Lots of changes. Tons of changes. Some of which I've embraced and others where I've had no choice. And my great belief and faith is that all the change, all the Phoenix Rising moments, are exactly what are needed and wanted.
I'll be - I AM - the better for all the change.
I journaled for the first time today since I've been back in Maryland (there's a perfect coffee shop in downtown Carmel, California, where I wrote four days - unheard of! - and I miss it so much). After I did my journaling today,as I do once or twice a year, I went back to journals I wrote in the last four years.
Wow. That was quite a perspective.
If I ever needed the movie of my life to show how different things are now compared to a year ago, two years ago, three years ago...
I'm different. And yet somehow more me.
The biggest thing I've realized is that I've spent the last forty years (sigh, it just SOUNDS old) with many of my relationships have been unequal in power, with me usually on the losing side. As I delve more into chakras and archetypes, I was particularly struck by the archetypes of the third chakra: dysfunctional Victim and functional Warrior.
I've consciously spent the last six or so years taking back my power and being more the Warrior.
All the important relationships in my life are there by choice. No victim status here.
Anyway, the point is really how struck I was by how I go back and review journals, and the insight that brings. Do you read back over journal entries you've written?
