Here in the UK, the weather has been even more of a topic of conversation than usual. We’ve been having wild storms, high winds, fierce rain…Trees falling blocking roads, houses without power, flash floods making routes impassable…But does stormy weather have to mean a stormy life?
Yesterday, as I was finishing up a therapeutic treatment with a client in my treatment room, I found myself looking out of the window. I noticed that in just a few short minutes, the stormy skies went from dark, ominous clouds, to bright, vibrant sunshine, to huge, heavy rainfall – while the sun was still shining!
And life can be a bit like that too, can’t it?
That “stormy weather, stormy life” has become a bit of a theme with my clients recently.
Many are feeling like their power has been wiped out by life’s storms, left in the dark about what to do or where to go next.
Or feeling like the road they were planning on travelling has been blocked or washed out completely, leaving them stuck.
So what can you do when you are feeling battered by life’s storms?
There are 4 potent questions from the Access Consciousness Foundation class which can give you clarity and strength in your choices.
1. What is this?
Asking this question opens up the awareness of what is. Is this just a temporary road closure? Is there a way round this that would work? Is this no longer the path that will work for you?
Simply ask the question, and allow yourself the awareness of what it is, especially as is relevant for you.
2. What can I do with it?
Is it time to roll up your sleeves and get to work clearing the tree from the road? Batten down the hatches and ride out the storm? Call in resources and outside assistance?
Allow yourself to relax, ask the question and be present with what shows up.
3. Can I change it?
You are a magical being. You are potent and gifted and can change and transform many things.
Some things it’s not their time to be changed. Some things require other elements to be in place before true change can occur.
Choose your change “battles”.
Putting energy into changing something or someone that’s not willing or able to change right now is like trying to clear a flooded village single handed with a small bucket.
This question gives you clarity of what’s actually possible.
4. If so, how can I change this?
Now comes the magic.
With this question, if you got a “yes” that this can currently be changed, allow yourself to be present with all the possibilities that present themselves to you.
Some will be loud and clear – you may suddenly notice that there’s a construction site just off the road that’s blocked by the tree. Right there, under your nose are all the skilled workers and equipment ready to clear the road so that you can travel forward with ease.
Some will be more like a feather touch, a whisper… you may overhear a conversation that sparks an awareness, you may see a headline that reminds you of a different possibility.
You may simply bump into an old friend who’s now a helicopter pilot and you no longer need the road to be clear as you’re off flying higher than you ever imagined!
With all of these questions, relax. Be present. Be patient.
The responses may come thick and fast, or it may take a while for clarity to present itself.
Keep asking. Relax. Be present.
These questions are about opening up space for something else.
They’re about opening you up to Your resources, Your magic, Your awareness of what else is possible.
No matter how fiercely the storms of life may rage, you, my fabulous friend, are magic.
No winds, no matter how strong, can blow the fabulousness of you away.
No floods, no matter how deep, can wash the magic out of you.
The storms of life may even uncover hidden gems, covered over resources, inner fabulousness that you may have forgotten or not even realised were there.
Fear not the storms of life, my friend.
You are stronger than they know.
