The lemons in your life are often cues to your next steps, accelerating you closer to your true path. Whenever I hear of someone whose life has completely derailed, it’s hard not to smile sometimes, ..because I can see what’s there waiting on the other side.
Lots of people are going through serious life challenges. People are being forced out their comfort zone. These challenges can be opportunities or pitfalls. Be aware of how you respond. It’s easy to avoid your life by doing other things to keep yourself busy to distract you from what’s really going on. Facebook, television.. going out. It takes alot of courage to stop. To stop and look. To stop and feel.
Yoga and movement help to discharge nervous energy that keeps you from being still, but the yoga asanas ultimately prepare you for meditation. Meditation helps you be with what’s uncomfortable. Sitting in stillness allows you to see more clearly and to tune into your intuition. It is deeply healing and deeply revealing. Being still connects you to the truth of your experience.
You can try to change life, or you can work on shifting yourself to flow with life. Meditation helps you do that.
I am self-publishing a short book on synchronicity. Why, and why now? Because synchronicity often happens amidst major life changes. If you pay attention, you can use synchronistic cues to lead you to your true life’s dharma (path). Synchronicity is a sign of flow and expansion. It is an invitation to grow.
Of course you can always take the long, hard route.. meditation may seem hard, but living in confusion, resistance and fear is much harder! Life then becomes a chore. Meditation, surrendering and being open allows you to flow downstream. It opens your intuition and helps you move together with life.
When life offers you lemons, disappointment or loss.. stop and listen. You are being guided to a new direction.
“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” ~ Unknown
