How to Thrive in Changing Times

To thrive is to develop vigorously, to flourish. I don’t know about you, but during changing times, my natural inclination is not to develop vigorously or to flourish. In fact, while I’ve learned to tolerate and even welcome change, change for me initially brings feelings of hesitation, uncertainty, and even anxiety.

That’s why I was so intrigued by Sandra Ingerman’s book How to Thrive in Changing Times. Within this book I not only found concrete tools to help me change my thinking, but I was introduced to many new concepts. As a teacher of shamanism, Sandra Ingerman focuses on ancient, spiritual methods to bring healing to modern times. As Sandra says, “The ancient and indigenous people were not filled with chaotic mind chatter. Rather, they could find the silent space within them that created a feeling of peace. The old teachings of the indigenous people offer us solutions to the challenges we face. We came here to live in harmony with all that exists…This is our birthright.”

Excerpted from: How to Thrive in Changing Times
In doing our spiritual work to transform ourselves and the world around us, we must work from the inside out. Too many of us only focus on the outer world. When we only focus on what is happening in the outer world, we start to feel like we are on a roller coaster ride.

For example:

Someone tells you that you look great, and then you feel happy.

Then you get a bill in the mail you were not expecting, and your emotions take a dive.

Then you go to work the next day, you get a promotion, and you feel great.

Then while you are working, someone tells you that you are being arrogant, and you feel terrible.

Then you go home and watch a human-interest story on the news, and you feel warm and loving inside.

Then you watch a story about war or an environmental disaster in some part of the world, and you lose all hope.

This yo-yoing can go on and on unless we come to the realization that our happiness, peace, joy, and wealth lie within. And once we have this realization, we must change our thought process.
