How Resistance can steal your JOY! And how to get it back...
I’ve been in major resistance lately!!
My bratty teenager has taken over and she’s pissed!
As many of you know, I took on a full-time job recently and it’s been a huge adjustment.
My nervous system has been on high alert: tension in my jaw, pain in my neck, fear in my heart, and a feeling of being trapped, looking for ways to escape. Aka: old trauma being activated - not real, but feels real.
I've been coping by upping my breath & meditation "game", working out, eating well, getting a massage once a month, etc. But I still find myself waking up anxious in the middle of the night, tense during the day, with a strong desire in my heart for someone to hug me and tell me it is going to be okay, and a little sad that I don't have that in my life right now.
This week it became really clear that I was RESISTING what is, focusing on the NEGATIVE, and that this way of being was stealing my friggin' JOY!
I decided NO MORE! I let go of focusing on the way I think things "SHOULD BE" and I dove deep into ACCEPTANCE - acceptance of my life, myself and all that is!
And guess what?
I FELT BETTER! I looked around my life and saw all the beautiful things that were there, including my job. I allowed myself to RECEIVE! The gift of the Sacred Feminine.
I KNOW deep in my HEART that I am EXACTLY where I am meant to be!! And you are too! When we can accept this, a softening happens, and answers for how to be with what is magically appear.
It may be time for you to make a CHANGE
It may be time for you to STAY with what is
But the more important question is, can you be with what is (the "good" and the "bad") from a place of deep COMPASSION!
