Opening Havana Wellness Studio is such a delight- I love being able to do my best work online!
But change does not come without its challenges, right? No matter how well we take care of ourselves or how adaptive we think we are, change rocks our equilibrium. Even when we can foresee the outcome, we feel unbalanced and in the midst of change, we do what we can to maintain control- to “right the ship.”
Even when we know that we ultimately have no control and even as we tell our friend or client to “Just be…” and “Go with the flow…” when we are faced with change, chosen or not, for the good or out of necessity, we find ourselves fretting a wee bit.
Guess what? That’s normal!
So, what can you do? The most important thing you can do is accept those feelings of fear and anticipation as part and parcel to the process. Without it, the transition or, as I like to call it, the TRANSFORMATION can’t occur. Instead of riling against your fears, or telling yourself those thoughts of concern or worry are silly, try leaning in. Think of those moments as your emotional barometer. Just like pain or fever lets us know something is up with our bodies, our feelings of fear, worry and our need to find balance let us know change is afoot and YES! Things are about to be different! The routine is about to change, so our emotional barometer is guiding us to pay attention. When change is upon us, we can’t operate on automatic pilot. We have to disengage the cruise control for a bit.
In the midst of my change and anticipation- creating an online space for healing and education- I have been presented with new health challenges- not critical, not unmanageable, but certainly another game-changer in how I live my day-to-day life. And it is a call to take my personal care up a notch- to pay close attention. I see this as another hidden opportunity while I pursue the obvious more obvious and chosen opportunities.
Oh yea, there’s an oil for that too! Young Living’s Transformation essential oil blend includes Idaho Blue Spruce, Palo Santo, and Ocotea. These powerful essential oils empower you to replace negative beliefs with uplifting thoughts when diffused.
It’s all good. And we all land where we need to be. I trust that. Do you?
