holed up enjoying an unexpected week in a hotel room during a significant transitional time (moving homes), my heart asked for a treat.
One of my accountability partners, Lisa, has just returned from a vacation in Italy; she mentioned gelato quite a few times, and my heart said ‘yes, please‘. (Well, my heart said ‘yes, please’ to Italy–currently gelato is as close as we can get! And hi to Jody, my other accountability partner.)
With the intention of stepping across the road to my favorite local gelato place, I instead stepped into the Local Rock Picnic – an all-day event within Ventura Music Week.
(Literally in the park right across the street from my hotel!)
I *love* live music, especially rock music–an electric guitar riff played ‘just so’ stirs my soul.
As you can see in the photo, it was an overcast, very chilly for Southern California day.
But, I didn’t notice, because I had kicked off my shoes and begun to dance a bit; I stayed there for several hours–listening, dancing and people watching.
I think I was literally smiling.
(Last week, on the day I left the old space–completely packed up with no new space to move into– I didn’t think whole-being smiles would be possible anytime soon, but I kept re-centering into possibility.)
I stepped out for gelato and I ended up at the local rock picnic.
I have received many emails inquiring about our move. (Thank you! My children and I appreciate your love, support and generosity!)
So you might ask, why would I choose to share this story with you?
Because this move was one of miracles. It’s one thing to say that–it’s another to show you a real-life example of “how” opening my heart to be present to possibility specifically looks, so you may understand the energy and tap into it to create with in your life if you wish.
Each day something was perfectly placed, enabling me to feel the reality of infinite possibility.
My heart asked for a treat, so I listened, left my ‘comfort zone’ and unexpectedly stepped into utter joy could be the theme not only of the day I described above, but this entire move (and my life *grin*).
Understandably, while in transition, I could have pulled the covers over my head and railed against the Universe. But, that only draws to me chaos and pain and how could I possibly manifest wonder and delight from such a space?
Instead, I kicked off my shoes, felt the earth under my feet, and I allowed Universe to move me in all ways, with ease and joy.
So, I ask you: As you step with intention and awareness, what is the new space (energetically or physically) waiting patiently for you to step into? What is the first step you may take to get there?
The best timing ever (I can either cry or laugh, so I am choosing to laugh!): Pre-registration (including a 20% discount) for Dancing in Divine Dust is now open. When I originally created the structure for this class, I had no idea I would be dancing in the divine dust of a huge move! Here I am, about to launch this new class, after not having had internet for one week, having loaded up a new space in a new area with boxes of our stuff. Feeling my way through all of this newness. I wouldn’t have known this is how it would unfold–I thought I would be facilitating, and participating in, this class from the comfort of what I knew–ha! Oh, yes…let’s dance! We will be learning together!
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Unravel. Unfurl. Unfold.
About my reminder (above). I began using this intention to unravel, unfurl, unfold inner knots–and there were times in the last few weeks I could kick myself *grin*. You see, if one sets the intention to unravel a knot…one might then “expect” the knot to unravel…when one is intending that in life…one might then expect the structures around them to…(you guessed it!)…unravel!
So, while this move was unexpected, I can see with clarity how and why it came about. I am writing this after having spent the first night in our new space–what I wanted was love and light and the ability to stretch–exactly what was manifested! I will share more about this process in the future.
