2015 has been pretty freaking great. But I’ve also never been pushed out of my comfort zone like I have this year. The direction my life is taking is unnerving me. It’s definitely an unsettling feeling.
I also have a lot of expectations from this year. It’s around this time last year that I had embarked on my personal transformation journey.
It’s when my heart had done an intervention and said to me: Darling, it’s time to stop. Listen to yourself. Feel.
As I’m going through this uncomfortable yet magical process, I want to share some ways on how you can create space in your own life to invite magic and miracles.
Notice Your Energy Shifting
Observe yourself as this process is unfolding. You will notice your energy changing towards the relationships and events in your life. You may find yourself becoming inspired and enthusiastic towards some.
For other things in your life, you may notice the opposite. Your energy is withdrawing. You aren’t finding the same level of joy. That’s like a sign that your life is letting go of the old and making room for the new.
I have found this happen to me many times throughout the year. And I find myself rattled every single time.
Don’t Fight the Process
This leads me to my next point. Don’t resist the discomfort. Don’t fight it. Don’t force and knock yourself out trying to figure out why you don’t feel the same.
Let it be. Let them unfold the way they are meant to. This is when trusting the process comes in handy.
Clearing Away Emotional and Physical Attachments
The highest form of trust is simply surrendering to what is unfolding. Many times, you won’t have any idea why or how it’s happening.
The interesting thing is that it will becoming glaringly clear about what you’re attached to. You’ll notice how attached you are to a certain person or circumstance in your life. Let the attachment and hold fall away. This will be an opportunity for you to recognize to not tie your self-worth, identity, value, or happiness to an external circumstance or person.
Embrace Your Emotions in the Process
Expect lots of unsettling feelings to arise. I’ll give you an example. This past weekend, my mind had been puddled with confusion. I was trying too hard to analyze and think about what was happening in my life that I was becoming a bit frustrated.
I was becoming upset at the emotions arising. At first, I wanted to ignore the emotions coming up. But then I decided to just accept how I was feeling.
Observe how you’re feeling like an outside by-stander.
Focus on Your Inner World
What’s going on in your external world is a direct reflection of your inner world. Pay close attention to how you’re feeling. Ask yourself questions like: How am I feeling? What’s going on with me? How is my energy changing?
All these questions direct the focus to your inner world.
Upgrade Your Self-Care Routine
You’re going to be rocked during this process. It’s going to be incredibly uncomfortable. It’s going to be pushing your limits. Then, that means you’re going to have to really take care of yourself and pay attention to your needs.
You will have to be gentle and kind to yourself as you navigate the tricky waters of transformation. Make a smoothie. Go for walks. Treat yourself to a massage. Get your favorite cocktail with a girlfriend. Go out. Take nice, long luxurious naps. Meditate. Journal.
Do what it takes for you to feel centered. And be happy and excited for what’s coming. After all, your life is making room for all the beautiful miracles to enter 🙂
