When you tap into this side of yourself, you’re connecting with an army of invisible forces that are just waiting to help you. You can tune into this resource every day by simply turning inward and noticing how things feel.

Your spiritual side is always there; once you become aware of it, you’ll feel its stability, guidance and gentle suggestions.
8. Your Change Support Team: The People and Things That Can Help
Those who successfully work through change create an environment that supports their evolution by surrounding themselves with supportive people. Saying three simple words—“I need help”—will produce an incredible amount of assistance. You may fear that saying those words makes you weak, but research proves that people find it easier to get through change when they’re in a positive group environment.
When going through change, it’s important, as well, to surround yourself with things that are symbols of comfort, positive memories and power. If you lose your way during the transition, these items are there to get you back on course. Any object that’s uplifting can help you get through change: It can be a teddy bear, a trinket, a card, a candle, a photo of something or someone, an inspirational quote or a lucky stone. There are no rules for the things that give you strength.
9. Get Unstuck: Actions to Move You Through Any Change
As people who embrace change have realized, another secret to navigating transitions is to get moving. Physical motion prevents you from getting stuck and allows you to progress onward. When we go through change, emotional, physical and psychic energy is swirling around us—staying still prevents that energy from circulating. When you don’t know what to do, just start moving. You can do anything—go for a walk, do the dishes, hit the gym, water the plants or organize your closets.
Movement is key during change, and so is health—it’s essential to take care of yourself during transitions. Doing so will help you move through change in an easier and calmer way. Remember the concept of S.E.E.D.: Sleep, Eat, Exercise and Drink (water that is!). Be sure to get just enough sleep (though sleeping too much isn’t helpful), eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly and drink lots of water. The S.E.E.D. will help you get through change faster by giving you the strength and vitality to move forward without getting stuck.
Now’s the perfect time to begin looking at change differently—for the first 30 days and for the rest of your life. Change is something at which you can get better—it’s a skill you can learn and a path to loving your life even more! Have a wonderful, uplifting journey!
