Bored? Detached? Consciously (Un)Familiar Territory

I am inspired about a conversation we had in a Trinity Energy Progression Practitioner Share the other nigt.  Conversation came up about how we are tired of the game, and that there is a reluctance within us to respond, engage or feel anything toward the 3D stage and all the absurdity that is being played out upon it. It feels that we are left with an apathetic shrug and descend from its drama. In this divergence we desire to be removed from the game all together. Though in this desire of disconnection from the plot and its set, it has severed connectivity to the deeper level of who we are. In here avails an opportunity to mend and grow from. This conversation awakened something similar within myself that I want to explore and understand. The following is my attempt to grasp meaning or understanding. In this place of finding meaning, I will bring tribute to my ego and mind, and give way for it to try to work it this out, before releasing or relinquishing the reigns of control to guidance and a higher or more valid principal of myself. Because of course, my right foot is still more firmly planted in 3D than my other foot is in the unknown.  Hopefully, this next section will loosen that foothold and turn the balance to being brilliantly planted into the unknown.

We in the healing community find ourselves in a strange and unfamiliar place.  In fact, we are so much in the place that we are, it is hard to look at it from another perspective. What am I talking about, you ask. This may resonate with you in some way. I hear from others in our circle, as well as experience and feel myself, the lackluster of this 3D being version of self. There is a veil that has been lifted that has taken away my innocence. The realization that there is no “Santa Claus” or that Barbie and Ken are only dolls or that this “reality” is nowhere in proximity of the truth to being real is creeping into my consciousness. Sure, I have “known” this for some time. But just like when I was 7, I knew that playing house may not be exactly the same as being a grown up. Though when that transition took place, it was so much more radical and different than I could comprehensively fathom. So here now, I find myself on the fence between two worlds. One foot is the drama-rich place of life and believing it is real, and the other foot is grazing the surface of the unknown. This is a frustrating place to be.  A lot of trauma and drama is surfacing as I face this. How are you responding to it? I know I am not dealing so well. I am cocooning into a void much like an emotionally unavailable teenager retreating into their bedroom to avoid both the world they came from and the world they are expected to grow into. So yes, I am sulking, maybe many of us are. Though we are a bit more awake than the teenager, in that we can see that something is up. We could say in teenage vernacular that “life sucks” and “why me,” BUT we know that is not true. We are NOT alone and this not a self-centered me thing, but an US predicament.  I believe we hear the phrase “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore!”

Yes, I understand, that this “hormonal”-like rush is taking place and that we are being positioned and made ready for the next stage. But here on this rolling scale (depending on the day and the hour), is a rage, an impatience, or an unimpressed vesicle who at the end of the day is just more and more blasé to it all. And friends, this is where I judge myself and say something just isn’t right about the loss of that loving feeling. This is where it resembles the antithesis of a what it may mean to be an energy healer.  So, while being on the verge of an existential crisis, I’d like to step away from that ledge all together.  And here is where I remember (or remind myself to remember to remember) that this is what happens when we give reign to the ego.  That part who loves to hate the drama and hates to love the action of being hooked into this wild ride of unreason.

In taking a look at all this drama and coming to the realization that it is time to let go, it is also time to let go of the belief that there is futility in the act of letting go. And ok, I’ll say it, it is time for allowing the big shift to occur, the big step to take place, and the ultimate “get into our big girl/boy pants” moment is now.  It is time to give our ego a big hug and huge expression of gratitude and thanks to all that it has done. But we acknowledge that its reign is over and we are attending the coronation where the so-called crown is to be placed upon our higher self, our connected self ,our all loving and trusting and knowing self.  This is a new time and place where time is timeless and place is placeless.  This is for our best, where we are truly free to be our most ultimate expression.

Thanks for the metaphorical journey (kool-aidless of course :-))!  I love all of your bright lights.  Eager to join you through this evolution and on our next level of being.

Namaste,

Communication – Keep in Rhythm

“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” -Rumi

I seem to breeze through different themes in my life, some themes lasting a week or so and others lasting years. I’ve decided to blog about my experiences in hopes that someone else out there resonates with them too, and would like to share this journey with me. Let’s connect!

When one speaks of evolution, it’s assumed a good thing – survival of the fittest and all that. Our world has evolved so much in the last 50 years. Men are taking care of the kids, and it’s not called babysitting, it’s called parenting.  Science has put humans on the moon, and someday there might even be a colony on a different planet.  Our phones no longer need operators and wires – they are little wafers of metal that are small enough to put in our pockets, and more powerful than the mainframes of the 70’s.  The internet has changed the world.  But is all evolution good?  Not really.

