Embrace Uncertainty, It’s Ok!

 

Naturally, we don’t like uncertainty. Love, health, money, relationships, weight, jobs, death, it’s all uncertain. We are uncertain about everything. And its all OK. Although for most it’s not that easy. Uncertainty is uncomfortable. That level of uncomfortableness can be different form person to person. It’s a place we avoid visiting. Sometimes by creating a plan B or C.  Not knowing the outcome of certain things is stressful. Uncertainty can brings fears.  There isn’t a person that I’ve met that isn’t or hasn’t  been bothered by something they are uncertain about. Myself included. Now, if this relationship we have with uncertainty wasn’t so negative on us physically and emotionally, I wouldn’t be blogging about it. But it is. I’ve grown so much over the last 5 years and have had a positive experience embracing uncertainty. Letting go of a specific outcome or expectation has opened me up in ways I couldn’t imagine. It’s freed up space in my life to live it to it’s fullest. I’ve learned to relax into uncertainty rather than stress about it. I’ll be honest, it’s a practice for me like many other things, but its possible. And you can too.

Carrying the  fears of uncertainty is like having a shadow over you. Unwanted weight bringing you down. It creates the stress response in the body. This decreases digestion, calorie burning, and a physiologically, chemically and cellular wearing down of the weakest links in your body. Chronic low-level stress of uncertainty depletes the human system and leads to unwanted symptoms and behaviors. Especially around food. When we relax into uncertainty, stress releases and health happens! Science tells us that when we are in the relaxed state, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is stimulated and active. Wisdom happens. 🙂

So I invite you to practice accepting the uncertainties in your life and relax into it. No matter what it is. It’s here whether we like it or not. Will it be a practice? Yes. Will it be uncomfortable? Yes. Will it be worth it? YES! Its part of your beautiful and soulful Journey in this world and the more we fight it and try to control it, the more we will struggle physically, emotionally and spiritually. Just think….If you can control the outcome and be 100% certain about the things you are uncertain of, what will you do with that? What are you going to do with that perfect weight or perfect job or perfect body or perfect health? Will it really matter that much? If we embrace uncertainty and focus more on what we are going to give, what we are going to create, and attract in this world, we embrace our purpose. And that is the ultimate spiritual growth. It can feel a bit risky, but I encourage to take the leap. Don’t worry you won’t fall. You’ll learn, grow and love.
