Wow! I’ve really found myself again.
Transformations and transitions have been powerful.
I looked through some photo albums this early morning and I actually remember joy and happiness and love. I see the person I was and am. I see what a wonderful, nurturing mother I was and am. I see how beautiful I was and am.
I spent so much of my life doubting my exterior and internal beauty.
I’m realizing I am beauty.
I have energy. I’m motivated. I’m excited for life. I’m hopeful.
I recognize my challenges, but carry a hope that all will be okay.
I’m counting my blessings and recognizing what a glorious life I’ve had.
All in all, every wish I’ve had as a child has come true. And every goal I had as a young adult has been met. I know if I died today, I would be content.
I have helped people through my various vocations and writings.
I have reached out.
I have been caring and thoughtful.
I have placed others first, but also learned to pamper and love myself.
It really is quite glorious.
I’m at a time in my life where I am learning to appreciate my uniqueness and also recognize my commonalities with other people.
I am less rigid and structured, more able to relax and understand my thought processes. More able to accept who I am and what I am.
I am even able to look in the mirror and like what I see.
So much growth.
I am very pleased
I’ve spent the last two weeks reawakening and cleansing the energy in my house through the practice of feng shui. And I’ve reveled in the process, spending some nine to ten-hours straight some days working on the house. (Can you say “fixation” ?) The inspiration and motivation to clean and organize my home came after more than five weeks of being couch-bound and sick from a series of infections, the longest standing being viral bronchitis.
Symbolically and energetically, while facing physical health challenges, I cleared out much stagnant energy within my body through my constant coughing and removal of chunks of phlegm. (Pardon that visual image.)
Now that my interior being has had a good scrub through, I am setting about to clear out the gunk from the exterior of my life.
Everyday I cleanse my home, I feel lighter and happier in spirit. I have more clarity than I have experienced in years and have been welcoming many gifts through this energetic cleansing process.
I feel reconnected to a part of me I haven’t felt in years. I am reawakened myself in my ability to recognize the effective and beneficial parent and homemaker, friend, and spirit I am.
*as a side note, both days I cleaned my study, the feng shui area for prosperity and money, I was rewarded within hours with unexpected monetary awards.
