Do you find yourself slipping into feelings of confusion or lack of confidence lately? If so, you are not alone. As we go through the process of adjusting from being quite competent (for the most part) at functioning as caterpillars, to being back at the newbie stage as recently evolved butterflies, it can feel a little disorienting. One of my soul friends and colleagues – Ed Snyder (Salus North) – shared this quote with me from Louise Hay and I thought I’d share it with all of you…
“When a little child is learning to walk or talk, we encourage him and praise him for every tiny improvement he makes. The child beams and eagerly tries to do better. Is this the way you encourage yourself when you are learning something new? Or do you make it harder to learn because you tell yourself that you are stupid or clumsy or a ‘failure’?”
I have been repeatedly getting the intuitive message to come at life from the point of view of the enlightened child. By seeing the world with fresh, innocent eyes that see the world as a safe and magical place, we are able to go through this new learning phase with delight instead of fear and struggle. What we belief is what we create, which means the world then becomes safe and magical for us. So how do we start believing this?
I asked for some guidance on the best way to navigate this experience and opened to a message from my new book, Mother Earth Musings: Nature-Inspired Guidance for Your Day. Here is what was shared…
Morning Message Twenty- Six
I see a red squirrel and a groundhog in a yard. The red squirrel is on the fence and the groundhog is digging a hole. Each is doing their own thing with no concern for each other.
Red makes me think of the first chakra and the foundations we rest on. Squirrels are also gatherers. They are always setting things aside to provide for their future. The ground-hog is creating a burrow. This makes me think of having a safe haven or place to rest in.
Today, I will rediscover my inner home. I will fill it with the love and the nourishment I need to have with me always. I will rest within and be at peace.
I pray it is so and so it is…
How perfect that a message about the first chakra was offered! I do feel we are on the ground floor, building the new launching pad for our life with wings. As we build it, this message reminds me to remember that our inner home is eternal and unchanging. Resting in that truth allows us to be more comfortable while our foundations get put in.
Another message from the vision is to keep focused on what is in front of us to do and to not worry what others around us are choosing. What we create for ourselves needs to be in alignment for who we are. It wouldn’t be appropriate for the ground-hog to be burying acorns or building a nest in a tree. This is a reminder not to worry if you seem to be doing things differently than others who share your environment. Just keep listening to your own heart, praising yourself for each tentative step you take, and trusting that soon you will be flying!
Sending you much love!
