Life happens. Sometimes as a human you go through the motions on auto-pilot. Other times, you are trying to just keep the plane flying.
In recent weeks, you might have had stressful deadlines, overloaded work schedules and conflicts, maybe you might have had ‘too much going on’ – and feeling a bit taxed, stressed and depleted.
Maybe you have had anxiety, nervousness with a lot of uncertainty over what is going on in your life with many things happening at once with your family, friends and social circles and their energy. Are you contemplating some life-altering decisions?
Right now, it is peacefully, joyfully fulfilling and quiet in your being.
Are you questioning why you are feeling mellow, calm and dare I say… Zen?
WHY? Have you had some sort of transformation? Are you feeling disconnected?
Whether or not you can put your finger on “the WHY” you are calm, I would like to propose a few thoughts to inspire you to believe that maybe your idea of trusting in the highest, greatest good is finally sinking in.
In this world of greater awareness of ‘how to chill out’ … and an escalation of ‘self-care’ practices, the human psyche, and spirit are becoming more conscious than ever before.
While the mainstream is starting to shift in the openness to be ‘aware’ – how much credit have you given yourself to know that you know yourself better today, than you did a few years ago?
Have you given thought to the ‘process’ of life where ‘going with the flow’ seems easier, where your human does not get all riled up over things that used to bug you?
So maybe your ‘control freak’ side of yourself has learned to calm down.
Maybe your own self-value has risen to know you need to take care of yourself better.
On the other hand, just maybe you are finally realizing that wasting energy on what is not in your hands and worrying about it, will not solve the problem.
WELCOME TO “THE-CALM-BEFORE-THE-STORM ENERGY!”
You have graduated to a place where you know that sitting in stillness sometimes, while uncomfortable ‘since you’d rather be doing something’ – is good for you to regroup your energies, refuel your inner being’s tank of positivity, and reinforcing ‘what is’ and knowing what is needed.
Bravo, Lovely Souls! This is a better place for you.
I wanted to do this blog today to remind you that you don’t need to be alarmed for this “shift” or “change” when others wonder why you are ‘not freaking the heck out’ over your situation.
Are you sitting with your calm-Zen-self proud of how you are coping? You should be… it could be new territory and I wanted to help reassure you that “ALL IS WELL.”
It is okay to be calm, especially if you know uncontrollable (not in your hands) disruption will happen in your life, and along with it may come the “Murphy’s Law” side effects of your rational adult decisions.
Sometimes, even if you play it safe, or have well-laid plans – things may twist a different direction to keep things interesting because CHANGE IS INEVITABLE and meant to show you that what is coming will ultimately benefit you, even if you do not see all of the pieces right now.
Trust that behind-the-scenes, things are actually working FOR YOU – so that you evolve, learn, stretch, and expand yourself in new ways that maybe your original plans did not factor into previously.
The bigger questions now are:
- · How will you ride this tide?
- · Who will you become in this exercise of your soul’s expansion?
- · What will you be most grateful for in the process?
- · Where will you take this growth factor next?
- When will you begin to accumulate the higher-level lessons and choose to apply them going forward?
- · Who are you now because of knowing what you know in the present moment?
When we take a step back to examine our “Calm-before-the-storm” energy, we can further evaluate the reasons “WHY” this is necessary in order to strengthen the bigger change and transformation, which comes with growth.
Everyone is a work in progress. Our best selves are yet to come and our best lives are taking shape in every minute of every moment – THIS is what the calm energy is for and how we can benefit from using it to our best ability.
So take a deep breath, Lovely Souls.
All is well.
You will be okay.
Moreover, yes, YOU’VE GOT THIS… all you need to do now is to rest in the calm; rejoice in the chaos when it arrives, knowing you had the wisdom to refuel your soul’s energy in the now.
