The guidance I wish for is not easily containable with words.
Let’s start with a story.
This past Saturday I facilitated a writing group. I lead all sorts of zany exercises, as I so often do, and then I offered up the space for collaborative facilitation: the prompting came from the participants on their time on their terms with me being completely equal except I was still timing things and if there wasn’t movement I stood up and moved things, as it felt necessary.
In the process, I had an enormous a-ha about some work I need to do OR RATHER a different aspect of my Body of Work.
I wasn’t expecting it.
And the words I wrote, repeatedly, included phrases like, “There is no map for this journey,” when what is more like it is, “There is no guide for this journey…” Well, at least not a guide that is a cookie-cutter Sherpa or a “Fit A into B and voila! You will have Z!” attendant, all squeaky clean and strait from Stepford.
I don’t wish for guidance like that, anyway.
That isn’t remotely the cloth I am cut from in the first place although convention SEEMS so comfortable for most people.
The guidance I wish for is loosely structured and shared. I imagine tag-team guidance from people I love wearing “God’s skin”. In other words, trusting in some form of Divinity (or Universal Love, Goddess, nature, Source). I don’t have that much caring or cut-and-dried must be this religion or that anymore.
I wish for guidance who will flow with the process without trying to fit it into a particular puzzle piece or something that can be labeled or said, “Oh, I know this tune” because the song I am singing has not be sung before and will not be sung again.
I wish for loving, compassionate "here with me in this here and now" guidance. I wish for loved ones who will float along with me, protecting me if they see something I don't but primarily being a witness rather than a guide, a fellow traveler coming alongside.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also....
So many blessings,
