#stringaspread, day 23.
How is the past influencing my conscious aspirations around expanding the business?
To say I have a passion for helping people is trite. I have seen and suffered a number of injustices throughout my life, particularly around the notions of my health and my identity. I've been a witness to bureaucracy in its worst forms, where humanity was stripped from process and only the tick-boxes mattered.
When policy dominates people, when the law is unjust? Break the law.
I talk tarot a lot, professionally... but I talk justice more. Especially with my clients - most readings are some form of shadow work, and that necessitates an understanding of the structures that cause folks to reject themselves.
It also involves a lot of studying those structures and how to transform them. It means knowing when to choose Exploring forth and when to stand back and put a book in the Little Free Library as a way to move forward. It means I always offer barter for folks running fundraisers for their medical and transport needs - two things that get so easily snowballed in the web of chronic illness and capitalism.
It also means crafting a potential long-term plan that is free from that 6 of Tomes Rx as it affects my own engagement in the demeaning and unjust power structures, as best I'm able. If I'm gonna do this, I need to be mindful of the timing of release from various supports, and be prepared to give as well as I've gotten - both in support, and in rebellion.
When someone on your team posts this and you are thinking "Absolutely! I'm so glad I met you and you said yes to this business!". And she comments back that her post was about ME! #grateful#blessedlife#bossbabes#havingfun😄
Your mind is a very powerful thing, and most of us take it for granted. We believe we aren't in control of what we think because our thoughts seem to fly in and out all day long. But you are in control of your thoughts, and you become what you think about. And that little kernel of truth is the secret power of the mind.
The secret" is that you are what you think. You become what you think about. You can create the life you want, simply by thinking the right thoughts.
We are creatures of habit. We tend to follow the picture in our minds created by our parents, our neighborhoods, our towns and the part of the world from which we come. For good or for bad.
But we don't have to. We each have a mind of our own, capable of imagining life the way we want it. We can say yes or no to the million choices we each encounter every single day. Sometimes it's good to say no, of course, or we wouldn't get anything at all done. But the most successful people say yes to life overall. They are open to possibilities. They believe they have the power to make changes in their lives. They aren't afraid to try new things or to fail.
