Earthquake! Life~Quake!

April 1, 2014 2 Comments

Wow! Earthquake! They are becoming much more frequent these days…and I’m not just talking about the ones that are shaking Southern California!

My life these days feels like its being turned completely upside down. So many changes, unexpected ones but expected if that makes any sense. What I’ve realized is that that which is not in alignment with who I am and where I am being guided are falling away, again. At the same time, it’s totally unnerving, anxiety filled, frustrating, sad, exciting, and unpredictable. Sounds manic, I know…Like I said, it feel like I’m going through a life quake right now. The earth beneath me is rocking and shaking and I don’t have anything to grasp onto but TRUST that I am exactly where I need to be.

I see it in SO many people these days going through these major shifts in their life. Whether its just having had a baby, realizing their jobs are not fulfilling them and its time to move on, not knowing what the next step is but its time to do something different…its a strange place to be! But we must always remember that first and foremost, WE ARE SUPPORTED, and that in the midst of chaos, its okay to go with the FLOW and be in the emotions. Don’t deny what you feel, don’t suppress them and act like its all ok. Vulnerability is our greatest strength, and I’ve realized that sometimes it takes a life quake to shake things up and get stagnant energy moving. It’s a part of the journey…

It’s the law of nature, what goes up must come down. There has always been an ebb and flow to life, and that’s what keeps things in balance. ¬†Even as I write this, I know that ~all is well~ What’s shifting on the outside is reflecting whats really true for me on the inside. And something GREATER is on it’s way. Space is being made so that the *light* can shine brighter! I can speak for myself and everyone else I witness going through these major transitions in their life.

I recently decided to evaluate my life and see what activities on a day to day basis were full-filling and not. I realized I did a lot of things just because I had to. I DECIDED in that moment to do things because I choose to, not because I had to! These sub conscious decisions/intentions to live a path of peace and happiness I realized has been shaping my reality and what happens in my life. And thats why I am here today, standing in the middle of an earthquake….

See you on the other side!

    Beautiful words Jenny! I think so many of us can feel like we are stuck in our daily routines especially when something happens causing life alternations we don’t expect. When these life “earthquakes” happen I think our first reaction is to think – what change do I need to make given this crazy wake-up call. But, maybe rather then jumping to make a change, we just need to roll with the quake and see where we end up. We need to trust our paths and be selective and open to all opportunities. We need to listen to our inner self and give ourselves grace. I love your comment about decided to do things because you choose to vs. feeling like you have to…wonderful words of encouragement! Beautiful!

    Thanks Jenny for sharing, i think meditation really helps me breaking my habitual behavior/thought, questioning my actions (why i do certain things), it also helps me to be more spontaneous, not planning too much :-) … i agree with you about doing things because we choose to not that we have to … regarding trust, i need to inquire more in this area because i think some wisdom is needed to be able to trust the right thing … experience life to the fullest without attachment is what i like to do :-)
