You are meant to be free; you were born to experience joy. Your life is available to you now. You do not need to wait another minute to live it! I wonder if you know that, or did you forget somewhere along the way? Instead of joy do you sometimes feel weighed down and disconnected from the life you know is waiting but is always just out of reach?
I sometimes do, so I’ve learned how to lift the weight and reconnect.
I’ve learned that negative thoughts expressed over and over create limiting beliefs, painful emotions and protective behaviours. Thinking a negative thought often enough makes it feel true and leads to feeling stuck, unsure and blocked from the life we desire.
This creates a spirit-crushing belief that sounds like this. “There must be something wrong with me, I’m obviously not good enough.” Feel the heart-breaking energy in that. I’ve said this internally many times. It’s not true though and can be changed!
I believe in the healing power of transforming negativity into life-affirming energy we can harness to create our life anew, and we don’t have to go far to draw the ragged strands of self back in.
There is one place that is always available, free for all, with an abundant supply of nourishment. A healing place we can go to, to reconnect with our truest, deepest self. A wondrous place we can easily step into to replenish from root to tip. Just as a tree spreads its roots far and deep to draw in the water and the sap of life from the depths of the Earth, so can we. All we need do is step outside and be in nature. Really be in nature. Bringing all our senses to the experience. Allowing ourselves to notice just how connected we are to this Earth.
We are a part of nature. Not apart. Although it may feel like it in this fast-paced world we live in.
Go for a walk, be in your garden, run on the beach, listen to the sounds all around, feel the breeze, the rain, the sun. Breath in deep and allow the unconditional, steady, loving presence of nature fill you up and restore you to you.
This is what we many forgot and is what many of us are now remembering. We are all deeply connected to this Earth. Recalling this takes nothing more than getting outside and breathing. Breathe in the oxygen that the green things have breathed out. Breathe out the carbon dioxide the green things need. Breathe in inspiration from nature, breath out what is no longer needed.
Breathe in new life, ideas of a future yet to be created, breath out the old, stale, heavy baggage of the past. And who knows? You may feel inspired take a teensy step into the new as you connect to and remember you are deeply and completely enough just as you are.
I’m on the path with you.
