Daily Nugget #56

fish out of water.

 

i’m floppin’

like a fish tossed on shore.

how did i get here?

a minute ago i was just swimming along

all peaceful

then BAM

i’m ¬†floppin.

 

wtf.

 

my extremes are extreme.

TOTAL bliss

to

what feels like:

The Dark Night of the Soul

just like that.

i must not be stable.

or

i’m just fine.

and

riding the cosmic waves that are now

consistently coming thru my life.

one minute i’m taking deep, cleansing breaths

the next

i’m gasping.

 

so today, when i woke gasping

from an otherwise peaceful night

i sat next to my alter.

i breathed. i connected.

i questioned.

‘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.

yippee!

‘the principle of surrender, breaking old patterns’

yay!
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.

ah.

self-imposed limitations?

acceptance.

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).

 

the solution?

accept what is.

it is what it is.

and

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

to

follow your inner guidance.

 

today.

do a handstand or headstand

or

bend over and look thru your legs.

stay there for a few.

breathe.

 

know that being a fish outta water

is just a pattern

one meant to be broken.

break it!!

 

be free, people.
