The Magical Guide to Bliss insight: Build joyful connections
“If your guard is up, let it down. If you’ve constructed a defensive wall to protect yourself and keep all the bad guys out, don’t forget who that wall also prevents from getting in – the good guys.”
Instead of building a fortress to protect your heart and soul, let your guard down and open up to joy. When there are times of great loss, hurt, or disappointment, perhaps your gut instinct is to contract and push away further vulnerability. While you may think that constructing a wall is a good option in the short term, doing so can prevent great things from coming your way long run. Take the risk to seek out positive connections and you are well on your way to a beautiful life. If you are too walled in already, it’s not too late to find ways to demolish that wall or climb over it and enjoy the colorful world on the other side. When you start letting go of your fear, you can focus on and recognize the possibilities that await you. When you turn towards love and away from fear, the good guys will come to assist you. Each time a generous soul arrives; your faith will increase. Revel in the freedom of movement prevented by these self-imposed structures. The choice is yours. Build a bridge of joy and take the necessary steps to create a life from which you will never want to take a vacation!
