It is my hope and intention to share blog posts with you that inspires, uplifts and adds value to your life…
Last year (2019) was probably my biggest year of growth, evolution and unfolding, although at the time it didn’t appear so. It was a year of events that were both traumatic and stressful no doubt. I have never experienced darkness like this before, during this time I hit the pause button and instead of treating myself like a machine I embraced stillness, moving inwards and allowing myself to move into a space of healing and acceptance for where I was. Might I add truthfully, I was not the person who could embrace silence. I would get frustrated, restless and uncomfortable in my own contemplation. I was always of the belief that doing, achieving, striving, planning, goal setting ext. was all there was to measuring success. I was always in my head for many years, focused on my thoughts and logic, whilst in this zone I was neglecting to connect with the rest of my body. Moving through this dark period was a gift in disguise. I have learnt that dark energy feels dense, heavy, negative and fearful. At the same time, I have learnt many pearls of wisdom, knowledge and insights that have helped me to move towards a more positive, purposeful and meaningful existence.
Life is made up of moments and that is truly all there is, when we bring our attention to this moment, we have no idea what could potentially happen in the next minute, day, year and so forth. We live in a world that is so fast-paced and noisy. Our bodies are conditioned be treated like human machines, pushed to its limits, filled with anxiety and fear 24/7.
In this constant state of being, we become disconnected from Mother Nature, our own intuition and our own sacred guidance, being able to give love and receive love, show compassion and empathy for all. Instead we have lost our sense of connection, unity, self-awareness and consciousness.
In my deeper awareness of myself, I could nurture myself, restore myself and trust that I have all the answers within to propel me forward in making choices that support my highest evolution, not only for myself but also for our beloved Mother Earth.
Take a moment during your day to cherish your body, loved ones, your relationships and where you are in your life. Life is made up of epic highs and soul shaking lows. Remember that you are always learning, growing and evolving and that is a good thing, your soul wants to expand as wide as it can, the question remains are you open to expanding with your soul’s evolution and trusting the journey you are on or are you resisting change fearful of the unknown?
