Now, I see how unrealistic these daydreams were. I have other work to do, balance to keep, and a family and body to look after.
When all was said and done, I didn't pick up my pastels once. I did 2 x drum paintings, and week 3 was full of clay making.
So I have learned that the physical creating is not what has been important for June, instead it has been creating and maintaining good health, balance and peace. I have created lots of smiles and beautiful connections this month too.
I think that if I want a month to purely create, I will need to stop all other work for that time, because I cannot physically do both - maybe something to consider sometime.
MY INSPIRED WORD FOR JULY...
A day or so ago I stumbled on the word RESISTLESS - I had no idea it existed!!
Usually I select my theme word for the new month based on something propelling and that I have been thinking about or noticed the month lead-up
June has been a big healing month, and I have observed my journey through it becoming easier, and I truly feel its because I am resisting less and flowing more. So to stumble upon a word which is resisting-less thrilled me.I'm doing this...
1 : too strong to be resisted
2 : offering no resistance
My aim at this point is to definitely ensure I have zero expectations and anticipations - because I already know through experience that these can naturally block the flow - generating resistance.
We'll see where this focus takes me.
How I will implement it is to:
- ponder it as deeply as I can throughout July.
- write the word at the top of every day's schedule as a reminder.
- explore its opposite - resistance - further.
- make time to meditate to explore its feeling to me.
- each week reflect in my journal how I am traveling with this word.
- create, celebrate and use my theme word in my everyday language.
- anything else that inspires me as I flow resistlessly.
Tomorrow is the final day of June here, however I do feel ready to start transitioning into my new focus now (as I've tended to do the past few months). I'm excited to see where this word and my increasing understanding of it can take me.
What are your thoughts? Did you know that RESISTLESS existed? Are you inspired to discover a theme word for your July? If so, what will it be?
You're welcome to use this one too if you're inspired to - or select your own. I'll keep you updated as I'm inspired to throughout July!!
All my LOVE,
