Happy dance!

I finished my first “real” post on goals over at FollowYourLight.com last night after a three day birthing process.

Five days were needed to shift out of my head into more of the flow. The odd bout of procrastination didn’t help either.

What didn’t escape me was the difference between the MAP writings and trying to communicate an idea – perfectly.


With autonomic writing I step to the side and let things flow.  Something similar happens with speaking.

But put “pen to paper”  to express my ideas for all to see and everything screeches to a slow, slogging crawl.

The mind seizes any opportunity to throw niggling obstacles in the way.


The writing will move further into flowing as I let go. The slogging is simply a signal to step back rather than a hurdle to overcome.


Notes to self:

There is no perfect way to say anything. I don’t need to make a point or be convincing.

But the ideas do need to be put out there for someone to consider them.

Putting energy in motion is far more important than having a destination.

Usually when I start to veer off track I feel gentle nudges steering me back on course. Something along the lines of bumper bowling.

After ignoring those nudges for a few weeks, the bumper pads turned into the walls of a narrow passage that had no give whatsoever to them.

Everything I tried to do in order to move in the direction I thought was forward, was met with heavy slogging, resistance and a severe loss of inspiration.

If I wasn’t going to pay attention then I was going to be made to pay attention.

As soon as I started taking away the things tugging at my focus I could feel the path ahead open up once again. Inspiration and energy are coming back too.


Seems I’m not the only one experiencing this narrowing of the path for our own good. The inherent message is “time to get on with it. The time for fooling around with distractions is gone. This way please.”

If you feel like you’re in an uphill battle or nothing is going your way, step back and take a look where your energy and attention is focused.

Are you busying yourself with “other stuff” instead of getting on with it, even if you don’t know what “it” is?


The important piece right now is not to know what “it” is, but to stop being busy and creating distractions. Create some space and openings for yourself. Murky waters will become clear.
