Change is affecting every area of life
It is more than obvious that our world is going through a major upheaval that is touching every aspect of our lives. For some time now we have witnessed crises, breakdown of old systems and revolutionary thoughts, feelings and in some places chaotic action. As difficult as it is to move through a time like this, breakdown and clearing out of the old is always a necessary part of change.
Even though we may be aware of that, it is hard to live through the destruction of what we have known, trusted, counted on, and believed in. And the promise of a better, more sustainable future may not do a lot for the doubt, uncertainty, confusion, stress, fear and anxiety that can accompany deep change.
Global and individual change
Just as the global arena is being affected by trans-formative currents so are we as individuals. Obviously the cultural shifts ripple out to affect our lives, but in addition we all have areas of ourselves (lives) that periodically call out for transformation.
When we are up against the need for change‚ especially big or unwanted change, it is only natural to feel pressure, stress and many other feelings such as those mentioned above.
When we view ourselves and our lives through the lens of energy we can receive helpful clues as to what is being triggered within us and more importantly it becomes clearer how to address change more gracefully.
Some general questions that help begin adaptation to stress and change
What is being challenged in my life right now?
What patterns are there within that this my situation or relationship that may be past their sell by date? E. G. Are there ways that I have been interacting, putting up with, allowing, responding negatively, holding myself back, fearful of entering a new phase/position or resisting needed shifts in some area of my life?
What holds me back from accepting this or any other change in my life?
Bringing more consciousness to times of transition can help smooth the way. Understanding and managing energy can help further facilitate change by reducing resistance and harnessing the power of consciousness more positively influence the flow of our lives.
