Take A Leap!

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
– Helen Keller

blog4One of my favorite cards in the Tarot is the Fool. He is the ultimate archetype of the part of us who takes that leap of faith, regardless of fear, and begins the new journey.  Don’t let his name “fool”. This is not the foolishness of thoughtlessness.  It is the quality of trusting life and the Universe and Self, of having faith that if you leap the “net will appear”.

It is no small task, leaving behind what is known, and embracing the unknown.  It is one of the biggest challenges there is.  It seems that part of being human is to resist change, yet change is the only constant. When you look back over your life, isn’t leaping into the unknown something you have done over and over?  And do you see how each leap has led to more self-awareness, greater awakening and rewards you were not expecting? Think about it.

This leap into the unknown is occurring not only in our personal lives, but in our collective existence.  We as the human species are at the precipice.  Through centuries of disregard and degradation of our Mother Earth and each other, we have pushed ourselves to the edge.  We are free spirits who chose to come learn the lessons of limitation in 3D-4D through experiencing this world of duality based in fear.  We came to break free of these limitations by remembering and activating who we truly are, leaping into 5D unity consciousness based in Love.

NOW is the time we leave behind the old, destructive duality paradigm and leap into Unity consciousness!

A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.
– Albert Einstein

When we each, in our individual lives, commit to consciously taking this leap, we free up the blocked energy we have personally created, and this lightens the larger energy field of the collective.  This is the GREATEST service we can do!

What does leaping require of us?

  • letting go of ego identity
  • aligning with Higher Self identity
  • willingness to “feel the fear, but do it anyway”
  • willingness to change
  • willingness to not know
  • love
  • faith
  • a big yell!

Do you notice how much willingness is involved? Even when we feel we are being pushed by circumstances beyond our control, at some point we must take the leap.  It is always a choice.  We are always leaping into the unknown in every NOW moment, and we fare best when we do it consciously.  Do you see?

I invite you to look at what is emerging in you that requires taking a leap.  What fears are holding you back from consciously taking that step off the precipice? One of the biggest fears we carry is the fear of “What will others think of me?  Will I be judged as crazy, as a troublemaker, as too idealistic?” Or, “What if I fail. What if I succeed?” Are you willing to feel the fear, but do it anyway?
