Herd Mentality

Think of a herd grazing together. They stay really tight to keep themselves safe. The ones that wander to the outer perimeter are more apt to get picked off by a predator. So the safest thing to do is to stay in the thick of it and not stand out. Think of an innocent grazer just wandering to the outside edge and being taken down and devoured. This primal fear is what prevents us from speaking our truth.

It is a primal instinct instilled in us as mammals…to stay immersed in the herd. Even wandering outside is dangerous. It is ingrained so deep that we fear standing out from the crowd in thoughts, words, or deeds because it conjures up the memory of being stalked and killed for doing so. Being an individual is a brave thing to do if you are a gazelle. But you are a conscious being. Isn’t it time to live conscious?

Releasing our inhibitions can be exhilarating. Imagine all the subtle fears and unconscious reactions that can dissipate just by addressing this core issue. All the energy that is vested in keeping us thick in the herd is now used to access our dreams. It is like cutting a million pieces of twine that we didn’t realize were constricting our movement. Isn’t it time to run free like a gazelle?
