The Gift of Loneliness

Sometimes we get so busy being busy we forget to slow down and embrace lonely.

Being lonely makes space for us to reflect and look inside ourselves. Maybe thats why it is something we avoid. Taking that time to be in our own company and embracing that state of quiet can be disconcerting.

I have come to recognize that being alone, lonely is an opportunity. An opportunity to really breathe, to think singularly without diversion, to dig deep within our own spirit and see the shadows.

Stepping into the space of the shadow and shining the light into the corners and crevices. Having a good look at why being alone is a scary place is emowering.

I don’t like to think about the shadow side. I would rather stay in a state of perpetual love, light, peace and hope. But the reality is that without the shadows we would not have the pure joy of the light.

Walking into the light after a journey in the shadows brings a new perspective and a new appreciation for all that brings love, light and joy into our lives.

So I have decided that walking in the shape shifting clouds of the shadows is a process to be embraced…not endured. Today I will love my shadows and bring light to the crevices of my spirit. Today I will not fill my time with busy tasks to avoid the lonely. I will walk within it and learn the lessons it brings.

I will peek into the corners and sit down there and free myself from the anxiety that creates. I will allow the light of peace to fill the space that I have been avoiding. I will make friends with my demons. I will bring them into my heart where only love lives.

I will change my perspective of lonely. I will love lonely and all its gifts.

I Am The Boss….of ME

After many detours and reroutes. I am going the right direction. I am finally listening to the universal guidance that has always been the little voice in my head and the angel on my shoulder.

I think maybe I had my life map GPS on the verge of blowing up out of frustration at my inability to follow its directions. I was not listening very well. I could feel in my body that things were not right. But I chose to over ride that 90% subconcious brain with the 10% concious brain that I am the boss of. Free will and ego can easily be implemented and make the journey of life circuitous and difficult.

So yes I am the boss of me. But, I am choosing to hand over the decision making processes to a CEO of Me … My Higher ME…my Intuition…the Universal Guidance that exists within all of us.

It isn’t easy and just like any GPS it has glitches….man made glitches…AKA-ME. But, I am getting better at following the directions of this guidance system.

Listen to my body. Our subconcious mind talks to our body constantly. Tells it to breathe, heart to beat, and a bazillion other automatic activities that keep us alive and safe. Why then did I suppose that something so intricatey designed to keep me alive would fail me when I had to make a choice?

The answer is …it didn’t. I just was not a good listener. Mostly because I didn’t like what it was saying. I (my little 10% concious brain) had made decisions that no matter how hard I worked to work….were not working.

I have a saying …When the pain is greater than fear….you change. Not listening to that inner guidance creates pain. The pain of not being authentically ME. The pain of feeling trapped, stifled….triggers change.

I now am following all those synchronistic occurances and listening to my body say yes or no. My body which is controlled by my big 90% subconcious brain…My CEO…is now the boss of me…Usually.

It is gonna be a helluva ride! I can’t wait. Fearless and Free Me!

Just Jump….Live Fearlessly

Fear can be immobilizing. Fear of failure. Fear of Success. Fear of fear. Fear of conquering every limiting belief you have ever held close as security blanket of conformity, complacency and comfort.

That old security blanket tattered and worn keeps me stuck in a place that is old and prevents growth. As hard as it is….I have to throw it away. I can not save it as a momento. That just allows me to dig it out and resurrect its purpose. If I want to live an extraordinary life I can not allow old patterns of survival to come with me on this new journey. I have to trust that when I take the leap…the net will appear.

Just One Step ….at a Time

I am taking steps to catapult into life one step at a time. Some baby steps and some a leap of faith. What I am learning is that when you leap the net truly does appear.

I recently booked a trip to Costa Rica. The original plan was a very structured two weeks to take a course in Bio Energy. That mini plan has expanded into a month long adventure of taking the course and then exploring the country.

At times my anxiety lurking in the shadows wafts out and around me, enveloping me in the clutches of fear. Its tentacles reaching out looking for a strong hold in every insecurity I have ever had and the ones I am conquering now.

Anxiety is fear of the future….I am determined to be fearless. I am determined to live my best life! I am learning to listen to my body, talk myself off the ledge of panic and have faith that if I am following the beat of my drum ….the net is never gone. It moves a bit…challenging me to fly higher and jump further…but it is never gone.

Synchronicity does appear in unexpected places. Bringing guidance and wisdom to share that make the leap of faith a graceful free fall instead of the drop of doom.

This leap is challenging every limiting belief I have ever had and still struggle with…..but my faith in myself as a survivor and the universe to have my back is transforming this into an epic life changing adventure fear is being replaced by joy and excitement.

An Extraordinary Life should be exciting. Even writing these words is exciting. Translating the frenzy of jitters into a vortex of passion!

Miracles in Moments

Life in and of itself is humbling when you break it down to moments. Right here right now in every moment, every breath.

As I ponder the miracles that are necessary to be in this moment at this time, it empowers my faith in a Universal energy that is bigger than I can comprehend.  To think that all things are not connected and that we have no impact on the world, nor the world on us is ludicrous.

Living in the attitude of gratitude is easy when you look around and realize that just the air we breath, the trees, birds, sunshine, rain….all of these things occurring via energetic shifts and sharing.

We can feel the energy change when a storm is brewing. The wind whips up and changes the air. Thats energy.

The sun shines down warm like a big hug. Thats energy at work.

Staying present in this moment feeling the energy of the earth, air, sun, moon animals is miraculous and gives us many reasins to stay in a place of peace, love and gratitude.

Miracles happen every day. Stay present, stay humble , stay grateful.

Love is harmony.

Embrace life…stay present.

Life Is Fluid Ride The Wave

Life is ever moving, evolving motion. How we approach it determines our experience.

We can move against the flow and be exhausted all the time or ride the wave and put the energy into setting the course of the motion.

If you are resisting the flow of life you are trying to go backwards. We can  not go backwards. You can resist forward momentum enough to stay stuck in the rut that you are in. The vortex that keeps spinning and repeating the same experiences that we are trying to escape from.

If you allow forward momentum and refocus on the path you want to be on. Making choices and decisions that will lead in that general direction. The flow of life will take you there.

Trust the flow of life. Ride the wave.

Follow the rainbow and know that you are the pot of gold.
