Do you spend a lot of time thinking about your future wishing you won the lottery so that you can experience happiness, travel, and more fun in your life? Well you are not alone. Most of the people I work with during my coaching sessions and channeled reading are dreaming about the future or living in the past. People tend to come to me because they are stuck, stuck in the energy of the past or stuck in the energy of fear of taking a leap of faith towards what they really desire to have or be in their life.
I have found that people have forgotten that they have the power to have a beautiful happy life right now. It is important to choose to step into your power and see your self wise and strong enough to choose your destiny or destination. In general, people do not realize the waiting for life to happen instead of making it happen, will cause them to feel tired, lethargic, and unmotivated to see the opportunities that are available. Waiting, think of a waiting room, will actually zap their energy and cause them to lose your focus. When people lose focus, they get stuck, then shift into depression with a feeling that life is against them and there is no way out. After a while the stuck energy will turn into fear causing even more stuck energy. Understand that fear and getting stuck is normal. If you feel it is time to take a leap of faith and something doesn’t turn out exactly as planned, learn from it and try a different approach. The fear and feeling stuck is a low vibration of negative self-talk that be shifted with ease and grace.
If you are trying to move forward in your life, take baby steps each day to have the life you love. For example, in the low country many people get into a stuck place about having the money to have fun. They think you must have money to have fun and happiness. The first baby step in this situation is to make a list of all the fun free activities that are available. Right now, in the low country area people have access to free outdoor movies, free concerts, and free festivals. For most outdoor events people are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch. I participated in three free events this past week. I went to Freshfields out by Kiawah Island for music in the park. It was a great band and I danced with my friends and made new acquaintances. I went to Folly Beach and watched a free movie by the ocean called Shark Tales. It was nice to see people and watch the kids laugh at the movie. During the June full moon, there was a free drum circle on Folly Beach. I drummed, danced and enjoyed watching the fire throwers twirl their wands of fire in the most magical dance ever.
The key to moving forward is to move. Get out of your head and recognize that opportunities are right here and right now. For the people who are stuck in the past, suffering from the pain they experienced from childhood wounds or adult drama from love gone wrong, it is time to stop dwelling, forgive and move on. Thinking about the past, digging up bones from who did who wrong causes even more stuck energy than waiting. Why? Because people are waiting for someone to apologize and make things right. People who get stuck waiting for an apology rarely receive it and will waste much of their life holding on to pain, anger, grief, disappointment and deep sadness. If this is you, take time to see a healer, a Reiki practitioner, or even someone like me, so that you understand what karma you were trying to balance as you connected with someone who wounded you. There is a lesson in every relationship. We can choose to see that lesson as pain or come to understand the lesson as a soul expanding opportunity. Either way, it is time to chose to heal, let go, forgive and move forward. You are doing this for you, not for the other person. Heal for your personal mental health and physical wellbeing. In the book, In the Garden of Thoughts by Dodinsky, I find that the words, “A mind preoccupied with thoughts of resentment and bitterness cannot change the past. Nor do those thoughts wound anymore but the soul that beholds them.” reminds me to focus on me and let the negative crap from the past go. I have been through my share of love gone wrong, financial challenges, especially as a single mom, and resented many in the past. Now I chose forgiveness and opportunity to have the life I want now.
My father-in-law passed on May 4, 2019. I am reminded life is short and my personal power in my thoughts determines my personal power. Therefore, instead of waiting, I make life happen now. What are you waiting for?
