Is Your Ship Sinking??
Have you heard the phrase rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic? It means we are spending so much time arranging and re-arranging our outward conditions while we are slowing sinking into the abyss of unrecognized fear and outdated beliefs. It happens when we are attempting to ‘fix’ what isn’t working. Some time ago I worked with a client that was having trouble in her marriage. Rather than seek counseling or face the truth about their relationship, they went on vacation in Italy, racking up a great deal of debt, physically and emotionally.
It is difficult to stabilize on unstable territory. Eventually, we have to go into the dark to do the deep work and face the fears and beliefs that are holding us back.
I see this happening frequently in today’s economy. There is a reason for the shake-up. The Universe is giving us the opportunity to empty down to the core to find the real truth for ourselves.
Eric Butterworth says, "There is only one way by which you can achieve prosperity. It is to take charge of your mind. You may be looking for some magic formula, some new metaphysical cliché’ that will change things. But if you want to change our life, you will have to alter your thoughts."
I believe in order to alter our thoughts we have to get to the core of what we believe. Doing our inner work will remarkable change our outer circumstances.
