Lately I have discovered something about myself. I have noticed that I am beginning each day with a different pulse beat. My rhythm seems to have changed. My pace has altered. It is not that I am rushing forward, no. It is as though I am steadfastly moving forward. And when I pause, it is quite intentional. There is a kind of cord running through me that I have grasped and am using as a tether. But it is not for safety’s sake. It is a tether of connection. A connection to what I am moving towards. I am moving forward and into a call. It is a call of service. To more than one aspect or to more than one dream or vision. It is to all possibilities. I am climbing up onto my seat of power each day. It gives me the vantage point to see the distractions, to be on the look out for the obstacles, to glance around the corner and to gaze beyond. I have lost all fear. And I do not say this with any arrogance. But with a sense of sureness. I know I won’t be given more than I am ready for. I know I can walk to this place with grace. I know that my soul is open to the lessons and to the gifts. I know. This I know.
"When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid." ~Audre Lorde
How else can I fully commit myself to service and bring my best of intentions to each day if I do not know this place of power intimately? How else can I allow myself the vulnerable moments so that I can stay open and soft and flexible? How else can I listen to the wisdom in the words spoken, see the inspiration in the visions before me, feel the love of every beautiful moment and BE present, fully present? There is no other way. This I know.
As a shaman, as a woman of Spirit, as a healer, as a woman honoring her role on this glorious globe I awake each day with this essence of who I am and who I am becoming and I hold it with gratitude for the blessings that surround it. I hold it with acceptance that my growth will at times come with challenge. I hold it with honor of those who have come into my life as the gifts that they are. And I respect the call that has charged me to follow this path. This I know and for me, there is no other way.
Blessings ~ Lisa
