“Inspired action is the key to manifesting that which you desire.”

– Krystle Clear Financials

There’s a massive upheaval happening right now – not only in Australia, but globally. It’s making our ability to find a sense of balance and sanity a challenge. Much of our old has disappeared, and we may find ourselves struggling with the new norms. 

Of course, these new norms are constantly changing; what even is normal right now anyway? How do we keep our flow of energy and move forward with positivity and strength? How do we decide what we want, knowing things could change in the blink of a government press conference?

We can get caught in the drama, tailspin, panic, and go around in circles with no sense of clarity – but tail spinning will cause severe dizziness, confusion and create an uncomfortable environment. 

We could get upset, resulting in no outcomes at all, and the effect might be sleepless nights, anger, mood swings, and/or frustration. 

Choosing negativity through words and feelings leaves us empty, sad and may lead to levels of depression. Staying stuck in this place of confusion, negativity, and upset, we know it isn’t healthy; therefore, we continually seek solutions.

We know we will get through to the brighter side because we have been through challenging situations before. Seeking support from friends, family, neighbours, community/sports groups, colleagues, and crisis lines like Lifeline and Beyond Blue are an excellent first step. 

But we also want to continue life as smoothly as possible, creating good goal outcomes. Having something fun to look forward to is uplifting. Mother nature can help with grounding us with clarity and decision-making processes. When we support ourselves first, we fully support our families and loved ones, our top priority. Therefore nurturing ourselves unconditionally is critical! 

Letting go of the worry will free our energy. Dr. Wayne Dyer once quoted, “There is no point worrying about something out of our control because we cannot do anything about it; it’s out of our control. There is no point worrying about anything within our control because if it’s in our control, we can fix it.” These are wise words to sit with and ask ourselves, what is in my control?

  • Tips to take small steps.
  • Do deep breathing, and ask who has control?
  • Take small inspired action steps,
  • Create goals, 
  • Love and support self,
  • Reconnect with mother nature,
  • Know, This Too Shall Pass, 
  • Support others by being there.

My grandmother once gave me a tip:

“In difficult times, move forward in small steps.

Do what you have to do, but little by little.

Don’t think about the future or what may happen tomorrow.

Wash the dishes.

Remove the dust.

Write a letter.

Make a soup.

You see.

Advance step by step.

Take a step and stop.

Rest a little.

Praise yourself.

Take another step.

And then another.

You won’t notice, but your steps will grow more and more.

And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.”
