Why the Old Ways of Coping are not Working Anymore
2018 has been a rough year for many of us, particularly those of us who thought we had at least some things figured out. Or maybe that is just me....Anyway.......I am humbled and amazed at the many huge shifts that have occurred in my life. At first, I thought I was having a bad day, week, and month, but I soon realized, This is the new vibration. My initial reaction was sorrow, and even anger, as I have "spent all this time and energy" learning how to navigate my life, was that just a waste? However, as I have traveled along, and connected with some amazing, beautiful souls, I realized that we all have the opportunity now, to start anew. As we all know, endings always precede beginnings, and loss opens up new spaces for new energies to come in, if we allow it.
To Truly Allow, One Must Be Fully Present
To be present is one of those sayings that has been way over used, and many times, for the speaker's own gain. An ex boyfriend used to urge me to "stay present" because he wanted me to forget all his past behavior so that he could continue to energetically drain me. Lessons learned are valuable, and then you move on. The lesson remains, and we are able to set a clearer boundary with that information. The act of staying present is actually to be participating in the moment with your full attention and intention. The energies of the past are unchangeable, and the events of the future are unattainable, so does it not make more sense to simply be here now?
When you Ask, Be Ready to Receive
Setting intentions is like lighting a fire: Be ready to become ignited. In order to bring in new things, you must first release old patterns and habits that have held your old ways in place. You will be challenged to change those patterns, leave those old energies behind, so that you may step into the empowerment that you have been asking for. Change is good, and the more you can tell yourself this, the closer you are to creating positive forward momentum in your life.
I am focused on staying present and being open to change in my life. I realize that what I have seen as chaos is actually many of my old patterns and limiting beliefs falling away. The desires of my heart have shifted, and with that, I am seeing new opportunities and doors are opening that I never dreamed even existed. I grieve the losses and respect the people who are going a different way. Everyone is exactly where they need to be, including me.
What will you allow and release today? Be present, and allow change to introduce itself to you as a new friend. Become aware of your limiting beliefs and ask for support if you need it. Be mindful of your path, and walk with confidence. You are in the NOW.
