Change is good. It allows us to stretch ourselves, to become more than what we are today. Agree? If so, how has change impacted your life in a positive way?
The purpose of my blog this week is to bring laughter, joy and happiness into everyone’s life.
I lost my oldest son, Bo, at the ripe age of 22, just nine years ago. At first I went into total denial. I kept telling myself he was away at college and soon he would be coming home. I buried myself in my work, stacked heavy blocks on top of my emotions and moved like a robot through my days. I was afraid to stop moving because I knew the blocks would tumble and reality would set in, which it did. And on those occasions, I cried the guttural sounds of sorrow and pain, like a mama cow does when she’s separated from her calf. Yet, it was in those moments that I could feel my son’s arms around me. I felt as if he was saying, “It’s okay, Mom. It was my time to go. Please don’t be sad. I love you. You need to get on with your life.”
If you missed yesterday’s interview with Sonia Choquette , it’s not too late to tune in and experience the importance of breath work, learn about the four easy steps to create a Six Sensory Life as you tap into your intuition, and hear about what the universe is asking of you in 2013 as you shift from the external world into the internal world. Then, experience firsthand how you can learn to listen to your heart. And, I must admit I felt a bit vulnerable when asked to participate in one of Sonia’s exercises, but the outcome was worth it. I felt a shift occur in my energy field and calmness filled my spirit. In that moment, I knew I was in my truth and had tapped into my authentic self. Listen, and try Sonia’s exercise out for yourself. I’d love to hear back from you.
The bluebird is my favorite bird.
Every year around spring these beautiful creatures arrive
in my backyard and build their nest in their weathered home.
Filled with joy, I grab my camera and click away.
This is one of my all-time favorite shots. It speaks volumes.
Did you know that the keynote words for bluebirds are modesty, unassuming, confidence and happiness?
“The bluebird is symbolic of a passage, a time of movement into another level of being. It is a connection to human fertility and a new confidence and happiness coming into your own.” *
“Bluebirds homes front entrances face south, the direction for awakening the inner child.”*
If a bluebird comes into your life, look for opportunities to touch the joyful aspects of yourself you may have lost touch with and take time to enjoy yourself.
Also, the color blue is associated with the throat chakra, creative expression.
Wishing all joy and happiness today and every day of your life.
