Today’s prompt in Kat McNally’s Reverb15 is from Lisa Sadikman. She writes:
You wake up and the light through the window seems different, the air carries a chill or maybe a hint of warmer days.
What has changed? You? The world?
It can be a change that happened this past year or one you’re looking toward in the time ahead. It can be a broad sweep obvious to all or a more subtle shift that only you know about.
Tell us about transformation.
I think all the transformation I’ve experienced this year has been subtle and nuanced; much more internally experienced than externally visible. I feel more refined. More purely me. Less likely to be pulled in by things that don’t really interest me. And although I’ve honored my intuition and followed my heart for years now, this year I feel like I’ve opened that even more fully.
A couple of days ago I had a dream, of the nocturnal variety, in which the top of my head was open. Someone was shining a flashlight into my crown and as a result, being lit from within, you could see my insides were covered in mysterious writings. I was astonished that I hadn’t known this before. Was it new? Had it always been there? And then I suddenly understood, as is the way in dreams, that my job was to breath and exhale this out into the world, otherwise it would always remain hidden within.
I awoke from the dream with lots to think about, but one of the things I realized clearly was that this year, 2015, has been a year of the in-breath for me. And I suspect next year will call me into the out-breath. I look forward to seeing what that transformation looks like.
