“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello” – Paulo Coehlo.
In just a few weeks (on Remembrance Day, the 11th of the 11th) we’ll be saying goodbye to our home of 26 years, and “Hello new life” as we start afresh and continue life’s adventure in our home on wheels. As I mentioned in my last post, there’s a lot of mixed emotions, but mostly there’s a sense of anticipation for what’s to come.
It’s a little bit like when I saw the preview of one of my articles a month before before the actual magazine came out.
This is Shark Bay and that’s Doug walking the boardwalk at Bluff Lookout. I took the photo almost a year ago, yet in a way it feels like yesterday. It’s like an illusion, yet the anticipation of reading my newest article in Caravan World Magazine brought it all back. But I didn’t know how the finished story would look.
That’s how I feel about the journey we’re on and the unknown future we’re heading towards. Yet we’re all in the same boat for we’re all creators, imagining and manifesting our future with every thought, word and action.
The bricks and mortar of Love
Just like the house we’re leaving behind, sometimes photos and memories are all we have. For me, they’re in these stories and, at the moment, in every room, and everywhere I look.
It’s amazing how much of ourselves we put into a home, and how much we accumulate over the years, especially when raising a family. I think most of us can relate to the amount of stuff that builds up and how good it feels to have a clean up and clear out every now and then.
The task of decluttering, of stripping things back, deciding what to keep, what to give away and what to discard has been exhausting yet liberating. I can feel old patterns fading away and the potential of new ones on the horizon. It’s becoming more about feeling and being in a state of flow, a state of now and a state of love.
Love is key. It’s not in the bricks and mortar but in what we create and the energy and our frequency. Once everything is emptied from inside our house it’s going to be a blank canvas again, ready for the new owners to create their version of home.
It reminds me of some words I heard recently about love and the world we live in.
“Every thought, every bit of love you have through your days is adding to the creation of a beautiful New Earth. Every single feeling or thought of love or abundance or gratitude or appreciation is adding bricks and mortar of love to New Earth. Look out and up and create”. Pam Gregory
Taking Steps Every Day
The future is invisible, waiting for us to act, it’s a time we’ve yet to create. We’re taking steps every day, some days they’re little steps and other days they’re big ones. I believe we all have a responsibility to ensure the future world we’re creating is one of unity, love and collaboration.
In the coming week we’ll be helping our son move out to his own apartment. Once again the stars aligned to help make it come about. Everything feels divinely timed and like it’s all happening as it should and I’m so grateful.
Then the rain came
On Thursday 13 October the rains came, just as we were scheduled to return to Halls Haven for our last long weekend of work. The intensity and deluge came quickly. Before we knew it we were driving on roads with creeks bursting their banks and rising water all around us. It was a harrowing four hour trip that felt more like 14.
And then the rain subsided and for a few days the sun shone, as it does in Spring. But this season has been one like no other. Like most things these days, life is far from normal and now we’re in the midst of another “rain event.” That’s how the media report what’s happening, which I find interesting because the very definition of “event” is something that’s staged.
Is this global warming, climate change or climate engineering? Whatever is causing this rain there’s close to 20 rivers currently under major flood warnings and it looks as though the eastern part of Australia is in for one of its wettest spring and summers ever.
Whatever the Weather
One thing is for certain, NOTHING is certain. But what can we do when everything around us seems out of our control?
We can control our reaction to all that’s happening, be aware but not buy into fear.
We can live our days in the present, not in worry but in presence and in alignment with our values.
We can prepare, plan, help others, friends, family and strangers, in times of crisis.
We can follow our heart and our instincts and discern our own path.
Our thoughts and our actions are all connected to this amazing vibration we’re living in.
I’m curious. What’s it like in your part of the world? Is the weather stranger than usual? Have you noticed a change in your seasons?
I have a feeling that here in Australia we’re in for a wild ride. However, despite it all, it’s an amazing, incredible, beautiful time to be alive.
The Earth is healing. I do believe that. And it responds to us. Imagine if, somehow, all the people of the world came together in love and intent to heal the Earth. We are so powerful and we don’t even realise it. With every breath that holds a vibration of love and gratitude for Life, we heal ourselves, we heal our Earth.
I hold faith for everyone going through their own personal shift in consciousness. And I trust and surrender to the force of love that will see us through these changing times.
Sending love and peace always ❤️
