Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D.The process and concepts set forth in this book, Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph. D., can be life-changing.

I’m really excited about practicing the simple suggestions over time and experiencing their benefits.

Contrary to some reviews, I didn’t find it technical at all, much less overly-technical. It’s interesting and easy to read, with a nice balance of breadth and depth.

I also consider Dr. Hawkins a valid and impressive authority on this topic; not always easy to find or distinguish in these days of wildly proliferating “experts”.

He begins the book by explaining the mechanism of letting go. Since it involves emotions, he then follows by going into depth with each of the emotions he has already delineated in his previous books (most notably the fascinating Power vs. Force).

I don’t think he’d have had to include them in this book, but for those who don’t already have his other(s), or even just for reference, it’s helpful to have it all in one place. Plus, here his discussions of the emotions are more focused on the letting go process.

Along with his descriptions of the emotions and how their “hierarchy” comes into play, he gives great examples which help clarify and elucidate the letting go mechanism.

And if you’re like me, you’ll find that reading about the more difficult emotions will trigger in you some recollections and/or sensitivity to your own experiences with it, making it clear that it’s still lurking around.

And by this point, you know what to do next.

In fact, while reading one of the first few chapters, I allowed myself to go with what I was feeling at the time (i.e. using his letting go process), and although it didn’t even seem like a huge “cleansing”, I was astonished to find that the next day I felt remarkably better; lighter, happier, more prone to laughing, etc. I wasn’t even looking for a change, it just was impossible to not notice! It had to have been the process, proving to me that if it could have that effect even when done half-a**ed, imagine what might be in store if I actually do it more thoroughly and deliberately.

Wow.

So, as I said, I’m quite excited to have this book.

My only complaint is that he doesn’t go into the mechanism of letting go in as clear a way as I expected and would have liked. Since this is something you want to get in the habit of practicing regularly, it would be nice to have one part of the book to refer to easily.

Within his chapter “The Mechanism of Letting Go”, there are really only 3 pages that tell you how to do it. And even then, it’s really only a few paragraphs of that. And it’s not written as steps of a process, but rather just a few instructions (two, actually) without a lot of detail.

But maybe that’s enough. Sometimes the most simple things hold more truth, depth, and power than those that are complex. (And who would really do it consistently if it was too involved, anyway? Not me!)

But I find that as you read the rest of the book, some of the details become more clear, although I found some of the details a little contradictory to his simple description of the process. I can only conclude that perhaps you have to learn the subtleties on your own as you practice, i.e. how it works best for you.

So although it’s not written with the process described thoroughly and concisely in one place, it seems that the book ultimately gives you what you need.

Again, I feel lucky that this book crossed my path, and feel it’s potentially very powerful.

Definitely recommended.

Note: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes and this review reflects my honest evaluation.

When you live a multidimensional life, you’re always aware that everything’s connected.

Or more accurately, you appreciate that some things are just more dense representations of patterns that exist at a subtle level.

For the past few weeks I’ve noticed striking connections between my emotions and my home.

And seeing connections is helpful because it can provide some guidance as to where to go from where we are.

While I was on a recent trip, my sweet husband decided to surprise me by doing some planned painting. He was going to have it done when I got home as a Valentine’s Day gift to me.

But things went awry. The paint was smeary and maybe bad. It’s a deep color and needed more coats than he thought. Doing the trim was more painstaking than he expected. He found it all discouraging because he so wanted to surprise me, but I assured him it was okay. I could help paint when I got back, in fact would enjoy that.

Discombobulated House

When I got home, everything was in disarray. The large buffet that was against the partially painted wall was in the middle of the living room. A bean bag chair we also keep along that wall was in the middle of my office, along with a large ottoman that we had put there when we moved a new recliner into the living room to try it out.

Since then, rather than get better, things have gotten worse. We’ve had issues with the bed we bought about 10 months ago so we have various beds in various positions now in the bedroom.

Long story short, our house is kind of a mess. It feels like when you’ve just moved. You’re not all the way in, and not all the way out.

