Growth Hurts!

Life seems like a challenge right now.  If it doesn’t hurt, you’re not doing it right.  Now is a time to grow and expand.  Growth hurts!
 
Think back to when you were a kid.  When you grew taller, you would be tired.   You would sleep more and eat more, but eventually everything would even out.
 
Growth in life is the same way.  It hurts.  You exercise for the first time, and it hurts the next day.  Each time you work a new muscle group, it hurts again.
 
When you’re expanding your knowledge base, there’s bound to be pain involved.  That doesn’t mean that you should run though, the universe will always find you.  The next time the lesson will be a little more complex.
 
It seems you may want things to stay the same, but that’s just not possible.  Or maybe you want someone to do the hard work for you.  That’s not an option either.
 
You came here to experience life.  Growth is a natural part of life.  You don’t just go from Point A to Point E, you must go through Points B, C, and D before you get there.
 
Even when you think you have tackled this lesson, there could be another layer to work through.  No matter how much you want to, life is a process, and it doesn’t always happen overnight.  The things that you desire the most you must work for.
 
Growth is hard, but on the other side of each obstacle.  It could be everything you’ve ever wanted.  Seeds don’t grow overnight.  It can take months or even years to get the desired result.  Keep working on it, you will get there and one day you will be in awe of how much you’ve grown.

Can You Only See It This Way?

Do you have a set dream or vision that you can only see happen in a specific way?  It’s time to introduce some flexibility into your vision.
 
When you can only see one path, it makes it challenging for the universe to help things along.  Things rarely happen in the exact way we envision them.
 
This is a time to release your expectations.  Things don’t always happen how you expect.  What happens then?  Disappointment.  Beating yourself up.  Wondering what happened?  Where did I go wrong?  You do down this rabbit hole that can be challenging to dig yourself out of.
 
Letting go of expectations isn’t easy.  They seem to happen quite naturally.  Letting of anything can be complicated but may be necessary to make the result a reality. 
 
The process of manifestation doesn’t always work how you expect.  Emotions get in the way.  Reality gets in the way.  Other people get in the way.  The list goes on.
 
Cut the ties to your expectations.  In whatever way best serves you.  There is no right way.
 
This doesn’t mean that you don’t try to work towards your vision.  The path will begin the journey.  Follow the clues.  Follow the signs.  Trust your intuition.  And be open to what presents itself.

Just Release

Over the course of the last few weeks, something has been revealed to you.  You’re receiving clarity on something.  You’re going to start working toward a goal soon, but before you do, look at what’s rising to the surface.
 
Emotions are coming up.  You may feel confused, sad, guilt, fear, or any number of other emotions.  You may feel a lot of emotion at once or could even just feel numb.  You’re at a point where the emotion needs to be addressed and released.
 
You’re shifting and changing.  It’s what 2021 is all about.  Your life isn’t going to be the same and there can be a grieving process for what might not have gone entirely as planned.  You had your sights set on it, but it just didn’t work that way.
 
It’s ok.  Sometimes you just need to let it unfold as it’s meant to.  It doesn’t always go as planned.  You have a tendency to want to avoid pain.  You’re not alone in this.
 
It’s important to step into the pain.  You shouldn’t try to ignore it.  It’s like a wave.  In order to ride a wave, you have to go into it.
 
You can’t avoid the emotions.  No matter how hard you try.  If you try to ignore the pain, it could catch up with you.  You want to release the pain.  Release the past.  Move into the next chapter with a little less baggage.
 
As you move through this time, give yourself the space you need.  You may be tired, sleep.  You may not want to speak to anyone, don’t.
 
Things will start moving soon, so process.  Feel whatever rises to the surface.  It will all be ok.

Revise or Toss?

With so many planets in Virgo and the Sun moving into Virgo on August 22, we’re being asked to clean up our lives, but not in the way that you might think.
 
2021 has been about building a new structure for your life.  How has that process been going for you?  You’re moving into a time where decisions will need to be made.  Do you like the choices that you’ve made so far?  You’ve been receiving clues and hints from the universe about what you still may need to charge.
 
The first part of changing up a room in your house is to clean up what’s currently there.  Do you just move things around or do a deep clean?  Do you look through what you have and toss what you no longer need?
 
This is the process that you will be going through with your life.  You may be one of those people who want to cut off an arm before they’re willing to part with something, but know this, sometimes you have to part with something to bring in what you really want.
 
