Do you constantly find yourself coming up against the same problem?
Like you're going in circles?
Feel like you've done lots of work on 'You' but you haven't really gotten anywhere?
You have come smack bang up against your “issue.”
You'll recognize it when you look down at the stuff beside you labeled “baggage!”
Your “issue” may be one of personal or sexual identity, it may be a major loss, a traumatic event, an addiction, or a painful childhood.
Your “issue” immediately resonates.
It's your sore point, your soft spot, the hot button that ignorant people unwittingly push!
Along with an issue you've also got a treasure.
But your treasure won't look like a gift ...
How do you find your treasure?
First you gotta take a deep breath and muster the courage to look at your issue.
Sit with it.
Make friends with it.
Buy it a Coke!
When you're feeling more comfortable, you can start to relate to each other.
You relax and put your feet up.
Your issue lets down its guard takes off its heavy coat.
Once you share a few laughs and start to get to know your issue, you find out it's
not so bad.
In fact kinda friendly.
And it knows all about you.
Rather than being your enemy, perhaps it's really a friend?
When you've spent some time hangin' with each other and start to really connect, your issue shows you something …
it's sparkly, precious and beautiful - and it's for you.
It's your treasure.
Yes - your treasure wrapped up in your issue.
Very well disguised as the thing you are most likely to reject and deny!
That's enough to think about for today.
Next time we will give you a tool and sit with the question:
"What are you going to do with it?"
Til then, wishing you the best of days,
