poem: Abundance

There are many changes happening in my life, choices I am making. My mind is a constant, swirling sea of thoughts, questions, worries, and ideas for today, next week, next year. I strive to let go and let the process of life unfold as it will, just as I worked in labor to release and let life come.

In truth, I do feel like I am in early labor. [I may be jumping the gun here, as is common with folks, thinking I’m in early labor when I’m in warm up, setting myself up for a shock when the intensity ramps up.] I feel the same awe and overwhelm from the magnitude of what is happening. I have the same shaky confidence issues I had then. I float in and out of trust and dangerously close to fear.

I fear the unknown. I can’t see what lies ahead. I’m not sure what to do or where to go. I fear a need and lack and want for things. I fear being crushed under the weight of reality. As I work to manifest a new life for myself, I affirm my ability to birth life into being on this material plane.

I tell myself over and over….

Open your ears and listen

Open your eyes and see

Open your mind and believe

Open your heart and trust

All I need I have:

    I am awed you are clearing out what is not necessary, and making a clearing for something new. You are loved and supported.

    Leaps of faith can be terrifying. But oh so liberating! Be true to yourself and you won’t ever fall.


  3. My friends, thank you. I am humbled by your support and wisdom. This is not easy, and I am grateful. Thank you, thank you.
