Tested... sometimes we are tested. The Universe asks me "What is your resolve? How much more can you stretch and expand?" Some of our greatest tests are how we respond to those who would teach us our greatest lessons... these are 'growth opportunities'. But you know, sometimes I get mad. Sometimes tears run down my cheeks uncontrollably. Sometimes I feel small and powerless. Sometimes it's not a lesson I really want to take on. Sometimes it's the same lesson with a different name.
Those are the moments I know I need to breathe. To remove myself from my life and get grounded & refuel spiritually. And that's how I know that I've passed the test - not when I fly through the challenges without the emotions or tears or whatever comes up, but when I recognize the imbalance and pause long enough to recalibrate.
Recalibration is tough. And as I dive into my book tomorrow I'll be taking this into account. Seeing which of the Nine on my Inner Council needs attention and needs her vibration raised. Tomorrow - I'm going to dive into the meat of the book, and that's really scary.
And frankly, it's simply another test. Can I take the chaos in my life and still connect with my inner voice to write and create? I don't know but I plan on grading on a curve...
What do you do to recalibrate? What tests are you going to dive into this week?
