I have many threads of abundance surrounding me. Exciting potentials, sometimes waiting on this, seeking more collaboration, or just limited with the available hours…. sometimes hurdles are an approval, a date on a linear calendar, an assurance from deep time……a reluctance to push when nice girls are told ‘wait your turn’….
I am getting more insightful about what I control, what I influence and what is up to others (including the universe)…..
Something that is in my realm of control is this website. Tried to engage a friend from a long time ago to ‘do the website’….after a little wriggle and squirm it landed back with me…..
And I’m grateful…it means it’s relevancy and function sits squarely with moi
nervous giggle, deep breath….. here goes as I listen to Jeff Buckley……sweet, melancholy awareness of growth….
I remember reading this sentence before I became a Wayapa practitioner and thinking….WTF???
Rewarded to have a linear concept of time, and with a scant appreciation for all the nests we find ourselves within…it just didn’t make sense.
Fast forward a few years and we find ourselves globally to be in the Great Pause of Covid….a forced disconnection we are all navigating in different ways.
While Covid is doing some of the heavy lifting of disconnecting, or staying in the PJs all day (at least on the bottom) it is landing on us all differently. It is highlighting some beautiful ways of knowing, being and doing that inspire me as part of our species.
We live in special and sometimes challenging times (when is this not true!).
Our greatest opportunity during this Great Pause is to reflect and find the internal and external resources to recalibrate how we are in the world – our systems of knowing, being and doing are calling for a spring clean – we need to bounce forward, not back to our extractive, ego laden ways….what’s the future you’re imaging? Can’t wait to experience your contribution to our collective future.
Such a lot of energy, chaos, smoke, information, false news and ‘stuff’ around…..somewhat overwhelming!
Sending you peace, joy and clarity during this time of transformation.
One way I’m getting through is imagining a fave beach. My feet in the sand, until my legs feel like the sand, comfortably anchored as the waves of love wash over me.
Then, when I become unstable from the movement of salty water and its exchange with shifting sand, I feel a shifting and re-anchoring of self. Accommodating and working with the ebb and flow of waves, of nature, of life.
Accepting change, welcoming new opportunity but recognising it can be unsettling as well.
It’s been many years since I’ve been overwhelmed by a watery wave (other waves yes) but what’s the worst that can happen? Unplanned moisture on myself? Not going to end my life by any means…..
Welcoming in more love, more kindness, more compassion…..
