As we slide into Libra season… I am reminded that Libra is about beauty and pleasure… and ease. That’s right. Ease.
All of that and more.
As it turns out I don’t come by “ease” naturally.
In fact, can you believe that I used to tell people that my name was Signý Ann Wilson, with no E’s. It seemed the simplest way to say it. There is no “e” in Signy, and in fact there is no “e” in the way my Ann is spelled, and I thought I was just being clever saying that there is no “e” in Wilson (obviously)… but say it out loud… no E’s. No Ease.
So yes, ironically ease is hard for me.
I usually pick the rougher road, both because I like to stretch and challenge myself (a Good Thing), but also because I think that “easy” means I am not giving it my all (not such a good thing, in case that wasn’t obvious). I choose the things that are hard, and then I also see what is hard about them, and everything else for that matter.
I am not saying all this by way of recommendation. In fact the opposite. So much so that I will be dedicating this Libra season to the cultivation, nay even gentler, the nurturing of EASE.
That’s right. When faced with decisions, I will pick the easier path. Or the fun-er path. Same, same. I will see which way the world points me (as determined by what is least effort), and I will go there willingly, even joyfully.
Seems easy enough, right? Yet, somehow I doubt it. With all the rewiring of my neuropathways required for this… it will be an adventure for sure. And I will share what I learn, both from my experience, but also about what research I do around it. What tips I unearth. What quotes or articles I discover. All in an attempt to inspire more ease everywhere.
Speaking of that… the first thing I am throwing on the pyre of ease… is my run for the cure project. It is still so dear to my heart, and maybe it will happen for next year, or in some different iteration, but here is what I noticed… it was not flowing, it was not easy and it was also coming at a time when I have rather a whole bunch of other stuff on the go… So, for the same of my sanity and also as an act of trust in the universal flow and mind… I relinquish it, along with all of the struggle and trying hard.
So I have started the divestment… with my offering… what thing or decision or action that is not flowing easily will you give up, let go of, release?
