In my practice, I am often approached with the question, “ok well, how do I fix that or change that about myself?” It’s interesting when you have that moment in your life where everything comes to a screeching halt. All of a sudden you can’t do your life the way you’ve been doing it anymore. Whether you’re the caretaker, the one in charge, the leader or the leaf in the wind, the observer, the one in the stands-not actually playing the game. All of a sudden it’s in front of you and you’re looking at what you have done with that. And you just don’t have the energy or the strength to engage in life that way anymore.
Take a breath…because you need to, you have to, you can. You are, my dear girlfriend, at what is called a crossroads in life. You are so lucky because now you have the opportunity (if you DARE) to change the course of your life and start living for You. You can break your SELF wide open and see what really lies beneath all those things you thought you should do with your life. You really get to check in with the authentic YOU.
Buy yourself a beautiful journal because this is going to be just about you and what you are all about inside. If you like glitter go get one with glitter all over. If you are more the leather-bound type then splurge and get the beautiful cognac color one, make sure it speaks to you immediately. You’ll know because you’ll love it at first sight.
Here are some guidelines to get you started in finding you:
- What did you always want to be when you were a kid? What were you passionate about when you were younger?
- If you didn’t have any responsibilities what would you love to do with your life?
- What is breaking you open right now? Think about your heart and what do you want to tell it?
Part of this journey and path right now is to start bringing awareness to you about YOU. What are you aware of in your body right now? Is your stomach tight? Does your head hurt? Are you sweating? Most people are very dimly self aware and can manage for a large part of their life like this, but at some point if you want to grow you have to begin the process of becoming more aware. Keep charging ahead, my friend, and know that you have the strength, you have the awareness already inside of you. It will surface and give your soul what it aches for…your true SELF.
