Grounding

How do you stay grounded when everything is swirling around you?

Lately it feels as though my life has been upended.

Everything I know has shifted. It’s a time of huge transformation in all facets of my life.

Of letting go of the old and having faith that what is coming will be amazing. It so will. I can feel it.

Where is the safest spot in a tornado? At its very center, that is where the calm lies.

It takes courage, strength and faith to believe that I will come through this completely transformed. I KNOW I will.

It’s MY time. To live the life I have always wanted. To be of service to as many as I can through my gifts in sports psychology.

No more hiding. No more playing small. No more dimming my light. NO MORE.

I have a vision. I have peeps who love me, keep me grounded and cheer me on. I have faith in a force greater than me that will manifest all my heart’s desires. I believe.

I have manifested plenty in my life. The power of intention is huge. Where your breath goes, your focus goes. What you focus on expands. Make it intentional, amazing and big.

I am so mindful of my word lately. Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements have come back into my life at the right time.

The first agreement is to be impeccable with your Word. “Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.”

I have been challenged by that agreement repeatedly lately about the words I say to myself. The itty bitty shitty committee is fierce lately. Shut up ego. Enough.

When this happens, I return to breath and breathe. Deep belly breaths and as many as it takes to come back to center and to me.

My return to a stronger yoga practice helps, meditation helps, walks help. Returning to breath in the midst of a tornado helps. Repeating to myself I am safe, I am love and I am peace.

It’s a challenge to stay grounded amidst whirling dervishes and transformation. Self-care is key.

Step by step, moment to moment and breath to breath.

Breathe. All will be well.

Shift happens

Last night, on a patio by the water under a blanket of stars, I helped a friend shift.

My new friend believed that finding love was over for her.

She’s an amazing woman. Beautiful, smart, strong and sensitive. She’s raised two wonderful children on her own and thrown herself into a successful career.

In her fifties, having found love and having had her heart broken recently, she doesn’t want to get hurt again.

What a gift that love was. Now she knows there’s a possibility.

I helped move her through her limiting beliefs, into her emotions and her tears.

My friend is worthy of love. She will be alright and safe no matter what happens, however, nothing can happen if she doesn’t allow it to.

The image that came to mind was that a of a walled fortress with a drawbridge. Open the drawbridge I said. What’s the worse that can possibly happen?

She’s been dating but it’s been a series of misses. No kidding.

Healing happened last night. Shift happened.

I believe in the law of attraction. When you’re in a good space you will attract good things. Just as the reverse is also true.

My friend broke part of the shield that keeps her safe last night. I can’t wait to see what comes from it.

Being who she is, she’ll move through the rest of her process on her own.

I’m happy I was able to help her. To love her through her pain and know that she’ll come through it all transformed.

What a gift.
