For 2012, let’s do something a lil’ different. Let’s replace force and fatigue, with nectar and color. Let’s be honeysuckle-smart, and attract our pollinators with sweet scent and eye-catching color.
Allure. Can you sense how different it feels from traditional goal-setting? Allure is the power to attract. Wouldn’t you agree that flowers have mastered the art of attraction?
Their existence depends on a reproductive process that’s entirely out of their control. The only thing they can do is be. Yes, we are much more complex than a lily… but the lily is an unmatched teacher in getting sublime results, without all the effort and stress our “sophistication” so often calls for.
Choose one or two things that, if established, would totally impregnate your life with bouncing joy. If it’s daring and big, let it be. If it’s docile and tiny, let it be. And, let it talk. Listen to what your Deep Desire has to say. Ask it to describe itself to you. What is the experience or feeling it wants to give you? Books, screenplays and songs want to be written to give the experience of self-expression. Physical bodies want to be fit and firm to give the experience of feeling and looking good. Money wants to be earned to give the experience of security and generosity. Hearts want to be shared to give the experience of loving connection.
You get the point. The thing you most long for comes with a high and pure reason for your wanting it. Concentrate on both the What and the Why. Hold it fondly inside of you while watching this one-minute video.
As you watch, water your Deep Desire with these words:
Open, open, open.
We open to give our pollen grains,
trusting that they will be carried to a fertile host.
We also open to receive the pollen grains of another,
allowing ourselves to be that fertile host.
As multi-dimensional beings,
we accept our varied roles and functions:
sometimes as a male seed of strong vision;
sometimes as a female egg of dynamic potential; and
sometimes as a mobile agent that carries and deposits Life;
always in need of each other.
Flourishing is a collaboration.
For this reason — and unto each other —
we surrender, we uncoil, we unfold.
Anais Nin said, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” TODAY IS THAT DAY, BELOVED.
Do you need a caring and intelligent witness
for your alluring dream or project?
Do you want support for your brave decision
to rely on the integrity, strength, ability and surety
of your gifts to fragrance the world around you?
You are enough. More than enough. Right now.
I’d be honored to assure you of this, and help you
yield your desired fruit in this pivotal new year.
