I was talking to a friend last night and she tells me that her job is killing her. She’s been doing it for a long time and she doesn’t want to do it anymore. I asked her if she has nightmares and to her surprise she tells me she’s been having vivid dreams where she feels trapped – the subconscious trying to tell her what’s wrong. She’s having trouble sleeping. It’s affecting her health. She knows intuitively she has to let go but she can’t. It’s not logical. She makes good money, she has benefits and a retirement plan.
We all have to pay for food and a roof over our heads. Which turns money/benefits/retirement plans into claws that cling to our primal security. That keep us frozen and rigid like ice.
But if your health is important to you, you have to make changes.
We get depressed because we know that we’re not what we should be. We cling to security and to an image that if not upheld makes us feel like a failure. What will my parents think? What will my friends think?
We need to move from ice to water. To become more fluid and move to where our intuition is trying to tell us.
