I am finding myself in a bit of an ebb these days.
When I feel like this I ask for direction and to know what is best for me to consider and reflect on. (I use different angel and message card decks when I need guidance.)
Today Flow, Flourish and Faith were the cards that came forward. And of course, they are the perfect cards for where I am at today.
As I listen to my intuition and ask for guidance, I sense a soft and nurturing space.
I get the message that it is time to slow it all down, to really absorb the last few months of learning and doing.
I must admit that slowing it all down is not an easy thing to do. I have been a doer, an "accomplisher". I have often run full speed ahead in my excitement and enthusiasm which for the most part has worked out just fine.
Doing and accomplishing are valid, they have their seasons but lately I am feeling pulled to a different way. The wisdom of the seasons have been speaking to me, and now is a time for harvesting, storing and resting.
Flow (surrender to trust the power of flow)
Flow is a natural state, life moves and transitions according to the seasons, the great order in the Universe. Why do I find it hard at times to go with the flow? If I simply remembered to pause, to check in with what’s happening and speaking to me, I think it might be easier. And yet I often forget this. I forget to surrender.
“Going with the flow is responding to cues from the universe. When you go with the flow, you’re surfing life force. It’s about wakeful trust and total collaboration with what’s showing up for you.” - Danielle LaPorte
Flourish (nurture your field of dreams and flourish)
I love this word. Flourish. It evokes in me the feelings of health, growth, joy and abundance. And just like a garden, my dreams need to be nurtured. I have planted the seeds of my dreams and they need tending. The wisdom is in knowing what stage of growth each seed is in and giving them what they need suitable to their stage of growth. Some of my goals and dreams have come to fruition quicker and with ease, while others are an enduring commitment.
“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.” Gertrude Jekyll
Faith (practice faith as you release fear of the unknown)
I can feel faith, but to define it I must think about it. Faith is a complete trust or confidence in someone or something. I have faith in myself and my abilities, I have faith in life, I have faith in the higher power of Love.
I have and will continue to bump up against fear of the unknown, but my faith will help me to stay the course. I need faith in order to cultivate a life that is thriving, flourishing and meaningful to me.
Perhaps you are going through a similar transition and what I have expressed is of some help to you too. Tell me how flowing, flourishing and faith are showing up in your life these days.
I appreciate your support; thanks for reading and commenting!
