I had lots of titles in my head when I woke up this morning…. Letting Go, Starting Over. Then, Not Getting Stuck. When I sat down to write, my arm went off (another blog, some other time), and I knew I had not yet gotten to the Essence. So I wandered off, made a cup of green tea, sat back down. And there it was – Balancing Lightly in my mind!
Loving exactly where we are / where I am, and not holding on to any of it. Excited about the future, and letting it arrive as it will. Playing with the past, re-writing that history, looking back from many different angles. Letting go of those victim emotions – and those ‘I did it all myself’ emotions.
One helpful image, from the exercise world – don’t lock your knees. Always keep them bent and flexible. The same with your mind, and what you’re absolutely sure of. My 98% guidelines, rather than 100% rules, help me get loose and relaxed.
Another favorite technique for me is opening my heart, pouring out loving energy to the world. And standing in that compassionate space myself, feeling it pour over me as well as you.
Then it’s easy to balance lightly. Balancing lightly on the earth itself, doing what I can to support Her as She heals. Balancing lightly in my relationships, watching the cycles ebb and flow. Balancing lightly, day to day, sharing some of the day with others, holding space for myself.
One of my favorite sayings: Why can angels and fairies fly? Because they take themselves lightly….. And, naturally, both are always well balanced!
