“So when the world knocks at your front door,
clutch the knob and open on up,
running forward into its widespread greeting arms with your hands before you,
fingertips trembling though they may be.”
– Anis Mojgani
A couple of weeks ago, the phrase ‘shake the dust’ appeared in my world twice in one day, and it really resonated with me.
One was on the bumper sticker of my reflexologist’s car, and was a reference to this amazing video.
The other came from The Organic Sister, and may have been referencing the same video, though I am not sure.
Either way, the phrase has stuck with me and has been finding it’s way into my life.
Shake the Dust showed up as a custom flower essence blend from a friend.
Shake the Dust has meant taking my health journey to a deeper level and starting to see incredible change from the inside.
Shake the Dust taught me to start bringing more acceptance and compassion to the way I deal with difficult situations.
Shake the Dust appeared in my life yesterday as I started out vacuuming and ended up rearranging furniture (do you do that too?).
Shake the Dust was a walk outside, moving my body to release stagnant energy (the photo above is from my walk).
Shake the Dust is changing my life.
As you may have read, I recently found my way back to my yoga mat. For the last couple of practices, as I have re-entered the world after savasana, the word ‘light’ has come to mind.
I see ‘light’ as being very much connected to ‘shake the dust,’ for it is when we can release the old – the fear, the pain, the anger, the shame – that we can find the true light that we are and shine it into the world.
May you shine your light brightly into this world.
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
