Danielle LaPorte poses this question: “What would your life be like if you only did what was easy?”
Her thoughts arrive as a timely affirmation of my cultivation of love and gratitude as the foundation of my movements, connections, and creations.
When my heart is full of joy, it sings, overflowing effortlessly…movement is with ease, connecting is enlivening, creating is a wonderful experimentation with skills and technique.
(Can you feel the ease in that? Ease amplifies freedom!).
From such a space, I vest full presence into this moment, all moments, because curiosity invites me to explore. With wonder and awe, I lean into learning; full trust inviting me to take steps into areas previously unfamiliar.
I find that I have so much conditioning to release around the word “easy”, so I release it. Because what I want to feel in life is fulfillment; this conditioning acts as a barrier to that fulfillment.
I find that life is “easier” when I embrace simplicity.
Now that I have learned the power of full presence, simplicity is a space I center into and create from. (I used to shy away from simplicity, because it was a wide-open space in which “lack of” was quite obvious). The spaciousness within simplicity invites transparency, radiance, depth, exquisite detail, excellence, whole-body nourishment and celebration!
This moment is full of abundance, and I want to absorb that feeling into my being.
That is my surface layer answer to Danielle’s question; let’s look beyond that to inner core. Because my mind (and perhaps yours) says, easy hadn’t been familiar to me, and mainstream doesn’t tend to approve of the “easy way”.
When I choose to live in alignment, drawing to me that which resonates, all that I do is ‘easy’.
The “work” is in choosing what I wish to center into, consistently practicing full presence to unfolding within organic growth, “tweaking” my resonance to harmonize with flow and abundance. From this space, I recognize that the power of my thoughts truly creates my reality, so “having it” is as effortless as thinking it.
A very simple example of this is that within energetic circles, my peers use examples of bird feathers floating into their life as affirmation of Divine. My mind says how is it possible that a bird feather would simply show up as one moves through life. My heart says, oh yes please, I would like that.
Yesterday, while on the beach, I arranged my spot in the sand, turned to the water to take a photo, and found this feather right by my towel.
What would be possible if we understood the ease of harmonizing with flow and abundance?
What if creating and connecting was as simple as: yes, please…I want that…and because we are asking from alignment, it was perfectly placed…just like that…
(I weave energetic application as I create and connect. The orange color represents this energetic application. Just skimming those phrases, feels good…and when we feel good we trust enough to explore the message, even if it feels unfamiliar).
What is one way that you might incorporate the concept of ease into your movements today?
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.
