As some of you know, last week I came down with a nasty cold. We all know this mama ain’t got time for that! On top of already growing a human, this took me back a hot second. It was bad, I was DOWN.
Whenever something like this happens to me now, I always ask myself “what is my body trying to tell me?”.
Of course in this situation, I thought.. rest. I need rest. I need more balance. I need to let go of a bit more, surrender and trust more. But I already knew this and was working on it. I felt I had this part under control. So what the heck?
This “cold” also came after a tough week of all the emotion, drama and hard conversations.
With a week ahead looking a bit like…
3 events I happened to be hosting
A deep dive into new marketing & strategy with my team.
New focuses and direction that I was feeling AMAZING about after some tougher days.
Readiness & eagerness to dive into a good month of exploration on something bigger I was being called to.
Incredible connection and service to my clients.
Everything was coming together and I was ecstatic and feeling so good!
So it got me thinking, is this my body telling me to rest OR is this the B.S. (the big snooze as Jen Sincero would refer to it as) or an upper limiting issue that Gay Hendricks speaks so brilliantly on.
Sometimes our mind & body need rest and I know that but in this scenario, I felt that these were all the signs of upper limiting. I was ready and anxious to dive into a higher meaning, purpose, work, strategy and just as it is all coming together- shit starts to fall apart.
The cold that knocks me off my feet.
The drama in my business.
The toilet that overflowed my house with 2 inches of shit on a day when all I wanted to do was relax and rest.
When you learn to be more conscious in your life, it is easier to navigate and understand what is really happening. Tuning into your body. Managing your mind. Listening to the signs all around you. Most of the time there is something bigger happening and we just have to trust that it is there for a reason, to guide us even when we are like WTF. Understanding that when you go higher, your EGO is going to go low and TRY to hold you back.
Take a break, listen to what you need, nourish yourself and then GET BACK AT IT. Your EGO is there to keep you safe in your cage, freedom and your dreams are on the other side:)
Ain’t nothing going to hold me down or YOU!
