The year is speeding past, here in the UK summer has been brief and inconsistent but this is life… brief and full of contrast, remembering that we chose to be here at this moment in time.
How we weather the storms will vary, for some a good walk will shake of depression but for others something more radical is needed, whatever it is will be to get out of ourselves, to put distance from us as the pain of that disconnection cannot be properly processed by sitting and facing it fully, humans are emotional beings… e-motion = energy in motion; tsunami or drizzle all deserve to be acknowledged and felt.
We are extraordinarily resilient, we British can come into our own more when things ‘need to be done’, that Dunkirk spirit out trumps upset as we soldier on, for some this is the answer but as the generations die out and the younger ones come in more connected another way will need to be found.
My dear mother is a ‘must get on’ generation, to talk about anything deep and meaningful is pointless as I am left feeling the weird one and abandoned when she starts focusing attention on the dog, lesson learnt, those conversations are best avoided. We spend a lot of time together (so plenty of learning opportunities!) and I am observing her as much as myself during our interactions, why do I feel this or that, then I remind myself that all I need to bring to the table is love and to love myself as much as her or indeed anyone when I feel tetchy or irritated.
Setting an intention at the start of ones day can cover all bases, mine has evolved into “I will bring love and joy”, this I now take with me into every high street, shop or home I visit, I can feel my inner light expanding as I walk down a road or when I chat or smile at another soul… shine and glow, shine and glow.
With weather this rubbish I would normally be thinking of sun seeking in the Med but that’s just looking outside of myself again for that solar energy, this summer has definitely brought me back to myself in a more empowered and grounded way, knowing that my inner power never left me, I just let myself cover it up by thinking I needed to reserve it for loved ones or being in a certain emotional state or with some wine or be on the beach… crazy thinking and excuses, dimming ones light… totally crazy…
Shine and glow, shine and glow.
