Today I posted the details for my online class that is happening next Wednesday, January 8th at 5:30pm-7pm MST. You can go to the resources page if you'd like to join in for that. The topic is Awakening the Urge to Express. Here is the event description:
"Often we're taught to suppress or control urges, impulses, and desires. They've often been framed in a negative light or deemed to be bad or even dangerous. However, for many of us, now is the time to truly awaken our urges, impulses and desires, and recognize that we have these extremely beneficial ones, such as the urge or desire to express, to love, to create, to innovate, to take care of and to celebrate life. Without them fully available life becomes dull and stagnant.
With the urge to express, love and create being squelched or sedated, we often don't have the oomph to really live. As much as we want to be joyful, prosperous and abundant there's often this invisible drag or weight that keeps us feeling like it's unattainable or inaccessible, unless we find a way to override it with force or effort, which our hearts will no longer let us do.
Is now the time for you to awaken your urge to express?
Is now the time to know what your purity of heart, crystal clear mind and radiant body can actually offer to the world?
Let's access that raw power born of love and wisdom. Are you in?"
So, as an invitation for day 2 of Self-Care, I invite you to ask yourself these questions and explore your current relationship to your impulses, urges and desires. For many of us we learned to control them and were even rewarded or praised for our ability to do so. Our ability to be composed, not impulsive, and to think through things and use reason to determine our course of action, can be named as virtuous. As we have access to this field and frequency of love, we no longer have to rely on control based strategies to live well or be appropriate.
As our consciousness shifts, we can evolve the strategies. We can develop love-based strategies to guide our expression. In other words, in a field and frequency of love these urges, impulses and desires may show up in new ways and reflect our deepest yearnings to love and be loved. We may be able to more easily access the impulse to care for ourselves and the people, places and things in our life. I'm curious about what is actually innate, natural and spontaneous for us that has simply been unavailable in fear-based environments? What can the cultivation of love-based environments inspire in each of us? If you are unfamiliar with these terms you're welcome to read my blogs: Is it Time to Graduate from Fear Based Learning? and Activating Love Based Motivation. Two other of my blogs called Love Based Attention and Love Based Creation are also good ones to check out. May our deepest desires, impulses, urges and yearnings find there way to the field and frequency of love so they can be seen for what they truly are, and supported to be expressed, to benefit and enrich all life!
