What’s Your Nourishing Path?

What’s Your Nourishing Path?

I was recently happily wandering through this gorgeous grove of redwood trees with David and he took this photo of me walking on the path that I chose.

 While there, it struck me that there were multiple paths, and I chose this one. It felt like the most nourishing option.

Sometimes I try to do things in my life in less nourishing ways. I struggle and fight for a path that isn’t there, or I resist the actual path that is there.

 I’ve learned that when I can focus on and choose a nourishing path for myself, it usually turns out much better.

Or, I can turn something that isn’t usually thought of as nourishing, into something that is. I do this with all sorts of things, like doctor’s appointments or organizing projects or whatever else I’m busily trying to resist doing.

 And often I’ll create an unexpected sweetness to reward myself after doing something I didn’t necessarily feel like doing. And these unexpected sweetnesses are not sugar- rather they are the things that most nourish my soul.

 Asking myself this simple question; “What’s my nourishing path?” helps me to refocus, reset, or invent something new to help whatever it is become more nourishing.

 I do this with my writing and creating too- I create new paths of possibilities.

 How about you? 

What’s your nourishing path? 

And how are you choosing and inventing it? Let me know.

Love Is Effervescently New

Love Is Effervescently New

Today is our 3 year anniversary, and this is a photo of David and I teaching together in the graduating class of a membership called Succulent Wild World. It was the last class of a wonderfull 4 year program and membership that I led.

For me, it captures our love vibration perfectly. Thank you Linda Kroll for the photo. And thank you to every graduating member of this membership, and every reader of my Magic Blog- AND, we’re creating something new, to which you will all be invited.

This was at the end of class, and I was swooning with my eyes closed over something one of the members had said, or perhaps something David said- it all blends together with remarkable souls.

David taught a segment called “Signs of Love” where he uses signs that he makes and puts up, to reorient his thinking and his actions. It’s extremely effective.

One of his signs I’ve worked with is

“I Love Letting Go.”

David first created this sign when his kids were moving out of the house, and he didn’t want them to go.

So he made and put up that sign to see if he could practice loving letting go. It didn’t mean he liked it- he didn’t- but could he learn to love it? And with lots of practice, he eventually did.

As I started practicing with this message, all I could see were examples of my not loving letting go. David said that he saw lots of examples of my loving letting go, and gave examples. I hadn’t seen it that way- I would have told you that I disliked letting go, and cling onto everything to try to avoid letting go.

But I hadn’t seen it through the eyes of love- and that everything I’ve let go of is because of love- and to make room for the new, and for more love. It’s like practicing fast magic 😉

You may know that I created words to support this:

“The opposite of old is not young.

The opposite of old is new.

As long as we can experience the new, we will gloriously inhabit all of the ages that we are, and welcome all of the dreams that we have”

What are you practicing, or can you practice, loving letting go of? What’s NEW in your life?

Let me know. I’m practicing every day.

Glory In The Garden + Let’s Speak More Easily and Often About Feeling Sad

Glory In The Garden + Let’s Speak More Easily and Often About Feeling Sad

I’d been feeling sad, and then saw these glorious plants and flowers and just wanted to simultaneously eat them and shout about their glory. So I ran over to show them my love, and David took the photo.

Sometimes when I feel sad or melancholy, nature is the only comfort. It’s my form of holy communion.

Recently I’ve written more often about feeling sad or upset and some people have written to express concern that I’m “not as happy as usual.” Of course I know they’re just concerned and want me to be feeling good as much as possible.

But it always surprises me when people question how happy I am- I’ve written 18 books about my beliefs and practices about practicing feeling all the feelings in my emotional family– which of course includes the less popular feelings like despair, anger, rage, melancholy, frustration and sadness.

I’ve also written weekly in this Magic Blog for years about the same subjects.

I know that projections (it must be easier for SARK) can be strong- and because I write in bright colors and often about happy things, that I’m this super positive happy person ALL THE TIME.

And of course I’m not and wouldn’t want to be!

Because when we try to block or not feel any feeling, it pops up or bulges out somewhere else for our love and attention, and blocks us feeling our other feelings too.

I also deliberately write and express about my less popular feelings because I know that everyone experiences these kinds of feelings, and I want us to collectively speak more easily and often about what hurts as much as what helps.

I believe that when we do this, we can alchemize and blend the terrible and wonderful into a brand new mixture to use for healing, and help each other more too.

Thankfully it’s happening more and more that we can be well received when we share our “actual experience” instead of the airbrushed version.

And do know and trust that when I write about any of my feelings, I’ve already moved or am moving to new ones by the time you read about it.

So let’s practice speaking more easily and often about sadness and about all our feelings- after all, they are e-motions- made to be in motion.

Do you relate to what I’m saying? Let me know. Comment below and I’ll love to know your experience.
