Healing can only come to the mind of openness, receptivity and full acceptance. ‘Pulling the shutters down,’ closing off real possible, favourable, healthy outcomes -that could come our way – is not an option. We have within each of us a transformative, regenerative energy and we do need to participate with this. We do need to embrace its ‘magic’ if we are to improve our health – if we are to heal.
It’s OK to fall apart. It’s OK to get anxious over something that enters our lives in an irritable manner. It’s OK to lose our patience at what happens. It’s OK to lose our temper provided we can apply awareness to all these emotional states that course through our minds and learn from their presence, start to develop strategies to use them for ‘fuel’ for our onward, positive journey.
Adversity often sweeps into our lives uninvited and unwelcomed but that is no reason to react hastily against it without even listening to what it’s trying to say. It has made a presence in our lives and we must acknowledge this and learn its ‘lessons,’ what it is trying to say.
Never waste an opportunity. And in every crisis, sometimes buried deeply inside, lies an opportunity, a fresh potential that can lead us to a new beginning, a foothold into higher ground.
