Hitting the reset button helps rejuvenate the parts of you that you can feel is pushing for a change. A very confronting experience when it originates in the very depth of your soul with very little specific information, its just a feeling.
When it is your business you will be feeling the need to refresh your current path or even take it in a whole new direction.
What about your job? Feel like changing or giving up altogether?
Often relationships come under the microscope when we feel like those we consider close friends no longer align with our current way of thinking. You might feel an impulse to take your passion and turn it into an income, which is always exciting and a bit scary.
All of these examples come down to one thing…your Self has evolved, or levelled up, and is adjusting to a different way of experiencing the world. Often the need to change comes after a big life event when we are plunged into extraordinary circumstances. We rally while the energy is high and then comes the moment after where we wonder what is next and how do we reconcile the wisdom we have gained. How do we reconcile this shift?
So, how to you embrace that opportunity with the least amount of resistance.
In my life and with my clients I have observed the cycle of discomfort to renewal. I am sharing the processes here and I have related them to the seven chakras. Each step is critical to the cycle of renewal. How you experience it is personal so remember to be patient with yourself.
With each step I have included a meditation to help you...
#1 Feeling restless. I often get that fidgety feeling that something is not quite right, like I have forgotten something. This is the Crown Chakra downloading inspiration and it requires some stillness to listen, listen with the heart. Observing the world through this filter fires up the imagination and when tuned in you will begin to see inspiration everywhere. Now, where to place it….
CROWN CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#2 Feeling envious or admiration of another. Have you ever seen or learned of someone’s achievements and realised you could actually do that? It is not always an heroic feeling yet here we are being nudged to acknowledge our own talents. The Brow Chakra is revealing what is possible through your imagination, placing you front and centre. If you can visualise yourself in their place or dream of yourself doing the same thing you are more than capable of creating this for yourself. You’ve got this!
THIRD EYE CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#3 Meeting people of like mind, finding your tribe. Serendipity? Yes! Finding your tribe is such a blessing. People who speak your language and really get you. Through your Throat Chakra you are able to articulate your desires and build trust in yourself. Your tribe will reflect your ideas and you will gain strength from their support.
THROAT CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#4 How do you feel when you are living your passion? Compliments flow and there is a satisfied feeling from living your dream. Here the Heart Chakra is functioning at its optimum level. Feelings of absolute joy and vulnerability abound here, be fully immersed. The heart is the compass of the Soul. From this point on you may want to turn your passion into something bigger, something to share with a greater audience, maybe a business
HEART CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#5 Tools and real time opportunities just turn up! Wow! how I love it when ideas flow and I succeed, materials I require abound and the right support appears just when I need it in real time. I expand what I am doing and share it with others who find value in my efforts. This is the Solar Plexus working hard to actualise your dreams. Lean into it and let go.
SOLAR PLEXUS ACTIVATION
#6 Making a difference in someones life. Pure joy by just being yourself. Gaining a deep sense of satisfaction from your actions when someone you have helped moves on in their lives, stronger and richer from the shared experience. This creates a strong bond with your Divine Self where joy and gifts manifest tenfold to reward you for following your heart. This is the Sacral Chakra connecting you to the most intimate part of you, observing yourself through a connection with another. Without the work achieved from the above points the deep connection would never exist.
SACRAL CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#7 So here you are rejuvenated and renewed. Shedding the old and glowing within a journey well travelled. Here is the Base Chakra feeling safe and secure, a sense of purpose and control. Here you become the master of your reinvention until, like the Wheel Of Fortune, the next iteration begins its gentle call from within.
BASE CHAKRA ACTIVATION
If you are still unsure where you are or feel unclear where you are on this journey you can do each of the meditations in turn. The meditation that is difficult to complete will be a clue. Repetition is a great way to shift the energy of the chakra and I recommend you continue until you feel clear and calm before moving to the next Chakra.
Learning to be fearless about your future and compassionate towards your gentle heart.
Words are important and recognising phrases such as stuck in a rut, self sabotage, fear of change are clues you are in the resistant portion of this renewal.
You could cut and run, give up, do the same old thing expecting the same results, or… you could recognise the feeling of discomfort, work with it and lessen the anxiety it creates. When you accept this is your intuition letting you know change is in play life does become much easier, I promise.
I am the queen of reinvention. And I have been reflecting on my own life changes while writing this article. Over my lifetime I have shed many layers I have used to protect myself which, in turn, brought a deeper connection to my purpose. It is something that continues this whole life, and into the next.
Once upon a time I struggled. These days I prefer to lean into them as they emerge. I find it makes my life much simple. Also, I don’t like losing days to endless overthinking.
The evolved Soul can feel the shift and lean into it with grace. You can consciously create the direction of your reinvention. When you realise what you have control over it connects you to your Soul power and not only provides motivation, it gives hope for the future.
