I know – sometimes life just sucks
Compassion can be excruciating—it’s the medicine.
Listening is an underrated hobby.
Be INTERESTED. And please, just meditate, ok?
Love is the most inefficient and often inconvenient way to Ecstacy.
But… Ecstacy, well it blends beauty with freedom cos the one cannot live without the other. I’m so in. If you orient your whole life around doing THE MOST LOVING THING… you get strong, braver, fucking resilient. So lion hearted. Heart-strong.
Thanks Danielle La Porte for the reminder!
Thank you to everyone who poured light into my life this year. As for my personal new year, I’m going for simplicity in the way women walk with lion hearts
(hint – I am taking my love notes into podcast format – are you in?) and transgeminal forces
(I made that up ‘cos it sounds & feels magik’al)
through the beautiful,
the awesomely gnarly adventures
& messy life lessons.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
That is why today
Today, we will talk about letting go.
Why? Because I am 2 days in to my 52nd year and why not – wade knee deep in retrospect of my bumpy,
brutal and very beautiful
365 days around the sun and what I signed up
– for being me, the I am – well, Sarah-Jane
and it always gets me to feeling into the big WHY’s
Why am I here,at this exact moment in space – inhabiting this very soft, sensitive physical body I call ME?
Last year on my birth day it tool falling off a horse, who so patently held space for me to wake up, slow
down and listen
to my soft horse bodied vessel and appreciate it rather than abuse it to the point of exhaustion….
Sometimes the cost of spiritual, sacred activism will kick you to the hard dusty ground –
harder than hard when you don’t take care of yourself first just to get you back into your body.
It’s a time of the year that also makes me quite emotional and mushy in my deep down enquiry of inviting in the new
and what it takes to unravel and unbecome everything I think I know about myself.
So, (big breath) how do we let go of all the good enough things we carry?
because it takes guts and a big dose of brave to stop and take care of yourself as a divine responsibility
so the Universe can truly have your back
…and by that I mean…
If you believe that you are God, God within, a child of the universe, or a product of Love,
and/or a global citizen, then it’s common sense that you care well for yourself.
In fact, you’re honour bound to love yourself.
I also know that if your body was a dog, it would have run away long ago
‘cos you treat it ( like me ) so badly at the moments when you should lean in,
not self abandon to save you’re;f from the wretched part of yourself
and in the process, love that inner saboteur more tenderly and compassionately than ever,
yes EVER before!
Here is what I know to be truer than true – more now than ever
…. all those attitudes and beliefs we picked up along our life path that squeeze the joy
and the grief because we had to after loss.
Countless of them.
At first, we carry them because we can and because they are not too heavy to carry.
Good things. Ok things. Not so bad things.
After a while we get used to carrying them.
We go about our life with all these good enough things.
Over time, they become us.
We are one with them. Undivided.
We confuse these things with ourselves.
And we never think to let them go, until one day we become so self aware,
that every time we tell ourselves the truth these “good enough” things show themselves.
The separation begins. They no longer feel a part of us.
We start to consider letting them go.
What am I talking about?
Letting go of routines that no longer serve us.
Letting go of perceptions of ourselves.
Letting go of things we still do but don’t really enjoy.
Letting go of jobs. Letting go of furniture even.
Bed sheets. Empty boxes. Parts of our old identity.
Lately, I have decided to let go of something that was very precious
to me in the past but no longer is.
I started realizing that it gives me stress and not joy as it used to.
It takes away from my freedom.
The kind of freedom I identify with now.
The things we need to let go of the most are not horrible and ugly.
They are things that used to be light but have gotten heavier with time.
Look at the good things in your life, the good things that used to be great.
The good things that used to make your heart full of joy, but now they are just ok.
These things are the invisible heavy loads we carry without knowing.
Getting to greatness, living in your True nature requires the unloading
and unravelling of all the old stories you carrying like a cross of the “good enough” ones.
The ones that have served us for a long time.
They are the hardest things to let go.
They are hard to let go, because they keep us safe (illusion) and our comfort zone (not comfortable at all.)
I don’t know about you but I am in the process of letting go of a lot of “ok” things.
I feel tears of joy just writing this to you.
I don’t want to carry these things anymore.
I am letting them all go.
making space for optimism, adventures to brave new territories
and trust I am going to be OKAY
and then some more…
And allowing for greatness for my spirit,
for my personality and for my body to arrive.
I hope you are too.
With life and lightness,
and loving you
PS. Please send someone who needs this love note to this page so they can sign up to
living fully expressed in true belonging to ourselves
– together because we are wired for connection and honestly, we cannot “do it” alone.
Join me and explore the joy of inspiration through communication and trusted co-operation.
By using the Trust Process we get in touch with our hearts compassionately
and patiently by being present with what is moment by moment.
This life transformational process builds a core bond of trust and confidence
that deepens inter relationships in animals and people.
This is the ancient wisdom of shamans, which can then develop and extend to all areas of life.
When our relationship shifts from trauma based fear or shut down to trust and truth telling,
over-reactions are replaced with instinctual learning and deep cellular healing.
When the human mind changes to accommodate the opinions of animals a state of
gratitude and co-operation can be shared.
WHY would you want to say yes to this?
Well because this is whatI hear every day when I get to work with incredible, strong,
highly sensitive worm like you who are weeping for the state of the Earth
and the horrendous things that are happening to women and innocent children around the world.
I will be speaking to just how the Trust process will take you to a space of calm and peace
and your animal companions, with Judy Anderson tomorrow evening.
I am also going to be offering a never before invitation to make learning
the Trust process or should I say remembering how to TRUST
a complete and utter no brainer.
Are You ready to step into Greater Love….
