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!

  1. I’m glad you’re able to keep your trust amidst change and personal growth Lorrie. I’m grateful to have stepped away from personal growth work. For me it was too much work with no sense of real change. Hugs and blessings.

    1. Hi Brad 🙂 I get it! It can be a challenge to get to the point where it feels like it is all worth it. I guess that is what I am alluding to in this post…that we come down so hard on ourselves looking for the big changes…and maybe…just maybe we can sit in, or with, the alignment that is here RIGHT NOW…without reaching out for the BIG ONE. Just food for thought…
      I know that being in the energy of allowing, rather than pushing out can make all the difference…it seems that is where you have landed!!
      All my best to you, Brad. Hope that you are adjusting <3

    1. Hi Liz! Aye…those are the big ones that always seem to pop up…Yes?
      I’m happy if you could take some inspiration from this post. I know we are similar in our approach to some things…and for today…maybe just being where we are…IS ENOUGH!
      Hope that life is treating you well…and you are busy creating things that speak to your heart <3

  2. Stay open and aware … just like this 🥰 When we embrace the challenges we create new insights that keep us going. Allow the truth and it will come.

    1. Yes, Val 🙂 It’s amazing how there is no comparison in allowing vs. striving! Ah…to let the natural flow – like floating down a lazy river!!!
      Hope all is well with you! <3

    1. Thanks, Ka 🙂 I would suspect that is true…as we are all more alike than not…and all connected in this great big Universe! Thanks for your kind words…lots of love right back to you <3

  3. Transitions are always a little disorienting~ I’m glad you are finding your way through with trust and not falling into analysis paralysis :). Big changes are on my horizon too and I bounce back and forth between ‘big picture’ which feels good and flowy, and then sinking into trying to control it all which feels bad and stressful. It’ll all work out~ it always does, one way or another! 💜✨

    1. Wow, Kristen…I can feel the flow as you stated those words! (Unfortunately, I also know what the control part does to creativity…UGH!)
      I am sending beautiful, clear, light purple energy to you with a wish that all things work out as you stay in the flow.
      All good things <3

  4. Beautiful post, Lorrie! It sounds like when you’re disoriented, all you need to do is trust your intuition and find balance. It’s a great metaphor and I’m proud of you.
    I also love how perfect your “amen cards” were!

    1. Aww, Judy, Thank You!! YES…trust our intuition!! and find balance!! I have been trying to become even more connected to my intuition…to really listen for the messages and then to follow what I hear. It’s funny to me how many times we DON’T listen to that voice when deep down we absolutely KNOW that if we do everything works out for the better!!
      I hope you feel much better!! I’m sorry I missed you last night but hope your session was wonderful and that your beautiful voice is back in its fullest!!
      Much love and light for a beautiful new week <3

      1. Thank you, Lorrie! My voice is still “recovering,” but I’m thankful my audience understands. Yes, we need to listen to our inner voice and not dismiss it!! I agree 100%!!
        Sending you much love and light, too!

  5. Beautifully written Lorrie, open, allowing and definitely a work in progress. We always dare to try, measure it, and try again as we all want that joy and happiness. Its in there, we know it is…and as we grow stronger within it, we’ll keep on that path. Yours is lit well my friend. Great post 😀❤️🙏

    1. “A well-lit path!” I love it, Mark…and it sounds like a possible new post for me 😉
      Thank you so much for your words which always touch my heart. Yes…JOY AND HAPPINESS!! Being able to live in those energies has been so life-changing for me. It is hard to understand something that you have not experienced, and yet I have been on this journey – uncovering layer upon layer until I see the truth of everything that lies in the center. It’s always been there…just covered with the muck of human frailties bouncing off one another. The journey has been interesting…beautiful…and painful at times. But I wouldn’t change a thing. And I can only hope that the light continues to brighten – and the path continues to present itself! And I know that it will, because I know that it will!!!
      Sending lots of good mojo your way!! <3

    1. For most of my life I wanted change…and that was because the environment was toxic and scary. But to be on this path and to work diligently to toss what is not needed and hold very dear the things that make my heart sing…well…yes! I like this change.
      Hope all is well with you, Ann. Have a beautiful week!

  6. Hi Lorrie, what a beautiful poem, post and musings, so honest and open. Life’s full of change, trust and flow. For me it feels like a constant stream of adjusting of the sails and I’m sure it’s similar for you as you navigate changes along the journey. I send you lots of love and warmest wishes my friend. 💜🙏🏻

    1. Hi Miriam 🙂 I love your message…and I immediately saw you on that sailboat, traversing the waters of life – in control and loving the journey!! Yes, small adjustments depending on the circumstances of life as we walk on our individual journey.
      All good things and lots of love back to you <3

  7. Great opening story ~ you’d love the West Coast 🙂 Your poem is a great way to lead us into this post and to see how being open to change and trusting the flow. I hope you are having a great autumn ~ take care!
