Since I coach others on how to love their life no matter what, I thought I would share a bit about my journey. Ok, take a deep breath. Over the past 6 months, I have been in transition or as my friend Steve says, I have plateaued which means I am getting ready to skyrocket. What do I mean by transition? Well, I have no home and I have no vehicle. Why, you may ask? I believe my Higher Self is preparing me for something, however; living out of a suitcase and being a gypsy was not what I consciously planned. At first, my ego was angry and thrashed about at the idea of letting go of my condo, putting my things in storage and living at my mom’s at the age of 46.
I have come to trust my Higher Self so instead of listening to the fearful mind of my ego and being in resistance or attempting to force change because I do not like what is showing up right in front of me, I now recognize one of the most powerful life lessons, the law of detachment. Life is always asking us to not become attached to things, ideas, or people as when we are, we will always experience emotional, mental and physical detachment or the cutting of the cord, so to speak. This is why we grieve for our losses or what we perceive we’ve lost. When all detachment really is, is a process of waking up to our own truth ~ The truth that nothing outside of ourselves can define us.
Years ago, I thought that having things would define me, make me happy or give me a level of security, which I now find the idea rather amusing. The reason is, in having or living in the nothingness I feel more secure about who I AM now than I ever have before. I can be in the nothingness, in the unknown and yet deeply know that I am supported, connected and unconditionally loved by the universe. I do not need anything outside of myself to make me whole, happy and loving for all this lives inside of me. Letting go of the need to have things because they define me is truly empowering.
My theme for 2011 is love and luxury. For love is the only thing that is real and it is a luxury to be on this planet at this time. Now, I absolutely LOVE the physical world (especially food and beautiful clothes… oh and shoes..oh and …lol!) and ALL we have collectively created. We are meant to experience ALL THAT IS and yet remain detached in loving gratitude. I know am here to experience all that is beautiful and luxurious and at the same time stay in the moment as life can shift in a heartbeat. I have learned to release my idea of what is right and wrong. Instead I choose to see the brilliance of divine manifestation as it unfolds before me and how each moment is guiding me to my ultimate destiny.
During this experience I have been given an incredible gift of recognizing brilliance in women and the unconditional giving of the feminine. My mom has been my greatest supporter, always there without judgement. During my many transitions, five Goddess girlfriends, Michelle, Krista, Katharina, Janice and Laura have generously and without hesitation, nurtured me either by offering their homes, or a room, shared their food, their vehicles and massive amounts of support as I spiral up on my journey. They are truly an example of the compassion and unconditional love that lives in the hearts of divinely brilliant women. I am forever grateful.
I do look forward to the day my Higher Self says, “Here is your home, a sanctuary you can call your own to enjoy all things beautiful.” For now, as Laura lovingly reminds me, my home is where my heart is.
Love Your Life No Matter What as Brilliance is Who You Are On the Inside
And Not What You Have on the Outside.
Share with me what you are choosing to let go of in faith. Do you trust that your Higher Self has a bigger plan for you?
