The way that our society operates puts many in a place where they don’t live, they simply exist.
The Covid pandemic has put people in the most unique situation. It gave them an opportunity that has not been there for generations. The chance to stop and take stock.
Some people were put in a situation where they had to work when most did not. Many were furloughed or even lost their jobs. Most unable to see family and connect with other humans in any form of social contact.
People had time to think, to reflect, to stop the hamster wheel and really take a good look at their lives.
For some, this caused an awakening to happen. A realisation came that there is something more to life than working to live and battling through one drama or trauma to another.
An awakening that brought about a deep feeling inside, a knowing that you, the individual, and you alone had to go within to make change happen to improve your life.
The start of that awakening path may have led you to a crystal shop, or a meditation group or a yoga class and so your journey begun.
Following the path of this awakening brings you closer to your true self. It helps you to get rid of any false, unworthy ideas about yourself and allows you to walk onto the path of your greatest potential, one that you may not yet be aware of. This happened to a client of mine who was drawn to yoga, to begin with and followed Adriene Mishler https://yogawithadriene.com The guidance that my client got through doing Adriene’s classes led her to also meditate. She began feeling change happening within her and she knew deep inside that she had to continue to work on herself. Doing yoga created a shift in her mind, body, and spirit balance.
The guidance came from her true self. Yoga and then meditation kick-started her inner search for her true self. The flood gates then opened she realised what she wanted to change to improve her life.
This process of awakening can be very daunting for many. Facing that life is not what you hoped, realising that the traumas of the past that you simply buried must be faced again, incredibly hard. However, you true self guides you to do it anyway! An awakening journey does not need to be done alone or in isolation. At this time some beautiful communities are coming together to support one another through the awakening.
There are lots of wonderful guides and teachers to support you along the way. Be guided by your true self to seek them out, to connect with the people who will really help you along your path.

Once you start down your awakening path, you will realise that it is impossible to go back to being the outward persona you were before. You feel incredibly drawn towards a future you and it suddenly becomes completely unacceptable for you to be the old you. The only way is forwards as you journey to your true self.
