Direction: Finding One’s Way, Getting Lost (inspiration)

“Getting lost is just another way of saying ‘going exploring.”

~ Justina Chen Headley

“It was a good place for getting lost in, a city no one ever knew, a city explored from the neutral heart outward, until after many years, it defined itself into a jumble of clearings separated by stretches of the unknown, through which the narrowest of paths had been cut.” ~ V.S. Naipaul

Direction: Finding One’s Way, Getting Lost (GW)

I know for certain that some people in my life have a sense of what direction to take to reach a destination, when I feel invariably lost. My sense of orientation in the world is tenuous at best, but does seem sharper as I have gotten more connected to my body.

I am learning to be fully present in my body in each moment. Not future-tripping, not unloading luggage from the pains of my past—just trying to show up in each moment of my life and not write it off, ignore it or be too highly minded to think it mattered. Every moment matters. It adds up to a life. Some moments are easy to be present for. Being present to a lover’s insistent hand is easy. Recognizing where you have come from in relations to where you are now and on the larger scale of where you are in relation to your desired destination—that’s tricky. Decide to focus on where you are now and the best steps you can take to live your truest, most alive you in that moment. Now, what do you lean into to reach your destination?  Look for signs and landmark moments. Jot down notes from the road that may be helpful for you and/or others on the journey. Then lean into it. Trust your intuition and your inclinations. Namaste — GoodWitch

Direction: Finding One’s Way, Getting Lost (BW)

Not long ago a very cool friend wrote a piece about her love of deliberately getting lost on her way home, so she could discover new paths and routes to keep her journey fresh. What a great metaphor and brain retraining sort of exercise, not to mention I had been doing something similar around that time by necessity; a major intersection reconstruction was happening westbound of my house. I knew firsthand what she was talking about. This simple exercise really helps wipe off the cobwebs, ping and excite the body and shake up its memory, as well as helping you stay open to new ways to do old familiar things. A skill more of us could use in our comfortable lives. By the way, after living in my neighborhood for over a decade, I discovered that the new “long work around” route is actually a shorter cut to and from my major west side destinations — who’da thunk?, as well as a convenient good-to-know! Mostly getting lost with the purpose of finding new ways “home” is a stretchy elastic-conditioning I’m applying to other aspects of my daily living.

What areas do you need to “get lost” in in your life? What’s your go-to internal GPS system day to day? What rut could you stand getting out of with some openness and curiosity?  — BadWitch
