It’s a scientific fact that the vibrations of the earth are moving more rapidly than ever before. And, as such, scientists and spiritualists alike tell me this means that the pace of our lives are speeding up. Hmmm . . . .
Lately, it does feel like every day something significant happens — sometimes good, sometimes bad; sometimes personal, sometime to the collective whole. I’m old enough now to accept the fact that I can’t stop the waves of change, so I hold on to my surfboard and navigate them the best I can. Occasionally, a tsunami hits I go tumbling!
In those instances, often panic has found me flailing about, being sucked under by the current. What’s most scary for me during those times of uncertainty has been what the shoreline of my life will look like when I resurface. Having been tossed about after the loss of a job, loss of relationship, a move, etc., I found letting go of the comfort of the old, moving into something new, to be a most
In time, I’ve learned that not resisting the current, but instead, quieting the mind, allowing the water to flow over me, is the most direct and pleasant way to float to the top. My mantra has become ‘do not freak-out, simply settle-in’.
In hindsight, the ebbs and flows that make up the voyage of my life have served me well. When I find myself panicking in the midst of change, I take an inventory of my past. I revisit times that I felt afraid of change and I recognize how the fear was unproductive, paralyzing and really unnecessary. In fact, amazing miracles I never could have imagined, resulted from what I viewed as some of the most terrifying changes in my life. I see now there was nothing to fear, only opportunity to be seized.
Fight it or flow with it, shifts are happening rapidly. Resisting the inevitable evolution of life only limits vision and wastes precious energy; energy that is better spent focusing on the possibilities our new situation could bring. However we choose to approach the tidal-waves of change, we will always resurface. If we’re wise
enough to embrace the uncertainty rather than fight it, we can’t help but emerge stronger, sturdier, and even happier, than before.
