Red Skies

Growing up in a fishing town, in a family of harvesters the saying ‘Red skies at morning, sailors take warning’ always had real meaning for me.
.
I love the red skies at dawn but certainly respect the water and the risks that are taken to bring in our favourite seafood.
.
Lately this saying has taken on another meaning. This past week, I’ve been facing stressors and challenges that in the past have sent me into a tailspin. I do have moments of fear and panic but I keep coming back to how I want to show up.
.
I don’t have to quake in the face of a storm. I don’t have to give time or energy to the fear and the frenzied energy it brings. I can face the storm and be completely untouched, be completely calm. I can even choose joy and enthusiasm. .
This largely comes from my belief that I am unlimited. Nothing, aside from death, can destroy me or take me out. I can come back from any disaster or mishap. It may not be quick or easy but I sure as hell can come back.
.
I have unshakeable faith in myself. I know I have my own back. I trust myself to get through unscathed.
.
With that as my mentality, what is there to fear? What is there to panic about? What storm exists that I cannot survive?
.
This self-confidence and emotional resilience has been a huge part of my personal metamorphosis. It’s an integrated part of what I believe to be true about the world, about myself and how I get to experience the world. It all comes down to choice.
.
I’m human. I still have moments where the fear creeps in and I find myself giving in to the panic. Then I remember that is now how I want to show up, I remember my truth and I bring myself back to peace and calm and confidence. That’s not a failure. That is the process. That is the victory. That is the practise.
.
The same is possible for you my friend. I cover this in my new course, Metamorphosis: Mindful Transformation. All the details are on my website (link in bio). The course officially opens September 17.
.
I love you.
I believe in you.
You’ve got this!
