It takes one step at a time
Going through challenges, people who care about me, are asking how are you doing. My response will be, that I take it one day and one step at a time. This sounds way easier then actually stick to it, because everything that use to be normal isn’t at the moment.
Like right now, while I try to write this topic, my normal routine of typing with two hands is changed into a huge challenge. It forces me to a higher state of focus and awareness. Not being able to use my right hand, my brain had to make a shift again, in order to gain momentum in my left hand. Not just my brain has to adjust, this involves adjustment of my entire being.
Every aspect of my being is on high alert and affected. This causes issues that needs to be addressed. So what about taking it one step at a time? The desire to write is being complicated by lack of speed in my typing, with more errors as usual and a left hand recovering from surgery seeking for balance. So I came to this realization that whatever we need to change, no matter what, it takes one step at a time.
Either material or emotional, physical or spiritual, every now moment is about taking it one step at a time. Including our behavior, our mind patterns and belief system. There is no choice in the matter doing two things at a time. It will always be one thing at a time.
I guess there is an organism that is able to be multi tasked as well multi-dimensional. Yet that is not how I perceive my reality in this material world. Sure we can do a lot of things that makes it look like we are multi-tasking, able to do more than one step at a time. It is for good reason we advise others or ourselves to take it one step at a time.
Usually we use it in situations that need more attention in order to become aware. Or when we want to create something and want to go to fast, what to think about installing things without following the plan or schedule. Even our own body needs to follow a certain plan in order to make it function.
In order to find balance we also need healing work when it comes to any kind of wound, either physical or emotional, mental or spiritual. For all is connected with each other. There lies the need to be aligned together. When it comes to healing, there is also some kind of schedule of steps. You cannot clear some emotional disturbance without looking at its root cause.
Whatever might have been inflicted that caused a dis-balance, it affects all areas. So we can only take it one step at a time to define what it is that needs healing first. Cause and effect. Sometimes it goes back through our ancestors and ancient lineages. Certain patterns find its way from generation upon generation.
Healing also means awareness and learning, because we can learn to become conscious of our own internal patterns. Yet, this needs an act of determination and willingness to look deeper within. That is a first step, coming to the realization all is connected. Every emotion we have has a cause, or root to be discovered. This is not always deeply rooted, yet sometimes it is like peeling of layers.
To know something doesn’t automatically means you are ready to act on it. Actually most of the times there is the resistance to dive in deeper. Mainly because we have the tendency to avoid pain, on any level. Only if the wound is a constant factor and needs your attention, the choice to deal with it is up to us. It takes one step at a time to decide what to do, which way to go or where to go.
This time I cannot avoid the pain and not take a closer look caused by the surgery . it brings up so many challenges on every layer and area of my being. Physical pain is one of my triggers that makes me feel vulnerable as well losing my independency. It also is a tool for what it brings to surface.
Using this insight it allows me to take a deeper look at what is at hand. In my case literally, with the surgery on my left hand this summer and now my right hand. Then I realized something. My dominant hand is my right hand, left side is my male energy line, which is pretty strong developed being pro-active, analytic. My left hand is the female energy line, which stands for being receptive, open, nourishing.
To me it always has been easier to give than to receive. So what happened internally, the need to balance out both equally is a lesson to be learned. Already conscious about it, I have made many steps throughout my life to go through the challenges and experiences. What I also learned is, that my life challenges are always been triggered through pain.
It is my way to take it one step at a time breaking the shelf so to speak. The cracks reveal new insights I can address if I choose so. It is my wake-up call so to speak to take it up to the next level. This time, it is all about alignment. Not just my 2 hands again, yet also what they represent to me on various levels. The most challenging process in this is using the emotions as steppingstones to new awareness.
In order to do so, I can only take it as it comes. No forcing the issues, for that will only cause more resistance. No controlling of what is to come, in order to have a false sense of being on top of it. This will only block the flow of energy. Not being passive-aggressive or pro-active in the desire of moving through the process as fast as possible.
Which means literally, take one step at the time in this present moment. My body as well my emotions are my teachers, to learn and grow in its own time. Enjoying the peaceful moments, and allowing the issues that needs to be addressed in order to bring in healing. On all levels one step at a time.
And so it will be done.
