Exploring the Possibilities

A morning in my office June 29, 2010

Freedom of choice is a good thing….a VERY good thing when you can manage it.

We’re all responsible for our choices, eh!

I’m liking mine today. Me and Ernie ‘at the office’….(you will see my computer screen in the distance).

I am filled with gratitude.

What Does it Mean to Turn a Corner? June 28, 2010

It might mean your heart changes.

Or that you let go of an old way of being.

That you finally did what you’ve been intending for so long but didn’t quite know how.

Or that God, the Universe, that awesome essence, light, power, jump-started an initiative for you.

Or maybe you just decided to stop feeling bad.

Or took a try at feeling good.

Or that you stopped sweating the big AND the small stuff.

Maybe you lost a few pounds, fit into your favorite jeans and those panties you kept in the back of the drawer (which are so cute) and you smiled because you knew it had so little to do with food.

Or maybe you stopped worrying about how people see you, if they ‘get’ you or how the chapter ends or when a new one will begin.

Perhaps a new person or experience catapulted you like a strong wind into a greater sense of possibility.

Maybe you realized that it’s not a corner you turned at all, but rather, your dance swirled you around to another view from the dance floor.

A better suited view giving you a fuller sense of ‘Wow, my Dad was right…it is going to be different for me than it was for him, it’s going to be easy!

…because I’m going to allow it to be.’

And this shift you know, because you weren’t hatched from your eggshell yesterday.

You know, it all has something or other to do with loving yourself differently.

And…..and, allowing yourself to receive, to receive that horn of plenty just eager to give you all those yummy goodies that you enjoy so very much. You know it’s true. And, it seems so obvious.

And you ‘get it’ just a bit better today.

And the word ‘forgiveness’ hits your forehead like a movie marquee.

And gratitude effuses from your pours like perfume from an atomizer.

And hoorah, a new day to breathe it all in.

And to say ‘thank you’ for all that is.

I Feel the Earth Move… June 24, 2010

….under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down,
tumbling down….

Those words were in my head soon after I awoke this morning. That and the memory that I’d dreamt I tattooed some emblematic design all over my face, a big blotch of blue on the right side, which I was happy I could cover with my hair. I remember there being a meaning behind it all….something with regard to Man Ray’s line in one of his paintings, ‘abandon of the safety valve’.

Dreams blow me away…mine do anyway….I wonder WHERE these images and thoughts COME from. I like it.

But, I’m not a tattoo kind of person…I prefer being more a chameleon, my colors changing as I do….clothing, jewelry, body shape and whatever attitude suits me best are better for me.

But this tumbling, not a bad sort of tumbling, but a rather good one. There is a shift occurring in my life just now….it reminds me of a chasm. Perhaps you are feeling one in your life as well. You may have to sit quietly to really notice, take some time by yourself.

I felt the need to look up all the meanings of chasm, (my mother taught me the love of both the dictionary and more importantly the thesaurus, both which I am delighted that I can now access speedily online).

chasm   [kaz-uhm] Show IPA
–noun
1. a yawning fissure or deep cleft in the earth’s surface; gorge.
2. a breach or wide fissure in a wall or other structure.
3. a marked interruption of continuity; gap: a chasm in time.
4. a sundering breach in relations, as a divergence of opinions, beliefs, etc., between persons or groups.

I resonate with the ‘a marked interruption of continuity; gap: a chasm in time’ definition. There is an air, a breeze bringing in a new way perhaps of viewing the world. Epiphanies are always, in my estimation, accompanied by a lovely breeze, IF we’ll but notice.

And so, and so, much like Carol King’s word, there is a tumbling down occurring. We are only as bold, aware, intelligent, loving, forthright, clever, compassionate as we’ll imagine we can be.

I am finding my groove, and that’s something for me to determine, move into and establish. And, it has something to do with the thinking I will or won’t allow in my life.

The Grand Canyon is a worthy example of design, space and creation. A soul (I’m talking all our lifetimes) takes time to establish itself, to orient, shift and create who it is meant to become.

And with that thought I wonder also, with that new discerning space, how I might begin to shift the very things which work to move me outside this new groove….when I become frustrated, overwhelmed, so very disappointed or sad?

A new groove is like having corrective lenses and I know about that. Each day I’ll need to apply my ‘contact lens’ no doubt.

For, when the earth moves, I move too and everyone around me. We may soon be looking in one another’s eyes…the shift can be that grand.

Hold on. Yes, hold on!

Nickelcreek MIGHT know. Only the curious have something to find!

How much? June 21, 2010

How much is too much….of anything?

Work, worry, ‘down’ time, wine time, control, fun, perfume, tv, talking, animals living in your home, family, sadness, alone time, being with people time, indifference, concern, defense, blame, ego, heart, hurt, caffeine, pressure, anger, flapjacks, Coco Krispies, disappointment, scheming, flying, creating, dreaming…

Just thinking.

Things are brewing. Keepin it big….expansive.

Like dazzling stars in the sky, each moment unique, each moment yours.
