“Our lives are based on our foundational beliefs. Like a house built on sand if our foundations are shaky we need to sweep them away and start again.” … Susanne
There is nothing like trying to find a new house to live in to really point out what your foundations are made of. No matter how much healing you’ve done … no matter how many layers that you’ve cleared out and no matter how much debris the Celestial Clean-up Crew has helped you to haul away … looking to change one’s place of residence very quickly points out any and all pebbles, rocks, tree branches or general mess that you’ve missed.
Our foundations are made up of the lessons that we plucked out past experiences … the good (or not-so-good) interactions that we shared with others … and our perceptions from way back when we were children … of why-things-are-the-way-that-they-are and what … if anything … we can do about that. Our little kid eyes watch everything. Our little kid ears take in everything that we hear. And our little kid brains process it all and then cast those ideas into the concrete of “belief”.
These last couple of weeks I have had the dubious privilege of jack-hammering apart those childhood concrete blocks … releasing misunderstandings and encrusted old self-doubts … and donating bags and bags of really old What-If’s to the Universal Recycling Center. Miss Perky is breathing a huge sigh of relief. She says that all of that noise and water-works were starting to really strain her ability to maintain her Perk. I get that! Thankfully … judging by the positive shifts in my house hunting results … I think that my new path may finally be ready to begin. Capital “L” Life is smiling. Miss Perky is giggling again. Ms Sunshine is importing a caseload of snazzy, new eyewear … and me … well … I’m looking forward to building my exciting new life.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
