)Those are some of the things on my mind and heart lately.
This morning I was pondering clarity, something that I have not always been very good at for myself. Like, knowing what you actually want so that you (I) can receive it. I can work towards it - consciously or subconciously, so that the universe can provide it, so that I can see where my next steps are (baby steps- that's a fabulous topic unto itself!).
One of the things that has held me back from clarity, is that I change my mind. I grow and evolve and what I wanted last year, or 5 years ago is not what I want today.
Part of the struggle for clarity that I see now, is around doing what I 'should' do (really - in my heart - i need to DO this - like the relentless struggle to help pets find homes with People Helping Pets), vs. things that would be more 'fun', and self serving, and which I get that feeling that I'm not qualified 'enough', or that no one really wants or needs this wisdom I have to share. - like whole-human self care - mind, body, and spirit.
On top of that - there the real longing to "do it all'! Because I do LOVE it all! Art, Saving pets, sharing my decades of health and happiness knowledge,...
At least I've gotten over 'doing it all' for everybody else, too! (although sometimes I still want to).
One of my favorite people in the world is Robert Holden - if you're not familiar with him, he is just full of YUM so do yourself a favor and take a peek. There's a great article HERE he wrote about Abundance where he points to clarity as a crucial element.
So here's what I'm choosing for now:
My focus for the next four months (at which time I will reevaluate) is on my Satori yoga program. It's so exciting because it is true yoga- including practices for mind, emotions, and spiritual connection- in addition to the physical stretching and bending that we all think of as yoga. It is an amazing gift!
I can also choose consciously to give some limited but powerful time to other things - like People Helping Pets and working on the house to make it a more wonderful sanctuary in which to rejuvenate and enjoy.
And there are the tools that help me choose my daily actions and refine my precious life.
