New Way

Today, I’m testing out a new way to send updates from the trail. I’m experimenting with integrating my blog with my MailChimp service.

There’s a lot to talk about,  especially in the realm of energy shifting! When I get scared, like I am now trying out something new, I feel bad! My head hurts, I want to sleep, and feel nauseous too!

“Run away! Stop! Take a break!” says my fear.

“Keep taking steps! You’ll be ok!” says my courage.

Here goes!

Today, I visited a favorite spot on the Appalachian Trail -Spy Rock, Virginia. It sports a 360 degree view atop a 40′ boulder scramble. I’ve had many a visit here in the past six summers when I worked in this section as a ridgerunner. This time I came as a day-hiker with no mission to educate anyone.

I couldn’t pass up the chance to remove a few firerings to preserve the untrammeled appearance of the place, but that was it.

Beauty, space, and freedom to move – that’s what the place evokes! Let the colors flow the same! All is well!

The green here in Montebello, Virginia, is vast and encompassing! Nonsenses immersion feels truly immersed, if that’s even a word.
Forest life is so incredibly lush and vibrant, water enabling uncountable broad leaves, ferns, mushrooms, and flowers to fill the landscape with a dense curtain of green. 

Vibrance abounds!

Moving On

May 28, 2016
I guess “S” for “Sebastian” is what the feeling of movement made! John and I left the baby grandson in Charleston, SC late this morning – after just one more hour of babysitting so my son could mow the lawn. Mom was at “an appointment” that was revealed on FB as a hair salon visit. I love how they are being generous to themselves!!

As usual, my three-day visit gave me daily opportunities to have feelings and judgements bubble up, more chances to notice those beliefs and Old Stories that let me me separate from others.

After ten years of using the tools of Radical Forgiveness I can actually notice the feelings and judgements – and love myself for having them!  Yahoo!

I can now love myself for parenting MY way of doing the mothering myself, excluding my husband and other potential caretakers by doing 100% of the nursing, homemaking, and infant care. I can now love myself for being “right” about my way and then blaming my ex for being distant from the boys. I thank him for doing this healing dance with and for me!

I honor my children for choosing their own way of shared parenting and community-building so they can continue their own work while raising a wonderful child.

And now, I move on! I move on to express myself as a walking radical forgiveness coach!

I step joyfully and diligently into my job as host of HeartSinging Walk Community! Creating a space for courageous heartsingers  to design radiantly fulfilling walks of the Appalachian Trail.

I’m driving through Atlanta, Georgia, thinking, “Wow! This feels so familiar, yet has just a tiny twinge of longing to be home here. I HAVE  a home, and it’s now in the California desert, not here in Dekalb County as it was for twelve years. That was my past!”

Nonsenory Immersion feels grounding, expanding, acceptable, yes, and even essential as a part of my consistent message. Today, there’s no question of whether I would do this exercise. It is a welcome moment in my day!

So I continue the journey!

This Nonsenses Immersion emerged over the miles between Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and beyond New Orleans.

Another city goes by without stopping to visit a friend. This time its Carla, an Appalachian Trail friend and coaching colleague. A hello text message suffices for this time. My life certainly has provided me with lots of friends! 

Color flows onto the paper between looks at the luminous NOLA. I reflect on Hurricane Katrina, the fury here 10+ years ago. I think about Maria Maria and her Katrina story that she shifted during a Forgiveness Walk in Atlanta in 2011. My work is valuable! It even touches this place with healing and forgiveness.
Forgiving Hurricane Katrina

A rainbow of wholeness, balance, and beauty imbues my reflection.

Lush Green

May 22, 2016
Nonsenses Immersion coincides today with driving in the wetlands of southwest Louisiana! So much green! The green is dotted and accented with yellow, orange, and red. Blue and purple hover as heavy, gray moisture in the sky above.

I notice that in my search for each color in the landscape that the wholeness of Life becomes evident. If all the colors of wholeness can be found in each landscape, then why not in each of my own moments?

I allow it.
I accept it.
I embrace it.

Where do you find wholeness? Please share your answer here.

Are you struggling with a yearning for wholeness? Join other courageous heartsingers for tips, tools, and support as you create YOUR radiantly fulfilling journey of the Appalachian Trail.

Adjust

May 21, 2016
I realized that my colored pencils are watercolor pencils! Well, not the yellow, actually. That made the blending uneven.

This reminds me of adjusting preferences in life. When something is important, I figure out how to do it within various circumstances. That may require adjusting details, methods, tools, timing. The essence or value of the habit remains, or even expands, as it is incorporated in a new setting.

As I think of examples, I’m coming up with a long list!
☆ Getting whole grains in various living situations
☆ Staying in touch with significant people while hiking
☆ Walking in Nature in various homes
☆ Cooking, washing, etc. on trail and also in different houses and living situations

Perhaps the basic lesson from this is that being comfortable with adjusting the details of lifestyle preferences is a good foundation for a fulfilling nomadic lifestyle!

That’s the kind of conversation available in the HeartSinging Walk Community!
