We all have one. That flavour, that thing, that energy that is uniquely us. And it comes out everywhere, from how we brush our teeth, and how we talk to friends when they are having a bad day, to how we fall in love. It’s who we are, at our very core.
So I was delighted, about a month back or so, to get clearly connected to mine. To see it, to feel it, to fall in love with it and really understand it and me better.
My soul essence.
It is a sparkly gold, shimmery magic. Like what was showing up a lot in the fireworks display on Saturday here in Vancouver. Raining down magical golden sparkles, filling the sky with possibility and joy and hope. Ohhhh, Ahhhhh. So beautiful, so inspiring, so playful and so soothing, all at the same time.
And just like the fireworks displays do, I want to celebrate it – to really own it, and claim it, and roll around it. To let it have its way with me. To completely surrender to it, and it’s wisdom. To trust that everything will be ok, and I don’t need to be in charge, and that everything happens in the perfect way and pace. I just need to allow it, to make space for it, and welcome it, and then get out of the way. Well, that and set a match to it.
So that is how I am going to go into my birthday (which is TODAY)… primed and ready to do a ritual to welcome in and really honour my soul essence, to, if you will, birth it on my birthday. To enjoy its magnificence and sit in the wonder of its preciousness. I don’t entirely know what the ritual will look like yet… although I know it involves stillness, and gratitude and willingness and surrender. There will be prayer and an opening up. There will be trusting and there will be grace. Lots of grace. I open to being shown.
And in so doing – I open to allowing my message and the details of my work for the next few years to come in. I open to being guided and I open to being of service in a deeper, richer, broader way. I open to living from here regularly and consistently and to trusting the magic.
Thank you Vancouver July 2013 Balance – for holding this for me, and loving me into it!!
