Change is inevitable in life and yet we often   resist it.   Many of us want to change but simply don’t know how to do it.  Change   can be   frightening so we resist, but fear of the unknown can result in clinging to status   quo behaviours-no matter how bad they are.   We may   read self help articles/ books/ watch u-tube videos   and   even   reach out for help but the   fundamental changes we would like to make   can still   elude us.   We may be afraid of the loss and uncertainty attached to change.  Sometimes the inconvenience of change is just too inconvenient. Letting go and allowing change to enter our lives   depends   on some   inner   belief in another possibility, another way.   The Eastern Wisdom  traditions speak a lot about   the impermanence of   life   and   the inevitability of change.     In everyone’s life, major   events   occur at some stage that brings big changes. This could be   the   loss of   a loved one,   break up of a family or loss of a   Job. On a global level right now major changes are occurring in many   people’s lives   due to Climate Change and wars.  During these   times   people are often   thrown into a cycle of grief and loss. Understanding   Kobler Ross’s   Grief Cycle, the emotional cycle on being given bad   news can help us to help others going through major change. Embracing change can be a courageous act which you’ll find  the universe will respond  to. Wanting to change ourselves   is the beginning of a journey. This change needs to be done gently and slowly if it is to become permanent change. Take baby steps.  Having   a realistic goal, set you intention and allow the steps to arise naturally  from within, follow this inner voice don’t just listen to the voice of ego and force  yourself into change it won’t last.  Everything has its own natural rhythm so allow time for change.   Appreciate the path. The path should be as rewarding as the goal.   Small successes   are big. Each little success builds your reservoir of self-esteem.  Good Luck
