11 Tips to embrace change with grace

More and more people are growing aware of changes and opportunities for change are unfolding all around them. 

You may find yourself feeling confused, uncomfortable, getting emotional more often, noticing opportunity for change knocking at your door or change happening without you in different situations.  Consider 11 tips for embacing change with grace:

1) Focus inward

Pay attention to how you are thinking and feeling. Be aware of core beliefs you project are what reflects and your external reality.

2) Notice your emotional triggers

Being aware of your emotional triggers implies not only recognizing when you are triggered, uncovering and healing deeper reasons for them.  This empowers you to create a new reality.

3) Talk less, listen more

Rather than listen with the intent to reply, listen with the intent to understand how you/ people are feeling. This approach offers surprising insight into why it feels easy or hard to go with the flow of change.

4) Validate yourself

Validating yourself is being heartfelt. Listening to the heart means taking more action based on intuition, and having the courage to do what feels right rather than on what you are conditioned to believe is acceptable or would appease others.

5) Invest more in personal development

When spiritual or related programs, workshops, courses, books, videos, coaches or mentoring enter your scope, you are ready.  Its up to you to see the value in investing in yourself and actually commit.

6) Offer workshops or courses

Share insight based on your passion, interest or hobby. Join skillshare, offer your own on-line courses, propose a physical airbnb experience in your local area.  The options are only limited by your imagination. 

7) See everything is connected

What is happening in education, economies, religion and other spheres is all connected.  From the moment you grow more aware of trends and interconnectedness, you begin to see through illusions of separation on a whole new level.

8) Accept yourself

The degree you accept (or reject) yourself is reflected back in every area of your perception and life. As you grow in tolerance and understanding of the world around you, this reflects changing self-acceptance.

9) Love more

As you can begin to find something to appreciate whatever you perceive to be happening, you are beginning to see through your own filters of judgement and negativity. Resistance to change is akin to resisting love.

10) Feel deeper

Feelings are key to understanding yourself and why you choose to suffer, see and create the world as you do. Suppressing feelings is the conditioned way to live.  The more you explore your feelings in the moment and along timelines rather than overlook or deny them, the more you begin to understand yourself and why you accept or resist your destiny in thi s (and other) lifetime (s).

11) Explore breathwork

Consciousness flows through the breath.  Exploring breathwork is a kind of rebirthing process which allows you to gain invaluable insight into how and why you create habits, behaviours and patterns. All of this shapes your perception of Self and the external. It helps you understand your unconscious motives for creating and responding to change. Nothing transforms your life like making the unconscious conscious.


Get the point of the exercise

When you are receptive, every experience offers lessons.  Whether or not you realize it, you invite everyone you encounter into your life to help you grow and learn more about yourself. Every moment is an opportunity to see connections between the person you were, that which you are, and where you are going. Every thought leads to a belief and every belief creates experience. Its all based on vibration. Do you feel the messages you send out? Recognize your experience mirrors back your thoughts and beliefs.  If you do not like your experience, you have power to change it right now.

No matter what you do, the point of the exercise is to get to know yourself better, to clarify what means the most, to let go of what is unnecessary in your life and to display a growing confidence in all you do. Pay attention. What is your story? What do you tell yourself? What are you sharing? How can it be polished? Imagine your ideal scenario.  Feel what its like to live it.


5 Tips to make smoother transitions

Whether you see a move on the horizon, a change of scenery, workplace, relationship or other conditions, these five tips can assist you to make smoother transitions;

1. Act as if.

From the moment you grasp everything unfolds based on energy vibration, you realize it is to your advantage to visualize and act as if related details of your pending transition are already smoothly in place. This requires exercising the imagination and remembering experience arises only as you dream it into being. Whatever behaviour or pattern you wish to let go of or outgrow, tell yourself so be it and whatch the result unfold within you.

2. Feel as if.

If you sense you do not receive on some level what you feel you deserve, you benefit from treating yourself as you would  like to be treated, and even better than that. Recognize people do not receive what they deserve, but what they allow and choose to gift or withold from themselves. Whatever you think you are not getting, you are depriving it from yourself as a lesson or invitation to alter your vibration. 

3.  Know everything is already here.

Recall only abundance exists. Perceived lack only exists in the mind. It is reassuring to know whatever you are convinced you require is already  being offered to you and is accessible to you when you are ready and willing to accept it. Whether its money, guidance, a new home, business, or other change you are ready for, imagine that it presents like the parking space you desire around the corner and so it is- presto!

4. Love all that arises.

Taking personal responsibility is loving all that arises and accepting you create and manifest it all for your own soul growth. You do not have to see higher consciousness to be aware that you work in cooperation with your highest being.

5. You always move from here to here.

It may surprise you but the idea of linear time it seems to require to make or allow your dreams to manifest is an illusion. Nothing is really happening and yet, you are enjoying the process of co-creating immensely.


Take Everything in Stride

Events that are unfolding in your life invite you to take everything in stride. From the highest point of view, all that you experience is created by you for your greatest good.  That is, everything you encounter can be viewed as an opportunity to expand into more of your unrecognized genius.

Watch what happens as you find something to love wherever you are.  Situations arise because you are ready to notice. You ultimately invite them into your scope because you are ready for lessons, ready to integrate wisdom that is offered. Taking everything in stride is being willing to see everythig that presents as a blessing in disguise. Remove the mask.

Where can you identify blessings in your life today?
