Is It You?

Updated: Jan 30, 2019



There are those times in your life when you come to an impasse. No matter what you do to help yourself (extra sleep, herbs, homeopathic remedies, exercise, therapy) you just can’t feel better. You feel like you’re not yourself and you’re days are consumed with emotion. You may have gotten to this place slowly or abruptly but now that you’re here, what do you do? It’s time to ask:


What is the Universe trying to tell me?


When you are at your impasse, it is clear that something has to change. Sometimes it’s easier to try to change yourself than change your situation. Perhaps you have a terrible boss who treats you with disrespect and harsh words. There is never a day when you go into the office and feel calm. So you think “The Universe is telling me to practice self care and get out of here!”, so you do. Fortunately you find just the right position for equal pay at a lovely company. As time passes, you come to find out that your new boss starts treating you with disrespect and similar harsh words! You are now feeling the EXACT SAME WAY that you felt when you were at your old job! How can this be? (And thinking back, this is the EXACT SAME WAY you felt as a child when your parents disrespected each other or you!). So you polish up your resume and hit the pavement again only to find this same pattern repeated a third time. So what is the lesson? Maybe it’s time to ask that question again:


What is the Universe trying to tell me?


What is the Universe trying to tell you? You’d think that if you were the person in this scenario you would see what’s going on, but it’s not always easy. It will feel different with each boss and sometimes your brain will tell you it’s just your bad luck. It’s not. The Universe is trying to tell you that there is something here that you need to heal.


If you look, you might be able to see that this is happening in your life right now. You have a close relationship that is tough - sometimes you feel disrespected and sometimes you use harsh words with each other. Then you dig a bit deeper to find out that there are a few relationships in your life that, when they get challenging, you feel the same way - disrespected. (Or unlovable, unwanted, unheard, not good enough, etc.). Often these types of feelings come up when your relationship with your children gets tough.


If you are willing to be brave and curious, you can see that these are the places where you can find the most healing, where you can learn the most about yourself. They are our mirrors - windows into the patterns that keep us from being our most true selves.


These places can be tricky and we can feel tricked by them. Sometimes you’ll want to escape - like the person with the disrespectful bosses. Escape is always your choice but the important piece is to do the healing necessary to break the pattern.


Your own intuition will tell you if it’s time to make a big change. If your thoughts are always spent on figuring out the situation you’re in, dealing with your anxiety or trying to “fix” yourself so that you can endure, then perhaps THAT is the biggest message from your intuition that you can get. If your intuition is leading you down a path that requires a big change, your whole system can begin to resist. It requires some discernment whether your feelings are in response to the actual situation or to avoiding what you know in your heart is right. Can you both heal and remain in your current situation? Can you change your relationship to your current reality or does your current reality need to change?

Homeopathic remedies can provide the gentle shift that’s necessary when our resistance arises. They can also provide the clarity needed to look into the mirror of the situations surrounding you and see what needs to be healed. Healing is not always easy, pretty or linear but it is always necessary.
