Mindful Monday: Be Gentle With Yourself

Good morning, Lightworkers!

Life can be a lot of pressure sometimes, huh? I was just having a conversation with a friend the other night about how scary and confusing it can be when you finally realize that you have control over everything and nothing at the same time. Of course, if you have a big calling and a bold spirit, it’s important to prioritize your values, name your goals, and begin taking the necessary steps to manifest your deepest desires into existence. And even then, sometimes it’s only in retrospect that we’re able to truly feel our power. Hindsight is 20/20 because we naturally act in the heat of the moment until we condition ourselves otherwise. It’s hard to detach from the strong emotional connection we feel when the storm lasts a wee bit longer than what the forecast called for.

Remember from last week that there is no either/or. If you’re a believer in manifestation and the very real power of the law of attraction, you might feel pressured to force things and stick to a rigid game plan. I used to do this, and it’s easy to fall into a trap of your own expectations: “If it’s on my vision board, IT IS HAPPENING!” But be gentle with yourselves, sweet souls. You don’t have to orchestrate every move or plan out precisely what needs to happen and by when. And likewise, life won’t move you if you sit idly and wait for everything to fall into place. The beauty in this is that you don’t have to have everything figured out to move forward. Know your worth, have a vision, and do a behavior check every once in awhile to make sure that the way you’re living is propelling you closer and closer to your divine purpose. The pathway might be broken, the signs might be unclear, and A, B, and C might not be in your back pocket as quickly as you had hoped, but you’re being led (and maybe you’re even leading the way) toward exactly what you need. Watch with satisfaction how beautifully things unfold in your favor when you just let it be. Any unexpected gifts surface in your life recently after you’ve surrendered to a timing that’s not your own?
