Week Seven – Woo hoo!!! Finally I am at the end of my journey. I have arrived whole, strong, harmonious and powerful. I am here, further connected to myself and my spirituality after getting close to the depths of my soul.
Major Lessons Learned:
This journey has allowed me to grow and expand spiritually. I can truly say that I have embraced all aspects of me, including my vulnerability, the vulnerability that researcher and storyteller Brené Brown speaks of in On Vulnerability.
This journey that Marley and I embarked on, rocked me to the core but left me more aware, better prepared, more patient, in an amazing space of strength, and celebrating myself. Through this personal passage, I was able to take stock of the fears that I had and have, and learn how to deconstruct them. Life checked my integrity for quality assurance. I let go of the past and that which no longer serves me. My intuition is steadily used to help me move through all aspects of life and I am enjoying the shift in perspective of a ‘me’ to ‘we’ mentality. One of the changes that particularly brings a smile to my face is that I have made room for my passions, especially love. Not above all of my beautiful shifts, but still very important, through these last seven weeks I have set an intention on patiently, finding the man of my dreams.
I am love. I am ready. I am me!
Have I found my “One”? No not yet, but I am much better prepared for us to feel and experience each other when we arrive in each other’s life.
I love to share. I love to share my thoughts, my material goods, my food, my experience, my life. Sharing is a form of education. I shine when I share. On further thinking of a quote by Eckhart Tolle, presented in Week Seven, “Your task is not to search for love but to find a portal through which love can enter.” I realized that sharing is my portal. As I share me. He will get to know me. As he gets to know me, he will share himself. Through this we will get to know each other and know quickly that love lies within each of us for the other.
Living a Charmed Life:
I once told my brother-from-another-mother that he lives a charmed life. That applies to me too. I live a life that I choose. That which I truly want, I have or experience. It is filled with beauty, love, health and wealth. Soon my charmed life will be shared with my husband.
My husband, the man in my dreams, hasn’t changed. His essence stills draws me closer and our souls still dance at night.
I have changed. I am the Big O and so is he.
My mom has always said that I can find any reason to party. She’s right. To celebrate all the lessons learned from the relationships of my past. To honor those relationships and the valuable insights received. To celebrate the old emme and truly welcome the new, I want to have a quick dance party with one of my new favorite songs and video, Losing You by Solange. My party has my friends and my exes and everyone is on four-wheeled skates, rolling to the beat. My dance syncs with the beat of my desire and I sing along on my imaginary microphone.
Thank you for following me on my path to Calling in my “One”. Whatever journey you embark on, I hope that I have given you some thoughts to take with you.
‘A bit of advice given to a young Native American at the time of his initiation:
“As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm.
It is not as wide as you think.”’
