As we arrive into a new year, it is a great time to reflect on the birth or rebirth of your life. Although this is happening continuously and often effortlessly, not just around the new year, 2011 gives us a reminder to pause and reflect. Most people tend to be very identified with a way of being in their life. For example, a set of patterns, a group of people, activities to attend, etc. In fact, we are so set in our ways, we struggle if we loose the option of one of these patterns. We fight to get it back or we grieve the loss of it. As Ecclesiastes states "There is an appointed time for everything" and the Byrds lovely song captures it so well.
But often times we fight the re-birthing process. We hang onto the things of the past or the way things worked before that are no longer working. As our lives evolve, so does our energy patterns, ways of thinking and ways of being in the world. If we let it. The re-birthing process isn't about dying and being reborn, but reshaping the way you think. Allowing your consciousness to move into a space that is working now, releasing what is no longer part of you or your world. Also to be flexible to what will be different later on.
Reality is more fluid than we think. We have the benefits, through the fast pace of technology, to see this more so than ever before. We are now living in a time where ideas can become reality in a matter of years if not months. Ideas that once would have been thought impossible. That is only possible because someone opened themselves up to a rebirth of thinking. A new way of being. How do you want to be?
Insightful Inspiration for the week
Open yourself up to the re-birthing process. Reinvent yourself! If you want to be different, then align yourself to be introduced to that reality as much as possible. Meet new people, experience new things, shake things up and see how the differences you experience expand your ability to change. Expose yourself to other people also reinventing themselves. Try letting go of things no longer serving you, even if you don't know what will replace it yet. Make room in that closet for new things or maybe just keep the spaciousness and don't replace it with anything! This can be something as big as a new job or a new place to live or as small as a new outfit you wouldn't dare wear before. Just shake things up a bit and see what else that inspires in you.
