The central part of a film has been called death and rebirth. It is when the main character realises that their previous belief structures have no place in their future life. An example would be Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, at the mid point she decides that she will go to battle the wicked witch. Before that point she made no real decisions and just went where the wind blew her; both literally and metaphorically. In affect at that moment she went from child to adult. Without out this change in belief she could not have returned home.
You may think that the Wizard of Oz is just a film and has no relevance to our lives, but actually it reflects real life well. Firstly, to get to where you really want and need to go to, there has to be a change in belief structure. Secondly, you need a leap of faith and thirdly, change is instantaneous; a decision. The lead up to change may take months, years or decades, but the change itself takes less than a second.
Traveling from one belief structure to another can be quite a journey. In many cases the route has been laid down by parents and society over decades. However, it comes a point when it's time to choose what you really want to believe. To live your whole life with exactly the same beliefs as when you came into the world would suggest that you have been stationary.
The new you, does not have to throw everything away from your past. You can cherry pick the bits you like and get rid of the parts that no longer serve you. It's up to you, the new you. The reborn you. Yes, birthing pains can be painful but at the end of the day the results can be wonderful.
You may be thinking, "Well that's all good and well, but how do I really make that leap to the new me?"
Much will be revealed in my next blog, 'choosing you.'
