Unexpected lesson


Funny thing happened while getting ready for work this morning...

I've been trying to get clear about the wording on my website. It's been a BUMMER of a block....I've been trying desperately to be gentle and kind with myself which has been a real shift for me and my controlling ways. So instead of forcing it (which is my normal tendency-- PUSH ON THROUGH!) I've been doing other work, mostly energetic woo woo stuff like clearing my chakra's... yes, I said, clearing my chakra's, don't knock it 'til ya try it, it's amazing stuff.

So in my Chakra clearing work I was focusing on my heart, throat and third eye Chakras so the words will flowwwww. Each chakra is related to a specific color, and I wanted to wear Blue today. Blue is the color of your throat Chakra and wearing related colors is therapeutic. (I can tell a lot about what's going on in my life, and yours, by the colors we are drawn to, cool right?!) Your throat chakra is your voice, not just your physical voice but more importantly, speaking your TRUTH. It's also the energetic connection between un-manifest and manifest, meaning turning your dreams into reality. It's where the rubber hits the road, for lack of a better analogy.

Personally, I don't have a lot of blue clothing. Hint-hint, very telling about my personal issues about speaking my truth. But, I'm working on it!

So, as I was saying, I don't have a lot of blue clothing, but I do have a beautiful necklace and matching earrings that my hubby gave me that have gorgeous blue stones. (He's pretty tuned in whether he admits it or not. Looking Back, he's been buying me blue things forever now. Trying to give me a push perhaps?)

Much to my disappointment, I discovered the necklace completely, hopelessly tangled around a double hoop earring. I almost instantly gave up since time was short. But, something told me I had to complete this task...ugh, OK, fine! I began to hastily unravel the necklace, getting more frustrated by the second at my lack of progress. I was actually making it worse. What was this actually teaching me anyhow? Not to be lazy and leave my jewelry thrown together where it can get desperately tangled?!

Then it slowly begins to dawn on me...TAKE A DEEP BREATH. Get out of your head. Instead of starting in the middle, find the beginning. Feel your way through it, follow your intuition, slow down, let it flow....Done.

Untangled. Mission accomplished.

The freaking necklace was a metaphor for the block I was experiencing about trying to get the WORDS out. Speaking my Truth.

I picked up my pen immediately and wrote, "You have my permission to GO for THIS. Move forward the words are ready."

And they were.

Crazy, beautiful stuff.
