93 – Move out of the house of FEAR into a house of HOPE

Hey Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s Daily Dose is… move out of a house of fear, into a house of hope. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.

Last day of our week talking about visualizations, and I’m sure this will come up again in later episodes. But it’s all for this week. Yesterday, I talked about the power of writing down your goals and visualizing what you want to come true in the form of us finding our dream home within 16 days of saying, This is what we really want. And there’s a great metaphor on moving out of the house of fear, into a house of hope. And this comes from an excellent book by Dr. Srini Pillay called “Life Unlocked.” But basically, what you need to employ is, you need to get a realtor to help you move from that house of fear to a house of hope. You’re scared, you’re not going to reach your goals, you’re just focusing on the negative, you’re living in this house of fear, when what you really want to do is move into this house of hope. You want to achieve these goals. But right now all you see are the fears and everything holding you back instead of that faith in what can happen in the future, and who you can be and what you can do in the future. So how do you move houses? You hire a realtor, meaning you hire your conscious brain to get you on this faith train on this hope train.

We are biologically engineered to look at fear and to prioritize fear. Because you know, back in the day, if you weren’t fearful of getting eaten by a woolly mammoth, or whatever it was running around, you’re probably not going to survive. But that’s not really applicable nowadays. There’s no woolly mammoth running around. But we still have all this fear in our minds, and it’s unconscious. So the way that we move out of that fear house and that unconscious, is to consciously bring hope in and to train our brains to think, hopefully, and to think to the future, and what we want and all the positives in that so that we can move into that house of hope.

Homework assignment today, one way to move from that house of fear to house of hope is to look at things as “difficult” instead of “impossible.” So what is something that you thought was totally impossible for you that you actually achieved? Most things are possible, extremely difficult…yes. But when you label them impossible and say that you can’t do it…then you’re not gonna do it! And hey, if you’re not already following me on Instagram, give me a follow @MeghanQBarrett, and that’s Meghan with an H. And have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
