Women! As a collective, we are about to shake the world awake with our greatness! How do we support each other and source what is necessary to do so? Well, one requirement is being a replenished tank of loving fuel! What does that look and feel like? Recall the instructions during take-off in an airplane, “Put our oxygen mask on first before assisting others.” How can we possibly give to another if we’re not breathing enough oxygen ourselves?
As a species who tend to put ourselves last, how can we fully embody the notion, “I am as good to others to the degree I am with me?” This is the notion of my book, Me With Me which offers methodologies to step on this pathway. However, let us shake it up a bit more, together, in one space where you can learn the methodology I created whilst in a 5-year rite of passage. After all, this illness began immediately after publishing the above said book. Life was giving me a deep examination in practicing self-care and what transpired is my contribution to the world today.
I’ve worked with many women, most of whom feel depleted especially during life transitions. Shall we say ‘farewell’ to that unworkability, together? While the insanity of this world is growing, creating distance between nations, countries, cities, families and our internal landscape, this is not time for us to ‘fight.’ As the feminine energy rises, we are learning to engage receive mode rather than over-giving. We get to choose flowing with the currents rather than pushing the river. Magic occurs in this place! Ever since my adrenal exhaustion, I navigate life from a place of child-like wonder where flow is current and opportunities abound. For example: Getting out of my own way by patiently waiting for the ‘nudge’ – then taking responsible action – flowing in the let-go – riding the magic carpet while staying grounded – then being in awe of what transpires before my very eyes! Whew! A scary ‘non-controlling’ experience for most, yes?
So my dear one, are you ready to put fear on the shelf and choose child-like wonder to fuel you? If your answer is “Yes, but how?” I can help guide you there. First we must navigate life through a new lens that offers pause, curiosity & neutral view, thus disengaging our automated interpretations which lead to resistance. Resistance is wanting life to be different than it is. Whether that is an aversion (push away) or attachment (craving.) – now the emotional charge has lost it sizzle. FREEdom is at play and is yours. Rather, you ARE already connected to your inner freedom and now easily access it.
Can this freedom be easily attained? Well, the goal is to experience more ease and joy while simultaneously allowing your own pace and path to unfold. Visible Transitions methodology can certainly deepen and quicken your results along, as it is a visceral experience. Although sharing our values, intentions and goals through conversation and journaling has merit, my methodology supports new neurons in the hippo-campus which is our chamber for learning and creating new patterns/habits. That is to say, when you take a picture of something important to you: say an intention, value or goal, this visceral experience deepens learning on a cellular level. The result is a bounty of consciousness and present moment tendency, thus easy access to what you say is most important.
To illustrate, I lead a mother and her three daughters on a photo walk-about. We chose Friendship as the topic. As we walked a long, the qualities of friendship were illuminated for the girls. They chose trust as one of their top three values. I then asked, “What does trust look like?” They all looked at me strangely with a response, “Uhm, I don’t know! I never think about that!” After a while the youngest says, “Oh I know what trust looks like! Me telling my sister a secret and her keeping it confidential!” This youngster then instructed her sisters to pantomime telling a secret! Do you think the value of trust will remain more in her consciousness after documenting it? Indeed! Do you think trust will be more accessible to her in times of conflict with her sisters? Absolutely.
With curiosity and gratitude, Janet
