Set Our Souls Free…

Life often seems to launch curve balls at us, often leaving us to question why, why now at this time in our lives, why when there is so much already that is on our plates, but our main question is why… why me? We claim to never see these things coming, although if we just quieted our minds, noticed the things around us, we would, as we are all such intelligent beings. Now by this I do not mean we can all see the future and predict what is going to happen to us, but when we still our minds our intuition can guide us. However sometimes this may not be what we want to hear, so we close this off preventing the inevitable, which is that horrid curve ball which is on its way, but we have chosen to close our eyes with the childish hope that if we can’t see it, it won’t see us…

This method of denial that we resort to ends up causing more damage, as when it does see us and hit us, it’s in the face, often causing long-lasting bruising, which in years to come, although the marks have faded, the wounds below the surface are still tender to the touch. Our natural response to this is that we didn’t see this coming, but in fact if we had just kept our eyes open and our minds still, we could have caught that curve ball or better yet have knocked it out the park for a home run, only leaving our hands a little tender from the shock, all which can be easily shaken off.

Our problems are the fact that if we never deal with the curve ball that is already on its way, if we don’t follow our intuition which has all the answers, patiently waiting for us to listen, before we know it there is more than one curve ball headed in our direction and unfortunately, it is impossible to dodge or hit them all, so there will be some very painful body, head, and maybe even a punch to the stomach, hitting us at once, which can in some cases leave irreparable damage to a person, the pain will eventually be overcome; however the scars are so deep they will never fade.

The burdens of lugging this baggage around, can only prevent us from picking up the bat for the next curve ball ahead, it prevents us from keeping our minds still to listen to the answers which we all hold within ourselves. These answers are generally what is best for our higher being or what is necessary to unleash our fullest potential we all have. This potential we all have, gives us the tools, and means to deal with and learn a lesson from the curve ball, it is however fear… the nastiest trait of all can hold us back, it is the fear of the unknown, the fear of leaving our comfort zones, fear of taking that adventure, which leaves us restless.

Afraid to take the next step. for fear we will fall off the edge to our doom instead of taking off and soaring, like the eagles we all are, we allow our wings to be clipped, sometimes it is for the sake of others, only in so doing this we don’t realize how much we are actually missing, the breeze of life as it touches the tips of our fingers and the freedom we have within us all.

Just imagine the stillness that would follow if we just listened to our intuition… It is there, within every one of us, patiently waiting for us to drop off others lost property, awaiting our undivided attention, all to guide us, for when the curve balls are launched. The curve balls hold the lesson to be learnt, the shock to the system, to strike us out, out of the rut, whether it’s a smack in the face to wake us up, to tell us to open our eyes, and holds the realization that what we are doing is not good for our higher selves, if we don’t listen to our intuition, we will forever be unable to soar, as we are holding ourselves down just preventing the inevitable, when we could be enjoying the breeze of life ahead of us…

Mystery of Lifes Milestones

While I wasn’t looking, life just happened to me. I am 26 years old, married, have two children with another on the way, I run a business with my husband and all this in a matter of 5 years. What started off with a bit of lust, lust for something new, lust for love, lust for passion, turned into a babies, marriage and business. Sometimes I wonder if my life has been on fast forward. My two sons are 4 and 2 years old and the third will be born in late December, early January. I still can’t believe that while my eyes were closed and I was planning my life, life happened to me.

Being only 26 and what has been an interesting, fun, exciting journey has also been one of frustration, tears and sometimes a nagging loneliness. This is because so many of my friends that I grew up with and shared a lot of life’s “milestones” with, are all in very different places and obviously different journeys in life, which is to be expected of course, but can be a lonely process for me, as my life is now filled with many responsibilities that are very difficult to explain to my closest and dearest friends. I have found myself many times, sitting with people who are all my seniors, discussing life and where we all are in our lives, as much as I have received useful, tips, advise, and have been able to share my feelings and experiences with them, grateful that they have understood exactly where I am coming from. As much as I have appreciated all the wisdom shared, It doesn’t stop that feeling of being a baby taking its first steps, as my seniors have already been there and done that.

I get that we all progress at different paces, but Oh, I hope someday I will be understood by my peers, that they will understand that all the venting I shared with them was because there where times that where so tough, I was looking for that shoulder to cry on, that shoulder to tell me no matter what happens Lis, no matter what choice you make, I will never judge you, I will stand by you, I will accept you with all your faults, and whether you make a bad choice or a good choice you have my support, and a shoulder to cry on. That they will understand the joys as well as the massive responsibilities of having a child, a child that looks back at them, and they can see all of the achievements in their children’s eyes, and wonder what the hell took me so long, why was I scared, and I can then be there for them in return through all the good as well as the bad.

 They will understand when they have made that commitment to the man or woman in their lives, that there is a change, a change that cannot be explained, but that with all the ups there will be downs and that they will want to fight harder to make this relationship work. They will understand what I meant when I said I cannot understand why the world is so self-absorbed with appearance, and the endless list of wanting to have more when you already have everything you need and that we are all so busy competing with everyone else, whether it’s comparing your relationship to someone elses less than perfect one (in your eyes), or comparing children, and houses, cars, clothes and all the other material things that every one of us allow to take over our lives, how we lose sight of who and what we are. Whether their experiences are similar or not there will be times where even though we are all so different, and whether its one who is stronger, harder, more loving, forgiving, more compassionate, no matter what it is there will be a silent understanding.

I know that this is all to be expected in life and is more than likely another one of life’s milestones that each one of us have to experience and I am grateful that the universe has put what seems like a mountain to overcome in my path, even if it is a tough journey, it is my journey of self discovery. I am learning new things about myself everyday, in between the hustle and bustle of daily activities, I still time find time to reflect on the journey I have already taken and realise that no matter how frustrating it has been as times that there have been many great times that I have cherished and keep close to my heart.

The next life milestones await us all! It happens when we aren’t looking…
