Daily Nugget #56
fish out of water.
like a fish tossed on shore.
how did i get here?
a minute ago i was just swimming along
my extremes are extreme.
what feels like:
The Dark Night of the Soul
just like that.
i must not be stable.
i’m just fine.
riding the cosmic waves that are now
consistently coming thru my life.
one minute i’m taking deep, cleansing breaths
so today, when i woke gasping
from an otherwise peaceful night
i sat next to my alter.
i breathed. i connected.
‘what the HELL is going on?!’
why can’t i stay in the peaceful place permanently?!
then i pulled a card
as i so often do.
The Hanged Man or Suspended Person.
The Hanged Man is the pattern breaker.
‘the principle of surrender, breaking old patterns’
this fish out of the water thing is a PATTERN!
i can do this. i can work with this!!
i did a headstand, obviously.
to get a new perspective.
these self-imposed (yes we do this to ourselves. no idea why.)
make us feel bound in impossible situations
with no way out.
(this doesn’t have to be an external situation.
we can be bound by belief).
accept what is.
it is what it is.
then FULLY TRUST IN YOUR OWN NATURE.
what the heck does that mean?
trust in you!
trust in your journey.
trust in your resourcefulness.
trust in your ability to change and grow
follow your inner guidance.
do a handstand or headstand
bend over and look thru your legs.
stay there for a few.
know that being a fish outta water
is just a pattern
one meant to be broken.
be free, people.
