Being "High-Vibe" or "Spiritual" Doesn't Mean You Are Happy All The Time & Life Is Easy
Guys, this is really important.
Believing the Universe is conspiring in your favor, doesn't mean that it's gonna be smooth sailing from here on out.
Shit will still get heavy, and hard, and messy, and complicated.
The idea, is that you have faith in the mess. You have Source to draw strength from. You believe that "bad" things come into your life to teach you something that ultimately you need to know.
I've been through some things.
My heart has been broken more times than I can count (and I don't just mean in regard to relationships).
But through reflection and self-awareness, I have learned, grown, and become a better version of myself.
A better sister, friend, mother, woman, partner.
I have been more equipped to face the bullshit life throws at me, the little things that just insist on going wrong.
I've been able to help others through similar situations, when they needed someone the most.
And sometimes I'm still sad. Sometimes, I feel weak and spent. Sometimes I'm really fucking angry.
But now, I can feel what I feel and let it teach me, let it guide me to whatever is coming next.
I can ride the waves without succumbing to the tides.
I can get lost in the moment without losing my self.
The past 11 years have been hard. Like, really hard. Like, life wasn't about to cut me any slack.
And at first, I was pulled under. I did lose myself. The little girl who was always so sure of who she was got buried, and people tried to convince me that this was growing up.
But in the past couple years, I've found myself again. I've uncovered that little girl and found that she hadn't changed one bit. She was sitting there, just waiting for me to come home.
And what I learned, is that the only way to get through life is to know who YOU are within it. Life will keep spinning, throwing things at you, changing. People will want things from you, and expect things of you. And if you let it, you will lose yourself inside a roll you never wanted.
But I will tell you this: As soon as you take a moment to LET GO of the expectations of life and people... BE STILL, and rediscover who YOU are, things will start to make sense again. Things will start to feel manageable again.
It's still gonna be hard. But it's a hell of a lot easier to be sure, than to live with uncertainty.
You have to know who you are, beyond a shadow of a doubt. That is how you take back control. That is how you become free.
Stop letting life happen to you. Take a moment to be still and sit with yourself. Who are you? What do you want? Are you happy? Are you being the best that you can be?
Where does "high vibe/spiritual" fit into this? I believe spirituality is the process of navigating back to yourself, rediscovering who you're meant to be, who you aspired to be before life happened to you. It allows you to feel connected to the current, instead of simply pulled along with it.
"This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be when the world was younger and you had everything to lose?"
As a person who tried to give up everything to live, I found that when I had nothing left to lose, I was no longer living.
The world wants you to settle. God doesn't.
Take your life back with a vengeance.
Sit with yourself and trust that old voice you used to know, it still just wants what is best for you. And I guarantee, it is the only one who actually KNOWS what is best for you.
