Letting go of the Story
So, I was late to upload my video blog, this one (at bottom of page) is from a few days ago and is semi-post epic catharsis!
Medicine for this coming month… Woooo, Hold on for the ride!
In this coming month, we are being called to be mindful of where our mental energy is being channeled. Seriously! Be aware of reactive emotions, old patterns of conditioning and responses to whatever might be transpiring for you over these coming weeks! Now is the time to really practice becoming the witness and giving ourselves permission (and the space that is necessary) to let go of the story. Not everything is personal, though it may appear to be on many levels. It’s our job to sift through all the sediment that is being stirred up, and find the clear way through. Lots of challenges leading to big transformations.
Let go of the need to know and analyse. Find a different way to process these uncomfortable emotions or thoughts rather than constantly engaging with the mind. Sing, dance, Jump, Laugh, Get creative, walk backwards down the street, dress up as a super-hero, go outside in nature and breathe!
The more we align to the Heart-Mind, the more our controlling mind thinks it is dying, and will activate it’s struggle to stay in control. Recognise this, if you are having massive mental purges( Like I am).
Reassure your mind that it is not dying… Rather, you are just embarking on a journey of deep soul excavation and require it to step aside for now, so that you can access deeper facets of yourself for healing. Everything has been so chaotic for me these last two weeks, I feel myself transitioning through now… I am finding clarity and direction and a deeper sense of how I am to cultivate myself for the benefit of the world.
So my advice…
Love yourself deeply and fully. In every facet you can imagine. Your priority is YOU right now. Nurture yourself. Take some time to just simply breathe and feel the sun on your face. Find the stillness in the moment… the in-between realm where all is well.
Focus your awareness on areas in your life that require attention to cultivate the changes you wish to see. Only you can do this, no else can implement these changes for you. Start to think of practical and FUN ways to make these changes and make them SIMPLE!
Give yourself the Love that you crave or feel that you are lacking.
Practice random acts of kindness- from the good of your own heart, for no other reason that just because!
Change your attitude to gratitude! Express YO’self Fool!
Give yourself permission to do one of those, “one-day” things that will help to cultivate happiness in yourself and others… Do it today, or atleast this week… or not…choice is yours, but who knows, you might just surprise yourself!
Look at the sky– any time of day, just do it and remember that you are not alone. We are all on this crazy ride together! You are here, and you make a difference in the world!
Blessings for this transition and transformation,
