True story: nothing is certain.
If you think there is a certain way to get exactly what you want, precisely the way you want it, the shocking truth is that you are limiting your life, and perhaps fooling yourself.
I called my dear friend and flower essence homeopathic healer Alexis Smart recently in a panic because I had made two huge life shifts, both that I knew were necessarly, and both that left me without the tentative sense of “certainty” that I had about my life in certain ways. I had given up a work project and a promising relationship ended all in one week. Suddenly, I had no idea what was happening even though I knew that it all had to happen because both were not right as they were.
I had been doing the weirdest things, very un-Dana things: trying to find tarot readings, looking up astrology, trying to find my old pendulum to swing around and ask questions. The more I did this stuff the less that life felt good. In fact, I started to feel like a prisoner of Fate. That’s very un-Dana-like and I realized it was a symptom of an old habit that I had to break.

For those of you that don’t know, I am a Buddhist and I gave all this stuff up a very long time ago, along with psychics and other stuff that tries to predict the future. I called Alexis because, well, I was unravelling something much bigger than I realized and I knew that if I could get grounded and calm I could stop the vicious and limiting cycle that had started. I was deeply freaked out by uncertainty because so much of it seemed to happen in the space of a few days.
I’m quite grateful that a little homeopathy, a lot of Buddhism and a healthy dose of gratitude pulled me out of the wilds of “What the hell is happening?”
Are you there right now, sitting in a space where you wish you knew what happens next because everything feels so uncertain and maybe even unfamiliar?
Today, the big question that has been Earth-shattering to my own life and may just stir up your own:
How comfortable are you with uncertainty?
How cool are you with the idea that anything can happen… and how open are you to all the possibilities? Continue Reading…