The time to make a commitment to your new structure is coming.  You still have time to determine the path, but the foundation of the new structure is being laid.
 
What do you want the new foundation to look like?  Do you want it to be the same?  Do you want it to be a combination of old and new?  Or will it be completely different?  Only you can answer that question. 
 
Start thinking and implementing what you want your life to look like.  You will still have choices to make as you go along, but you’re being pushed to start the process.
 
It’s always better to move through the process at a pace that works for you, than to have decisions made for you.

Time To Transform

As you head into summer, what do you want your life to look like?  The sun is shining and illuminating different areas of your life.
 
It’s the time of year when growth tends to be easier to handle.  You may like your life the way it is, or you may still have some dreams that you’re looking to explore.
 
Transformation can happen when you least expect it.  It’s not always something that you’re seeking.  The last year you’ve seen a lot of things happen that you never thought you would.  The structure of your life may have crumbled down around you.
 
It’s time to rebuild.  Take a chance and do something that you never considered before.  Follow your dreams.  Go after it.  What’s the worst thing that can happen?
 
Fear has held you back for too long.  If you want change to occur, something different must happen.  Your life can’t transform when you’re gripping on to the past and won’t let go.
 
The past few weeks hopefully you’ve been cleaning up and letting go of the past.  Transformation wants to unfold in your life, but you need to let it.
 
Have you taken steps and just need to pull the trigger?  Maybe you’re still questioning whether you have to?  The answer is most likely yes.  Change can be terrifying, but once you do it, you may wonder why you let your fear hold you back and didn’t do it sooner.
 
Fear can hold you back and keep you from transforming you into the person you’re mean to be.  It may be challenging but take a chance and see what happens.  What you want could happen and transform your life for the better.

Is It The Heat Of The Moment?

Do you ever find yourself triggered?  It could be from a phone call, conversation, email or just scrolling through social media.  You desperately want to respond.  Put that other person in their place.  You want to tell them that’s not true or maybe just unleash all of your anger about something else.
 
Try something different.  Take a step back.  Let yourself get to a place where you’re calm.  Words can be unleashed in anger that you can’t take back.
 
You may find yourself having a confrontation with an employee who’s just doing their job.  You may just say something that isn’t true.  There’s a tendency to not be your best self at these moments.
 
Being triggered is meant to be a moment where you have the opportunity to see things clearly.  Triggers are meant to make you uncomfortable.  They’re meant to help you grow.  You can only truly grow in those moments.
 
When everything is going along the way you want it, are you going outside of your comfort zone?  I’m guessing the answer is no.
 
The darkness is where you learn.  It’s not meant to be all lollipops and rainbows.  You came here to learn.  What you come here to learn is for you to decide.  You aren’t meant to stay in one place.
 
So the next time you start feeling angry or uncomfortable, take a step back.  Ask yourself questions and try to come from a place that is kind to yourself and those around you.  The world could use a little more kindness.

Between Worlds

Do you know what the future looks like?  If you do, aren’t you lucky!  If not, join the club.  You may have ideas.  You may have hopes and dreams, but it’s not certain until it lands in the present.
 
There are times where you so badly want something to happen, that you don’t live in the present moment.  You live for creating the future.  That perspective may eventually take you where you want to go, but it can also be emotionally draining.  You’re always seeking and searching rather than being able to accept life for what it is.
 
The same can be said if you’re a person that lives in the past.  You may believe the best days of your life are behind you.  You miss what was instead of what is.
 
Living in the present can be a challenge.  Especially for those who are trying to create a better you.  The trials of life are hard.  You so desperately want to be happy and there isn’t a lot of happiness in the world.
 
Last year the rug was pulled out from under you, and nothing is the same.  It’s not meant to.  You’re in the rebuilding stage.  You’re creating something new, and unfortunately, it doesn’t happen overnight.  You’re going to stumble, and you may even fail along the way.
 
Life’s journey is never easy and it’s the in-between areas of life where you learn the most about yourself and others.
 
For so much of life, the in-between areas are challenging and difficult, but there’s value.  Take the in-between area for what it is.  The area where a puzzle is started.  You start putting the pieces together and one day it will be completed.
 
For now, it may be messy and unknown, but there’s something there to be explored.  What in-between areas of life are you exploring?   Let me know. Do you want to know more, click here to book a discovery session or an appointment.

