Don’t Drown In Your Stuff
There are certain times in our life, perhaps for some more than others, when we are suddenly hit with a tidal wave of emotions.
Emotions that leave us feeling like we are drowning and gasping for air, the pressure builds up inside of us, so much so that we feel like screaming at the top of our lungs, it takes all of our will power to keep holding on without falling apart.
We reach for whatever we can clutch in our grip, for any bit of support it will offer us. It may be a sudden event, a circumstance or situation or something as simple as a full moon, whatever it is, it hits us like a tsunami and there is no where to run.
The only thing we can do is brace ourself, face the wave and hold our breath with the hopes we don’t pass out or loose control. Whatever the case what we are feeling sucks and we know it won’t be easy, trying to keep afloat of the tight grip our emotions are having on us.
Trying to keep our feet grounded at the best of times is difficult enough, never mind trying to make sense of this spiritual journey stuff that everyone often talks about. What is life but a series of choices, upsets and stress levels that sometimes reach far beyond what we feel we can handle.
Life is tough at times that is for sure, but life is so much more than how we so often take it for granted. Life is meant to be more than what you are experiencing when the waves hit hard. Life is about spiritual consciousness and when you embrace the courage enough to let go and just ride the waves rather than resist them, you will find that you won’t have to gasp for air in fear of drowning, your breath will come easier, so much so that it will calm you down.
The energy around you can get heavy now and again, the planets in the sky don’t help, but if you can entertain the thought and embrace the reasoning that everything that happens to us, is a gift to us, then you will see how easy it is to calm the waves of emotions that are causing you the upset.
Instead of fighting what arises within you and letting your Ego take the control, work on identifying what the fear is trying to teach you instead. I make it sound easy, it isn’t, but it doesn’t have to be difficult either.
Everything that we ‘feel’ is something that needs our attention. When we allow ourselves to feel what is there on the surface, we are and perhaps unknowingly feeling what is lodged deep within us, wounds that are waiting and longing to heal.
Those same wounds are what keep us imprisoned in our unhappiness, frustration and our emotional tidal waves. Feeling like you are incarcerated and trapped inside of your emotional stuff will make you feel, every now and again like you are drowning.
Please, and I say this with love, learn how to ride the waves instead of always looking for the life boat that never shows us, face your fears and get started on your Soul Work, all of the tools that you need are there for you neatly tucked away inside of your Soul and they are always ready to be used, to help you along your way, all you have to do is reach ‘inside’.