Discombobulated Emotions

Interestingly, my emotions have been in a similar state. They’re all over the place, and not neat and tidy like I’d like them. Just like with the heavy furniture, I’m having to live with and adjust to their heaviness and insistence that they make themselves known.

And like the furniture, they’re not tiny little issues, they’re big ones.

But sometimes making changes and improvements, especially big ones, requires living with upheaval for awhile, both inside and “outside”.

It’s helpful and good if you can allow the resulting disarray to be okay; to recognize that it’s a necessary part of the process.

Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic — this is the spiritual path. Getting the knack of catching ourselves, of gently and compassionately catching ourselves, is the path of the warrior.

~ Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart

On a side-note, I find it interesting that in jyotish, the same house of the horoscope (the 4th) represents both our emotions and our home. They’re our private places. It’s also notable that I’ve got Mars transiting my 4th house right now, and go figure, the wall we are painting is a deep wine red, one of Mars’ colors. Mars is also the spiritual warrior.

Discombobulated Body

It’s no surprise that a few days after arriving home, I started to get a cold. According to Louise Hay in her book You Can Heal Your Life, colds can relate to “Too much going on at once. Mental confusion, disorder”.

I did an Emergence session with that, and got the clear message that as soon as I clear up my mental and emotional turmoil, the house would follow.

Of course, influence moves both directions, but my experience is that creation moves primarily from the more subtle to the more dense, i.e. emotional -> physical.

The state of my home is just a reflection and manifestation of the more subtle energies.

So my attention has been primarily on my emotional state … and even more subtle, on my spiritual state as well.

And if I get right down to it, I have to acknowledge that even these are simply indications of an even deeper pattern at the level of consciousness.

Surrender to Discombobulation

I could push through, pretend I know the answers to some of the emotional dilemmas that have been presenting themselves to me. But that’s not the answer.

Every part of me knows that for now, I need to sit with this. Let it all be a mess.

To just be in the not knowing for now.

Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all.

Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we like to dream about. The off-center, in-between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don’t get caught and we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit.

~ Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart

It’s not helpful to just push everything back where it supposedly “belongs”.

The answer is to really connect with my being and from there, examine the root of it all.

And just like with the furniture, I’m asking the fundamental questions:

  • What do I really need?
  • What do I really want?
  • What is working, and what’s not? Just because something used to be good doesn’t mean it still is.
  • Do I really like that? Or have I been settling?
  • What feels right?
  • What matches with my envisioned future, and the direction I see myself moving?
  • What works with my family as well as for me?

At the same time, I’m also practicing Emergence with some of my related patterns of consciousness that aren’t consciously accessible.

Big Disarray for Big Improvement

Even though inconvenient, I’m glad furniture is too big to “sweep under the rug”. That’s the easy way for lots of us sometimes. Oh, I’ll deal with that later. A later that never comes.

Sometimes things need an overhaul. Kind of like a spring cleaning, but even bigger. It’s not always necessary for it to all happen at once, but when it presents itself that way, it behooves us to go with it.

And again, even though inconvenient, I’m appreciating that I do have the time and space to give this examination the attention and depth that it deserves.

Well, truth be told, I’m making the time, because just like with heavy furniture, I feel the import and substantiveness of it.

I’m being patient with it and myself.

I’m living in surrender to what is, these days.

I’m learning to welcome uncertainty.

And even though tumultuous at times, I’m actually enjoying the process.

I know it’s good. And I know it will be worth it.

So often I find some time to visit a few of my favorite blogs, and I come away astounded at how exactly their topics match with what I’m experiencing or what I needed to hear.

Integration

This time, the theme was our own integration with ourselves, within and without.

Integration has been my focus lately and as a critical part of multidimensional living, it’s essential to living a truly empowered life.

Often I want to share the posts and my resultant thoughts with you, but by the time I find the time to do it, they’re old and stale. (That means they’re a few days old, LOL! Things move too fast for me here in the blogosphere!)

But this time, I’m going to share them anyway.

It’s a perfect example of integration, after all.

Here I’m integrating my personal activity of visiting some of my favorite blogs, of being inspired, of sharing my thoughts (along with some awesome blogs), and ultimately with writing about the topic of my blog, i.e. taking advantage of and integrating all our dimensions to be our whole, awesome selves!

