Advice From An Elder During a Downward Spiral
On voicing what you want.
I was in a downward spiral in my head earlier today. I didn’t do anything to bring on the circumstances that sent me there…except to hook up with reactive thoughts and allow them to spiral out of control.
I got discouraged and even angry very quickly, and that did not support the work I’m doing to keep a positive mindset and the effort I’m putting into manifesting a life partner, fulfilling work, and a change of residence. (For the record, New York City is my target, for anyone who’s reading and can possibly assist in the manifestation of these desires. ::wink wink::)
A little while ago, in the few moments when I stopped circulating self-defeating, downward-spiraling thoughts, a little light of inspiration floated softly through my mind. It was the phrase, “Wisdom of the elders.”
So I called an 80-year old friend. She listened for a few minutes and then offered this:
“Put a voice to what you want. Say it out loud over and over, creating momentum around those desires. Focus softly without forcing anything. Allow yourself to feel good.”
I stopped talking and took that thought in…
Then recalibration, refocus, clarity, peace.
The Universe delivered again and I heard.
