How do you stay balanced when you are free-falling? There is only one way; LET GO. The balance is dynamic. The balance exists even as the circumstances continually shift and change inside our bodies, our hearts, our minds, our environment, our communities, our world. There is a ton of information filtering into our psyches at the moment. There is a great deal that we are considering. Decisions. Choices. Communications. So much is changing. Will we make the right choices? When we let go of the fear of making the wrong choice, we find our balance. When we can let go into the truth that all choices and paths lead back to ourselves, we find our balance and integration. These choices cannot be made completely from the level of the rational mind. These choices and course-corrections must come from the whole of who we are, now, in this moment. Trust your Self. Reach for that dynamic new balance by letting go into everything in your life as it stands right now. This week, clarity of choice and simplicity of action bring us into a new balance with life.
Stop. Take a deep breath. Look around you. Listen. Look at all you have accomplished-not just today, this week, or in the past few years, but all that you have accomplished in your entire lifetime. Showing up everyday is an accomplishment. Not knowing, yet exploring anyway, is an accomplishment. Trusting the process of Life is an accomplishment. YOU are Life's most amazing accomplishment! No matter where you are, or what you are doing, you have used your creative power to get here...and if you would truly look at your life without criticism or judgment, you would see that you have done well. Look around at all that you have created, and all that you have right now in this moment: friends and healed relationships, work and income, food and shelter, entertainments, balance and health. You are overflowing with abundance and wealth. This week, as you are celebrating all that you have to be grateful for, remember that you allowed and created all of this abundance. You are the creator of your life! And sure, you may have much you would still like to create, and you always will have more that you want...but right here, right now, your life is looking pretty darn good! Sit back and rest in this sense of awareness and completion. In the coming weeks and months, you will start out on new creative adventures. But this week, let yourself appreciate all that you have already accomplished. You deserve it!
And the wheel turns. On and on and on it goes. Each stop along the journey seems familiar. "Haven't we been here before?" Almost. Though the circumstances seem the same, everything is different. Everything is brand new. That includes YOU. Don't drag the past into the present. Clean it up, sort it out, let it go, and move on. What is in front of you can then be experienced with complete presence and innocence. It may feel like a wild roller-coaster ride this week, as the wheel turns, and your fortune seems to rise or fall. But truly, all is well. Whatever it is, turn it into opportunity. Reserve judgment untill later. The whole picture can't be seen quite yet. Let the wheel turn. Embrace CHANGE. Hold on to the center of your TRUTH, the center of your BEING. Without these changes within and without, EXPANSION is not possible. Trust this passage and let it flow. You are on the right track.
Sometimes, life hurts. No doubt about it. We are in this process of learning through trial and error, and there is simply no way to avoid feeling hurt, pain and tears. Just like joy, ease and comfort, tears are a part of life. With every tear that falls, there comes an opportunity to grow. Sometimes the reality can be hard to deal with, overwhelming and seemingly cruel. But the truth is that growing pains are a part of life. The truth is that we are loved beyond comprehension. The truth is that we are safe. The truth is that we are busy gathering experiences all about this play-pen we call the Universe...eternally safe and secure. But I know that knowledge won't always ease our troubled minds or wipe away our falling tears. If you feel like crying this week or like you are going through growing pains, breathe into it. One step, one breath, one moment at a time. That's all you need to concern yourself with. Let go as much as you are able and do your best to appreciate the little gifts life gives you. Life will never break your heart without the promise of a new one.
Storm and stress. These are the times we are in-on a collective level, and on a personal level. Are you feeling the winds of CHANGE? How can you not? The evidence is all around us. We are being swept up in unprecedented change that will ultimately benefit us all. But we may have to endure storm and stress, in the meantime. Birthing is a violent process. Any mother will tell you that! Hold on! Fight to be born! What is being born in your life, now? What is emerging through you? Like the Princess of Swords, you may have to stand courageously in the midst of chaos and strong winds within and without, while slashing away extraneous weight: thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you, static all around you, distractions that tempt you away from TRUTH. New truths are now erupting from the depths of your soul. WHO ARE YOU? ARE YOU AWAKE? There. In these times of change, your power is your clarity and truth. Stand up. Be brave. Soon the dust will clear.
