Sometimes people are facing real things and I often find myself minimizing it because my motto is if we have air in our lungs, a beating heart and a roof over our heads, then we have so much to be grateful for. I was homeless for a couple of months when I moved to NYC and so I trained myself to look for the light in the darkest of situations.
But lately, in the past few weeks, I noticed a lot of people going through it as the collective purged all the old programming of a faded and quickly becoming obsolete old paradigm. So I wanted to share 3 steps to dive into when facing a mountain in your life, despite how little or how huge it may be impacting your life.
Pretending it’s not there doesn’t work. Love and lighting the situation into God’s perfect plan as we sweep it under the rug does nothing. We get to acknowledge it. You don’t have to go into full story mode if you don’t feel comfortable. But acknowledging it sometimes takes off the huge burden of the 500-pound gorilla that you’ve been carrying internally.
Acknowledging the mountain makes you REAL. It opens up conversations that create different perspectives, as well as opens up the door to receive support even if it’s just words of encouragement when you run out of for yourself.
You cannot heal what you are hiding.
A lot of times it’s a denial that gets us in trouble and resistance keeps fueling it. Acceptance doesn’t mean defeat or resignation. Acceptance is calling it forward.. that unhealed vulnerable aspect within ourselves to be loved, witnessed and accepted.
The acceptance frees up the resistance, it relinquishes the fight and moves into honor. This is the situation and I honor that I am the creator of this creation. Sometimes it’s easy and some days it’s a full-blown practice. But by accepting it as your creation based on past beliefs and fears and old programming, you now have the greatest opportunity to heal and take full charge of what you intend to create going forward.
We are never given more than we cannot hold and transform. Some mountains are done within a day, others can take a lifetime. But whatever burden we have created and attracted, we are also given the internal and external resources to reclaim victory and freedom.
Things happening externally means things are shifting big time in our inner word. Success and defeat are two sides of the same coin. Both a belief that says we move closer or further away from our internal power source. We get to remain diligent and faithful with every micro step, in the smallness, in the details.
Because the biggest regret will be is that we gave up right before our breakthrough. Sometimes the breakthrough is holding on and sometimes the breakthrough is dropping all allegiances that had us believe we couldn’t stand on our own. Our power source, our inner being, is mightier than all the oceans roaring together, than every mountain you may be facing. We are carved from the image of pure perfection, pure potentiality, and ‘if the oceans roar its greatness, so will I.’
Keep your head up love, this too is medicine and fertilizer, setting you up for grander and greener pastures.
