Story Lines

Story Lines can be invaluable when it is time to learn something. But when the teaching is over, the need for the Story Line is over. By letting go and moving away from the story we open up into even more of who we are.

Story Lines of Glass.
Ann-Marie McKelvey

A Mindful Practice for Today!
•Choose the Story Line that has stopped serving you.
•Firmly order your Monkey Mind to stop juicing the Story Line with attention.
•Tell your Inner Critic to walk away from it and find another Story Line that will serve you.
•Watch your Gremlin put the unneeded Story Line on the back parking lot of your mind.
•And now…settle into the aliveness within you…what do you notice?
•Keep me posted! I’m doin’ it with you!

“It’s only in the looking back do we see the straight and narrow.”
Darrell Scott – Crooked Road.

Stop and listen…

Open yourself. The clues are all around us. Let their guidance activate you into the next moment…again and again and again. Let the magic happen!

Part II: Laughing Yourself Into A New Perspective

It’s been close to two hours. Have you done the 30 second laugh? If not, leap into this mind training exercise.

I know…I’m being a bit pushy. Yet this is not a time for an attitude of lassitude. Instead it’s a time to be liberated from a lower state of conscious.

Give yourself this simple, potent gift. Go for it. I am with you grinning wildly!

Laugh out what has been prohibiting you.
•The frustration, confusion, sadness, grief, annoyance, fear, anger, hopelessness…
•The energies you took in that aren’t yours
•The somatic tension, constriction, numbness, tightness

Laugh it out into the Universe. Sense the transformation. Walk into the world with this freshness.

Now what do you notice?!

Guiding Signs ~ Let Yourself Be Found

Road signs direct us while being metaphors for living
YIeld. No U-Turn. Speed Limit 50. Slow Down. Wrong Way. One Way. Merge. Stop.

Midland, Michigan

What about the invisible signs?
The symbols, the whisperings, the sensations?
How do we recognize and amplify them as we live into our day?

To avoid your own personal traffic jam of life:
•Pause. Relax. Open. Recognize and trust what emerges.
•Allow the invisible signs to find you.
•Listen deeply.
•Let yourself be guided into the Mysteries of the Unknown.

Slowly re-entering this morning, I am alive with soft gaze, curiosity, stamina and delight.

Such a moment to be alive.

Deep listening

Listen for the answers you have not yet asked. Live within them. Be penetrated. Be guided. Let them deliver you to your next step.
