Chaos contains the power of all creation. Perhaps you are getting ready to manifest something gigantic and awesome? If chaos has entered your life today, you are certainly in a creative pattern. Persevere! The quickest way out is through, so keep moving forward. Know that you are being blessed by some huge energy that is going to help you bring forth your dreams. It may be uncomfortable in the moment, but chaos is powerful energy, and it has chosen to come into your life for a reason. If chaos has visited you today, practice your breathing. Allow it to be what it is. Remember all of the tools in your toolbox, such as faith, meditation, courage, strength, and the ability to be present. Call on any or all of them, as you see fit. Now breathe some more, with conscious purpose.
