I get a lot of newsletters from different people, but one of them that I enjoy the most is from Sara Wiseman. If you have ever seen any of Sara’s work, you would see why. Sara is a spiritual teacher, intuitive and author of several very insightful books. Here is her most recent blog post, that is also her “Daily Divine” message of the day, which you can sign up for on her website.
“If you’re in a place where everything feels hopeless, where you wake up and want to cry first thing because it all seems too hard, consider letting go. Stop pushing. Stop being afraid. Stop trying to control it all. Connect in to the Universe, and see what plans are there for you. Chances are good, there is another way to live, that is much more enjoyable than how you are living now.”
That was me before my stroke. On the frenetic treadmill of life. Unfortunately, or should I say fortunately, it took a stroke to get me to change my way of being. My affliction has been a gift from the heavens for what it has taught me about what is important in life. I have been forced to slow down to a snail’s pace and surrender to Spirit. You know the saying “let go and let God?”
I learned that we really don’t have as much control over our lives as we think. And when we stop and relax into life instead of driving it all the time, we can find a bit of peace and serenity. Things start to flow more naturally.
If you are in that same place of being overwhelmed with life, where nothing brings you joy, surrender to the moment. Step back and evaluate your life and see how you might be able to make some changes so that you aren’t spinning out of control. Don’t get to the point where it takes some major life-altering experience such as a stroke to get you to rethink your life. Do it now!
Erica Tucci had a full life as a corporate manager of a Fortune 500 company, a healing arts business owner and an author. It all came to a screeching halt in June 2011 when she had a stroke. During her recovery, she gained much wisdom about what’s really important in life. Although she was a Reiki master, massage therapist and life coach as well as a corporate cog for many years, she realized that her passion was her books. Her hope now is that the messages of her books will be an inspiration for others, young and old. Visit her websites at www.ericatucci.com, www.sarahsgiftseries.com and www.radiantsurvivor.com.
