Preparing for the New

After spending the night at Michelle’s house, a friend who I admire, I noticed how well everything worked in her life and in her home. I wondered how she could find the time to entertain the 50 guests she had for Christmas dinner. She is a wife, and a mother of two college-aged girls. In addition to that, she is helping her 87-year old mother out, who is nearly deaf and almost blind.

Is it because she’s a such a great host? Is it because she has such good energy? As a stroke survivor, I need to notice, and most of all learn, all that I can about how to survive with power, dignity and grace. And especially  good, healing energy.

All change begins with me.

In an effort to notice my blind spots, to upgrade my life, how am I preparing for new life? By being the change I want to see.  What new ideas do I need to let it in? What do I need to get rid of?  I want to feel always a sense of newness. This means new ways of being in the world. A new consciousness of all the good this life has to offer. It has to start somewhere. So I let it begin. I look around. I spot a cup on my desk. It contains two broken pens, 1 pencil with no eraser. Out they go. It feels like I am beginning.

I remember a tip from SARK, begin with micro movements. That’s all it takes to move in the direction of the positive.  Just one tiny movement. Tomorrow I intend to take another step in the direction of healing, of good energy.  In getting rid of things that don’t work for me anymore. I intend to do it with a new sense of power, dignity, and grace. And most of all healing energy.

What is it that you are preparing for?
