Moodling in the circles of life….

This weekend, after two years ‘away’, my tools, personal treasures and creative bits and bobs circle their way back to land in my ‘happy bubble’ home.

I have promised to gift myself time to sift, sort and feel my way with each piece. The old loo at the end of my little hallway is not used and makes a grand storehouse. On deciding what to keep and what to let go of, maybe some new creative sparks will emerge, maybe they won’t. It is what it is in this moment.

There is an ease of acceptance that there is no workshop space to create in, yet there is floor space here that I can use. I am weaving with the wisdom that to let go of old hopes, dreams, ideas and accumulated stuff will create some much needed space for the new to say ‘Hello, what about trying this?’

In the sifting and sorting there may well be sparks of joy from new creativity and hopeful possibilities. That’s the kind of joy that burns away pain, letting the past settle and sending a message into the future on what might be.

Are you worrying about the fact that you worry too much?? What does worry create anyway? More worry and blow that for a lark!

One of the Reiki sayings is ‘Just for today I will not worry’. I was pondering whilst baking this morning on the things we worry about and the short answer is everything.

Worry begets yet more worry.

I have yet to see a chicken, headless or otherwise, racing around in circles as they can always been seen sleeping or pottering about pecking the ground in a determined fashion.

I look across and see our ‘boys’ slumbering peacefully, resting in the sure and certain knowledge that they will have a walk later. If I forget to do this then they will follow me around till I get the message.

Re-arranging that spreadsheet in an impressive fashion won’t change the fact that you are short on funds for paying the bills. So rather than focussing on the lack of finance, stop the worry and talk to trusted friends as a sounding board for ideas or let your mind float free and the answers on how to plug the gap will come. Trust.

If friends do not ‘get’ what you are experimenting with then go ‘within’ and listen to your inner voice. You do not need other folks worries and fears sparking your own.

Try different things; keep ‘sploring’ and evaluating and hang onto what feels right and if it’s right then it will have an energy all of it’s own.

If you worry about something constantly then the outcome will be the one you most fear.

Worry, like perfectionism, can kill the joy in a moment.

Try not to beat yourself up when things don’t go quite to plan or the outcome is not as expected; you tried and nothing is lost in trying. Stopping for a few minutes to pat yourself on the back for trying is a kind thing to do and worrying about whether to try again will stop you in your tracks.

Having a plan is good (I have a sofa coming for planning purposes) but being prepared to evaluate, adjust and change will be the plan’s life blood.

Every time a worry crosses your mind today, pause and try to adjust your thinking. Changing thoughts will change the outcome and allow room for new energy and magic to flow.

There is a difference between instinct and fear from past hurt that blends together as your ‘gut’, wisdom and hope…always hope….

Instinct guides us to make the right decisions and instantly gives us a good pointer for situations we find ourselves in and the people who cross our path.

The whispers we hear in our heads are different; they are the fears and scars from past hurts that can hold us back and muddy our thinking and actions.

Keeping your feet on the ground, stilling your mind, leaning on your friends (God bless you, you know who you are), putting one foot in front of the other and holding hope in your heart brings positive movement forward.
