The Unknown - Threat or Opportunity?

People get falsely lured into thinking that if you just know what is coming next, you will be okay and things will go well. Even if we can see the tidal waves coming, we can't always escape being swept away by them. In fact, if you can see them, the chances are you are going to get swept away by them.

Let me tell you quite bluntly, the fear of the unknown is holding you back. You don't have to wait for all things to be clear to trust your gut. You don't have to ask yourself what will be, you just have to look around and see what is.

Changing on the inside

I was reading Dragonspell to my oldest son this week, that I picked up from the used bookstore, Calico Books.  I love used bookstores!  Anyway, there was a line in it that I thought was so true I was inspired to blog on it. The line said "I'm changing so much on the inside. I keep learning things that seem to me I should have known all along." How true this is. When you are in a self transformation, the changes are happening in places no one can see, but everyone can feel. Often times this new awareness and knowledge feels like things we should have known all along. Probably because we do know it, we just chose to keep it hidden until we were ready. The thing I tell everyone is that your beliefs changes with the understanding of yourself and the world. It doesn't make your old beliefs wrong, it just makes them out of date. They were right for you at one point as are your new beliefs right for you now.  Sometimes we are unwilling to let go of old beliefs just because we have built so much of our lives around it, it would mean admitting it all had to change to change the belief. It would mean admitting that somewhere along the line we made a wrong turn. We made decisions out of the wrong belief system. So, we often times just stay stuck in an old way of thinking, just to keep ourselves from having to make these drastic changes.

My proposal is, rather than looking to the outside world and saying "there is so much to do", let the changes that are happening within you help you shape your world, with ease not effort. Try and just let go of the idea that you were ever wrong or that where you are now is not where you are suppose to be. Instead, embrace where you are as perfection and flow with the changes that are coming from within you, without judgement or fear.

Insightful Inspiration for the week

Inside yourself is all the wisdom you need. It is always waiting for you to discover it. Even if it looks like an outside source, i.e. a blog, a book, a mentor, these external realities are being created from your inner wisdom. Check in with what you are beating yourself up over not "knowing" before. Let go of judging yourself from this place and see this new awareness that you "should have" known all along as coming in at the exact right moment. Before now, you were not ready to see yourself and the world with this knowledge. Now the changes on the inside have lead you to a new definition, which asks you to be fluid as your awareness is always expanding and redefining the world as you know it. Let go of the fear of change and old ways of thinking and embrace the things you knew all along but weren't ready for them yet.  Flow with it, you will love the results!

Overcoming Adversity

As I do my work on this level I come to understand adversity seems to be the human condition available for all us to go to, if we choose. If our lives are lucky enough to have food, shelter, and cars, we create new adversities to face such as unemployment, abuse, addictions, etc. It seems to me that adversity is always available for us to have if we so choose. As I always love to define words, just because it really helps highlight the issue, Meriam-Webster dictionary defines adversity as: a state, condition, or instance of serious or continued difficulty or adverse fortune. I heard an inspiration on Marianne Williamson's Miracle Thoughts podcast,  from the Oprah Spirit Network, about Women being empowered. I am probably going to butcher the summary, but what I heard was stop saying you are not empowered and take your power. It is there for you to have (if you live in countries where women have equal rights, but I would venture to guess this stands for where ever you are).

This is so true for most of us. We go around saying how empowered we want to be, how hard we have it and we want it to be easy. We focus on our adversities and not on the miracle's that come out of it. The speech therapist at my son's school gave me a book, called Trail Mix, about kids overcoming adversities such as learning disabilities, leukemia, etc.  Those are true adversities to overcome, but the thing I hear when I read this book is when you are facing a true adversity, you have no choice but to go forward. Adversity brings in the possibilities of profound understanding of yourself and the world around you. When things are easy, you don't put awareness on making it better.

I am not saying to diminish how you are feeling about your own adversity because someone always has it worse. That just invalidates who you are. I am saying use this adversity to show you the parts of yourself that want to shine through the experience. The essence of you that wants to be more present in your life when all of this passes.

Insightful Inspiration of the week

What adversity do you feel you are facing right now? Are you dwelling in the story of the adversity or are you looking for the lessons and magic it holds for you? If you aren't facing an adversity right now, think back to a time you did and how you came through it a brighter person. Commend yourself for the strength you have and trust you will continue to have it, no matter what life throws at you. The key is, are you wise enough to glean the wisdom from the experience when it is over. The answer there too is YES!

Routines ... slave or master?

jackwashingupAs I continue to explore the world as I understand it and question all of it as I go along, I am questioning routines this week. I suppose it could be a little annoying to live with me, because I am always asking questions and TRYING to never be set in my own ideas so much that I can't hear another's.

One thing that I am looking at this week, as I have a newly full time stay-at-home mother role (previously had my littlest in full time preschool and my oldest is in school) and a husband out of town, I realized what a gift it was to be broken out of my routine. OH... and in an effort to better nurture my body, cutting out coffee, to top it off! My oldest didn't have school one day this week and than had the stomach flu (that promptly cleared as the sun rose in the morning). This was all, clearly NOT routine. So how did I handle it? How did my kids handle it? For the most part, well. But I am observing how most of it is just part of a desire to keep what I like going in life and avoid the rest. One might even call this focusing on the best practices and continuous improvement on our own lives. 

However, at some point it COULD turn us into a ball of blocked energy, keeping us from new experiences. Depending on what we do with our routines, it could keep us from those new experiences that create that synchronicity that makes our life magical. If we resist breaking out of routines that is.

As my week unfolded, I discovered my second child is a huge blabber mouth when his brother isn't there to do it for him (as is their mother). I learned that I CAN have fun with my kids without an agenda. I learned that sitting at a desk job is making me tired and out of shape. I learned that I am not just WHO I play as a role in my life, but so much more of a soul essence that is flexible and open to life and loves every minute of it. I needed a reminder, by breaking out of routine.

So I guess what I am saying is... the way I see it, there is nothing wrong with routines, unless you cling to them and can't even break away from them. And many of us do cling to our routines like that.

Insightful Inspiration for the week

My inspiration for you this week is to take a look at your routines. Could you give them up? What happens if you can't follow them due unforeseen circumstances? How do you let them dictate your life? Are you doing it out of enjoyment or desperation to make sure you are safe and secure with what you "know"? Notice are you the master of your routines or the slave? What do you want to be?

Have a spontaneous week!
