The outer experience reflecting the inner experience

Going inside will give great insight
Sometimes I resist it
The rebel child in me wants it to be done, complete, healed already, on to the next thing
I don’t want to look at myself
Take responsibility for why my life is being reflected back to me in ways that cause me discomfort
What could I possibly be thinking, feeling, focusing on, disbelieving that my outer experience is so
Haven’t I done enough work already?
Shouldn’t I be be-yoooonnd this stuff?  Haven’t I done enough yet?!!

Then, somewhere inside this cyclical process the wise, grounded, expansive, knowing Laura steps in..
Because she KNOWS that life is a process
She KNOWS that there are many many layers to life.. layers that have stacked up over the years
Layers that are ready to clear.. she becomes the sage and the detective.. bringing mindfulness awareness to what is
She goes inside.. she quiets her mind.. she connects with the rebellious or distraught part of herself that is yearning to be seen
And one of the ways she is seen is by the reflection of the inner experience in the outer experience
You know how children will ask for something, then ask again in a different way, then ask again and again and again until you can’t help but pay full attention
It’s something like that.. and what a blessing
That life continues to give us opportunity after opportunity to get up underneath the nitty gritty
To be present with what is
To Invision what we desire to BE, to feel, to experience, to gain clarity
To allow, to be aware, to clear and to KNOW that we are.. yes we truly are, on a path.. on the journey to our truest selves
Bridging the gap between what is and what can be

This is a human experience.. I now know this truth and commit to having more loving compassion for myself and others as we become aware, go inside, reflect and expand into the greatest potentials for our lives and that of the whole

Giving thanks… and now, what about you?!  Can you dig??

Loving myself fully and wholly.. especially through the discomfort

I wake up to the world I say to myself, to the world, to all that is ‘thank you, thank you, thank you’ as I give myself a long embrace I tell myself ‘I love you Laura, I love you soooo much.  thank you, thank you for being here.’ when i’m sensing doubt, fear and disbelief in my own abilities to co~create the life and experiences I dream of and envision so clearly in my minds eye, I embrace myself.. I say ‘Laura, I hear that you are doubtful, that you feel fearful and that you are not believing in your abilities to do your life’s work.. I hear you, I see you and I am here WITH and FOR YOU.. you are so special, you are not alone, I am here, your feelings, needs and desires are important to me.. YOU are important to me’ I remind myself that it is easy to love myself fully and wholly, especially when I am feeling uncomfortable, unclear, unsure and doubtful.  I know that life is here, up underneath me, loving me and supporting me to make my greatest contributions for the flourishing of life everywhere. What are some of your self … Continue reading
