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.
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!!
