What would your life look like if all aspects of who you are (physical, emotional and mental) were in alignment? What if you could line up your internal energy with the energy of the universe, so that life became more about ‘flow and ease’ than about ‘effort and struggle’?
With so many wellness modalities, practices and products to choose from these days, it can be quite overwhelming to figure out what we need for our own healing and growth.
Some people will sample everything to find the ‘missing piece’ they’ve been searching for. And some, overwhelmed by all the information out there, or perhaps afraid, deep down, of trying something new, will ignore the stirrings of their soul and resist changing at all.
Every day, with every thought we think, and every emotion and belief we hold on to, we are creating the future reality of our living experience.
It’s not only what enlightened masters have been saying for centuries, it is energetic law, now proven by quantum physics. It’s happening for everyone, whether they know it or not.
Sometimes, it’s the people who hurt us the most that turn out to be our greatest teachers. Whether connected to these people by birth, love/marriage or ‘circumstance’, I like to think of them as ‘angels in disguise’.
For a long time I lived as though I was ‘half-alive’, never quite feeling at ease in my own skin and trying really hard to earn love, recognition, and my worthiness, from the outside world.
To love and be loved is what makes life worth living, but too often we struggle to find love that is real - the kind of love that feels safe, trustworthy, deep, attentive and supportive.
Self-love is much easier said than done. It happens in incremental shifts, which gradually build to one of quantum proportions. It takes time and a solid commitment to personal growth. While the path is often difficult and lonely, it tends to be sprinkled with ‘mini-awakenings’, which let you know you’re headed in the right direction. At least, that’s been my experience.
Regret is one of the most painful emotions there is, and one of the most fruitless. Wishing you could go back in time and change an action or decision that was made in the past is a waste of your ‘present moment’ energy. It blocks the flow of your precious life-force.
Despite divorce being very common and therefore much more socially acceptable these days than it used to be, it’s still hard to shake off the inner feelings of disappointment, loneliness and failure when a marriage breaks down. While having compassionate friends and relatives to lend a sympathetic ear is a wonderful blessing, well-meaning others can only help so much when we are going through such a radical transition.
For most of my life, I was a slave to my emotions. I thought they were something I had no control over. In fact, until quite recently, I believed I had only two choices: express my feelings outright and face the consequences, or squash them down and try to bury them forever. Nobody had taught me otherwise.
