Changing our internal weather report is not always easy. There's no doubt that we are influenced by the external, whether it's a storm of snow, stress, or misguided communication. The external doesn't need to be determinant, however. We can open the curtains on a cloudy day, guiding our internal sun to shine and brighten our Light.
"What part of me is being touched here?" is a great question to ask when we are feeling frustrated, afraid, misunderstood, or otherwise triggered. Instead of looking to rearrange the world to make us more comfortable and "solve the problem", can we instead come to know the part of us that is uncomfortable? Isn't that really what's calling out to us?
Underneath the body wrangled in an emotional whirlwind, how did the storm get brewed up in the first place? What is the source seed of our tender spot? Usually it's a fear of some sort. When we get to know this, our simple act of awareness lifts the mayhem energy around it. We now know what is seeking support. This awareness alone creates an empowering perspective. With witness consciousness, we can see ourselves from a bigger perspective in relationship to our triggering event and all the ways we became uncomfortable. This type of awareness puts our higher self back in control of our experience, providing the framework of insights that switch us away from being a reactive participant. We don't need to run away to change the situation. Witness consciousness allows us to stand sturdy when the storm wind blow hard.
Our mind is the creator of our life experiences. How we internalize the external world determines the weather of our day. Granted, poop happens but its up to each and every one of us to decide if we're going to compost it or step in it. It's messy business cleaning up poop from our soles but composting it for soul flowers is fantastic.
