If you’re like me, sitting at the end of 2020 feels both hopeful and sad. There have been so many things to happen in 2020.

For me, it started in late February, when I was reading “You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero.

In one of the early chapters, Jen talks about how, when we start to break out of the mold of our status quo lives, sometimes it may seem like the Universe is sabotaging our plans.

As I read this, way back in February, I literally thought to myself, “We’ve been planning for some massive changes in our lives, have been erasing our limiting beliefs, and have both been working our asses off toward these goals. Aside from my site being down for 10 days in November due to a botched host migration, nothing terrible has happened yet…”

Famous. Last. Words.

The very next day, our house was broken into.
Two days later, that very weekend, all four of us got a nasty stomach virus and were basically throwing up for two days.
Three weeks later, the first coronavirus lockdown happened.
Two months later, two of my grandparents died within 5 days of each other (not COVID-related).
In October, I stopped talking with many of my family members over politics.

Finding Acceptance for the Bad Stuff in Life

When the shit hits the fan, sometimes all we can do is breathe through it. Sometimes we cry, sometimes we laugh.

The key is to allow our emotions out. If you’re sad, feel sad. Just don’t unpack and live there! Because things will get better!

So if you’re feeling defeated by things you can’t control, here’s a few affirmations for acceptance, allowance, and flow to move through the pain and to heal your mindset!

Remember, as you say these affirmations, actually relax your body. Feel the flow of energy. As difficult as it may be, really feel your acceptance.

Because attaching elevated feelings to these powerful words is a huge part of what heals our mindset, and if you believe in the power of energy, it also draws our desired circumstances to us.

Deep Surrender

In his course, Life Visioning Mastery Course on Mindvalley (not an affiliate link), spiritual guru Michael Beckwith talks at length about the power of deep surrender. While manifesting and bringing something to fruition is considered divine masculine energy, surrendering to the Universe is considered divine feminine energy. He calls it Channeling Consciousness, when you allow the Universe to work through you and you surrender to whatever you have been called to do.

This very deep acceptance is profoundly moving and can work miracles in your life when you are truly on the path that the Universe has set out for you.
