I took a trip to the west coast of Florida recently, and every time I go there it is disconcerting to me spatially. I grew up on the east coast of New Jersey and Florida, and the Atlantic Ocean is always to the east; walk north and it is to your right – walk south and it is to your left.
On the west coast of Florida everything is backwards! Being spatially oriented is important to me. I wonder if it is part of my “control freak” tendencies, and/or a part of my quest for perfectionism, and subsequent disappointment when I get it wrong.
I’ve been doing a lot of work integrating mind, body, and soul. What appears to happen when you do this deep work is that you first pull out everything you know, and it floats all around you in a circle and you feel very disoriented…disorganized.
Slowly, you reach up and start to pull down the things you want to stay, as you let all the rest drift away into the cosmos. As you work to put all that stuff back in an organized manner, you walk around in this new configuration of yourself, and you try to become acquainted with the new normal.
There is no doubt that things are different. In the beginning it’s hard to say that it’s different – better, or just different – different. But deep down you have to believe that it’s better.
Change is hard; the kind that comes without warning, and the kind you consciously try to make. We are creatures of habit and tend to feel anxiety where change is concerned – planned or otherwise. Deep down we know when it’s necessary and if we are brave enough to try, I know we will receive all the benefits and blessings from our hard work.
I like to think of myself as a work in progress – just like a piece of art that almost creates itself if you listen to it. During times of great change, it can be alluring to put it all under a microscope and analyze it to death. As I sit and try to figure out everything all at once, I can’t help but think that maybe it’s enough to walk around in your new alignment like you would walk around in a new pair of shoes – and know that the alignment is right…right now!
Ok…I just got an intuitive message that I should do a card pull from my IF THEN AMEN INSPIRATIONAL CARD DECK and include it here at the end of this post. Hahaha…you just have to love The Universe!!!!!
