Yesterday I was confronted with life.
This happens to us.
All the time.
Something comes out and bites you in the ass.
Your relationships. Your business. Your money. Your health.
Something that you never thought would happen to you.
But it did.
Now, how are you coping with that?
Do you have a set of self-coaching tools you can pull out and work through whatever life throws at you?
Besides breathing, deep conscious breathing (which literally takes the sting off most issues and relaxes your parasympathetic nervous system) the other thing I like to do is what Taylor Swift does, “Shake It Off!”
Literally shake my whole body and release the negative until I feel a shift.
I look like Elaine from Seinfeld dancing! YIKES!
Side note: So many of our dis-ease in the body is due to energy stuck because it had no place to go and moving & breathing it through your body helps dissipate those blocks – says all the research I’ve ever done on this, and I personally find this to be true for me.
So, yesterday I did this.
And then, I pulled out my next tool.
The one where you talk to your brain and get it to tell you why you are:
- freaking out?
- what’s the worst case scenario?
- why are you fearing this?
- does this really matter?
And the answer always comes up the same.
I have no control over what happens externally to me.
God is in control. The universe will have it’s way with me and then I always come back to that deep belief that everything is happening for my highest purpose.
And let me tell you, as you already know – when you are in the thick of it, it’s very hard to see that everything happens for your highest purpose.
IT’S THE HARDEST WORK YOU WILL DO.
Not holding on so tight.
Letting go and letting God take over.
And every time I do that, I get a miracle.
I can not begin to tell you how many times I’ve thought I was ruined.
Like life over, ruined.
In all areas of my life.
You’ve been there too.
It’s really a dark and horrible place to be.
You were not called to live in pain, in darkness, in those horrible places – those are not from God, the universe.
If you are there right now, my dear friend, then you have to know that this is not why you were put here on the earth.
You were called to take that pain, that anger and transform it into something incredible and abundant – seriously – THAT is the miracle of life.
THAT IS WHAT A MIRACLE IS.
A shift in perception.
I think it’s not that this “bad” stuff won’t happen to you, it will – over and over and over again.
BAD STUFF WILL HAPPEN TO YOU DAILY.
I think the biggest gift and goal is self-awareness, identifying the pain/fear and moving through faster to get back to your “peace”.
When your “peace” is disturbed by the things out of your control you feel unsettled and all the feelings pour in to begin the massive downward spiral.
Feeling are great to help us identify what’s happening and what the thoughts are that are creating those feelings, but the real gift is how fast you can shift.
I’m going to be blunt with you.
What used to take me weeks, months, years to get over – now takes me minutes. (And that took me years to figure out – unfortunately for me, I wish I learned this at age 8!)
Part of the key in creating something that will blow your mind, something amazing in your life, is being able to shift speedily through the shit.
The longer you dwell on the “bad things” that are happening to you, the longer it will take for God to work through you, because when you are stuck, the Universe can’t work it’s magic.
You have to unstuck yourself.
The faster you can do this, the faster you can attract and manifest the life you want to live.
The faster you can see miracles appear in your life.
If you want to hold on to your pain, your grudge, your anger, your frustration – the longer it will take for miracles to work in your life.
It’s just the way it is.
I’m also not saying don’t feel you pain. FEEL IT! Feel it GOOD! Feel all the feels and be okay with the pain.
Pain and all the bad emotions do serve you, but not when they drag on.
You are allowed your moments of screaming.
But you also know staying there is what ultimately hurts you and no one else.
Next time life throws you some shit-pie, make sure you have a plan to work through it. Make the plan while you are in good-spirits.
Being able to move swiftly through your anger, your pain, your frustration allows you to create peace for yourself and spread that over to others.
You have the power to create all the desires of your heart.
Which is the power to….
Live Your Legacy.
