I trust that all is well with you, if not, please take heart and reach out for the support you need most at this time.
I was feeling tired last night, so I was delighted when I woke up two hours after I usually would do this morning!
So now I find myself sat here, pondering, writing, and musing about what I hold dear and what I most wish to create in my life now.
Perhaps you are doing the same?
I see that so many of us are considering our lives, our motivations, our needs and desires, and what would best serve us now.
There is nothing quite like a global pandemic to bring us back to truth, to show us what is most valuable in our lives and what is out of alignment and unnecessary avenues of expending energy.
Perhaps the current global social and economic changes will bolster our courage to open fully to creating a life that feels more meaningful and in alignment with our deepest core values?
I certainly hope so!
This is certainly my train of thought at present, I find myself feeling in a more finetuned manner into the essence of what I truly desire to live, and experience, and create in my life now. Regardless of what came before.
I came across this quote from ACIM today, it speaks to me today.
“To Have Peace, Teach Peace to Learn It.”
- A Course In Miracles
Most of us would say, I believe, that we desire more peace in our lives, but how can we possibly achieve more peace if we are not practicing peace and therefore teaching it.
I would dearly love to get to know more about each of you, so I thought you may wish to know something more about me!
When we embody a certain quality, it becomes our lived experience and inspires others to do the same. We teach by example and learn in ever deepening cycles from teaching.
My journey with A Course In Miracles continues on it’s way today with lesson 30, God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.
I have found studying the Course a really lovely process, I have studied metaphysics for many years and I am finding it valuable to revisit the basics through this daily study, it is an anchor within my personal sadhana practice (daily spiritual practice).
What does your personal spiritual practice compose of? Do you have one? Have you thought about creating a daily ritual to anchor into and grow and evolve from?
I am feeling immensely curious about you today.
What motivates you? What inspires you? What are you passionate about? What are your core values? What are you working on within yourself?
With this curiosity about you in mind, I thought I would share with you some details about me, I hope you don’t mind!
Here are just a few of the things, out of a life I consider to be well-lived, that have influenced my personal journey, helping me to grow, and subsequently being inspired to support other women, women like you, are:
Negotiating a conscious and amicable Divorce - which served us all well
Home schooling my three children as a single, self-employed, mother
Being one week away from Homelessness - but manifesting our dream home at the eleventh hour!
Various brushes with ill health and absolute exhaustion - before learning to honour my own rhythms
Living with impaired hearing from an early age, and finding ways to cope on a day to day basis
Becoming and overcoming bankruptcy - long story
Experiencing and recovering from a traumatic miscarriage
I have re-invented myself over and over subsequently my career has changed and flowed with my inner tides
And some of my quirks and beliefs:
I share with an open heart
I believe in the power of divine Love, and the beauty it reveals to us
I feel that Love expressed and experienced in all its glory through a brave open heart IS the answer
I have the heart and mind of an artist, creativity is my close friend
Comuning with mother nature daily anchors me and lights me up
I am a resourceful, kinaesthetic feeler, empathic to others' journeys
I am a courageous adapter to all of life's ups and downs
I am a passionate explorer of the light and shadows
I give hugs with a heartfelt embrace
Seeing the divine in all beings brings me so much peace
I am writing a book - with plans for three more
I connect to Mother Nature with wonder - among the trees, dipping my toes in the ocean and dancing naked under the radiant full moon
I know that life is an adventure, therefore I am willing to change directions, learn new things, drop old beliefs, experience new horizons, try, try and try again... and shall continue to do so!
I practise yoga mostly off the mat
I love midnight walks
I live open heartedly and inspire others to do the same
I believe in freedom of choice and that one size does not suit all
I love to discover, learn and share new knowledge and understandings
I meditate mostly through movement, being right here, right now
I understand that our breath is our clearest indicator of how we are experiencing our life and ourselves, moment by moment... it is our constant companion, a point of connection in each moment
I LOVE oil painting, when my children were little, they used to say that their painting mummy was their favourite mummy
I believe that cooking and eating are a joy indicating a passionate love affair with all of life
I am secretly a pyromaniac at heart, as I never miss an opportunity to build, light and tend a fire
I know that by choosing our thoughts we change everything
I have a great faith in divine right timing
I would love to hear more about you, what inspires you, what you are working on within yourself, what you are passionate about, and what makes up your innermost being.
