that will guide you.
These signs in your life are meant to give you pause. They are meant to have you slow down, see them, understand them from your own innate wisdom and then, act upon them. Then, take the risk that that sign is showing you so that you are creating a life well lived by design and not by default.
Signs can be seen through the 4 elements. Water teaches us about our emotions ~ that we can have them but that they do not define who we are. Air helps clear the ego-chatter and focus in on our own hearts. Earth helps ground ourselves and raise our vibrations and Fire will elevate our spiritual self. When you have a question that needs to be answered, see what element nature gives us. If it’s an animal sign and that animal for example is a water animal, consider how your emotions are driving you. If you see an Eagle soaring, how can you use this to elevate your spiritual self in making a decision. A hawk, on the other hand, may be guiding you to clear your thoughts. Too, a squirrel or a rabbit, may be telling you that some physical grounding is necessary before hearing your inner wisdom.
Signs, like these, and others will guide your choices, and show you the risks to take. Risks come in all shapes and sizes. Jim Whittaker, the first American to climb Mt. Everest says “If you aren’t living on the edge, you are taking up too much space. ” By that he means, if you are not stepping out of your comfort zone, you are not celebrating life enough. By taking risks, risks that you have been given signs to take, you are living on the edge. You are testing yourself and being out of your comfort zone like Jim Whittaker shares in this inspiring video:
Take time to enter nature, learn and grow from it, see the signs, get the answers to those questions and then take a risk. Create a life well lived by design not by default. You do not have to climb Mt. Everest, you can take a walk in the park, sit by the ocean and look for signs. They are there and they will guide your path ~ if you let them! Have you ever done this and been given a clear sign?
