How Do You Handle Stress cont………
Faith & Trust.
Now, before you get hysterical like I use to and stop reading, let me explain further.
When I started meditating I use to get this guidance over and over again.
I was angry because I didn’t really understand what it meant.
But now I do.
I have been through some incredibly challenging times over the past 7 years, but I’m not alone.
We all face hardship on our journey through life – I am certainly not the only one, and hardship brings with it stress.
Stress is a bi-product of your reaction to a situation and your reaction is merely a choice.
It is important to relinquish control of a situation you know you can’t change.
Stress arises when we feel overwhelmed, out of control, uncertain, uncomfortable.
When you notice you are stressed – snappy, tense, clenched fist, clenched jaw, first, take a deep breath,
The universe always works in your favor.
You’ve probably heard the universe often dismantles the old to make way for the new.
And the new always arrives, and is always in line with the path you are meant to be on.
If some drastic situation arises in your life, take a step back – – relinquish control and let it unfold, naturally, in it’s own way and in it’s own time.
You don’t have to have all the answers.
You can just let things be.
Have faith that everything is happening for a reason.
Trust in a higher plan.
You can’t go through life pushing, forcing and controlling – if a situation is meant to be then it will be, if a partnership is meant to be, then it will be.
If you lose your job, don’t stress, trust there will be another, better suited and more aligned with your values.
If you lose a partner, don’t stress have faith the right person hasn’t shown up for you yet and trust that they will show up when they are meant to.
Having trust and faith enables you to let go, relinquish control, let things be.
This in turn lowers your stress levels as you let everything unfold as it should.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is step back.
Don’t anticipate an outcome – let the universe surprise you!
The next time someone is squeezing your skull –breathe – and connect with your inner TempleSoul, that place of calm and knowing and say,
I have complete trust and faith that what is transpiring in my life is for my own highest and greatest good. And so it is.
Then let it go.
