These past two years have been some of the most transformative of my life! It started with the crumbling of my life after surgery and radiation, deleting all my YouTube videos accidentally, and led to the epiphany that I had been striving my whole life and just had to be here now. I had no other choice. For the first time in my life I had to be happy here. I couldn’t date or fly. I couldn’t escape.
I went to a Vipassana ten-day meditation retreat and have been meditating for at least a half hour a day ever since. Exercising more also helped hugely. Anyway, this is not a post about that. I wanted to write the story of the last seven years (because it’s crazy) (the story is) (and very helpful) (the sharing of it). So I did that, taking eighteen months and going hard with it this year in particular till I had finished the five drafts. Now I’ve sent it to agents.
Yesterday was the first day I truly felt the freedom of having finished it. Used to being a task-master now, I took the manuscript to the café as scheduled yesterday to work on reviewing it. After glancing and skim reading, I realised I’m done for now. You don’t need to do this. I would like an editor to look at it but until then, give it a rest.
Oh what joy. Remembering alignment, it was such a beautiful sunny day yesterday that I decided to go out. I journeyed to King’s Park, loving the drive and the freedom to stop and do an errand. King’s Park is a magical place, full of tree beings and leaf friends. I walked over the hanging bridge and down the paths, before wandering all the way into the city.
Even a trip to the bank feels like a glorious achievement when you are used to focusing so much and blocking the rest out, doing only what’s urgent or important. But ideas have been percolating, impulse to impulse. First I felt called to revive this Wonderlusting blog last week and then, continuing on from it, this Sunday I was so alive with ideas for my transformational coaching business.
Just now I wrote Powerfully You: 40 Ways to Master the Magical and the Everyday in two hours. I’m going to be gifting this in the coming days so stay tuned. I love how the law of attraction works, receiving ideas, impulse to impulse. Yesterday I rewrote my coaching page with a special introductory offer and then last night, after a conversation with my dad, I realised I simply must do this.
I love discovering the power of the mind and practising energetic alignment and have been doing so since age twenty-four, when a break-up had my thoughts going in circles and I just wanted my mind to be quiet. Having this break these past two years, I was able to enjoy another love, language and teaching people from all over the world.
I love how my coaching business allows me to indulge many of my loves and I work so much better than before, free of the distractions and the distractors. I’m excited to share these forty ways to master the magical and the everyday too. It what I’ve been, piece by piece, incorporating.
Do you love the magical too?
