Body says to me you have shown great courage in taking on so much of the multiverse all at once! You’ve pushed enough that I need to make you stop for a moment, consider where you are in exactly this particular bit of your existence. Strip you of reserve so that you must let go of needing to do……..anything…….simply to be.
If you can heed the body’s wise counsel early in the piece you will avoid much harsher methods of communication that might be required down the track. When I feel myself succumb to illness my first response is to lie down and rest, as much as I can. If I can’t sleep or do nothing at all then I might indulge in a light read or maybe listen to music. And depending on what’s going on I might partake of particular herbs or fruits and veggies from Nature’s vast cornucopia.
That sometimes includes organic fair trade dark chocolate and a local lemon sorbet that clears the palate like a fresh breeze. My ten year old girl comes out when I’m sick and she wants to be nurtured with her favourite foods. The woman who eats it savours every mouthful with a sensual nature that is shared with the young girl, but in her has become deeper and even more expanded.
Thank you Body for your wisdom, I promise I will always do my best to respect you and to pay attention when you speak to me. Together we have the opportunity to continue our fabulous journey as spirit and matter joined in the space-time continuum.
Let the Magic continue forever more!
Not the state I aspire to!
Apologies for anyone whose been keeping track and who noticed the absence of a post last Friday, it has finally brought me to a decision that I have thinking about for some time. I love this blog and will continue to write posts but it will be just two a week instead of three and it seems to be the Fridays that I struggle with so you can expect to hear from me on Wednesdays and Sundays from now on. My life has become very full and spending quality time with my Beloved is super important as well as developing our ecstatic dance events and other workshops. Not to mention the various ways that I earn money to survive on this physical plane, it all needs to happen and for myself I would prefer it to be blissful as opposed to getting stressed out.
And if you are clear about what you need in your life it is so much easier for spirit to bring it to you. As Terence McKenna said in the video in my last post, The Courage To Live Life To The Full, when Muhammad couldn’t go to the mountain it came to him. So why not try being playful with the possibilities that stand before you whatever they may be, and just check that you are not placing limitations on who you can be. Who you think you are is just that, a thought, and thoughts can be changed in the blink of an eye! Or it may take a tad longer but there is no reason why you can’t have fun along the way, and when you are being challenged in your process remember that these obstacles will often end up being your greatest teachers.
The light at the end of the tunnel!
I bless the darkness that has been a part of my learning, there were times I didn’t think I could make it through that much pain. But I did, and the more often that happens the more confident you become when fresh challenges arise. If I have a moment of thinking that it’s all too much and I will never cope, I remind myself that I’ve been in that space before and found my way out, it’s very reassuring.
Love the darkness, love the light, and as my friend Michael Laughing Wolf always says, “Love self………..do next thing.”
Talk to you again on Wednesday, blissings and love to all beings everywhere!
