This is a reminder that you are so blessed with the body and mind that you have today! By accepting who we are, we become more aware of what (or whom) may be limiting our path to self growth. We are able to see where we need to make the right changes.
Letting go of needing to control
When we fall asleep at night, we are letting go and let our mind/bodies relax into sleep. This is also fitting for most circumstances in life - sometimes we just need to trust and let go of the need to control in situations. When we let go of control, our mind and body is able to experience the healing that it needs.
The way out, is in
Sometimes we may look for reasons why we can’t make changes that we know will be good for us, or we may look for reasons why we just can’t let go of our fears, resentments, negative thoughts, etc. Not everyone may resonate with that at this moment in time of reading, but still, one of the greatest challenges is going inward and really getting to know ourselves. Sometimes this can include healing certain emotions that could be due to past experiences or trauma. In this vulnerable but transformative action, we can ask ourselves questions such as, "How am I really doing? What are my triggers? What am I like when I am being triggered? What can I do to help myself during those moments of being triggered?" In time, the more we get to know ourselves and reflect on where we are and how we want to feel, the closer we get to inner and outer healing.
Change the way you look at things
By changing our perspectives, we’re looking at the usual but with a fresh set of eyes. Sometimes, we may even notice that some challenges or obstacles we’ve encountered were created within ourselves. It is a humbling but maturing process.
Retrain your way of thinking
We have molded our way of thinking by our experiences in life, what we’ve been taught throughout the years, and what we’ve gotten used to. Like an onion, we need to peel back these layers that include our fears, self destructive thoughts or negative ways of thinking so that we can get to the core of our being. Replace these layers with new layers; the kind that will uplift the soul with encouragement to be our highest, greatest good.
Trust your inner teacher
By peeling back these layers we can get to the core of our being, where our soul and inner self lie. Our soul wants to be heard, we just need to listen. We can learn from several books, teachers, gurus, but at the end of the day our inner teacher knows what’s best for us.
