It has been a full 2 months since I last posted anything, and let me assure there has been ALOT that has transgressed. I've had time to really reflect on BE! where it is, where its going, and my personal journey of self love and how to live a bold, unapologetic life.
I have been going thru an intense period of growth...not physically of course, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually. In order to allow myself to just BE and experience the growth without the pressure of sharing everything with the world, I have wrote and recorded videos in the privacy of my own process, and have finally felt in my spirit that its' time to share some of the reflections and lessons I've stepped into and embraced.
So I want to chat with you today about "Intense Growth."
When I refer to intense growth I am referring to the intentional and anticipated journey one embarks on for any period of time for the purpose of transformation. When we live for any period of time in monotony and finally get tired of it, or when we get to a point where we are ready for a change in our life, typically we are requesting the universe to put us in circumstances for intense growth.
When one realizes that they are impatient, insensitive, lazy, unfit, in-motivated, impersonal, close-minded, or just stuck in any area of life, they will often say to a confidant or themselves, " I need to change." Some people even pray...please help me change. Well, what you seek is seeking you...and typically when it finds you, it will shake up your world.
When we ask for parts of us to change or improve, it is inevitable that circumstances will present themselves to challenge and mold us into the very state our hearts are desiring to be in.
What are some signs that you are going through an Intense Period of Growth?
7. Your gratitude increases for earlier times of growth. When growing, you reflect, and realize how every step of your journey has actually been connected and led the way to where you are now.
8. You become unrecognizable to yourself. As you move through the period, you begin to realize how your improved self is so different from your previous self. As the one who is seeking higher level of consciousness and emotional intelligence, you will always notice the shifts in you before others. You realize your thought patterns change. Maybe your internal reactions to others change. You realize you are not holding the same value on certain things that your previously did.
9. You become a more open person and student of the world. You seek teaching agents/tools that will educate and inform you on you journey. Because you know there is something or things you need to learn to improve and transform, you are more open to receiving feedback, to reading or watching content that helps develop your character or focus. You are more prone to be open to receiving recommendations, insight and prophesies from others, who may have keys to unlocking doors of understanding.
10.You are affirmed of your changes by the apparent shift in your environment, relationships, and behaviors. The proof is in the pudding. People will start to confirm your changes by stating what they notice about you (which ideally should be aligned with your desired improvement). You will attract new opportunities and be in different environments. Also, you realize that your days and what you do throughout the day, has changed.
I am grateful that while on a beautiful travelling experience over the of 2 months between South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Spain, I got to enter in an extreme vortex of growth. As a result, I can finish my book with clarity, work on some current projects, begin new projects, and have become so much more confident in myself and this path that I am to spread messages about self love and mental health awareness.
From one being desiring growth to another, know that any journey you go on will have its ups and down; moments of discomfort; moments of tears; moments of confusion. All those moments are the currency for metamorphosis. Embrace your transformation and periods of intense growth.
