I was meditating the other day after a blissful yoga class… For those of you who don’t know I am currently embarking upon a 40 day yoga challenge. It is not all about yoga it is also about mind and healing. The challenge is to do deep soul work, yoga, and meditation every single day for 40 days. It is day 5 and things are going.
At times I see my resistance to take a look or get up at 5 to do yoga or sit in silence while my mind races… AND the opportunity to go on this journey and with 24 other amazing women and men is sooo exhilarating to me.
Anyways back to my meditation experience. After doing a simple meditation that has become my go to meditation, check out meditation here, I heard a voice say “your hands on your heart”. I did as it said, I grasped my heart with both of my hands and the next words I heard were…
Kimberly commit to yourself, love yourself, honor yourself, follow your heart driven path… this is your only job here.
As I heard the words I knew in my soul that this was my truth.
I am here to walk my path. Trust. Love myself. Trust. Honor myself. Trust. AND commit to myself. Trust. Period.
When I do these things life feels in flow. Life feels enlivened. Life feels at peace and content. Everything else unfolds.
When I stray. When I start putting others needs before my own. Or avoid the challenges in my business and fill my time with pointless activities. When I distract myself in every single way possible… I know because my life begins to feel hard. Like a struggle. I begin to live in my head. I begin to suffer.
When I am living on my path I am present. I am open.
When I am not I am dreaming of all the things I want that I don’t have. When I am not I am rehashing my past and fearing all of the things that ‘could’ happen.
That night after my beautiful meditation experience I fell into a deep sleep. During that deep sleep I dreamt. I was walking down a road in an unfamiliar place. The city was empty and all that was in front of me was a stop light. I stood at the stop light and a man appeared across the street. As I looked at him he said these words to me over and over and over again…
Trust God. Trust God. Trust God.
I woke up from my sleep and literally didn’t remember where I was. I had to look around. The dream was so real. When I realized I was in my bed I began to smile because that is it… I just have to trust. Follow my path and trust. What a beautiful reminder. Similar to the reminder I got last week from the amazing response of my last blog post. Thank you, seriously thank you from the bottom of my heart. You can read that blog here.
What if everything you wanted were to come to you if you simply let go, trusted, and daily walked your path?
My path, I know, is not your path. We all are called here to do different things and that is what makes life and living so beautiful.
Close your eyes and place your hands on your heart. If you don’t have any idea how to begin a process of following your path simple in this moment with your hands on your heart, your eyes closed, commit to yourself. Commit to falling fiercely in love with yourself. Commit to honoring and taking care of yourself. Commit to making yourself a priority. Commit to listening to your hearts calling. Commit to fully and boldly to you.
Your relationship with yourself is the longest, most consistent one you will ever have. It is the one no one can take from you. It is the one that you will stand with til you take your last breath.
If you are ready to commit to yourself please post below. Let us together hold each other in this place of sacred commitment. Let us be a tribe that supports and loves each other as we all walk this wild path called life. Also if these words resonated or you feel called to share them please do. Thank you!
In deep commitment and love,
