So often, we want dramatic changes to our circumstances, and we want them fast.
When we are in a place in our lives that doesn’t feel good, or we feel stuck, like we aren’t moving forward, we want immediately resolution. It sucks to be in pain or to be hurting. It’s only natural to want immediate relief.
When we take consistent action and are willing to “show up” and do the work required to transform, we set the steps in motion that take us on the path to healing and transformation.
But, when we are “in the middle of it” it is really, really hard to see that we are making progress.
All we see is the end goal: the way we want to be, the way we want to feel. And if we aren’t 100% there yet, we don’t think any progress has been made.
I see this with my energy healing clients all the time. Since I work with women with high anxiety and stress, they don’t think they have made progress in their lives if they still feel any anxiety or any stress.
But what they most likely aren’t accounting for is the reduction in the level of stress or anxiety, or the reduction in occurrences.
These women are making so much progress. Even the acknowledgement that there must be a better way to live and the desire for something else or something more is a step. It is the first little step in the process and evolution.
The next little step is then being curious about how the changes to emotional freedom can occur and considering methods to get there.
Of course, energy healing is an amazing method for powerful change in stress and anxiety reduction.
Every time we take a specific action, no matter how small, to get to the desired outcome, we are making progress.
If it is a single meditation session, if it is a session with a therapist, if it is a session with me. Even if it is a single deep breath focused on letting go.
We work through what I call the “big boulders” first. There are the biggest issues we need to heal from (and why we so often feel stuck, because there is resistance to letting these huge traumas release) that make profound changes.
Then we start working on the smaller “rocks.” Then after that we are working on the “pebbles.”
For some of my clients, they DO have big, fast, dramatic breakthroughs. But for others, the changes unfold over time, sometimes months.
The changes away from stress and anxiety can be a gentle shift. So gentle that we don’t notice it at all. But when we look back, after 4-5 months, at who we used to be, we see how far we’ve actually come.
Trust that you are headed in the right direction and that you are going to get there. You’ve already made progress.
