How To Transcend Your Comfort Zone

♥ Please see my Youtube video for more about how to transcend your comfort zone ♥

p
Comfort zones. We all have them.

p
Having a comfort zone is part of being a human being. It’s natural. It’s normal.

p
A comfort zone may last a few weeks or a few years. It may be subtle or it may be glaringly obvious.

p
What is a comfort zone? Simply put, a comfort zone is a plateau of evolution. A place where we feel stuck. Things feel heavy, slow, boring, tedious, lifeless, blaaaaaaa….

p
Somewhere, deep within our bones, we somehow know there is more … but what is it? How do we reach for it when we don’t even know what it is? Or, if we do know what it is … how do we experience what we want if we’ve never experienced it before? What do we do? How do we transcend?
p

A comfort zone might be an addiction. An unhealthy eating habit. A pattern of procrastination. A suffocating relationship that no longer brings growth. A job that holds no joy, that grimly “pays the bills.”
p

So, my dear friends, I ask you: What’s your comfort zone?
p

SPREADING OUR WINGS
p

As we begin to consider how we will transcend our comfort zone, let us consider a lesser-known definition of the word transcend.
p

To transcend means “to become independent of.”
p

What does it mean to be independent? Well, to become independent of something, we become free. We spread our wings and we fly away, up up up into the beautiful sky. We go into the unknown.
p

If you are reading this article, then, chances are, you are ready. You are ready to transcend and find your freedom.
p

In my work as a life coach and healer, I have found that transcendence tends to occur in two major steps. Both steps are equally important to the process.
p

BECOMING FREE IN 2 STEPS

Step One: Ask the Divine for Help.

 

It takes humility to recognize that we, as human beings, do not have complete control. One of the reasons why AA programs are so effective is because they begin with the basic premise that in order to transcend alcoholism, we must first ask God (or a higher power) for help.
p

This is so powerful.
p

Indeed, change does not happen without Divine intervention, aiding our efforts.

p
Make no mistake: every time something miraculous happens to someone, every time some great change or good fortune occurs, there is Divine assistance at play.

p
Our egos might want to resist this timeless wisdom, but if we can momentarily detach ourselves from ego and simply feel with our hearts, the truth becomes clear.

p
It does take humility to admit we need help. This is not always easy. Nevertheless, once we can tap into that open space of humility, we open ourselves as a channel for the Divine to work miracles in our lives: to bring us the right people, resources, information, and energy that we need in order to transcend our comfort zone.

p
My dear friends, I encourage you to not skip ahead to the next step before asking for help! Most people skip ahead to step two without fully feeling step one.

p
Indeed, step one is absolutely vital!

p
If we want to change, but do not humbly ask for assistance from the Divine, then the action that we take is often unfocused, ineffective, frustrating, or it may take incredibly large amounts of sheer willpower that may eventually drain us. We may even eventually quit, because we are burdened and exhausted by the heavy weight that comes with falsely believing that we are in 100% in control.
p

Step Two: Take Inspired Action

p
Yes, my friend, you do have a huge part to play in your evolution. You must take action in order for change to happen. You can’t simply stay in your pajamas all day, begging God for a miracle.
p

However, the action you take must be first inspired by the Divine.

p
What does this mean?
p

Well, acting from a place of inspiration means becoming more and more in tune with our intuition. We must cultivate intuition in order to know which action is right action and which ideas are just coming from ego and are a drain on our precious energy.

p
How do we cultivate greater levels of intuition, you ask?

p
The answer is simple: We engage in spiritual practice. We meditate. We do yoga. We read spiritual books. We participate in spiritual community. We turn off the TV and we get out into Nature. We turn off our phones and breathe. We pay attention to the foods (fuel) we are putting into our precious bodies. We slow down. We be.

p
As we devote more time in our daily lives to spiritual practice, our ability to tap into our intuition increases. We begin to hear what the Divine wants from us. We begin to feel the flow.
p

Through Divinely-guided intuition, we clearly know the precise action to take that is most efficient on our path of transcendence, out of the comfort zone.

p
By combining powerful action (step 2) with humble recognition of the Divine powers that assist us (step 1), we become free. We move into a future that is more abundant with light and joy. We shed our heavy past burdens.

p
In truth, being stuck is an illusion.

p
In truth, there is no stuck.

p
The Universe wants us to evolve.

p
The Universe wants us to grow.

p
But don’t just take my word for it … test it out, and see for yourself!
