SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 241: Relating

IMG_2775

Do I ever really see you for who you are, without any of my own filters, stories, judgements, hopes, wishes, comparisons, or desires? Is it even possible?

Relating includes as many of these things as I allow, and even more: the things I am unaware of, the things I am blind to, or forgetting in the moment, the things I just can’t help but include as me.

But I guess that’s the reality of who I am: me plus the filters, stories, judgements, hopes, wishes, comparisons and desires. And I am in relationship to you, with all of your filters, stories, judgements, hopes, wishes, comparisons, and desires.

Let’s be gentle with ourselves and each other. There’s a lot of stuff between us.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 239: Keep on Moving

IMG_2762

Movement is the key for me. It helps me to get unstuck when I am stuck in my stories. It gives me joy when I dance. It lessens my pain – in my back, in my heart, in my mind. It is what propels me to the next stage in my growth.

People speak of being rather than doing, to remember to allow what is happening to us to just be present, rather than feel the need to push through it, or do something about it. When I speak of movement, this is also what I’m referring to: the ability to move through my feelings, by allowing them to be there. Movement may sound like “doing”, but I’m referring instead to the opposite of stagnation and resistance. Instead of fighting what life brings me, I will keep on moving, feeling, and allowing (being).

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 238: Creativity

IMG_2754

My medicine.
My support.
My reason for being.
My lifeline.

An alizarin crimson wash spread over paper.

A shape created by my body, while dancing, filling the space surrounding it in a completely new way.

New ideas to use in my business.

Trying new things, or old things in new ways.

Conscious creation of my relationships.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 237: Go With The Flow

IMG_2727

Resistance only makes the thing I am resisting stronger, so it is in my interest to go with the flow. Sometimes I forget this, or my stories kick in to keep me “safe”, stuck, and right.

Allow, allow, allow, and let go. In doing so, my experience will likely be much less of a struggle, and the possibilities to learn more about myself become greater. If I choose to be stubborn and fight against what is actually happening to me, I am just reinforcing the stories and patterns that already exist.

Having curiosity about what is actually happening gives me the power to go with the flow.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 236: Try New Things

IMG_2707

I have heard that the happiest, most satisfied people, are those who continually try new things. I have tried many new things in the past year, and they have all added so much depth and value to my experience of life. Most recently, I have been rehearsing with a group of interdisciplinary artists to perform in a dance opera in 2016, and we will be performing a piece, in costume, this week.

While having a sense of rhythm and routine in my days provides a sense of safety and flow, adding that one new thing brings excitement, curiosity, and interest.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 235: Interested

IMG_2653

Currently, my interest in all things has hit a low point. I’m distracted, I’m off, I’m not caring about much. This makes no sense. Curiosity is my special sauce, and I can’t find it right now. My superhero is in disguise. I am curious about this though – why is this happening now?
