Want to know how to turn your life around? This post will share through experience how to balance your life and gain positive results.
Balancing your life can be tricky. Once things are going smoothly something disrupts the apple cart and your life quickly turns upside down.
Getting life back on track again can take time. Having an understanding of how this balancing act works is helpful in maintaining balance or resuming balance when you’ve been thrown a curve ball.
Balance Your Life Through the Natural Law of Balance
The world operates on polarities to keep nature balanced, a constant pulling of forces. Some examples of these forces at work are gravity/levity, disease/health, and expansion/contraction. They create a symbiotic relationship working in unison.
Just as nature has it, there can only be so many things that can happen with a positive charge before something with a negative charge pulls it back creating balance. We tend to see all positive as good and all negative as bad, but that view is narrow minded and distorted.
This doesn’t mean you will be absent of pain. Often times you have to go through something upsetting or painful that you may not understand in order to reach an absolutely beautiful place in your life.
When you look at the natural law of balance as it is seen in your own life you can begin to accept how it works instead of becoming fear and anxiety ridden.
Example 1 How Imbalance Can Show Up
A true story of my own happenings I use here as an example of how life plays out using the natural law of balance.
In June my computer began acting up and once again I was faced with the decision of repairing or replacing it. In the past I had always chosen repair.
It was a high-quality computer that my son had built. It went at lightning speed, had ample storage and didn’t let me down, unless of course a component had lived out its life expectancy. And that only seemed to happen when I had a college assignment I was trying to complete or some other stressful time.
Respond or React
But this time I tried something different; responding without hesitation. I had been waiting to get a laptop for the past few years but could never justify doing so.
I decided this was the right time to purchase the laptop rather than replace another part which was turning into a game of dominos. Financially I didn’t have the extra cash, nor did I want to purchase computer hardware.
With my college studies nearing completion this would come in handy for use at work. The laptop also offered portability and took up much less space. All of these things combined gave me the justification I needed to move forward.
Example 2 How Imbalance Can Show Up
Approximately one month later my boss phoned to set up a time to meet. My second job allowed me to work from home part time. It was both convenient and enjoyable. I decided to remain optimistic but, in the end, due to poor economic times this job was over.
Respond or React
Now again, I had a choice to make. I could respond to this news or I could react to it. By responding I would be remaining open and positive despite the outcome. However, reacting to the news would only cause anxiety to rise up inside me.
Working from this place has never resolved any problems. This would cause me instead to remain in a rut and make it harder to get beyond.
I again chose to respond despite how hard losing my second income really was. When your income shrinks beyond your control it is very easy to be taken over by anxiety. Your mind begins running non-stop primarily to scare you.
Each and every time that happened I would let that thought go without attaching to it. My body became the vessel for those thoughts to pass through. It was up to me to allow this process to occur in its entirety.
Example 3 How Imbalance Can Show Up
Now once again, and exactly one month later my car needed serious engine work and was no longer drivable. This came only nine months after I dumped $3,500 into it. The resale value wasn’t even this much.
This left me wondering what could possibly be next. I had no idea how I was even going to be able to purchase a car when I had recently taken out a small car loan for my daughter and my income was shrinking fast.
I had no time to think which was really good for me. Thinking too much often gets in my way of other more meaningful things in life. I was now left with no wheels and no money to purchase a car which added to the complexity of life. I was forced to share my daughter’s vehicle and juggle job schedules. Thank goodness I found a replacement soon which turned out to be a small used foreign car.
Lesson of Acceptance
As this was all happening I understood the meaning behind it. I was able to remain calm and centered in the present moment. This enabled me to roll with the punches rather than resist and be stressed because of it.
Had I resisted I would have been given more of the same until I learned the lesson of accepting. By accepting everything that was being given me, both positive and negative, I was able to move beyond to the point where I was in a better place than before.
The Meaning Behind It All
First, the new laptop created a cleaning and clearing of sorts. The removal of clutter and the ability to set up a home office area that can be closed off when not in use.
Second, even though twenty percent of my income was gone and I did have to reduce services to help compensate, it has all been worth it. What I have been given is far greater than what I had.
Third, I had always wanted a foreign car, but could never afford it – now this was my opportunity. So, in two weeks’ time my dead car was replaced with a small fuel-efficient used car that has been good to me over the years and miles.
This was an awful lot to have happen in such a short three-month time but it did give me the opportunity to respond quickly to situations. The contraction in my life has offered me the opportunity and time to focus on other things. This would not have been possible if I had remained working the second job.
As life plays out in your own situations learn the lesson of acceptance. Things will shift in your life to make way for better things to come. Be receptive, ride those waves and remember it is not the destination but the journey that is important.
Your experiences give you the option of becoming more aware. With each experience comes a new opportunity to gain additional awareness.
When you allow this natural process to occur you are putting your trust in a higher power. As a result, you will gain more freedom.
