As I enter back into my everyday life, I know there will be many nuances and shifts that occur. There are events in our lives that can take time to glisten all that has been experienced. When I left for Ghost Ranch, I had a few things in my life that needed to be laid open. I needed distance in which to calm down, breath and listen. I needed to achieve a level of clear headedness that was required to truly look at my life, where I have been, where I wanted it to go and where it was actually going.
I have realized this truth.........that it's ok to let go. To gently and kindly let go of situations that no longer fit or have run their course. To know that sometimes "your appointment is just over." To let go of the parts of my life that have taken me away from my center. To understand that there will always be people that will be disappointed with my decisions and those that are indifferent and still others, those rare, beautiful individuals that applaud and support me at every turn. And it's ok.
At the end of the day, each one of has a responsibility to ourselves to answer those questions. The questions of individual purpose, our own higher calling, the song of our soul. Where will it lead us? Where will we allow it to go? The only person that can answer those questions for me is me.
Here's what I find to be true...........when you shift from your center, deep down at the essence of your being, you know it. It may feel different for each of us. For me, it's an ache that keeps calling to me, sometimes just out of reach. But every time I find my way back, I can look behind me and see the voice of my higher self was always there, whispering and sometimes wailing for me to listen..........just listen.
