Breaking Through The Bubble

When working with clients who are struggling with turmoils in their lives and/or emotional upheavals, I use the analogy of a balloon to help them through their current challenges.

Picture yourself in a balloon, all is well – until you want to break free. To get to that outside world, to the possibilities that lie outside the closed space, you have to get through the balloon’s outer surface. You can’t just step through, you have to push and twist and shove. You will probably sweat a little, have some not-so-nice words popping into your head and even, perhaps, off your tongue, but you struggle through, because you know that on the other side there is a great freedom.

This struggle is what we experience when we are in the process of changing our lives, breaking free of our past and walking into the opportunities of the future.

Emotional chaos and roadblocks along your path are just notices from the Universe that it is time to move onto the next step of your journey. It is telling you that the current (or past) way of life isn’t good enough any longer. You have learned those lessons, grown as much as you can from that lifestyle. Now it is time for new lessons, new possibilities – a new “you”.

Are you currently struggling to break through a balloon? Oh how exciting!! I wonder what lies on the other side, for you?
