Day 6. Very late.


1. How the event went today being us all 3 together. I connected with my friend and thats the most important thing. Anything else is out of my hands. I felt some things when being around her but the ice was broken and its all a step towards whatever is the best for all os us. We all manned up and thats great.

2. The girl i spoke to today. I was thinking about her a lot a few years ago and there she was and we finally connected. Could be interesting to talk more with her and meet her again. And knowing this is all energy and consciousness, its going to happen. She was real cute. 

3. How i seem to be closing stuck energies with people all around me. My mother recently and now an old friend who slept with my girlfriend many years ago. I didnt care about it at all anymore but was feeling a lot of love in the moment and he decided to talk about it and it just felt like another thing going full circle.

4. How much i am in love with what is happening right now. So great. Things are happening the way they are supposed to, no doubt about that. I have a lot of faith (yes i do, im holding it in my hand!) and it feels amazing.

5. How thinking about my mother feels different and aligned and wholesome after our talk. I can cry and i really see her now. She has done her best all ways. Okay maybe im a little drunk.

6. The orange i am going to eat and the smoothie before going to eat. 

7. How awesome alignment feels. "my" movements are different, i speak louder and it all just comes out naturally. Even though all these things challenges me i feel so grateful and i can see how all of the is just there to grow me. Even the situation with the girl today. At one point i was shying a bit back and feeling some stuff but remembered that its all just more of the same and its just another thing to grow out of. Its love showing me the freedom i am going for. So grateful for that.

8. The clothes i wore today. Looking great thaaaanks.

9. My good friend and his girlfriend and how we connected being out. 

10. How everything makes sense when you feel great. Just one important moment after the next.
