Often, we don't recognize our own patterns or limitations until something big triggers our awareness. Change is one of the very great teachers of life. It shows us what we are still holding onto in life that we may not have realized.
When the Universe sends endings or abrupt change, it is a way of redirecting your soul and consciousness to question what is really resonating and true for you. This may not be so easy to recognize in the moment, but in time you will come to see that you are being divinely guided.
Change is inevitable. In fact, it is one of the only things in life that we can count on to surely happen. Often, it does so just when you are getting comfortable or feeling that you have got things "under control". Like an earthquake rumbling about, change comes in and shakes the Earth from under your feet.
NOW ...this is the key moment to stop and pay attention to exactly how you respond. How do you react? Do you immediately run? Do you imagine the worst possible outcome? Do you act like nothing is happening and avoid it? Do you prepare yourself by taking cover, trusting that everything will be OK?
I guarantee that your reaction is the very same pattern you have in other areas of your life as well. This is a useful tool. Because if there is any area of your life in which you feel is out of balance, it is because there is a energetic pattern, or karmic block that lies there.
Now, let's imagine that change has come into your life to show you a new way of being. It has shook things up to awaken you. What you are holding onto holds onto you. Perception is everything. Shift your perception and you shift your reality.
Feel gratitude for each and every lesson (especially the most difficult ones), for each one is there to evolve and lift us higher, if and only if we let go of resistance and attachment to outcome. Embrace change and all that it offers :)
