“Take no fricking prisoners! This is about YOU. Your energy. There is nothing or no one you could control or be distracted by right now that is more interesting or important than you!” Was the very thing a respected, ultra feminine, gentle, kick-ass teacher of mine said the other day to me and my fellow female students as we entered into a meditation at the clairvoyant school I attend here in Chicago. ”Yep. That’s right. You are the Big Deal. Get used to it.” I could hear her smiling, even though my eyes were closed.
She definitely got my attention. She dug into any apathy we were experiencing as a group of women as if it were a black mold, festering in a root cellar. Find your passion and take action. Keep moving. Generate heat and cook the moldering organisms up and out of the equation as if your very life depended upon it. Your time is now, and this is the time to shine, was the gist of it.
And even though I’m doing many of the things that I love, and have always wanted to do, in my life these days (I’m pleased to share), I can always use a kick in the ass (pun intended) as much as the next gal.
So here’s the thing. I love writing. I do it daily. I’ve even got a book in a publishing deal/editing process right now. (yay!) But blogging is a thing that can escape me for months. I’m not sure why. I guess we all have that thing that we let slip from time to time. Last week, I had a new client inquiry who stated “I know you’re out of town until November, but I’d really like to talk to you and maybe book an appointment with you when you get back.” Yikes! That’s right, it’s so far into 2013, and so damned long since my last blog entry, it was actually conceivable to her that I might be gone for another seven months. Yep. The last time I gave myself and my colonic practice the luxury of a blog entry was when I was taking a writing sabbatical in Nashville in October of 2012. Life gets hectic.
Well, enough is enough already. I’m always busier than I think I’m going to be. There’s always something else I could be doing that’s more urgent and necessary than hanging out and writing a little something on my website. There’s never a completely open space in time for unfettered inspiration to simply flow through me like an electrical storm driven by a low pressure system pushing down on a gulf stream…or whatever that meteorological magic is that happens. You know what I’m getting at.
So, tonight, here I am. Here we are. It’s already mid April, 2013. Can you believe it? How are you feeling? Time for a cleanse? Is that where you’re at? Or maybe its more of a subtle need….just time to pay more attention to yourself in the broader sense, but somehow caring for your body and it’s infinitely wise rhythms must factor into that equation? Whatever it is that has brought you to take a look at google and, thus, my site, thank you for stopping by and seeing what I’m exploring these days. I’ll tell you, I’m resonating with the “take no prisoners” mindset. I’m holding no one hostage. No one is responsible for my fulfillment but me. Some days I need yoga and lots of sleep. Sometimes a colonic. Sometimes cocktails and dinner at that great new spot on my radar. Sometimes smoothies for breakfast, then burgers for dinner. Sometimes it’s stay up too late and be a wanna-be blogger. It all depends. But what is consistently certain is that there must be joy, dignity, a sense of play and above all, love. I gotta have and do what I love. Why else are we here on this planet in these funny bodies of ours, with all the poop and the pleasure and all…?
It’s a visceral experience we are having here on earth. So listen to your body. If you’re feeling stuck and stagnant, go ahead and get it moving. That may mean more exercise. It may mean writing poetry; believe me, that kind of endeavor moves energy, too. It may also mean moving your internal organs very deliberately. If you’re here on this page, you’re probably sensing that your internal organs need to MOVE. Your spirit may need to make a bold move, too. Maybe moving your guts will kick-start the whole magical shake-up you’re knowing you need, and would love.
Your instincts are always right. Go ahead and give me a call if you’d like to come in for a colonic session. I’m in town until June 8th, 2013, at which time I shall take another month-long sabbatical…
