Do you ever feel stuck in your life, but you are afraid of leaving your comfort zone, so you settle for complacency? Do you ever feel like you are being nudged to make a big change such as relocating or job change or even relationship change, but don’t because the unknown is too scary?
Many of us, including myself, avoid change because it’s uncomfortable and scary.  I personally like my box, but I also hate it at the same time.  The term “comfort zone” should really be called “dead zone”, why? Because nothing grows in our comfort zone, not us, not relationships, not businesses, nothing.  It has been my experience with my “comfort zone” that when I refuse to venture out of it, I become depressed, resentful, angry, lonely, stuck, and at times suicidal.
It has only been those times when I have dared to step out of it that I have lived.  When I look back at my life the happiest times were outside of my comfort zone. But when I get that urge to change something fear creeps back in and says “no, don’t leave your comfort zone, it isn’t safe out there.”
When it comes to change, whatever the change is, we put up so many blocks for ourselves.  My number one block is money.  I am low-income (disability) and live on a very tight budget and can not afford much at all.  But I make do and sacrifice some things like owning a car for now, but that very tight budget keeps me from pursuing dreams like owning my own home and not having to rent anymore.  I am very fortunate that I am renting a room in a friends home, but I would love to have my own home.
Lately I keep getting the message that a big change is coming into my life. Everywhere I go I see the angel numbers 555.   The meaning of angel number 555 is all about transition and welcoming change. It is a friendly reminder and warning from your angels and guides that it is safe to make the change that is on your mind. Jump into the energy of creativity, forward movement, and excitement.  Also, lately all my Tarot cards indicate that change is coming and needed, but I am not sure what that change is yet. But it has caused me some major anxiety and I have been really looking at why, hence this e-news.
I know that the Universe, God, Source, whatever you want to call the Great Divine has never failed me, I also know it wants the absolute best for me.  So, what am I afraid of?  What is the root of my anxiety?
I know one is lack of money, but I also believe the Universe will provide everything I need to make the changes it is directing me to make.  So, again I must ask what is my fear about leaving my current comfort zone?  Am I afraid of what I may have to leave behind? Or maybe I am afraid of what’s out there!  All I do know for sure is if the Universe wants me to change something it is going to change.
If you know me, you know I am a person of great faith.  I trust in my divine beings completely for they have never ever let me fall.  But getting myself to get out of the way so the miracle can happen, well that is hard for me.
I have choices,
  • I can fight the change, which is only going to cause worse anxiety and probably depression.
  • I can prolong the change from happening which is only going to cause anxiety, doubt, and fear.
  • Or I can embrace the change and move forward and grow and probably enter a feeling of freedom, happiness, and peace.
If I know this, why am I fighting the change?  I feel like a baby bird at the edge of my nest looking down and thinking “but what if I can’t fly?” The thing is I know the Universe will be my wings and my flight will be beautiful and smooth.
So, flying it is!  Where this new adventure I feel coming will take me I have no idea.  But I do know whatever it is, wherever it is I am safe, and I am happy!
Where are you in your life?  Stuck in the graveyard of the ‘Comfort Zone’ or flying onto a new adventure?  Come join me on the flight and leave whatever is keeping you caged up.
