What does the term ‘shape shifting’ bring to mind for you? Do you think of someone who changes form from human to animal and back again, like in the movies and novels? Is it a really cool super power that you wish you could have? I used to consider shape shifting as something out of my current reality. Then life experiences led to my changing my perspective. To me, shape shifting is something that we all do – our weight shifts, our emotions shift, our awareness shifts – all on a day to day basis. We are never the same from moment to moment, as even on a cellular level we are always changing and shifting. Lately I have been doing some soul searching about some of the choices that I made this year. I really, really, really thought that we would be in a new house for Christmas. This reality, that has not yet come to pass, consumed so much of my energy that I stopped living in the now. The animals have always taught me about living in the present moment, yet I had temporarily forgotten all their wisdom. Eventually things got so uncomfortable that I had to shape shift back to the present moment as that is all that we ever have. I then started to create a new vision for myself. What was that vision? I realised that the attractive thing about the future I was dreaming of were the experiences that I desired to have. So if the future was not going to go the way I had thought, it was time to look at what adventures/ experiences I could have in the present moment. I have said for some time that I wished to start horse-back riding again. Whilst it will not be the same without my beloved Doll, I always enjoyed my vision of the world from horse back. For me, riding and being around the horses always put life into perspective. I am so grateful for my furred and feathered family. They help to keep me grounded in challenging times. My vision is to see what fun adventures I can have with them here and now.
What do you want to do in 2024? Do you see fun and adventure in your future? Everything has to start as a dream. My current practice is to envisage and feel into what I would like to experience now and in the future, instead of getting attached to the form of how that future will look. When I am not attached to the form, greater things can show up for me. If you want to join form like minded people to create some fun adventures for yourself in 2024, you might like to join my Vision Board Workshop on the 13th of January 2024. It will be held in person and online. This is a vision board workshop with a difference as we are focussing on envisaging life with animals – they may be animals currently in your life, that you would like to have, or maybe you would like to have animals show up in your daily life in various ways. There is power when we come together as a group to combine our creative efforts and envisaging. To book and pay, go to my website.
Wishing you a joyful Christmas and many fun adventures in 2024.
