From above, everything looks smaller…..It’s much easier to get over something small.
When I’m overwhelmed with thoughts of stress or feel I cannot see past my present problem, I remember the picture I have of an Eagle flying above and remember that when I look at my problem from a different perspective, I see things differently and I find I have more clarity and a clearer vision to find a solution.
Whatever happens, it is important to be aware that we create our thoughts and allow images in that have a greater or lesser impact within us. When I learn to create thoughts of love, courage, trust and determination about any situation I am in, it allows each situation to unfold and I begin to work with it, rather than against it.
When I accept myself and the situation, it means I am allowing myself to feel what I am feeling at that moment. If I argue against it, I suffer. On accepting it, I become what I should be and that is vast, spacious and connected. When I accept it, I feel that I am in the right place, at the right time and I am doing exactly what I should be.
Out of the place of acceptance, a different action is created. An action that respects, joins together, opens, calms and embraces the situation. I know this is easier said than done, this is no easy task when we have been hurt or let down, but when we learn to practice this belief, we become less disappointed with others and our journey.

When we don’t accept rejection, insecurity, sickness, anger, fear or disapproval, we keep it locked within us and unfortunately it doesn’t go away but grows inside until you burst or get sick.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck try this:
Sit on the grass somewhere quietly. Take in a deep breath and inhale and exhale slowly three times. On the fourth breath, let out a loud OOOOMMMMM and feel your body relaxing. Then Imagine yourself being above this situation you are in and seeing it small. See yourself accepting this moment and this situation. Take another three breaths in and tell yourself “I am light, I am at peace with this situation” and see yourself resolving it.
What was, was, and has passed. It no longer is. Everything is a continuous change. It is the law of life, nothing is permanent. So embrace change wherever you can in your life and accept the law of life because when we do, we free ourselves and learn to fly like EAGLE.
