Sometimes we can be faced with so many overwhelming things that it feels necessary to run and hide or lash out. Sometimes we feel like that is our only choice.
Not necessarily and truth be told, either of those choices rarely lead you to where you want to be anyways.
The best thing to do as life quickly changes around you is to be present, be aware and stay focused on creating more joy and peace in your life. You do that by getting in touch with your higher Self or your intuition and taking direction from them.
I know, you are going to say but UMA! I can’t get quiet or create space for reflection when things are happening. I need to address what is happening!
Well yes and no. Yes if there is a fire on your stove, you need to put it out ASAP. Agreed. But if you are involved in a fight with a partner or feeling out of sorts with friends…you don’t necessarily need to have the answers right away.
You can take time to let it set and wait for more information to present. You can take the path of least resistance and allow things to unfold naturally. I had a friend who use to like saying, “I give people enough rope to hang themselves.”
I add to that by saying either they do and things get revealed or nothing is amiss and we can take the rope and play hop scotch!
As you go through this week, I ask you to do the same. It’s a testy time for many people so with fuses short, it takes literally anything to set someone off. Don’t get into it.
Hold space for everyone around you who is feeling these heavier energies and also for yourself. Take as many time outs as you need and if someone goes off on you, then withdraw. Don’t engage.
This past week I have taken the path of least resistance all week and it has been an enjoyable experience for me. I no longer have expectations of others and so when they show up in a nice way, it’s a pleasant surprise that I enjoy. If they let me down then I release them with loving kindness and keep it moving without judging their behavior.
We are nearly out of 2020 and at this point we don’t know if 2021 is our saving grace or the next sequel to 2020. While we can’t control the future, we can plan for the present moment by just doing the best we can with what we are given.
That my friends is staying present and aware. Enjoy it and be well this week.
