We are all going to have some bad storms, are you weatherized?
When the rainy & stormy season sets in, we need to be ready. If you live in cold weather, you know exactly what I am referring to, and you can relate. Fall is the season to get your car and home weatherized from the elements of nature. And while you are at it, I invite you to check in on your mind and spirit. Are they also weatherized? Are they ready for any weather? Especially the bad weather?
As humans, we all experience bad spiritual and mental storms…the question is, when will they arrive, and will we be ready when they hit?
Let’s take Christmas and the holiday season, for instance. The holiday season has approached, and our troubles and lives continue. Some may be dealing with financial issues, health, or relationship problems…and those troubles don’t disappear over the holidays. Others during this season are longing for connection and feel lonely or depressed. Some fill their time with holiday parties, shopping, and ways to feel connected. But then, disappointment arrives because of the expectations created.
So how do we weatherize our spirit and mind so that we can weather the storms of disappointment, stress, anger, health issues, and so on?
The answer is empathy for ourselves, others, and the circumstances around us. We can access empathy and compassion by asking ourselves, what is this situation teaching me? What gifts or opportunities is it offering me? What’s the most loving way I can respond to this situation before reacting?
We need to explore all factors and consider alternatives to disappointment, stress, anger, or despair. And we need to seek the wisdom within us and ask ourselves, at the end of my life, looking back, what would I want to remember about this situation? These questions will allow us to take positive action.
No matter how bad the weather gets and how many disappointments, we need to be ready so that we do not drown in despair. Getting ourselves prepared with mental fitness to bring in our Sage will help us cope with weathering any storm. Because when, not if, but when the storm hits, preparation will beat procrastination.
Here are some tips to get your mind, body, and soul prepared for the season:
- Consider taking a spiritual practice to quiet your mind.
- Start a gratitude practice. At the end of each day write down at least three things you are grateful for.
- Movement: Go for walks or exercise.
- Let go of expectations and let life and others surprise you.
- Stay in the present. The future brings anxiety and the past brings depression.
