the journey continues…

learning…growing inward these past few months. it’s not easy opening yourself to change. with each change comes with it growing pains that take on a life of their own. three main themes have spearheaded this change…

  • imagination over memory:  essentially to begin living from what i imagine my life being rather than allowing the memory…whether that be genetic, circumstantial, familial, etc…regardless leading with the imagination of heart and mind to become…
  • behavior aligning with belief:  to practice implementing those behavioral patterns that are in rhythm and congruence with what i believe my life to be
  • i possess nothing yet i am connected to everything:  i have learned a great deal about the fact that nothing is mine. i am in control of no one. control is an illusion. it is an illusion that contracts the heart rather than living into the freedom that i possess nothing which allows the heart to expand, to let go and rest in the interdependent nature of life. we are all connected and meant to love not possess.

these truths have come at a unique time in my life. they are taking their place both personally and professionally as i let go of old patterns, old roles that perhaps once served me, but no longer. it’s often painfully fascinating to feel the old ways contracting my ability to love and then i remember to let go and to imagine how i want to be and then almost immediately my heart and my mind begin to expand…releasing fear and feeling love.

the journey continues…
