how are you doing?
As you probably already know, I am a big fan of nature. I spend time outdoors as often as possible. It's where and when I feel the most connected to the Universe, to the Whole, or whatever you want to call it: the Source, the Energy Field, the Matrix, God, the Supra-consciousness, etc.
Snow has arrived already in the mountains where I live and I must admit I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand I love snow, I love seeing infinite and clean white spaces, and entire trees covered with this magical powder. I am mesmerised like a kid, I want to make a snow angel and a snowman :-)
However the last snow here (in Jura) fell on May 8... So it's only been 6 months... And I am totally lost in my calendar, thinking that we are already mi-December (which shows how conditioned we are, but that's a topic for another day!) And I also love the variety of seasons and Autumn colours - which have already disappeared under a huge white coat...
Anyway, then I start breathing, I pay attention to all this snow that is falling from the sky and gradually takes over everything. It calls for respect. It brings silence, peace and a sort of cleansing.
And as I look at the trees, the fields, the forest, the mountains more carefully, I realise they have completely surrendered to it; well it's not as if they could move hahah. But as we know, they will adapt, transform, follow the flow, without resistance, without tension.
It's so powerful. Nature's strength comes from this: its capacity to surrender to the present moment. Whether it's raining, snowing, hailing, whether it's sunny, windy, warm or cold, life goes on, everything is here, cycle after cycle, transformation after transformation: cleansing, losing one skin, getting another one, births, deaths, renewals, rebirths, etc.
Always so powerful, so magical. And if we can relate to this, without resisting, without feeling tense, without complaining, without feeling scared each time life redirects us on a different path from the one we wanted or imagined... Then we can see and acknowledge inside us this same pattern, this same power! The Supra-consciousness, the Universe, etc is inside everyone of us. We are also able to live plenty of different experiences, not only great and happy ones, but also terribly difficult ones; what i have noticed is that difficult things tend to move on faster when we don't resist, when we surrender and accept.
In any case I would like to invite you to take a few breaths and become aware of the miracle that you are... Honour yourself and everything that you've been through, that you've experienced, overcome, and learnt along the way, everything that makes you who you are. Well done!
And if you'd like to treat yourself to a great gift to go further on your transformational journey, I'd like to invite you to make an appointment with me, to spend 2 days in immersion in a beautiful chalet in St-Cergue, 45 min from Geneva, in a magical place, surrounded with nature and mountains, in an ideal environnement to support inner work and development, to solve your biggest frustration, using the Laughing Butterfly method.
