Allow the Flow of Change

Yup, change can be challenging. It may be inevitable, it might happen every day; that doesn’t mean it’s comfortable. Nine times out of ten it’s not entirely unexpected. Something will come up to indicate change is on the horizon. Sometimes challenges are presented as old wounds or fears getting triggered. Sometimes you begin to feel resistance to activities, people or situations that used to light you up. Are you aware of the signs? If so, how good are you at instigating the actions needed to move towards change? If not, have you developed habits designed to resist change, which now stand between you and the life you desire? It takes conscious, mindful attention to work with the flows of energy moving through your life on Continue reading Allow the Flow of Change

Change or Spiritual Awakening?

Change is one of life’s constants; there is no being on this planet that hasn’t experienced it in one way or another, every day of their lives. Not all changes are created equal. Some feel easy, like a gentle curve in a country road, leading in a new direction. They flow into and out of your life with little commotion, leaving you feeling fresh and invigorated. Others blow through your life like a tempest, tearing you out of the comfortably familiar sameness and razing the foundations on which you’ve built your life to this point. They’re destructive, cathartic, and life-changing. These are the changes where you know you’ve reached the point of no return. You walk away feeling raw; transformed by the process of being Continue reading Change or Spiritual Awakening?

Falling in Love with Life

We’re heading into a weekend that ends one month and ushers in a brand new one. There is a whole lot of change happening at so many levels, and if you’re feeling exhausted, emotional or overwhelmed, do whatever you need to stay grounded and be compassionate with yourself. Take the time to rest, and if possible, don’t ‘push through’ whatever you’re feeling, but just let it flow. There is a concurrent thread of falling in love all over again, and of aspects of ourselves waking up that haven’t been heard from in some time. It feels like the final days/weeks of chrysalis mode, when the exhaustion of becoming the new is felt side by side with the knowledge of what is to come. I have Continue reading Falling in Love with Life

An Avalanche of Change

We’ve just had the results of the UK referendum and by a small majority Britain voted to leave the EU. It was a potentially surprising result, and at first it threw me a bit. I voted to remain, because it felt like the choice aligned with inclusivity, community and expansion. I spent some time in the allotment today and had a chance to feel into this result some more. I was surprised to find I feel excited, as if an avalanche of change has begun, more massive and expansive than any of the politicians involved could have anticipated. It’s as if this has begun a transformation of the structures at a deep level, calling out to finally heal the storylines of bloodshed and trauma that Continue reading An Avalanche of Change

March 2016 Visibility Challenge

This visibility challenge was an opportunity for me to commit to myself to show up every day, no matter what, to create a video. I had no particular ‘reason,’ other than to explore the vulnerability of being visible in more ways. When I first began, I had no idea what the topics would be, or if I’d have enough to cover the time I had committed to. Each day led to insights that offered potential topics for the next day, and so on. I enjoyed the process, and feel I gained a deeper sense of alignment through the daily explorations. I came to understand that being visible is not just an external experience. It is an integral experience that flows from deep within, expressing externally Continue reading March 2016 Visibility Challenge
