Growth 🌱

Growth and healing go hand in hand. The thing about growth is that it’s not always easy. Most of the time its messy, overwhelming, heartbreaking and incredibly transforming. But that’s what makes it growth. Because it has the ability to push you so far out of your comfort zone that whichever direction you go, you are well and truly growing and most importantly expanding! It takes alot of strength and courage to be able to be faced with a choice between staying within your comfort zone… or going the path of growth and choosing the latter.

Growth does not always look like picking up the pieces and putting yourself back together. Sometimes growth is shattering your whole being in order to rebuild yourself into the newest and truest version of you, you could be.

And for all those that think or feel like they are alone on their journey, just know that you are not the only ones! Sometimes we are made to go through certain experiences on our own, we are put in situations where we are forced to go inwards rather than to seek external help. What we don’t realise is that we all have the answers that we are seeking within ourselves. And the path of loneliness sometimes has to be taken in order to become aware of the answers that lie within us. To be focussed on ourselves enough to notice what it is that we are meant to learn and how to build ourselves back up!

Uncomfortable situations are often uncomfortable because they have hit a soft spot within us that makes us feel that certain sense of discomfort. Growth teaches us strength! It teaches us resilience and to get back up and keep going. It allows ourselves to build the mental, physical and especially emotional stamina to be able to go through life with ease and flow, rather than pain and struggle. What we are being made to re-learn or re-evaluate is that we do not have to learn through struggle. It is a choice most of the time. And most of the time we choose to struggle because that is what we know and what we have been taught. But what if a simple change in our perception could allow us to flow through life with a certain sense of ease and comfort? Why not?! Who says we need to struggle. It all comes down to the way you look at life. A situation is a situation. It is ultimately our choice how we choose to react or respond to it. So we have a choice here. Either feel a negative emotion… or a positive one! This skill takes some practice, but oh how wonderful would it be to go through all of life’s many obstacles and experiences with ease? That is just the icing on the cake!

So growth. It all comes down to choice! Choose growth. Choose to flow through your growth with ease. Be open to the changes, for change is ALWAYS positive… even when it feels uncomfortable at the time. Change is what stimulates the growth. If we were to stay stuck, there would come a point where you may feel either suffocated or wanting to burst. So you could choose to change now, or wait for that bursting feeling. Either way change and growth are inevitable. So might as well go along with it, rather than resist. Because resistance is quite frankly a waste of time. Yes, sometimes resistance teaches us how to let go of control, but if we can become aware of the resistance within us, we can start to work on it. Work on creating more of a flow, allowing the blocks within us to fade away, piece by piece.

And growth does not always have to mean picking up a healthy routine or going to all your yoga classes. Sometimes growth is in the not eating healthy, not sleeping early and not taking care of ourselves. Sometimes it takes reaching a certain point to get to a space where the realisations come tumbling in and the love can flow through you effortlessly so that you can pick yourself up.

So however it goes, just know that you are doing the best you can do! Remind yourself of your courage and strength. Offer the feelings of pride and accomplishment for yourself. Because you are on a great path of healing. One few choose to take. Honour it, don’t judge it and most importantly, allow it.

Lots and lots of Love ❤

When things don’t go our way….

Hmmm what if we lived in a world where everything we wanted and planned for came into fruition. What if things were certain… and what if the unknown was known. Some would say that would be ideal, but would it not get mundane? Where is the growth? How would we move forward with our lives, learn and grow? 

We do not live in a world where things go to plan, are certain or completely known to us. Absolutely anything can happen and no matter how much we try to prepare for things, we are treading unknown waters. However… we are adaptive creatures and when we are tested, our true strengths and abilities to deal with the situations come to light. We grow and evolve, expand and learn. We get creative, we unleash our inner power, and somehow we manage to pull through! That is the beauty of the world we live in, and that is the beauty of us, no matter how daunting it may sometimes feel to be living in it. 

We are minuscule beings, living on a beautifully magnificent rock (still tiny!) that we call Earth, in a unimaginably vast body of space. Now think… how inconsequential we truly are in the grand scheme of literally everything! Yet, we have our own lives, and our own ups and downs to deal with. So when things do not go our way, see them as blessings rather than “why is this happening to me!!!” or “What did I ever do to deserve this”. Think of a bigger picture, one in which you don’t know what lies ahead and why your situation didn’t workout, but you know that you are guided by forces that are leading you to greatness. It is all about perspective. I like to see it as a blessing because you are being guided towards something far FAR greater than you could possibly imagine!!! Something so beautiful, so out of this world that if you had the choice you would choose this in a heart beat, over what you wanted and planned for that didn’t work out. 

Although… you HAVE to let go. You have to let go of what didn’t work out and exercise gratitude. Be grateful that you weren’t led down a path that was not in your best interest. And believe me we try to control and control, but at the end of the day, we can’t see the future, so we really don’t know what is best for us. Let the universe guide you. Let go of what didn’t work out, but by all means feel your emotions. Feel upset, feel lost, feel uncertain and feel the “what’s next?”. But then… you feel gratitude. “Thank you for how things turned out, I know that this is happening for my best/highest good and I look forward to even better coming into fruition FOR me”. And then give yourself space to allow the fabulous blessings to come into your reality. Allow them to flow to you, through you and for you. It’s a beautiful thing. And when you let go, you feel free. And freedom is what so many of us search for, yet never seem to find. Because it can’t be found outside of ourselves, it comes from within. The decision is up to you! You choose to let go, you choose to be grateful and you choose to flow. And the reward that comes with that is abundance. Abundance of blessings. For when you let go of what you ‘thought’ was best for you, you create space for what is actually best for you. And let it guide you and lead you to the truest and most authentic version that you could possibly be. Miracles start to happen. And then you look back and say to yourself… “my gosh! Im so happy that that thing didn’t work out, for if it did… I wouldn’t have all of this!!!” 

It definitely is a choice. So just trust. Trust that better things are on their way to you and be patient, allowing them to arrive to you. You are guided, you are loved and you are supported always. Live each day in the present moment and life will start to get really really good. 

Sending all of you a ton of warmth, love and good wishes!
