💛With nowhere to go, we meet ourselves.
This is where we have been going all along.
(Gratitude brings you fuel for future manifestations)
What was your life like 12 months ago, Beauties?
What have you learned?
You know the feeling, don't you?
Those quick gasping little breaths; alternately breath held and body frozen.
We’re beginning to emerge from our cocoons, Beauties.
Have you found your purpose?
Your reason for living in this time… right now?
I’d like to offer my thoughts here:
The Beloved and I have really appreciated the gift of so much quiet and peace in our lives, and we found ourselves a tad disappointed when more vehicles began racing up and down the motorway ~ when queues at McDonald’s were 2 km down the street ~ when fast food takeaway places were closed by the police due to the extreme queues and inability of people to continue remaining in safe space.
Wow, so not what we were expecting.
We're almost at the conclusion of our Level 4 experience here in New Zealand; seems to be a perfect time to inventory our personal journeys.
Are you ready?
What a fascinating time this has been: we are each in the process of re-birthing ourselves in this quiet space, allowing us to become a higher frequency, a more evolved aspect of the Divine. What a joyous time we have chosen to be alive ~ as we shed more and more of the old, we embrace more and more of the new: new light... new hearts... new ideas... new minds...
Day 15 as I write this...
Many shifts have occurred to this halfway point in our lockdown; there is a definite sense of ease, self-empowerment coupled with loving softness on this journey.
It’s Day 10 as I write this.
Full-on peace and calm in my world, almost like my own private vipassana retreat. What an incredible opportunity we’ve been given, with all the quiet and seemingly endless days, to create our reality.
We each have a spectacular Super Power ~ we often talk about it ~ we say we absolutely know this is true about ourselves ~ and by and large we don’t generally put it into practice.
It’s Day 5.
How’s your journalling coming along, Beauties?
We all know that journaling in the morning sets you up to have the day you want, so how, in the midst of lockdown, do you keep the positivity going?
For 30 days.
I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well during these troubled times we're all going through, Beauties.
As I played with the jaguar (aka Black Cat) outside the other day, the cool wind blew on our faces, the afternoon sun struggled to push through the clouds, and we noticed all around the signs of Autumn, and everything beginning to soften... to fade... to grow down. I thought about how we're shifting into seclusion right now; beginning what feels like a collective decent or initiation.
✨Tomorrow's my birthday.
🎂I'm one of those people who takes unadulterated delight in this yearly celebration, knowing that it's not about the number of years or candles on the cake, but rather the acknowledgement of a life... my life.
💛And I'm feeling grateful.
✨''I think midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:
✨Do you notice all the signs the Universe shares with you?
🌷For a while.
✨Choosing to gift myself with a social media detox, Beauties.
🌷For a while.
✨You've started. Begun. Put a toe in the water.
🌷And how does it feel... today?
✨Start where you are.
✨Voluntary simplicity means
🌷Going fewer places in one day rather than more...
🌷Seeing less so that I can see more...
🌷Doing less so that I can do more...
🌷Acquiring less so that I can have more.

✨"Finding yourself" is not really how it works.
✨You aren't a ten-dollar note in last winter's coat pocket.
✨You are also not lost.
