Weathering the Storms of Life
The storms of life are simply a part of the journey. These dark moments are like traveling through a tunnel that leads to the light. Only in retrospect are we able to determine what we were in the throes of learning. There are, however, some things we can do to minimize the impact on us.
When we sense a storm is brewing, step back and become the observer. Try to see the situation in a detached manner without judgement, anxiety, worry, or fear. Things may appear chaotic, out of order, or even upside down. Negative thoughts may come up, but counter them with the recognition that Divine Order is present in the situation. Open up to intuition and Divine guidance and stay in the moment so the answers we need will come naturally, gently, and on time. Try not to be reactive, but take responsible actions to be safe and warm while you wait for the storm to pass. When you don’t know what to do, do nothing until the way becomes clear.
If our old world is crumbling with the storm, let it go. Trust that your life is progressing and unfolding in a new way. We cannot escape the creative power of the thoughts we’ve had prior to this, but choose new thoughts, new dreams to lead us forward. Picture positive results you would like to have. When you feel stuck or powerless, ask for the help you need.
Our source of well-being, safety, security, and happiness come from a power within ourselves. The connection we have with Spirit provides us with the direction and strength to overcome any storm. When we trust and follow our inner guidance, we will always have the courage, resources, strength, and wisdom we need to move forward after the storm has passed.
