I hear the craziest stories! My clients have had the widest range of situations, and sometimes it’s just extraordinary how they are even still on the planet with what they have had to face. As you’re reading this, you too have probably had extreme situations happen to you!
Much of the time the circumstance is not even about us, it’s something that someone else has done, said, or is experiencing. I have a very good friend that runs her own life very well, and many of the people she loves are experiencing debilitating life challenges. It gets to be exhausting when you’re worried about loved ones! The effects that worry, stress and anxiety have on the body are quite debilitating.
We all know and love people with addictions, ill health/dying/death, financial challenges and relationship problems. We invest our time, our words of encouragement, love, prayers, and money in the hope of making a difference. Doing that in too many ways can unfortunately deplete our own reserves and cause us to give too much to others at the expense of ourself.
We are all connected here on this earth, and at this moment there are so many people in the world experiencing hurricanes, earthquakes, famine, war, terrorism, etc. This goes out energetically to all, and it’s important to have tools in place to hold your own during this chaos.
When life gets completely out of hand it’s everything we can do to just keep our head above water.
In the Tools for Transformation there is a fix for this. The tool that is about moving your fear into your power is also about taking the challenges and moving into solutions. Here’s a sample for you!
You know that life requires an adjustment when you are:
∞ Feeling too emotional and not in control of your feelings.
o Apathetic, depressed, lacking energy and overly angry.
o Crying way too much.
o Getting overly snappy with those people we care about.
∞ Not able to manage a balance with eating, sleeping and physical activity.
o Not being able to get out of bed in the morning.
o Staying up too late. Waking in the night, not able to get back to sleep.
o Not able to muster energy for physical exercise.
o Eating too much, too little or just crappy nutrition less food.
∞ Experiencing too much ill health, pain and tightness in the body
o Dealing with unconscious, embarrassing compulsive behavior.
∞ Using drugs, alcohol, sex, smoking, food, etc. to be calm and distracted.
The good news is that you don’t have to live in this state.
Be compassionate with yourself and take this time to recognize that, this is where my life has
been parked for a while, and now it’s time to move on… with more conscious intention.
