Like the tides of an ocean, life ebbs and flows. Sometimes everything is moving forward, flowing effortlessly, you’re getting things done, and feeling great. And then an ebb appears, maybe business slows down and the calls aren’t coming in, and you think, “Omg, what happened? What went wrong?” Before you launch into full-blown panic mode, take a deep breath, and follow these guidelines…
1- Trust. Life will always ebb and flow. Think of the tides, if they flowed all the time, there would be floods. It’s necessary to have that ebb time. If you go into panic, you set yourself up for a very rough time. Start with trust, trusting that everything is working out in your highest and best good and when the time is right, things will flow again. When you stay in the energy of trust, you are open to the guidance that is always available to you. Your negative ego would love for you to go into fear and doubt but all that’ll do is make the ebb that much more traumatic, and potentially longer.
2- Recharge. Sometimes an ebb occurs because you’re running on empty and need to recharge your batteries. Use this time for self-care and nurturing. Where have you been ignoring your health, and how can you support yourself better? Take the time to be and allow yourself the downtime and space to regenerate. Again- if you panic and try to do, you miss the point, and prolong the ebb. Once you’ve recharged, then:
3- Re-evaluate. Is what you’re doing working? Do you need to switch things up and make changes? Are you supporting yourself in all ways? Maybe you need to change some faulty beliefs, feelings or attitudes. Look at what is working to augment that, and what isn’t to change it.
4- Re-commit. Focus on the end goal. What is it you want? Are you showing up fully in service of that goal, or are you allowing yourself to be distracted? How do you want to feel when you have the goal? Feel that feeling now, don’t wait. Feelings are the markers for what’s going on internally. If you focus on your goal but feel scared or angry, that fear and anger is actually what’s creating the outcome, hindering it from matching what you’re wanting. Work on raising your emotional state and heal where you are stuck in the dark.
5- Trust. Again. In yourself, in the work you’ve done. It begins and ends with trust. Center yourself, and breathe. The Universe is cheering you on, wanting you to have the thing you want, so allow it, co-create it, and then receive it. You’ve got this.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
