Is the month of December showing up as stress, anticipation, chaos, overwhelm, lack of focus, tension or fear? Do you find you are rushing around and getting less done? Are you being pulled in several directions at the same time? Are you out of energy and feeling all used up? Does the thought of a new year bring up all sorts of regrets, incompletions, frustration, disappointment, discouragement and additional overwhelm? I invite you to stop where you are and take a deep breath. What if I told you that all of that was a reflection of your inner world and you are merely projecting it to your outer world? I can promise that if you are willing to do the work to intervene on the internal chaos and clutter, your outer world chaos and clutter will begin to diminish also.
Give yourself a little self-care and stop long enough to listen to what is going on inside of you. I invite you to stop trying to be somewhere and someone else. You can't be anywhere other than who you are and where you are in this moment.
Your way through any and all of what you are experiencing is one moment at a time and one step at a time. This moment is your next step. In this moment, I invite you to relax, let your body soften, close your eyes and take a deep breath into the area of your heart. Allow yourself to bring attention to your breathing. Allow any thoughts or internal chatter to be there without judgment, trusting that you do not have to follow what is screaming for your attention. The quickest way to bring yourself back to center is to refocus on your breathing. Allow yourself to be still. Now, from that place of stillness ask yourself these questions. What am I feeling? What am I judging? What am I attached to? What am I resisting? In what ways am I avoiding or over compensating? What or who is draining my energy, life force and vitality? What is my biggest fear? Allow the answers to emerge. Trust the information you are hearing and know that you are not alone.
Are you ready to give up pretending you can do it all, playing lone ranger, superman or wonder woman? Are you ready to admit you are giving from an empty well and this is not working? Are you ready to declare that you matter and what you want in life matters? From the information and insight you received in your reflection I invite you to take the next step.
