Is this done yet? When is this going to be over? Yep. I hear ya!
It has been quite a shift we’ve been going through and I can’t believe it has been 6 weeks since I stopped working at the physio clinic and the kids stopped going to school.
I totally get that it feels like a long haul.
And…there has been so much good that has also come of this time for the world and for me personally.
I say this while also being sensitive and respectful of those who have lost loved ones during this time. I know what it is like to lose someone that you love dearly so my heart is with those who are going through that experience now.
I thought I would share what I have realized as I have had time to turn inward and become aware of patterns that I was unconscious of.
The first realization I’ve had is where I have been giving my power away. What I mean by that is feeling victim to a situation that I couldn’t change because I didn’t know how and also not listening to my own intuition and knowing but looking for my answers outside of me instead.
Here is what I have learned from having that awareness. One of the reasons we don’t change something we are not happy about is because we don’t know how. We think that we have to know the how before we can choose to change it.
What I now see really clearly is that that is ass-backwards. The truth is that once we decide, once we choose to change something we don’t like, the how shows up. We must choose first.
In addition, I would also say that once we choose to make a change, it’s so important to ask for help from humans and also cosmic support. We don’t have to figure things out on our own. If we ask and then allow ourselves to receive, it feels so much better.
I was giving my power away to a situation because I couldn’t see how to do things differently. Once I decided that I was no longer willing to keep going in the same way, to choose differently for myself, the situation changed almost immediately. That’s how powerful we are!
I have also come to know just how important it is for me to listen to my intuition and guidance. I was doing it before but this is now at a much deeper level. It is no longer a luxury but a necessity in order for me to live the way I desire. I know that I must do things my way and not according to what others might think, even if it’s weird, even if it ruffles some feathers. It is non-negotiable.
And the last piece I will share is how necessary and mandatory self-care is. Nothing works well without it, not business, not health, not family, not anything. Why? Because everything is energy and we are creating our realities with our vibrational frequency aka how we feel. It is an inside out job.
Being very sensitive energetically, I have realized just how much I need to take care of my mind, body and spirit. I have spent the last week cleansing my beliefs, my emotions, my energy system and my physical body.
I begin every day with my spiritual/energy practice and then move onto moving my body and getting outside. And no, I don’t help my kids with any questions they have about school work until I have taken care of myself first. They now even know not to ask until I am ready. I can then be with them in a state of fullness and it goes waaaaaay better.
The invitation, should you choose to accept it is, have a look at where you may be giving your power away to a situation or person believing that you can’t change it. What if you decide what you want instead and choose to discover a way. Ask for assistance and see what magic unfolds.
Begin listening to your gut more. Be willing to take action on what your gut tells you and see what happens. Make it a fun experiment because we are here to enjoy our lives, aren’t we?
And last but not least, how’s your self care going? I get that it has been a stressful time for many and that comfort foods, alcohol and a whole lotta Netflix or Amazon Prime have been the flavour of the day.
I did it too, except for the alcohol part. Although there was that 1 bottle of Prosecco…
Here’s the thing. I reached for those things thinking they would make me feel good and they didn’t. Sugar and gluten make me feel anxious. And binge watching Netflix always makes me tired. So I decided to choose to feel good instead and make that my flavour of the day. Now I know that is what works for me and it doesn’t float everyone’s boat but find what your truth is. Listen to your gut about what feeds your life force energy and do that. Or not. We get to choose.
I hope you are keeping well and please receive a big virtual hug from me. I believe that we are going to come out of this time better than ever. We are changed for sure and I am excited about what gets to happen next!
