So what to do when you've hit the elusive cement floor? Take it all in, don't hide from it, let it be what it may be. Felling the pain and going through the wave is important. Through deep pain is transformation, it is the way we can find ourselves again and discover the things we are meant to be doing. Ask yourself what is this here to teach me? It may be hard at first, when you are freshly still in it, picking away at the scab. Find beauty in just being, in not having all the answers. There is this beautiful thing that happens when sadness comes along, at least for me, I felt like I was floating around truly as I am. I wasn't worried about what other people thought of me, of being too emotional, heck of even crying at the coffee shop that one day, I was being human and honest and there is so much beauty in that.
The magic part, yes I am getting there. You see the important things more clearly, your dreams come to life and creativity bleeds out of you. Meditation is and always will be my saving grace, it is the way I can quiet my mind long enough to hear some answers. It is where I can feel the pain and it be ok. You can discover your next move through meditation, to sift through the chaos. It takes practice and patience but it will come easier, just remember that meditation can be anything you make it, there's no real wrong way to do it. It is a moment in your day that you can say "hey I am going to be kind to my thoughts, I am going to choose the ones that soothe me."
