WOW! That is my constant amazement at the world. Inner and Outer. I am constantly in awe at how people heal and support others in their healing, witnessing amazing people doing extraordinary things in our small Portland town. I feel honored to support all of my clients in their life paths and to be so lucky to live in the Portland bubble of like-minded individuals.
Then I feel the weight of the world and our mother earth heaving at our burden and those who do not respect her bounty. There is always a yin to the yang of life, and it has been another challenging year. I feel blessed to keep riding this cosmic wave of transformation and healing, but it has not been easy. I constantly wonder if I could be just like anyone else living in my car and learning that lesson of being humble. I feel lucky to have water, food, and primarily clean air. I have had another full year of clients and family in the process of healing those things that no longer serve me and attracting those that nourish and feed my soul. I have had a lot of letting go.
I recently read "It's Not Your Money. How to Live Fully from Divine Abundance. By Tosha Silver," a Christmas gift from a friend. I found myself choosing parts of the book like a tarot card reading and finding different inspirational gifts the author had to offer. One of those gifts I teach in my meditation class is not holding onto things that no longer serve us. The author's point is that when we have too much stuff or hold on to material objects, relationships, and ideas that take up space, it does not allow other intentions to manifest! So, I started cleaning out an office that was becoming a storage unit. I had goodwill, books, and other things I no longer needed. I did a lot of meditation around letting go. I did a lot of physically letting go.
I have been sharing my office with a colleague for about ten years, off and on. It has been an amazing, safe space for me to build my practice. Opening up my energetic and spiritual space then led to a change in the physical location of my office. That resulted in a physical shift in my practice space. I went through several discovery phases to figure out where I would practice. Then funny enough, the first space I opened at the beginning of my acupuncture career was open. That space allowed me to use all my gifts; one of those is teaching the meditation class.
I am so excited to have the space and time to teach again. The class focuses on the energy of roses and moving that energy out that is holding us back. Rose meditations are the most loving way to let go of the energy holding us back. I find these tools so effective.
The question this time is, what things do you need to let go of? How have you held back on something you felt was beyond your reach because of your limiting beliefs around money? What does it look like when you imagine your life and how it blesses you?
