Today I am allowing whatever needs to come up to rise for me. And there is so much rising for me internally. She said, “she is happy…” those are the last words i heard before closing my eyes and falling asleep. Hearing that people are happy… this makes me feel full. I am reflecting on a day where a chain reaction of happiness was set in motion. Almost everyone I know was happy. every person I connected to had something wonderful to say and share. Every person was grateful. It was absolutely beautiful. The flow and spread of HAPPINESS!!! How can we hold onto these moments of pure joy and allow this to guide us on a more constant basis?
If I am being honest this morning I am honoring myself today… I am meditating on my ability to pull myself out of dark moments (with a little help from my friends–insert song). Yesterday instead of carrying my disappointment over being late for my writing session. I transformed those feeling into a beautiful gift for myself.. the bath I gave myself yesterday was filled with love… it was everything I needed. It was one hour of loving myself, of prayer of giving thanks for all the incredible revelations that have come up for me. How beautiful it was to give to myself what I knew would make me happy. This is what I am meditating on today… the things I must put into practice more regularly… I give thanks for my ability to transform my thoughts into something more loving, more kind, more gentle. Yesterday was beautiful. And to my visioning partner… thank you for yesterday… it was more than I could have imagined… I feel more centered… more in balance…
The discoveries I have made this week are around my willingness to dig, to probe, to ask the hard questions… this is what my writing requires… opportunities for me to see where I can go a little deeper… where I can go a little further… my thoughts just moved to the writers I work with and how on some occasions we stop ourselves mid thought… just when a particular scene is getting good or when some truths rise that are unexpected… we either welcome them or we push them out… there might be some resistance… but here is where we are called to stay with it. What I am discovering is that when I stay with an idea it gets clearer. In understanding why I resist I allow for the epiphanies to happen.
My intention for today is to be present … my pen is moving slowly this morning. Today I am honoring what my body wants. Today I am letting m mind rest. Today I am letting go!
As I wake up this morning … (Set timer for 5 minutes)
If I’m being honest… (Set timer for 5 minutes)
The discoveries I’ve made this week… (Set timer for 5 minutes)
My intention for today… (Set timer for 5 minutes)
I didn’t expect to… 10 minute prompt: let’s work thought fragmented thoughts. Re-read this weeks writing and look for areas where you could go deeper.. push a little harder. Find that one scene you want to work out… pick the one that really pulls you.
30 minutes writing in scene in order to flush it out. Ask the following questions to a specific character in the scene / and to your self as writer: What motivates you? What do you want to achieve? How will you get there?
And so it is. Namaste. Aché
With all my love,
