This year has been a big clearing out year for me and as well as doing some inner clearing, I have literally gone through every single item. During this process I came across some vision boards. One in particular that had special meaning for me. I made it back in 2013 during my Meditation Teacher Training and it took a whole day to make. There was a ritual around making it and it had many layers and lots of good and heartfelt energy. Since then I made two more in the same style and they all hung in my room. At first I didn't want to get rid of them but in the end I said to myself, 'Just let them go!' and I did.
It wasn't until a while later that I realised the significance and symbolism of this. While I do see vision boards as valuable tools and processes to connect us to what truly lies in our heart, they can also limit us to what we believe to be possible in that moment. For instance there are some people on this planet that I really wanted to work with but by focusing on them I perhaps restricted my access to people I didn't know. People who would be the ideal energetic match to work with, people I couldn't give a name to because I didn't know who they were.
If you've ever done any manifestation work you may have seen the phrase, 'This or something better'. This gives the Universe the space and opportunity to create its magic and bring you something you never could have dreamed of. Sometimes the ideal person/scenario we imagine is only a small part of what is truly possible.
So I recycled the vision boards, wanting to bring in some new energy and space, and I found myself organising a collaboration with an amazing sound healer/musician. Someone I'd never heard of, someone who never would have made it to my vision board because I didn't know he existed. I left it in the hands of the Universe. I'm not saying you don't have to do any work......because you do but it's finding that balance between letting go and holding on. Trusting in yourself and the universe and creating the space for the magic to occur.
When I think about this upcoming collaboration I see the union of masculine and feminine energies. I see a strong connection to the Earth and the elements. I see the powerful vibrations of sound dancing and interacting with the energies of all those who choose to attend. I know that not only will the attendees benefit but I too will take my work to another level, I too will benefit from the beautiful and powerful energies we will be working with. For that I am truly grateful.
What a blessing to share this moment with a beautiful and kind soul........someone who loves the Earth and the animals as much as me. Someone who has the courage to follow their heart and to walk to the rhythm of their soul.
If you'd like to join us we would love to connect and share this beautiful sacred space with the energies of Warrandyte supporting us: https://www.facebook.com/events/1603363816634291/
