“The Way of The Shoe” ~ “When you can’t find the other shoe ~ let it go!”

July 12, 2012

What I recently learned – again – pay attention to how my life is moving… when it is effortless, flowing all is in order….. However when it is challenging, perplexing, feels like going against the flow… let it go.. if not then be grateful for the opportunity to embrace change. Embracing the change of new patterns, letting go of all familiar ways and recalibrating to new…

This came to me in “the way of the shoe. I was perplexed while looking for a sneaker, I had the one in the closet & couldn’t understand why it’s mate was not with it.. This led me to clean out the bedroom closet, and then the hall closet… aha! I finally found it.  A perfect pair to wear as I begin a new regime of “morning walks,” excited about the evening walk I had also planned. A new pattern for me, feels good! So I thought ~ Full of vigor I proceeded to walk with my morning partner, but 30 min into to the walk my heels began to burn, so I let me heels free & continued to walk, hmmm.. next take off a sock…. By the end of the walk –uh-oh… feet are burning.. giant blisters formed on my heels and one on the bottom of the sockless foot… ugh.. no walking tonight!  Needless to say when I got home I trashed those sneakers.

My clean out continued.. drawers, closets, storage places… The principles of Feng Shui show us that our closets, drawers, storage areas are our subconscious… when we begin to get into these spaces, we are beginning to connect to our inner self.. what lies hidden. It is not always easy to change our patterns, patterns we have developed over our lifetime or even a portion of our lives.

Awareness is key to helping us navigate along our journey. “The way of the shoe” reminded me, that when you hang on to something that needs to let go, it impedes your ability to move forward.

So, the next time you can’t find that other shoe….
………………. let it go and buy yourself a new pair to step into!

It only takes a moment to become inspired,
Sometimes the things we least expect bring our brightest inspiration”
