Five days into the New Year and the holiday glamour is almost gone. Visioning, dreaming, manifesting – great. But what about the hard stuff: the beloved friend in the hospital still undiagnosed, credit card bills coming in, and work projects demanding time and attention? What about the weird energy Monday that left you and everyone around you off balance the entire day? What about lost debit cards and flat tires – and all the ways life can go awry. How do you hold the vision then?
You don’t try to. You let go and stay present to everything. You feel the frustration, disappointment, and fear. It’s uncomfortable, but it’s part of the process and essential to minimize damage and function effectively. Emotions are not good or bad. They are information, powerful energy that affects our whole system. Emotional charge turns our story from black and white to Technicolor.
Yes, watch the movie, all the way to the end. See if you can identify any illusions. Sometimes there aren’t any. We must stay with the emotional process until it is done with us. By listening to our emotions, we see more clearly how the story impacts us and whether there is something we need to do. When we honor and process our emotions intentionally, we become clear about what needs to happen next. Then, when things quiet down a bit, we can go back to that dream and feel it all over again. It’s all part of the process.
