Changing Times

Have you been feeling changes within yourself? Are you more sensitive to the injustices that are happening around you, speaking up more and surprising even yourself?

We are all becoming more aware, more in tune and there is no backing away. We are evolving and even those who aren’t consciously aware are feeling it too.

So how do we cope with these changes? It can be difficult however it is so important to know that it has to happen. Nothing can stay the same and like with any true healing, things often get worse before they get better.

The planet is sore, it has been raped and pillaged as humans have been too – we are all connected. Our mind and our thoughts are what will see us through. When we consciously really look at what goes on in our mind, it can be pretty amazing! Not only do we constantly give ourselves a hard time, we often give everyone around us a hard time, even people we don’t know.

Thoughts have energy, a very strong energy. If we always had the right thoughts we would all be healed! Easier said then done, but we have to start somewhere.

If you want to make a real difference in your life, start with your thoughts. Start consciously listening to what you’re saying to yourself. When you find it’s negative, stop, listen and if it’s about yourself, ask yourself if you really deserve this bashing? If you believe you do, then change – forgive yourself and change.

If it’s about a situation that’s happened with someone, ask yourself if there is anything positive you can do to change it, if there is, take action, if not, let It Go! You’d be surprised at how much damage we do to our health by hanging on to old wounds.

Once you get into the habit of reflecting on your thoughts and your reactions you’ll be surprised how much calmer your life will become. Take time out to think about you, as that’s where it all starts.

Yes others can say and do things that are upsetting, however it’s up to us as to how we react to that. Keep your own counsel, if someone is taking it out on you. Remember 9 times out of 10, what others say about you, it’s not about you – it’s about what they are going through.

In these times, building up our empathy and compassion towards others is extremely important. Most of the time we don’t really know what is going on for others, so just take a step back, and say to yourself ‘this is not about me’.

We are all connected, and as you work on yourself, it can be like a ‘domino effect’ on those around us. It requires effort and time, believe me though you will start to have a great relationship with yourself which in turn then attracts the right people into your life.

It’s not about becoming a doormat or always turning the other cheek. It’s about being calm and centred and giving ourselves time for the changes within, as well as in the world around us.
