There are two ways we can be: cause- OR -effect.
When things happen that feel out of our hands, it can be easy to feel like we’re the effect of life.
“It’s happening to us, we have no control, there’s nothing that can be done…”
The spiral can kick in quickly, fueled by adrenaline and stress hormones. It becomes its own ball of negative momentum. It’s what you talk about, think about endlessly and lament…
But: it’s totally unproductive and really unhelpful to let this energetic vortex be our destiny because when we are the effect of things, we become totally ineffective.
I just got loads of news (all will be positive thought all shocking at the time) in the past days that put me in a state of…
Feeling forced. Feeling overwhelmed. Feeling ambient stress looming. Feeling squashed.
Have you been there?
Are you there now?
While I still feel it for a moment and I’m not immune to it, these days I default to the mode of “let’s solve this right now.”
If you’ve been feeling pushed around, forced, backed into a corner, shocked, saddled with news you aren’t thrilled about or anything else that is apt to make you feel like life is just happening to you… today’s feng shui is all about getting your power back.
Now’s the time for more grounding, more empowerment, more of everything that can support your wellbeing.
A few suggestions to get the ground under your feet and start making decisions from a place of power:
Breathing deeply and in long sessions to feel yourself calm and full. Exhale for 2 X longer than you inhale. So, if you take a deep breath in for two of three counts, exhale for four or six counts. I first learned this from Charlie Knoles and I can’t say enough about it’s power.
Researching options. Knowledge is power. The magic of the internet, libraries and support groups is that there is now proof that many more things are possible than you may be aware of at the moment. When one person breaks a record or does what was previously deemed impossible, it opens up new fields of possibility. Let’s just say Jeff Bezos becomes a trillionaire. Suddenly, we’ll see more of them. Same for people breaking sports records, beating illnesses and so much more… These are giant examples but options are many for all situations.
Create a blueprint. Deciding your optimal outcome where everyone is happy is a vital step in creating success out of these wild times. Create the model of your ideal outcome. Draw it, speak it, envision it… then create steps to get there, small and big, that take the chaos out of your mind and into a creative space.
Believe it is for a higher purpose. In Buddhism, suffering is a way to expel negative karma and create seismic leaps forward. While we don’t seek problems, it is a great philosophy for when they pop up. Decide that every obstacle is a roadmap to your ascended, more clear-minded, more focused life.
This decision alone will all take you there…!
No one can push you around. No one can squash you without consent any more. Nothing is going to hold you back from infinite possibility.
Everything is possible when you decide to be the cause of solutions and the creator of new ways.
You can do this. You can overcome these obstacles and leap into a way better situation than ever. I’m 100% certain you can, and sending you the best vibes to make it happen with swiftness and ease.
