Moving into 2015

Choose Love

“You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean mush. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, ‘I forgive. I’m finished with it.”  — Maya Angelou

The guideposts for me moving into 2015 are:  GRATITUDE AND FORGIVENESS

Within those two words my creative process will unfold as DREAM, CREATE, STUDY, LEARN, INQUIRE, PREPARE.  I found it interesting that the first new Nia (www.nianow.com) routine I selected to teach in 2015 is called “Dream.”  I love synchronicity.  So, I’m literally “moving” into 2015 with the first word in my creative process — Dream!!

In order for me to bring forth anything new, I have to let go of the old.  I’ve tried stuffing the old into the new, hoping that perhaps a few bulges here and there could be overlooked.  But not so.  The old has to be let go…completely.  My way, the only way I have found to do this, is to forgive and to be grateful.

And as Maya Angelou’s quote suggests, it takes courage.  Courage enough to stand up and say “this far and no further.”  It’s done.  I forgive and now I must move on in gratitude.  The two go hand in hand, gratitude and forgiveness.  They are the mother and father of liberation.

I am free to dream, create, study, learn, inquire and prepare.  My creativity has no boundaries. I am unleashed.

An Abundance of Energy

As seems to be the case in the last 12 month, I’m dealing with a physical injury; this time a sprained knee.  A friend (thank you Norma) commented to me that in Louise Hay’s book, “You Can Heal Yourself,” knee injuries can be about stubborn ego and pride; inability to bend, fear, inflexibility, won’t give in.  And to this I say, “Who, ME? Stubborn ego and pride?  Inability to bend?  Won’t give in??  ME??”

 

The new thought pattern. according to Hay, is “Forgiveness. Understanding. Compassion. I bend and flow with ease, and all is well.”   But for me this is not a new thought pattern.  I understand about forgiveness and compassion.  So what are these physical manifestations telling me?

Abundance.  That’s what came to me.  Abundance of love.  Abundance of life.  Abundance of truth.  Abundance of energy.

It’s been suggested that I get an MRI to get to the bottom of this ongoing  pelvic rotation problem as well as my knee re-injury.  But do I really want to subject my body to an MRI?  It’s still under consideration.

What if Life is saying that I have an abundance of energy; I am a vibrational being in a physical body and what if I were to continue to teach Nia from a more vibrational standpoint?  Obviously I have a body, so I live in the physical world.  As far as I know, science and medicine have not come up with a way to live forever, so yes, I will age and eventually this physical body will pass away.  And what is left then?  You got it.  Vibration.  Energy.  Until my body leaves this earth, my plan is to teach Nia…there will have to be an obvious shift of consciousness in order to allow that to happen.

I have absolutely no idea what this means.  Abundance is the word that is showing up in my mind, my heart, my physical body, the world around me.  I’m being asked to listen to creation.  Listen to what is being manifested.  Listen to the abundance of energy that is present.  Maybe at the age of 62, my body is asking that I find a different Level 3 energy (Level 3 being the highest level of physical energy exerted in Nia).  I’m still mulling it over.  Something is happening.  Another shift is about to take place.  And I’m welcoming it with open arms.

I’m also willing to surrender.  To let go of “stuff.”   It is a bit difficult to bend, to be flexible, to walk through the eye of a needle while carrying a matching set of Samsonite luggage full of crap.  Lighten it up.  Energy…a vibrational shift.

And I may still go and have the MRI.  I think it would be fascinating if the MRI showed nothing by a flow of energy and vibration through my body…it is there.
