Breathing in, breathing out, quietening the clamour in my mind and envisioning the beautiful space beyond the portal. This is my way into the Space that holds me, as I hold space for those I love. It enables me to vibrate at a higher frequency, to be fully here in this present moment. I cannot truly hold space for others, unless I am first holding space for myself. It feels effortless, infinitely loving, soft and light.
Spending time in this Space heightens my awareness, takes me to conscious choices, opens my heart and I then notice reflections of what I need to learn in the mirrors of the ones I’m holding space for. This helps me to help them, as well as myself.
Acceptance and Allowing
When I accept what is, trust that it is the reason I am experiencing this situation now, I can move into allowing. When I allow myself to actively participate in every moment, learning and growing through trust, I find myself in flow and alignment.
Letting go of my resistance to wanting to be in control, has been the most difficult obstacle I have faced. It comes in so many guises that I can justify as love, caring, wanting to carry the load and just plain control. The difficult part is un-telling the stories. This is a step by step process, and the freedom when you have a breakthrough is heady and sometimes hilarious. I fought so hard to keep all those balls I was juggling up in the air! When I let go of some of them (still playing with the others), I realised that I was never in control. Phew, who knew?
I sit here in deep gratitude to those of you who helped me to shift, soften, stand up, show up, take action and mostly for the love I have received.
Let me extend an invitation to you readers. Be your best self, listen, learn, be kind, love with abandon, laugh and follow your bliss.
