“Most of us were not raised to connect with our true self. One of the most popular sayings during the time my generation was growing up was “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.”
Because of this, we didn’t know how to sit still, quiet our mind, and listen for the truth of our inner voice, especially during times of great change.
Therefore, when most people find themselves in a major life transition, what they hear first when faced with “Now what?” is an uncomfortable silence.
Rather than feel into this for guidance from the inner voice, the silence prompts the frightened inner critic to initiate a flurry of activity to fix their situation.
But what if fixing the situation requires a new way of taking action, such as taking no action, at least not right away? This means making significant changes in our life that go against what we were taught was the “right way.”
