Change can feel incredibly uncomfortable (TRUST!)
A few words about the process of change.
Always before a huge shift there’s turbulence, there’s always a period of incredibly challenging energies going on within you, a lot of anxiousness and the uncomfortable feeling of looming change.
Your world is shaking and it’s easy to let the mind begin to ruminate and assume things that may not even be true, so remember that 99,9% of the time it’s just ‘mind-stuff’/unfounded fears.
And even if the change is ultimately for the better, it can be very uncomfortable to go through the process as you feel totally clueless of what’s to come next, so you also then feel pretty powerless as well.
You’re tired, exhausted even, and nothing seems to happen and you feel stuck, stagnated and scared,
Yet you can very strongly sense that something is changing, and since your (ego) mind is in the Unknown, its control-mechanism kicks in and that’s when all the anxiety starts to creep in.
Do what you feel you need to do that will get you a sense of peace, but also know that it’s not really you who wants to get control of the turbulence that is happening within you, it’s the small, limited self.
IT is scared, not you. It is fearful, anxious, and worried. Not YOU. Not the real you.
The ego always manifests fear, worry, anxiety and tenseness, your true self never does that! It always brings peace.
Here’s two questions you can ask yourself that will help you bring yourself back into alignment;
- What is my ego/small self telling me about my ability to _______?
(Get through or overcome something/succeed or achieve something, or whatever it may be that you’re struggling with right now that is in the process of change.)
- What is God, or my soul/true self, telling me about my ability to _______?
And then listen to that voice instead!
When you feel a sense of relief and peace, then go about and also do the necessary work on releasing the limiting and anxiety-inducing beliefs of the small self.
Here’s an article that can be helpful to you: “Stalk Your Fear“.
You can also use affirmations and positive imagination to help shift your perception of the turbulence that you’re currently experiencing.
Tell yourself that the turbulence is actually a positive sign of you taking off!
Taking off like a rocket! 🚀
“All this turbulence that I’m experiencing right now is just me taking off! Yes, that’s what this means!” (That’s the meaning you choose to give it).
And in that process, of course you have no control in the lift-off phase – none!
You can just let your world shake and create a lot of turbulence, but all you can do at this point is to wait it out, wait for the dust to settle so to speak,
So the only logical things is to relax and let go (and your mind can more easily accept logic).
Release the anxiety, and surrender to the lift-off process.
This stage is completely out of your hands.
And remember also this, that before expansion of any kind, there’s always contraction first. Always.
The contraction phase is where you feel anxious and tense, a little bit like having butterflies in your stomach, but not in the good way.
You know what I’m talking about? I’m sure you can relate.
We all go through these phases, and especially when something big is about to happen – in the best way, when the change is for the better!
Remember; “It is always darkest before the dawn”.
Here’s a link to some of my articles that can be helpful to you:
Nothing ‘bad’ is happening, only change is happening, and it’s for the better.
It’s only your mind that ‘thinks’ something undesirable is around the corner because it’s not in control.
And what is happening is outside if its scope to even understand.
Here’s other articles that can be helpful to you as well:
Part of any transformational process is the process of change;
When you shift from one level of consciousness to the next (you go higher), so yes, it can be incredibly uncomfortable because an old aspect or part of yourself will be left behind.
So let it happen, and rejoice in the knowing that something good is about to happen.
Something good, or better, than what you have had or experienced before!
So allow the take-off to take place, allow the turbulence, let things shake for a bit, and do what you can to relax so that you can fully surrender to the process.
Here’s more articles that came to mind that can be helpful to you as well:
Imagine what the astronauts experience while in take-off and adopt their mentality by realizing that at this point, there’s nothing you can do but to sit back and allow the process to happen as it will.
Here’s a Teleclass where I speak about the process of spiritual chemicalization that will be helpful to you as well:
“Spiritual Chemicalization” (38 min.)
Declare your independence from the circumstances of your life and spend your time and energy on inner conversations about what’s possible and not on what the limited self is telling you.
I also invite you to write a love-letter to yourself!
A letter from your future self, say a year from now.
Looking back from that perspective, from having all the wisdom you have a year from now, all the insight you have gained, what would you say to yourself?
How would you encourage yourself, now that you know how it all worked out for the best?
Here’s an example of what you could write in the letter:
I remember when you struggled a year ago, how scared you were, how difficult things were, and it makes me so happy to see what became of you from all that.
I cherish you for how you handled_________ and _________.
The most profound teaching you gained from the struggles was ________ and ________ and I am so proud of you for that!
I remember when you decided to _________ and how that made you feel so aligned!
I also remember how empowered you felt when you _________.
How special that moment was!
I think that was the most beautiful thing you have ever done for yourself and I am so happy that you did.
Look at you now!
I am so grateful that you never gave up, even when there certainly were times when you almost did, yet you persevered and you believed in me.
You believed in me!
Because of what you did, and how you grew from your struggles and tribulations, I am who and what I am today.
I am __________ because of how you chose to handle the difficult times you had a year ago.
Life has changed so much since then, and I am so grateful.
I love you so, so much.”
