SHOW NOTES EPISODE 11:

Move with your own rhythm

 LISTEN ON iTUNES

This is a writing from my new book "Everything Changed When I Forgave Myself"

___________________

They all ask me:

What do you want to do with your life, Charlotte?

What do you want to be?

Where do you want to live?

 

I tilt my head to the other side, letting my eyes wander deep into theirs. I notice a soft touch of wind on my chin, grabbing hold of my hair. The sky is full of clouds, shifting and reshaping, making space to fill it up again.

 

What do you want to do with your life, Charlotte? Where do you want to live?

 

I’ve lived half my life in constant restriction. Restricting my body from growing, blooming, shaping, shifting. Restricting my heart from loving too much, feeling too much, hurting too deeply. I lived half my life restricting my surroundings, or restricted by my surroundings. Don’t go too far, don’t move too far, don’t leave the ground.

 

But my body is a temple and I was not born to live in chains. I stand on a mountain, in a forest, by the water, and I feel free. I feel free to breathe and move, flex and shape

and I let my chest open and close.

I let my eyes go and breath go and I feel the wind moving me, from within, and I let go.

 

What do you want to do with your life, Charlotte?

 

I want to move with no restrictions. I want to grow and flex and reshape, a little every day, and I want to listen to natural sounds, playing melodies in the air, and I want to close my eyes, believe in what I feel and I want to let this inner melody guide me. Move me. 

 

It’s like a melody moving me from the inside and when I listen closely enough I can hear it.

 

I want to live here, in this, in the guiding of my own inner rhythm and I want to be this: a force of nature moving wherever it feels right, and I want my life to be this: a temple of strength and grace, a torch in the night, a sacred space of healing.

 

 

Close your eyes.

Place your hand on your heart.

Do you hear it? 

What about now?

 

That’s your rhythm. Move with that.
