It has been nearly two years since I wrote on this blog. I was (and still am) undergoing huge changes in my life and I needed a break from putting my thoughts out for others to read. It was an intensely beautiful time of sharing my thoughts with myself, and starting to feel and know myself from a place of more kindness, instead of always wanting to get to the next healing and next place inside that was broken.
Today is June 24, 2016 and it feels like a remarkable day, like a day for a new beginning, once that has already started, and possibly started way before I was born. Today, I listened to my heart, that so sweetly and preciously encouraged me to contact my colleagues to see if I could start teaching yoga and breathing and relaxation sessions at work. I have done similar activities in the past, but this step forward was different. I felt it rise up from within me, with no regard for judgement from others or fear about what others might think of me. It was like a deep power rose up from within me, a passionate power that was ready to shine and share its gifts with the world. It was an honour to feel that strength and passion and to fully connect with it and allow it to guide me. I recently met a part of me that has been shut off from my awareness for what feels like hundreds of years. It is a part of me that is passionate, vulnerable and willing to be open and fearless. I wasn’t able to recognize it at all at first, but it spoke to me urgently, asking me to pay attention, to nurture it, to acknowledge it, to welcome it back home into my heart. I figured that out this past Tuesday and there has been a growing opening within me, where that passion and freedom is taking root and is helping me spread my wings. It is both awe inspiring and slightly scary, because it has no regard for limitations, fears, or anything that has held me back before. It is also humbling, because I feel that the timing is so beautiful and that life is holding me so tenderly and preciously so that I can accept the amazing gifts of passion and courage that have been locked away within me, waiting for this very time in my life.
May you know it is safe for you to shine too, just as I am allowing that safety to envelop me during this highly transformational time. Many blessings of peace, love, courage and faith to you.
