This week, “What do you wish to let go of?”
And a photo of a Nest?
Now how does that jive?
Can you be hatching eggs and letting go at the same time?
I need to make space for the new in order for growth and surprises
I wish to let go of…
- People who do not see me in a positive light.
- The last 20 lbs. of weight.
Letting go follows my desire to Change up the Energy and to Create Space!
I will try to check back in periodically to let you know how I’ve taken action on my list.
Every Wednesday (or most Wednesdays) I take part in Wishcasting Wednesday with Jamie Ridler Studios. This week our prompt is, “What do yo wish to make time for?” A perfect prompt for me as I attempt to Change up the Energy in my daily life.
Before I took a my current position I had more free time. As an on call person I could carved out Wednesday as Art Day! I rented space at the Peter White Public library and I’d paint or collage with wonderful sky lights above making even February in the Upper Peninsula seem energized.
On a recent trip to Duluth I had the rare treat of unstructured time to discover what pulls me. At the close of that day it was a mug of coffee at Jitters and a brand new journal purchased just moments earlier in a World Trade store for 4.00 dollars. It was conversation with complete strangers like Jeffey the Roller Derby Reffie a sharp pencil and he sound of an espresso machine that made my magic spark!
In the coming weeks I wish to make time for Art, Writing, Collages and I promise to put me back on the schedule. I want a day where I ignore everything else from 9 a.m – 5 p.m. Yoga class is allowed. No cell phone. Only that creative spark, pull, guidance on what is needed to keep me shining!
An impromptu trip to Duluth brought manifestation from my board created on September’s full moon. I created space! I found myself in Duluth Minnesota on a Friday, alone, with a backpack, twenty dollars and a camera. Mike had business that day. I got to follow my own impulses and was aided only by a tri-fold brochure map from the Holiday Inn.
I had never been to Duluth. We arrived the night before under the cloak of night. I even had a panic attack on the highways and bridges leading into Duluth. I thought this is too much. I cannot do this.
But the sun rose full of promise and the lakeshore called. Mike readied for a day at his company headquarters and I readied for a morning run on the Lake Walk. My only plan was to make it back to the hotel at noon to check out and finish loading our vehicle and then I’d have another several hours until I met back up with Mike at 5pm.
I had space! All the wonderful space for expression in a place that expected nothing from me. Around each corner was another new vision. Inspiration was everywhere. I could hear the voices in my head talking to me, guiding me, to each new path.
My dreamboard is not clippings from a magazine, nor a collection of words pasted to a poster board. My dreambaord this month is my own work. The photos captured on the trip. For the coming month they shall inspire me to rebuild a life that speaks of my heart and talents.
Jamie from Jamie Ridler Studios offers wonderful prompts to help me focus on dreams. This is Wishcasting Wednesday and my prompt is, What do you wish to do one day?
I believe I have to tackle this wish in a list!
- Support my needs in a sustainable conscious way thru my creative and healing interests
- Acquire a full DSLR camera and take photo assignments/gigs in adventurous locales
- Be an artist in residence at the Porcupine Mountains
- Hike on Isle Royale
- Run a 1/2 marathon trail race on Grand Island
- Study Ayurvedic healing at Kripalu
- Become a yoga instructor that helps people overcome illness and injury
My biggest dream and desire is to return to work within the Healing Arts. I believe in the power of intention. So most of all I wish to make new steps in that direction this day. I believe the funding will come forth o help me in m pursuits. May the means come to me in new and unexpected ways. And so I wish and so it shall be!
As the sun rose this morning I had a strong longing to take a walk. To head out of my home with no plan and no known destination. Instead, a panic set in about the day’s obligations and responsibilities. So, I turn my thinking and dreaming toward an upcoming four-day mini-vacation with a brand new destination on the Northern Shore of Lake Superior. The plan is to open to beauty and adventure.
I’m thinking on how to build the lifestyle I want.
