In a world full of chaos, is it possible to see the positivity in chaos? How can you maintain some semblance of positivity when every time you turn on the news, it's one gut-wrenching story after another? Life can be crazy at time! I had some recent events happen in my personal life that I had to address. God gives each one us test and trials. As I sit here, I triple count my blessings. I know that God has my back and I look at the positive in the chaos. You can not have a testimony without a test.
How can we transform any chaotic situation into one of inner and outer peace? How do we sit calmly and not get caught up in the hype? How do we not worry? How do we stay centered and grounded? How do we remain connected and rooted?
1. Prayer: is what gets me through every problem. This is the first thing I do. I try to calm my mind down, and I start envisioning the outcome I’d like to see happen. I don’t get attached to these ideas; I simply start imagining myself happy, healthy, safe, and loved, and I begin to visualize a friendlier situation and outcome.
2. Faith: Develop faith that things always turn out okay. In order for us to transcend our situation and create more peace in our lives, we have got to feel it. The best way for us to succeed at levitating above the mosh pit is to have faith. To have faith, we must believe with conviction that everything will be okay, even if we can’t currently see exactly how. When we possess faith, that inner knowing is a feeling that we have. We know. And we cannot evolve fully into the know until we have unrockable faith.
3. Support System: Get you a support system some that you can call and will speak positive over your life. One of the things you can do when attempting to navigate a bumpy crossroads is build an support system.
4. Choose to be positive: Did you know that happiness is a choice? It's not something that someone else can provide you. It's also not something that can be obtained by material things. It's something that you provide to yourself, every day. It's a choice, and it's your choice.
Life is dynamic and ever-changing. Events both good and bad are likely to hurtle toward us without a moment’s notice. We may be sailing smoothly along when suddenly we are thrown into a hurricane of sick loved ones, personal illness, financial troubles, and so on. When we pray, have faith, a strong support system, and choose to be positive. We can see the positive in the chaos. Life is full of stresses and the best way to find your calm is through your breath. It’s mobile, discreet and always available. It’s easy to get into the habit of taking a moment to stop and breathe in and out slowly when stressed and, once it’s a habit, it comes naturally.
