“This time is utterly about surrendering to the unknown and letting go of what we essentially have no control over.”
~Jessica of New Paradigm Astrology
Have you ever wondered about what happens when you take the leap? When the prayers, the endless “self-help addict” musings get tired, and when you just do it, feel the fear and do it anyway? (It’s difficult to get away from these darn book titles!) Well, I can certainly say that it’s not all a garden of roses, meaning, the moment of surrender does not give instant ripe fruit!
Since I have left my familiar shore, and ventured out not just on a fancy feast for the eyes in Italy, but to start the next chapters and era of my both professional and artistic life, I have discovered that I have only just really begun the adventure and that my dreams will take some time to manifest. Believe me, I did not expect that the moment I turned in my paperwork, all of my larger dreams would be delivered on a silver platter, rewarding me for my courage to step out of my fear. However, I do want things to move more quickly than they are, and yet there is necessary process that one must undertake.
And, so, my journey since returning back from the Italian sojourn, fresh and brimming with inspiration, creativity, and ideas, has been almost “sidetracked” by all sorts of inner work, processes of inner refinement about what it is I really do want, and a deepening of the truth of who I am that has needed to be cultivated by writing, meditating, and some honest self-reflection. The daily practice of gratitude and the power of thank you, for every detail that I can feel deep appreciation for has been my boat on the sea of life. I cannot express in words how profound this practice can be when done with sincerity and feeling.
The journey towards wholeness and readiness has taken over for now…. I am emerging though, from yet another thicker cocoon, and know that I will become the beautiful butterfly that I am born to be. And, I am truly grateful.
As I am writing this, August 16, my Happy Hints was focused on the theme of Patience. And, to quote:
“Patience leads to… wisdom. There is can be no appreciation of wisdom’s bounty if you are not prepared to wait for her fruits to ripen. Everything takes time. There is a process to change and growth that must be respected. Once we honor that process all that we seek comes to or door. So don’t sit impatiently waiting for positive outcomes, just do the right thing according to your capacity and even the unimagined will come and find you.”
