Contraction Contraction in the body is a sign that you are about to expand. If you can bow to the discomfort within the contraction, and resist trying to solve it, fix it, make it go away, it will guide you to the next cycle in your life. Contraction is the reptilian brain’s response to your soul’s growth. The soul always wants to fly. Your brain wants to keep you safe and predictable, in what’s familiar, even if familiarity is chaotic and painful. It is normal to want to push, distract, or dissociate away from contraction. Consider contraction is a signal from Spirit that you are ready to emerge as a changed and altered being. If you truly desire to live in alignment with your soul, contraction will be a part of that process. We are not taught how to honor our contractions as holy initiations. They’re experiences that bring us treasures and wisdom, for ourselves and to share with others. Without contraction, there would be no growth, expansion, intuitive gifts. The discomfort is much like a caterpillar outgrowing the chrysalis. The struggle is a necessary part of the process. Give yourself some grace as the new version of you emerges. I also like to think of it like an archer pulling a bow back before launching it forward. Remind yourself that you're about to be catapulted into a whole new space of expansion. This transformation brings relief, a new level of understanding, connection and compassion. Soften into it and allow the process to unfold.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
