We do this over and over: crave change. Think about how many times in even one single month we desire the feeling of: new, exciting, different, out of the ordinary, hoping to break up the monotony. AND then in response and resonant with our desires, change actually shows up and begins shifting our lives and routines; how do we often respond? We panic, stress over the change, immediately desiring it to halt. Funny Beings aren't we? I am not sure I have ever met anyone not intimately familiar with the above dichotomy.
What are we to do? Remain doomed to emotional flip flopping? After deeply contemplating this conundrum, I created a few pointers to help maintain high frequency in times of change in order to more smoothly navigate the potentially dangerous forest of change and uncertainty.
The moment we accept the constant that Life changes, we can relax into the unknown aspect of change. Isn't it this "unknown" that we ultimately react to? Change actually feels fun and exciting when free of the element of "not knowing". Add in the element of unknown and watch our emotional selves start spinning out of control. Using acceptance and then gratitude, we keep our emotional states in high frequency where we can eventually stabilize in higher expressions like excitement, possibility, fun, joy, etc.
These suggestions to help navigate seamlessly through the waves of change have helped me weather some unsettling times and circumstances. May they serve you as well!
My deepest wish for lovely months ahead!
