‘Go with the flow’ and flexibility appear to be the way. Many changes are happening as people wake up to what’s real. Things that seemed important before feel less important now while other things that weren’t on the radar are now taking up space.
These changes manifest in physical, emotional and spiritual ways. It takes time to integrate and anchor, and some days can be more challenging than others. Practical ways to help integrate and anchor the new are through yoga and meditation. That’s what they all say, right? Well, yes indeed, and it’s true. I have been doing yoga daily, even if all I can squeeze in is a simple 5 minute child’s pose. Taking a yoga class at your local studio can feel nurturing and healing. Sweat and stretches help release pent up energy and can assist with emotional and spiritual shifts, as well as healing.
Mediation is another way to integrate and anchor these new energies. Again, even if you only have a couple of minutes during the day, take the time to close your eyes, take a deep breath or two and bring your attention to the present moment. After all, that’s all we have.
Another useful way to anchor and integrate is to spend time with nature. Go for a hike or paddle on the river. When life feels out of control, nature can help ground us. If all this is a little too much, climb into bed with a cup of warm tea and get plenty of rest so that you can create an opening to receive the new. Now that the eclipse has happened, the new is coming in at exponential rates and for those of us who are extra sensitive to change, these tools can be very useful.
Spend time alone while creating environments where you feel supported by family and/or friends. Many are allowing their creative juices to flow, which often means 180 degree change from what once was. You might do something unexpected like quit a job or move to a new town. Whatever you are inspired to do, as long as it’s in alignment with your true self, take the plunge and jump off the cliff. These changes are likely to present challenges. That’s okay. Go for it. These challenges are part of growth and a whole lot better than living a life that’s not in alignment with who you are.
