Taking A Look At Your Potential [ + recorded visualization ]
Imagine that you are a country… your mind – body is a country… and one of your states is called “a potential.” So if you were to fly above this state… how would it look like? Is it an undeveloped land full of hard to traverse canyons? Or is its every inch expanded and every stone turned?
Unlike natural land, our potential likes to be explored, and the more we do it the bigger it gets. We hit the road to get there, as if we were to reach the horizon line, but there is no “there” – except a new horizon to be reached.
What potential? To be who? To do what?
I’m not talking about being promoted at work every two weeks, this is not everyone’s goal.
It can be potential to connect with others, create relationships, to heal, potential to give up grudges, change sadness to happiness, to become free, and potential of our all spiritual powers.
In the recent past I heard many people saying: my goal is to use my full potential.
I thought it’s a bit naive… even if you plan on living 111 years, to use your full potential you’d need to get pretty busy. So most of us will die with some unexplored potential. Maybe we could just keep is mind not to waste it. Just like we could do with the natural resources.
Our potential is always expanding
…and as long as we have mental and physical ability to move the line, the potential is there.
Who determines what you can do?
When we give others the power to decide for us, we allow them to put limits on our potential. To manipulate us. It is a sad state, and yet you may notice how many of us live with limiting beliefs, someone or something imposed on us. Sometimes we do it to ourselves. And how we admire those that were told they can’t, but they proved something different.
Imagine that others can admire you. Even more. And if you are happy with the area of your potential you are using, there is for certain something in your life you believe you can’t do, you think it is too hard… so look, get details, and decide – it starts from the decision – decide you are rejecting the limiting belief. You can do this. You can have this. You can expand.
It is the best to sit when you listen to these visualizations. Once I started listening to this one, I had several different images. Sometimes nothing happens, and it’s ok. Be patient with your imagination.
My favorite image of my potential was a mountain with snow on top. When I reached the higher level I got dizzy, I had a fear of heights. That could mean: fear of being visible, or reclaiming my power / responsibility. You can see the images in a metaphorical , symbolic way.
