When truth and guidance are trying to get your attention, they come in different ways. And when we listen, our lives unfold in powerful ways.
The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind Caroline Myss
Good morning Beauties~
You haven’t heard from me in several weeks because I’ve been in the midst of one of the biggest changes and transitions of my years.
I’m in Newport, Rhode Island! It’s incredible. Every kind of beautiful that feeds my senses and my soul. I keep saying that I am pinching myself to be so close to the ocean, to be able to walk to absolutely everything, to have all these parks and ancient trees and gorgeous shops and new people. There’s so much filling me up right now, even with the decision to separate from my darling husband, Andy. More on that another time. Right now I feel moved to talk about something that I believe will serve you.
We are lovingly guided all the time. All the time.
And what fascinates me and what I want you to hear is that it comes in all sorts of ways. It wants to find you- truth wants to find you and help you choose from the teeny tiny to the great big huge. We get guidance on all of it.
Last year when I was getting clear that my Sacred Contract around my marriage to Andy was getting ready to end and take another form, the way that clarity came in via a certain song on my yoga playlist.
That song just got stuck in my head…for days at a time. I hadn’t always known the words of it but now I heard them clearly. And they were an incredible and accurate mirror for my experience. And I literally couldn’t ignore the truth that wanted to land. Believe me I tried. Leaving a marriage at 58 ain’t for the faint-hearted. But I knew.
The truth that wants to find you may not come in on a song. It may come in through your body. Or a dream. Or hearing people talking about the same thing wherever you go. It might come in on a book. Or an attraction to something very specific. Like a Beech Tree.
I have fallen in love with a particular tree nearby. An ancient majestic beautiful Beech. It’s incredible. I can’t stay away from it. It has magic and mystery and comfort and something very sacred that is lending its powers to me right now. No, I am not crazy. The mystical is all around us…you and me both.
And as I read about the history of the Beech, it’s lore and healing powers and such, again, the messages are so clear and truly uncanny.
I visited a dear friend recently. Who told me about 3 women who were having major physical challenges. Big scary ones. My friend and I were aware that all of these women had been resisting some big piece of a truth that had been trying to find them. One was staying in a job that was literally killing her because her husband wanted her to for financial reasons. Another was hanging onto a relationship even though she could see her new life calling her towards real happiness.
So often these kinds of things literally become our biology when we don’t listen to the guidance. We’re scared. We want it to be different, we wish and hope “it” will change so we don’t have to.
But we are meant to change, to evolve, to bring forth our singular gifts and dance with the new. And yes, it scares us to step into that realm.
I could tell you not to be afraid. I could tell you that the most incredible things happen in the times when nothing seems clear and the path is muddy and hard to see. I could tell you that there is something getting ready to come into form that will make your life new and fresh and deeply satisfying.
And those things are all true. For me and for you.
But first we have to open to what’s trying (and trying) to get our attention. What’s trying to make itself known to you? What wants to fall away now? Can you imagine that the falling away will allow space for the new and wonderful to take root?
This is where I LOVE to meet you. Love love love these times when you aren’t sure if it’s safe to listen to guidance, you don’t really trust it, don’t trust yourself to interpret it in ways that will “work out”.
I’m here. Together we’ll look and listen and find the kernels that want to help you find more life and more beauty- and the how to’s that let it unfold with more ease and certainty.
Or, if you want to chat for a few minutes with me to see if we’re a good fit just hit “reply” to this email. xoxox
With so much love and every blessing,
