Like everyone, I have felt overwhelmed and bombarded lately. I feel like time has sped up to warp speed and nothing is as it used to be. So much change, so quickly. I recently learned that the earth’s basic frequency or “heartbeat” called the Schumann resonance (SR) has increased from where it was for decades at 7.8, to 11 cycles and climbing.
This is both good and bad news. The good news is I’m not crazy … there is something happening; the bad news is there are changes happening beyond our control that we have to learn to deal with!
So what do we do when the new “normal” is change? In my mind there is only one way; and that is to be flexible. Now I, like you, want to be healthy, happy, free from suffering, and to thrive in all ways. It’s just that some days I feel like I am barely getting by – kind of like treading water.
Here are my solutions:
Learn to adapt. This is not easy for many of us but is a skill that is crucial, nonetheless. I think the best way to re-learn life the way many of us need to, is to change the internal dialogue in your head to a very healthy self-talk. I coach my clients all the time in ways to improve their self-talk, and it works wonders for everything!
Flexibility takes time and practice. I don’t know many people who go to their first yoga class and are able to do all of the stretches. Most of us know that it will take time and practice to not only learn the poses, but also to eventually get good at them. Becoming flexible with all of the changes will take enormous patience and effort on your part - after all, it is a whole new practice.
Lighten up. This one’s for all of us perfectionists and workaholics who have high or unrealistic expectations. I mean really … if both time and the earth’s frequency are speeding up, how exactly can we get everything done in one day (like we used to)? We must cultivate a sense of humor and a lightness about it all. This is where your healthy self-talk comes in to play.
We have just entered spring, and ironically, in Chinese medicine, spring is represented by the liver and the wood elements. Wood is both strong and flexible. I think that my new mantra is going to be, “I am strong and flexible”. I like it … what will your new mantra be?
