On Friday I had a phone coaching session with personal coach Leslie Avon Miller. I don't know how she did it but I ended up refilled with enthusiasm for finding my home. I've been pretty glum about it since I backed out of that last situation, plus lost a lot of money too on the deal. (photo of a section of my vision board)
My brain just couldnt think of what to do next. My logical mind knows the steps to take of course. But my right brained self was drained and blank. Leslie suggested I make a Vision Board. A vision board is just a sheet of poster board or paper (I used a 19 by 25 sheet of charcoal paper because I had it) on which you cut out and paste on pictures from magazines, pictures that leap up at you and resonate. (entire vision board)
Leslie said NOT to cut out pictures of houses, but to show pictures of fun things. Luckily I had a few magazines left and so on Saturday I put this together.
I love doing this sort of thing. I will take this with me when I go on my next home search quest, riding my Pippi polka-dotted horse (red Toyota). I wanted to glue my own head on this kick-boxer but it didnt work. I did glue my own head in the upper right hand window.
I have two other assignments. One is to write the answer to this question: What does not moving cost me? I have been taking notes and will write this soon.
The other task was to research moving and movement. During our talk, Leslie asked me to stand up and dance or move around as we spoke. Every now and then she would say "are you still moving" and often I had sat down again. Movement is also a way to balance ones chakras, especially the lower ones. Not only do I need to move, but I need to move. LOL.
Leslie suggested that I make a temporary move and stay on the Cape for a month. And see what happens.(Despite the fact that this is the high season, I have two cats etc. Excuses, excuses). To get things flowing. She had me talk about my creative process and I said well I just do some small thing and then from there more ideas come, things begin to flow. The same idea can apply to other areas of my life when I feel stuck and paralyzed as I have been feeling.
Ready, get set, flow. Thanks Leslie.
