As usual, I was asking myself a bunch of questions, all under the guise of personal growth, discovery, and to learn more about myself. While I do think that is important….I know a balance is needed.
After I over-thought about my over-thinking — I realized that sometimes it might be better just to be in my heart. To be with love. To lead with love. To be open to everything with love.
I want to let go of my perceived need to over analyze, to always listen for a deeper meaning of everything that is being said, to release my judgment on what is going on.
I want to observe with love. Interact with love. Show up with love.
I did an exercise with a coach the other day involving a visualization journaling process. Through a visualization and breathing exercise, I was able to create an image in my mind about my recent move.
It was interesting because my mind wanted me to visualize a deep rooted dark brown tree, expressing strength and connectedness and a sense of solidness. But my heart quickly rejected that image. I then checked in with my gut saying “just sit with it”…”what image is really coming up?”…”Don’t think….feel.”
The image was clear…pink, hearts, floating, and free all were words that came out of my mouth to describe the image. I felt light, airy, and almost a sense of giddy when I explained it. A far cry from the heavy, rooted tree that I thought I ‘should’ have.
And yet another reminder to drop the elevator from my head to my heart. To go with a lighteness, airy-ness and a sense of giddy. To live in love. Allow love. And be love. Just plain love.
