When we have our lows in life, we can actually use them to elevate to the next level. Since we don’t want to stay in the low for too long, how can we gain awareness to channel what feels aligned? This episode talks about accepting our low and moving in a new direction starting from this moment.

I’m hauling horses across the country currently! Getting away is my chance to decompress, process and gain awareness. I’ll be going with my Aunt Teeny, and I’ll be releasing all the distractions of life to focus on me while I take this trip.

I’m here to spend quality solo time with you for EP83’s Wise Walk as we discover our True Stride. While still dealing with the death of a loved one, I’m figuring out where I want to go from this point. I feel we can all relate to times in our life that throw us an unexpected detour or redirection. For me, I decided to lean in towards the adventure of a new path.

On our Wise Walk, I share with you my thoughts on navigating out of a low with heart, reflection, space, and alignment. You can look at your current life and decide what’s truly important. I realized that heading in a new direction includes nourishing the resources and relationships that help you get where you want to go. Come with me as we reflect on these Wise Walk questions:

    • Where do you go from here?
    • Where have you experienced an unexpected detour or redirection?
    • Are you willing to explore a new direction?

Doing what feels aligned is part of self-care. Allow yourself to be free of the personal obligations that weigh you down, so you can freely drop into your heart.

Be willing to let go and trust your inner compass. You never know which new parts of yourself you will discover, or what serendipitous events could happen. Navigate your new direction with these Wise Walk questions:

    • What are the ways that you can remove distractions from your life and find a nurturing environment to drop into your heart?
    • If you’re not finding ways to do so, what’s stopping you? 

Join this inspiring community to uncover a new sense of freedom, and be sure to follow and review the True Stride podcast as we continue to exchange our light and Heart Value with each other.
