Open ALL Those Doors!

by on October 18, 2011

Dahling, do you recall the wonderful scene in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ where our heroine,
while endlessly telling herself that she probably shouldn’t be doing what she’s doing,
falls down the rabbit hole
and ends up
in a room full of Doors??

In the Disney version, there’s one door behind another, but Tim Burton’s version is a far more accurate rendition.
(the second link is an awful video, but the only one I could find to show you what I’m talking about!)

Well, sweetheart, this classic piece of fiction has become a remarkably accurate metaphor for this goddess’s recent journey …

Moving out of a seemingly perfect world,
all pretty,
and polished,
and … well, predictable …

Down a vortex of questions,
and uncertainty,
and a disconcerting feeling that things are somehow a-changing …

To land up in a ‘room’ filled with doors,

Waaaaayy too many!

The resulting paralysis of choice left me rather dumbfounded.

Until a wondrous revelation struck me!

A delicious amalgamation of all the mindset wisdom that I’ve been immersed in for the past few months.

An utterly Fahbulously Freeing revelation ….

Wanna know what it was ????


“The path to a new and exciting life,
is very UNLIKELY
to turn out the way you think it will,
or should.”
Chris Attwood

So, sweetheart, take this as your Permission Slip to open as many doors as you like!

Simply set that divinely accurate internal GPS of yours to your heart’s desire,

and know that everything will work out,

exactly as it should.

Aloha Goddess!

I love this post and the analogy with Alice in Wonderland! I am so inspired by you and your journey Jacqui. Thank you for sharing the Chris Atwood quote: “The path to a new and exciting life, is very UNLIKELY to turn out the way you think it will, or should.” All I can say is “Isn’t that the truth!”.

Following our heart and our passions takes courage because it truly is a “leap of faith” and the how always appears, as we allow.

You are truly “The Goddess” and I applaud you for sharing your journey with the world. Thank you for being you and listening to your heart.

Much love,
Kellie 🙂

Jacqui…thanks for this post. I love the message and spirit of your site.

I especially appreciate your advice at the end of the post to “know that everything will work out exactly as it should.”

I’m in a place right now where that advice is really a helpful reminder.

This resonates so deeply with me today.
I just couldn’t get out of my own way to get a blog post up. It really did feel as though
I was lamenting having to choose between too many doors. And you are absolutely
right…any time I just go through the door with that deep spirit knowing I always get
Goddess guidance when I need to move a different way. Thanks for the reminder.

What an inspirational post. The power to manifest one’s destiny is a powerful, yet wonderful force in our universe. It is the secret to “The Secret”. When I find myself stuck, I know that I am not focused on the right things. When I catch myself, I take a moment to meditate and listen to my inner thoughts and desires.

Thank you for reminding us of the powers we hold.

Yes so true – the changing times are not always the kind of thing we fall in love with immediatly. As we need to move from a comfort place. But I like the adventure of this feeling once I got over complaining 🙂 But I am always extremly stressed by choosing a doors. And got myself sometimes trapped by exactly this feelings you describe, as long as I remember to look at my feet and start walking – walking my own little woodpath which I can follow just like I love in this moment.
May we have a great adventurous journey! Great Post. Thank you.

Hi Jacqueline, this let me think that choosing a path with the end-result loosely held in mind and releasing the ‘how’ allows us to uncover and discover our truth along the way without the hindrance of blinkers that limit our possibilities for expansion. We may step onto other paths and encounter new adventures that we simply would never have thought of before!

Fun post! I have found that the universe uses “carrots” to bring me along. The carrot is always something I think I want. But the end result is always a journey deeper and vaster that I could have imagined.

I learn this lesson more each moment Jacqui. When I think I know, I don’t. So I keep opening all the doors I possibly can and enjoy the moment.

Thanks 🙂

I recall the scene in alice in wonderland and I love it so much. I replay it all the time. Thanks for this post.

My fave line in Alice was…
Alice: It’s impossible!
Someone (i forgot who said this) :Only if you think it is.

I really admire how you correlated Alice in Wonderland with your post. Great!


Elin@Dejting October 25, 2011 at 10:04 am

Great post and so true. The other day I talked with my mom about her sister who moved in with a guy who then moved out the next day. And I was like, “you know it doesn’t matter, sh** happens and if you don’t take any risks your life is going to be incredibly boring”. If we walk around being afraid to make a fool out of ourselves and we don’t do something a little stupid or unpredictable or unexpected every now and then, we know what’s going to happen. But it may not be as fun.

Jacqui, LOVE this, thank you so much! Most of all, I love your gorgeous spirit – it just jumps off the screen. Taking my permission slip and running with it, leaving the how-focus behind!

Gregory@Lethal Commission November 9, 2011 at 4:22 pm

I love the way you compare the opportunities to the scene in Alice in wonderland. It is very risky and exciting at the same time. But really if you don’t try it you will never know what is inside.
