June guidance for the month 2020
Embarking on an Adventure
“I savor the wonders of the world.”
As soon as I turned this card, I thought it seemed very recently familiar. Yup, it was the last card I pulled as a general reading in my live video reading session Friday evening May 29th on Facebook, to lead us into the weekend. I guess it was really setting up the next month too! Here we go, Adventuring…
At a time when “Adventure” takes on a whole new meaning for many people, it is also a time when the adventure is so very needed. You may have planned things, you may have had activities that were on your schedule, you were looking forward to times and places… and here you are, much of that completely changed. Acknowledge what you are missing. Allow yourself the time, space, and energy to grieve. And then see the adventure that is right in front of you, the one you are currently on.
How many times have you been a part of something that did not go as planned? Pause for a moment here and reflect, really reflect on this. How often do things go as planned and how often do things run smoothly according to the laid out plans? There is a balance within this that is to be realized and attained. Having a plan helps a human (and other creatures do it to) prepare for a desired or needed outcome. That outcome may be the result of the adventure or it may be the adventure itself. Get into your system and notice how it feels to you when something does not go according to plan.
For some people, the spontaneity and flexibility of changing plans is a driving force, they live for it and they live by it. They think, adapt, and respond quickly, engaged in the next route that they come up with or that is shown to them. They and adventure are used to writing and rewriting scripts as needed and as wanted. For some people, when plans change, they do find solutions but it is after or with frustrated reaction. Their relationship with adventure is not quite so smooth and forgiving. And then another group, find that when life does not go as planned, they are lost in the “what was to be” and may notice they get stuck without stepping forward or become overtaken by the frustration, grief, and loss without seeing their other options, even if those options stand directly in front of them.
This is not to say that it is unacceptable to be frustrated when plans take big and important turns. Not at all. There is a point and a need in the reaction that comes up. The more the individual is aware of the reaction they are having, while the plans are in progress, before, after, and if they need to change, the more the person will be shown where they are seeking balance, where they are in balance, and where they are wishing balance for others.
To expect situations to always go as planned is to bring a belief that you are in control of every component that is touched by and that touches the plan. Does that make sense? Looking at your life, living your life, do you have knowledge that you have a hand of control in how everything will work out? You play a part yes. You have commitment and responsibility yes. You have choice yes. But do you have control over all the aspects that intersect with your life? We say “No” but what do you say? You have choice after all.
As you notice how you work with planning things in your life and what your expectations of control are, you are provided with opportunity at every crossroads and at every doorway. Prevention, preparation, and intention through planning, in balance with choice, life’s intricate web, and the unknown. Where are you at with that balance? Where are those around you at? Where is your community, your society, your country, your world? Observing through the eyes of others and the big picture gives you valuable perspective that will enhance your ability to live in your moments, to intend forward, to plan, and to act as choices are presented to you.
Now what is the Adventure you are Embarking on? Is it one you intended? Is it one that seems thrust upon you? Is it shifting and changing under your feet seemingly with each breath? Or is it just a ride you are enjoying as the waves carry you watching the scenery, feeling the flow and air, seeing the creatures, feeling, and learning? There is no right or wrong answer, there is only your answer in this moment.
In whatever aspect you are currently on related to your Adventure of life, you are experiencing life, your life. What greater adventure is there really? For some this adventure is literally climbing the biggest mountains of the world, for others it is raising multiple children teaching and showing them what they need for human life, for some it is where joy is found in the simple complexity of a flower, while others create human achievements that are recognized worldwide, and so on. There is no one way to adventure, there is no right way - there is only your way. But…
When the adventure of one cuts off or hinders the adventure of another, there is imbalance. This imbalance radiates out until someone shifts it. What you see may not be what another sees. What you know is not what another knows. What you do is yours alone to control. Highlight this paragraph, feel it and recognize it, speak to it and with it… live it.
The wonders of the world start in your own home and your own backyard. Adventuring far away to find them is like waiting for the wind to come across the mountain top on the other side of the world before you take a breath. That wind is connected to your breath but you will lose out if you wait that long. What wonders of the world you are living in are right in front of you asking to be seen, noticed, understood. Giving them awareness in honest discovery may be the start of the shift for balance in more ways than you can currently imagine.
What adventure is being presented to you? What actions are you choosing? What wonders of your world are you observing and understanding? Be present in your life, it is a wonder of the highest degree surrounded and deeply connected with the world, your world.
