Be willing to do the inner work, the deep healing work.
I mean looking under every rock, under every excuse you’ve ever made, under every lie you’ve ever told, under every pattern you’ve ever repeated, on every ounce of self-doubt or fear or negative thought you have about yourself. It means looking under every moment that sticks out to you at all.
It’s listening to your inner voice while being self-aware enough to recognize when your subconscious is trying to battle you with intentions that no longer serve you and then being willing to shine a flashlight into the darkness and uncover why.
It’s not pretty.
Sure, sometimes it’s meditation and crystals and a beautiful glistening tear but most of the time its uncomfortable and dark and unknown. Most of the time you feel like you’re going insane.
Sometimes it’s ugly crying so hard that you throw up. Sometimes it’s staring into space for an hour and not being able to wrap your mind around one single solitary thought.
Sometimes it’s forcing yourself to sleep because you just don’t know what else to do and you couldn’t possibly write one more word in your journal without fear of losing a finger.
Sometimes it’s clear and profound, but sometimes it’s terrifying and ugly.
But at the end of the day, it is what will give you TRUE freedom.
And the truth is, 99% of people aren’t willing to ever go this deep. They don’t go past the surface level and if they do, they stop at the first “eye opening moment” they find and think they’ve got it all figured out. Which makes me sad because by stopping there you’re still allowing yourself to be imprisoned in your own mind.
Never stop questioning.
Look inward for these answers, that’s the only place you’re going to find them.
Because after all, evolution is a never-ending process if you’re truly committed to it.
