The eleventh rough night is entrusted to the energy of November. Long gone are the long and warm summer days, our sociable life with all those casual and relaxed encounters and balmy evenings spent outside. November brings us dark and dull days. The plants let go of the last leaves and blossoms, nature retreats and is covered by a grey waft of mist. Like nature we have shifted our life inside into our warm homes. We often perceive November as dreary and unfriendly.
But nature follows calmly the change of season. She knows that every time has its meaning and accepts it gratefully. It starts collecting strength for a new beginning.
How can you follow nature?
The eleventh rough night is challenging you to follow nature's example to not only accept change but to welcome it and to open up to the new.
The only constant in our life is change. Unfortunately, our brain is wired to always see the negative, the danger, first. When our ancestors went through the woods, it was very important to look for dangers e.g. rampaging mammoth, hungry saber-toothed tigers, enemies of another tribe and more – their life was depending on it.
And it still works the same way today. Our brain does not differ between a Saber-toothed tiger or the threats of the unknown in our modern life. Our brain tends to see a potential threat in change and everything new, the unknown. Therefore, we have so many difficulties to welcome change into our life.
Rarely does it come to our mind, that change could also mean, that our relationship might get even better, or that we get a new and better boss, or the long-awaited chance, that gets us where we always wanted to be, etc. Even getting fired could mean the needed push to have the courage to finally follow our purpose, doing what we really like doing.
In case your mind starts listing all the negative, everything that could go wrong when thinking about change, tell yourself “STOP”. You don’t have a crystal ball, so how do you know what will happen in the future?
Instead ask yourself, “What could be the positive in this change? What could be good, or even better?”
The fact that change is something imminent, that nothing is set in stone, everything is constantly in the flow can help you to gratefully accept change. You can stay open and curious for what is to come. You can start enjoying everything and get into the flow. This way you not only reduce stress, but you also even access your energy and power potential. You strengthen your resilience and can take whatever life throws at you and make the best of it.
Change may be easy and can even be fun.
Enjoy your life and be well,
