The past few weeks I have been a bit in hibernation mode. As I wrote in my last blog spirit was calling me to BE BRAVE! Let go of FEAR, ask for help, surrender .. WELL let’s just say I had to learn the hard way. Keep reading to learn exactly why we should listen to our intuition LOL.
A few weeks ago I noticed a bump on my left knee. I didn’t think anything of it at first and then that bump turned into my whole knee being red, inflamed, swollen…I felt like it was screaming at me STOP, STOP, STOP! I did a meditation to check in with my intuition to see what this was about and the message I got was it is time to rest and just be, you need to learn to just be.
At first I felt like arguing and saying…but you don’t understand, I need to
be marketing, seeing clients, and do x,y,z. Finally, I could barely walk so I stopped and took some time and propped up my feet. I was limping around for about two weeks. (and NO I DIDN’T go to the doctor! I CHOSE not to that's another story and blog lol).
I tend to be an over processor and I really like to figure out and understand the WHY behind everything and the past few days things have really been coming to light as to WHY I needed to experience this HEALING CRISIS and down time.
We all have moments in our lives where we feel like our world is toppling down whether it's with finances, our health, our relationships, our jobs, etc. What I continue to learn is that the magic happens when we learn how to be in the moment without judging it our trying to change it. Today I want to share with you some juicy tips I learned over the past couple of weeks...of how to deal when life gives you lemons.
Look for the blessings and the gifts
Every cloud has a silver lining. It is your CHOICE if you want to see it
or not. When I finally stopped and took time to prop my feet up I was able to see the beauty around me unfold. I was able to open up to receive love
My boyfriend was so amazing…he treated me like a princess. He fixed me candle lit healing baths, brought me cold compresses, made sure I had my herbs, or anything else I wanted. And my family and friends check in with me daily which was an assurance to me of how much they really care. It was the
first time in a while that I felt myself open up to receive love.
When we are busy doing, we are in masculine energy (giving energy) and it
isn’t until we come back to the feminine energy of receiving, being, allowing
that we can truly receive. Not only was I not receiving the love around me I wasn’t receiving the gifts of spirit and the universe…the message had been there for me. They were telling me what I needed to do but it wasn't until I really stopped that I was able to understand it.
Learn to accept and allow
So at one point during my healing I thought well let me do some work from my chair. So I did some research and set up some meeting…well don’t you know when it came time for things to happen I had to reschedule my plans. Once again I was trying to force things! It’s kind of like giving a waiter your order then saying – ok you got it? And then going in the back and trying to fix them meal yourself. It just doesn’t work. They tell you to sit back down – and that’s exactly what happened to me LOL my legs got inflamed again and the universe was telling me I had to sit back down.
The truth is that I needed to feel and experience my internal world. I needed my fears, insecurities, projections, and stories to come to light and to unfold before me. Finally started to accept my situation, not judge it, and allow it to run its course. I watched as feelings came up, noticed my stories, and practiced being compassionate with myself. And as I did this, things started to heal and I started to feel better.
It is time to re-write your story
I’ve been working on this blog since Monday and I have written and deleted it at least 7 times! At first I was like OK spirits guide me…what do I need to say? and I felt like I had no guidance or direction because I would start and I would read what I wrote and I wasn't satisfied with it. Yesterday I realized that they were telling me! "Re-write your story"! The things that I were writing were the old! Old believes old stories..the same old SHIT. Now it is clear to me... it is time to rewrite our stories!
The past few weeks all of my fears, insecurities, projections, and STORIES have been coming to light. So much has been coming up around the things that I want to let go of! This is the perfect opportunity to create and re-write my stories. I no longer need to live in past fears, insecure places, or stories that have not been working for me. It is safe for me to let go and be free!
So I have been thinking what do I want my new story to be? What do I want it to look and how do I want it to feel like?
I choose You
A few days ago I started working out again (THANK GOD it had been 2 1/2 long weeks of sitting LOL). As I listened to Pandora one of my new favorite songs came on " I Choose You" by Sara Bareilles. As I listened to this love song I thought...what if this was MY love song! From myself to myself! What if in every moment I choose ME, I followed my heart, my spirit, and my truth. I let go of what others think I should do or want me to do. I stepped into my full power, potential, and soul's desire to love myself enough to choose me! I decided this is my new practice and my new story... be brave, choose you, you are free!
What do you want your new story to be? How do you want it to look and feel?
And Don't forget to make lemonade!
My dear friend Shelby has been such a blessing to me the past few weeks! She has been an amazing support system for me during my healing. She gave me input and suggestions on self-care strategies and treatment plans (she is a RN and she is so intuitive). Well, she suggested that I add lemon to my water – MY BATH WATER that is! I was willing to try anything so I did it. It was absolutely amazing! It was so refreshing. I could feel all cells in my body opening up. In addition to getting my energy flowing I felt like it lifted my spirits. I highly recommend you try for yourself and let me know how it goes :0)
