Trust Your Gut, NOT the Crabs
Ever feel like the people in your life just don’t get you?
Or like they’re trying, unconsciously or obviously, to keep you small?
Ever hear about the “bucket of crabs mentality?”
We humans get spooked when people in our life change – it upsets the energy dynamic, and makes us question their own choices… if we’re unaware and unwilling to talk about these things.
See, when you rise up and make creative moves or take bold action, people in your life might get scared that things will change for them… (or they get a big jealous that they’re not taking action on their own dreams.)
It’s like when you have a bucket of live crabs: when one crab tries to climb higher, and get out of the bucket, the other crabs reach up and drag her back down with them.
Most people don’t have the personal awareness to see their Crab Mentality.
So people all around you might be unconsciously lashing out, reacting and trying to keep you small so their world doesn’t change One. Little. Bit.
That’s why you’ve gotta trust your gut, Creatrix.
You’ve gotta fiercely tune into your own knowing, your personal truth, and your own sense of self.
AND, you’ve gotta surround yourself with people who are working on their own grand dreams who are going to cheer you on, not drag you down.
When you’re an artist, healer-teacher, coach, doctor, or creative entrepreneur, you’re always striving to do something different.
When you’re a high-achiever, you’re usually aiming to break barriers and create a new level of performance.
Are you surrounded by people who will hold your hand while cheering you on? People who will tell you it’s ok to screw up – and to keep going?
I might be one of the luckiest sisters on the planet: I have 3 siblings, and they’re all smart, caring, and 100% supportive of my ideas, goals, and dreams…(even when they don’t totally get what I’m doing, they’re cheering me on – Thanks, B, B, and B! Yes – they all have B names!)
Every book, movie, painting, or important product you’ve ever loved or admired was created by someone with an idea that came out of the ether:
YOUR creative ideas, business, or unique innovations may seem too risky to someone else, but YOUR gut knows.
There’s something magic there.
And it’s worthwhile to pursue it.
Even if it doesn’t turn out exactly as we originally thought, we learn ourselves through the doing.
And we might just make something better than we ever dreamed.
