Welcome to this Mini-Series on the
Unfolding Collage Wisdom of Life & Changes
You don’t always need a plan … That’s easier said than done! How about you? Maybe it was the way I was raised, because, there was always a plan. Life wasn’t in order if there wasn’t a plan. Then, there was a back-up plan for just in case, right? Wrapping my brain around not always having a plan has been a decades-long exercise in … breathing and allowing. If it was exercise in the physical sense, I’d be buffed and toned beyond belief ! ‘Don’t/Always’, are key here … because sometimes plans are necessary = Life. Reality. I’m encouraging the realization in not having a plan, is being open to possibilities that perhaps haven’t been thought of or imagined yet.
Sometimes you just need to breathe … I’ve noticed, breathing is a theme in my collage. It’s been a word I’ve used over and over with clients. Because, it’s so important. Many would get gold stars for shallow breathing … it’s the deep breaths that make a difference. That oxygen into our cells, is a bit of a miracle in itself. I practice mindful breathing, it’s amazing how my body softens and worries melt when I consciously pay attention to my breath. The long-term effects, for me … mellower in my response to negative events going on in life. I’m focused on the present, this moment. Now. So grateful.
A recent gift from a friend … Thanks, Karen!
Let go and see what happens … Wheee …. Yikes … BREATHE … This is where I acknowledge how grateful I am for the gift of faith. Letting go of the plans. Trusting and believing Spirit/God and I are ok. There is a time, a connection, a place greater than I can even imagine, all coming into place. Surrendering and accepting what is right now, is a relief and also a sense of excitement. Allowing life to surprise me in most amazing ways. And when I let go with ease and grace and nothing is happening … in whatever I deem is a reasonable time … then I’m ok with making a move to do something. It’s usually in-line with the whisper/nudge/tap I talked about in Collage Wisdom #1.
You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe. Let go and see what happens.
More to come!
Blessings and Love,
