Internal Guidance - Feeling Into The New Paradigm


I feel like I’ve just finished a very intense and in depth master class. If the course had a title it would probably be something like, “Adapting To The New Paradigm - Reading Your Energy To Know What’s Working”.  It’s been a totally immersive, 8 week lesson that started with looking at how much money my husband and I have and allowing the number to freak us the fuck out. So much so, that the only alternative we felt we had was to sell our home. The minute we decided this, it felt unbelievably sad and we both experienced a huge amount of grief around the idea of letting this “family member” go.

 After we worked through the grief, we set about engaging in a string of contract signing with several companies and individuals who wanted to buy our house. It was excruciating and confusing to watch each deal that we'd make, magically dissolve into big piles of steamy horse excrement. All the while, each step we took was bizarrely out of sync with our normal way of being in the world. Our decision was led entirely by fear, desperation and a clingy-ness that felt at times unbearable. We were snapping at each other and losing sleep, yet as each offer and contract fell away for one reason or another, we just kept at it….feeling more and more uncomfortable and stuck.

Yesterday morning, as we faced another day of fighting with the individual we were currently under contract with, we decided it wasn’t worth it. It wasn’t working. It hadn’t worked since day 1 and the way we physically and spiritually felt about it was ALL wrong. Our bodies were tired and sick from it  and in that moment, feeling into what it would be like to stay in the house… entire energetic makeup changed. I felt lighter and free and I knew this was the right decision. I asked my husband to imagine the same thing and staying in the house felt right and light for him as well. Within an hour we had broken the contract to purchase our home and both had the best night’s sleep we’ve had in weeks.

Has anything changed on the material level? Nope, not really, but our decision to go within and check on what FELT right feels like it’s shifted everything. I have a deep trust that things will work out simply by putting my attention on what fells right. I feel like I can hear internal guidance again and I feel hopeful. 

I believe this shift that’s happening in the world has everything to do with feeling and moving from a place of intuition and faith and nothing to do with forcing my dominance and will onto something. It’s bringing in a whole new level of “going with the flow”. Doing things the way I’ve “always done them” is now like banging my head against a wall that actually doesn’t even exist anymore.

As I lean back into the knowing that we will be sharing our life with this home for a little while longer, I feel held and comforted. This feeling of comfort brings in a wave of peace and an awareness that I am supported and that I don't have to know exactly how this will work out, just that it will.

I'm pretty sure I passed this course and it's nice to have a little break from Universe University. I hope the next session will be a bit less Intense. And as I type this I realize that's entirely up to me.

An Open Letter To Those Who Would Diminish My Fire

To whoever seeks to diminish my flame - consciously, unconsciously, maliciously or with the best of intentions, Thank you for your attention. Thank you for wishing me well and trying to save me or put me on the right path. Thanks also to those with an envious nature and hidden resentment, who choose to shoot invisible beams of meanness my way. Thank you, as this adds fuel to my fire...... and by the way, I am just fine.  My way may not look like yours. My way may look like nothing at all. My way, may even look as if I am lost or floundering, I assure you this is not the case. MY life is precious, encompassing the good and the bad. The hard parts are welcome just as the fun and easy stuff are. My life is plainly ornate, small in the biggest of ways and full in its sparsity. My life sparkles from the inside out and it suits me.  I have days when I feel weak and voiceless....I embrace them for I know they will come and go. I have days I feel on top of the world and that I a

Reciprocity And The Permission To Let Go

reciprocity : a situation or relationship in which two people or groups agree to do something similar for each other, to allow each other to have the same rights, etc. : a reciprocal arrangement or relationship Things have been asking to change in my life for awhile. As a result I now find it nearly impossible to show up for anything where I carry most of the energy. The over-efforting it takes to keep things alive leaves me tired and run down and I'm done. If you are in my life and are not holding up your end of things, our relationship will be changing. Please know this does not mean I love you less, it means I have to start loving me more. This turn of events will be applied across the board - work, family, friends, old habits - it all has to change.  As of this very moment I will only be offering up as much as I am given. Reciprocity.  The thought of not having to work so hard feels delicious in my body. The idea that I can do this and it doesn't mean I am giving u

The Art of Interior Activism

This weekend I spent much of my time in the studio having intimate conversations and creating with women in person and on Skype. Some of our time was held in sacred silence, where we met ourselves deeply with varying art supplies. Other times we painted, ending our time together with some potent conversation.  What I discovered was, f or whatever reason, there are many of us who are not called to attend rallies and demonstrations right now. And even though we are practicing activism in our own ways, we've been feeling like we aren't doing it right. We've even felt a little guilty and some shame for not showing up in the same way as (what feels like) the majority of our country right now. Not everyone has the time, money, physical strength or desire to attend rallies or protests. However, many of us do recognize the great chasm that exists in the US and know it is time to do something. This has fed our hunger to go within and become curious about the division going on
