Many of you have been on a bit of a ride recently. Yes! This is NOT evidence of any sort of deficiency on your part!
It is quite common to think that if one is having a difficult time, it is because they are not spiritual enough, or perhaps not evolved enough.
I would like to say, as strongly and as succinctly as I can, THIS IS NOT TRUE.
These recent difficulties are both a reflection of what is happening with the external universal energies that exist, as well as reflection of your own internal universe.
If life feels quite stirred up, or feels as if there is too much going on, this is NOT a commentary on you. It is certainly an opportunity to reflect; it is certainly an opportunity to consider what belief systems you hold that may be creating these scenarios; it is certainly a useful exercise to make perhaps some new decisions about what you will hold as priorities in your life.
Some, or all of these options are possible.
It is also a time to use your tools to create change for yourself, whatever those tools may be.
It is NOT a time to self-criticize about what is occurring. It is not a time to defend your reactions, even if they feel justified. These are both behaviors that create stagnation, when really, you are looking for flow. You are looking to move through these overwhelming and difficult experiences with as much ease as possible.
Stagnation DOES NOT equal ease. It simply does not.
There is much you can do; it is most important that you learn to hold yourself, and your journey, in the highest regard. Your experience on this planet is a sacred one, and above judgment.
It is for you to decide how you will spend your time that you are here. I’d very much like to suggest that some of that time is spent on self-acknowledgement and self-care.
