Some early morning transmissions from the universe:
Go slow. Be even more patient than you think you are capable of.
There is plenty of time.
The grass always looks so green over there until you hear the real deal, with all of its missteps and imperfections. We feel comforted by the real deal because it resembles our own messy lives. It is okay to be comforted by this. It is okay to let go of the facade that our pastures our green and manicured. We are more capable of connection when we let our messy truth be revealed.
Left to our own devices, we will make up the worst case scenario in our heads.
When you are feeling low in spirit, fragile and insecure, sometimes the best thing is to harness the warrior energy in you. Do some yoga, get into warrior pose, do a dance, run around the neighborhood. In the last few days I see how much strengthening my body can strengthen my spirit and help me to access the sleepy, but very powerful energies that exist. After you have honored the grief, the sadness, the disappointment, try using your body to literally lift your spirits.
Get a life.
This is an expression I don’t like so much… but it came to mind as I am writing. When we are obsessing, wondering who likes us, where we belong, if we’re going to be okay, if they’re going to call us back, if we’re ever going to be a success (sound familiar?) we are in full-on icky 7th grade gremlin mode. When we get a life, that is, when we connect to what we are really about, when we connect with what we are really wanting, when we honor who we really are in the world, those voices feel small and petty.
Get a life, better said, is more like “What are you passionate about? What did you come here to do? What is the big picture? What are your gifts? What are you really wanting?” and begin to inspire yourself. Take one step today to start doing it.
“I recovered my immense will to live when I realized that the meaning of my life was the one I had chosen for it.”
