Here’s the Thing … Collage Wisdom #2

20181104_070635_HDR

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,

Namaste

Dancing to the beat of my heart …

Life doesn’t always play out like I think it will.  After a whirlwind romance, reality started its dance.  It’s hard when the rhythm and the beat aren’t synchronized.  No matter what my head and the heart wanted to say, my body was like an opposing magnet, saying “pay attention”.  The body has an uncanny sense of truth.  It doesn’t lie … “trust your gut” is what I tell clients … it just took me a while to practice what I preach.

The whirlwind romance is over.  I’ve learned alot about myself. I’ve had to think about what my life purpose is at this point in my life … and honor it.  Being true to myself, has opened a stream of music, that has me dancing and my feet tapping to the beat of my heart!  I love it!  Ideas are flowing, get-togethers are planned, energy is clear and bright as sunlight sparkles in the autumn air.

Someday, perhaps, I’ll have a partner to dance with …

For now, Life has me encircled with incredible people, dancing, clapping and holding each other up, celebrating the gift we are to each other.
