Beginnings can be delicate or explosive. They can start almost invisibly or arrive with a big bang. Beginnings hold the promise of new lessons to be learned, new territory to be explored and old lessons to be recalled, practiced, and appreciated. Beginnings hold ambiguity, promise, fear, and hope. Don't let the lessons, the experiences of the past; dampen your enthusiasm for beginnings. Just because it's been hard doesn't mean it will always be that difficult. Don't let the heartbreaks of the past cause you to become cynical and close you off to life's magic and promise. Open yourself wide to all that the universe has to say.

Begin anew. Pack your bags choosing carefully what you bring, because packing is an important ritual. Take along some humility and the lessons of the past. Toss in some curiosity and excitement about what you haven't yet learned. Don't worry who you will meet or where you will go. The way has been prepared. The people you are to meet will be expecting you. A new journey has begun. Let it be magical. Let it unfold. Go on your own journey. Don't let others hold you back. Don't let them judge you.

Everyone is free to have the experiences their souls lead them to. Many of us started our journey by having the experiences others thought we should. Some of us tried to dictate the lessons and adventures of others too. This caused pain and confusion for all. Learning those lessons, the lessons of setting each other free became an important part of our journey.

Go where the heart leads. Your soul knows the way. It will speak quietly thorugh the voice of your heart, your intuition. Listen to the voice that assures you that you are safe. You will learn from everone along the way. Dont limit your own experiences nor those of whom you love nor those you meet along the way.
