What does that transition look like? We are learning that with every moment. We are fully embraced by God, Spirit, The Universe. We have utmost faith that with prayer and conscious action, we are being and will continued to be guided in every step that we take.
What does that transition look like right now? A Mama sitting in a dark room, with a laptop propped in an empty bookcase (that Eli cleared himself as one last ditch effort before bed). This mama is surrounded by sealed boxes, empty shelves and cabinets, stealing a moment of peace before the world awakens and the flurry of activity begins again.
What does the future appear to hold for us? Well, we have a family transitioning our home to theirs on the first of the month. We hope to be on the road around that time. We are loading up the dogs and the children and heading west. Over the course of the next couple of years we are educating ourselves, with out enrolling in a University. Sort of an adult version of homeschooling. Our long time dream is to open a retreat center. Our focus is to visit centers throughout the country to witness, and participate in their mission. To learn, to grow. We will develop our nutritional awareness, deepen our spiritual center, and ground into our physical bodies.
Our first destination is the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona. This center lines up with so many of our values, exuding health, spirit and community. We will take our turn in the kitchen there, refining our chef skills. We look forward to joining the community in their meditation, yoga and worship services. We are excited to explore all schooling options, and to embrace a new community of individuals on a path of health and spirituality.
Yes, we have an amazing family that will host us as we settle in. And Yes, my in-laws are conveniently settling in to their new home just north of where we are headed. Is this comforting? Absolutely.
Do we have any idea how long we will be there? Or where we will go next?
A short answer would be, no, not at all.
We are following our hearts, following the illuminated path that we know is there for all of us, no matter how dimly lit it may seem at times, no matter what higher power, we connect with. The answer is there for us all, we just need to open our hearts and listen. The more space we create to listen to that inner guide, the brighter the path becomes.
The room I sit in has become bright, birds are chirping, pitter-pattering of footsteps, I can now see the chaos around me. Little arms embrace my neck. Time to start my day.