Language evolved so that we could connect with each other, and share experiences with one another.  Today, more often not, it seems to have the opposite effect. There is a lack of understanding of each other, and an inability to be compassionate to a fellow human being that would seem to stop true communication from occurring.  How did this happen?

It happened innocently enough.  Our lives got faster. We didn’t have as much time to spend with each person we met, so we would get to the point quicker and would skip the pleasantries.  Regular phone calls and in person visits with family went the way of the dodo, and we just posted pictures of the kids on Facebook so everyone can be up to date with little Johnny’s latest Little League achievement.  We are communicating with more people at one time, primarily electronically.  There is no context, eye contact, body language or tone that can be conveyed in the written word, which leads to disconnect. Our tweets have to be 150 characters or less, so brevity is the word of the day.  Of course, we need brevity, because we are all busy and cannot be expected to hold anyone’s attention for much longer.

When we have in person communications, there are more opportunities to truly connect, but do we?  Eye contact, body language can be witnessed, but often the incessant pull of the mobile device can lure us in with its seductive tones.  The hurriedness we experience can cause us to speak more quickly, and with less care about our choice of words.  This can lead to misunderstanding and hurt feelings that were never intended.

How can we make sure that our intent is delivered with our words, so that misunderstanding is minimized?
How can we communicate with care and compassion?
How can we connect authentically?

Here are some things that I have put in practice for myself.

When communicating with someone, my phone stays stowed away.  Phone calls can be returned, and texts can be returned when I am done personally interacting with who is in front of me.  The person in front of me is the only one who exists in this moment.

When communicating with someone, I slow down.  I breathe.  I keep soft eye contact. I focus on them while they are speaking, and ask clarifying questions and acknowledge what they say. How did that make you feel?  Why did you do that?  My objective is not just to hear their words, but to make them feel heard too. When I respond, it can be from the place of compassion and connection, and can give them not only what I want to say but also what they need to hear.

When someone is venting to me, I ask an important question – do you want advice or a sympathetic ear?  When people just need to vent, they often know the solution already, and giving them advice is not going to be met with gratitude.

Always think before speaking – it is better to keep your mouth shut and appear foolish than open it and remove all doubt.

Language.  It rolls off the tongue or ties it.  It connects or divides.

How do you make authentic connections with others in pen or voice?

Lessons Within a Lesson

In this new cycle, or… New Year, many of us have been called to try new things; to do, be, create, think, express differently. To come out the comfort zone, come out of our shells or to spread the wings and fly. And, of course, I took it to heart and very personally! ?

I started going deep into childhood memories, my imaginary future possibilities and buried desires. Questioning myself: What else did I want to be/do when I grew up that I have not done yet?

That questioning brought me to this new experience. As I live this new exciting/challenging process of remembrance of being fully my Self, as myself and part of the Divine consciousness, I have felt confused and clear, frustrated and at peace…. all at the same time! But, I am committed to embracing it… fully!

Following guidance from within, from friends and family and from the loving nudges that God/ Universe/Source is giving me through my experiences, I chose to go for it and answer the calling to do something completely different.

Taking action upon opportunities, I found myself pursuing one of my very deep and quiet desires and loves… to learn to play an instrument.

As I child, I always imagined myself dancing and playing/rocking to this hypnotizing instrument… the guitar!!! Yes, like those female guitar/electric bass players… yep, just like that! ?

Even though I feel a have been living in a song, I’m super musically oriented as a dancer, and with a family full of musicians and performers, I could picture myself playing it, but (maybe because others did it or, because I felt I wasn’t cool enough) I didn’t seriously consider it an option, like I did with dance(which became a career). I never thought I would be brave enough to pick up a guitar to play it… especially now, years later!

It felt too familiar, yet too foreign to conceptualize it. It’s  knowledge felt beyond me, yet very deeply rooted within my soul. An unexplainable connection; a deep feeling of  respect to it, to its sound.

This idea of playing guitar took me to a point of discomfort and feelings of unworthiness. The thought of me creating music through this instrument felt embarrassing… the sound will come from my playing it? I am more familiar with being seeing, not heard (or so I thought).

It still feels uncomfortable and embarrassing, even though I have processed. Little by little… I’m getting over it. ?

So, me acting upon bravely and with a conflicted mind,  I followed my intuition and guidance to find an instructor; it started as my son’s guitar instructor, who also plays. Then, buying a guitar(no name yet ?)… and then actually starting the lessons.

