Answers come to me when I least expect them. I’m a fairly self aware person. I also feel and read others energies and moods. I am fairly adept at this. I also have a sixth sense that I rarely talk about. I am very intuitive, and have been called a “a witch” by many people, different times (and not all men! ha!) Problems arrive when I am feeling the negative energies of others, as I have days where it seems every five minutes I have to outwardly, verbally tell myself “not to go there”. Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s exhaustion, maybe it is just the way it is, but I need much alone time to recoop now after spending time with others, particularly groups. Teaching exhausts me, I think because I’ve always felt I had to entertain and be “on” when I taught. A friend posted pics of me from classes I taught and I was happy. I remember the classes well and I always had fun, and I think I taught great classes. I just don’t think that’s who I am anymore, and I’ve accepted this, and am okay with this. What I mean here, is that I simply cannot keep the schedule that I used to, so my classes will be fewer and farther in between, as I have a new direction that I’m headed, in which I am very excited, focused, happy about. I LOVE to teach, and I want to preserve that love and adoration. I always want to feel that I gave a great, fun, good class. So I’m going to minimalize the amount that I do this so that it always feels good, and I can walk away happy, feeling accomplished, self pride.
What I want to really talk about is “the processing” of things, and how this happens for me. I can easily be consumed when I’m trying to figure something out. ADHD helps with this! There are times physically I have no energy or motivation, this is typically when I’m trying to accept or understand a situation. This happened recently. What also happened was a whole, draining emotional process that brought back unhealthy, painful behavior or REacting. I had lost my sense of self, I was doubting myself, and that is okay, the situation was unclear, open ended, unresolved. Then just when I am at my wits end and totally surrender to “what is”, this magical process happens, and clarity fills my mind and heart. Uncertainty and frustration has been replaced with gratitude. First, I want to say that knowledge comes from truth. This is important to know and accept. If you are not getting the truth, you will not find a resolution for the problem because you haven’t yet looked at what the problem is!!! I hope this sounds as profound as it feels. In short, look to trusted others, non judgemental, loving people to help you get to your truth! Self centered, serving and emotional vampires will suck the life right out of you if you let them!
I’ve been through quite a bit in my life. Can always be worse, and can easily find someone in much more dire situations than I have experienced. The hardships I have faced have helped define me. I am nothing if I am not strong. I am one very strong person. I have joked through difficult times that “I just want to be a feminine woman with painted nails and toe nails, because at times, the challenges and hardships had me feeling like I was becoming a neanderthal. And once you walk through some major shit in your life, if you are like me, you have little if no time for what I call “luxury problems”, or “drama”.
I’ve been changing at a rapid rate the past couple months. I’m wiser, smarter than when I started, but tonight I am at peace and I feel hopeful about getting flowers in my near future because I AM PLANTING THEM! ha!! Trust in the process, trust in yourself, because the answers will come when they are supposed to! I “forget” that sometimes and get caught in the crap!
Disappointments in people can be hurtful, even harmful. But when we find our “center” again, when we get back to who we are and what we’ve been through in life, we realize no one or no ones actions define us, and that is a very good thing. I am not talking about blaming another for your life, or circumstances. I am talking about taking responsibility for your life, your actions, and if someone has proven theirselves to you, good or bad, believe it! And then of course there is the giver and taker thing. Accept who you are, and who others are, take back whatever part of your life you’ve surrendered to places that leave you unsure, or feeling ill about yourself.
Have a lot I’m looking forward to, and have a whole new perspective on life and relationships. I believe in karma, I believe in the law of attraction, I believe I am the soul author or my destiny! Just wait and see what I accomplish! Note to self: Be humble!
How’s your book coming? Are you happy with your life? Are there things you want to change? Are there painful things you’ve been avoiding? Because I’m here to tell you, once you face them, once you look at them, your perspective changes, and you’re not the same person but hopefully a better person from your lessons.
Filled with gratitude right now. It’s a wonderful place to be. It’s also equally important to be humble AND teachable!
