What Stops Us From Our Desires

There is something I hear a lot from women and I want to share it with you today.

It’s often the thing that stops us cold from really going for our desires.

I was speaking to a beautiful woman recently about her desire to come to the Paris Experience.

She so desired to travel to Paris, to walk the streets, see the sights, and hear the sounds. She also desired to participate in the beauty of Paris on a deeper level. To experience a brand new piece of who she is as a woman.

I could feel her come alive as we spoke. I could feel the activation of the desire. When I asked her why she wouldn’t do this, she told me something I hear a lot. (This is something that I think you’ll be able to relate to.)

It’s something that paralyzes us. It stops us from experiencing our truest desires.

It’s the fear of what other people are going to think of us.

I can’t even begin to explain to you how much this stops women cold from living their truth and their dreams.

“What am I going to tell my family? How am I going to explain it to my husband? What will people say when I tell them this is really calling me?”canstockphoto14788691

We allow the idea of what people are going to think of us from really going for it! I know, I’ve had those fears as I’ve been on my path.

So what do we do about it?

Instead of saying, “What are they going to think of me?” I want you to say to yourself, “What will I think of myself if I don’t let myself do this?”

Then, ask yourself, “What will I think of myself if I DO?”

By asking yourself this question, you’ll gain more clarity and receive permission to really move into the next level of your truth.

Leave a comment below. What would you think of yourself if you allowed yourself to step into your desire?

I look forward to assisting you in moving into the next level of your desire.

    I would think that I finally raised my hand to the universe and said, I am ready. I am ready to live the life of my dreams. I don't have all the answers, and I am still afraid, but I am ready to take a leap of faith and show MYSELF that the woman I have always wanted to be has been here, all along, inside me, waiting to be birthed into being. Thank you, Tara.

    Dear Tara,
    This video is brilliant! Although I never articulated these questions in the elegant way you have, when I look back at my life and see the mindset that has allowed me to make many major changes over the years, it is the same. Thank you from my heart and please keep giving your inspired permission (by example!) for women to transform! Love and blessings,
    Gay Bentre

    I would love to take that leap of faith and venture into the Paris experience. I believe it would deeply enrich my soul. The problem I'm having is the financial aspect of it. What people think is not an issue for me at this point in time. Thank you for sharing this video with all of us Tara.

    Bonjour Belle!
    Watching this video, I felt a new awakening. With each question, I felt a part of me literally stand up and yell, "YESSS! FINALLY! I can LIVE!" I just came back from a mini-writing retreat. I am stepping into a gift, a talent, a thing I love, and I am letting it overflow with love. I CAN'T go back to living in obscurity and darkness by hiding the real me because I worry about what other people think!!! This is MY life. I want to live it. And I am not saying in a selfish, non-compassionate way. I am saying I am ready to truly live my life with all the love, joy and power that I was meant to so that I can encourage others to do the same. By embracing who we really are and living the life we are called to live - what could be a better gift to the world??

    Thank you Tara!!

    Hi Tara,

    I used to give myself permission to travel to crazy places and when I felt a calling I just did it but a few years ago I stopped "feeling callings/longings" and have been grappling with numbness, non-clairy and confusion ever since. Do you have any advice for this situation? I feel I have met most of my deepest callings to travel and now I am floating in a weird "whats next?/help" space.
