Breadcrumbs on the path

Greetings everyone,

Summer is quickly flying by us all.  Before you know it the fall will be here.  I tend to get sad this time of the summer when it is past the solstice and the fourth of July.  I start thinking the trees will be turning soon.  To quote a book, "Winter is Coming."

Like many people who made plans to do so much once the warm season starts I have fallen short of my goals.  It seems like I make little to no progress.  Although lately I have been taking small steps each day towards accomplishing some of the tasks I set for myself at the beginning of summer.

For several reasons I have been lead to seek out office space to expand the work that I do.  For the past few years I have been primarily web based for my energy shifting work.  I do love my distance work that I do for people, but traveling and working with people in person made me crave that face to face interaction.  I will still be doing distance work, but I believe that meeting clients will make all my sessions more valuable to my clients.

I began looking for office space in June, and it is nearly August.  I've had a few leads but still haven't settled on a space.  I've often felt discouraged and thought that I have been dragging my feet.  Yet each delay has served me and led me further along the path.  Like the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel, my guides leave me little breadcrumbs for me to follow.  I've met more people and have started to see who would make a good office mate.  So in that respect I have moved forward.

From the outside it looks as if nothing is happening.  That is often the case with me.    I have found my process is a slow one usually, until the last moment where all the little steps finally seem to add up in a way that makes sense. Then everything moves very fast (people even might think I am impulsive), but things had been moving that way for months or  years.  It is easy to become frustrated with ourselves when our timeline doesn't match up with the universe's or the expectations of others.

So why am I writing about this?  I am sure many of you are moving towards your goals, and it may seem that you are getting nowhere.  I say be patient with yourself and your world and deal with what is in front of you.  Look for signs along the path to keep you moving one step towards your dream.  If you think you aren't moving fast enough don't get upset and don't berate yourself; growth happens when you are supported not when you are criticized.

Peace and Blessings,

Summer Time Shifts

Greetings readers,

Sometimes in the midst of the biggest shifts it can look like not much is happening on the surface.  In the past month I have scoured the area for office space and have looked at quite a few maybes.  I've quietly begun working on my next cycle of pottery.  I've also been looking at deep rooted patterns within myself that keep me from stepping into my full power and joy.

The chaos of life seems to still be surrounding me.  Currently I have a friend a recovering from a major stroke.  Within my immediate family I've had someone suffer a minor stroke this week.  Many of my loved ones are struggling hard with personal issues.  They have reached a precipice and are struggling to find a way past it.

I have had many people ask how I stay so calm.  My secret is that I am most often not calm.  I simply appear that way.  I feel the fear and anxiety like everybody else (in some cases more so), but I do my best to radiate a calm exterior.  The world needs no help from me to freak out.  I have found that I can be afraid and yet still do my best to remain in love for the ones I care about.  I have learned I don't have to be perfect to provide valuable service to others.

When I designed my Year of Transformation I knew that I would shift along with the participants.  I simply didn't realize the breadth of change that would occur within me.  My mind still passes through Crazy Town on a regular basis, but it seems as if I don't stop there as long as I used to.  For those of you who are waiting to be perfect or more confident to accomplish a life goal or purpose, stop waiting and get moving.  If you have a temperament like mine you'll never "feel ready" to tackle the next leg of the journey, but you will be ready despite your own doubts.  As an example I will let you know that I always experience a real discomfort when I hear my voice recorded, whether that is an audio file or one of my videos.  It grates on me and I can get really self conscious and critical on myself.  The interesting thing is that people know me from my videos and my interviews, and so I just have to let that self critical voice go.  I still hear it, but after doing enough videos and audio events I am able to accept me...mostly.

So what is the point of this post?  It is to let you know that I feel change coming all around me and within me.  I feel change coming into the world even though the exterior looks crazy.  Part of my job is to help anchor and hold a vision of a world and a life that I wish to help create.   Ask yourself what shifts are going on in your world that no one else sees.  Give yourself credit for any changes you've made to better yourself or your world.  Find that place where you can be afraid, but still touch the vibration of love.  Hear your fears but don't listen to them.  When you figure all that out let me know, because I will want tips.

Peace and Blessings,
Thomas Mooneagle
