Strange… I don’t seem to notice anymore where one year ends and the next, begins! For me, it is an endless flow – with fewer and fewer distinctions throughout that flow to distract me from the flow, itself, as the force of change.
I noticed long ago that moments of passage – like birthdays, anniversaries, etc. – held no meaning for me, despite the value placed on them by the culture in which I live. Hallmark Moments, all, left me devoid of any need to engage. What I was mindful of was fully engaging every moment, as it flowed through my being.
These last few months have been very busy, indeed! Through the passage of this time, moments of great change have directed and redirected the currents of my life in meaningful and profoundly-altering ways. I breathe… I engage… and I find myself standing in a new place, in a new way. As I look around, I am aware that I am completely without any sense of destination or path; and that I know only trajectory. What will be there, in the flow of it presenting, and what I will find at the so-called ‘end’ will all be part of this Great Adventure that is MY life! I’ll keep you posted…
These last few weeks have been filled with the preparation of a new audio series for ACES – and I’m lovin’ every minute of it! I get to recapture such amazing and inspirational moments as I listen to these courageous women reclaim their lives – adamant in their commitment to their evolution of Self, no matter what! As I listened, I became aware of an intertwining that was occurring.. a dance between speaker and listener… recognizing that the power of this intimate flow was not in its content but in the design of that Flow, itself. What follows seeks to capture that moment, within myself, shared with others. I offer it to you, that you may find something new for yourSelf.
What you are about to listen to is one woman’s journey through her own accelerated evolution. As you listen, allow yourself to go beyond the content of the words that she’s saying, and listen for the vibration of who she is and, perhaps, has not yet come to know herself to be.
Listen for the sound of her commitment to her own evolution; to her willingness to stay in that tough, tough conversation with herself; and to her unfaltering determination to find that which she seeks.
Listen for the chaos and confusion; for the underlying current of caution and self-preservation; and for the great desire to find a new place to stand!
And perhaps more than all of these, listen for your own evolution in the generosity of her gift to all of us, in her willingness to go first.
Recognizing that if it resonates within you, it lives in you, listen for the potential in your own evolution if you allow that wave to move, in you.
Recognizing that we are each an expression of the consciousness of another, in living tissue in a material world, allow yourself to be awakened to that which may lie buried… waiting for the voice of another to awaken you to its presence.
And recognizing that we are Beings of Light, designed for transformation in the nano-second of a single breath, invite what calls to you, inside of you, to be revealed.
It takes courage to be willing to reveal; to move beyond that often dark and lonely inner rumination that goes on and on – sometimes for an entire lifetime! – to become the emanation of a life lived OUT LOUD and in full view!
But it also takes courage to be willing to hear; to stay present – inside yourself, where you live – when another speaks with such raw and visceral longing for herSelf.
It takes courage to relax into yourSelf in the face of another’s reflection of your own vulnerability; in those moments when all that you fear is served up to you, through the vibration of another; and rather than escape – rather than change the subject, move away, become distracted – you stay present to yourSelf and, through that, with another in that shared exploration of what can feel like a dangerous place.
And when we do; when we find that courage inside ourselves, we move closer to that which we are intended to be. Something within softens and loosens; and once again, we come to know a greater truth about WHAT we are and why we chose to be here.
It’s not always easy and it’s not always fun; and it is, without doubt and hesitation, the most meaningful, sustainable – and effective! – way for us to find our way Home.
Let this one woman’s journey become the invitation to invite and allow your own courage to become the song that sings your Authentic Self into being!
