How often have you heard that it’s good to shake things up? To do something new? To try something different? You may tell yourself that you are in a rut.
I am all for keeping the energies moving in our life. It’s easy for them to get stagnant. Energies get stuck in our mind, and in our bodies.
We can all agree that this whole enlightenment process has shaken us up, disrupted our lives, our minds, our bodies, our finances, our relationships. There is such massive transformation taking place within us. There are days we wonder who the hell we are anymore!
There are very few people on the planet who have initiated this awakening in such a quantum way. Wanting to be reborn in this lifetime, in these bodies. Which changes this life and these bodies in a way that others do not understand. Hell, we don’t even understand.
We have let go of so much in the name of our freedom, and yet we don’t even know for sure what that freedom is. And what more we will have to ‘give up’ to have that freedom. Admittedly we are feeling that freedom as something we experience outside of our conditioned minds, as a feeling, as a state of consciousness
Many are reporting that they have never felt more unsure, and have never felt, at times, more joy, than they do now. It’s certainly not a steady or predictable rise. Its more like a buffeting around, one moment we feel connected to this magnificent eternal self, the next we feel totally lost.
Safety and survival issues seem to be front row and center at times, and even when we are feeling good, we may still feel an undercurrent of anxiety that seems to want our attention.
TAKE THE RUT OUT OF ROUTINE
I love my morning routine, or, as I like to refer to it, my morning ritual, of sitting at a local cafe, writing in my journal and sipping coffee. A while back I left a cafe community I frequented for over ten years. But I like this new community. It suits me better. For the most part I don’t find myself having to jockey others’ neediness. There are a couple of people I sit with from time to time, which affords me a nice break from my otherwise solitary existence. I like to call it ‘company without committment.’
There are times I switch off and do things differently, because I do enjoy variety in my day. But I have noticed that, more than not, I like my routines. Maybe because of all the changes, major and minor that have been my life…..NOTHING routine there! So my personal rituals and routines help me to feel a sense of stability, safety and continuity.
And I’m beginning to experience routine things in a new way, with more sensuality, more feeling, more depth.
So I am no longer hard on myself for needing my routines. Especially as I invite my new consciousness to enjoy them with me. Kind of takes the rut out of routine!
