It is my understanding and knowing that change is inevitable and constant evolution. I can choose to embrace change or resist it. Ever hear the saying, what I resist is what persists? It is so true! Think about it for a moment… go back in your mind to a time you were in the midst of change, maybe it was exciting, or scary, or even something in between. You may find that when you were resistant, things didn’t go as smoothly as you’d liked. Yet the moment you surrendered and let go, things magically fell into place and everything just flowed.
While I know this and understand this, I realize that while in the midst of change, its important to remind myself to let go, to trust in the process and know, really know that no matter what, everything is going to be fine. Easy to say, yet it can be hard to do, of course, if I so choose.
See I also realize that I have CHOICE. We all make choices from the moment we are awake until the time we go to sleep. How so? Well we choose what we eat, what we wear, where we go, etc. In fact, we are always making choices. Are we making the choices that are best for us? Are we in alignment with our choices?
A few months ago, I was in a position to make a choice, in a moment, in this case, to stay or go. As I mentally checked in with myself, I asked myself, what is best for me? What feels right to me? Once I reached a decision on what I would do, I felt peaceful inside, which was my sign I was in alignment with the choice I was about to make. In this case, it felt good and was the right thing to do for myself. This feeling lasted for several hours, then anxiety (which is fear in disguise) made its presence known.
Fortunately, I am blessed to have very loving, encouraging and supportive people in my life. When the fear surfaced, I immediately reached out to a dear friend who happens to also be an amazing coach. She quickly helped me to see the reality of the situation and helped me to strategize on what I needed to do next. She listened and gave sage advice on allowing myself to just be. Just talking with her calmed me allowing me to see what was, not what I perceived it to be.
That night as I reflected and checked in with myself, I realized, that I had manifested this solution. For several years, I have desired to be a full-time entrepreneur again, yet through obligations and unconscious self sabotage, I was unable to make the leap, until, that moment three months ago. The Universe responded to my requests and removed all perceived obstacles from my path, clearing the way for me to serve my soul purpose of helping others heal.
We are all spiritual beings having a human experience and I’ve experienced the gamut of emotions that come with change. Yet I continue to choose to embrace each emotion as it comes, sometimes I resist, and when I catch myself, I ask myself what is it that you need to learn that once you learn it you can let go? Once I know what the learning is, I am able to let go and get back into the flow. Which allows me to focus on what I want, rather than what I don’t want.
Do you know what you want? Upon reading this question, where does your mind go? Does it go to what you want? Or does it go to what you don’t want? Which is it?
Next time, we we go a step further with this, bringing in the Law of Attraction.
