In the middle of knowing that something new wants to come through, I must remind myself that I am allowed to change. I am even allowed not to know what this change is yet; first: to allow it. If you’d like to try enjoying the unfolding new beginnings in your season, too, I penned this affirmation for you.
You don’t always have to know how. You just have to know that you can.
I’ve found that simply being there for myself, learning to keep myself company like a friend, initiates the process of letting me be where I am—without needing to change anything (for the moment).
This is a practice that we can apply to the energy around us and the inspiration that, as I like to put it, wants to come through our lives, that wants to grace us with its presence. To me, inspiration is like a companion, an entity, an invisible but living being that greets us when we’re open, not forceful, and working, but not fighting.
Not just inspiration, either: any new change, especially positive changes, can be sensed before they manifest into physical form or visible realities. The “trick” is to tune in.
In a world that demands instant clarity, it might seem lackadaisical (or at the least, uncomfortable) to not push for an answer, but let me tell you: patient allowing is one of the most care-full decisions.You do not always need to know how you are going to change. If you feel ready for a sweeping change, try releasing the “how” and instead focus on how excited you are. Inspiration responds well to openness, patience, trust, and joy. inspire a friend
Here’s a simple affirmation I’ve been repeating when it comes to making sweeping changes in my life, which I am absolutely ready for: I am allowed to change. Rather than thinking that I need to know every step, that I have taken a wrong path, that I am wasting time, or that I have no idea what to do, I’m trying trust instead.
Trust has always been more helpful than regret, fear, or doubt ever has been.
Whether you’re ready and willing to leave something old, start something new, let go of something, take hold of something, break a habit, make a habit, finish a project, start a project, or live into your intentions, this is for you.
I Am Allowed to Change: I Allow Change, Naturally
I am ready for change, but I am willing not to force this change.
I do not need to know every step, but I can take my steps with care and trust that this path is mine.
I hear the whispers of change and so I listen, without demanding that they speak in a different voice. I listen deeper.
I listen with my heart and I feel my way through this new season of my life. May my fear be infused with love.
Life provides what I need and who I need when my soul is open and ready to receive.Inspiration gives its gems if you are willing to receive them without force, only devotion. tell a friend
I am willing to open my soul to the nuances of the invisible.
I am willing to sense what others may not sense. I am okay with tapping into the energy that others miss. I can even keep these gifts to myself until I am ready to share them with the world.
Patience is my practice. My life is always unfolding. I allow myself these graces.
Inspiration is a companion. I allow it to unravel in its own time. I place no demands on its will. I cultivate this relationship. I join this flow.The world may not be accustomed to patient allowing, but when you are, life expands: nature speaks, the mind sinks into the heart, everything seems to be on time. tell the world
I let change sweep through my life according to a larger, wiser plan than my own.
Here are some handwritten notes to reaffirm that change can be a beautiful thing.
