Energy Musings.  Here.  Now.

Today.

emerge. (v.) (from etymonline.com). 1560s, from Middle French émerger and directly from Latin emergere “bring forth, bring to light,” intransitively “arise out or up, come forth, come up, come out, rise,” from assimilated form of ex “out” (see ex-) + mergere “to dip, sink” (see merge). The notion is of rising from a liquid by virtue of buoyancy. Related: Emerged; emerging.

 

Imagine yourself, buoyant.  Rising from the depths of the sea.  From far below, underneath, where you have been hiding or living.  Perhaps you sank here?  Or perhaps you were born here?  Perhaps you didn’t even realize, this is where you were?  Do you even remember a time when this was not your resting place?

Look up and see the light filtering through the distant watery surface.  How far above you is that journey?  How deep in the darkness are you sleeping?  How long have you been here?

Traveling to the light always represents a birth of some form.  You already know how to do this.  The work is learning how to not resist your own natural state of bouyancy.  To be re-born, is simply to re-member.

Find the practices to integrate into your daily life that enable you to trust, soften, relax and let go.  Perhaps it is meditation, chanting, silent walking, dance, yoga.   Look to what makes your feel free and what brings you a sense of ease.  This is not a time to force effort. Not a time to work hard. Or get the endorphins chugging.

This is a time to surrender to what is your natural state of being. This is the focus and awareness necessary to float to the surface and come in to the deeper expression of your life you have been longing for.

To Emerge.

Happy 2018.

Energy Musings.  Here. Now. 

Today.

We are operating at warp speed. Catching up quickly to the lessons we have long been avoiding. The ones hidden in the deep dark shadows and recesses of our psyche and being.  This kind of “catch up” can been be brutal at times.  Can throw you off balance, trigger you, feel like a relentless ‘attack’.

The question is:  how do you respond to pressure?  I don’t mean the kind of pressure when you leave your homework assignment till the night before or don’t study for  a test until the 11th hour.  I mean pure, base, raw, survival pressure.

Collectively, we need a new way, a new strategy, some new options.

Starting with ourselves,cultivate the deepest level of awareness we are capable of in this moment.  And this one.  And this one.  Noticing exactly when we lose or drop this awareness and coming back to it time and time and time again.  This takes training, and diligence.

It’s also time to strategize Together and struggle through differing opinions and viewpoints to see the collective universal wisdom that I know is there, but hasn’t yet been revealed.

We must listen, really listen, and listen more.  Listen without judgement.  Remembering if we truly are to remain “awake and aware” ; If we truly are to move forward with “eyes wide open”;   then we must, MUST, take in ALL information. We can’t pick and choose, because then we don’t have the whole picture.

We’ve run out of time.  In this moment, everyone must rise together.  In this moment, we all must do our work.  In this moment,  we must and can, shift.

Peace All.
