My throat is hurting right now. Cuz allergies.
But I also know that there is an underlying energetic reason for this. #bodyinsight.
I am showing up in a new way for myself, and in doing so, I need to express myself in a new way, yet again. I'm standing on my own more than ever. I feel myself stepping into my power in a new and deeper way.
Ya know the old saying, new level, new devil?
As a long-time healer, creator, and intuitive badass, sometimes I think I’ve reached my pinnacle, but there’s no end, only the NOW.
And this is actually one of my superpowers. Living in the NOW. Being present and showing up in my life is my favorite superpower. When I am living in the NOW, I am present with what is. I am BEing me. I am here. Not ruminating on what was or worrying about what will be. I am here.
We are all born with this superpower, but we are conditioned consciously and subconsciously to stray. My work has been about learning how to come back to this...
Yesterday my sister in-law said to me, you are the most patient woman I know.
And, I am a very patient human being. I remember when I moved to Arcata in ‘99. I was 25 years old, moved all the way from Iowa to Humboldt all by myself, and I told myself that I was going to work on patience. I had just read the 4 agreements and I chose this one concept to focus on. Lucky for me, Arcata was very slow, and so I got to practice a lot of patience. My parents were very impatient in my mind. And, I wanted to feel less frazzled, less irritated and less frustrated.
So I settled in and (tried) to get comfortable in the present moment. My places to practice were the grocery line, traffic and my job. I would breathe deep and hope for the best. It took me a LOOONG time to cultivate patience, but I was very dedicated.
Fast forward to 2005, I become a reiki practitioner and my real work began in becoming present.
The main practice of Reiki is presence. Remaining in the ever present...
