Reactivity indicates that something is ready to be healed. View moments of emotional intensity as distractions created by the mind and purposely choose to draw your attention inward. The process of reflection and awareness creates a space in which a transformation can occur.
Quieting the mind is a skill that grows stronger with practice. The mechanisms of the ego include complaining, blame, worry and regret. Growth calls upon us to do things differently; therefore, each time you can break through a repetitive thought pattern, recognize that you are becoming more aware.
The light of your consciousness transforms all that it shines upon. Each time we turn toward our own shadows we see a little more clearly. You may ask, “What is this?” as a way to broaden your perception. Your willingness to go inward indicates that you are ready to cross the threshold into new awareness. Take a breath and draw in unconditional love and the essence of pure potential. Feel every cell of your body awaken with new vitality and a joy of being. This is the moment of transformation.
