I would like to take this time and invite all of us to take a moment and send - a prayer – energy – thoughts -to those who have been forced from their homes and livelihoods.
There is no doubt that this is an astounding time of change. I am humbled to be reminded that we, as a people, exist on so many different levels. Reminded that what happens in one place will inevitably effect another. Every layer of our reality is being transformed in some way at this time. Now, if you are like me… you have been contemplating your navel (er… well I am one to do that)… You may have missed the memo which is telling us that we are in a time of profound transformation. Of course, that is not to say that we are not ALWAYS in the midst of transformation and growth. I mean, we are beings which evolve. I am pretty sure our kids will be faced with more intense lessons of change, as our parents were faced with their own trademark of earthy alteration. On some level what is old is new again.
Personally, I have been pretty humbled to witness all the vast changes that are happening not only out in the environment and global markets…. but in my personal life as well. There is so much transition right now…. I am becoming more aware of the fear this creates for most of us; of how resistance to change helps create more of an uncomfortable experience in some people’s lives. One of the most transformational people I know, Ken Tucker, says “Pain is resistance to feeling” (btw amazing bodywork! If you are ever in the DC area check him out!). All of these changes have produced so much fear. So many of us can get so caught up in the day to day drama of life we forget to take time to surrender to the truth that there is something greater that dwells within each of us. It is essential that we not allow this fear to get in the way of our deep knowing… Be present and stand in your truth!
For those who know me, it is safe to say that I am not the most “New Age” person around. Spiritual, silly, blunt. Yes, even sometimes odd…. Super woo woo, um… no. I believe that we can create change at any time. Treat your fear like a flame… a small bit can be a candlelight to light your way. If you allow it to get out of control it will consume you and everything around you.So this month’s newsletter is all about helping you to help yourself. I am sharing some suggestions which I feel will get you on the way to your own personal state of empowerment and positive transformation.
To quote Marianne Williamson…“Personal transformation can and does have global effects. As we go, so goes the world, for the world is us. The revolution that will save the world is ultimately a personal one.”
Remember you are LOVED.Be gentle with yourself…and Create a beautiful day!
