"It's Time To Get Unstuck"
Sometimes we just need an outside perspective to guide us to the answer we've been looking for, or a loving nudge in the right direction. And other times, maybe we just need a gentle light shone on a truth we've been keeping in the shadows. But probably more often than not - all we need is a safe place to just BE, and NOT have all the answers. Odds are, it's some combination of all of the above - and I think my signature program You Are Your Own Miracle (YAYOM) provides that quite beautifully. So keep reading if you want to learn more, or just get a good dose of love from me on this Serene Sunday. :) ~~~ I had a lovely chat with my sister this week, and her brilliant words unlocked a really intriguing question for me:
"Is being "stuck" even real??? Like... are we really stuck, or do we just not want to be where we are right now?"
I mean... if all suffering exists, because we refuse to accept what is - then maybe all stuckness exists because we refuse to BE WITH what is.
Maybe you're stumped on a business matter or your career. Maybe you have a new lease on life and a million good ideas but don't know where to start. Maybe you have some VERY big feelings like anger, grief, sadness or deep disappointment and you don't know what to do with them. Maybe it's time for a certain chapter in your life to come to an end and you're not quite sure how to do that. But I wonder what would happen if we tried NOT doing anything. Just... surrender, acceptance, and faith - and that's it.
I realized that the Universe has been saying pretty loudly lately that, SOMETIMES THE WAY OUT, IS IN.
And as uncomfortable as it is to be in these painful, sticky, sad or frustrating moments - I'm pretty sure it's worth it, and maybe the only way through it all anyway. That doesn't mean we have to drown in our sorrows, but we can certainly honor them. We can show reverence for our experiences, our feelings, and our circumstances without being married to them.
And I know that can feel really hard and maybe even isolating. So I wanted you to know that if you're feeling similarly at all - you're not alone.
I for sure had been resisting the choice of surrender/faith/acceptance and "staying with" for a LONG time. But it got to a point where it seemed like the only remaining option really, so I figured: why not? And to be honest - it's totally working! :)
The gift we gain by practicing this act of "staying with"... the benefit we get, by just feeling into the discomfort 1% more than we used to - is that we get to know ourselves a little better - and that's actually kinda fun!
Because by knowing ourselves- that's how we solve all our perceived problems. That's how we learn to lighten up and know exactly what to do to take care of ourselves in any given moment.
Yes - like any of this work, it takes practice. But it IS doable. And you don't have to do it alone. I'm right here and so is the rest of the YAYOM PHOENIX FAMILY CREW!
Whatever you come to the table with - we will approach it with love, kindness, patience, compassion, mindfulness and hope. And we WILL figure out what to do next.