These are bloggers whom I love to read.

Do yourself a favor and check out these posts (and the blogs, too, while you’re at it).

Walk With Me …

Just before visiting these blogs this past Sunday, I had just done some Matrix Energetics (ME) during a holographic Emergence Session on myself. I sometimes meander into a somewhat stuck space lately, and my intention with the session was to get a little movement and clarity going.

I think that’s why I was prompted to visit these blogs. These posts definitely gave me a nudge and I found myself all inspired-like. :-)

Stop #1: A Clear Sign

I went to Julie’s always thought-provoking blog A Clear Sign and came upon her recent post The End of an Era.

I thought it was funny and perfect that she references super-heroes and Richard Bartlett, the founder of ME, often plays around with super-heroes.

I was clearly right where I was supposed to be!

And wow wow WOW.

Her post is very much about surrender, and she talks about crying “Uncle”. Just the other day I uttered that same word, literally, for similar reasons! I’ve been writing about and living in surrender for almost a month now.

She also uses the phrase that we are “falling into ourselves”. I love that. What a great way to put it. It’s like we can no longer live NOT as wholly integrated beings.

Anything not “of us” must fall away.

Stop #2: Powered by Intuition

Next I popped over to my friend (oh, I’m so honored to be able to say that) Angela’s always substantial blog Powered by Intuition.

Again, the topic of her recent post was related to living in integrity with ourselves, and sometimes switching careers mid-stream if that’s what it takes to do that. (It’s also about using our intuition to know whether that’s what it takes.)

I feel I’ve always been guided by my intuition, even when working predominantly with my analytical abilities. I walked away from a 15+ yr. long career as an engineer (software development) and although I loved it, it was time for a change.

Now, I’m examining again what it is I’m doing. Which direction to go. More of a fine-tuning than a major change of direction, but it’s still a very relevant and interesting article!

Stop #3: Intuitive Journal

Then I found myself at Laura’s Intuitive Journal, reading a great article about our purpose. Such a popular and important topic! I found her perspecive on it quite refreshing and a great reminder to me.

I suppose my Matrix Energetics (ME) session was still on my mind because her post reminded me that Richard (Bartlett, founder of ME) often would say that the less we do, the more powerful our sessions are.

That we are doors, not do-ers. I often remind myself of that especially before a ME session.

Stop #4: Danielle La Porte

And all of this reminded me, then, of a recent post by someone whose self-expression I love so much she almost makes me giddy.

It’s by Danielle La Porte and is a post about her recent sitename change. Again, very much about an integrated life.

In it, she quotes an email by Amy Oscar. I’m so glad she shared the content with us. It’s great and I bet you’d love it too.

The whole post reminded me of the powerful quote by Marianne Williamson in her book A Return to Love which I’ll post here for you:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond all measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Stop #5: Amy Oscar

And that took me to Amy’s site; one I’ve visited often.

I didn’t have time to get into her articles this time, but I love her new-ish header! She/it says:

You are already intuitive, already connected to the source of light and love that animates all things. You don’t need more training, more study, more stuff. No more penance. Nothing to fix. No points to earn.You are here. You have always been here. Here. Now. This. Let it in.

Back Home Again

So, to come full circle on the topic of integration, Amy’s header is a perfect reminder that we are all that we want to be already.

All we have to do is acknowledge that. Honor it. BE it.

The tricky part (in my experience) is letting what is NOT us fall away.

Here’s to you — your whole, integrated self. :-)

Namasté.

“Get a clue!”, my guidance yelled at me the other day.

At first I thought it had to be my own, chiding voice that pipes in from time to time, but no. The wisdom of the guidance was unmistakable.

Besides that, the signs were obvious. They’d been showing up one after another for weeks, some of them for months.

Get a clue is right.

Apparently, I’d been barreling down a road that I shouldn’t have even been on. And some part of me just didn’t want to admit it.

But I can happily report that I listened. I’m beginning to stroll merrily along a path that is much more fitting with who I am.

