So how do you accept the contraction while you’re in it?
Acceptance is key. It’s helpful to stop resisting or feeding into fear when things begin to contract in your life. You may not be able to control everything around you, but you can control your mindset and that is key.
During difficult times, do you best to root yourself into your body and spirituality; try communing in prayer, going for a walk, connecting with nature, switch from podcasts/tv show background noise to meditative or energizing music, spend time in gratitude, and picture all the faces of those who support you and who have influenced you along your journey. I also recommend, that once a week you set aside 10 minutes to find a cleansing ritual that really works for you, and allow yourself to mentally shift from managing what’s going wrong to focusing on what is going right.
