I've heard the expression "Expect the best and prepare for the worst" uttered by mentors in various areas of self help; motivational and transformation programs; as well as teachers of financial freedom. I think it's a great quote, one worth repeating and probably best expressed by Maya Angelou: "Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst, and unsurprised by anything in between." More relevant than any news headline at present.
If we can be prepared no matter what happens we can be ok with anything. This doesn't mean that we condone certain things - it only means that we choose to have dominion of our life and being. When you choose what you think and feel, and how you act, you begin to self govern. You stop relying on someone else to make decisions for your life in areas of physical, social, financial, emotional, spiritual, mental and other aspects of your well being. Who has your best interest in any of those areas? You or corporations whose alliance and interest might be with your arch-enemy.
Most people struggle and fight to keep themselves comfortable, to avoid change and keep certain ways of life predictable. It gives them a false sense of security and safety because life is antonymous with predictable, certain, comfortable. In a world of ever-changing energies in every sphere of life, it's easy to feel fear from uncertainty and pressure from all the "what ifs". Your heart and soul is your best compass to navigating your way, in times of high tides and winds of change.
The ancient principles of life guide you to be free to do what you will as long as you do no harm, no evil towards the innocent. Who are the innocent? Nature and all her creations and creatures. Nature and all her creations! Most people think not much of nature and have lost all connection to her. They are grossed out by bugs, scared of germs and fearful of getting a little dirt on their feet. Mother Nature has all the answers. She is our nature and nurture! She has all that our bodies need - remember: We are Nature. (Not machines, programmed to produce desired output). Get immersed in her. Cherish and respect her and she will guide you to overcome and understand anything that you are going through. Nature will help you remember your purpose. Nature will guide you and empower you to overcome any circumstance.
Whatever will be, will be. Live now and live by your values and let your integrity be your virtue. In the world of ever-changing energies if you find yourself frustrated because you cannot plan things, because uncertainty of times makes you nervous or upset: Let go of fear, worry and having to figure things out. Self empowerment is a way to gain dominion over any circumstance. When we take responsibility for everything that we experience, we no longer blame or act as a victim. Come what may and we will look for solutions trusting that we will be ok.
How do you empower thyself? With all that you got and all that you know. Use all the skills and wisdoms that you have acquired along the way of your life's journey. Practice those tools that work for you. Keep your mind clear of worry, fear and no possibility. Instead of drowning with negative thoughts and feelings, look for solutions. You don't have to figure your whole life out: take one step that will raise your vibration higher. Do all that you know and if you are only going to do one thing, let that be gratitude. Find something to be thankful for, it will raise your vibration and make you a magnet for more things to be grateful for. Start being grateful for your breath - and that is plenty! You are here for a reason and your gift is needed in the world! That's why you are here, now.
Do you let your intuition guide you in life? How do you expand your intuition? How do you move forward? What single action can you do right now that will make a difference for you? Whom can you call right now to make a request? Answer these questions as if someone is asking you for advice! Answer them as if your life depended on it. Perhaps it's time to employ self governance in a way that serves the greater good of one and all. Empowering self by all the ways you can will help you make one step at a time. Keep moving!
