Earlier this week one of my readers emailed me asking:
“Have I dropped off of your list somehow? I haven’t
received anything from you in awhile.”
And I realized I haven’t sent anything out in over two months!
So first let me say I hope this email finds you very well.
I’ve been pretty wrapped up in some impending life changes,
which is why I haven’t been as prolific in my emails of late.
In the midst of teaching at Washington University-St. Louis
this semester (Mindful Communication and Presence) working
with clients, teaching Synergia energy healing with my
friend Dr. Samantha St. Julian and facilitating some
leadership trainings, I’ve also been doing a lot of
inner and outer work around letting go.
My daughter Maddie is graduating from college in a
few months, and she also just got engaged. While she
hasn’t lived at home since she went away three and half
years ago, we are quickly approaching the time when our
house will no longer be considered her “permanent address,”
even on paper. In all likelihood, she’ll be living and
working in another city as she prepares for a wedding
and marriage to a man we’ve grown to love.
Bridget is graduating from high school this spring
and will be attending a small private school for young
adults with special needs.
There’s so much for David and me to do as we prepare for
two graduations, a party and two (or more) moves for our
daughters over the next several months.
I’m finding though that what requires even more effort
and energy is learning, again, to trust.
That everything that really needs to get done, will get done.
That good is good enough.
That our daughters have what they need to step out into the world.
The last one is big for me.
Maddie was, in many ways, “born old,” so while I’ll miss her
enormously I also feel confident she’s absorbed a lot of what
she needs and that she’s more than capable of acquiring the rest.
Anticipating Bridget’s flight from our nest requires a different
sort of trust mixed with diligence; however, it ultimately comes
down to the same thing: Do I believe what I teach? Do I invest
my energy in a benevolent Universe?
And mostly, the answer to those questions is yes.
I am human, of course, and in my moments of doubt and
vulnerability I’m fortunate to have people around me who
listen, laugh with me, cry with me, and say things like:
“I can help.”
“Look how far she’s come.”
“Remember when…” (reminders of synchronicities, blessings and growth)
“You’ve given them everything they need. They’re ready.”
And “You’ve read your own book, right?” (I love that one).
We teach what we need to learn, yes?
So I’m in the midst of another Master Manifestation course here.
I’ll keep track of the blessings, synchronicities and miracles
as they occur over the next several months so I can share them
with you later.
In the meantime I so appreciate any loving thoughts, prayers
and good wishes you send to our family as we prepare.
You and your dreams and intentions live in my heart,
