Feeling Stuck? Open To Grace

There is a time for hustle and a time to let grace infuse every particle of your being so that you are bouyant with flow. With ease you are floating in a state of receptivity and vertical anchoring as you take action. There is no push, effort, struggle. Fear does not contract you, causing tension, stress, and inflammation in your body. Your thoughts become more like clouds slowly gliding across the landscape of your mind.


Each action or nonaction comes from a place of internal knowing, of intuition, soul guidance, universal whispers. You check your body for any sign of contraction for the ego sneaking its way in to claw at grace. Space. There is so much spaciousness in the body, between breaths, thoughts, your shoulders and your ears, the back of your heart. It is a happy dance, a swing of the hips, a fist pumped in the air, or an expansion of percetion to the very edges of the expanding universe.



It is this heart beating in your chest. Can you hear it?


It is the sweet taste of the breath. Can you taste it?


And as the grace swirls and oscillates, expands and lifts you vertically, it acnhors you into your body and to this earth.


Only the anchoring doesn’t feel like containment, but a holding and pure potential of percetion.


You have been here before.


In this state of being.


If only for a few seconds, you soared into the holding of your heartbeat, the expansion of the universe pulsing you open.


So the question now is, are your ready? You need not be anything, do anything, attain anything in order to ask for grace to fill you, to move you, unfurl you petal by petal. Or spin you open like a galaxy unwinding over the eons of time.


It need not take that long.


Do it in your own way. A whisper. So soft. Let the expansion be as slow and tender as you deserve it to be, here, now.


Or you can bottom out. Allow your feet to be swept up on off the floor and go fluid, floaty, bouyant.


You’ve been pushing and struggling for so long. It’s time to ask the ego to take a rest, take a backseat to your soul. Your soul knows you need not go it alone.


You need not hold it all together on your own, no matter how the niggling voice in the back of your head tells you otherwise. Everything will not fall apart if you let go of the clutch.

Release the rigid. The straight. The contained and suppressed and the hidding of your truth. It’s time to be honest about every faucet of you as a multidimensional being.


Fear will tell you that you will be burned. You’ve put your hand in the fire enough times to know that if you do it again, then the pain will be real.


The fear doesn’t want you to realize that each time you hurt, you learned and you don’t need pain to be your source of growth anymore. You can grow in a state of grace.

Willpower and focus exist in a state of grace, but there is a new lining up of your most authentic priorities. Most of what others demand or expect of you will be eliminated. Did you ever stop to ponder that if something was making you miserable, then there was something wrong with that element in your life?


It is not for you to expand anyone else. It isn’t only your task; it isn’t your right. You are not here to do, attain, achieve, or be what others think they need so they can feel less anxious, tight, contracted.


You are here to expand you and not to stand in the way of any other being’s expansion. Do not unto others, what you would not have them do to you.


So visualize yourself easing backward into an invisible force sweeping up to catch you and sway you in a flow of expansion. Allow yourself to get light. Close your eyes and listen to a sound, far, far, far away. The angels singing at the edges of this galaxy. Or even farther.


Expand your energy fields to the siwrling, expanding edges of the spiraling universe. Open further as your root to the earth.


Stay embodied as you sway, spiral, open. Bring your awareness to what you feel you are here to be. Follow the trail of activities, people, places, things, and states of being that light you up from the inside and expand you open. Do more of these. Brainstorm a tiny step you can commit to doing daily to continue your expansion.


Is it sitting and absorbing the beauty of a blossom? The humming of a bumblee? Dancing to your favorite music? Writing your next paragraph of your book? Practicing a skill? Connecting out with others to build your business? Cuddling with a loved one? Baking brea? Cooking? Gardening? Being in honest conversation with someone important to you each day?


Get out a post it card or a slip of paper that is tiny. No bigger than your hand. Decide on four-six areas of your life you want to fill with more grace. Each morning list your areas on the left and then add your top 1-3 priorities for each area.


What areas of your lifedo you want to focus on now? Here are some examples:


  1. Kids. Health. Work. Home. Spiritual practice.

  2. Friends. Work. Health. Love. Service.

  3. Finances. Home. Health. Play.

  4. Creativity. Fun. Connection. Nature.


Next, ask your soul and a higher force for your next steps.


Examples of soul-inspired daily action priority lists:


Kids. Make a lovely homemade meal.

Health. Go for a walk in the woods.

Work. Finish the video production.

Home. Buy fresh flowers and arrange around home. Vaccuum.

Spiritual practice. Meditate 30 minutes.


Friends. Ask friends to go to yoga together and for a drinks afterwards.

Work. Ask boss for more responsibility and pay.

Health. Pack and eat veggies before any snack or meal.

Love. Buy partner a surprise small present.

Service. Volunteer this afternoon.


Creativity. Throw a new piece of pottery tonight.

Fun. Play Frisbee with my kids in the park after school.

Connection. Call my Dad.

Nature. Go for a run in the park. Eat lunch outside.


Finances. Create a budget. Research new investment options.

Home. Reorganize my closet and release one bag of clothing.
