Release the need for Certainty
This week we explored the theme of Intuition and Faith in our daily sessions. Bloom Pause is a community offering that meets remotely using Zoom. Each week we explore a new theme through discussion, sharing, meditation, and practices to improve daily life. If you'd like to join Bloom Pause, sign up here.
"Intuition is not a single way of knowing - it's our ability to hold space for uncertainty and our willingness to trust the many ways we've developed knowledge and insight, including instinct, experience, faith, and reason.""Faith is a place of mystery, where we find the courage to believe in what we cannot see and the strength to let go of our fear of uncertainty... the opposite of faith is not doubt, it's certainty."
Pause with me today to discuss this important topic.
I also offer heartfelt appreciation to our Bloom group's daily and weekly meetings since May. I feel immense gratitude for this space especially during this critical time of Covid and the election. I will continue offering Bloom Pause, though starting this week, I am shifting the schedule to Mondays and Wednesdays. Mondays will continue with a short meditation then discussion centered on a topic. I will continue through to complete the 10 guideposts from Brene' Brown's book the Gifts of Imperfection. And, Wednesdays will continue as an offering for a clearing practice. I will be starting other offerings in the coming months including a Bloom Abundance ... stay tuned.
I offer the serenity prayer as the suggested practice:
In Bloom Unity,
"God/HP (higher power), grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
