Giving My Resignation. Officially.



***There is a giveaway in progress...go HERE to enter


"Our willingness to resign as general manager of the universe and admit that we do not know everything unhooks us from the stagnant trance of our own individual, separate realities.  And once we are able to own up to this truth and concede that we can't do this on our own, the lower aspects of ourselves settle down and the door to the higher realms opens."   Debbie Ford


Card by Susan Mrosek
She let go

I'm struggling to write this fearLESS Friday post.  I find that I am trying too hard to come up with a "stretching exercise."  I'm thinking I need to do this on my own.

In the midst of this discomfort, I've decided that the best way to know what the "right" exercise is for any given Friday, is to offer what I most need.  And what I most need today is to let go...to not try to figure out, to stop thinking.  To turn it over and trust that what I most need will reveal itself when I am in a present, receptive state.

Just yesterday, I made a little "letting go" box.  This is what it is...each time I begin to feel tense or troubled or indecisive or overwhelmed or anxious or scared shit-less about something (smile), each time I find that I am too grippy, too in-my-head about something, too attached...I will write this fear/complaint/indecision down and put it in the box.  I will turn it over.  I won't push for a decision or try to figure it out or allow my thoughts to further complicate things.  Thoughts are so damn good at further complicating.

Yesterday, I wrote a whole bunch of things down and stuck them in my little box.  It felt like relief.  My brain felt less cluttered.  More spacious.  More like it could receive.

This is what I know...the clearer and less cluttered my mind feels, the more room there is for something new & fresh, and, maybe even divine, to come through.  I am so so very ready to resign as general manager.  I don't want to make anymore decisions on my own.  I'm ready to turn every last thing over and over and over.

I'm more than ready to scream past these mind-made limitations. I'm ready! I'm ready!

Did you hear that Universe?


Settle down, lower aspects of myself!  Door to the higher realms...OPEN PLEASE.

What would you like to let go of/turn over/release/surrender to? What do you want to make space for?  Please share...I promise, it will feel like relief.
