Breaking Open

Breaking Open

Breaking Open

Not long after our return from our Soul Food Journey to the UK, I had what I’m calling a breaking open.

A parking cop was in the process of giving us a ticket for the scooter and I managed to talk her out of it. No small feat in San Miguel 😁. I then proceeded to hurry to leave the parking spot. Turning to exit on the three wheeled scooter, I caught a big yellow metal road divider with my front left wheel and went down breaking my collarbone.

And boy, did grace show up.

I jumped to my feet.  Right away, a man ran out and picked up the bike for me. David came out immediately. A good friend who is also a physician had been sitting with us, checked me out and he and his wife drove me to the local hospital for an x-ray, while David road the scooter home and picked up our car. Another doctor friend called one of the best orthopedic surgeons anywhere, and he met me within 10 minutes of arrival in his clinic 45 minutes away.

So only five hours after the accident, I was in surgery. A titanium plate was installed, and I awoke from surgery as if I had been in a lovely sleep.

What is the breaking open you might ask? (other than my collarbone 😁)

  1. A Greater Connection to the Divine

Three weeks into what will be a several month healing process I’ve necessarily given myself time to rest. In that state of openness, I feel a greater connection to the divine source that is always with me.

2. Receiving More

And I’ve had to open up my ability to receive even more. David has lovingly assisted helping me get dressed, wash my hair and of course prepare fantastic food. And dear friends and neighbors have brought food, flowers and sent lovely notes.

3. Loving Stillness Everyday

At the moment,  I cannot physically do things I might otherwise be doing. And I need rest to assist the healing. There is a stillness in that rest, in just being, that is some of the soul food I need.

4. Allowing the Divine to Lead

I’ve been really focused on getting myself out of the way to allow spirit/the divine/source to lead. I couldn’t have used my will to make what happen run as smoothly and easily as it did. The shock I experienced necessitated that something other than my will prevail.  Grace is relentless and always available no matter what the circumstances.

5. A Greater Feeling of Gratitude 

In the deepening of gratitude for all the love from friends and the Divine, my soul has been deeply fed. What a terrific blessing a broken collarbone can be, don’t you think?

 

In love and gratitude,

Susan

Soul Food Pilgrimage

SOUL FOOD PILGRIMAGE

We’re back from our soul nourishing pilgrimage to England and Scotland! The trip was a profound evolution for us.

We now understand that everyone’s life is a pilgrimage and we each need soulful nourishment — Soul food —  to thrive.

One aspect of Soul food comes from sacred places where people have been pilgrims for a long time. We traveled to places in England and Scotland where people have been pilgrims for thousands of years.

The trains carried us from London to Cornwall to Iona in the north. And friends old and new nourished our hearts.

 

 

 

 

We have all done amazing personal work to transform ourselves. And we knew that in ourselves and for those we work with that something was missing.

Have you noticed that no matter how much personal work you’ve done that there is an underlying hunger for something more?

Defining what our souls need to stay strong and well-nourished is what Wisdom Rx will be focusing on in the coming months. We each have a unique recipe for the soul food that will keep us truly connected to source, so that we don’t have to be starving in the journey of our lives.

You Are Not a Formula

You are not a formula

You are Not a Formula

You, the life you are, cannot truly live inside the confines of a formula.

Formulas can help us understand why things are the way they are. A formula takes something and breaks it down into its component pieces, so that we can understand how a number of independent parts come together to create an outcome.

Yet, any formula that becomes a lifestyle will limit Life. 

Life becomes formulaic not fluid.

It’s true, a recipe for bread is a formula but there are many variables that can affect a loaf. In making a loaf of bread, the oven, altitude, ingredients, human attention and more affect the outcome. In truth, no two loaves of bread are alike.

We searched Personal growth formulas on google and it spit out over two million references. That’s quite a few formulas to learn and grow by.

Formula’s like The Enneagram or Human Design  can have great value in terms of assisting someone’s personal growth. However, if one frames their perception of themselves or others exclusively, constantly through one of those lenses, they and everyone around them will become stuck inside a frame missing the wholeness of life.

It is critically important to know when to drop a formula and be present to what is. Sometimes applying a formula to a circumstance takes away from what is really going on. We can become blinded by formula and miss the powerful truth unfolding itself in front of us or within us.

We like to apply formulas to life and we think the formula is life. The formula is dead. It’s only meant as a tool for understanding, not to live by.

Formulas for personal growth were always designed as stepping stones to take us from one state of being toward another. If we keep living in the same formula of perception, we will create a repeat pattern of life resulting in frustration maintaining the presence of old wounds.

So, we invite you have some fun with these questions-

  • How many formulas are you living by?
  • Are they serving you?
  • Is it time to surrender your formulas and trust the un-formulaic miraculous within you to create your life.

We’d love to hear from you. Please share below.

Healing My Inner Jackal

Healing My Inner Jackal

I’ve always had a passion for children’s literature that told about faraway places and magical worlds. These treasures were my lifeboat when I was young. Immersed in a book, I felt I was soaring through lands where anything was possible.  So, I decided to write my own.

