Happy Spring!!! I’m so excited I am gonna take the plastic off my windows! How is THAT for crazy,heh??!!
Spring is that time to throw off the winter vibes and get ready for some freshness! I don’t know about you but I have definitely been feeling the crazy a little. Spring sometimes comes in with a bang …new season, attitudes and space for who knows what!
I was speaking with a client the other day about her recent decision to leave her job. I was congratulatory as I find that new jobs are exciting, she looked at me keenly and said “What we worked on didn’t just help me in my( insert personal problem here) but it made me not take any shit from other people. A few weeks after we had our session I was around a doctor that I don’t care for and he kept talking to me and I realized I didn’t have to take any of his bullshit, so I handed in my notice that day. Whatever you did made me refuse the bullshit.”She laughed. I smiled back at her in the moment and told her “You shed the beacon.” She became animated and said “Yes! All that crap felt like it had fallen off of my body!”
We humans are so intense, so many layers of wonderfulness and terror. We are the sum of all our parts and unconsciously we then create a beacon for certain patterns such as abusive relationships, yo-yo dieting, financial distress, anxiety/depression and more. We are glorious beings of light and usually unaware of what or whom we are beckoning. So many times when our lives have produced negative results we seem to forget the only common denominator in all these events is ourselves. It’s tough to take credit for our own problems but it’s totally within our power to release the cause of our patterns.
When we actually let go of what holds us back, we shed so much more. We shed the event… the beliefs, consequences,people, behaviors, attitudes, locations, relationships and sometimes even clothing related to it. The snake sheds its skin so it may grow, so we shed pounds of fat off our bodies, lackluster careers, friendships, houses and lifetimes. Isn’t the shed the building in our yard that we originally built to hold stuff we need but in reality becomes the dumping point of all the crud we are to lazy to release. Shedding is letting go. Of what?
The shedding means we not only let go of the negative but also the positive. You may be wondering why I am encouraging this, by letting go of the positive, we shed the notion of the definition of the positive. By doing so we are then more open to whatever is coming, because of my dear Signalers, it’s coming…but do you have space for it? The idea that we only want positive things/people/actions in our lives creates resistance to the whole. The whole is truly desirable because we never know what we need to soften us, sometimes the only way to get what we want is to meet the biggest jerk on the planet and then four years later marry him or that crappy car you bought led you to meet your bff or when you spilled hot coffee on your pants at Starbucks and the person who hired you for the career of a lifetime handed you a napkin. We don’t know what package miracles will arrive in so be open to ….everything. It’s generally quite hilarious, I promise!
So get out there! Shed! Release! Laugh and love you gorgeous being!
Isn’t it time to be deliciously happy?
May you find the peace and love you so deserve!!
BTW…I had to laugh a bit here as I just helped my sister clean out her basement. I will tell you she is much happier now after recycling the hundreds of empty boxes….and sending charity countless pounds of old clothing. We laughed and laughed ….at every turn there was something ridiculous such as an espresso machine in a filing cabinet.
