I wonder how many of you look at the people around you and think they are your earth angels there to protect you and guide you on your journey. I have always felt this way about the people who have come into my life. From my family members to the best friend I met when I was five and her family, they all helped me grow. I am so blessed to have had so many amazing people around me helping me on my journey. They looked over me (still do) and helped me become who I am today.
Last week I had an overwhelming week. It was filled with what-ifs and questions if I was making the right decision going down this path. I am taking on a lot of risks financially, not to mention completely putting myself out there to the world. This makes me feel a vulnerability that I have not felt before. But then some beautiful souls reminded me that I am on the right path. First I met a beautiful woman doing readings at my favorite tea shop on Friday and after about an hour long conversation with her I felt renewed and optimistic. Got to spend an amazing weekend with my littles that consisted of enjoying each other at home.
This morning I woke up feeling invigorated again. Still nervous, but butterflies in your stomach like when you are going to do something really exciting as a kid, nervous. Then I talked to my Aunt Rachel and it was like I was catapulted again to my dreams becoming a reality. She has always been a family member I respected and looked up to as a mentor. She is the first person who introduced me to holistic forms of medicine and started my journey learning about energy healing. She has an energy about her that you can’t explain unless you meet her. She has been doing energy work for over 20 years. My children love being around her and love when she “plays with their feet.”
I was already feeling amazing after our conversation and then I received an email from her with this magic written by an unknown author. It resonates with every cell of my being…..IT’S TIME.
There comes a day, somewhere in the middle of every woman’s life, when Mother Nature herself stands behind us and wraps her arms around our shoulders, whispering
“You have taken enough now. It’s time to stop growing up, stop growing older and start growing wiser and wilder.
There are adventures still waiting on you and this time, you will enjoy them with the vision of wisdom and the companionship of hindsight, and you will really let go.
It’s time to stop the madness of comparison and the ridicule of schedule and conformity and start experiencing the joys that a life, free of containment and guilt, can bring.”
She will shake your shoulders gently and remind you that you’ve done your bit. You’ve given too much, cared too much, you’ve suffered too much.
You’ve bought the book, as it were, and worn the t-shirt.
Worse, you’ve worn the chains and carried the weight of a burden far too heavy for your shoulders.
“It’s time” she will say.
“Let it go, really let it go and feel the freedom of the fresh, clean spaces within you. Fill them with discovery, love, and laughter. Fill yourself so full you will no longer fear what is ahead and instead, you will greet each day with the excitement of a child.”
She will remind you that if you choose to stop caring what other people think of you and instead care what you think of you, you will experience a new era of your life you never dreamed possible.
‘It’s time’ she will say…
“to write the ending, or new beginning, of your own story.”