Have you ever done that? Found yourself heading the wrong way but not wanting to acknowledge it? Forcing your guidance to have to pull out all the stops?

I want to share a little about the signs I saw along with a few morsels of wisdom from my guide that helped me redirect myself.

The Direction

If you’ve been following the past few months, you know that I’ve adjusted my blog topic and am changing my blogging style.

The soul searching that led to that was prompted in part by a problem I started having with my shoulder. (I could write  a whole series of posts on the details of how that related to my blog. For now, just trust me. It did.)

So this was all well and good, and I had plans for quite a few posts over this next month along with some more Jyotish Tutorial articles. I was looking forward to visiting some blogs I like to read regularly. I was also participating in the Blog with Videos Bootcamp, and getting ready for a trip I’ll be taking this week.

But as I jumped in and began implementing my plans, everything started going awry.

The Signs

Because my left shoulder was so problematic when I used my netbook, I’d started sitting at my desk to work on my desktop computer.

Well, now my other shoulder started acting up from that.

Worse yet, the chair at my desk feels good but it does a number on my back if I sit there too long. Wouldn’t you know, it got my back into such a state that I tweaked it last week and now it’s seriously injured.

Even as this was going on, I got a request by someone that I couldn’t refuse. It involved yet more work at the computer. But I committed anyway, thinking I could use my netbook, just in a different position.

I turned on my netbook and heard a horrible screeching and scraping noise that should never ever come out of a computer. Eeek! I turned it off immediately. (I did some Matrix Energetics on it. I tentatively turned it back on and it’s been fine ever since … but still!)

So, there were a number of issues preventing me from being on the computer more than just an hour or two per day.

On top of that, I somehow got myself into a disfunctional emotional state on a day when I had a lot of computer work to do, mainly writing my planned posts. I just could not bring myself to write.

I was so stressed. I had to write and be at the computer, but I couldn’t.

I just couldn’t.

What to do?

Channeled Guidance

In a state of desperation I decided to try channeling about it.

I got into a channeling state and blubbered to whatever guide would listen. In came a wonderful guide I have who is a master alchemist, and very loving besides.

He sort of lectured me (quite uncommon), and then did a healing session (on the order of a chakra cleanse) that left me trembling for about 20 min. afterward.

But it was just what I needed. I was calm and focused and at peace; and have been fine (and nicely functional) ever since.

Here are a few things he said:

You’ve got to break out of the rules. I’m going to tell you that you’ve got to watch for the “should”s. [Note: I'll get more into this with another post but I noticed a month or so back that my shoulder problems are partly about "shoulds". Should-er. Get it?!]

But part of the joy that you are moving toward with this vacation can only be found if you can not only move into it but unfold it and create it with the consciousness of joy.

And you cannot do that while you are vibrating with the consciousness of stress.

Do what is fun for you this week, period.

You are disfunctional because you have asked to open more to your subtle self. In order to do that you have got to quit living in your old patterns.

Part of your energy system is trying to communicate that to you with ideas such as this but also in other ways. Like not allowing you to do it anymore.

Do you see all the signs?

Get a clue!

Be responsible to your spirit, your fire. This is not what you are supposed to be doing. … You aren’t going to find your way if you’re spending your time stressing out — like you did last year — about your blog.

Surrender

It might sound obvious now but at the time, since I was approaching my blog differently, I didn’t see that in many ways I was still approaching blogging the same.

I didn’t dread it like I used to before my blog changes, but I still had too many expectations and just as much stress around it.

I decided to completely surrender to the circumstances.

Not only that, but to consider what they might be telling me. (For I don’t think circumstances are really “outside” of me. They’re me, having a conversation with myself.) It seemed the least I could do since they had to yell it at me just like my channeling guide had to.

For someone as tenacious as me, surrender was difficult. But it was a relief at the same time.

So I did what I had already committed to (because that’s what I do). I submitted a new Jyotish Tutorial article and met my commitments to the person I didn’t dare say no to.

I still felt I ought to post, even wanted to post, but saw that feeling a need to do it now while so many circumstances were against it was nothing more than a should.

