I'll take some Harmony please...

Harmony... what a concept, huh? You work so diligently to create harmony in your life and then when you get it- you don't know what it is and what to do with it, then you end up stirring up more chaos!

Sound familiar?

It may not if you haven't taken the time to recognize the pattern. You may just keep leaping from chaotic schedule to hectic family days, etc.

Do you allow a lull to happen? Maybe you're so tired when it happens that you keel over from fatigue and then go right back to being hectic again. Harmony can cause old fears to be triggered because the mind may not have a point of reference for it. Remember the blog post I wrote about a client saying she was feeling so peaceful that it was stressing her out?

If you are not accustomed to harmony, peace and calm, then your mind make create turmoil and chaos in order to feel more comfortable- sounds twisted- but then again, that's how our psyche can operate sometimes. It's best to reassure yourself that harmony, peace and calm, although not easily recognized, is actually a good thing. It is safe for you to rest and be at peace. You don't have to 'wait until the next shoe drops.' You don't have to 'brace yourself' for the next trauma. They may just be the old pattern.

If you had a hectic household growing up, then you may have these expectations built right into your psyche. It's learning to allow new experiences that becomes the challenge. Open your heart to something new. Let your mind know that you are safe. Use your affirmations... have a mantra like "My life is harmonious, happy and safe." Think about all the reassurance that you may need. Pat yourself on the back for your accomplishments and know that you are deserving of harmony and peacefulness. It's your birthright. You deserve it.
