For things to change first I must change
Change is an inevitable part of life. You are born, grow up, enter into relationships, forge careers, have children, age and experience loss and death. Whether it comes in the form of conscious choices to live a new way or as unexpected events, tragic loss or upheaval in your life, every shift asks you to re-structure your perspectives and behaviours so you can evolve.
One of the biggest obstacles to change lies overcoming the inertia of your ego.
Ego’s job is to keep you safe and change of any kind is perceived as a threat to that safety. Thus, stepping into change can be fearful when ego’s inner messages want to hold you back.
Successfully meeting life’s redirects means finding tools that support you to adapt, to override the ego’s anxiety and to embrace the change.
Get moving! Introduce new routines and behaviours each day:
Give yourself the space to reflect and embrace the changes
Use the power of your Breath to break up and release blockages
Take responsibility for your future. Be the artist of your life
We are energy after all and while it is a basic law of physics that energy cannot be destroyed, it can be changed to different forms. You have that power – Feel free to use it!
