Letting go of the old and.....

...Welcoming in the NEW.
I don't know about you but I always appreciate a fresh start. Doesn't matter what the situation is I am simply inspired by the idea that I can learn from the past and create a new more empowering future, no matter what.
So, what are you letting go of as 2009 comes to an end? My husband and I always take the time to list what our accomplishments of the year that is ending were, what were the top stories, what were our big lessons? Then we create what we see as being the Headlines for the coming year, like the front page of a paper. It is great fun, we laugh, we cry, we so enjoy the opportunity.
I invite you to try it.
When we create the Headlines for the coming year we are actually creating a context, a topic for the year that will help support our commitments and passions.
Thank you for a great year, Happy New Year!
Love, Terces

Living by Faith

I was thinking the other day how often I find myself living by evidence, even when I realize it I can't always intervene in my evidence way of life. Yet, I know, deep down inside myself that life lived by faith is what really calls to me. I have actually had lots of experiences in my life where I made choices and stepped out of my comfort zone living completely by faith and ALWAYS the outcome was MIRACULOUS. Yet still, here I am looking for evidence anyway.
What it takes for me to live by faith is simply trusting, keeping my attention on the perfection of everything and letting go of any and all expectations I might have.
One of the ways I interrupt my search for evidence is shifting my attention to all I have to be grateful for. I am always amazed at how quickly I return to the present moment and once again begin to notice who beautifully and perfectly I am provided for. I often find myself wondering .... what more evidence do I need?

Love, Terces

Trust and Surrender

December is here, we even have snow on the ground at the farm, not a normal occurrence. A couple of our farm family members have NEVER seen snow, certainly gets me present to the beauty of it. Amazing how I can fall asleep to the miracles all around me. Great to have a wake up call!
We are deep in the process of "birthing" Gracias Madre, what an exercise in trust and surrender I find ourselves in. While the process has required more money and more time than we could have imagined, and while I know it will be a beautiful expression of our celebration of the unconditional love that mothering is, I am challenged daily to let go and trust.
Where are you holding on? Where are you pushing for an outcome and not trusting the process you are in?
Great questions especially when I am so committed that we be our word with all the vendors, new employees and all those involved throughout our company, and yet, I can do and say all there is to do and say, I can support and encourage and ultimately what there is to do is trust and let go, knowing that this too is in God's hands, that this too is a perfect expression of the Divine.
Where can you let go today and invite yourself to trust more fully and surrender more deeply?
I love you.
