You have to do it by yourself,
but you don’t have to do it alone.

There are times in life when things can get tough.

We can lose a job or a family member. An investment can go down the tube or we can get in an accident that can affect us physically. We never know when we can fall on hard times.

This happened to me in 2010. My wife and I decided mutually to seperate and I lost my marriage and a beautful rural property that I'd spent many years building up. A good friend of mine gave me a room in his house to stay in for a while. I began a new relationship and then moved into a smaller rental house with other roomates. It was rough because I was country boy, used to a lot of land and trees and a river flowing by.

 

Broken egoThen less than a year later I had a blood vessel rupture in my head and I couldn't work. I almost died.  Even though I was in a wonderful new relationship I felt like everything else in my life had fallen apart.

My doctor ordered me not to do too much until my brain healed and I ended staying in bed a lot being depressed. I had no stable income, I didn't know if I'd be able to do the work I loved and I worried a lot. I cursed God for letting me have a taste of my life purpose and yanking it away. I couldn't even yell and scream at God because it would hurt my head. (LOL). That made me even more pissed. It was hard on my partner. 

Maybe you have been there or know someone who has.

Here's what I did. Maybe if you ever encounter a lot of instability in your life this might help.

The first thing I did is:  I accepted my situation. I noticed that no amount of not wanting things to be the way they were, changed anything. Cursing God and all his angels and being angry at my life only made me feel worse.

Stable Points

Then I decided to create some stable points within the instability I felt helpless to change. I set-up a routine. I got up at a certain time, set my meal-times and an afternoon rest. I started my day with a bit of stretching, meditation, jounaling, a bath and shaving. I set up a time for a short walk.  I set up some regular appointments with holistic therapists. I created a routine before bed. I cooked and ate good food. I signed-up at a gym and started to go 3 times a week.

I noticed the people in  my life that could give me stable support: my doctor, my family and friends and the love of my partner.

 After a few months of a good routine things started to shift for me as I started to have a greater sense of being in control. I felt a bit more secure. My brain was healing and I felt like getting a part time job just to see if I could work again. I ended up getting a job at Home Depot in the tool rental department.

Even though it was minimum wage I felt good that I could at least do something. I'd have a vague sense of satisfication putting on my steel-toed working boots and heading off to work. I remember smiling at the opportunity to be a regular Joe. I was feeling more in control of my life.

Then it occurred to me that maybe, this disaster needed to happen because I needed time to finish my book. So I began setting up another routine time of writing during the day. Over the next few months, I wrote a major portion of Awakening the Guru in You. Setting up that structured time got the writing juices to flow and I started to feel my life coming back.

The Turn Around

Then something remarkable happened. Employees at Home Depot started coming up to me and without prompting started telling their problems in private during breaks between customers. I used some of my Clearing techniques to counsel them and I started to become known as a "great guy to talk to". I realized that I could not escape from being a helper. It was in my nature to be that way.

I looked at this as a sign from the universe. Maybe my life as a helper was not over. Maybe I was ready to go back to work giving retreats and doing my coaching and mentorship. So I began to take on some clients and organize some one day retreats again. This started to grow and within two months I quit Home Depot and got back to doing the work I loved with a finished published book in my hands. I still had some brain impairment but I was significantly healed.

Why do I tell this story?

Well I am hoping that if you ever get to a point, where your life falls apart that maybe this story might inspire you, to find and create some stable points in your life... to know that no matter how insecure life gets that there are always areas of life that we can establish as stable, whether its people, routines or situations.

And as we set these up, we can find refuge in them. These can then provide a conduit for new energy and creativity to enter into our lives as the old things we depended on, fall away and a birthing of a renewed life can arise. Even when we lose control and things fall apart, there are always areas in our life that we can stabilize. These can then become the foundation for building a new home for our dreams.

Be you to fullness

After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drosedebamenspellhome@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CAN NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT YOU SIR HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS:drosedebamenspellhome@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEM.,..,.,.,.,.,;;

I have been married for 10 years with 2 kids. I met my husband when I was just 14 years old in high school. We have been through thick and thin as well as many of life's major milestones through the years that we have been together. I still see that 17 year old hottie when I look at him all these years later. We have had ups and downs, shouting matches, make up sex, and disagreements. But as we have approached midlife- something has changed in him.After being in relationship with him for years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I pleaded with him, I made promises but he refused.

Testimonials

“I had this feeling in my chest - my chest was very big and spacious and wide and open. Everyone and everything was beautiful. It was a wonderful feeling, and I felt so me, like I was residing in my own groove, that I was home, and that everything was just as it was supposed to be, comfortable, warm, safe”

—Beth Clark,Yoga/Meditation Instructor, Kingston, Ontario
