Oftentimes before we move through a big expansion in our lives, we have to contract — to go inward and spend time with ourselves, connecting with the person we are becoming, and the vision we are stepping into.
Much of this year has been just that for so many of us: reflecting on what life was and recreating our visions of what we hope the future will be.
A question I have been asking myself often is — how can I practice non-attachment in this moment? Where can I release my urge to want to control the outcome and instead be excited by the S P A C E that opens up when I just let go and let the Divine lead?
We will continue to be faced with the lessons we need to learn over and over until we have learned them. I have been feeling this deeply in my tendencies to want to feel “in control” in my own life. It has become a daily practice to meet myself with compassion and to recognize how much freedom comes with letting go. Giving myself permission to exist in the unknown. The space where synchronicities and miracles unfold. Where anything is possible.
One of my favorite practices is to say a prayer in the moments when I witness myself wanting to control the outcome, asking for the strength to surrender, and a sign to show me the next step to take. It has been a beautiful invitation to experience the present moment and receive guidance in the most unexpected ways.
I am thrilled to share that through the expansion I have been moving through, my podcast, Heal With Hilary has returned. This week, I am sharing an update and what to expect from the podcast moving forward, tools to create space in your life for the deeper inner work, and practicing self-compassion as an act of service.
