Creating the space to slow down and reconnect to ourselves when we feel insecure or groundless is usually the last thing that we want to do and is almost always the most supportive action.
It might seem counterintuitive in the moment because when confronted with uncertainty or something that feels uncomfortable, our first impulse is usually to move more quickly to find a solution.
It’s okay if the resolution isn’t immediate.
It’s also okay if you need to take some time to pause before you feel clear enough to move forward.
When we make decisions and take action without first giving ourselves the time and space to reconnect with ourselves and tune into what feels most true in the present moment, we usually don’t receive an outcome that feels as aligned and nourishing as it could be.
Sometimes, it’s necessary to find a quick solution and take fast action to mitigate the effects of something dangerous or threatening.
The vast majority of the time, when our fear and threat responses become engaged, we aren’t in the midst of a life-threatening emergency.
A part of us might feel like it’s going to die if we don’t quickly take action, especially when we are navigating something that feels confronting and exposing.
Trust your pace.
Trust in your timing.
Notice what happens when you create ample space to listen and an allowance for things to naturally unfold without needing to fix, change, or control the outcome.
Regardless of what happens and what the final destination looks like, everything unfolds with much more effortless grace and flow when we don’t override the pace we need to move to stay connected with ourselves and the ground of our inner guidance and truth.
