Just Stop! and Surrender

Sometimes its time to Just Stop! and Surrender.… I was driving through the beautiful Ibizan countryside yesterday and I reached a red-light – most unusual in these small roads and natural surrounds – and my inner-mind spoke up: “hmmmm – it must be time to Just Stop! “ I laughed to myself: it had been a beautiful, memorable, yet intense few weeks, many wonderful clients and amazing, transformational retreats, gorgeous boat trips and sacred family time.  Yet not much down time…  So what was missing?  Why was I feeling this? Because I needed some slow-down time for me.  I saw a negative thought flash through my consciousness: “I am so sick of driving everywhere” And, just as the universe works with such precision to bring us exactly what we are asking for, my beautiful white jeep shortly stopped… just like that! At the bottom of a small hill.   And so that… was that.  I had to Just Stop! and Surrender.

* I noticed myself feeling relieved, as I rearranged appointments.  I accepted and even embracethe situation with the insight that this was going to be a beautiful learning curve and was what my soul was actually asking for, the jeep was faithfully towed to the mechanics leaving me… car-free for 24 hours at least !

* I was able to slow down as I surrendered and began to let go of control.  

* I breathed deeply into my belly and trusted that we would find ways to easily manage the many intricacies of work and family life gently and easily.

* I allowed  my husband to drive me and my son to his school.  We then did something we have not done together often since our son was born, my husband and I returned to feeling as light and free as teenagers, as we took an early morning swim together in the glittering emerald waters of Benirras beach.  I felt cheeky little tickles as fish nibbled my legs and announced their presence and, with no control over when we were leaving… I felt my mind quieten into a deep, blue, calm as I immersed myself in the waters and enjoyed the incredible majestic cliffs and rock formations, the morning light, the peace…

The rest of the day just flowed…. with a natural rhythm, from meetings and clients to lunch and emails.

And me? I softened, I felt myself enter this sacred feminine place that is gentler, more open, receptive, as I allowed others to take the actions necessary, which I did not try to control and which they, therefore, did with pleasure and with ease.

And as I descended further into this beautiful “softer” realm, my intuition became clearer, and I experienced many wonderful insights about other areas of my life that I need to “prune” this autumn, to purify and release, in order to conserve my energy and to secure more sacred, car-free, natural-letting-go time for me.

It was time to create some Autumn exhale time :0)

Join us for our Just Stop! Retreat in October and come share more of this surrendering-into-softness and enjoy the gentle new energy that can flow.

 

Thank you for reading! And have an amazing, go-with-the-flow day.
