Last night I stumbled (metaphorically speaking*), so let’s call it a “crises of faith” (for now). Not sure how else to label it, but I felt the fall, and the crash landing. It was uncomfortable. And a type of physical impression similar to how I realized that Present Moment Consciousness was a tactical sensation.
*No, I did not incur ANOTHER injury. My jammed toe is still purple, but it was good enough for pool class.
Yesterday’s card message nearly crashed into me as I flipped over today’s. It all dropped immediately and perfectly in to place. I was greatly relieved, let me tell you. (I had no idea that Zen Balance was such a precarious and fragile thing.) The current sign from the Universe needs to be addressed before I say anything else.
Have a good cry.
Grief is the doorway to your deepest self.”
Now, don’t walk away from this one just because at first glance you think “oh I’m not grieving and I don’t need to cry.” There’s more here than those few words are letting on.
We do ourselves such a disservice when we skim right past messages that don’t SCREAM our names upon initial browsing. We ALL do this from time to time. If we wait though, and apply a wee bit of patience, the point of the sign or omen will appear. Is that easy? Hell no. Is is worth it for our soul growth? Hell yes.
In this case, I can’t say what EXACTLY will be your catalyst or bright-shiny-light-of-awakening moment (unless of course you hire me to), but I CAN say (with entire certainty) that it WILL show up*. Mine did this afternoon, and it made an enormous difference.
*It seriously always does, for everyone. No exceptions.
Even though our daily draw mentions crying our grief away, it also says that a Release is in order. This Letting Go will happen precisely as it needs to happen, which very well MIGHT be by having “a good cry” or it may not. Either way, be open to allowing this to manifest. And honouring the process.
A few days ago I finished Apolo’s autobiography. Yesterday I loaned it to my mother (my dad will read it too if it’s in the house) and when it comes back I’m going to hand it over to Dan. That note, above, was a reminder that I jotted down while I was reading (because he mentioned it). It’s not a new saying, but it is a good one. So I’m sharing it. (As well as carting the Post It around with me from room to room.)
When we Release that which we no longer need, and fill the now-empty space we’ve just created with that which will serve us and all the planet more lovingly, we become our own positive example. When we walk our path with honesty and for the highest good of us all we BECOME that change.