I knew it was time to put my attention on other priorities such as healing my back so I can travel, and getting ready for my trip.

So I did that. I did what I enjoyed; and enjoyed what I did.

And I didn’t stress about anything.

The New Path

Over the past half week, I feel like a new person.

And even though I don’t know exactly where this renewed way of operating will take me, I’m somehow trusting that it will be good. And of course, if it’s not, I can always change course when the time is right. I can respond in the moment.

I did have one challenge yesterday. The husband of a good friend of mine who lives about an hour away is dying as we speak. He’s also a friend and I’m wanting to do whatever I can for them. But with my back condition, I haven’t been able to.

I’d accepted that but yesterday I got word that he was somewhat conscious and coherent.

I wanted so badly to drive down there and visit.

But even as I began to consider it, my back went into intense spasms! Even then, it took me a little while to see the connection and realize that again, my guidance was having to yell at me!

“Knock it off!”, it was saying.

Get a clue!

Today, I remain in surrender. I’m sitting in a comfortable position writing this post. And then I’ll go get my packing done for my trip. I’m fortunate to know how to do distance sessions with my dear friends who are in crisis — perhaps an even better help than being there in person.

And whatever doesn’t work out, just doesn’t work out; and what does, does.

I’m okay with it. It’s not up to me to control everything.

This morning I said a prayer I learned when I was in recovery:

God, I offer myself to Thee, to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt.

Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I might better do Thy will.

I’m not pretending that I know best.

I’m just doing what I can to hear Divine guidance, and then to follow it without kicking and screaming for a change, so that it doesn’t have to scream at me!

And all the while, I get to live in curious anticipation of how it’s going to unfold.

What a much more enjoyable way to live!

P.S. As you might have guessed, I didn’t write the posts I intended to schedule for you during my trip. So! I may not be back here until I physically return in a few weeks. (Anyway, it seems this is long enough to last you til then. Oops!) Of course I’ll be checking in for comments, though, so I’d still love to hear from you!

How about you? Does your guidance ever have to scream at you? How do you understand “surrender”? Where are you with this right now?

Do you ever want to share information about your talents or gifts but balk because it feels like you’re bragging? Or do you sometimes have trouble admitting even to yourself how amazing you are because you’ve been taught that’s egotistical?

Here’s a simple idea that can change your perspective.

Once you see differently, you can share in a way that makes you feel grateful instead of like you’re doing something wrong. It’s good for you and good for those who wouldn’t have heard about what you have to offer if you were hiding it under a bushel because of some mistaken sense of modesty.

We ask ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. …
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

Marianne Williamson in A Return to Love

I’ve been clean and sober for 28 years today. Yay!

And it’s so funny that one of the lessons I was required to learn to get cleaned up has come back to my attention this week.

It’s exactly about being able to recognize — and yes, even talk about — your own light, yet not feel like you’re bragging. To let yourself shine with no reservation.

First You Surrender

An essential element of my getting clean was to completely surrender to the reality of the situation and even more importantly, to something greater than myself. I had to quit trying to do it all myself. Because I couldn’t. I was totally defeated.

As I watched my surrendered self rack up the clean and sober hours, then the days, then the weeks, I was nothing short of amazed, and puzzled at the same time. How could this be? The moment I quit trying, it happened. It was as if by magic, but I like the word “miracle” better in this situation because honestly, that’s what it felt like and still does.

Then Humility Appears

I began to notice that I could celebrate my sobriety and other achievements more openly than I’d been able to before. There was a different quality to it. It was the quality of humility.

Acknowledge the Gifts

I saw that my sobriety was a gift more than something I’d done. It had been given to me. It’s the same with any of my abilities or talents.

Sure, I’ve nurtured and encouraged many of them, but really, where did they come from in the first place?

They’ve been given to me, and if anything, they’re coming through me. Same with any virtues I might have.

And Let Yourself Shine

When I remember that, I don’t have a problem freely sharing information about what I can do or what I have to offer people. Especially if I figure it’s coming through me for them. That would be selfish, like hoarding it. But even if it’s coming through me for who-knows-what-reason, it’s not especially up to me to decide, or even to judge that.

