Summer Affirmation Week 7
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
As I release and let be,
I unleash disrespect as my awareness encounters my inherent gentleness.
I realize I may use thoughtlessness to protect myself.
To counter the roughness and ridicule of life.
However, within attention is a moment of peace.
To acknowledge my Best Self.
To understand that gentleness with myself is not weakness.
Instead, gentleness is a kindness which allows me to acknowledge all of me.
All the hard edges and all the gentle motions.
To hold back is to deprive me of me.
Disrespect fades as gentleness guides.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
I am afraid I will be hurt when…
I do not trust others because…
I feel I must keep barriers erected because…
I do not like to be aware of…
I can learn to respect my gentle bits by…
In this moment, I can unleash…
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.
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!
