Exercise #4 in Stage Five of the Creativity Journey – Walk Forward
As you begin to walk the individual path of your unique purpose, the traveling may become more difficult. It’s hard to say what is in store for you. Your path may start off smooth, flat, and easy and then you may turn a corner and see that the road ahead of you kicks up at a steep grade. Regardless of what is to come, the way will be easier if you lighten your load.
Refer back to the notes you made after imagining what was in your pack. Was there something in there like the blankie that was in mine that you can leave behind? As silly as it will certainly feel to release that item, it’s worth doing. You don’t need to tell anyone what you’re up to so what do you have to lose?
If you do actually have a physical item, try to let it go. If you don’t have a physical item, make or find a representation of it and release that. My need for financial security is one of the major things weighing me down so at this stage in my journey, I took a dollar from my wallet, closed my eyes and felt my need for money, and then I took that dollar out into the world and dropped it in a donation box. What can you leave behind?
