Spring is certainly upon us, and with the days here starting to really warm up, more sunshine and footy finals upon us, it gives us that small ray of hope in a relatively grim view from lockdowns on the East coast.
And while I am certainly not going to sit here and tell you whether you should or shouldn’t be getting a J A B, I am going to suggest to make sure you listen to your heart…
I mean REALLY listen…
There is so much noise, so much conflict and fear being thrust on us at the moment (media, news, environment etc) that it can be almost impossible to actual hear yourself think through all this.
Fear, anxiety and stress all comes from a place of weakness. When you are not aligning with your core values, anxiety and stress are the indicators your body gives you, the ‘signs’ if you will that something is off.
I spent all last week with my coaches struggling with this exact issue. With so much going on, it is so easy for us to be knocked off course and end up wandering around the wilderness, not on our true path at all.
So my wish for you, is stop… take stock of where you have found yourself and get centred again.
Whether it may be mediation, reflection, prayer, exercise, reading… whatever form it takes for you to clear your mind of the rubbish and be back in a place that you can really listen to your heart.
Your core beliefs.
Suddenly you will start to hear them again, and once you are back on that path, there is a peace, a calmness…
Even though the storm is raging outside, it is like you are now in the eye of the storm. It is here you will truly hear what you need to do, what you are being called to do. Then do that, whichever choice it is, that is your ‘right’ one.
Its not my right choice, or your partner’s right choice, or even your children’s or parent’s ‘right’ choice… but yours.
As Rudyard Kipling wrote in his poem IF –
“If you can keep you head when all around you are losing theirs, and blaming it on you…”
This is the true meaning of power, of strength.
But first, we must really listen to our core beliefs, it all starts at our centre.
