Welcome to my peace filled space. May you feel most welcome here.
“Unfolding Your Path to Joy” does not set New Year’s resolutions. Resolutions are amazing navigational tools for a majority of people, and ‘unfolding’ celebrates those who successfully use resolutions to issue in change. “Unfolding” focuses on heart whispers and naturally allows these whispers to be heard and realized. One resource “unfolding” uses is intent; so every New Year’s sets an intent with a key word.
This key word is not set through the mind; rather by acknowledging heart whispers. Heart whispers may not necessarily be practical or logical, but they are Truth..and “unfolding” honors and respects that Truth. Let us pause here together for a moment. Allow these concepts to flow into you…have you heard your heart whisper? Do you allow your heart these expressions, which may take a multitude of different forms? When you hear these whispers do you celebrate them for the nuggets of treasure that they are?..or do you allow Fear to bury, deflect, ignore them?
My heart whispers to me throughout the day. Sometimes softly, other times boldly..I allow space for my heart expressions; sometimes felt through external connections, sometimes through walks on the beach, gazing at the sky, reading a passage in a book, journal writing, painting, kayaking, hiking, practicing yoga or meditation. My heart whispers are best heard in peace filled, quiet places. I find if I am too busy or I allow my surroundings to be loud, distracting, or full of clutter then it is near impossible to hear my heart whispers or to allow them to surface. So, I make time for quiet, to be in stillness, to *just be*.
I want to encourage my heart whispers to surface because I want to encourage Truth. My theme word this year is to guide me to make space for my heart whispers. I combined last year’s word ’embrace’ with this year’s whisper of ‘simplicity’. What my heart yearns for is fresh, clean, high quality, genuine. I cannot find any of that in the midst of drama, chaos, clutter, busyness. Rather I will ‘Know’ it in the midst of simple.
I choose to set the intention for 2011 of ’embrace simplicity’.
For an excellent article on the power of choosing a theme word for intention, please read Sandra Lee’s One Powerful Word 2011 Yours and Mine.
What simplicity means to me:
Allowing my path to unfold naturally, effortlessly, joy fully….
Opening my heart fully to Love..genuine and pure..in all of its forms..
Turning off my mind so that my senses may experience delight, joy, wonder, awe, magic…
Noticing the smallest of details, allowing for spectacular in every day life…giving praise for All in my vision…
Allowing my heart to express it self creatively in various forms..
Celebrating that Which I Do Not Know for the gifts that will be perfectly placed when I open my heart to them…
Allowing radiant Light to shine through..every moment, every circumstance..
