Change is one of the scariest and most amazing forces you can experience. It is inevitable and when you shift your perspective, it can be awe-inspiring. With the seasons shifting soon, it is a reminder that change is good, and when you align yourself with nature, you welcome growth and allow expansion to occur. Here are four ways to help navigate this journey.
Shift Your Focus
Everything in life happens for us, not to us. When things don’t work out, it can be hard to understand in the moment. However, it will always lead us to where we ultimately need to be. Shifting your focus on how the situation is aiding you will not only ease your worries, but will make it easier to find solutions. Change is opportunity in disguise — think of it as a metamorphosis where you will come out happier, wiser, and more empowered.
Choose Comfort and Care
Change is also a perfect time to turn inwards and take care of yourself. What makes you feel the best and most supported? Think of a person you can spend time with, an activity you like to do, or a song you can play that will remind you of the good times. Use the stability around you for support. When venturing into the unknown, it is important to remain strong and positive while also feeling the motions that come your way. Find the little things that make you happy.
Embrace Crystal Energy
Using crystals and gemstones is an amazing way to keep yourself grounded during a period of change. You can wear a Quartz crystal while thinking of your intention, like “I am grounded,” or “I am attracting situations that serve my highest good.” Another beneficial stone, Turquoise, aids in grounding, guidance, and protection. Amethyst is great for promoting happiness, calmness, and healing, and Red Jasper grounds emotions and helps ease stress and anxiety.
Behold Herbal Incenses
Another amazing helper during change is herbal incense or smoke cleansing. From the Celts to the Native Americans, the power of plants has always been extremely healing. Getting pre-made incense, resins, and bundles are a quick and effective way of uplifting the energy around you, but you can also create your own unique blend! Think of herbs, spices, and flowers you have around the house — rosemary, sage, cinnamon, roses, etc. You can dry them out, craft them in a bundle held together by yarn, and light them. Whatever you choose, let the gentle and earthy-smelling smoke cleanse your world and uplift your spirit.
By embracing change, you are inviting whatever awaits you next to enter. Embrace your own strength and go steadfast in your journey.
