Energy Musings. Here. Now.

Today!

Balance.  How easy it is to forget as we teeter tooter from one thing to another, in reactionary mode to each and every thing that stimulates or triggers us.  It is one thing (and an important thing at that!) to practice balance in meditation, in yoga, on paper, in checkbooks, behind classroom doors, with an expert at the helm.

But can you walk, breathe, live and respond with this same balance in your life and in this world?  Can you cultivate the balance within yourself, your being, your mind and carry that inner balance with you as a lens through which to use discernment as you live your days?  What does it mean to you to truly, truly, live in balance?  in balance with what?

Consider balance today, this week.  Play with it. Get to know it.  Explore it.  Seek it. Question it.   Surrender to it. Pray for it.

If we want to get off this roller coaster of a life and walk together more peacefully, true balance is essential for everyone, for everything, for all of us.

Start by getting curious about the true nature of Balance.

Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today!

New Moon on Monday!  Theres an amplification in the air.  Asking you to look at the “stuck” places in your being, in your body, in your mind, in your life, in your home, in your relationships, in your work, in it ALL.

Its a bit of an organic process. Noticing one holding pattern, seeing it reflected somewhere else and asking yourself where and how you can best shift it.  If you can find these places on and in the physical body, down to the most subtle sensations, and shift them their,  that shift will ripple out from the inside and subsequently shift the places where it is magnified and represented outside you.  But this requires intense personal work.  On a very deep, engaged, discerning and skilled level.  When this level of work is not apparent or appropriate, we begin to look around and see where we can ‘unstick’.

Sometimes you might just have to dig in the dirt. Move it, toss it, aerate it, free it up to receive oxygen.  Then notice in your body what you register. Release.

Sometimes you might need to build a fire.  Gather wood, build a structure, set it ablaze and watch the transmutation of one form into another.  Then notice in your body what you register.  Let Go.

sometimes you need to rake leaves, plant seeds, move furniture, clean the house, make art, scrub the sink, climb a tree….

If you don’t know what to do, look around with the question “what is stuck”?  It might show up as very literal, glaringly obvious, quite subtle or totally metaphorical.  But its there, its there.

Take some quiet time today to find that stuck place that is asking for your help.  Listen. Listen.  And then, with the dark moon as your ally, let it go.  Then give yourself time to notice the changes that will begin to unfold for you moving forward.
