There comes a time in your life where you realize that you are no longer constantly seeking: Seeking guidance, seeking answers, seeking enlightenment. It’s a moment that I would imagine, comes later in life…Late enough in your life where you have had the time and opportunity to experience love, grief, bliss, judgment, loss.
When the awareness that you are no longer seeking dawns on you, you begin to understand that you do indeed have answers. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have all of the answers, it most certainly doesn’t mean that there’s nothing left to learn; it means that you can slow down and enjoy life more.
Rest…Take a break from constantly seeking solutions and answers. There is less “Why?” and more “I understand.”
The cessation of constant seeking is a time of self realization. Speaking from personal experience, (which truly, is the only place from which anyone is able to speak) no longer being in seek mode means that I know Who I am. I have a much deeper understanding of why I am here. That’s a huge relief. I want to be very clear when I say that this is not the end of the journey, not by a long shot. It is another level of awareness; a place of being comfortable with Me.
I am no longer growing up; I am expanding my awareness and understanding of everything and everyone around me.
I am no longer just getting older; I am becoming wiser and more confident in my own innate knowledge of life, myself and the world.
I make the choice to be healthy. I am fully conscious of all of the choices I make and how they affect my health: Physically, emotionally and mentally. I say No when I want to say No, Yes when I want to say Yes.
I put myself first. This is extraordinarily important because 1. It is loving yourself, and this is something that we all need to do. And 2. If you can’t do right by and for yourself, no one else can or will.
I choose to be wealthy. I choose abundance. I am old enough and have done enough work on myself to know that I am worthy of wealth and abundance. I am not speaking of just monetary wealth, I am talking about abundance in all areas of my life. Interestingly, as we do the work on ourselves, and we learn to love and trust our inner guidance, there comes a time when we realize that some of our ideas about wealth are not as important as they once were. Having material things is not as important as an abundance of good health, family, love, peace, satisfying work, just to name a few things. Witnessing a beautiful sunset is abundance to me. I will never grow tired of the beauty that is all around us. I have a deeper appreciation for friends; ones that I have known for most of my life, and new friends who know me just as I am now, without my old baggage and labels.
There is freedom is being wild and a wildness in being free.
Wild? No one calls me wild. Yet at times, I feel so unconstrained by the trappings of the things of my youth. I am more comfortable now going out without any makeup, or in my yoga clothes. It’s not a big deal, but at the same time, I would have thought twice about it just 3 or 4 years ago, being much more concerned about what others would think about me. If someone is judging you, it’s because there is something within them that is being triggered. The same goes for judging others: If you find yourself doing it, look within at what aspect of yourself is being triggered.
Grow into who you are, enjoy the ride, and acknowledge your own wisdom, wildness and the abundance that is in your life.
I choose to be healthy, wealthy, wild and wise. Join me?
