I know that life can be tough sometimes, I hear this such a lot lately from some of my lovely clients. And I’ve been through tough times myself.
People are experiencing loss, illness, grief, shock, sadness, trauma and more and in these instances it can be utterly exhausting or overwhelming to even get out of bed some days which is why I’m suggesting the simplest of things to do.
It’s at these times when we ALL would be wise to acknowledge that none of these feelings, emotions, thoughts or experiences are “negative”. They are our life experiences and we need support to get through them.
(I don’t really like the terms “positive” and “negative”)
Some folk only like to focus on the “happy clappy, everything is Love and Light” theory and anything else is “negative” but in my experience this is damaging and detrimental as well as judgmental, outdated and quite frankly a crazy way of viewing the human experience!
Instead we could be more understanding, loving and compassionate and real by saying to those we know that are experiencing tough times -:
“How can I support you?”
“What do you need?”
“Would you like to chat?”
“Can I give you a hug?”
“Please cry if you need to, it’s fine I’m here for you”
The only way any of us recover from the big stuff, the tough stuff, is by being gentle with ourselves and surrounding ourselves with other gentle, supportive and wholesome folk who get it, really get it!
Then and only then can we receive the healing that we need at a deep level and navigate through it all and come out the other end.
And THEN the happiness and the joy WILL return.
I send you love and a hug if you need it and remember I’m here for one to distance healing treatments, coaching sessions, Reiki treatments, offer courses to help you, guided meditations and more - just click here to discover.
