I have been in connect with so many lately and it seems quagmire, cocooning, confusion, slowing down, not knowing, uncertainty, all words I have heard. Many have stepped back from our usual ambitioning. Taking time to go inward and it is not necessarily comfortable, yet seems the call. No one certain as they were before, reviewing, evaluating, revaluing what is important. This is a crazy time. Our government issues, our inflation, our unrest is everywhere. How do we find our balance?
I, too, have been on my own re-creation journey in new lands. It is not easy or comfortable most times. I often wonder what should I be doing? I interact in groups and expand but it is not always so fun or cozy always being "new" and explaining my story. As a flower farmer for years, I am quite cozy on my own. I can isolate or recluse especially when I am not feeling powerful. Many post all their fun on social media and often we think their lives are filled with joy. It is a great positive media yet we must remember most are going through a catharsis. As above and so below. With the world in shift, so are we.
I inspire you to use this time to up level yourself. I have found through this time that some of my self talk has become clearly not helpful. I seem to ask, "Why is it not working?' Well the answer to that question is never ending as though that question is going to help me get things working. I am clearer in watching myself, my own questions I ask, what I focus on and these have been great tweaks to myself. I have encountered many emotions that I never had in my home town. Being lonely, feeling jealous,(something I never really dealt with feeling before), second guessing my choices, all emotions that come up when confusion and instability is around. Our world reflecting this so we too getting chances to clear ourselves.
I have listened to motivated doers who are at a lull. have ditched projects and are going in new directions. This is not normally the case as we like to complete things. With this uncertainty, it can get in us and our personal ideas. Remembering it is occurring world wide supports us to not consider we are just lost. Humanity is in a transition so we all get to participate on the outside and inside. I find it again, a time to notice myself, observe, see if these are outdated ideas and patterns or just the energy of the larger world reflecting to me. Second guessing or doubting ourselves never a healthy practice.
I wrote to let you know, no one is alone in this. We are all in a quagmire, reviewing and a bit confused. It is not you personally only. It is us all and the larger energy field has a great affect on us. I do encourage you to be with your feelings and shift through them. Getting in disagreements or battles with others is high now and often the case when things are in unrest inwardly. Chances are whomever you conflict with, you will not open or change their mind. When defenses are up and people are clear on their opinions, I find it best to disengage or just listen. I won't turn anyone on to something new when they are in that righteous, I know space. So be cautious with whom you surround yourself and engage. Silence is golden when conflict is the other choice.
I also inspire you to really hone your radar on what is joyful about. It is harder these days to have joy when we are all in a big field of confusion and conflict. It seems everywhere you go, on all stations. I am using this as my refinement to find joy even harder. Nature offers it often to me. I do take time to reset more, doing Tai Chi for a few minutes or just looking at the mountains. I am more aware of my emotions and when discomfort is building, I take responsibility to shift. Either a friend, a book, a quote, an action that can lift me is a great practice. As I said, hone in on joy and get better at finding it. Use the tools you have learned in life to reset as this is a good time to become a master at that.
Resting more, self care in greater levels, quiet time or meditation all help. An old adage when it is foggy, just sit. A hard thing to do when we are in strife, uncertain or panic. Yet if you don't know what to do, doing nothing can be the best solution. Otherwise you could use that angst energy and create an issue with something or some one just because that resistance inside is present. Take care of yourself. Be wise and listen to what your body needs not what you should be doing. These all very different than our training but more effective and good times to practice caring for you so you can add to the world in positive ways.
I am right here with you all in finding my way. It is challenging and many others are feeling it. Rather than let that larger field affect you, step away and listen. I think our guidance systems are being activated on greater levels and listening for it is part of this time. A new world is unfolding and we are part of it. I feel that I want to add to the world in good ways, inspiring equality, individuality and freedom to be ourselves. I must notice, direct and control myself when this energy is around. It is easy to get caught up in. Yet I am creating a new way of myself and for the world. Take this crazy time to really up level and know you. See what can change and become more real as you. We can lift others by just lifting ourselves. I inspire you to do that. What other choices in joy do we have but to create it when it seems rare to find.
Blessings to you all as we are on this transformational journey!
