Grace in the Face….


Do you recognize love when it is coming at you? When kindness, compassion or grace is extended in your direction are you a receiver? Or are you a suspicious type - one who relies on the skepticism of the ego to keep you safe? – safe from connecting with others – safe from being authentic – safe from being vulnerable – safe from the ‘assault’ of love.

Take a moment and ask yourself what would life look like if instead of safety, today I chose to risk? Choose to believe that the people you encounter want nothing from you, choose to believe that you are supported, uplifted and enhanced by every connection you create and nurture with another.

How would our lives be different if we acted with grace in the face of love? How would the world be different? I would hazard a guess that there would be less bombs going off, less hate crimes, less intolerance, less racism, less of the ego’s rant that tells us we are separate and special.

Do yourself a favour and resolve to find out what your life will look like as an expression of grace – there are infinite numbers of opportunities every day, every hour, every minute to create grace, to receive love and to accept others and ourselves as perfect and connected and ready for the love that is waiting around ever single corner….go on, get out there and grab some!

Much Love,
Alison

What does it mean to be Healthy?

Being healthy means that I have enough energy to do what I want with my day and my night and to be able to carry out these tasks pain free. Physical health, that is.

Creating a level of physical health to meet my daily requirements is a priority for me right now. Spending the last few days in bed, and being completely drained of energy has been a powerful motivator. I can’t imagine how nuts I would be if I couldn’t move around freely and come and go as I please.

I am so grateful for my current state of health, for my ability to see what is necessary and for the mobility to be able to do something about it. I am grateful for support received from all my amazing friends and family who wish only the best for me and I am grateful to my wonderful self who has an amazing life to live here and so many to help as I share my journey.

Gratitude and Health go hand in hand, they influence, attract and create each other.

Cheryl Richardson (@coachoncall) said this morning that a “high quality life has more to do with what you REMOVE from your life than what you ADD to it”. So I am asking myself today, what am I ready to let go of to BE Healthy?

Stay tuned for answers and post your own for support, inspiration or if you simply feel like sharing.

Abundant Love and Health to All,

Alison
