There are many levels of anxiety and of course, there is the good kind and the bad kind. The good kind is almost always involved when we are in sync with the divine plan. But when we are not in sync with the divine plan the anxiety is the bad kind. The one where your shoulders feel stiff and the breathing is as shallow as can be. A void bottomless pit in the body or the fidgety leg syndrome – however it shows up, you know its not good if you are not happy with it. And if you are not at peace with the decisions you are taking, can you truly be in sync with the divine plan?
Over the years, I have often seen decisions being made with the most logical and rational process. However, when it is time to execute those decisions, the emotions show up. The same emotions weren’t considered while making the decision. Sometimes, our mind will convince us that we can work with or work around our emotions. But emotions can be powerful and stubborn when they are in control the logical mind is out first. And then, these emotions have control over the body – the breath to start with. Anxiety is a bunch of emotions put together. For each one, it won’t be the same – yet it will have similar effects.
It is always important to be aware of the body because emotions can be hard to keep track of at times. If a certain part of the body feels stiff, address it. Is it the anxiety or is it something else?
When making decisions, I know I am in sync with the divine when I close my eyes and feel at ease when I think of the choice I’ve made. If my shoulders feel stiff, or my legs feel numb, or my breath is shallow, I know I have to re-evaluate. Time and again, I’ve seen that the divine plan – if you are open to it, is of least resistance. When you are on the right path, things will fall into place with enough effort. But if it’s not the divine path, no matter how hard one tries, there will always be something falling out of place.
