When the sky is dark and stormy, it is hard to remember that the sun always shines. We know this to be true, but sometimes it feels as if the sun will never come out.
While the last hurricane was stirring up the southeast, all we could see outside was the debris flying, the trees falling and the creeks rising. The next day, after the storm was over, the sky seemed to be the bluest and the sun the brightest it had ever been. It was a magnificent day. But the reality is that the sun was always shining and the sky was always blue. It was just hidden behind the dark clouds.
There are moments like that in each of our lives. As if the dark clouds of our circumstances will never shift and we will never see the light of day. But, just as the sun always shines behind the stormy sky, our true and shining self is always there, behind the circumstances, calmly awaiting our choice to see the light.
It may feel very real, like we are bound by the dark clouds of our circumstances. The truth is that we bind ourselves to the dark clouds. We have choice in every moment. To shift our thinking and choose to see the light. Think of the power in that.
3 Simple Secrets to Seeing the Light:
*Breathe baby breathe Breath is a powerful function. It is both voluntary and involuntary. It can be used to energize or it can be used to calm. However you use it, it will always bring you back to NOW. To the present moment.
*A Grateful Heart Seek abundance and you shall find it. Start a gratitude journal. Make a point every day to find 3 things you are grateful for. You will begin to see an abundance of beauty in the world when you are looking for it.
*Shifting Perception It is unrealistic to move straight from anger to joy but you can choose to make small shifts in your perception. You can choose to think:
I AM shifting into peace. I AM shifting into health. I AM shifting into greatness.
This is what it looks like when it is all working out.
Slight shifts in our thinking can completely change the trajectory of our lives. One thought at a time.
Discover. Empower. Balance.
Wishing you well,
