To say that I like to get down and dirty is an understatement. I’m all for peeling back layers, getting cozy with my shadow self and really diving into the depths of my darker side – ego, limiting beliefs and emotional blocks.
Why? Because it leads to such powerful shifts causing me to crack open + connect to life. Those dark journeys lead to bliss.
The problem though, is that it’s not always a smooth ride with clearly mapped directions when I’m in that self-enquiry, explorative mode. Often, I’m feeling my way through the dark, trying to ‘figure’ it out.
My desire to have that potent awareness that delivers juicy, transformative moments sometimes gets in my way. I want it so bad – to feel the flow of life, to ease through each day with inspiration and insight – that my love for it mutates into this overly controlled experience.
I get stuck. I hit that metaphorical brick wall that we all know too well. I’m no longer deep-diving or flowing with life. I’m somewhere in-between. Limbo. No-(wo)man’s land. My version of hell.
What do I do to get unstuck? Four, very simple things.
- I get some energy work done. A healing light session, a Reiki session, kinesiology, I do an EFT session. Tried and tested methods that I know open the floodgates for me.
- I move, I breathe, I bend, I flex. Yoga is my lifeblood. It’s what saves me, every time. It helps me redefine ‘exploration’ as I use my body to navigate through life.
- I meditate. Daily. Devoted. Stillness.
- I invoke the child. We all have an inner child (and maybe a child in our life we can connect with). I call on that child-like energy to really shake things up. Play. Adventure. Laughter. Sunshine. Silliness.
