How do you stay grounded when everything is swirling around you?
Lately it feels as though my life has been upended.
Everything I know has shifted. It’s a time of huge transformation in all facets of my life.
Of letting go of the old and having faith that what is coming will be amazing. It so will. I can feel it.
Where is the safest spot in a tornado? At its very center, that is where the calm lies.
It takes courage, strength and faith to believe that I will come through this completely transformed. I KNOW I will.
It’s MY time. To live the life I have always wanted. To be of service to as many as I can through my gifts in sports psychology.
No more hiding. No more playing small. No more dimming my light. NO MORE.
I have a vision. I have peeps who love me, keep me grounded and cheer me on. I have faith in a force greater than me that will manifest all my heart’s desires. I believe.
I have manifested plenty in my life. The power of intention is huge. Where your breath goes, your focus goes. What you focus on expands. Make it intentional, amazing and big.
I am so mindful of my word lately. Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements have come back into my life at the right time.
The first agreement is to be impeccable with your Word. “Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.”
I have been challenged by that agreement repeatedly lately about the words I say to myself. The itty bitty shitty committee is fierce lately. Shut up ego. Enough.
When this happens, I return to breath and breathe. Deep belly breaths and as many as it takes to come back to center and to me.
My return to a stronger yoga practice helps, meditation helps, walks help. Returning to breath in the midst of a tornado helps. Repeating to myself I am safe, I am love and I am peace.
It’s a challenge to stay grounded amidst whirling dervishes and transformation. Self-care is key.
Step by step, moment to moment and breath to breath.
Breathe. All will be well.
