As the days go by, the days become lighter, longer, the weather gets warmer and nicer.
I love Spring as my heart opens under the sight of new life bursting all around me, the colours sprouting from the trees and people's gardens. I indulge in the feel of the sun's warm embrace as it awakens the surroundings as well as our bodies and souls from the winter slumber.
I often compare our thoughts to the Spring's seeds. So the question appearing is: How do we cultivate our thoughts and ideas (just like seeds) to bring the focus towards the now, to discover this new growth and self-reflection when it comes to our energy, goals, plans, and actions, both within our inner and outer worlds? Especially during this ongoing pandemic?
Spring, just like this pandemic, is undoubtedly a crazy and unique period for all of us. No matter your age, each person is prone to go through a confusing "blah" moment during the lockdown's seemingly endless days. This can be generated by bad news fatigue, from the TV or social media, or both, by feeling sad, frustrated, angry, upset, lethargic, alone, or isolated from your loved ones, as a result. You might even find yourself feeling disheartened, despondent or even grieving for the loss of what was and often wondering if this pandemic will ever plateau out.
I have broken down the word FLAT into Feel, Love, Achieve and Transform as a part of my integrative healing solutions method. My first concern is to implement change around what is within your control. My objective is to help you shift and or defuse yourself from all these feelings of flatness, stuckness, overwhelm, fear, hurt, or anger which can intensify your emotions around feeling flat or exhausted. Thus, the following ideas are a guide to assist you in uplifting and transforming your vibe.
F = FEEL
Is what you are currently feeling your feelings, or are they to do with someone, events, or situations? Either way, whatever you are feeling in this moment, it is ok to feel this way.
However, if these feelings are no longer serving you, the following will assist you in finding the best ways to support yourself to uplift your current vibe? First, when going through each step, be open and honest with yourself.
L = LOVE
How is your self-love, self-compassion, and self-care, in this present moment? Can you honestly say that you fully experience this type of love towards yourself and, then, towards others? Your entire world needs to be in loving balance. So, here are some questions to keep asking yourself that help you get and maintain this loving state of being:
A = ACHIEVE
Do you still keep your plans and desired achievements fresh and vivid in your daily program? Or have they become a distant memory, squashed by everything that is going on? It doesn't even matter if your objective/ goal/ project is something tiny or huge. It would help if you treated them all equally by celebrating each achievement or step forward each time. Praise each action taken, each little thing that you have already completed. Subsequently, this practice will assist you, step by step, on the journey from being numb to an action-oriented mindset.
T = TRANSFORM
The previous year might have been very active for most of us. Even with lockdown and the inability to go anywhere, we have been busy tidying and re-organizing our households, garages, and finances. Some of you might have even started new projects, crafting, learning new ways of delivering workshops, courses, and other services via YouTube. You need to check if the motivation and focus are still there at their highest capacity after one long year.
Where Do You Find All These Answers?
All your unique answers to the above questions lie within yourself. And they will come quickly to you as long as you are willing to listen to your gut feeling, the inner voice, aka your intuition.
What does it take to hear the voice of your intuition? When you fully connect to yourself, you will transform and discover surprisingly high levels of excitement and happiness and be motivated to implement within your life, despite feeling the restrictive and never-endlessness cycle brought on by the pandemic.
Always remember that you are a work in progress. So be gentle with yourself and ensure your environment is set up correctly to support you during this transition.
Here are the five steps that will transform you and unlock your inner resilience:
