Well...I'm feeling the impetus for change. There have been happenings in my soul's ether. Happenings I've not understood or initially embraced, but that I am coming to realise I need to stand up and pay attention to. I need to start taking some action in this direction otherwise my soul will not let me rest. I know it is right for the bigger picture and my higher purpose. But still, this is a time where fears arise and doubt seeps through. These can be overwhelming feelings that I need to accept, then harness and channel into passionate activity.
The difference, when I feel these sensations now as opposed to earlier in my life, is that I can label them as the universe giving me signs to leap into my potential. It is not safe to stay where I am and like Anais Nin proclaims:
'And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.'
I went through the hardest blossoming a few years ago coming out of a rough time with anxiety and I made many positive changes in my life. This week's sensations are shallower but similar. It is time to go through a chrysalis again and emerge lighter, on purpose and more beautiful than before.
I am also feeling excitement and energy; underneath all that is going on is the authenticity that you know is truly yours and yours alone.
I often say to people that you need to know yourself. And you need to do the things that make you happy in your everyday. It can be really hard to do when you feel responsible to others in your life, but in the end it is just that, your life. You are the one you wake with in the morning and go to sleep with at night. No other person is in there with you. So live the life you dream of. Design the life you see for yourself. Start taking action to do those things you love and that bring you joy.
I learned many things out of my experience. And I am still on a journey to live those lessons. The amazing manifesto below includes so many things I believe to be true.
So I'm going to take my own advice and make it as I wish SSSs!
I'll let you know what emerges...or jumps out with joy!
