When you have your own business and you create your hustle, your hours and do this all while following the flow and rhythm of your souls calling, overwhelm can settle in really quickly!
Recently there has been so much movement in my life and I feel as if the Universe is really showing me my skill sets, my power and my ability to bring the messages that it is birthing through me to the world — which to be honest has scared the sh*t out of me these past 2 weeks.
Have you ever felt so full where your mind is just piled up with things to do? It kinda leaves you feeling swirly?! I feel like my world is speeding up and I am having fun and all the things are GREAT, I mean I am blessed, but dang I felt like I needed to just land back in my body…I was totally floating in outer space.
In the past few weeks my dreams showed me that they are truly planted in me for a big reason and my business exploded (literally my prayers have been answered) and the most amazing goddesses are joining the Goddess Boss Movement, starting their essential oil businesses and also so in-tune with doing business in their feminine energy and in flow, so we’ve hit the tipping point and I am like a firecracker over here welcoming people, sparking new relationships and helping each of them ignite their light so they do the dang thing with passion and KNOWING!
But while I’ve been running at a mile a minute, I’ve also been launching a program with my girl Lauren, brainstorming a new program for spiritual entrepreneurs with my fiancé Ryan and leading 2 group programs.
This morning (it’s a Wednesday when I’m writing this) I woke up so HAPPY to take the day on and jam out with people and help them all create their dream life, but I hit a wall.
My normally dialled in, tuned up, God speaking morning routine was lacking oomph and instead of journalling I wanted to just scroll social media. Not good.
While I went to pick up my phone to scroll, I stopped myself and kinda got upset! “What the F are you doing Kris?! This is your non negotiable spiritual time!” and I had to go deeper.
You know me, I always go deep. I need the deep.
Today I faced myself and all I felt was OVERWHELMED.
When I was reaching for my phone to scroll this was the way for me to numb out because I didn’t want to face the overwhelm. I didn’t want to face all I had to do and sort out in my mind. All I wanted to do was start my day without thinking — not good for my soul.
When you feel like you’re running from yourself – you need to look at what needs to be shattered so you can set yourself free!
Yup, you need to free yourself from your ego thoughts.
Fear, doubt, overwhelm, and procrastination are telling you something. They are telling you that you are disconnected from your soul and you need to come home.
We should feel charged up and high vibes when we’re connecting to our truth, not running from what our truth is trying to say to us…
Overwhelm in my mind is like a bunch of trapped fears in my mind that need to leave, but I’m not sure which one needs to go first, so I just keep them all in my mind. If you do this too, you’ll start to feel heavy, tired, disconnected and maybe even more worrisome.
The more your body is in overwhelm, the more toxic it can become and your soul actually wants to leave your body. They say your soul will leave, but remain attached to a cord so it can come back when you’re back in your truth and love.
Here’s what I did to let my overwhelm dissolve so I could feel MYSELF again:
I GOT IN NATURE!
This could be the most simple exercise I ever give you ; )
Get your rear into nature and hand all the overwhelm over to the Universe and get the answers you need.
When you’re in nature, you are cleansing your aura, you are letting gaia work through you and take the negative energy and turn it into positive while it surges potent energy back through your body.
The universe knows what you can handle and what you need, but you need to listen. Any pain is a sign that you’re doing life on your own and you need to reconnect.
So Ryan and I took Hudson (our dog!) on an Intuition Walk. We pulled up at a park we love, let our intuition guide us down trails and through bushes and ended up on a teeny tiny little white sand beach where we sat for 2 hours and I just let the ocean air and mamma nature take my overwhelm and asked her to replace it with solutions of simple guidance. While on the rock I heard my next step and I am setting up a system for my Goddess Bosses, I am streamlining. I heard I must get to my email list more regularly to get my message to more people at once and it all just felt good. No more overwhelm was present!
I even came home rocked out 2 welcome calls to my newest Goddess Bosses and felt so aligned.
I hope this helps you — when you’re feeling full and overwhelmed, choose to get out into nature and let it works it’s magic! Ask the Universe to take all this from you and bring you back to calmness. We’re teaching surrender right now in our group coaching programs and our clients lives are changing just from simple handing over what is no longer serving them to a power greater than them.
I choose the beach or forest for my surrender work because I find them to be both so cleansing.
You can also try using affirmations while you’re overwhelmed at work : )
