Hmmm . . . yet another Explorer. What’s up with that? Well, by my definition Explorers reflect the “young adult” energy of exploring one’s options, heading out on a quest, looking for adventure, testing oneself.
How does that apply to me right now? Last week I kept those fiery spinning orbs crazily swinging, yet managed to hold fast to my center. This week, I’m wrapping up details of work for clients as I prepare to make a journey to the east coast to see my beloved family, including my grandbaby Grace. The week after that, I’ll visit friends in Brooklyn then it’s off to the Readers Studio. An adventure to be sure!
The young woman in the image is a tracker, someone who intimately knows the ways of the forest and its creatures. As she examines the earth for animal tracks, she looks up quickly when she hears a bird make an alarm call. What does the bird signal? Will she notice the rare white deer behind her?
Even so — how am I intimately connected to the natural world, and what might I be missing?
When I look at this image, I feel a sense of loss. I’m not spending nearly as much time outside as I used to. I tell myself it is because I have much less unstructured time than I had a few years back, which is true. And yet that is my choice, is it not? I am choosing to put my energies in different places.
And yet I am exploring a different kind of earth energy — the earth energy of finances and business — as I work with Elizabeth Genco Purvis in her Abundant Business Mastermind group. I’ve had such grievous financial losses over the last year that I am determined to increase my income, make up for those losses, and experience abundance in my financial life.
And yet, and yet . . . on this fine Spring morning, the woods are calling my name . . .
And what about you, dear Reader? What does the Explorer of Earth say to you?
