Two Days ’til Nomadic Lifestyle Begins: Relieving Stress

I have a confession to make about this countdown! I planned in a few days of “cushion” time, knowing that if I used my drop dead final day for leaving for my new job, I’d be in the state I am today on my truly last day!  Well, that was smart!  I had planned to use that cushion taking an extra trip up to the Len Foote Hike Inn, prepared to need the days for unfinished moving business.

As I had suspected, my fictitious penultimate day has me feeling stressed, on the brink of my Stress Syndrome, when I feel nauseous, headachey, cold, and sleepy!  This time, I caught myself slipping into it and addressed it. Instead of eating carbohydrates that I crave, I ate a salad with living sprouts and nutritional yeast (for the B vitamins). I breathed into the day, and did a Radical Forgiveness “Emerge-n-See” process, those 4 magical steps to energy shift.

The front door buzzed with activity for an hour late this morning when my two sons arrived, one to pick up the tools he gets to keep, one to get off to class before he moves out this evening. Right on their heels was the designer bringing decorations and advice about cabinet knobs. And just minutes before I was scheduled to take a coaching call, the realtor popped in with a contract to sign. I did my best to relax and assist each one with their goals.

Receiving Unlimited Abundance

Then, a surprise visitor! My friend, Deanna, had taken a box of photos home with her last week, promising to scan them onto a memory stick for me to help lighten my moving load. Well, there she was, returning them all scanned and sorted! A quick check of the files lit me up with happy memories! One photo helped me realize that even at a young age I imagined myself receiving unlimited abundance from infinite sources. In this photo, I’m letting Niagara Falls cascade into my cupped hands! Now THAT’S receiving!

 

The coaching call went smoothly, while I paced in my empty studio, missing the couch that’s taking up residence in my sons’ apartment. I had my doubts about taking clients this week while I’m packing, but coaching actually helps ME stay centered and use the powerful shifting tools myself. As usual, I get as much benefit from the session as my coaching “collaborator”.

Time for a relaxing bath! Ease out the sore spots and enjoy the warmth.

Now, I’m recharged and ready to move stuff again. But, the rooms are 98% empty! “When did that happen?! It’s actually happening! There IS an end to the sorting!” I ran the dust mop around the empty rooms, reminding myself to create a blessingway ceremony for each room.

Later this afternoon, another collaborator, Wendy, came to pick up her Satori Game and inquire about learning how to facilitate the game. We explored the possibility of collaborating on a Facilitator’s training. What a fabulous idea! She left an hour later with two projects underway: learning to host Satori Games, and checking into financing the possible purchase of MY HOUSE!

Well, guess what! My stress is relieved!  I feel blessed!  I feel  creative and supportive! I feel productive and supported! Gratitude fills me and I am ready for the next steps!!

 

 

11 Days “til Nomadic Lifestyle Begins: Pictures

I love the family pictures! Those kids were soooo cute! Still, all the photo albums are big and bulky. Do I have time to scan them all? Probably not, but I’m getting started anyway! To my good fortune, my friend, Vanessa, wants to help because she likes being in my little garden apartment space. So, that may be a great trade – ambiance for scanning!

OK! Let’s go this! She’s already gotten started with several dozen scanned photos on the hard drive.

Yes, those kids were sooo cute!

14 Days’til Nomadic Lifestyle Begins: Urgency

Fifteen days sounds infinitely longer than fourteen! There’s something about saying “just two weeks more” that makes the unfinished list look endless and the unsorted stuff look mountainous!

It’s time to step into “through-hiker” mode! On the trail, that means get up early and walk past dark, stopping for only short breaks.

I’m thinking that for moving, it might mean “get more help”! I think the main help I could use is this
         1. Feed me!
         2. Help me sell things
         3. Help me schedule the tasks

There’s something about having a lot to do that actually slows me down!

Right now, I’ll observe this and know that I WILL get it all done!

The mountain will be climbed one step at a time.

