The Energy of Reorganization
"THINGS ARE ALWAYS WORKING OUT FOR ME, TOWARD MY BEST LIFE, IN FAVOR OF EVERYTHING I WANT, THIS IS ALL PART OF IT."
Can you offer that to yourself when things feel like they suck? When it hurts, when you’re stressed beyond capacity, when you’re afraid, when you’re confused?
That was a snippet from my journal, actually. Let's talk about the ENERGY of REORGANIZATION.
Damn if the last couple of weeks haven't shaken everything up. Are you feeling jolted, jarred, overwhelmed? What has come to light for you recently? What are you becoming aware of now? We're closing a huge cycle of change to enter into a new paradigm.
Regardless of when you read this, it will serve you. These are timeless principles and common experiences.
THE GREAT SHAKE-UP
You know those times in your life when you're like WTF is going on?! Suddenly things are falling apart, changing, coming undone, shocking you, confusing you. And then you start to think:
"Something bad is happening. Why me? I don't want this. I don't understand. I don't know what to do. Make it stop. I want to run and hide. I can't handle this."
And on it goes. Can you relate?
REORGANIZATION IS NOT COMFORTABLE
It can be unsettling, unnerving, sometimes even devastating.
We label it as "wrong."
We say, "I didn't see this coming."
It's completely normal and appropriate to feel these ways, to recoil. Aspects of our humanness don't like change and are resistant to letting go.
But in order for things to evolve, they must change.
What you experience is a sense of something new, different and unfamiliar taking place. But don't forget that energy is not created nor destroyed- it's just reorganized into something that seems to be new. So even if things feel wildly different and unfamiliar, nothing is actually new, just reconfigured and reborn.
THE ONLY REAL ANSWER IS YOUR OWN KNOWING AND TRUST
Here's part of what I journaled about it today. It may help you...
"Confusion is the readjustment to change. It’s like those few seconds when your eyes adjust to the light after being in the dark. Eventually you see clearly, but for a period of time, it’s hard to make out where you are or what’s happening. That’s the energy I’ve been in. I’m still adjusting to the light.
It’s been extremely unsettling, unnerving. But none of it is wrong. I forgot to have faith. I forgot to trust. I got caught by the spear of fear and paranoia and panic. I got triggered into a web of anxiety, seemingly so real, but just a mess of things I needed to walk out of. And here I am, emerging.
I am learning, I am on my side, I’m walking the path. I’m staying focused. I do my best to steady myself. I weather the turbulence. I stay focused on what I know is ahead on my path: everything I’ve asked for, everything I want, this is ALL PART OF IT.
Don’t forget it is always working out for you. When you feel like shit, just know it’s things rearranging, it’s the divine orchestrating force. It doesn’t feel good necessarily because there is an unraveling, a letting go, a growth and reemerging. But it is ALL good. Trust in your visions for yourself. Trust in what you KNOW for yourself. Don’t EVER lose sight of what’s in your heart, of your soul’s desires. The discomfort is the human self-adjusting to the shifts; it’s the upleveling, the changing. The physical form feels it on every level. Don’t be afraid of it. Let yourself feel it.
I really CAN trust myself, always.
I’m staying focus on what I want."