This all came up recently when I was invited by Eliza Fayle of Silver and Grace to contribute to an ebook about how I make a difference. My first thoughts were related to an earlier pattern of thinking: that I don’t really make much of a difference (what I now think of as false humility — maybe it’s more a lack of gratitude), and that even if I did, I certainly couldn’t “toot my own horn”.

But as I began to jot down a few things, I also began to get really grateful. I started appreciating the things I do do that make a difference — a real difference — in others’ lives. And in the end, the reason I could submit it to her and feel good about it is because of the lessons I learned those 28 years ago about surrender, humility, gifts, and light.

Oh, and miracles. Can’t forget the miracles. :-D

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Want to hear from me and a few other ladies about how we make a difference? You can do that and support Eliza in making a difference at the same time by downloading her new ebook here — for FREE! (Thank you, Eliza!)

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

And then think about how YOU make a difference, and share it in the comments. What gifts are you putting your personal touches on and then sharing so beautifully?

Yikes, I thought, I’ve got way too much to get done! How can this be happening now?

Ever been there?

Last week, I found myself in a lot of pain. Physical pain. The whole right side of my mouth was tweaking on me, big time.

I had a lot to do but it was hard to focus, and I responded to the reality of what was happening by deciding not to struggle.

Instead of fighting the situation and pushing myself to get it all done, I just let go of it.

I surrendered.

I went down to the river deck where I always feel connected.

[Pull up a seat and join us. And click play.]

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

My dog, Ollie, came with me and we just hung out. He’s my bud. We smiled at each other now and then and it warmed my heart.

I took my overdue library book with me and zipped through the end of it.

And isn’t it funny that in the pages I covered that day, I discovered a bit more about exactly this, about being one with our issues and our difficulties. (There was a section about physician and healer Leonard Laskow and his book Healing With Love. You can bet I’m going to read that one.)

Connecting with our challenges rather than pushing against them helps us find our wholeness.

It confirmed to me that I was on the right track. As I often say to myself: Embrace it as though you had chosen it. Not always easy but always rewarding.

Not that I needed confirmation, but that wa’s nice, and a fun synchronicity. I know with every cell of my body the importance of being centered. And going with the flow is a big part of that for me.

And this is where I find myself again today.

I’ve been to the dentist and now I’m on pain meds but this has all set me back and I’m still finding it hard to concentrate. I get to go to an endodontist this week. (What a name END-o-dontist. Really? Could a root canal specialist sound any more scary, do ya think?)

I’ve got so much to do. I’m still so far behind, and even more-so now. But seriously. These are my old patterns nagging at me.

I’ve got to stay in my center here.

So maybe I’m behind but it’s more important to me to trust the unfolding; to have a balanced and holistic response to whatever appears in my life. I’m no longer willing to automatically cater to my stressed out ego-self that tries to be in charge all the time.

Some people would push through, I know. I used to be one of them, and still am sometimes when that’s what makes sense.

But now I’m usually inclined to honor what’s happening. To embrace the present moment. Not just as a moment but for what it’s presenting to me. (Hmm, I never noticed: Present-ing.)

And I ask myself: So, how do I dance with this?

I look at the big picture, the whole picture, and then make as conscious a choice as I can about what embracing it means … and what to do next.

In this situation, if I really look at it, it’s a gift. It’s all a gift. It’s a break. And it’s a good reason not to wig out about the things I’ve been wigging out about. (Heck, maybe I even created all of this dental drama so I could have a break. But I digress.)

And so, here I am enjoying writing a post to you that I don’t plan to overwork (for a change). You can take it, right? If it doesn’t flow logically? If it’s not super useful? (Hey, I’m on pain meds, I have an excuse.)

I’m getting to share me, my thoughts, my heart, and a bit more about what I want this blog to be about anyway: The importance and wonder of living from our center.

Because that’s where the magic lives.

And I think that’s a pretty nice thing to embrace, now that I think about it.

How do you dance with situations like this? Do you find value in going with the flow? I know you have something good to share …
