Life has a way of changing things up without our permission. There are so many events that take place that we did not plan for. What can make it difficult to navigate when the Unexpected hits us; is not feeling grounded within, you know, that internal tightrope that keeps us steady in times of great changes.
Take many moments out of your day to affirm your strengths and self-love. That is the best way to feed your internal resources when the unexpected arrives, and it will.
Mantra: I trust my own internal compass to lead the way all the while loving myself more. Dolby Dharma
“A day will come when you will be stirred by unexpected events. A part of you will die, and you will begin to search for the elixir to bring this part of you back to life.
You will seek this elixir in friends, lovers, enemies, books, religions, foreign countries, heroes, songs, rituals, and jobs. But no matter where you look, the treasure will evade you.
All will seem lost. You will lose all hope that this magic potion even exists. It will be the darkest of nights, and the promise of certain death will lead you to the abyss of despair.
But, staring into this abyss, you will begin to see the dim light of your own illumined soul.Your radiance will transform the abyss itself into the elusive elixir of life. And for the first time, you will realize that all the while . . . It was your own Light that you were searching for.”
