Okay...this weekend I'm with my sister and sister-in-law on Orcas Island. We always have an amazing time with Lenore's bead collection, as she encourages us to create new bracelets or necklaces to our heart's content.
Problem is, now I know that as a type 4, a much different style suits me, and my old standby sensibilities don't work anymore. So my old habits of being drawn to sparkly and long and flourishes and movement are getting in my way! As a type 4, I look so much better now in clear, clean, bold and direct designs without any of the frills. Think Classic elegant...cool, simple...stylized, straight lines. And it's working!!! I am getting so many comments about the energy shift people are seeing when I "show up" in alignment with the energy that I truly am. No longer are people confused by seeing me dressed as a soft subtle flow-y type, when really I just want to get to the point, get clear, and get results.
Erika, on the other hand, seems to have gracefully made her transition into the long flowing nature of her essential energy. She is bringing in her love of nature into everything she chooses, including determining which of the bazillion beads she has access to fit into the perfect necklace design for her.
Not so easy for me.
But I did engage my love of magic and silent reflection by designing a new bracelet to facilitate a new spiritual practice for myself. And it is stunningly gorgeous. Black, white, silver....calm, cool, still. I adore it. And with my sister's own handwriting etched into it, it's a constant reminder that whenever I show up as my essential energy, she is with me, sharing my journey.
I'd love to hear more about YOUR journey too....so please feel free to comment on this or anything else you've been unfolding for yourself along the way.
