A wise being told me to be like water, just flow with it, whatever it is.
For someone like me who tends to be tightly wound, it’s easier said than done.
I am learning, as with everything else it is a practice. In the past, the idea of practice made me want to run away. It’s boring, too hard,takes too long…
What I’ve come to realize, is we are always practicing, consciously or not is another story. Whatever we practice daily becomes our life experience. If we unconsciously watch the news and focus on the all the fear, crime, corruption, and lack, this is what we see in our daily lives. It plays out in our relationships, work situations, our health, ect. It takes courage to go against the norm. To stay positive when all around is negativity.
I have been consciously practicing to live more consciously. Although it may sound confusing, it’s definitely simpler than how we automatically operate now. In paying attention to why I make certain choices, recreating negative circumstances in my life, self sabotaging, I was afforded the opportunity to see a life long pattern of people pleasing stemming from childhood.
In talking with a friend, I experienced the most amazing thing. The pipes in her home had frozen. She had all of her faucets and shower on, but had not had any water for hours. It was the day we had temperatures of only 8 degrees. I have an understanding of water symbolizing emotion. Also that emotions are energy. When emotions are blocked, energy is blocked. At the exact time I released my blocked energy around people pleasing through tears, water started flying out of all the valves in her home.
I thanked the universe for the clear message of what’s possible through conscious choice and clearing energy.
