Sometimes things can literally feel like everything is upside down. For me this always translates to change happening all around my life. Everything always flows so much more easily if I open my heart up to these changes. Change always leads to new insights, new opportunities, personal growth, divinely inspired risk taking, and abundant blessings.
One thing that can always be guaranteed with life is constant change.
The earth is continually moving, and if we are not moving with it, our life becomes stagnant. One way that I deal with the blazing chaos of life is to slow down. When things feel like they are moving too quickly, or too harshly, this is the perfect time to take some quiet time for yourself and go within.
Open your heart up and take a moment to discover why change feels so vulnerable, uncomfortable, or distressing. This is the perfect opportunity for meditation and/or journaling to become more in touch with the beliefs that may no longer be serving you. Just fifteen minutes of deep breathing can make a HUGE difference. Even better would be to take a sea salt bath with plain sea salt from the grocery store with a few drops of your favorite essential oils. Sea salt helps to dissolve emotional and physical stress.
One of the best ways to deal with change is to simplify your life.
It is always easier to move forward in life if you have less to bring with you. Release the unnecessary items in your home. Do forgiveness work on everyone, including yourself, who has hurt or deeply annoyed you in the past by writing it down on paper, saying a prayer to let it go, and burning the paper safely over the sink or in any other safe way. Cancel subscriptions that are cluttering up your inbox. Begin saying no to the demands that others are making on your time and energy, and spend your own time more efficient, organized, and freely. Eat the healthiest food that you can get your hands on.
All of this can feel overwhelming at times, yet this does not all have to be approached all at once. Begin with nurturing yourself, then begin the decluttering process. The more that you reclaim your life, and release everything that is not current to your dreams and aspirations, the more free spirited and light you will feel. Living light is a blessing. You don’t have to carry the emotional and physical weight unless you choose to.
It may take some work, but unpack your bags, donate, recycle, and release the unloved, and walk light in the world.
Be light, live light!
