Have you ever heard the term “dark night of the soul”? It’s really the same as hitting the bottom of your life; a desperate, depressing time when you just want to sink down in the sh*tpile and call it good. Ick. What a horrible thought, but I bet many of you have been there. I know I have. A time, or three.
You just lay there, face down in your sh*t, and wonder why and how you got that way. Maybe you want to stay there. Maybe you want to get out of it.
Did you know that all you have to do is roll over? Yes, really. If you roll over, you look up towards the light and the way out.
Most people who hit the bottom are just ready to give up. Death is certainly a way out, but why would you want to do that when there are other possibilities? Instead think: Surrender. When you surrender, you give up control. So if you roll over, look up at the light and surrender to the Universe, you flip on the light to something brighter and better. The Universe will get you out of the sh*tpile if you give up control. If you pay attention, the Universe will put ideas in your tired little brain that you can use to improve your life. The Universe will send people and resources to help you move forward. But you have to be open to it.
The biggest miracles occur when you have a dark night of the soul. Things you never, ever dreamed would happen show up at the right time making you wonder why you ever thought things were so bad. But you know something? You don’t have to wait until you are at the bottom of the well to get miracles. You can get them anytime you want. Yes, really. The Universe is on-call 24/7. To you. To anyone. No limits. No running out of data.
All you have to do is roll over and surrender.
