Shifting gears after our minds are “set” in a certain direction, can be a difficult concept to accept.
We fight, resist, ignore signs and ultimately spin our wheels feeling disconnected and frustrated that our lives haven’t turned out the way we planned.
I know this feeling well, because… I used to live this way.
My control tendencies were once high. In younger years, my world was completely out of control; I grasped, held onto and if I had an idea of what was going to happen - I wouldn’t deviate. The fear of the unknown was too much for my fragile nervous system to take.
Fast forward several years of therapy, meditation, earth medications and understanding the mind and its tendencies… I have LEARNED to allow life to unfold as it should.
This means I still work towards goals and have plans, but ultimately stay OPEN to twists and turns along the way.
We are, unfortunately, built with personal parameters of what we THINK we can and cannot do. This means that even the most seemingly powerful humans can still be set within self imposed limitations.
Letting go, opening up to possibilities and seeing life for opportunities rather than doors that’ve closed, gives us an ability to soar with the eagles.
Trusting your abilities, inner wisdom, differences and non conforming intuitive gifts, may ultimately be what makes your life go from “ok,” to really good, to pretty fucking awesome.
It takes time. My humble suggestion is to walk slowly and mindfully… but just keep going… xo
