stones and permission
I have discovered that giving oneself permission to do something is a key step in the process of shifting and changing.
However, the experience of doing puts me in mind of how stones are tumbled. Its like this....
You put the permission thought in your head. Its feels all rough and odd-edged because it doesn't fit. So your brain rolls it about and thinks on it. Little bits of it slough off and the edges get a bit smoother as you figure out what giving permission might mean and what kinds of impact it might have on your life.
And the more you push, prod, roll, the more the idea of giving yourself permission seeps into your spirit.
