I've had an emotionally overwhelming week. Many tears. Major heartache. Lessons being learned...or maybe not. We'll see.
Despite the sadness and confusion though, I still did the motions of life. Still rode and wrote and walked and gymed like a boss as my mind and heart struggled to find a meeting ground.
They've found it. It took all week but they've found it.
I'm sharing this as a reminder that no matter what you might be struggling with inwardly, the only way out is through.
You need to feel what you feel and say what you need to say and ride that rambunctious wave because your feelings are teaching you so much about where you're at and what your authentic self needs. Why ignore such a great and powerful teacher? It's built right into your system AND it's free!
I know how scary it can be to face yourself and the things and feelings that shatter your world, but what else are you really here to do? You're a magnificent project worth working on, worth making time for, worth making a priority. You need and deserve your own attention.
Of course no one likes feeling shitty but pushing those feelings aside won't do you any good in the long run. It results in Prozac years down the road.
And I know for a fact that the level of genuine joy I feel in my life (which is a helluva lot, a lot of the time) is in direct proportion to my willingness and ability to feel all the rest when it arises. I'm not afraid of the dark. I'm not afraid of sadness. I'm afraid of being stuck and unmoving. I always want to be free-flowing.
So I move. So I feel. So I cry. So I write. And I do these things so that I don't build up emotional or situational residue in my life.
I like to face what needs facing every step of the way so that I can remain current with myself each day. That's always been how I operate. I want to keep my channels clear and super smooth, so when things get jammed - I'm on the case.
None of us can stay in one spot emotionally for very long anyways unless we're fighting for our right to stay stuck in a lower frequency. Our natural state is light, peaceful, abundant and free. If that's not our reality then, what are we thinking, believing or doing to block our true nature? Not that we need to have it all figured out. But it's worth pondering.
As conscious, living creatures we are always evolving. Things are always shifting. Feelings change. People change. Time waits for no one. Nothing can really be counted on except this breath and this moment - and the connection we have to ourselves.
So let's make this moment with ourselves something special. And since there's nothing more special than being fully present in the moment and awake to our own true nature, that is what I wish for us. Always.
Cry if you need to. Express what you must. Just please don't abandon your beautiful soul.
