In March this year life gave us an opportunity to retreat from our busy rat race, called Life.
We have been told for years that soon, big changes will come and will completely change life the way we know it. And still we were taken by surprise.
After years of being a part time helping practitioner, last year I decided to become a full time coach and therapist. I'd been working hard to lay the foundation of a business, became self-employed, acquired some more certificates and accreditations, I've hired a business coach (investing all my saved money) and started building my strategy.
March was the launch month. Everything looked perfect, everything was finally lining up for me. I moved to Palma, at the beginning of March, to be closer to the buzz of life, to the opportunities, to events.
I had a signed contract, an amazing opportunity to work as a therapist for a luxurious Wellness Company, my first two retreats were coming up in April and I had two group-workshops booked in a few days in a local Spa.
I was super excited, thrilled to dive into my new city life and start living the life-style I'd been waiting for.
15 of March Spain goes into State of alarm followed by complete Lockdown and my dreams, hopes and plans fall to pieces.
The first few days were tough. Facing reality, that All is gone.
I was confused and disappointed, who wouldn't have been?
Then as a reaction and I think as a compensation, I started pushing myself and forcing myself in the new fashion of doing everything online. "Reinvent yourself", they were saying! So I tried to follow the New wave.
In the first few days I was beating myself up with all the: "I should..., I have to..., I need to...'s". But I just wasn't feeling it, it just didn't feel good.
So I stopped and decided to enjoy my lockdown. Do things I like doing, do things everybody is doing. So I did that. Watched Netflix for 2-3 days non-stop, read conspiracy theories for a couple of days, drank some wine and sunbathed.
It was fun but after a week I came to my senses and I heard my inner voice saying: "Ok, and now? What's next? What do you really want from life?"
And it was the day I went inside, I started meditating everyday, I joined online yoga classes (I'd never been a yoga lover before), I had uplifting and inspiring talks with my friends, I created a healthy routine, joined a 21 days abundance challenge and worked out all the fears, insecurity, worry and beliefs that were coming up as a result.
First time in my life I started to think long term. I mean in 10 years from now. It must sound silly or crazy considering the circumstances but it centered me. It gave me motivation and energy. It gave me hope. I got powerful guidance and insights through my meditations and a completely new future plan started to form in my imagination.
I became focused, present and energized. I new life started to unfold.
10 weeks later here I am, on my birthday feeling like a different person.
I've never been so sure and so confident in my life and this clarity naturally and effortlessly started to attract abundance and new opportunities in my life.
It was the best thing it could happen. An enormous blessing.
I'm endlessly grateful for my chosen path and for everything that enters in my life.
There are no good things and bad things, desirable and not desirable situations,
...there are only opportunities for growth.
