The “you” who dreams of flying has no wings

Reading Time: 4 minutes  

The “I’ that dreams of flying is the one that believes she has no wings. In order to become your potential, you need to release your current identity because it carries false limitations that do not allow you to fly to your destination.
This is the first article in a series of articles describing Your Flight to Greatness: your Metamorphosis from Caterpillar Self to Butterfly Woman.
Use the tabs above to see the other articles in the series.

If you want to go from HERE (where you are now) to THERE (where your dream is, where you embody the potential pulsating in you) then you want a transformation. You are like caterpillar dreaming of wings. The goal seems almost impossible!
“Why,” Caterpillar You asks, “if I’m working so hard and I want to live my dream more than anything, why on earth am I still HERE? Why am I not THERE?”
But here’s the hidden truth: while most of us want transformation, most of us resist change. Since transformation is change, that leaves us stuck. Why do we resist what we want?

Creativity gives you access to your Divinity

Reading Time: < 1 minute
Daily Inspirational Words
Creativity gives you access to your Divinity.
When you empty yourself of “shoulds” and “cants” and instead open your heart and senses to the wonder of your life, the beauty of this world and the mystery of your potential, you open a passage for The Divine to dance in your heart, sing into your ears and open your eyes to the infinite potential in you.
Do not allow fear, logic, the expectations of ordinary people or our cultural bias towards the functional and the predictable to steal your capacity to imagine.
When you imagine, you are listening to God’s instructions.

Poem- I have not yet heard a bird

Reading Time: < 1 minute I have not yet heard a bird
By Maria Mar
 
I have not yet heard a bird
crying because it can’t sing.
I have not yet seen a flower
wilt before it blossoms
from fear that its colors will not delight.
I have not yet followed a scent
that hid its essence in shame.
I have not yet touched a stone
that coiled, feeling not enough.
Yet, I have heard your silence
cry the truth that you betray.
And I have seen your beauty
wilt while you try to fix yourself.
I have missed the scent of your soul
from your words, your deeds, your work.
And I miss the touch of your presence
while you wait ‘till another day
to do more and be more
stealing your fragrance from the world.

You're not there yet. Why?

Reading Time: 2 minutes So you are not where you should be
at this stage of your life…
Are you swimming against the tide?
 

Why are others getting the good contracts while you struggle to stay afloat?
Why are others with equal or less talent shining bright, visible and credible among the top tier of your field, while you fight to get a gig?
Why are you still NOT there, in spite of all your hard work?
What’s wrong with you? What do you lack that others have? You should be farther ahead at this stage of your life.

This is what you ask yourself deep down in your heart when you see yourself where you are right now, your goals so far away.
You punish yourself with judgment. You compare yourself to others who are farther ahead. You may act tough and give yourself a pep talk, but secretly you begin to feel like a failure. You begin to ask yourself
—“What’s wrong with me? I’m already 30 (or 40 or 50) and my dream/purpose/goal is nowhere in sight.”
You begin to wonder if you should not give up on your dreams […]
