Preparing for Great Change

The following was recently published on The Daily Sisterhood Blog and I decided to share it here as well:

These words have been brewing for a bit waiting to be released in written form.  I don’t know what will emerge as I open myself to allow my thoughts to flow.

I mentioned a few months ago, feeling like I am in a process of birthing.  I have more clarity surrounding that process now. There is a big wave of change coming and I am preparing.   I could say it will be and already is a significantly defining moment in my life. I feel that within every fibre of my being.

I have spent the past month and a half engaged in some deep self-healing/transformation and have more to come in the next few months.  I have been having visions of important actions for me to take over the next while to bring closure to this phase of my life so I can move forward freely into the next.  I am fully committed to this process, not holding back any longer.  I am no longer waiting for certain things in my life to line up, or other people to let go, so that I can go forward.

There has been some grieving through this process as I acknowledged the transition to Spirit one of my mentors, a woman who has had a great impact on my life.  She will continue to have a presence and significance in my life as I move forward.  There are other forms of grief being processed within me as I release attachment to roles I have played in order to make space for the new.

In the last few weeks there have been a few events happening around me that have been in my thoughts.  I am not sure exactly how it fits into my process at the moment, 

but I have been able to observe without attachment.  Something that would have triggered me in the past brought to my awareness compassion and empathy.  I was very aware that I was no longer angry and wasn’t even interested in going there when others attempted to pull me into it.

When I began to feel the deep pain of the situation, instead of reacting to it, I chose to spend some time in meditation, sending love to all those involved.  It brought to my awareness that the most important thing for me to do in that moment was to shift my energy.  Doing so brought me a sense of peace.  Everyone involved had lessons to learn, including me as the observer.  I am grateful for this new level of awareness.  I feel somehow this is an important part of the process I am in the middle of.

I have an awareness that the karmic lessons of my life are showing themselves once more to challenge me to move through them.  Instead of feeling powerless, I embrace my power and create space for my light to shine through.  I embrace the expression of the Divine that I am.  I am shedding the old layers I have carried and blossoming into a new way of being and living.

As I write this, I bring my awareness to the beauty of life that surrounds me: the plants that I have been gifted to care for lined up in front of my window, all the trees out my front window that create a magnificent canopy over the road and house along the street that I live on.  I enjoyed an afternoon at the lake a few days ago, feeling surrounded by the coolness of the water and aware of the majestic sky carrying amazing cloud formations.  Life is really magical when I observe what surrounds me.

Every moment I experience is an incredible blessing.  I am grateful for the lessons, for the continuous challenge to shift my consciousness, raise my vibration, and support others as they do the same.  I am grateful to be at a place in my life where I can step fully into my divine calling, completely surrendering and trusting the road will reveal itself as I continue to take steps forward, and knowing that I am fully surrounded and supported in the process.

Blessings to you.

The Mandala

January 3, 2014


I had the opportunity recently to participate in a Shamanic Creativity Workshop.  It was an incredibly beautiful experience.  During the course, I was guided to create a Mandala, and to write about the process as this creation evolved.  Each element of the Mandala and each segment of the insights written below followed periods of meditation, reflection or moments of inspiration.  The journey to create this piece and the insights gained during this creative process are more significant than it...

With an Open Heart

April 23, 2013

 

My heart is opening, expanding, and the more I allow the light to come in, the brighter it radiates from me.  More and more, I feel joy, and the sadness that used to have a lingering presence deep within me has slipped away.

This is happening because I am stepping into a new way of being – or maybe rediscovering and reconnecting with who I am and always have been.  The layers that have shielded and protected this soul from showing itself in its most authentic form are slowly being peeled aw...

Healing

October 9, 2012

  Last night I had an experience that has taken my journey with transformation to a whole new level. I experienced a session of a combination of Theta Healing and Reiki. By the time this blog post has been published I will have taken a Basic Theta Healing Course. I am very excited about this. 

My intention with having this session was, in part, wanting to learn more about Theta Healing before I take the course and, on another level, wanting to release some energy I have been holding onto. I ha...
