It seems like we are in the midst of change all over the place.
It’s Fall in the northern hemisphere, transitioning into winter, and the opposite, heading into summer, if you reside in the southern half of the planet. Here the days are getting shorter and the weather cooler. And the leaves are falling from the trees. We’ve raked plenty already!
Here in Canada, we’ve got a new federal government coming into power with a first time Prime Minister at the helm. At the same time, the US is building momentum for its presidential election south of the border. Many countries and many individuals all over the world are in the midst of change.
This is a time of change, a time of transition for all of us!
Change is about new beginnings, an opportunity to make shifts in ways of being, ways of doing, and ways of creating. And it’s not always comfortable. Sometimes it’s downright chaotic!
These times of transition are like doorways that hold many possibilities for expansion. Many people believe that change is difficult, and although it can be, it doesn’t have to be.
If you are dealing with shifts in your personal life, adapt the belief that it can be gentle, easy and beneficial. Become excited about the possibility of positive change. Can you envision it?
Change can be more difficult if you have attachment to the way things have been or if you hold on tightly to fears about the future.
Your unconscious might prefer the old out dated ways – even if they are dysfunctional, simply because they are known. Have you ever heard the phrase, “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t!”? Beliefs like that keep you in fear, afraid of the future and stuck in situations that no longer serve.
This is when you need to find the strength to face your fears about change, trust yourself, your heart, your source and envision where you want to go.
Life is about experience. And that means new things. Wouldn’t it be boring if it was always the same? Change might challenge you, but it also is a great mechanism for personal growth. There is always the potential for more light, more joy, more wisdom and more abundance… even if you can’t see it where you stand in the moment.
Focusing on gratitude and the little things that bring you joy will help you navigate change with more grace and ease. Bring appreciation for the possibilities of positive change to help attract it. Be flexible.
Energy medicine and energy psychology techniques can be immensely helpful in times of challenge and personal growth. Releasing old patterns, beliefs and emotions can help you navigate change, exposing more of your courage, your strengths, your gifts and your true self.
