It’s like we entered a void of uncertainty where we don’t know what could happen. I know firsthand how confusing it can be to see the world as it is and acknowledge no longer fitting in. I knew I couldn’t go back on the same route, but I also paused to feel everything deeply. It’s easy to get stuck and go down a rabbit hole when we encounter only darkness in the world. When we watch a storm, the wind comes from different directions, and the heat from the water rises, and every element affects the direction and speed of the storm. Storms sometimes come into our lives to teach us and make us stronger. No one is 100 percent immune from a storm coming his or her way. The key is not to dwell on it to the point that we get stuck in the eye of the storm, but to anticipate the ebb and flow of life.
This is why pausing is an important skill to have—but it’s far from easy. We spend much of our lives being influenced by other people’s expectations of us, from parents to friends and even employers. We get so busy with living up to our expectations that solitude often escapes us. But a beneficial aspect of being with ourselves is figuring out who we want to actually be. Whole new fields of possibility open up to us.
It’s time to see and act holistically and with unity, not conformity or uniformity. Everything in the universe is connected by design. Remember that, when we’re all sad and fearful, this energy storms and vibrates through all of us. Many storms appear in our lives and our world. There’s strength in uncovering pure joy and rewiring our energy source to have more balance. Every person who is ready to journey into the unknown is being asked to face his or her fears and limiting beliefs. Allow yourself to emerge with a vision and understanding of why you are here. What do you want to build and create? And don’t forget to sing, dance, run, scream, let go, cleanse, so you can create what’s in your heart through alchemy and pure authentic love of yourself and the planet.
In this current reality, no one’s path is easy. But when you stop comparing yoursef and living up to the expectations, you’ll find yourself alone—discovering the courage to leave the harbor and trust the current. And maybe, like me, you’ll also find a deep gratitude for everything—the terrifying places the mind takes you, the failures, the heartbreaks, and the breakthroughs. Taking steps into the unknown and inviting healthy experiences expand your horizons. When you’re no longer a victim of your situation and systems, you choose discomfort and uncertainty with an open heart.
