From the moment you open your eyes in the morning and interact with any person or anything there is the chance that things might not go smoothly. It doesn’t matter how much we plan, how good our intentions are or the fact that we are ‘nice’, bad or unpleasant things happen to everyone. The fact is we all interpret the world differently, none of us see and sense the world in the same way, which will always leave any situation open to our own interpretation, that may not be shared by another.
How do we make sense of it all and keep going?
I recently had a momentary break down about my life, (it was a F#k this Sh#t …I’m done kind of moment!) it only lasted 2 days, it all just got too much. I had been deceived by someone that I had let into my world, the intentional and vindictive deception had flawed me and on top of all the normal pressures I have with my work and being a single mother, it literally knocked the wind out of me.
The moment I realised I had hit that wall, I booked into ‘Craig’. Craig is a shamanic healer and he is always the person I run to when life gets too hard, I literally don’t know how I could have gotten through some of the toughest moments in my life without the resources I have to pick me back up and get me back to feeling myself, so I can ‘save’ myself.
Who is your Craig? What do you do when life starts feeling too hard? We all need our own ‘Craig’. Yours might be getting out in nature, swimming in the ocean, seeing your kinesiologist, asking your loved ones for extra support.
It’s so up lifting to see that when one door closes, that many more doors will open. While recently one door in my life was firmly slammed shut and while it was at it jarred my finger and damaged my door. I could cry about that door for a while if I wanted, however once I turned away from that door, I started to see the blessings that were all around me, I just needed to see them.
Since this awful incident occurred in my life, I have literally had so many people come along and support me in their own way, without even knowing how much it has meant, or even that I needed it. You just need to look around you, you’ll find that there are angels everywhere, you just need to see them and stop looking at that door. You also start to see that when you share your story, so many people have a similar one to share, in that sense you know you are never alone, you are not the first person to be taken advantage of and there are many people around you that can offer their support because they have been through it themselves.
If you are going through a tough time at the moment, which might be heightened because of family & work pressures heading into the holiday session, know that you not alone in your struggle, that we all go through it and if you just reach around for support, you might not have to stretch out as far as you think.
Light & Love
