Walking on the Leading Edge #7- Evolutionary Leaps of Faith Continue…

Surrendering to my future by letting go of my past, was exhilarating, exciting and scary at the same time. Decision-making has never been one of my strengths. For me life is a smorgasbord, the sampler platter. My personality type likes to keep options open so I can experience it all. However, I continue to learn and trust through trial and error life experience that focusing on one choice is deeper, richer and often more fulfilling.  I sometimes feel that saying no to a choice means losing something else. In reality saying no to one thing is an opening, a yes to another opportunity. Following my heart and listening to my intuitive knowing, my gut feeling and inner voice have always led me in the right direction. The challenge and discipline is to quiet and observe the mind that has it’s opinions, concerns, fears, what ifs?!

A heart centered journey connects the dots of Spirit, Divine co-creation and our own free will. Aligning my free will with my Divine will, my Higher, wiser Self  is what I was, and continue to commit to. Cultivating the EDGEWALKER qualities of Sensing the Future and Risk Taking are a powerful team in supporting me in “Aligning with the Divine”.

This awareness, drawing on my sense of adventure and allowing the signs of Spirit to guide me, supported me in taking the next step on my Edgewalker Journey. As I was sitting on the beach in beautiful Kauai in 2007 getting ready to fly back to the Big Island I still questioned if I was doing the right thing. Not knowing what was coming next was a big “leap of faith”.  It was difficult to ignore the signs – the open door invitation to return to the Big Island to visit my ohana (Hawaiian friends/family) and house sit for the Summer months on the beautiful Kohala sanctuary. I stepped into it willingly though with some reluctance, feeling gratitude for the grace and synchronicity that orchestrated my next step.

Being guided all the way with no specific plan but the one designed by the Universe, I stepped onto the “magic carpet” ride called “my life”, holding tight but with an open heart and mind. The adventure continues…

*Lessons:

*To make decisions guided by your intuition take time to quiet the mind, be the conscious observer, notice the mind chatter. Get grounded and connect with your body, your gut feeling.

*Have the courage to trust and make the commitment to honor what you feel, even if your mind disagrees or goes into fear. Say to the mind chatter Thank you for sharing” and turn your focus on your deeper knowing, heart and gut.

* Your life can be a “magic carpet” ride of Divine flow and direction, with ease and grace. It is a choice. Be open to letting go of the familiar. With curiosity, explore a new way for a new outcome. 

 

 

Walking on the Leading Edge #5 – The Edgewalker Journey Continues…

The continuation of my Edgewalker Journey on the Big Island of Hawaii was at a cross roads. I was not expecting the invitation to house sit at the beautiful sanctuary of my new Hawaii friends Joel and Michele and extend my trip for the Summer months. I was conflicted about what to do next and whether or not to accept their offer. So I decided to stay on course and follow the next step in my plan which was to fly to  Kauai, the Garden Isle in the Hawaiian chain. I wanted to explore the beauty and experience the energy there. Each Hawaiian Island has it’s own energy, gifts and lessons. I was curious and open to what Kauai had to offer. I also gained distance and perspective so I could get clear about my decision.

Upon arriving I immediately felt that Kauai was a true tropical paradise, heaven on earth!  The depth and beauty of nature was unlike anything I had experienced before. The colors, flowers, beaches, waterfalls, gardens and air touched my heart and senses. Unlike the beauty of the Big Island which is primal, raw and powerful, a Masculine energy, Kauai is softer, ethereal, a feminine Energy.  As I was exploring the natural and spiritual sites that included a breathtaking helicopter ride, I also met Ohana, my spiritual family on Kauai. My Hawaiian tribe was growing, as I connected with community and friends who I instantly felt at home with.  Little did I know that in the years to come, the island of Kauai would bring my most challenging lessons, emotional healing and spiritual growth.

In spite of the magical moments in the paradise of Kauai, the nagging feeling that I had to go back to the Big Island of Hawaii and extend my trip would not leave me. I could not ignore the signs and the Divine Synchronicity of my Edgewalker journey thus far.  My Edgewalker Skills of  Manifesting and Risk-taking, the ability to try what hasn’t been tried before, trust my instincts and break new ground supported me in taking another leap and making a conscious decision. My friend Jim and future neighbor on the Big Island, encouraged me to fly back to the Big Island and spend the Summer house sitting which made Joel and Michele happy. I chose yes, a conscious choice that to this day sparked a series of events and opened a path that would change my life, from the inside out and outside in. I fastened my “seatbelt” and flew back to my future….!

Lessons:

*Making a conscious choice sometimes requires stepping away and creating time and distance to gain perspective and clarity. When in doubt, don’t (Oprah)!

*We have free will. We can choose from our ego with fear or choose from Divine Will with Love!

*The Universe Handles the Details. Observe, Trust, Allow, Act.  Leap, Let Go and Let God!
