What are you passionate about? Do you love animals? Do you get fired up about women’s rights? Who is your favorite sports team? Have you ever marched in a protest? I’d love to hear about THAT! What motivates you to leave your warm cozy home to volunteer, to serve, to work a little harder? What fire’s you up?
Fire is one of the elements that help us understand how we are wired. Over the next three months we are going to explore how you are wired. The intention of understanding how you are wired is to have more compassion for yourself. Yes. More compassion for how you showed up on the planet.
Your beautiful unique mix of the four elements: Fire, Water, Earth, Air.
Fire feels like passion. Like a fire in the belly.
Water represents emotions.
Do you feel your emotions strongly? Maybe more strongly than others?
Earth people live their life solid and steady. Grounded. Reliable.
Air people are great thinkers and talkers. Lots of ideas and so many different interests.
Which one of these elements to you resonate with?
Today let’s talk about your fire.
Think of a time in your life where you spoke out. Maybe it was the time your told your parents how you really felt. Did you change your major in college? Did you quit college? Are you an artist? A musician? A poet?
Step back in time with me for a minute. Imagine with your mind’s eye the time when you said no. Or when you said yes. Breathe. For real.
Just pause here for a moment and be with that feeling. Do you feel proud? Do you feel grateful to that younger version of yourself who made that choice?
Let’s move on to another happy thought. Shift gears to pause and appreciate a wonderful day of your life. Remember the birthday party, the marriage, birth of a child, graduation, an unexpected promotion, or your favorite team winning the championship. How does it feel? Place your hand on your heart. Allow the corners of your mouth raise into a smile.
Memories serve as your emotional compass. When we remember a time from the past, we re-live the same emotions of that very experience
Let’s just ignore any negativity that may have happened next. Being in the moments of bliss attracts more moments of bliss. You have an emotional compass guiding you to your bliss. That compass allows you to choose people, places and things that make you happy.
The emotion you feel is like lighting a match. The match that lights a lantern for you to see clearly what brings you joy. What are you feeling right now? You see emotions can create movement. That translates into action. But emotions can also slow us down to pause and reflect.
Fiery feelings invite us to release the heat. This isn’t always nice and neat. In fact, strong emotions can be quite messy. Maybe we say too much. Or we feel fear and say nothing at all. This PEP TALK gives you permission to be messy. To not say it right or do it right. Permission to “…feel the fear and do it anyway.”
Congratulations. You are human. Being human is messy. It’s meant to be. Fire is dangerous. But its also warm. Fire can consume whatever is in its path. But it can also clear the land for new growth. Fire will burn down a house. But it will also heat a home.
You get to choose how much or how little fire is in your life. Even if you never learned to collect kindling, keep it dry, roll some newspaper, light the ends, fan the flame. You can learn. Fan the flame ’til the wood glows. Then you’ve got a nice fire. I invite you to fan the flame of your passion. I love to see you glow.
