Sometimes, particularly when you least expect it, the Universe gives you a big kick! You can either view it as a negative blow or as an opportunity to jump forward. No matter what, the Universe’s kick is going to make you move. Movement is what life is all about.
We might think that we can stand still and resist change but in that moment of resistance we are still making a move. We make the move to go against the tide and it takes effort to stand against the flow of water that tries to take us to a new shore. Hard work to maintain the status quo!
Why not take the leap and move into the unfamiliar? We are taking what we should know best with us: our bodies, our brains, our emotions, our spirit.
Sometimes we don’t completely know ourselves or are only aware of parts of ourselves. For most people, we are least aware of our bodies.
Our bodies hold memories from our childhood when we dreamed that anything was possible. When the Universe pushes us to make a change, our bodies can help us to know in what direction to jump. Becoming aware of how our bodies feel helps us to make the best choices.
Get grounded and go within to find the answers to your questions. Be in your body!
As Martha Graham, a pioneer of modern dance, once said, “Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul’s weather”.
