There will be times when we find ourselves adrift. It is part of the ebb and flow of life, and an invitation to anchor ourselves once more.
Eventually I came to realize that there is nothing ‘wrong’, just something inside us that requires our attention.
Our thinking mind usually tells us we have to figure out what’s wrong and take action to fix it. It isn’t surprising that we think this way. Over the years, there are expectations for us to achieve, lead others or reach a goal, and so we have become conditioned to see life in this way.
It is the loss of connection to our inner being that brings about a lack of centeredness and feelings of being adrift. When our heart, mind and spirit are out of alignment, we must tune inwards, rather than start analyzing options. Our inner being is trying to communicate to us, not through the head, but through our heart.
The mind says, “I need to do something to feel more in control”.
The heart says “Remember me. Where have you been. I miss you.”
To find our way back to center requires us to pause and notice the quiet voice within us. To find our middle ground.Take a moment to close your eyes and sit with this question: “What is my heart telling me?”
And listen for guidance.
Then phrase words for yourself as a guiding mantra. They may be something like: “Let my breath be my anchor.” “Let compassion be my anchor.” “Let the opening of my heart be my anchor.” “Let trusting be my anchor.” “Let choosing what I love be my anchor.”
Feeling adrift is an invitation to come home to yourself and to your heart.
When you center here, the way is clear.
