Ugly snake sheds his skin to become shiny, bright, and glowing with sleek new scales. It is uncomfortable at first when one must shed their skin. It can take courage, growth, and a complete understanding that once one sheds a layer that no longer serves them, their life will be bigger, fuller, and more magical.
Snakes shed their skin due to biological causes, they must, in order to grow big and strong. It is part of the natural process. They cannot hold themselves back or keep themselves small.
Humans, on the other hand, can and do keep themselves small. Growth is uncomfortable for many. Growth pushes us to look and consider things that we don’t necessarily want to look at or grow through.
When one becomes uncomfortable, they either move through it in stride and get to the other side, or they recoil when they hit the boundaries of growth. Do not recoil, do not keep yourself small by staying in the container you are now in.
Keep growing. Shed your scaly skin, your layers for growth. Each layer, or skin shed, is going to be uncomfortable. It can stop you in your tracks, it can cause fear to bubble up, it can cause panic attacks, it can and will stop you from growing if you cannot find a way to push through to the other side.
Kind of like a chick or a tiny bird hatching from an egg, it is hard as a young little one, to crack open a tough outer layer and much rest must come afterwards, but a glorious, full life is waiting just on the other side of the barrier, of the boundary, of the layers that need to go, need to be sluffed off.
If you want to consider yourself a cute little chick, versus a scaled serpent, go right ahead, the metaphor is the same. Boundaries keep you small, go ahead, and break through each layer, with strength, with power and with the knowledge that you can do it and grow beautifully on the other side.
