Good afternoon! I hope this post finds you making your way through the week with ease! My weather at home has been so beautiful, thank goodness, so I can get outside more. I love being outside, but hate being cold! Bring on the sunshine! I'm looking forward to a house full of family this weekend for the Easter holiday!
Anyways, something pretty powerful (to me) came though in a session a few days ago, that I want to share. I was right in the middle of a session with one of my clients, and as she was seeking life guidance, my guides said to her, "are you coping, or transforming." Now, you might find yourself asking, 'well what does this really mean?' It was along the lines of addressing stagnancy in an unhealthy relationship. But, no matter what situation you're in, if you are always coping, then you are always dealing with the results-and will always wind up stuck, in the same cycles, the same patterns. We wind up letting life happen to us, instead of creating life through ourselves, When did we give up? When did we stop trying? It's almost as if we stop trying before we even realized that we have the capacity to change our lives, our realities. When we let life happen to us, we reside in the victim mentality, always feeling defeated, always reacting and learning to cope.
In order to change the patterns in our lives, we must allow transformation to occur, from one situation to the next. Take time to observe yourself, through various situations, and make notes of what you can change, or how you can grow. We live in a world that is ever-evolving, and we must allow ourselves to grow, adapt and be transformed too. When we allow ourselves to be transformed, we are adapting, continually allowing ourselves to be renewed, but when we resist change, and transformation, we find ourselves coping, and inventing new coping strategies left and right. Then, we become fixated on the strategies and new habits are born, that perpetuate the stagnancy. We begin to create an identity with our coping strategies, and if our strategies fall through or we stress ourselves further, to upholding these strategies...well you can see it's a vicious cycle.
If we merely allow ourselves to step into a state of reception and self observation, transformation will perpetuate our growth, our evolution. Allow yourselves to be transformed.
