smoke from fire
art found here.
I disappeared for awhile.
One reason is that, in preparing for hosting the birthday party last week, I had to move all my piles of clutter that I had been working my way through in each room (and feeling like I was making progress!), to my bedroom so it would all be out of sight of the party guests.
Once I saw all that clutter in one place, I felt like I couldn't breathe, like I needed air!
The other reason is that also on that day, Iris's birthday, my copy of Soul Coaching finally arrived. So, now I could read the chapters for myself instead of just gathering my information and inspiration from everyone's blogs. What? You want me to turn off my computer and read a book??
So I stepped into the deep waters of denial for a of couple days.
Then, yesterday, I was finally ready to go back to my lurking ways and I got caught up with everyone's blogs. I was especially encouraged by PlanetShannon's vlog, and the way she celebrated with such humor that we are soul coaching even when we skip some of the homework! Thank you all.
Today is Day 18, Day 4 of Fire.

Today I am present. I am here now.
here on earth...
...i am still working through the clutter.
i took this picture friday. and when i had cleared enough stuff that i could actually see the floor, my body began to move and stretch in the space.
slowly, steadily, i am making mental and physical space in my life.
i spent this morning making cookies with the girls.
i thanked them for such a lovely time together and tried to explain how much more relaxed and available i am to create when there is a clear work space!
i still haven't cracked the book or written in my journal, but i carry them with me from room to room, as a way to carry the support and encouragement i have received from this group with me, too.
thank you all.
here is a wise post on grounding by my friend hecate. enjoy.
