What Your Soul Needs To Know About Your JourneyJul 11, 2022
Happy Tuesday! Your soul has another P. S. A. for you in hopes of helping you squeeze more joy along your journey!
It's about the JOURNEY, not the DESTINATION. 💫 ✈️
Any fellow "future trippers" out there? As in, you rob your present blind because you are way out into the future? 🙋♀️That is how I spent my 20's and 30's. It was less painful to be grounded and more comfortable to be "somewhere" else.
It's also about living in a BOTH, AND world. 🌎
What about this idea that there isn't room for grief and joy at the same time? In my experience, life and our experiences of life are not this or that, rather both, and. And when we can create space for both, life becomes uber fulfilling. Uncovering this principle completely transformed my life.
For example, if there was a deeply troubling issue happening in my role as a parent, instead of completely loosing myself in the trauma and uneasiness of the situation, I allowed myself to feel the depth of despair and grief and also made space for pockets of fun and joy all at once.
This practice afforded me massive levels of hope and resilience. And it is a practice for certain, because I would spend hours, days, and weeks feeling overwhelmed by heavy emotions.
Just because you have just learned of some tragic information does not mean that you have to wallow in it. There is nothing wrong with laughing or feeling joy in the midst of a shit storm.
My personal mantra is if you're not having fun and you aren't taking time to stop and smell the roses, you're doing something wrong!
If you can't enjoy the journey, even mid shit-storm, what's the point? Why wouldn't you want to dance 💃in the rain?
I also believe that you don't have to wait for that one thing to be fulfilled NOW.
This is actually how you attract more miracles into your life. Acting as if you already embody and feel as if you ARE and you HAVE the thing you desire. 🌀🌸
I believe in the notion that one of the 6 human needs is GROWTH/EXPANSION.
Humans are designed to expand and evolve on a mind, body, & spiritual level continually.
When humans are not evolving, they are dying/shrinking.
It can be easy to get caught up in the next iteration of your evolution and if you're not careful, you are so far ahead that you totally miss the journey and the moment before you.🤯😳😴
This moment is all we have.
Humans are obsessed with achieving the next thing, only to discover the desire and joy for said thing declines and then they are on to the next thing that will bring supposed FULFILLMENT.
I will be happy when x happens.
I can relax when x happens.
I will be complete when I achieve x.
I can breathe when x goes away.
The list goes on and on.
What is on your list? What are you postponing joy and FULFILLMENT for?
It is available NOW in this moment. If you are willing to access it.
There is a Zen quote that reminds me of this idea:
“Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.
After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.”
How can you acknowledge all of what life is offering up in this moment?
