Can you find yourself on the other side of the globe?

This week as I travelled to the other side of the globe, I felt like I had lost myself.

Have you found yourself on the other side of the globe?

Have you found yourself on the other side of the globe?

After my first day of work over here, I went into doubt.  I asked myself these questions:

  • Did I really know what I was doing?
  • Did I have enough activities?
  • Would my customers be disappointed?
  • Should I really be doing this?
  • Should I be home, safe and sound?
Who am I?

Who am I?

After an evening of working hard, followed by a sleepless night.  I found the answer.

My answer was:

  • Trust in me.
  • I have all the skills I need.
  • I know that I have been doing this for a long time.
  • I have been given this opportunity for a reason.
Trust yourself

Trust yourself

Travelling overseas to the Middle East is part of my spiritual journey, I don’t have all the answers about what the whole of my journey means, just yet.  What I do know, is that sometimes we are given journeys to develop.  Develop things like trust, knowing, and believing.  Journeys to find yourself.

I have found myself, or more of myself on the other side of the globe.

Are you finding yourself, anywhere you are?

See you on the path of self discovery, Tracy xx

Have you explored Wonderland?

Have you tried letting go of expectations? Have you explored Wonderland?

Have you explored Wonderland?

Have you explored Wonderland?

For someone who is planned and organised, having expectations of outcomes, results and where you can end up, are expected.

This is where the problem lies, in your mind becuase you have already got the thing or result before you have even lived it. You know what your going to eat, what you going to do and how you will do it.  So when any of those things don’t eventuate, all you end up with is disappointment.

Disappointment

Disappointment

For the last 5 weeks, my life has been in the hands of other people to organise and arrange.  Now initially this was not my choice and later it became my choice.

It has meant that I have headed overseas at the last minute.  It has meant that I travelled with my husband throughout outback Australia not having planned or thought about, where we would go or what we would do.  I left it all up to him.

The great thing about not having any expectations, means there is no disappointment. You have nothing to compare the outcome or result with and you end up having an amazing time full of wonder and excitement.

The other great thing is, it is very freeing.  Freeing of the constraints I used to put on my life.

Now I still like to organise and plan but just letting go and allowing what ever door to open and whatever happens to happen, is like exploring Wonderland.

Open door

I ask you to give it a go, let go and see what is possible in Wonderland where there aren’t expectations, just surprises.

Are you scared of scarcity?

Scarcity means we don’t have enough, money, food, water or love.

Are you scared of scarcity?

Are you scared of scarcity?

Are you scared of scarcity?

What I have found travelling through outback Australia is that the indigenous cultures, dealt with scarcity in ways that meant they were never in scarcity.

So how did they do that?

Abundance

Abundance

They honoured the resources that were in abundance or in scarce supply.  They only ever used as much as they needed, no more.  They knew that in abundant times, not to take all that was there, so as to provide opportunities for regrowth for the next season or the next year, or for those that came after.

We in the city have become complacent with our resources.  We have an abundance of water, food, for some money and others love.  When we don’t honour those resources we have and when they become scarce we can become scared.  What will we do?

Honouring and respecting all your resources

Honouring and respecting all your resources

My answer is this, live with honour for all that you have, all the resources in your life, such as water, food, money and love.  Honour them, use them for what you need, prepare for times of scarcity when abundance abounds.

When we honour and respect our resources we can live comfortably in times of scarcity and in times of abundance.  A lesson well worth learning.

With honour and respect Tracy xx

Who is the ruler of the desert?

We are currently travelling through Central Australia. It is hot and dry and the sun bakes the land.  I have asked myself the question, who is the ruler of the desert?

Desert ruler?

Desert ruler?

What I have found is that the element of water, the feminine influence is in control. She is the giver of life.  She has been here thousands of years ago and she is still here now.  We must remember to honour her and give her the respect she deserves because she is the creator of life in the desert.

In desert where the sun shines and the masculine influence is predominant, it is still controlled by the feminine. Tribal cultures have always known this, we in the city are oblivious to this.  Our water is on tap, if it is hot, we go inside and turn our air conditioners on.  If we are hungry we go to the supermarket to buy our food.  Everything is convenient, we do not have to think about the balance in nature.

The real desert ruler

So how does that relate to us?  To live a balanced life we can be predominantly masculine in the way we live ours lives, driven and focused but we must temper that respectfully and honourably with our feminine side, our giver of life.

Learning a new respect and balanced way of life.