And my inner jackal began nipping at my heels.  Saying, “you’ve never written a children’s book before, what makes you think you can?” Or the one that remembers all the times a teacher returned my assignments with what was “wrong” without encouragement.

Do you know what it’s like to hear the jackal inside you?  The one’s who says you’re not good enough, don’t know enough, aren’t capable?

We each have an inner jackal nipping at our heels trying to keep us from evolving into the amazing beings we truly are.

Whenever my jackal arose, I looked it in the eye and said, “it’s okay, I love this story more than I fear your judgment beloved jackal.”  So, I wrote and wrote and asked for feedback and wrote some more.  Through love and action, I’m healing my inner jackal.

My book, Not So Little Cora is now in the hands of a superb writer, editor and dear friend Will Wilkinson, who is lovingly honing my story to make it sing.

Will has a new book called, Now or Never: A Time Traveler’s Guide to Personal and Global Transformation. I hope you’ll read it, for we share the same intention- to help create a thriving future for our children.
I’ve spent my lifetime preparing for now.  Each of us has.  We are all at a precipice where we can either rest in the status quo of our lives or courageously risk living our true heart’s desire.
As a dear friend of David’s said to him, “what have you got to lose?”

He answered, “nothing.” And the actions he took completely changed his life.

I’ll let you know when Not So Little Cora is available. She’s a wise little being who loves life and hasn’t lost connection with her inborn spirit.

We’d love to hear your response.

Time to Surrender

It’s time to surrender our Will and be lead by the Divine.

There are many ways we protect ourselves from the greatness of life and possibilities that surround us. One way is by creating negative self-fulfilling prophecies that block our divine expression.

We have seen what happens when we create negative self-fulfilling prophecies, the kind where you have a bad feeling in your gut and some form of negative outcome comes true.

What negative self-fulfilling prophecies are running inside you that have been let loose and never ended that are in the way of your connection to your sacred blueprint and the rich passionate abundant and creative life you know is possible?

Have you had an imagined fear or a negative belief that you let run the show?

These negative self-fulfilling prophecies feel like a subtle friction that show up as a form of doubt where we forget about our sacred connection.

What can we do to move beyond that friction?

We can choose to call in a blessing to the noisy self -destructive negative creative patterns that cause us to stumble and feel like we can’t get to the state of the most loving and exciting vision of our lives.

Feel these places of friction, doubt and imaginary fear where there is no evidence to back it up. When you feel into those places and that line of energy and honor their presence then say the following prayer.

Prayer for Ending Negative Self Fulfilling Prophecies

As you address the fear say:

“Bless You and No More- I declare these energies to be complete and ask that these systems be replaced with love, wholeness, and holiness once again within me where the sacredness of this body comes home to itself.

Unlimited by my willfulness on this day, in this moment, I surrender my will in all the ways I protect myself from the greatness of life that surrounds me.

I release my will to reunite with the godhead, our Father, Mother, God. I let go and allow my love to prevail within me all the way to my cellular, electrical and structural fields.

I ask this for the highest good of all concerned. And to all of my ancestors I extend this blessing the reuniting of the holy of holies I am experiencing for it is my true birthright to be reunited with the source of all life, holy of holies, God, the Divine.

I offer this as a gift to all beings connected to me wherever they may be and whatever form they are in.

I take this breath now knowing that the spirit of resurrection comes within me and I rise up and step away from the deadness I have carried thinking it was my life.”

In love,

David and Susan

Why a Beauty Retreat?

Tree in Pyramid

Last week we visited the Pyramid Cañada de la Virgen an Otomi site a half hour outside of San Miguel. This moment of the life force of Beauty in nature was deeply moving to us both.

Extending Holiday Offer into 2017-Awakening Into Beauty Retreat

We are extending our Holiday Offer for the Awakening Into Beauty Retreat because we feel that Beauty is the necessary energy needed at this time in the world.

The response to the Awakening Into Beauty retreat is heartening. Some have said they are so grateful we are doing this because they really need it and San Miguel is an inspirational setting.

In another conversation, as a friend asked “Why would the Beauty Retreat change my life and make it better?”

Here is our answer.

Beauty is not just an idea, it’s a living energy that wants to dance us. It connects us to the greater life we are and that surrounds us and allows possibility to unfold in our lives.

Through the processes we have designed each person will see and feel the ways they have conditioned or edited their connection to beauty. You will liberate your heart, your sacred intelligence to be in creative union with the life force beauty is.

Why?

When we have distanced ourselves from beauty our lives begin to shrink. We begin to feel that we are slaves to our lives rather than creators who are free and sovereign.

Through the lens of beauty, you can have curiosity and joy, even in the midst of challenging times. You will leave with a renewed connection to the greater life you so that you can allow new opportunities, relationships and abundance to occur in ways you could not engineer.

At Wisdom Rx, we know this really works because we’re doing this. If beauty and curiosity are not present in our lives real transformative healing is slowed down or doesn’t happen so Come and Transform through Beauty with us.

We love journeying with you,

David and Susan
