Making It Through by Felicia Reed, Certified Coach

by | Jan 3, 2017 | Put it in Perspective Blog

It’s a brand New Year and at times our situations do not change because the date does. As a survivor of unique and deep-rooted life events, I am often asked “How did you make it through?” as people look at me in wonderment, with puzzle looks, showing grave concern, with incredible penetrating stares, with tears and some even are shaken to the point where they cannot stand and utter “Let me sit down.”. Yes, the infractions have severely altered my life and the lives of those around me. However, I continue to make it through.
For those that want to make it, muster up determination and just keep going forward even if it is by one toenail at a time. Soon you will be marching with entire steps. Just keep going. Enjoy this insight on what JUST might work for you.


-Constant prayer
Pray all the time no matter where you are and pray deep prayers.

Give whatever it is over to a higher power, God, the Universe and release it continuously.

-Go Silent
It is only in silence can you hear the whisper of the answers you need. They are gentle voices.

Accept what others did or do and accept what you did or do.

When we change, things around us change.

-Evaluate Priorities
Continuously evaluate of priorities before making decisions is critical. Constantly thinking before doing helps with awareness.

-Use Intuition
It is critical to pay attention. You must decrease vulnerability by increasing alertness.

-Get help
Seek support groups, professionals, guides, mentors, coaches, those with wisdom or experience, healers, body workers, mind builders.

-Stay busy
Channel the negative feelings into positive results. Have routines or a schedule.

Don’t take on what is not yours. Don’t allow others to inflict emotions, beliefs, patterns, negativity and other draining elements that don’t belong to you.

-Watch words
Empower yourself with your words by removing the ones with doubt, fear, hurt, hate, and can’t.

Being alone and away from triggers or negativity allows healing space. Temporarily remove television, hanging out to get away from problems or hurt, negative pictures, low frequency people, and harmful exposures.

-Self love
Take care of you.

Journal or blog to release

-Clean up your spirit and energy
Find a way to clean and clear your energy field.

Immediately cancel and delete all negative thoughts so they don’t manifest in the universe. Be careful.

Move energy blocks by getting rid of what you don’t need. Things collect energy and become heavy.

-Be in the truth
No matter how crazy the truth sounds, cling to it. The right ones will believe you and honor it. People are relying on “crazy” and using it against others. Stay in the truth. God knows everything.

Give as much as you can and you will receive.

-Don’t follow
Allow others to show you how you don’t want to be. Trust the process.

Forgive everyone and everything including yourself. Trust that things will be addressed.

-Keep going
Determination is a driving force. Don’t give in and don’t give up.

Learn as much as you can. Stay busy in the mind and exercise the brain in positive ways. Be gentle but do stay occupied.

-Reduce toxins
Electronics, medicines, addictions, environments, foods, chemicals, synthetics, people of toxicity have to be devalued and reduced. What you allow may destroy you.

Most of all…..remain in constant GRATITUDE. It gets better. What you emit is what you attract so keep your vibration extremely high in difficult times. You can do it.
