spring abundance

spring abundance

I know, we’re waiting for rain…

Spring is ready with all that bursting energy, I’m ready…
So ready, I’ve filled my dance card! Wonderful things on their way.

It wasn’t always like this for me. I used to feel like I was waiting for life to happen. Waiting for it to start. Waiting until I became a proper grown up (or something!) to start all those things I dreamed about. I hadn’t realised I was saying no. A lot.

I was saying no. A lot

 

Maybe I had this “NO!” from my older brother who teased and taunted me as a kid. Regardless of the conditions that planted the pattern, it took me until my 30’s to see how this “no” hampered my life. My path was unclear. I was mired in doubt and confusion.It’s not that “no” is a bad word. Using it keeps us safe from all manner of potential abuse, but I was overusing it. It was like driving around with the brakes on. Lots of energy, but not getting very far. Maybe you’ve had this experience too??

Driving around with the brakes on

My first “Yes” was starting my Yoga Teacher Training in 1997 (yes, that’s 20 years ago!!). Slowly, my “no” to life, changed to a “YES” to life.

I’m profoundly grateful for the path

Now it’s YES!

(My brother and I even owned a house together for some time. We’re good now 🙂

Even so, now the brakes are off, I can still struggle to find that balance between going with the flow and structuring life so that it works for me.

Is now the time for graceful feminine unfolding, or do I need masculine scaffolding and effort to make sure things get on the list and get done?

How do I even recognise this struggle is happening in me??

If doubt, confusion and stuckness arrive… I say “hello my old friend”

And we dance!!!

As we all pray for rain… Join me…