Give It A Go

Are you afraid to try something new or even something that you did a long time ago?  Sometimes you have to be brave to try either one.
 
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term bravery is “the quality or state of having or showing mental or moral strength to face danger, fear, or difficulty.”  While bravery may often show up in times of war, it can just as easily be used to define a person that’s willing to face their fears.
 
Facing your fears doesn’t just mean running into a burning building either.  It could be something that’s held you back for months or years.   It could be as simple as trying something.
 
As a child, I was never a great roller skater, but I could roller skate.  However, I haven’t been roller skating in at least 20 years.  I decided recently I was going to try.  I didn’t even know if I’d be able to stand up.  I bought a helmet and put on the roller skates.  Surprise, I could stand up!  Moving around is a different story.  I do great skating on the grass, but the cement is trickier.  My niece and nephew took my hand to help.  At the end of a half-hour on skates, I decided that I should purchase some pads.  It would have been so easy to criticize myself.  I used to be able to do this and now I can’t.  But I decided to applaud myself for trying and once my pads I will try again.
 
Maybe for you, it's not roller skates, but the story still applies.  Did you try?  If you did, it takes bravery to face rejection or getting hurt to try.  You don’t know unless you try.  Don’t lash out at yourself because it wasn’t perfect, or you lost ground.  It rarely is.  The point is what did you do that you might have otherwise.
 
If you tried, you were brave.  If you didn’t, there’s always tomorrow.  There are days where you’re going to get stuck in your head.  That’s ok.  You might have to work towards it.  That’s ok too. 
 
Nobody says that you must accomplish everything today.  It can be a progression towards your goal.  The question is did you try?

Why Am I Alone?

Why are you alone?  It would be nice if there was a simple answer or even an answer.  You could be all by yourself or in a room filled with people and still feel alone.  These days you’re not alone in feeling that way.  There are many just like you.  The question becomes how to resolve it.  Again, there are no easy answers.  Feelings can be as powerful as anything that is experienced.
 
It's a feeling that you have to search within you to resolve.  Ask yourself why do I feel this way?  How often do I feel this way?  Maybe you experience it for a moment or it's ongoing.
 
You never expected to end up here.  You can be single or married.  It doesn’t matter.  You must look at yourself for the answers.  It would be so much easier to blame it on someone else or have someone else solve it for you.  It’s a method that has its uses but is never a long-term solution.
 
Sometimes you must explore the darkness and it must be done alone.  No one else can do it for you.
 
It can be difficult to believe there’s a reason for you feeling this way, but there’s an answer.  Maybe it’s a belief that you have.  Maybe you’re afraid.
 
There are all emotions that you can start to work with.  You must have a little bit of courage and take a leap of faith.  If it’s a fear, the only way to overcome it is through it.  If it’s a belief, that takes more effort.
 
You don’t have to feel alone.  There’s a world of people out there.  Your best friend could be right around the corner.

But I Don’t Want It to End!

Endings can be complicated and complex.  You may want something to end, but there can be emotions involved that you’re not ready to deal with yet.
 
Life comes in cycles.  There’s always a beginning, middle, and end.  But like a circle, for something new to start, you must release something that doesn’t.
 
For the new to begin, you may have to confront a fear that’s held you back for years.  You may have to speak it aloud.  Speaking what you want may be one of the hardest to do.  There’s always the chance that someone can say no.  If you have trouble just speaking it aloud, the response of no can be a blow that stops you in your tracks.  The challenging part of no can be a no for now.  But the no could signify an ending of sorts.  It could be the end of a dream and the beginning of something new.
 
You have faced challenges, many of which you wished would end, but didn’t.  You ready to start something new but needed to address something else first.
 
There is a transition that happens between endings and beginnings.  One that can often seem seamless.  One day the world seems one way and the next it's completely changed.  In March 2020, for so many, an old way of doing things ended and a new began.
 
It can be difficult to determine what keeps you from ending something, but there’s typically an element of fear involved.  Facing your fears may be one of the hardest things you do.  Others may surround you and comfort you on your journey, but they can’t live life for you.  You’re the only one who can do it.
 
For most obstacles in life, there’s no doubt that endings can be one of the hardest, but there can often be a gift on the other side.  Remember to tell yourself, that everything you want is on the other side of fear.
