When a door opens, walk through it. Trust that the door has opened for a reason and you have been guided to it. Sometimes we have a tendency to over-analyse or agonize over the decision, but it is quicker to simply go through the door and discover what’s there as that’s the only way to know. Even if it doesn’t seem right at first, opening this door may lead to another door that will take us where we need to go.
Doors open when the time is right for us to enter a new space, metaphorically speaking, and we can have faith that walking through is the right thing to do. Sometimes we linger in the threshold because we are afraid of leaving our old life for a life we know nothing about. We may have voices inside of our heads that try to hold us back or people in our lives saying discouraging things. Mainly these voices are our doubts, as we hold onto the familiar in our lives..
I have a very stubborn streak inside of me, and have clung to the familiar because I fear insecurity. And have stayed in jobs too long, and suffered with stress and put up with obnoxious bombastic bosses who revelled in clicking their fingers to make me jump, and I complied with how high, because I was always trying to please and cope. And I failed to use one little word… “No”.
Because of my mediumistic skills some of my colleagues and acquaintances often seek advice. Thinking I perhaps should hold some magic key to show them the correct doorway in their lives helping them make their correct choices.. I wish I did have a Magic Key, for I would have used it long ago.
But what I do have is my intuition.. I know when something feels right, I know when it feels wrong.. And the biggest thing I have learnt to do is to TRUST those gut feelings.
So my advice to anyone who is embarking on going through a new door in their lives is to ‘Listen’ to your ‘Gut’, not the voices of others. And if it Feels right then dare to step through your door and see where it leads..
Several Years ago I dared to step through a door to an alien world of working with disabled people. If I had listened to my fearful voice, If I had listened to others, I would never have made the change and I would have stuck with the career path I had been on for the best part of thirty years….I stepped through the door.. And what a wonderful world I found.
(I have now chosen another door as I take time out this Summer to enjoy all it has to offer. As I reconnect with my Qi-Gong, and Art. I will still be posting but not as often as you may have already noticed.. And I hope to try to keep up with all of my most loyal supporters with your posts in my ‘block’ visits that many are now used to. :-) ) In the mean time………
There are many doors that open in the course of our lives, leading us into new relationships, jobs, friendships, and creative inspirations.
Our lives up to this point are the result of all the doors we have walked through, and our continued growth depends on our willingness to keep moving into new spaces. And as one door closes another is always opening..
I’ve found that when I hesitate, and hover in the doorway, I neither move forward or back. I get stuck in the middle. And I’m reminded of the quote, “He who hesitates is Lost”….I need to once again grasp the door handle and push the door open and step forward with the faith that what awaits on the other side is meant to be.
Every time we walk through an open door, we create a sense memory that encourages us to move into the new fearlessly. Each doorway is like a new chapter in our lives.
When we enter the new space, we almost always feel a thrill and a new feeling of confidence, in ourselves and in the universe. We have stepped across the threshold into a new life.
Embrace all Your Doors in life..
Treasure The Journey.
