What ENERGY! I just feel it all flowing through me and it is an incredible feeling. It is like I am in different worlds at the same time, giving me this incredible sense of perspective, understanding, and (to use my word of the year) GRACE.
I feel blessed to be alive and experiencing such exhilaration! Last night my family held a gathering to remember and celebrate the life lived by my aunt who recently passed. It was intense, beautiful, and healing on so many levels for most if not everyone who attended. To feel such profound gifts that come from a loved one passing on to another life, just leaves me in awe. According to her siblings, my aunt taught us all patience, enjoying life no matter how adverse the circumstance may seem, and to be free to live out our destiny once we have come to face our fate. To live from the heart.
A friend of mine posted the latest Energy Alert by Lauren Gorgo, and it is just an awesome read! It articulates and affirms so much of all the transformations occuring lately, and yet to come. Lauren really has a gift for conveying the ever-shifting energy that we are all experiencing!
SO in the name of simplifying, as I go through the day, I am aware of keeping simplicity in my life. I have been practicing more going with flow, just when I was beginning to think I was an expert at this. I realized I was getting caught up yet again, and what a wonderful realization, as I can now recreate the simplicity that nurtures me. It helps to also remember that I do thrive on socialization, variety, sponteneity, and well, chaos to some degree! So it seems (again) that the key is Balance. Saying yes to variety and chaos when it feels good, and saying yes to quiet, still simplicity when it feels good. And when things come up that don’t feel good, well I just tap back into my heart and TRUST the process.
I am really proud of how far I’ve come in this journey I’ve embarked on. What a collective energy life becomes for the soul! I took some big risks (emotionally, financially, you name it), trusting that when I made the choices from my heart it would be exactly what was meant to be. And you know what? Even when the choices aren’t made from the heart, it is what it is, and I still firmly believe that everything happens for a specific reason, whether or not we ever figure out what the reason is.
I even found my old blog and WOW. A lot happens just a few years!
All in all, it has been SO WORTH IT to follow what my heart is telling me, even if it is terrifying. Even if I am criticized for it. Being gentle with my heart, and forgiving myself when I choose things that aren’t true to my being, have been so important in nurturing my soul on this journey. Remembering that I am human, complete with a body, emotions, thoughts, and spirit. We are all doing the best we can with what we have.
I am so blessed to share this journey with you all!
May your day be filled with magic and heartfelt joy,

Also, a friend of mine I know as L.J. has recently launched her new website on Relationships. She is a fabulous writer with an awesome and powerful perspective on love and relationships. Her first post was on Valentine’s Day and it is a very important message for all of us. She followed up today with a post about expectations, as well as an exercise. I am excited to do the exercise when I sit down to reflect tonight! I think the message about how to live in the “new energy” in regards to relationships is going to be so powerful as we move through it all. Especially now, as Saturn is still in Libra (and currently retrograde, so time for re-evaluating, re-assessing, re-alizing, re-aligning, etc. in the area of relationships). This means it is time to think about what knid of relationships we really want or need in our lives, which ones truly nurture our souls, and which ones only serve to drain our souls. This goes for intimate partnerships, business relationships, friendships, family relationships, anything in regards to how we relate or connect with another person.
With that long addition to my post, I leave you with a sincere hope for your highest good in all your relations!