I dove right into my first lesson. And, with ZERO understanding of the instrument, I attentively listened to the instructor while a gazillion thoughts were processed in my mind. You might know some; thoughts like: “Me, not me… Ego please stop… I don’t get it! Be patience, have fun… why, I don’t get it…” On and on!

There I was… me! 10 minutes into it, I was on the verge of tears of frustration, trying to grasp the concepts of the guitar. I found even the most elemental concepts challenging… I still do; there was the quiet voice/energy saying, “Shh… Listen, imagine, be patient… You can do it!”

Then, the instructor started to explain the how’s. The string and the pressure of one’s touch, and how that creates the sound. Depending on where you place your fingers on the strings, different sounds one creates. Also, the sound gets higher in tones as you go down the neck of the guitar and vice versa… he lost me there a little bit!

Yes, awesome! yet… I didn’t get it.? Then he said, “Imagine a Circle.” Ahhh… ok! More confused, but I gave it a few breaths (practicing patience, thank you yoga).

All of a sudden, in my mind, I saw this circle tilt into a different perspective, looking at it diagonally. As I see another perspective, I start seeing a spiral  moving higher, as it goes down the neck of the guitar. The strings being the spirals, showing me how the sound moves. And how this relates to me. Just like our experiences in life.

Imagining life as a circle… well, to me it looks like a never ending circle, where we experience things over and over again. Different scenario, same core issue; over and over… It is not until we see the loop for what it is, we wonder in an ego-based spiral of thoughts. Sometimes, we get sucked in to that flow. But,  when we look at it from another angle, tilting that circle; the spiral shows up! I imagine it very similar to a DNA strand. That circle expands, like an accordion. There I can see the downward and upward spiral. The flow is there for us to flow in whatever direction we want. Within it, I can see how even the core issue shows up, as repeatedly as it might seem, the experiences are showing us its lessons; to learn and remember. I can choose from what perspective to see it. Seeing things in such a way, helps me to allow myself to observe it from a higher/different perspective every time. Allowing a deeper knowing and understanding of it so I can release, and expand. So I can evolve, grow, and learn the lesson.  To let go with gratitude. Like a spiral of limitless possibilities, experiences, knowledge full of love, made by, with, to, and for Love. That’s how I’ve started to understand how the guitar works. And it feels amazing!

Back in 3D/guitar lesson, an hour-and-a-half went by in a blink of an eye! So fun!

Now, I have a better idea about guitars, how it works and how I relate to it. It’s fascinating!

The learning/play process… it’s a challenge I was able to choose. I’m feeling empowered and unafraid to mess up. I’m allowing myself to be vulnerable and allow a sound to come from me.

I choose to flow with the knowledge of the beautiful unknown, and allow myself to experience it, to the best and highest of my capabilities, feeling grateful and having fun.

To a new cycle… In allowance and acceptance… Going beyond… Being courageous… Being a lighthouse… Being!

How Can I Love You?

Five words that could change the way you think about how we communicate and listen to the ones we love.
This past summer I had the privilege of attending a PSI (personal development) seminar. It was a wonderful experience that I was fortunate enough to attend with my spouse. There were interesting break-out exercises .that resulted in many personal insights. One of my favorite sessions was the “How can I love you” exercise.

How can I love you? Say this to your loved one and see what happens. Sit across from each other… hold hands and look into one another’s eyes. Just enjoy looking until you feel connected. You can whisper or ask out loud. How can I love you? Sit together in a safe space and be fully engaged in active listening. Fully and completely. Listen. Give your partner plenty of time to reply, as some may have never been asked and have to think about it. When your partners is done speaking… ask again How can I love you? Continue as guided. Change places. Does it feel empowering to clearly state how you feel? Was it easier to listen or speak? What a fun and creative way to fine- tune our personal relationships.

Exquisite

Swirling at 10,000 feet,
The golden soup of Be-ing
Twirls ad infinitum,
Whirling, creating,

Magnetizing, energizing,
Drawing out the most
Optimal realities,
Releasing the dross,

In-joying, enlivening
Each moment unfolds,
Celebrating Is-ness
In effervescent tones.

A captivating sunset
A heart-wrenching embrace,
Intoxicating beauty,
Hilarious displays

Of life-affirming spirit
Bursting through the dark,
Manifesting magnificence,
An existential spark.

A cosmic centrifuge,
The fountain of life,
A lotus in the mud,
A beacon of light

Omniscient, microscopic,
Eternally within,
At the heart of (the) matter
And always has been…

Exquisite!
