In the face of adversity or challenging times it is a test of your courage and strength to see if you can maintain a positive outlook, if you can still feel that little glimmer of hope and possibility on the horizon. For this trust and faith in life, in yourself, will bring you the magic of miracles and creative solutions or outcomes and most importantly, an inner peace.
I am learning, slowly, that at each test or turn if I can maintain my faith that everything really does happen for a reason and that I am never given a challenge that I am not up to handling, gives me the strength and courage to continue on. I allow that flutter within to expand and my awareness to grow…tuning into all that is and thanking the Universe for all that I have and all that is coming.
Drawing on this trust and faith gives me a greater comfort than I ever imagined, feeling fully into this space supports me in a way that I never understood until now. You really have all that you need within you and the Universe, Life, whatever you want to refer to it as…really does have your back!
In truth there is no one you need rely on other than yourself and not in a egoic way or standing independently in arrogance, but in the truth of who you are and that as a being of love and light that is part of a greater oneness of love and light.
How incredibly amazing and beautiful is that?!
As I sit contemplating the last few weeks, ready to change my perspective and learn from my previous struggles, I sit with a great love in my heart knowing that I have all that I need mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually to tackle anything that comes my way. I stay centred in peace and love, choosing this every single day and choosing to find the joy and happiness in every moment.
I also choose to forgive. I forgive myself and I forgive those that hurt or angered me through my life. I have never been more ready or sure of where I am, who I am and where I am going. I draw faith from the events in my life that have led me to this point and finally see that, while it may have taken a while, I have arrived at the very point I have always known that I would. I have created a life and opportunities that I once dreamed of and there is still so much more to come. I am excited by all that is yet to come and I am excited by who I will continue to become. The one thing I am totally sure of is that my inner self, my inner guide will be with me every step of the way and I draw on her support and guidance to continue to lead me on my path.
Some days it might feel like you a climbing a never ending mountain or you might feel that you are struggling and hustling hard all the time. Just remember that it doesn’t have to be this way, you have the choice and the control of what you do with your time and energy. You can stop, rest and replenish whenever you need or find is necessary. Remember to look back at how far you have come, as while you may not be exactly where or how you want to be but you are always not where you once were. Recognise and reward yourself for the progress you have made, give yourself a little pat on the back or reward yourself with some time off! It is important to savour the process…the journey for life and happiness is not a destination…they are in the journey!
I think I have always misunderstood the need for ‘balance’, I have always seen balance as a need to quite literally balance your schedule…your personal, work, self-life. This has always been a struggle to find this balance and I think most people would agree, we always hear the importance of work life balance! Many of my clients report struggles with ‘busy’ schedules, trying to fit everything in and find more time in the day, time for themselves etc etc. I now feel that balance is not about the schedule being evenly spread or the hours in the day, it is about finding harmony in what you do and what you feel, and being present in every moment of your day.
Rather than being caught up in rushing from one task to another or thinking about the next task, try fully being present and focussed on what you are doing in that very moment. Find the harmony and the joy in everything that you do, there may be times you need to look a little harder to find this than others, but there is harmony and joy to be found in each day. When you find this space of harmony and/or joy you will find balance, the combination of harmony-joy-balance will centre you back into peace and love allowing the opportunity for miracles to occur, creative solutions and outcomes to appear and time almost magically stands still.
Try it for yourself and watch the magic unfold!
Keep bringing yourself back to your centre, your heart, to love and holding space for yourself here. As a Course in Miracles text says “Only love is real” and so it is.
When you stand in love as your power and truth, you give and receive love unconditionally, see all others from a place of love and as the light reflected back to you. At all times reminding yourself to come back to this space, to see and feel only love, the harmony…the balance…the future…appears almost as if by magic.
This will take work, practice and consistency but when you have this feeling, this sense of magic within you that anything is possible you will want to experience that always.
Expect the best in life, and you will get what you expect!
This is the secret to your inner happiness and success. If you have fears about your future, then you will manifest those fears. It is so much better to only expect the best and affirm that you are worth the very best! Make your wish upon a star, trust your dreams and wishes will come true, your trust and faith is the magic that manifests these dreams and wishes into reality.
So the more you trust, in yourself and the Universe, the more magic you will see unfolding in your life. Keep tuned into your hearts desires and intuition, follow the guidance you receive and hold the belief that everything you desire is on its way to you now, and will arrive in the perfect way at the perfect time for you!
Right now take a moment, close your eyes and imagine the best possible version of you. And know that is who you really are!
Now tune into your heart, your inner guide, intuition and allow your hearts desires to come forward and let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it!
Take a deep breath in and as your exhale, thank the Universe for bringing these to you.
Practice this every day or as often as you can - hold the image, the feeling, the vibration of who you really are and all your hearts desires, and allow yourself to embody this as you go about your day.
My inner guide has encouraged me to share these thoughts and reflections with you, so I hope these thoughts have sparked something within you or perhaps given you a new perspective, to help you find the way forward or to find the time to pause and reflect, whatever may be relevant for you at this time.
I have come to learn that my experiences are coming to me so I have personal knowledge and understanding to enable me to better share and teach others. Whether it is your time to embrace this now or perhaps it will be in the future, I know that we are all exactly where we are meant to be and that these words, these thoughts, will reach whoever needs them at exactly the right time.
Sending you so much love, light and gratitude.
