The last post was called ‘coming out of the backwater’ this is called moving upstream and into the flow… why, because this is the time, it’s a time of movement, a time to cast off the negativity and fear that holds you back, a time to move forward freely and joyfully.
Beginning to write again is opening channels that have been closed for a some time, so thank you to all of you who have encouraged and gently suggested! I hope you all enjoy this and please do respond, I would love to know what you think of these words and what you would like more of!
The American election has stirred many emotions, it feels we are really moving into a new era, the Americans wanted change and some of you do too. But change when it actually happens is not easy is it? We like to stick with what’s familiar, safe and comfortable. Often, there has to be a catalyst before we can move into a different space and of course there are those people who just make a picture and a movie, imagine it, feel it and step right in. How do they do that? A friend recently left her career, I had sat with her listening to what she wanted and suggested she visualised what her life would look like in the future, how she would feel, what she would see and what she would be doing in this ‘other’ life. She rang me one day and was so happy, ‘you sound great, are you living your life?” I asked, and she replied, ‘yes I am because I visualised what I wanted, I saw the detail, felt it and I just walked out of one life, and created the new one. And because I just know this is what I want I am more ME.” Giving yourself permission to be ME is a biggy for a lot of people. In my experience of working 1 2 1, one thing that reduces most people to tears is when they really get in touch with what they want and they say’ this is ME, this is really ME.’
Are you really being you? How can you move yourself forward with kindness, self love and gratitude? If you can move through guilt and fear and heal yourself then what could happen? How much more of you can be offered to others if you can heal yourself and embrace more of the ME that is waiting patiently inside? I remember reading a sentence that said ’instead of choosing to be right choose peace’. So how can you peacefully choose to be more of who you know you want to be and can be?
In his victory speech Obama said ‘This is our moment. This is our time – to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth – that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we cant, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people:
Yes We Can.
And YES YOU CAN TOO, CANT YOU?
See you soon
