Recalling a declaration from “my future self” on July 25, 2015

img_4718

Working on my graphic novel, I pull out research and reference materials from my files and come across a journal entry from July 25, 2015 created during Peter Breeze’s Be a Star workshop.  This is truly why I keep everything for what an incredible reminder to myself that I am fulfilling my dream by whatever means necessary.

Dear me,

You now stand fully naked, fully present, fully you.  Gone are the shackles that pulled you downwards into self-doubting, crippling anxiety.  No longer do you hesitate before expressing.  But most importantly, no longer do you collapse in shame and doubt after you expressed yourself.  

Speaking your truth used to cause you to feel like you were choking on amniotic fluid.  Felt like it came at a price.  

Now you can breathe in and breathe out with open mouth, open nostrils, open sinuses, open throat, open heart, open eyes, open mind without fear.  

You release your truth, your art, your work onto and into the world and receive back the conversations/communications with an open and fearless heart- a heart that is ready to dialogue.  

Your work used to require boundaries.  Your life used to comprise of self-imposed boundaries to protect your heart from rejection and loss.  But now you are boundless.  And so the work you have built on awakening creative expression in others- a gift you truly were born with and have worked so tirelessly to deliver- takes on a new level on a global scale.  You are not in need of accolades.  You are simply expressing, thereby allowing others to feel the same freedom.  It need no longer be frontline work (in person), it is a new principle and way of living.  

Full presence.  

You have taken all the heartache, all the joy, all the blood and guts of life and built a mission and vision that has created true abundance.  

You will never be anxiety-free and you will never not have heart-shattering challenges, but you now have a giant delicious toolbox with which to meet those challenges and easily process, die into them and rebirth from them.  You are truly living with ease.  

All is as it should be.  

Congratulations.  

Love, me 

Thank you, Peter.

Dear future me… Empowering exercise designed by @peterbreeze

I was so honored to take part in a taste-test workshop last Saturday designed and facilitated by Peter Breeze (co-facilitated by Odin in Germany. Participants included Kany, Annalise and Mariel).

Very special day! I’ve been developing a workshop for over a year and today I finally shared my ideas and exercises with these special people. The workshop is designed to help you get in touch with your dreams, bring them to the surface and through a series of exercises explore what it feels like when your dreams come true! I was nervous to share this vision but once we started everything flowed so naturally. It felt right. Very powerful. Today is day one of a brand new adventure!!! I am so excited!! – Peter Breeze

It was one of the most powerful and uplifting workshops I’ve ever attended– a beautiful combination of exercises, take-away tools, spiritual guidance and humor.

Stay tuned for Peter’s full workshop offering!  A “can’t miss” opportunity!

During the workshop, I wrote the following letter to my future self.  A testimonial from the soul, as Odin calls it.  With Peter’s powerful guidance and exercises, I was able to speak from an empowered self.  I felt safe and ready.  Truly liberating.

Recall: Dear Me (write a letter to your younger self)

“Dear me…” Write a letter to your younger self.

Pic 2

What would you write to younger you today?

There is so much I want to write to that little anxious girl.  I haven’t written my letter yet, but it will come.  For now, I give that little girl a knowing nod and whisper- you are perfect as you are.

We have outgrown our container and are pushing up against limiting beliefs and our small, fear-based thought processes. The inner child is wounded and wants to be healed. But we must be disciplined and reward only a clear committed intention and not a whiny tantrum. Watch your reactions, as they can be explosive this month. Take a deep breath and think before you speak and act especially when you feel agitated, impatient or victimized. Remember to take responsibility for what is showing up in your life at this time. Step up to the challenge and trust spirit to take care of whatever you cannot see your way through.

There is tremendous opportunity this month to restructure your life based on healing your own inner child and adolescence and allowing for a new alignment of the masculine and feminine both for you personally and for the greater planetary community. The end result will be more personal power, a greater sense of freedom to live your life the way you want, and a deeper experience of self-love and confidence. There has never been a better time than now to move into a place of more trust in spirit and a deep inner knowing that all is as it should be. So embrace your growing pains and enjoy the ride. – Lena Stevens, The Power Path July 2015 Monthly Forecast

Suggestion:

Mail the finished letter to yourself.  Once you receive it back, keep it sealed until the day you really need it- you’ll know when.  It’s a wonderful therapeutic art exercise!