19 Days ’til Nomadic Lifestyle: “Hard”

Twice in the past twelve hours, friends have used the word “hard” to qualify their endeavors. Since that gave ME a charge, I figure that’s something for me to look at. “Hard”, for me, implies a list of judgments like:
“this is not acceptable”
“I don’t like this”
“I’m being forced to do something.”

When I say something is hard, there’s always a resistance to the undertaking. I’m going ahead with something reluctantly, half-heartedly, doing it only because something outside of me says it must be done.

Hard means I believe I have to stretch myself physically and mentally to accomplish my goal.

Did my friends’ reflections alert me that maybe I’m judging my own transition as “hard” when it could be “easy” with an attitude change?

Or maybe it’s neither easy or hard, just high energy. Looking back at how I have been functioning while choosing what to do with all the things in my house, I realize that sometimes I’ve thought, “this is hard, I don’t want to do this.” I’m feeling trapped.
However, it was I who dreamed of Hiking Lifestyle as I walked the trails. It is I who have said, “when I’m hiking there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing.”

I wasn’t saying, “I’d rather be in my store room fingering things from my past”. So, am I confusing things by now complaining that I have attracted to myself the dissolution of my life in a house?

How can I, in my thoughts, my words, my actions, and yes, my feelings, be co-creative in the flow that is opening up for me the dream I have created? How can I make this “easy”?

21 Days to Go! Focus

LoonThere’s nothing that energizes me quite like a nice walk in the woods,especially if it’s in the woods on a long-distance trail!  Walking from the Len Foote Hike Inn back to my car at Amicalola Falls Park Visitor’s Center, I danced down the trail, meeting a dozen fresh hikers starting their treks to Maine.

It’s so heartwarming to me to talk with hikers just beginning their long walk, knowing what they may encounter. I tingle inside in surrogate celebration and inner pride, wishing deeply for their success.

At home, by contrast, today, my eyes glaze over with the list of pre-move tasks. My house selling team bounce through the house, bursting with ideas for staging it just right to attract the perfect buyer. I volunteer to do some of the projects – change the light fixtures, paint walls, but it all pools in a quiet mud of overwhelm.  I realize today that the complexity and immensity of this transition has not registered in my brain to be organized and scheduled. Randy, the designer, says, “You have a lot to do! Is this all going to get done?”  I respond, “I think I have not internalized it all yet, maybe you need to poke me awake.”

In three weeks, I’m proposing to be ready for my new life, at least in my house. I need to remind myself to focus. Yes, it’s coming. Time to get organized!

First, offer one of my favorite prints to some possible candidates in Minnesota. They might appreciate the hand-painted lithograph of a north lake icon – the loon.

 

 

24 Days to My Nomadic Life: Momentum

Yesterday was a miracle day! That’s when synchronicities happen that are hard to miss. I want to believe that freeing my body of that “unworthiness” belief created an energetic space for three events:

1. A prospective client called
2. A significant local advertiser invited me to be the featured community sponsor
3. My mentor group nourished me with lavish attention
4. My ideal client responded to an interview request immediately
5. I shared information, tips, and ideas on Facebook and they were gladly received.

Now, I can thrive with that kind of interaction!

Today, I can plan to keep the momentum flowing, starting with a coaching session with a social activist I met on Facebook. I can imagine collaborating with her, sharing my gifts and tools and receiving access to her community.

Today’s affirmations that are truly words that proclaim what I now see is true, not just my wish:

I give and receive abundantly with joy and purpose!

My work is valuable and desired!

I’m as popular as anyone else!

I know what to do today and I love it!

OK. Later in the day of Momentum. Hmm. I do have a challenge with focus. I lose it quickly. Do I need to label myself ADHD? Make a list? Love myself hopping from one thing to another? Accept that what suits me best is hiking. There’s the path and me with my backpack. Simple. Forward movement. Purposeful activities. Beauty always.

How can I make letting go of the things that I have and I love here and really be free of them?  There are probably a thousand things in my house that could have a purpose. I have so many useful resources for crafting things and doing things and learning things. They are just stored here waiting to be used! And now, I’m proposing to liquidate my store of its useful things.

This is painful for a resource collector!
