Well, here in England it’s officially Autumn and by the end of this month the clocks will’ve changed and we will have an hour less daylight each day. Not a pleasant thought on the surface of it, but you only have to look around at this time of year to see the beauty of the changing of the seasons and the natural cycle of life and it all feels ok again :-).
Ghouls, Ghosts and things that go bump in the night……
October is, of course, the time for all things spooky and the supermarkets are full of outfits to be worn for trick or treating. My children used to love the 31st of October and the collection of sweets they managed to accumulate on their rounds!
But while these particular demons are a figment of our imagination and a product of old sheets and face paint, some of the demons we encounter in our lives can feel very real.
Our Personal Demons……
These little nasties are of our own making and worm their way into our heads and our lives. Affecting the way we can feel joy, self love and that vital connection to all around us.
We all have our own personal favourites and the trick is in the taming of them.
Easier said than done sometimes, but the answers are always out there. There is always somebody who holds the key and can help us to unlock our barriers.
If one of your particular little meanies is holding you back from reclaiming your space and feeling that lightness and freedom and joy that comes from knowing control is possible, then help really is at hand.
Perhaps you’ve felt like this for a long time, perhaps only for a few months, but you can see the piles of “stuff” growing and the backlog building.
Perhaps you have your own business and the mess in your office is stopping you from being as productive as you know you can be and really want to be.
Perhaps it’s the pressure of everyday family life and all of its responsibilities that make you feel as though there just aren’t enough hours in the day for you to fit it all in.
Or the weight of memories holding you in one place and the fear of moving forwards….
Whatever the particular way you know you are being held back, I want you to know that you are not the only one who has that particular nagging little imp on their shoulder and you are not alone :-).
If you were to start to talk to others about what you were struggling with, you would find that everybody has something they get stressed about, no matter how much of a “swan” they seem on the surface!
When people attend my workshops the first thing that strikes them is that they are not the only one in the room who feels the way they do. They are not alone in the difficulties they feel and the habits they form and this is so liberating!
So, talk to others….share what is troubling you and the very support that you feel you need might end up being right in front of you.
Now is the time, don’t wait “for Christmas”, ” the New Year” or any other artificial starting point. Grasp life now and move towards where you want to be :-).
Enjoy the darker nights and the shorter days and all of the beauty and time to reflect they bring with them.
With love and light to you and all of those you love at this very special and beautiful time of year.
If you would like to contact me to talk through how I might be able to help you move forwards and dispel the demons, email me now at firstname.lastname@example.org and book your free, no obligation half hour discovery call. We’ll look at where you are now, where you would like to be and the possibility of us working together to get you there.
A Testimonial from somebody who realised she wasn’t alone in the way she was thinking and the challenges she was facing:-
“Thanks again for a brilliant session…….the lovely group of ladies you brought together have helped me to see a few different perspectives” H from Oxfordshire.
