September 2011: Getting Ready for the Show
This month there is mounting excitement, the sensation of a growing underground wave that is nearly ready to burst free into glorious being. Everything is electric. The very air snaps with joyous expectation. Impatience for trending change is on the increase. Everyone and every thing seems more alive, more awake, more on the prowl for What Comes Next.
Is this you? Did you wake up this morning wondering why the walls around you, your bed, your face all still look the same, because this morning – this morning – you were convinced that in the night, while you slept, you finally dreamed your Real Self and the Real World into being? Are you waiting for the world to catch up with your dreams?
Along with the excitement and anticipation of the manifestation of the growing undercurrent of change comes … disappointment. Impatience. Disconnection. Sadness. You can feel that you are ready – oh so ready! – to take the reins of your life and to step into the You that you have been dreaming into being, but … it’s not there yet. Not quite. And so there is fear. Fear that the change will never happen. Sadness. Sadness that you aren’t yet all that you know you can be. Anger. Anger that the world has yet to catch up with you, anger that the world has yet to catch up with itself.
And joy. Do not forget joy! Underneath all those feelings of lack and disempowerment is real joy. Real joy! Remember why you are here? Why you first took breath in this body? You are here because you chose to be. Right now! In this world, just as it is, in this moment. And why? Because you can make a difference. Your life has meaning. And there has never been a better time to bring that into being. Right now. This month, this week, this day, this moment. This breath. Now.
Take a moment. Close your eyes. Imagine in front of you the most delicious, luscious, juicy fruit you have ever tasted. Look at it. The color of it, deep ripe color, bursting forth with life. This is your harvest! Now breathe in your fruit’s delicious scent. Breathe it right into you, the scent of ripeness, of a glorious moment, of Now. Breathe it into you and down into your heart, your feet. Now feel your feet grow roots, right into the ground, soaking up all the rain and sun goodness that the soil has been collecting for years, waiting just for you, in this moment. Hold your fruit now in your hand and feel its weight. You can almost taste it, this delicious heavy ripe fruit just waiting for you, for the right moment. Bring your face right to it and breathe it in again. It is almost time. Almost time to take a bite, one juicy bite, a bite of YOUR fruit, your delicious fruit. You will taste it when the time is right. Know this and feel satisfied at the beauty of your inner harvest. Read the rest of this entry »
