Chaos

Let’s imagine that your day seems to be getting worse with every ticking minute. It could be that since you got out of bed, everything seems to be working against you. Maybe the dog is sick, you aren’t feeling well yourself, you’ve called in sick to rest if you are employed, or canceled all your day’s appointments if you are self-employed. Let’s further imagine that all the major appliances in your house stop functioning due to an electric mishap, and you have to deal with your homeowners’ insurance company’s bureaucracy to get things fixed. Let’s also imagine that you had a horrible fight with your partner, your kids are sick, and a creditor made a mistake and double charged your account. Hence, you are short on cash. To make things worse, as you pull it together to go out of the house and solve some of these challenges, you discover that you have a flat tire; and you have absolutely no idea how to change a flat tire.

What do you do??

These are days that test our patience and force us to go within and retrieve our emotional and intellectual weapons. However, the great news is that no matter how bad the day seems, there is a part of you that remains untouched by the situation. That part, my friend, is your mind. You can use your mind to emotionally and mentally rise above any challenges regardless of how bad they seem: and this brings me to the 5 things you can do to deal with a chaotic day.

  1. Slow down.

This means that take your time as you resolve every issue, one after another without trying to chunk them up. Make a to-do list as things to do begin presenting themselves. Focus on one thing at a time. This will help you stay on top of the issues that are resolved, and the ones that need more time or resources.  A to-do list also has a way of making us feel accomplished as we mark off every task that we finish.

  1. Remember to Breathe.

    Breathe

By deep breathing you relax, which then gives you the clarity to deal with the issues you have at hand.

  1. Put on soothing music.

Let soothing or relaxing music play in the background, and your brain will start picking up on the musical notes which will then help you relax.

  1. Drink a lot of water.

The benefits of drinking water, especially in stressful situations, are obvious. Drinking a lot of water will keep you hydrated, focused and energetic.

  1. Don’t call anyone to tell them what you are going through.

When you call your friends or loved ones and start telling them what you are going through, firstly, you are wasting time. Secondly, they might make things feel worse for you. Therefore, trust yourself and know that you have the mental and emotional resources within you to solve the chaos. The only exception is if you are calling for professional help. As a matter of fact, if you receive a call amidst the chaos, don’t engage them, ask to call them back.

Remember, there is nothing out of yourself that has the power to disorient you. As long as you are still conscious, you can still tap into your internal resources to resolve any challenges. Furthermore, nothing lasts forever. Maintain your calm. Don’t worry. Everything will soon get back to normal. And even if it doesn’t, you have the human spirit that is always unconditionally fired up with the powers of perseverance, patience, and faith.  

“A calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence; that’s very important for good health.” Dalai Lama

Five Steps to Help you Stop Procrastinating and then Take Action.


take-action (1)

So, you have a brilliant idea, product or project that you’ve been evaluating, analyzing, and consistently re-thinking about. You’ve probably taken a lot of time establishing all the reasons why you can’t take action.

In your mind, you are 100% certain about everything that could go wrong. You have basically employed yourself as the biggest block towards achieving your desired goals.

The following five proven steps will help you get started.

Step 1: Establish what you want to achieve out of your goal.

This should be something internal, a feeling or state of being that you will achieve when you realize your goal. This process will help you get in touch with your internal benefits connected to achieving the goal. In this step, you are encouraged to explain how you will feel when you achieve the goal.

Step 2. Write down 10 reasons why you haven’t taken action.

Please don’t think about all the reasons why you don’t have any reasons that prevent you from taking action. At times we have so many excuses to the extent of developing more excuses to justify our excuses.

Step 3. Write down 20 reasons why you should take action.

By establishing more reasons to take action than not to, you dispel the later reasons. This process will also help you to tap into the reasons why you set your goal.

Step 4: Establish the first step you are going to take towards achieving your goal.

Step 5. Take ACTION.

It Doesn’t Matter

Many times the people you love the most will suddenly change their attitudes towards you. You may be on the other end of the spectrum wondering what might have gone wrong. But since they use actions to communicate, you are left in the bleak without any idea of whatever is going on.

So, what do you do?

Reconnect to the most important person in your world; which is you. You start focusing on you. You develop a more profound relationship with yourself. You religiously hold tight on your core values. You focus on the good things in your life.

Image

Remember; whatever is going on in your external world is mirroring your internal world. So, the idea is to go back within and raise your personal vibration. The rest really doesn’t matter; because once your vibration is fresh and vibrant, the people with energetic signatures different from yours, will automatically fall out of your life—which is a good thing.

Love and light.
