“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I’m changing myself.”
~ Rumi, Persian poet, Islamic scholar, theologian and Sufi mystic
So much change is going on in the world and everyday life! Things are not what we’re used to anymore. We’ve been experiencing a pandemic, fires in some areas, protests, staying at home more, wearing masks, worrying about family and friends, buying groceries online, traveling less, communicating via Zoom, and so much more. Whew, I hear so many of you saying, “I can’t wait until things return to normal!” I wonder what that really looks like, don’t you?
During quiet moments we’ve had time for inner reflection and to imagine what the new normal might be. It’s different for each one of us. Once the seed of change begins to sprout and grow then we ask, “What in me and my life am I willing to change for my new normal to be created?” If this exploration isn’t challenging enough there have been intense universal energies encouraging us to let go of old stuff and open to new possibilities. Elkhart Tolle, Spiritual teacher and author has said, “When you become comfortable with uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life.” Amazing, isn’t it?
Leaning into uncertainty isn’t always easy. For those of you who like to be in charge or control the outcome of your decisions this can be especially difficult. I always thought I loved change and then several years ago I realized that I only loved it when I thought I could control it! That was a big ah ha moment for me! How about you? I’m better with change now but I still have my moments. When I find myself in a mental loop of wanting to know what’s going to happen I acknowledge it and then I stop, take a few deep breaths, and surrender to the highest and best outcome for me and my family. I have learned to trust that I’ll know what’s mine to know and do when it’s time. I continue to hold the intention/vision of what I want to change and “feel” how it’s different from what’s current and familiar. Does this make sense?
Being patient is key. This has been an opportunity for growth for me for many years. LOL Being courageous and willing to step into the unknown and trust that you are supported is also key. Another thing to consider is how you feel about yourself. For example you can ask during your quiet moments, “Do I feel worthy enough? Do I matter enough? What will my friends and family think? Will I be supported enough?” If you feel any resistance then stop and take a few cleansing breaths with your eyes closed. Breathe in all that’s good and love and breathe out all resistance. Do this a few times and then see how you feel when you ask the question again. Don’t worry if you don’t know what the resistance was. What’s important is that you let it move through you. The resistance most likely is based in fear so send it lots of love to help transform and transmute the energies back to love.
You are a powerful creator and as A.A. Milne, English author and playwright reminds us, “Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and more loved than you’ll ever know.” What are you creating in your life through your imagination, words, thoughts, and actions?
