Peace and a Present (2010)
Get Back In
Most of you are accustomed to my river metaphor description of what I call "living in the current". Here's a quick refresher, just in case. Living in the current means boldly moving in the direction you want to go with the willingness to adjust course when needed and the faith that you will be supported. It is having a deep connection to life itself. There is a sense of going for it, excitement, and movement and at the same time there is also a feeling of calm, trust, and a great appreciation for the present moment. When you act boldly and it feels right to you, you are moving into the current. When you let go and make adjustments, this is also moving with the current or as they say, going with the flow.
Since no one is in the current 100% of the time, the question becomes how do you recognize when you are in vs. out and what can you do to get back in when you notice you're out? I'm going to focus on the latter question for today's issue.
Here are three observations from personal experience this past month about the adjustments I usually need to make whenever I find myself outside the current. I'll put them in the form of three questions:
Whenever you find yourself outside the current, try using these questions to help you pinpoint how to "get back in". Combine that with a raised awareness of the supports and resources that are showing up to help you. One other tip: If necessary, allowing a little meltdown first can be a great help. More on that another time!
