Summer Affirmation Week 5
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
As I release and let be,
I unleash impatience as I set aside my inner urge to control what I do not understand.
Sometimes I feel an overwhelming impatience with myself.
I should always know.
I should always be in control, anticipating everything.
I feel how I demand perfection.
I feel how anything less pushes at my sense of safety.
There is a relentlessness which I feel a compulsion to feel.
But when I take a step back in release, I find a space to breathe.
In the breath in, I feel a new opportunity to let myself be.
In the exhale, as I release the urge to control, I choose a new road.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
I feel impatience with myself when…
I feel impatient with others because…
If I am not fully in control, this will happen…
I can let be best when …
I feel resistance to this release…
In this moment, I can unleash. …
Impatience is not wanting to understand that you don’t understand.
Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.
The Transformative Energy of Summer
Within the energy of Summer, take a chance to relinquish control and unleash the flows of life within.
In this release comes a heart dance of expansion nestled in grace.
The call of Summer is one of release, a letting go of limiting boundaries.
This forward motion cuts loose all which does not serve your path forward.
Summer light supports the transformative energy: UNLEASH.
To unleash: let go, let be.
The primary block to conscious awareness is fear – fear in all its many forms.
In its primary form, fear is a reaction to the unknown, the unexpected, the potential for hurt and harm.
To unleash awareness doesn’t require running headfirst into a wall of fear.
Instead, the process of unleashing comes in the gentle release, turning attention to where you feel tension, tightness, and resistance.
To unleash is to let go, let be.
No more effort to hold back, duck, or deny.
In the release, awareness begins to bubble up into consciousness.
You catch momentary glimpses which become full views of your Best Self, here, already, in this moment.
As the release of Summer deepens, the perspective of those hidden places shifts.
What before was unseeable, now becomes understandable.
What was feared has become opportunity to release and grow.
In Summer, you unleash awareness to become your Best Self!An excerpt from: Summer: Unleash Awareness to Become Your Best Self
