“This year is for inner growth and preparation.
“I ENJOY THE INNER QUEST AND FIND MANY ANSWERS!” #7
Excerpt From: Hay, Louise. “Colors & Numbers.” Publisher, 2010-06-16. iBooks.
Referring to this book every morning has been part of my ritual for the past six years. The messages set the tone for my days. The #7 energy forecast for 2013 seemed reasonable enough, but I had no idea how adventurous the year would be. LIFE has taken me on a transformational journey. It would appear that literally EVERYTHING about my life has changed or is in the process of changing.
Today I feel like a chrysalis opening up and a new butterfly is ready to emerge. I am learning lessons about myself. About my character and my abilities. I am also learning lessons about relationships, honesty, owning my TRUTH, and speaking up using my powerful VOICE. It is all good. Sometimes overwhelming with the rate of changes taking place, but really, all is good.
I am learning to live in the moment. Which is something that I have been attempting and preaching for years. However, now I really understand what that means. Our plans for the day can change with a simple phone call from a tradesman. We are learning to 'Go with the Flow' like my sister Mo always claims to do. It is an interesting way to deal with life. I realize that the stress comes in attempting to be in control. The peaceful existence that I long for comes with the letting go and going with the flow of life. A great lesson to learn.
The studio is out of sight, but never out of mind these days. Every time I attempt to visit there, something pulls me away. I am learning that that is okay for now. My previous goal list and expectations are not to be fulfilled at this time. I get that. I guess that it is time to let go of the goal list and just go with the flow.
Creativity is showing up in the form of making window treatments and framing prints for our new decor. Actually, this is a part of me that is really having fun. I always enjoyed being a homemaker and creating a comfortable living space.
I was warned, back in January, by my astrologist friend that this would be a year of great change for me. Although I accepted that news with excited anticipation in the moment, I had no idea how it would eventually play out. Back then, I had no idea that I would be moving to a new location and starting life over from scratch. We have been adjusting to all the changes that come with a new neighborhood, new house, new furnishings, new activities, new routine, new lifestyle, and making new friends. The everyday things that we take for granted have changed and need to be relearned. Simple things like the heating/cooling system, home maintenance systems, appliances, even the TV remote, all are different from what I have been used to. It's a daily challenge.
And added to this list is the challenge of living with a dear one 24/7. We have been married for over forty years, but I have been used to being alone in my house for at least 40 hours a week. That too has changed. Having someone around to question how and why I do things is its own kind of challenge. Ah but the mutual growth and intimacy is an amazing reward. We are still friends and that is the beauty of it. I am grateful.
So dear one, if my posts are infrequent and you miss me a little, please know that I am enjoying the adventure of this life. All is good. And one day soon, when the time is right, I will be returning to the studio. Probably full of new ideas and new ways of doing things. I can only believe that the art is evolving as well. It will be exciting to see what emerges. All in good time. All as it should be.
Until next time-
