I know you’re searching for some sort of truth and anything to grab on to. The world feels slippery right now. The extreme in emotion by so many, and the hyper focus on anything that creates distraction, can be overwhelming to feel and witness.
I wanted to offer some perspective on the current state of emotions and ways to navigate through this huge influx of energy we are seeing from others right now, or maybe experiencing ourselves.
This is offered with love and if you are in need of support please reach out to someone whom you trust and can offer care, compassion, and support in a way you can receive.
You are Not Alone.
You are not alone in the crazy, in the desperate, in the grasping for anything that offers safety and stability. Finding ways to manage becomes more challenging as we are all so unique in how we manifest our discomfort.
Understand the Foundation.
Whatever it is that you fundamentally believe to be true, you seek out evidence and invite experiences, consciously and subconsciously, to support and validate your beliefs. With how information is widely spread and instant, it is not difficult to find others that support your belief system. And despite validation not equaling truth, it further cements what it is we are trying to accomplish.
When we are in a reactive and highly emotional state we become super attractors for meeting our expectations, so we can then say, “See, I told you.” Whatever it is we are thinking, those thoughts become words, and those words become actions, and those actions become beliefs, and our beliefs become our reality.
Beliefs Become Our Reality.
Our belief systems are our safety net. They keep us in a space of comfort and give us, even falsely, a feeling of what’s right. We grip to these systems tightly because we don’t ever want to believe that we were once wrong in our previous belief systems. Even when our belief systems may have changed, or no longer feel right, we still hang on because it’s safe.
To think we would risk changing our whole reality because we want to change our foundational beliefs is terrifying. It means we have to face who we once were, and our ego will always resist.
Challenge Your Belief Systems.
Your structure can change. You are allowed to change your mind, your path, and your practices. Risk creates extreme growth and we are able to evolve and be deeply present in our bodies. You can take radical responsibility and shift your focus to take charge of your current and future realities. Trust your quest for change and growth. Trust your intuition and seek deeply within for answers, while avoiding the traps of constant outward validation. Outside voices are loud, confusing, and destructive. If something doesn’t feel right, move on. It’s healthy to feel uncomfortable when being challenged, lean into this feeling. Learn to discern between being challenged and your gut and intuition telling you it’s time to go.
Stay in Your Lane.
We are not in a competition for sanctity and we are not responsible for changing others minds. If you are in a new phase in your life and rapidly searching, growing, and evolving, then you are exactly where YOU need to be. It is not your job to shout this on social media platforms or tell others to “wake up” to their higher self or the world around them. Speak YOUR truth, your experience, and share your testimony. You cannot reach others through accusation, shouting, or constant pushing of your belief systems. This will fall on deaf ears and agitate instead of accomplish what you intended.
Meet others where they are without judgement as you would expect them to do for you. You are unique in your journey and your search for enlightenment and healing. What is working for you may not work for others.
Respect others foundational beliefs and recognize yours, AS YOURS, and that they do not need to be everyone else’s.
What are you doing in your community to spread your message? What are you doing in your life to live your message? If you are constantly trying to challenge and negatively engage within platforms, like social media, instead of doing the work and simply sharing your testimony, ask yourself why. What are you trying to accomplish and who are you trying to reach?
Your voice is important. It’s necessary. It’s needed. It’s also how you use that voice that reaches those that need to hear it.
If you are exhausted in your current experience, I see you. The power is yours to take back, shift, and make change. Rewrite your narrative. Exercise new belief systems. This is growth and maturity, and will create the reality you desire.
You are loved,
