Reminder: Faith, spirituality, love, wisdom – no matter what lies within you
I wanted to post something from my red book, my book of fire, a spiritual journal with all of the tenets I believe in, all of the wisdom that I’ve accrued over years, journeys, and hidden blessings. I searched high and low – went through all of my old journals, every piece of paper I own and it suddenly hit me. A couple months ago I got into a car accident and my dad told me he would clean out the car, but he never got around to it and I completely forgot – I never grabbed my red book. Words cannot explain how low my heart sank. That journal housed epiphanies, deep spiritual flow writings, self-love reminders, sketches of the “rock star” tattoo I’ve planned forever, core beliefs, clearly set intentions, maps of my heart – things that I hold most dearly. Gone.
This is all just to say I know; I know how hard it is to let go of things. This was a reminder that even something that I put so much of my heart and soul into is just another passing thing. The love and intention that I poured into that journal made it special, but the journal itself is of this world and the love and intention will still remain.
Alas, I will not be posting anything from that book, but I have full intention on beginning a new one and instead I’m going to do what I said I would a couple of posts back and let you know what I’ve been up to:
First, I was sick for about a week and it sucked. I don’t care to relive that part of my November so I’ll just leave it at that.
Now onto the good stuff! I have been writing, just not in blog form. During my jobless adventures I spent a good bit of my time furiously typing out a book/program/manifesto and it’s evolved into something more than I originally thought it would be. It started as a mini-book that would be self-published or e-published on vulnerability. I realized two pages in that I couldn’t fully explain vulnerability or expect to teach someone to be vulnerable without the other pieces to the puzzle.
Vulnerability is closely tied to other concepts that I came to realize a lot of people in my life had blocks around. They couldn’t get to vulnerability because they couldn’t accept their authentic truth or realize that they had one. They couldn’t be their authentic self because they didn’t love who they were, they didn’t perceive themselves and the world with love. They couldn’t love themselves because they couldn’t embrace their own shadows as essential to their being a whole person. They couldn’t embrace their shadows because they couldn’t let go of anything (especially control). So VALUE coaching was birthed into the world; VALUE – Vulnerability Authenticity Love Unshackling Embracing Shadows. I’ve been plying away at this and a free mini e-book (yay free!).
Add More ~ing to Your Life was a spiritual catalyst for me and the author Gabby Bernstein often speaks of the metaphysical text she studied, A Course In Miracles, and I have been called to follow in her foot steps and study the same. This pursuit has also brought me to study speed reading. Working my way up to 600 wpm! You know, slowly but surely.
I will do my very best to deliver content more frequently and in the meantime, forgive me for being a naughty blogger!
With love and celebration,
