After the Shift

Nov 14, 2011 by

Well, it’s the 14th of November.  Not an auspicious day as calendars go, but it is today and it’s all I have.

There was much hoo-haw a few days back.  We rang bells, meditated, made intentions and prayers, held ceremonies, and danced a little more than usual.  We all came together in the hopes of drawing back some peace, love, and joy into our lives.

We all want peace, love, and joy.  We cling to it when we find it and we weep when we lose it.

For me, 11.11 was more about reconnecting, recommitting, and reacquainting myself with all things spiritual.  The last three months at the Woo have been a hard navigation, and in the stress, anxiety, and confusion some of my connections to spirit got disconnected if not severed.

So, here’s where I am: I am appreciating that every day can be a new start.  I know, I know, that is as corny as it comes.  But really, doesn’t every funk all source from the same problem: I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do about it!  So, the key is to remember that with every new day, every new moment, and every new breath you can begin again.

One of the most powerful things ever said to me was, “if you don’t like your choice, don’t beat yourself up, just choose again.”

So, on 11.11 I chose again.

I chose connecting with Spirit.

I chose making new intentions.

I chose creating a new reality for myself.

I chose joy over sadness.

But here’s the catch… none of those choices guarantee that I will be able to stay in that place.  I have to continually choose again.. without clinging, without grasping.  Just simply choosing again.

And always, always remembering that every breath is a new beginning.
