It is interesting what we find when we make room for the new to come in. I have been consistently opening channels in myself since June of last year. I stopped smoking for the first time in June 2010 and that opened up a huge channel inside of me. It sounds very strange to those who don’t believe in such things but I do believe. I believe when you clear away any sort of clutter you invite new experiences to come into your world.
I have been writing more than I have written in years since December of 2010. This is both a blessing and a curse. I will be lying by the pool and soaking up the sunshine and a verse comes to mind and I am compelled to abandon my peaceful sun worship and run into the darkened room that is lit only by the computer screen and typing ensues. Or I grab my trusty notebook and pen the lines at the kitchen counter lest I forget the words that are fleeting sometimes. This channel has been opened in my world and I give credit to relinquishing the dirty habit of smoking that so took over me for so many years.
Oh, there have been many experiences that have come my way as a result of opening up pathways in myself. I have started running and continued since last June. I am not always consistent but it is something I enjoy and love very much. The rhythm of my feet hitting the pavement or asphalt, the pain I feel when I finish, the lovely endorphins that take over and clear my brain and intoxicate me. I love the whole process of running, from beginning to end. It is one of my drugs of choice. The first of drug of choice in my world is sex. But that I will leave for another entry.
