Growing Pains • Breathe Through It
Some periods of growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognise we are growing. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled across a book or a person who explained to us, that we are in fact in the process of change, of actually growing more than we ever have before.
- Alice Walker
Growth is uncomfortable because you have never been here before, you have never seen this version of yourself. You have never felt this way, as you open new doorways and create pathways for your being to evolve and rise. Growing pains emerge as you carve space for you to come back to who you truly are, and surrender to shedding the layers that no longer serve you. The radiant inner glow of your true Self beams with unconditional love, through all your moments of light and darkness, and through all those tender times you choose to come home to you. Every act of self-nurture and love is you choosing to come home. Be patient, loving and compassionate. Healing takes time and we must honour the process with patience and respect. Growing pains come with heightened sensitivity, tenderness in our heart and intense moments of feeling the most fragile and vulnerable right before we are birthed into our new armour of strength and resilience. Often growing pains are the most painful right before deep transformation blossoms. Hold space and breathe through it, honour you emotions with integrity.
BREATHE THROUGH IT
Keep releasing, forgiving, transforming, letting go, building and rising. In the space which brings the most discomfort is where we sow the seeds for transformation. On the other side of temporary discomfort is nothing other than healing and stepping into your power. Allow yourself to just be as you are in the present moment, and to which ever emotion is flowing through your being. Surrender to the sadness and tears, or surrender to the joy and laughter- just let yourself be. Trust the process, trust in divine and most importantly trust in yourself.
