Simply the Best!
This week it seemed I had no choice but to stop & notice. It felt like the most bliss filled space I've ever been.
You know the feeling you get when you sit in your new car for the first time, taking in the feel and smell of it.
How about when your kids come down the stairs on Christmas morning, eyes alight with anticipation and joy.
Or when your boyfriend of 2 years gets down on one knee and pulls a ring box out of his jacket pocket.
You know; the heart fluttery, love filled, smile on your face, nothing can bring you down feelings.
That's been my week.
More than once this week I found myself doing the "jump around the kitchen with my arms pumping up and down in the air, squealing "yes, yes, yes!" dance.
It didn't seem to start off that way though.
The week began with us making the decision to put our year old puppy to sleep because she had a brain tumour. If you read my blog that day you already know that it didn't turn out to be the grief filled momen I had anticipated, it actually turned into a moment filled with a sense of love and peacefulness.
Later that same evening I was blessed with a house full of Reiki friends as we shared our Reiki stories, new information and ideas, as well as some much needed healing sessions with eachother. The love that I felt through that day and into the evening was indescribable. Like my heart was going to burst open and fill the house with light.
Every moment this week was like that, whether I was shopping at the second hand store, having tea with a friend or spending time with my pastels; the feeling was there, embracing me and making me feel like I was right where I belong.
I experienced a whirlwind of encouragement this week, from students, friends, clients and strangers.
I even had a gentleman call me with regards to a drawing I did for him. It was a gift from his wife. He wanted to tell me how much he loved it, that it meant a lot to him and that he hoped "I take my gift to the moon"!
This was one of those dance around in the kitchen moments for me.
I've learned to breathe these compliments in (thanks to some very wise friends) and so I took this entire week and breathed it right into my heart. Feeling the love and perfection with each and every moment.
And it seemed the more I did this the more confirmation I received from the Universe that I was on the right track. It was like watching a beautiful story unfolding.
I'm hoping this blog inspires those of you who may be having the shittiest week of your life, to keep moving forward, keep moving towards your dreams and goals. Don't stop to look back. Don't worry whether you're doing the right thing or not, if it feels right in your heart then you are exactly where you need to be.
I also needed to write about this week as a reminder to myself when things aren't looking so wonderful, that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. There will always be a moment put in my path that will give me the encouragement I need to keep me going in the right direction.
