I was listening to a Creative Visualization video the other day.
I closed my eyes and decided to go along for the ride.
I sat back and got comfortable on my sofa.
I looked inside my mind.
The way one does when one wants to think.
I saw a glowing ember and followed it in.
It took me to a place inside myself.
The voice on the video told me to find a struggle.
This was easy because living on the edge I am always in the midst of a struggle.
I looked deeper at the issue that I am now facing and split it open to see what was really inside.
What was holding it together, and made it impossible for me to break free from.
I cut through the skin, it was the toughest.
Now I was able to peel back the legs and dissected it like a frog.
I pinned the legs and the belly back to look inside.
There was a blockage staring back at me.
It was a deep dark hole that I was scared to look in.
I started to crawl slowly because if it was inside of me making me behave a sort of way then I wanted to look at the monster and send it back to its black hole.
Why I am stuck in low-paying jobs, feel like I do not have respect?
Why at fifty-five I am not living comfortably as the calendar says I should.
I bought into this reality for me since I did not have one of my own.
I adopted it like a stepchild.
This lie staring at me had to go;
It would not bring me happiness.
I had to use my imagination to create a life I would love.
Like a little girl with the world at my fingertips.
I could have anything I want.
What did I really want?
What do I want to do with my life?
I could create a life of my dreams.
It is during a Creative Visualization session that I imagine a life of love and beauty of peace of financial freedom,
Where all my bills are paid.
I can travel and vacation and I can be at peace with whatever has happened in my life.
