So confession, I honestly have been thinking for some time about what to write my first blog post about. I researched ideas, reflected upon it, thought about possible concepts and scraped them. I set an arbitrary deadline for myself and when that day came and went...I came to a realization that I don't have to think about what I am going to write. The mere concept of me thinking about a topic was creating anxiety, a block that stopped creative ideas from coming to me. I was discussing the challenges of this concept with my Personal Foundations class through CoachU and in that moment, I allowed to let it all go. I expressed that I was going to let go of the feeling that I had do anything with the blog or any other aspect of my life.
To be in a state of relaxation, is when true alignment and creativity can flow. So I am going to continue to write just as do in my journals that are full of ideas, writings, poems...all pieces of me. When those words pour out of me, there is no aspect of me that is thinking about how it sounds, how others may perceive it or read it. It just is. So as I ask my partners in coaching to step into a place of vulnerability, I will do the same. I am allowing myself to be vulnerable and open with my shares, as this practice is freeing. If it can be an outlet or a beacon of light, for just one person to express him/her self, then it is very much worth it. As we continue to explore, create and guide each other along this process, I recognize that I have a tendency to try to achieve perfectionism. While I believe it is a good quality to set a vision and be mindful of receiving it, balance comes into play - to be aware of any force, strain, push or "should" talking. There is nothing that should be done or felt. It just is. I am grateful that I have created a channel that I am able to share in a space that welcomes others to explore.
I listened to a powerful teaching this morning from Matt Kahn of True Divine Nature. He opened up with a number of questions to ask oneself, to explore feelings within and our truth. The question that is with me today is, "How am I being guided?" Today, in this moment... I am being guided to share pieces of me through this blog, to be creative and continue to grow in my role as the best version of myself, as a life coach. The only way I can do this, is to continue to be aware- to learn, educate, practice and be mindful. I am being guided to meet every person, every circumstance, every word with intention. To be aware of its purpose and know, that I am always being guided...always.
So I ask you "How are you being guided?"
I send you love and light on your journey. May you continue to explore.
