I was talking to some old friends on Wednesday – a Zoom meet up – and sure its not the same as meeting people face to face – no giving and receiving hugs – no easy sliding into stories, missing the way conversation flows between you all.
There’s a stop/start to conversation on Zoom, isn’t there? You go, no you go and then silence as you all wait for the other people to speak.
And there’s an occasionally jarring note when something happens in their immediate vicinity that pulls them out of the Zoom bubble, a doorbell rings, or someone walks into the room and they switch their attention from the screen where you are trapped and return to ‘real life.’ And you’re left hanging there, like a tv show on pause.
Yes, all these new lifestyle adjustments are hard. But for me, it’s absolutely necessary because otherwise the isolation would be overwhelming.
Right now, I’m dipping in and out of John O’Donohue’s gorgeous book, ‘Anam Cara, Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World,’ and in the piece I read last night John was talking about the Celtic tradition of ‘sacredness’ in how we approach another person.
Nowhere is this sacredness more intent that in friendship and ‘a friend is different from an acquaintance. Friendship is a deeper and more sacred connection…a friend is a loved one who awakens your life in order to free the wild possibilities within you.’
That sentence transfixed me.
How often do our peer groups and friendships actually do the opposite and constrain us?
Or rather is it that we limit ourselves and stay small, to fit in and belong, even when it makes us feel wrong?
Imagine the joy of having someone in your life who encourages you to express yourself fully. Someone who actually does ‘free the wild possibilities within you.’
Maybe you don’t have that person in your circle right now. But you can start picturing them coming into your life, you can imagine the seeds they might plant that you will harvest, the moorings and ties they cut to free you and allow you to fly.
I’m not advocating irresponsible or outlandish risky behaviour.
I’m talking about the dreams, the ambitions, the goals to change the world, to change lives for the better, to uplift and turn everything on its head. Your life enhancing visions – that’s what I think of when I contemplate ‘wild possibilities.’
If there’s no-one to hold that space for you in that way in your life at this moment, then use me as a surrogate. Tell me about those wildly exciting, almost impossible but always possible because you can see it within you and so are able to bring it to life possibilities within.
But don’t do it for me. Do it for yourself. And you can also befriend yourself. Hold yourself sacred.
Give yourself permission to explore the wild possibilities within.
Doesn’t life sound an irresistible proposition when viewed through that lens?
Go find the irresistible within and revel in the wonder of your personal magic.
Life is sacred.
You are sacred.
Your dreams are sacred.
Treat yourself accordingly.

Think what would life be like if your thought processes were upgraded so you became unstoppable. What would life be like if you were able to step up and show up as that best ever version of you that you know you’re capable of?
Picture yourself thriving in life, developing an instinct for making the right choices, knowing in your gut you’re always choosing the correct thing for you.
Imagine any addictions, old anxiety and fear melting away, no longer influencing your thinking, your behaviour, your decisions. You are free to make better choices.
Think how it would feel achieving your goals with far less resistance, whether it’s earning an extraordinary income, being a rockstar in your business or career, or excelling in your personal relationships. You can do it, you have no fears about any of it anymore.
See yourself fully present and grounded, living with total fulfillment and satisfaction with how life is unfolding for you, with zero regrets, as you fearlessly carve your own path forward.
