Good morning my friend,
It is so lovely to be here with you, to scatter words lovingly across this blank page and share my thoughts, experiences and inner spaces with you.
I have flowers in vases in the house and the sweet scent of lilies, roses and freesias are tantalising me, whilst mingling with the aroma of my morning coffee, the day feel cocooning, with low enveloping clouds in the sky and the village feels so quiet today, almost depressed.
I, however, am feeling rather buoyed up, having had big week, some deeply nourishing interactions with others and a keen sense of emergence sparking my curiosity
I have been in a deep inner process recently, looking at my life’s choices, what I wish to create next and how I want to show up in the world.
With this inner knowledge, I can begin to flush out, detox and clear what no longer serves my new choices and begin again at this moment.
I like to think that with each new inhalation we are born anew and can let fall away that which no longer serves us with the exhalation.
It takes so much courage to do the deep inner work of self-inquiring into our beliefs, our habitual thoughts and how they either liberate or imprison us.
Our beliefs and habitual ways of moving, speaking, dressing, and day to day habits, can be held on to so tightly that they prevent us from seeing and knowing the truth. And sadly may us prevent us from being playful in expressing ourselves, or exploring the thus far unchartered waters within, our edges sour boundaries and the spav=ces we may softly move in to, to occupy ourselves in new and imaginative ways.
Especially when we experience situations time and again that may, in our present way of thinking, give evidence to our current world model.
It is both powerful and courageous to look at the lifetime of conditioned beliefs we hold and the willingness to see ourselves as the mirror image, and that it is our internal belief patterning that creates the world we occupy.
This is powerful, potent work.
It is ‘doing the work’.
As our beliefs enable our perceived identity of ourselves, it can be quite a challenge to replace them with beliefs that serve our highest good and the good of all concerned.
Of course, we may be fortunate and have some incredible beliefs that are rewarding, life-enhancing and serve us and our communities well.
We are, each of us a glorious blend of polarities, a beautiful and complex mix of our past experiences, ideals, beliefs and conditioning.
I find it exciting to enter a space where we no longer know who we are.
For example, moving house, city or even country, or changing jobs and career, embarking upon new relationships and casting off old burdens and unserving habits, which facilitates an inner and outer exploration in relationship to and with new environments.
I believe that we have an incredible gift that comes from developing awareness and rewriting our story so that we may live the life we desire.
We get to redefine ourselves over and over in this lifetime.
When we do this our whole paradigm shifts!
It takes courage and determination to do the work of healing, to address our patterns of thinking and living and create with a fresh canvas, a new perspective and grow the life we truly wish.
Perhaps you too have experienced this?
When we do let go and dive into a new experience of ourselves it is beautiful, brave, inspiring, an adventure!
Our beliefs either set us free or limit us.
“human beings have a great capacity for sticking to false beliefs with great passion and tenacity,” ― Bruce H. Lipton, The Biology of Belief
I have great admiration for anyone who embarks on refining themselves and creating a new experience of the world for themselves and their families.
I particularly love holding the hands of the women I am privileged to mentor through this process.
I also believe that when we
