I see so much struggle in the World. Country waging war, businesses going broke and lives being shattered by fear, anxiety and mistrust.
On the flip side, I see great potential in those around me. I can see their authentic desires and the action they take to move one step closer and it’s done with such grace. So effortlessly that you wonder whether is just meant to be.
I used to stand in awe of these ‘greats’ thinking that it would be lovely if that were true for me, but not really believing that it could be.
That was until something shifted for me that transformed my mindset and has in-turn, transformed my practice.
I used to believe that if I was good enough, smart enough and worked hard enough, I might touch the edges of success. That I might enjoy freedom and have a practice that filled me with joy and light. But, as a coach commented to me, that sounds like a lot of hard work to feel ok about yourself. I really hadn’t noticed how I was showing up. But, as my eyes opened to the reality of her question, something like a heavy burden fell away and I knew instantly that I was free.
Free to love myself unconditionally. Free to work hard when I choose and free to kick back when I want to. Free to build a thriving practice and free to love what I’ve created so far.
My second insight was a shift from an intellectual understanding of connection to life, to a deep knowing that I’m connected to God, the source of wisdom and insight, which opened up a more expansive view of what was possible. It was like emerging from a wood onto a high point overlooking a sea of possibility.
Since these encounters I feel relaxed, life feels effortless and stress is replaced with a knowing that at the end of the day I’ll be ok, whatever the outcome. That’s not to say that I don’t feel stress from time to time. Just at the moment we are packing up our home to move and at times I feel pressure, but knowing I am connected to life let’s me relax and love who I am, leaving me feeling secure and peaceful again.
