Take the Lid Off the Jar
This is one of my favorite quotes by author, talk show host, and comedian Steve Harvey. Many of us have allowed others or allowed our circumstances to “lid” our Divinely-given gifts, talents, and opportunities.
There was a study about fleas and what happens when a flea is put in a jar with a lid. (Okay, stay with me here.) It was found that a flea only jumps high enough so its head doesn’t bump the lid.
But when the lid was removed… when the opportunity existed for the flea to jump out of the jar, the flea had trained itself to only jump just below the level of the lid… never leaving the jar. Although it could leave the jar… and there was opportunity to leave the confines of the jar... the flea had conditioned itself and stunted its potential and abilities to jump higher and high enough to move beyond the jar.
What’s more… baby flea offspring born in the jar are born with the same vertical jumping ability of those born outside the jar, over 200 times their size. However, because they only saw the other fleas in their jar only jump so high, so too they learned to perceive their heights as limited based on a lid that no longer existed.
Whether it’s an over-protective parent, a jealous coworker, or even a stranger, too many times we’ve allowed others to limit our leap with their words and opinions. How often have we derailed our progress because we are too busy worrying about whether we “measure up”…. how we compare to someone else’s abilities?
Now all that said, the good news is once we acknowledge that we are allowing someone “to lid” our potential, our talents, and our dreams… we are able to make a conscious decision to change it. No longer do we need to give someone permission to decide what we can and will achieve in our lifetime.
Maybe this is a person “in authority” like a boss. And maybe you can’t quit your job today. However, what you can start today is taking control of your internal narrative. From an intuitive standpoint, this could be a strong sign that you’ve completed your personal purpose in this position and learned what you were meant to learn to prepare you for your next career assignment… with another company… or maybe with your own company.
So I ask you…
If you found that you've been lidding yourself from lack of confidence or fear of uncertainty, numerology can help. Uncover (or reaffirm) your talents and your life purposes. Check out my numerology courses for self discovery while developing your intuitive gifts. Or reserve a private reading with me where we can take a look at your numerology chart to help you navigate life by your numbers with greater clarity and confidence.
In the meantime, share your answers to the above questions in the comments section. ?
I'll start with a recently benign experience. I was at a networking event where I came in contact with members of the group that let’s just say don’t understand what I do. Years ago, I would have let that lid me. I have to admit, for a moment, I was letting it lid me. But I checked myself in that moment. And as the Universe would have it, when the meeting head pulled a business card from the fish bowl to have 3 minutes to stand in front of his or her peers to talk about their business, I could see my distinguishable business card being pulled from the bowl. So I had another reason to rid the lid very quickly. And by the way, it was the second month in a row that my card was pulled… out of 30 to 50 other business cards in the bowl.
