Are you resisting progress or riding the waves of change?
Sometimes, change feels welcome and exciting – it’s something you’ve yearned for, or even worked towards. But all too often we greet its impending arrival with dread, resisting it with all our might.
In doing so, we rob ourselves of the opportunity to recognise these new developments in our lives as a guiding hand from the universe, pointing us in a new direction - perhaps one filled with adventures, learning or opportunities that we can’t yet imagine.
How do you know when you're resisting change?
- You’re tense or worried about changes that have already occurred or are on the cards
- Your life circumstances have altered in ways beyond your control, and you feel powerless or panicky about what happens next (which might lead you to respond by getting just a *little bit* control freaky….)
- You’ve got a feeling that things are shifting, and you’re constantly strategising in your head about ways to stop them
- You’re receiving lots of guidance, signs or nudges pushing you in a particular direction, but you’re holding back because it seems too risky
- You’ve finally achieved the changes you’ve been working towards (go you!), but for some reason can’t bring yourself to fully embrace everything they involve
On the other hand, what are the signs you’re welcoming change with ease and grace?
- It feels like you're surfing - as though you're being swept along by a force that's more powerful and more intelligent than you, and that every moment of it is a rush!
- You feel excited about the new opportunities and experiences heading your way
- You’ve got the energetic sense that the door that recently closed has opened up space for some positive developments – even if you don’t know what they are yet
- You’re curious about what’s going to happen next – life is an amazing adventure!
- You trust that you’re being guided in the right direction and that you’ll be able to navigate the path along the way
