The end of the month is nigh and I am getting those little bubbles of excitement, deep in my belly, about What’s Next in the world of ME. This month, my Medicine Wheel theme has been JOY and I feel that it’s been about connecting at a deeper level of JOY.
During the first week, I broke relationships ~ challenged friendships and my marriage. The second week continued in that vein, with glimpses of light through lots of stormy skies. Week 3 was about uncovering the new parts of me, those which had been hidden away by the baggage of the last 40-odd years. And, the last week or so has been about connecting in a new way to the Things I Love.
Today, the energies are really flowing from JOY month into the new theme: BEGINNINGS. I am So Excited! Already, I am engaging in an ‘ending’ while NEW never-before-experienced opportunities are ‘arriving’. Very, very cool.
My mantra or words to live by has been “How Many Lives Have I Touched? Have I Touched Yours?” It was a fabulous question posed in an episode of Numbers that really caught my attention. Now, as well as these two questions, I am adding 3 more words: “Give A Voice”.
For a couple of months, now, I have been aware of the number of people, past and present, who don’t have a voice. They are the characters from our pasts, our childhood selves who were abused or shut down, our teenage selves who were never allowed to explore other ‘voices’, our ‘partner in a relationship’ selves who haven’t yet been able to find their true voices. Then there are the past life selves like “Beatrice Margaret” who needs and wants someone to tell her story because she couldn’t speak her truth due to the physical limitations and the times in which she lived … she is not the only past life character who is wanting to Have A Voice.
I can only say that I feel immense inspiration and excitement about the forward path. I am ready to start the next part of my life’s journey. I am Touching Lives and Giving Voices to those who are unable to or unpractised in Speaking Up … and I am Grateful.
