balance and being human: a new series on the balance blog
The intention of this blog is to be a resource for support.
You are a spiritual being having a human experience and sometimes that experience is painful and uncomfortable.
Being spiritual doesn’t mean you are immune to experiencing a life crisis or the emotions that flood in during and after the crisis.
You or someone you know, may be moving through the loss of an animal, friends and family transitioning, experiencing illness, and personal loss, which may include: job, relationship, home, bodily injury.
Spiritual awakening invites us to both connect deeply with others and grow as individuals. Most of us underestimate how deeply connected we are to one another. We've all experienced overwhelming emotions and grief.
Feeling emotions like, anger, guilt and shame, to name a few, doesn't make you a positive or negative person, or any less spiritual- it makes you human.
Balance consciousness is all the aspects of self-acceptance as you move through the human experience.
This week's question: "are there balance practices i can apply to times of transition?"
It's tough enough to navigate the depths of the situation you're experiencing or someone you care about is experiencing, so let's keep things simple. I love simple reflective questions that gently nudge your spirit. Curiosity keeps us mindful and open to new perspectives.
Here are a few reflective questions and simple balance practices you can apply to times of transition:
1. am i breathing?
I think it's important to notice your breath. Many people unknowingly hold their breath when they feel anxious or overwhelmed. The simple practice of focusing more on your breath can support the body and calm the mind during times of transition.

2. AM I WITHHOLDING COMPASSION?
Dealing with challenging life experiences while being mindful of the law of attraction has been a common theme lately.
Are you struggling with embracing painful emotions because you're afraid of attracting more pain? You're not alone, so let's talk about this common belief regarding the law of attraction.
The law of attraction responds to your intentions. Allow yourself room to embrace ALL your feelings by setting a clear intention to embody self-compassion.
During the most challenging and painful times in my life, I've attracted kind and compassionate people into my life while feeling my feelings.
Raising your vibration is not about avoiding painful emotions, just like the law of attraction is not about withholding compassion from yourself. Loving the parts of you that are struggling the most is a beautiful way to raise your vibration during times of transition.
You are a beautiful soul and every human part of you is lovable!
3. HOW WOULD I LIKE TO RECEIVE SUPPORT?
Not everyone feels like they have a strong support system even if they have family members or friends who offer to be a support in times of transition.
If you don't feel comfortable talking to your family or friends, consider talking to a coach, therapist, or spiritual counselor.
As you move through this time of transition, one balance practice is to be intentional about how you want to receive support. If you google "grief support", for example, the number of options may feel overwhelming. Narrow down your search. Do you prefer phone support? Group support? Online support?
Once you are clear about what works best for your needs, it's easier to integrate support into your life.
Remember, there's no need to push yourself too quickly as you move through your emotions.
Give yourself lots of grace and space.
Each post in the series will be tagged "Balance and Being Human". If you have a question, please share in the comments :)
Sending you lots of love!
