Slowing Down Amidst the Rapid Change – Lessons that Will Catapult
Today’s post is about renewed perseverance and trust fused with the grace of steady and wise, discerning patience, release and allowance. Phew! That’s a mouthful, but let’s break it down into bite-sized morsels for better absorption.
Perseverance to see what we have set forth in motion through, regardless of what things seem like.
Trust to keep believing and knowing that the goal is near.
Grace to be in your divinity.
Steadiness to take time to reflect, keep balanced, make calculated moves with little to no effort and in deliberate steps – think of the tortoise.
Wise discernment to understand and know which choices best honor you in every experience you engage in.
Releases of all old baggage once and for all that no longer serves you and in letting go of old structures, patterns, beliefs, and ways of doing things.
Allowance in vulnerably embracing and asking for help from friends, loved ones, your spirit guides, the angels, elementals, the Universe, etc. and letting go of control in order to receive that which you ask for in a more appropriately aligned way that matches the new you you are becoming.
A lesson I am having to learn every day with some very loud and clear nudges. I know like many, I have experienced the consistent drive regardless of the bumps in the road that can in the moment feel completely defeating. Yet, it’s time to change the way we have been operating and for some that may be more extreme than for others, especially in reference to the types of messages we receive to get our attention. Yet things ARE really shifting. I’m seeing this rapid change over the last couple of months and I can see how my intentions are starting to manifest. So its not the time to throw in the towel even when we get hit over the head with something that can feel so discouraging, as it is reminder to us not to take with us anything old and to ensure we continue the journey anew. With the right adjustments we will leap ahead even though the steps may “seem” slower in the moment. Don’t get caught up in the details and the illusion. We cannot bring the old into what is unfolding collectively. We are so close and we are not alone in this.
I had recently gone through a sort of physical breakdown of adjustments that needed my attention and tending to, in bringing forth my last remnants of biggest challenges in life, loud and clear. And once I started to embrace the understanding of this and shifted perspective, along with getting more grounded and doing supportive things energetically, things instantly did start to shift my experience. Then came the next hurdle, or remnants of those things not quite finished, with bigger messages that would definitely be attention grabbers, which happened recently with major allergies I’ve never had in the mornings (that I finally have a handle on) and then yesterday in falling off a stool and having what appears to be a foot fracture. Accident? Of course not. An ingeniously devised mechanism of knowing how to click the light bulb on for me – a way to make myself stop.
As always, I find the message in what takes place. Not everyone has to have extreme things, but being that I’ve been an extremist, the only way my essence knows to get my attention and stop me, is to literally stop me! So while I could have remained on the floor when I fell (which I did for a few minutes of tears and pain) in discouragement and given up, I got up and said I understand. Thank you for loving me enough to help me see the way. If pain is embraced, it holds its polarity of joy for you to experience. I’m currently working on naturally healing this fracture and know the time in doing so will be beneficial to revamp some things and take a step back.
So while this may be a very challenging period, I remain optimistic and positive that the things I’ve energetically focused on are coming to be and are actually manifesting, so I have this downtime to make the refinements, take care of myself and be taken care of -calculatingly pull back the reins just a bit, before I get ready to take off. It kind of reminds me of the movie Sea Biscuit (yes, here comes another horse story) and the amazing heart of that little horse who loved to get wind of the disbelief and obstacles that seemed insurmountable (even with a fractured leg) and once he embraced that spirit of nothing can stop me even though my legs may be shorter and it seems physically impossible, the courage of my heart and the love for running free will get me where I want to be – and I’ll do it on my terms and as a whole being with all of my parts in tact and operating authentically. This fracture is but a temporary resting point to get deeper in touch and come back even stronger, as well as let things catch up with how fast I was going so that divine timing can unfold.
I’d like to leave you with these very inspiring quotes to help support any disillusionment, discouragement or dismay you may be experiencing. I know how that feels and have been there many times. What I’ve learned is to turn the painful energy into fuel for my passionate fire and continue to believe no matter what things “appear” to be or what anyone else says. I see the bigger picture, not just the pieces and I know there are no limitations unless I believe so. What could be grim to one, is an opportunity in the making for another. The choice is yours to lovingly make.

Trust in yourself, your dream and spirit.” Sarah Ban Breathnach
