Scene: chatting with Erica Hitt Ostaszewski, about a year ago. She used that phrase to describe how she felt after one of More To Life’s processes. I liked it, I wrote it down, and now I know why.
The Gift of the Shift. We all know what that’s like. Even though nothing external has changed one whit, WE have shifted. The shift may or may not be visible to an outsider’s view, but our outlook is different and something does “feel shifted” physically – like something has been released and a new awareness has taken its place.
I’ve been working on my ego for a looooooong time. As I get sharper about its presence, it mutates like a flu virus, getting sneakier, which requires me to wake up even more, shift into greater awareness of its ever more subtle workings.
Truthfully I was making it hard work, intensely determined to undermine its effect in my life.
New scene: chatting with Rafa Berriorchoa a few months ago. During our conversation, it dawned on me that I could shift my intention to oust my ego from very intense determination to lightness of being – WOW!
(except for when it does)
The Gift of the Shift – gratitude for my ego, illuminating what to unload next, in essence, a spiritual dump.
