Don't read unless you want to share the heart of my challenging August

... kinetic light sculpture Tensegrity by Improbable Construction at Lux 2015, Wellington ...

Last week I found myself void, empty, nothing to say. So you didn't hear from me. This week I do have a heart to share, but will make no attempt to wrap this post around 'something you can use'. Only to share the parts of my recent journey I think can be of interest and useful to you, and hope you sense the kind of quiet solidity I am finding in the dark ...

If life is a mixed bag, why do we throw half of it away?

... cold winter day's end ... sunlight and showers ... light and dark ...

What's happening when you search for answers and keep facing yourself and your healing process for weeks and months and years? When you can see the core deep healing you're creating, even as you cry because it's raw and there's no other way to do it; it's buried so deep it takes great pressure to make the old wound visible and available for healing. And it takes so long!

Is that kind of journey a bad thing? Is there something wrong?

for those who seek order in chaos

... you are the order in your own chaos ...

Your world, your life, your human experience, it's all about contrast. Shadings of light and dark, some subtle, some so strong they take your breath away. It does maddy's head in, that such diversity of experience is happening all at once, all the time. But this is your magnificence as human beings! And believe it or not, it's also your service ...

It's easy to rewrite your self-fulfilling prophecy once you know what it is!

... frothy flowers on an unusual Buddleia tree in my neighbourhood ...

We are ensyth and we have watched maddy these last few days, as she struggles with deeply held expectation and experience. Realises how she creates all of it for herself, how it is self perpetuating, and how at last, having seen it, she can step out of it. As can you ...

Comfort for the dark night of the soul

... our solstice thoughts for you, and our midwinter sunset ...

We know this soft unknowing night which once held terror. There's so much 'not knowing' in the human experience. But we invite you to rest deeper, softer, warmer, in the multitude layers of other experience you hold and remember and feel, tantalisingly, just beyond what your intellect can accept and understand ...

How I'm finding safety in the inscrutable and delicate pattern of failure and loss

... the glory of nacreous clouds at sunset ...

On 1 July 2014, after 5 months' intense preparation I launched into the telesummit industry. My launch failed. After another year, 3 more telesummit interviews, 2 new packages and a monumental amount of work I'm still failing, and I now consider I have enough evidence to support my decision to stop ...

Message for the fearful and the courageous (one and the same)

... with love from ensyth-maddy, who must constantly practice letting go ... the image is of neon light on the Hutt River at dusk ...

beloved, we wish you this freedom, which maddy is slowly and sometimes with difficulty embracing for her own.

she gets better at remembering the flow has carried her safely this far, and carries her still. blinded by waves and rapids and spray, fearful of dangers seen and hidden alike ...

How to run long distance Abundance events - and win!

... I got my beloved to photograph a few yoga poses so I could send them to my sponsored child in Kenya, this one is called Full Moon ...

Imagine in the last 7 weeks you've completed what feels like 2 long hard legs of an IronMan Abundance triathlon, and there's still another leg to do. And you know the moment it's over another starter's gun will fire. Because the process never ends, right?

How to keep going? And what's really involved in surviving, even thriving on the journey, and coming out with something to show for it?

How to find your way when you’re abundantly lost in space

... cloud and contrast at dusk over Newlands, Wellington ... image ...

At the end of March everyone and everything went away and I found myself feeling strangely forsaken and deeply frustrated. Then my body threw a curve-ball which knocked me further into outer space ... and deep confusion. All of which allows me to offer a tool you can use to help navigate your own scary mirror mazes, to connect with your peace and clarity again.
