Finding inner peace, enlightenment, or the Eden within, does not mean you will never have a bad day again. One of the wonderful things about finding the flow in your life however, is that when you do have a bad day, the universe has a way of sending messages to help you through. This can manifest in a person showing up at the right time, a song on the radio that speaks to your problem, stumbling across a blog post or video that gives you the right kind of guidance at the right time. The trick is staying present enough during your bad days to recognize these miracles. Remaining present during a bad day means that you acknowledge what is going on in the moment and be present with it, in a state of non-resistance. Allow it to be. Step back and observe your thoughts about the moment, without judgment. Breath through it. Notice that you – the essential you – has not been destroyed by the negativity. When you do this, you may find the ‘bad stuff’ in the moment will have less power over you, and you will be able to remain open for guidance. This does not mean you will magically be ‘happy’ in the midst of a bad day. It does mean that it will not consume you. Here is a wonderful video from Teal Scott on this topic.
