As we are transitioning into a new season, it is a wonderful time to become clearer. It is an opportunity to let go of old ways and to be open to fresh new beginnings.
Over the past month, I have been fortunate enough to spend time on a deeply relaxing retreat in The North of Bali with my best friend. Then a weekend away for a part work & part romantic adventure with my husband. Then a school holiday break, relaxing on the coast with my husband and four vibrant teens and just this weekend a night in the city with my mum and daughter to see the Australian Ballet. Life is amazing!
It has been a month of space and great reflection where I have received so much insight and gratitude. I feel more full of love than what I have ever before. I am witnessing how the more I am being myself and expressing myself, I am feeling my heart magnify! I discovered the power of doing less and focusing on what is most important at the time, rather than many things at once.
I am totally committed to choosing to create more ease in my life.
It is amazing having an awareness of ease and truly believing it is possible. I am experiencing this ease in every aspect of my life. It has meant I have had to say no to some things and some people. At times, I have had to question myself and what I am choosing.
Growing up my father would always say to me “Take it easy”, “Don’t overdo it”. It has taken me a long time to fully appreciate that I can take it easy and when I take it easy there is no over doing!
Sometimes complication can be such a familiar pattern that we don’t even realise that our life can be different. Complication can be a distraction from doing what we love, from being who we really are and keeps us small and can align ourselves to follow someone else’s beliefs. It is time to be free of limitations, to take responsibility for who you are and no longer hold yourself accountable to live up to other people’s expectations.
The more I am aware of my body and listening to my intuition, which is so often the quiet still voice, that is with me at all times, the more I am guided to choosing ease. It is meaning that I am willing to go deeper into trust and be open to not always knowing the answers. I am able to be open to receive support from those around me and feel the embrace of the planet surrounding me.
Right now is the perfect time to choose more ease in your life.
Start with reflecting on how you are experiencing life. Are there any areas where you feel could be easier? What is taking your attention? What takes a long time and a lot of energy that you no longer need to be part of? Or you could change the amount of energy you give it. Or in the case where it is something which clearly needs your energy and focus at the moment, allow yourself the space & time to reflect on it. If there is a way you could make it easier, get support or break it down to bite sizes.
As you enter the new season, how about letting yourself step into a greater awareness on how you can choose life to be easier than what it is.
