Quest: Beyond the 28 Days

"I am a hole in a flute that the Christ´s breath moves through, listen to this music!". (Hafiz)
Inviting acceptance into my life, taking time to be still and just listen, move my body, connect with others and do the things I really enjoy...that makes for good music and rythm for me.
And TOGETHER my friends, we are an ORCHESTRA!
(To celebrate Nikolaus I am giving away 3 inspiration card mobiles...just leave a comment and you´ll be in the draw on the 6th of December.)

It´s been a wonderful, sometimes painful, 28 days. I am so grateful for ALL that I´ve learned. Thankyou for your comments, especially on the rough days. It´s been a pleasure getting to know you all.

Day 25

Day 24

I have been looking at some photos of myself and I have realised something. My weight has been up and down, give or take 10kilos...but I have always felt dreadful about my body. I see photos where I looked fabulous but felt horrible. WHY???

Day 23

I have been crying cleansing tears today...all this body stuff is really getting to me.

Day 22

Body image is a big issue for me. I can´t remember a time when it wasn´t. I don´t understand why and I hope this week gives me some answers. I hate my stomach area but otherwise I am generally happy with my figure and my clothes and I leave the house feeling great then I pass a shop window and see my reflection and my heart is in my shoes because how I feel inside doesn´t match what I see. I suffer.

Day 21

An ABUNDANT life : lots of time to love, read, sew, talk, relax.

: good, healthy food, clean water, air and light.

: color, comfort, acceptance.

Day 20

I put on some colorful clothes and smiled at everyone I passed today. Some people thought I was crazy, some smiled back openly and others reluctantly. I wanted to be like a butterfly - here one moment, gone the next leaving positive energy behind.

Day 19

Today...I have noticed how little time some people seem to have. I had 2 visitors. One didn´t even have time to sit down for a chat because she had errands to run and the other stayed for a while but she wasn´t really here because her cell phone rang every few minutes and when she wasn´t talking on the phone, she was telling me about all the things she had to do after her visit. Living in the moment, staying focused on what you´re doing isn´t always easy but we can learn it. I try to give my attention to the people I am with, listen to them without judging. The moment is important because, as I saw today, sometimes that´s all we get.
Ok, now to the dying part of today´s exercises. I have been putting off a few things to do with my death because I am supersticious and don´t want to invite death into my life. But I do see the practical side so I will write a testament and get some other things in order.
I have no regrets, no unfinished business, I am not afraid of dying, I just don´t want to stop living this life. The quote on my second collage is on a card I received from the beautiful Liz. It´s by Brian Andreas and it sums up the way I feel about life.

Day 11

Today´s exercises were not easy...I saw an interesting interview with Byron Katie some time ago and it reallygot me thinking about relationships. I am ready to take responsibility for my relationship to my Mother and Father and my Brother. Those relationships have been plagueing me for as long as I can remember, I am ready to move past that. I am loved and lovable, yes I am!

Day 8

When I read the introduction I thought a lot of emotions would be coming to the surface but they aren´t. Last year was a big one with my divorce going through and the children and I having to move out of our seems that I worked through my emotions in the process of sorting through our belongings, saying goodbye to our old life and dreams of staying in that house always and starting over in new surroundings. I cried a lot of tears and let it all out and now I recognise a shift that I wasn´t really aware of until now - I feel no bitterness, no regrets, no wish to complain about or relive anything in my past. The past has led me to this day.

Day 7

I have really enjoyed this week of letting "AIR" into my life. Taking the time every day to clear my head and my home, to make collages and connect with you all has increased my energy 100%. I thought about my soul mission all day yesterday and while falling asleep last night and I had no idea...while going about my business this morning and recognising how I do things and what I am appreciated for, it came to me loud and clear like someone was talking in my ear.
