By trusting, you learn to trust. – Julia Cameron
I’ve noticed how the moments when I get most frustrated with life, are those moments when things are not going exactly as I wish they would.
It’s not even a wish, it’s really a command.
I feel tightness in my solar plexus (I’ll let you google that one to figure out what that means), and a shortness of my breath.
IMPATIENCE. I recognize it well. Although with time, I have increased my ability to be patient, I have always rushed myself and even others to proceed quickly through life. Through various moments in life. The rush to experience tomorrow is a resistance to bask in today. The discomfort of the present moment has us holding on to the possibilities of an unknown future. However, when we are having a great time in the moment, in the NOW … it cannot last long enough! (2 hours of dance class, in my case, flies by!)
The vacation wasn’t long enough, the summer is already over … you know what we all tend to collectively whine about. However, what would happen if we chose to trust and surrender to each moment as being perfect in our lives? How would we then approach Monday mornings, our relationships, winter, hiccups throughout the day, traffic, mistakes [add your disappointments and frustrations
What would happen if we chose to trust and surrender to each moment as being perfect in our lives? How would we then approach Monday mornings, our relationships, winter, hiccups throughout the day, traffic, mistakes [add your disappointments and frustrations here]? If we surrendered and thanked God, the Universe, Higher Consciousness (or whatever and whomever you believe in), for that very moment we are resisting, what would happen next? YOU tell me … try it.
I am learning to let go of the silly expectations of how my life “should” be unfolding. It’s the only way to truly embrace the present. Instead of fighting with is so it can unfold as expected. Cause… it won’t! Embrace the unknown, the unexpected as LIFE. Become aware of how your mind,
Embrace the unknown, the unexpected as LIFE. Become aware of how your mind, body, and soul respond in those moments. What’s keeping them from responding well? Ah, those unending thoughts…quiet!
If there’s something you can do to change your current situation, then do it! Make that change! Create a life you LOVE waking up to. Create those ongoing or small moments of MAGIC to reignite your SOUL.
But, surrender to those moments you cannot change.
Trust that they are happening for a greater purpose. Be aware of what your life lessons in those moments are trying to tell you. Be kind to yourself if you cannot immediately recognize what you are meant to see or understand. Most importantly, when you choose to surrender and trust, allow your HEART to express itself. Act intuitively and with integrity. It is the gate that when opened, will create the magic you have been waiting for.
