Change is popping up everywhere around me, and I am giving myself large, inner spaces to chew on it. Brujo is no longer employed, after 8 years at the same place, and he is exploring possibilities and options with excitement and enthusiasm, and also some trepidation. We will soon become in-laws, as his eldest son is marrying this month. I have immersed myself in the work of Dr. Mario Martinez, using it for my own deep healing and growth, with all the changes that implies. I have been digesting the growing awareness (again) of the violence against women that exists in far away places and also here at home, with its implications for women everywhere, for the whole of human society, and for my daughter and son. I have also been holding energy for many others, who are experiencing their own changes.
I am aware that any of these points could have easily pushed me off my center, not so long ago. So it is with awe and gratitude that I navigate these changes with such a sense of sustained peace, and with eagerness for the opportunities they afford me. I know that the work I have done all these years, to bring myself into alignment with my authenticity and to maintain my energetic integrity, are the reason this is possible. As so, I keep doing what I have been doing, what I already know works for me: making space for stillness; being with What Is, openly, trusting the gifts in it; returning to nature, to my breath, to gratitude, to service, to love.
