Catching our self on a downward wave!

Have you had a rough day? A day when you were presented with an unpleasant situation that went against your core values and you were triggered to react? We are all humans and I had a share of one such day recently. Someone I know exhibited behavior that I never expected from them. What did this do to me? The first few thoughts were -


How did this happen?

How did I allow this to happen?

Did I not know this person enough?

Why did this happen?

How can I fix the damage that has been done?

How can I heal this other person and make them feel more accepted so this does not happen in the future?


And I went into full reaction mode! Wait... I thought with years of spiritual practice I knew that we respond to the situations after collecting ourselves and do not react. But, through this experience, I realized that I could not catch myself before I reacted because the trigger was huge and through inner work, I had come to know myself enough that I had to speak up and question this behavior. But, I didn't know how to question this behavior when all my focus was on the damage that was done and my assumptions on how much effect this damage will have. And once I reacted to this situation, it put me in a vibrational state, where my inner power went down and I started attracting more similar situations. Fortunately, I caught myself when the wave just started turning downward. And I applied brakes. I said to myself that this is a huge calling for a reset. I had to prioritize my inner well-being. I decided to do a few things:


  1. Journal and pour all my thoughts on paper

  2. Take a day off from work and chores to allow me to relax and be present

  3. Talk openly about who I am and why I reacted to the person involved in the situation

  4. Ask them to explain more on why that happened and just listen with a pure and open heart

  5. Co-create a strategy for preventing this in the future.

And as I did all this, I started being more humorous and cheerful around everyone back again. Did I see the universe present more situations to test if I still react? Yes! Did I react? No! It was a fun game now for me and I said to myself, I am going to stand in my power of acceptance and presence and learn the lessons gracefully. And over the next few days, I saw more pleasantness come into my life! I started sensing inner gratitude and ease. Should I say, I learned a new lesson and also developed more acceptance for how to deal with situations when my core values are questioned?


Grateful for the contrast to be able to become more self-aware and raise my inner resilience and power! Does any of this resonate with you? If so, would love to hear your comments!


With Gratitude,

Dharshana

We hear that a lot. Look inward, find your answers from within. We meditate, practice mindfulness and start to believe we are looking inward. But what does looking inward truly mean? Our Mind is a pow

Funny title? Yes, for every situation you are in, you can choose to call head, tale or heart! The choice is always YOURS. The purpose of our head is well, it is a head, it stores memories, it calls ou
