One day, the message the dolphins gave to me while we were swimming gloriously with them was this …  “Live outside the box.” Often when we are gliding gently with these beings of higher consciousness, they will give us clear, unmistakable messages that just infuse our minds with simple words … words that teach. At first I really didn’t know exactly what they meant as one could take that directive in many different ways.

After much reflection, I believe they are speaking to the part of me that has been holding back my true nature in some ways. Yes, I have moved through much clearing of inner doubts and fears to come to the place where I feel comfortable “being seen” as in our work in the world. But I also realized yesterday that there are so many creative thoughts that stream through my mind that would be wonderful to express, but I have noticed that I constantly judge them or ignore them, thinking that they are too much, too hard to manifest, too different or any number of excuses, and let them go.

The dolphins, in effect, were giving me “permission” to just go for it … let the creativity come in and move forward with some of these ideas no matter how I think people will respond! Living outside of the box, to me, means doing something unique, creative, different from anything else that is in total expansion, not limited by walls of judgement. Living outside of the box takes courage and I see that courage, in this context, is only limited by my perception of what people may think.

After all, if, as I believe, we are each individual expressions of the Divine having unique experience through our ego/personality, then creative ideas have to be coming from that Source that is at the Source of All That Is. It is a flow of energy uniquely channeled by each person from the Divine Inner Self tempered by individual perception to be expressed out into the world. If a box limits the contents, then our limiting thoughts are just like that box. If we are in contraction, we are in the box. Expansion has no limits and that is how we truly live in the Light of All Possibility.

Hurrah! Let’s all live “outside of the box” and allow ourselves to be real, authentic and not afraid to express our passions and joys because if we each accept who we really are, the world will be a much better pl
