Due to recent shifts in financial stabilities, I've come face to face with taking my own medicine. I'm definitely on a journey towards minimizing and decluttering my life of anything that distracts from that which is important. With this recent occurrence, my emotions have flailed up and down, with moments wrenching my heart and those that are saturated solidly on peace. When I step completely back, and don't allow my mind to think too hard, my body and spirit know that things are going to work out just fine. My head however, is the biggest bully I've ever met scrutinizing my body with, "worry, worry, worry - you need security!!"
We tend to under-think security, always balancing it as the greater good. However in most cases, security becomes the enemy of our growth. Security is at the heart of whether we will make any big movements or even take a chance on a small one. One great thing I have going for me is that I've been here many times before. I've endured several challenges including having a child too young, getting married too young, buying a house to young, and moving to California on a dream. These challenges and the financial shifts attached didn't kill me then, and I know they're not going to kill me now. My body, spirit, and a still small voice within whispers to me, "Myranda, it's going to be okay." It is my mind's demand for security right now that is ceaselessly creating imbalance and stress.
Having a child too young lead me to the gentlest, most spectacular person I've ever met. My little person inspired me to expand myself in ways that I may have otherwise missed out on. Getting married at 20-nothing lead me to my best friend who has encouraged and supported all of my major self-discovery movements. Buying and selling a house in small town America taught me that that dream was never mine to begin with. And living in California with my family and dreams has taught me to let go, rid my heart's ego, and focus on the things that matter.
And so today with audacity, I say "No." I say "no" to you Mind. I will not allow your worrisome antics to take up residence in my body or spirit. I live in a universe created from nothing, brought forth into complete expansive abundance. Abundance that is constantly available to me no matter my circumstances. Rather than sinking sand, I see growth and opportunity. Where there were moments of despair, I choose hope. And when you banter at me to worry, I will listen to the Still Small Voice that lives within, whispering gently to me, "This is the way walk in it." The Creator has plans for prosperity, hope, and a future - and I give myself permission to choose that perspective every time an ounce of worry enters this temple. Namaste
