The Upheaval of Swift Unexpected Change

No one is prepared for the shock or heartache when the moment arrives. The wave of disbelief is felt throughout the entire body which quickly sends out messages of fear. Looking for the good side meets with uncertainty in the early days because you don’t have the strength to cope with problem solving. Breathing is slow and trance-like as you stare into an abyss of fog. All planning and routine have fallen as you are stuck in a place you haven’t been before. You know there is a way round these feelings, but there is no hurry to achieve. The emotional experience must be fulfilled in order for healing and growth to emerge.

Swift change is a shocking and life changing event! Whether it is a death, a lucky escape, a job loss, a serious injury, an altered relationship, financial distress, or a natural disaster, it’s new territory that brings a great sense of loss. Initially it’s a flight or fight response, but responsibility brings you back to the decision making that has to take place. Life is constantly moving and altering, though most manage a daily routine that involves family and employment. We are all on the unstable foundations which the earth provides, but we have built a billion houses on that without too much stress. Nothing in our lives is a fixed as we would like it to be, but we are taught to look on the positive side because this creates happiness and a sense of direction, purpose and meaning. There is no point dwelling on ‘what-ifs,’ when you can be leading a life of love, creativity and satisfaction.

When the upheavals comes work through it at your own pace. Life is a beautiful experience dotted with the bleak moments that need love, support and compassion. The focus of life is to experience joy in all its forms – if you can’t find some joy in life you need to create the swift positive changes that make life wonderful again. Sometimes you have to embody the strength of a warrior to accomplish the tasks that will release you from burden and create a new direction. Determination and confidence goes a long way when you can see your new vision rising.

There is a new year, a new month, a new day and a new minute that you are here. All you have to do is make decisions on what to do next. The mind is always young, the heart is always yearning and the senses need the experience’s that make life joyous. You are the director of your life’s journey – make plans that support your spiritual well-being!
