Don't squeeze it!
Eww... okay, I know, but as the stress of the holidays bears down on my VERY sensitive skin, I get reminded of what I hear regularly from my guides. Don't push it or force the issue to the surface before it is ready. This isn't really all about a pimple... I just wanted to get your attention and I love metaphors present in our life. Even the unpleasant ones. :) Okay, a better one might be that a mother duck doesn't help her babies out of their eggs. Even though she knows what needs to happen next and it seems like such a struggle. It is a necessary struggle. But that is just it, it IS related to your life. So quickly we want to rush through hard situations and push things through to the other side when things are "clear" again. We want to force things to be done before they are and in doing so make things worse or make them last longer than necessary.
When I offer healings to others I have to set my space to allow them to be supported where they are rather than where they "should" be. I do not judge where they are at and try and point them where I want them to go, but simply help them be more present in their power NOW. I am sympathetic to the struggle but often times can find humor in it too, where there typically is none. (not always appreciated by the client but helpful to the healing nevertheless) But my judgement is no more useful than their own, on what to do next. The reason this is true is for several profound reasons. One most important fact being I don't know what I don't know. Meaning, I may have an idea in my head of what might work better. But the direction this person is heading is usually in a place I couldn't even dream up. So who am I to limit the healing with my thoughts and ideas. Instead, I open up to the power of the miracle and just facilitate whatever goodness wants to show up. Maybe there are some hints in their on where to look, but never a "should" or "must" or hurry and get to the next place in life.
Now if only I could do that in my own life 100% of the time! :)
Insightful Inspiration of the Week
What are you trying to force to closure before it is ready? What issue are you trying to rush? See if you can allow yourself to drop away some of that urgency and just be with the situation at hand. Notice, are you making it worse by trying to "fix it"? Perhaps you are suppose to just step back and allow it to turn itself. Maybe you are over correcting and it will swing back into balance if you take your expectations out of it.
Release yourself from the responsibility to make things "right" and see what purpose the situation is serving. Don't beat yourself up for where you are or how you got there. Instead see the good of it. If you can't figure it out now, try stepping back from it. Find something else to do that is fun and makes you laugh. Then return to it with fresh eyes to see what else you can learn. This isn't to say the universe doesn't want us to have endurance, but sometimes it wants us to take our white knuckled grip of the steering wheel and let it drive. Remember, you can't know, what you don't know. But divinity is there to help us allow more of the goodness to show up so we can know it. If we allow it to. This is called surrender.
