Today I’m reflecting on two more of Kat McNally’s August Moon prompts. I’m doing them in reverse order of what she suggested because they fit better that way for me.
Today I invite you to spell out the range of things you are and would like to be. How could you cultivate a life that reflects all that you truly are?
What a fun prompt!
I set out each day to cultivate and receive magic, to gather the things that inspire me, and surround myself with beauty.
I’m a spiritual path walker and practitioner: I read the Akashic Records, I channel a council of angelic beings; I teach about the everyday sacred.
I’m an alternative energy practitioner: I’m a flower essence practitioner and an aromatherapist.
I’m an artist: I create talismans; jewelry; I love working with paper – bookbinding, folding, collaging; I create zines; write poetry; I create all manner of bibelots.
I love all these things and they’re all part of the work I do. So in that sense I’m very blessed to have already cultivated a life that reflects me.
But I do want more. Not just that I want to write books and illustrate books and be wildly successful. I most certainly do want that. But I also want to biggify what I already do. To find more of my tribe. I want to be at my best edge moving into expansion with ease and grace and joy. Remembering the real reason I’m here is to play with the yes parts and to be me full-out.
Part of the fun of visioning being me full-out is imagining how my bigger life will look like and making sure to incorporate what I want into that vision. And so Kat’s other prompt feels like a perfect fit here.
If the universe was prepared to send someone to help, who would you ask for?
I would love what I’m delighting in calling a life smoother. A personal assistant who can gracefully handle all the things that are hard for me. Because I want to spend my time being me, doing what brings me joy.
I’m really loving the idea of having someone available to handle a move – to take care of setting up my gloriously wonderful, not-yet-manifested-but-no-doubt-on-its-way new home. Someone to coordinate all the decorating details, the furniture deliveries, the work crew issues, all the things that make me want to cry just thinking about them. How fun would it be to simply hand them over to a life smoother, who would delight in doing them because it’s their skill set and I’d be such a wonderful employer to work for.
And while all the magic of creating my perfect-for-me utterly delightful space was happening around me, I could be working in my studio and/or writing another book without interruption. Without needing to be social when I didn’t feel like it, or interacting with folks when I was feeling most in need of managing my own energy carefully, or needlessly fretting over how things will get coordinated.
Yes, I want a life smoother. Just imagining one makes me smile inside and I can feel the tension relax away. Part of my bigger life means having the right tools to manage it so it feels like the blessing it is, not an unwelcome burden. And so a life smoother is definitely part of my vision. Bring it on universe!
Now tell me about you. Are you cultivating your perfect-fit life? Want to be something you’re not yet expressing? Who would you love to have the universe send? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
