Food For Thought # 11

“We, as a collective, have crossed the Rubicon, energetically speaking. The path to enlightenment, that waking up from the three dimensional dream state, is a one way journey. No going back to the good ol’ days. We can not unlearn what we now know to be true. So now what? It is my hope that we all at some point embrace the mystery, that forward motion into the great unknown. May we learn to trust that
which we feel to be true in our hearts as our guiding compass in all that we do. We have gone full circle as we searched unsuccessfully our outer world for answers to the most basic questions of who am I and why am I here? We are realizing, slowly but surely, that all we seek lies within each of us. Ones truth is recognized, not as words, but how it feels, a deep knowing. Our work now is to learn to trust that intuitiveness, this connection to the universe, to the All-that-is.”

Who Am I? Why Am I Here?
Who do I choose to be?
How do I want to spend my life?

“I no longer seek truth from that which I call my outer world. This is not to say that what I perceive though my eyes does not take my breath away, for it does, often. There is so much beauty abound but we must look for it with an open heart, especially now during our transition out of the old. As I move forward in my own journey, leaving behind what no longer serves, my perceptions, truths about what I see, change, become more and much deeper. My outer world did not change. What changed was my view of it, my opinions and resistance to the ‘what is.’ In short, I surrendered to the magnificence of this mystical journey we call life.” ~ John Dunn

“Words fall short here to describe what I am experiencing with friends of mine as they cast of the old and let go of what no longer serves their highest good. It is truly beautiful and incredibly heart warming. I am deeply moved and honoured to be part of their transformation/metamorphosis. I am changing as well in ways that are immensely deep, beyond words. And like many, I have no idea where this will take me. However, I do know in my heart that I am on my true path. Embracing the unknown is not easy but I hold no fear because I FEEL the truth of my journey in my solar plexus. For me no other confirmation is required. I would like to remind us all not to worry too much about what the future holds. Let us once again remember that we are co-creators here in this reality. As we continue to find our truth from within, our outer experience will reflect back to us profound and beautiful manifestations that match our new heart based philosophies. This is universal law and so it must be.”

Thoughts

See You Never, 2020.

2021 is here. And it’s been difficult to wish everyone “A Happy New Year” – although I have because I do hope we all can find happiness in our days ahead. The energy brought on by the Solstice and the new year has me feeling excited, but also conflicted. It’s hard to explain. I do wish the best for everyone in this upcoming year. But I understand that 2020 hung a number on humanity. I know many of us are finding it difficult to find things to be happy about. A flip of our calendar page does not magically change the current energy and narrative that has been playing out on Planet Earth this year. We didn’t get here overnight and it’s not going to change overnight.


My wish for you, and myself, as we navigate this year is to find small moments of respite, relief and joy. I use breath and the current now moment to help me guide my emotions. I find it helpful to come back to the current moment, when I’m consumed with anxiety of what is currently going on in our world, or if my mind shifts to the future of what is yet to be. To find something in this now moment that brings me joy – like the beautiful sunset or snowfall, the laugh of my partner, the purrs of our cats.


I am still optimistic of what the fate of humanity is. We have a lot of work to do, but I believe in us. I sense things are going to get worse before they get better. But we’re warriors and I believe we will get through this. Perhaps a little more worse for wear, but wiser nonetheless.


I have been feeling rather introspective for a while now. My energy tends to follow the seasons. Winter, I go in. I’m quieter. I have a lot of conversations with myself. I’m less social – wanting more time to just be. Summer time lights me up with the sunshine and beautiful weather. I feel like my best self that time of year. I accept the ebbs and flows in my inner world. Riding the wave of emotions that inevitably come with being here right now has been part of my work. Listening to and trusting these emotions, and not judging myself for whatever it is I am feeling has been so important. Allowing myself to be human and come as I am is vital to my mental health.


It has never been more clear to me that the only thing I can control is my inner world – the people I choose to give space to, what I am giving and not giving my attention to, how well I am taking care of myself. I cannot control all the things that are going on in the world, and as much as I would love to just snap my fingers and wake up to the version of society I feel like we are capable of and one that I feel like I belong in, I know the best thing I can do is continue to be that change I want to see. Through the thoughts I think, the words I speak, the choices I make, how I show up for myself and the people I interact with.
So my lovelies, thank you for being here with me on my journey – whether you are new to my blog or have been here since the beginning – I appreciate you. I will continue to post on here with my father’s Food For Thought Series; I hope you have been enjoying those. And I will continue to post my thoughts as I feel called to do so.
Let’s take a collective breath right now together…


Know you are not alone. You are loved. We will get through this together. One day at a time, one moment at time, one breath at a time.

In the coming days, may you find a little more kindness, peace, and empathy for yourself and others, as we navigate this unprecedented time.

Big love as always,
Steph

May we all find a way in our days to be as relaxed as Hobbes is here. 😊
