Do you move away from change or towards it. Are you afraid of change and hold on to ‘the way things are’ for grim death. Do you fear change? Does change feel like you are going to lose something that you like? Or, does change feel exciting and you want to reach out and embrace it!
Let me, let you into secret! Change occurs throughout life in every nanosecond of your life, within you and around you. Let’s look within you. When you were conceived, which by the way was a miracle, you began as a single cell and out of the millions of sperm looking for you, one beat all the others to find you and began your life. With in seconds one cell became two and two became four and four became eight and so on. At this point, change was imperative for life, not just any little change, but monumental changes. At one point in this massive growth cycle, a cell divided and started to vibrate. This cell is different to the other cells and knows it. When it has multiplied many times, they will vibrate in unison and eventually, will become the heart beat. Without these changes you would not exist.
Changes don’t stop when we are born, our bodies continuously change until our last breath. Our minds continue to grow and change as we gather knowledge and wisdom, as we learn new things we become capable of doing more in our world. Our opinions change, our circumstances change, our friendships change, our jobs change, our dreams and visions change and our understanding of who we are changes.
Have you ever held on tight to a friendship that is destructive in your life? Probably because you thought without that friend you would be alone? Perhaps holding onto that friend, created a block preventing the right kind of friend to step into your life? Sometimes you need to create a space for the new to enter. In that space, you get to feel who you are and what you want, in the silence of the space between things and people.
Perhaps you have held onto a relationship that holds you back rather than supports you as you move forward. Afraid that if you let that relationship go, you will never find another one. Believing that the one you have is the best you can have because you don’t deserve any better. Moving away from change is like holding onto ‘what is’ so tightly that ‘what is to come’ has not room to enter.
I love change! This doesn’t mean that I throw things away without thought or contemplation. It means that I look for ways to grow and develop and to be the best I can be. I see life as dynamic not static. That means that I embrace change, I honour it and I welcome it as I would welcome an old friend. I see change as opportunity. Like everything else in life I see that we can move towards something or away from it. Strengthen our growth or weaken it by being afraid. Of course, there are times when change should be avoided because it would be detrimental to our survival. But the change I am talking about is the change where you see an opportunity and you embrace it. Where you leave self-doubt at the door and reflect about the new possibilities that change can bring.
Even when that heart beat stops, change occurs, whether you embrace it or not.
I embrace change. I value it, I honour it and I welcome change as an old friend. Change is everywhere. I am the embodiment of change. Bring it on!
