It's ok to take your time.
It takes courage to be in pain.
When we come to this Earth, we are aware that there will be suffering. And somehow, we still decide to come anyways.
It takes courage to be here. Living. Breathing. Being. Hurting.
With all of the suffering, all of the pain and all of the heartache, I am always amazed at the resiliency of the human spirit.
To keep showing up, day after day after day, even when things are unbearably hard.
It takes even more courage to heal.
To make the brave decision to look inward and shine the light on the true source of your pain is quite terrifying for the nervous system.
Don’t take it personally. That is just how it has been designed!
Your body has an inherent wisdom that will keep you safe at all costs, even if that means keeping you stuck for much longer than you may like to be!
The thing is, most of the time, the best thing to do is allow yourself to fully feel it.
Today I’d like to remind you that it is ok to be stuck in your pain. To feel it. To be in it. To learn from it. To find the wisdom in it.
To stay with it until it naturally starts to lose its grip on you.
Healing isn’t something we can force upon ourselves.
Our body, our psyche and our spirit have an innate wisdom that knows how to reveal to us exactly what we need to know at the exact right moment.
The best thing we can do in the meantime is cultivate a deeper sense of compassion for ourselves as we let our innate wisdom work its magic.
So if you’re going through something right now, if there is something you are feeling, allow yourself to feel it as much as you can.
The human experience isn’t just about feeling joy, happiness and peace, it’s ok to be scared, to feel angry, to feel your grief.
It is through these difficult emotions that we get to know what compassion is.
As you step onto your healing journey, remind yourself, there is no rush.
It’s OK to take your time.
Please share with anyone who may need to hear these words right now.
May we all support one another to uplift the heart of our world to greater experiences of love, health & harmony.
