I’ve been listening to Iyanla Vanzant on an Oprah podcast and she said:
Everything that requires healing is going to rush to the surface
And if you don’t take a minute to breathe, to gather yourself, to pray – you will do what you’ve always done
So you’ve got to be clear enough, grounded enough, centred enough, to say
How am I going to handle it this time
So the lesson is… pause
Then she talks about how we go from one job, age, relationship, to the next without a pause
We leave a relationship and jump into the next one thinking the grass is greener
But because you haven’t paused, you bring all your old stuff into it.
I have been craving this pause. This place to stop and unpack what is no longer serving me and leave it being.
I’ve been slowly in the process over the last few years, but the call is getting stronger. It is becoming a matter of survival.
Embrace new beliefs
Connect with God
Sit in stillness
Be at peace.
