We are back from our San Francisco trip, and from seeing the butterflies in Michoacan. It is Spring here in San Miguel: the jacarandas are just starting to bloom. Although chilly at night and in the mornings, midday can reach a temperature of 85 in the sun.
Traveling always makes me think about the life I am living. Where, how, and why I am living the particular life I come back to. After this round of travel, I find myself with a two pronged focus: connecting with the divine and getting fit. For me, they are intimately related.
I find myself with the intention to dust off and fluff up my light body. To make food and exercise choices that will help me shed excess weight; physically, emotionally, spiritually, psychologically.
It’s been through my body that I find my understanding of, and connection with, “God”. It has been through dance, through sensuality, breath and movement in nature that I experience the divine most vividly.
So, this month sees me meditating and doing yoga, walking and hosting the archangels. On the back burner, for the moment, is work, making money, cooking up the next big thing, planning for travel or offering a workshop.
Motherhood is the stove upon which all these burners rest. The idea is that by taking this month and focusing on these two things, I relax into my role as parent, I allow visions of what I want to create to bubble up, I stop willing and pushing to make things happen, instead to allow my destiny to meet me half way.
