We all, lucky us, have baggage. No one is exempt, sorry. We all have frailties and failings and our percentage of family stories. Our cellular memories are rich in shared worrisome fears and beliefs, all products and programming of the human condition. Like I said, lucky us. But it doesn’t mean you have to keep the baggage and bring it out on every trip and move and action you take. The ticket to a new and different location is you. You’re the conductor, the driver of the trip, not the passenger.
Being the passenger is a passive state. Of course it’s nice to relax, enjoy the ride and scenery and see what develops. However, this doesn’t necessarily lead us in the direction we always want to head. Pull that itinerary out for holidays and vacations. In the meantime, wear the maestro-director hat to indicate taking charge of destinations and creative details.
For a moment, visualize the old airport days when passengers would have bags and heaped bags of items to load into cargo space, each one colorful, lumpy, full, sometimes disheveled and heavy. Take it one step further and imagine those bags filled with the emotional profusion of misguided and misdirected beliefs weighing us down on our journeys. Not difficult to imagine. Now, instead see the brilliance in the carry-on-bag, light, easy, manageable, negotiable, colorful, organized and always future-ready. What a difference.
Now with the cost of carry-on bags, it’s actually cheaper to box up goodies, the golf clubs, skis, bikes etc and have UPS deliver them to the agreeable destination. Thank you Brown. Easier, less hassle and you still have the ability to play. ~We all need to remember to “play.”~ As aware, conscious, soul travelers, we have carry-on’s and boxes sent; what a great new way to go!
Perfect, once again analogy. Time to box up those old emotional heavy-weights, the sinking beliefs that keep us stagnant, petrified, lost, incapable, fearful, stuck, limited and even incompetent and rid ourselves of the constrictions. (It’s could be literally time to box up extra debris, excess and unused unwanted stuff as well: Garage sale, homeless shelters, animal shelters, Good Will here we go!)
But to literally eliminate the emotional traumas, negative destructive behavior and limiting tales, they need to be removed, cleansed from our thinking, the old 8-Tracks and cassettes, obliterated.
Time for your daily quick visualization:
1. Imagine yourself in your garage or attic surrounded by bulky engulfing “stuff” and old overly large suitcases.
2. Next to your feet are brown boxes, tape.
3. Box up, pack up said excess. Don’t worry what it is. Just do it.
4. Utilize old luggage for removal and packing.
5. Gather boxes and cases removing them from emotional attic/garage.
6. Time for disposal.
*Dynamite, though could be messy. Your choice.
7. Continue elimination of emotional baggage until all is ash.
8. Scoop up ash and cinders and place around garden to accelerate plant growth.
9. This is transformative.
Do this daily till old beliefs of worry, doubt, fear, victimhood, martyrdom, you-name-it, are cleared from your thinking. It doesn’t take long and the rewards are huge. Make it a moon-cycle of 28 days to make it real, visceral and true.
Remember all beliefs need to be transmuted, literally changing form and composition to have them removed and transformed. Leaving emotions behind for others to take-on is not a courteous or thoughtful move. Thus, the metamorphic fires. Perhaps that’s where the analogy of hell came from in the first place. To literally burn away old beliefs and habits so heaven can reign within us. I like that.
Travel light, be the conductor, direct and clear in thinking, and open to the love of the world around you. Life is good.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
