Skydiving – floating free

airkix_1530588

 

I got to go skydiving!!! One of the things I planned to do before I die and I got to do it:)

My son gets married next Monday and it was his girlfriends Hen weekend this week. She’d planned indoor skydiving for Sunday and of course I signed up:) I really fancy leaping from a plane and this was a good way to practice. My son sent me a video of someone tumbling all over the place, bouncing off the walls and said that would be me!! I decided that it wouldn’t and I could feel myself tensing as I determined to do it well. That’s when the light bulb dawned, the last time I made that sort of decision about something physical was windsurfing with my 16 year old son. I was so determined to stay upright that I was so tense i spent the whole time falling in, climbing back on the board and falling in again, while Alex sailed easily from one side of the lake to another.

This time I realised that relaxing was the key, being myself, and allowing the wind in the tunnel to do what it was designed to do, support me. Sound familiar? it felt like the perfect metaphor for living life, being ourselves, relaxing and allowing the universe to do what it’s designed to do, support us.

Armed with that thought I just let myself be. I did what I was told, trusted and floated beautifully. It was fantastic and the guy said he was amazed at how well I did, he rarely supported me on my second flight. (Until he grabbed me, whirled me round and spun me to the top of the tunnel and back, that is:) it was like the best sort of fairground ride and I can’t wait till I can do that myself:) )

It was fun doing it and being part of the group and best of all, it reminded me that life flows more easily when you allow it to support you. That it’s natural for that to happen and that all we need to do, is relax and allow ourselves to be supported.

So if you’re finding yourself in a difficult place at the moment, struggling to sort things out and it’s not happening, how would it be to stop the struggle, just for a moment? To take a breath, step back and ask the universe to support you and allow yourself to believe it might be possible. If you released the dreaded how’s and just decided it would happen, I think you’d be amazed at how things fall into place. I know at the most difficult times in my life, when there’s been no way out but trusting, huge changes happened, so fast.

And wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could allow ourselves to do the trusting first, without having to hit rock bottom? I think that’s my intention for this week and here’s the “wouldn’t it be wonderful game for you to join in with. I’ll start you off and then you can join me with the things that are important to you.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could remember that the universe supports me?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could trust it to do what it’s designed to do?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could recognise that my struggles are what throw me off course?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if if I allowed myself to be in the flow rather than sink to rock bottom before I have the energy to come up again?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I recognised that was just an old pattern and probably not even mine in the first place and that it doesn’t fit with who I am now and what the world is in 2015?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could allow myself to fly and feel the universe lifting me up and know that I’m safe…. because that’s the truth, whether I believe it or not:) and I’m open to the possibility I can make it My truth and live my life differently.

And so it is …..

Hug a tree and get life into perspective

IMG_2413IMG_2423IMG_2421

Connecting with trees is a great way to put life in perspective, many of them were here before we were born and will be here long after we leave and for me it reminds me that what worries me today has no place in the bigger picture. Life goes on and all will be well.

I had a great walk yesterday, through a nearby country park which is famed for it’s very old oak trees. legend has it that the tops were lopped off when Lady Jane Grey was beheaded, so that makes them at least 500 years old.

It was freezing with an icy wind blowing, though the sun was warming the trees. I leant against an ancient one and could feel the warmth of the bark and the aliveness of it and it felt very good. My grandparents came here when they were courting, my father came when he was young. I came with my family as a child, catching 2 buses and carrying a picnic basket. We climbed trees and rocks and paddled in the stream and so did my boys when they were young. There’s such a sense of continuity and it feels so good knowing that whatever people were worrying about then, is past and over and soon our worries will be the same.

When we’re deep in our “stuff” sometimes we don’t want to get out of it, we don’t want to see the bigger picture and that’s OK. Sometimes wallowing is what we need to do and we can do that because a part of us always knows that it’s temporary, that everything changes and that it all works out OK in the end, whatever it looks like on the outside. Thank goodness for EFT and our other tools, because we know, when we’ve had enough wallowing we can do something about it!

I know one of my old survival strategies was imagining the absolute worst that could happen and how I’d deal with it, and then knowing that, I could let go and move forward. Knowing about the Law of Attraction, that no longer seems such a great strategy, though it still sneaks in from time to time:) These days I remind myself to focus on what I DO want, rather than what I don’t and I’m gentle with myself when I forget. I think its a bit like training a puppy, you just have to keep reminding yourself when you forget, without making it personal.

What strategies do you use? Do they work for you? I’d love to hear about them. Would life be easier with new ones?

If you’d like to explore new possibilities, why not book a blockbuster session and have a clear out of the old.

And you might like to check out this video from Nick Ortner of the Tapping solution. the 7th World Tapping Summit is coming soon and there will be some great free tapping available for you then and a series of videos even before it’s launched.

Whatever you do, have fun and stay warm:)

Heres’s a tapalong on putting things into prospective:)
