I also notice an old thought pattern / a wounding about how my passion scares and intimidates people. Makes them fearful, brings up insecurities or jealousies.
I’ve always been a person with A LOT of passion. An intense personality.
This comes from me genuinely loving life and having visions — seeing how great things can be. I don’t know why, but most people are not like this. I don’t know if it’s cause their inner child has been beaten out of them, their zest for life, control of their personality, or simply they are just not like me.
I think it’s the latter.
But one never knows, it could also be a mix of all those things. I do feel a lot of people are quite restrained.
But anyway, because many people I come into contact with, laugh or back away, or get scared when I show my passion, I have learned to shut it down (ahh, see notes above as to why other people don’t carry the excitement / passion) — I have pushed it down and try to hide it.
I keep it to my home only. Pretty much. And when it leaks out around others, I always see how they’re surprised, give a nervous giggle. and whatever.
It’s not like I’m bi-polar with that crazy high, but I do get pretty high when I’m excited about something, like how I was yesterday researching this author and excited all day – riding that wave.
But my fears are coming up, fear of scaring him away from my excitement, scaring my group members with my visions / which again is excitement,, etc.
I’d like to release this. This is old programming / old thought patterns — and passion is exactly what you want and need to make your dreams come true. Stunting it, shutting it down, holding it back has been a bit block I’ve been doing to myself, a big injustice – a big no-no, so I don’t want to do it anymore.
Praying about all of this. Meditating on it all too.
