Ups and downs are a part of life and it really doesn’t matter how “together” you have it, you are still going to hit some bumps in the road along the way. The important thing isn’t avoiding these bumps, it’s how you navigate them. I feel like I’ve written these words before, but this is the energy I’m receiving this morning.
When you encounter rough patches in life, it’s easy to lose yourself. To get caught up or rather distracted by our humanly emotions. Sure it’s okay to cry – let it out. It doesn’t mean you’re weak if you get sad or frustrated or even angry. Releasing is important in spiritual and personal growth. But what I want to tell you today is to not lose yourself in the midst of your emotions.
It’s a deep but vague statement I know, so here it goes: When you find yourself being triggered, pause and observe.
These words came to me this morning after I went through a few days of emotions. I hate to keep saying this but Mercury Retrograde will have you revisit ‘stuff’ you might not have completely let go of (healed from) yet. It’s sure been doing that for me and I know a lot of you too. I was trying so hard to apply my spiritual tools, to get centered and balanced and find my joy amidst the roller coaster of emotions, but I couldn’t seem to do it. Then I figured out why: I was trying to control it. I was pushing to find an “answer” on how to bring myself out of this unscathed when I realized until I recognize the LESSON, I’ll never receive the BLESSING.
So as you know, I like to keep these affirmation posts brief and that’s why I just want to leave you with this: Gently allow yourself to feel what it is you’re feeling. Write it down if you must. Observe the thoughts, the fears, the emotions flowing through you. Then ask your higher self how can you see this differently? How can you understand this from a high point of love? I promise you’ll receive an answer, if you are silent and you listen. I promise the emotions will subside and I promise (yes I’m making a lot of promises this morning) that the lesson will reveal itself and that is when you entirely shift your mind out of fear, into love.
