Have you ever seen a hawk fly from its perch?
Inevitable, they lighten their load before lift off (if you catch my drift).
People on the other hand, tend to carry their extra baggage long after its usefulness has expired.
Whether these outdated stories, life strategies, or personal identities where originally picked up as a way to survive, or even if they were consciously chosen, when we begin to feel limited by them, it become easy to recognize the decrease in joy that accompanies their strangle hold.
My latest story-keeper, entitled "Flight," has been made for those seeking to build a practice of releasing old warn out identities and life strategies and embracing new, more spacious one's. Ways of being and thinking that allows you to feel the movement of life under your wings and declare to friends and family, "This is who I am now!"
And so, even with the new year well on its way, it's never too late to allow yourself some time and space to consider what's next. What do you need to release so that you can take flight? What do you desire to take hold of? Who are you capable of becoming when grounded in love and joy?
From me and the rest of the rebel-rousers here in the Bardolands, Happy New Year!
Yours in service,
