How do I try to “listen” for spiritual guidance? How to I find the voice and even know what to ask? We are made of energy, and as energy beings, we don’t end at the skin. Rather we extend into a field of energy that expands or contracts according to our spiritual, emotional and physical state.
The study of energy and energy fields is thousands of years old and there are many practitioners, from acupuncturists to energy workers, who strive to harness these flows and fields for healing. When we seek guidance, we enter this field of energy, leaving behind our own ideas and stories.
We are empty but for the desire for connection, without agenda or needs. Often I think what is overlooked is what an incredible honor and adventure it is to be able to touch into this field. To be an invitation for that field to open and to reveal what is blocking or constricting its flow.
Let’s let go of our perception of what we think reality is and move further out into the realm of human-spirit connection. More often than not, those who feel “crazy” or like a misfit look outside of themselves for comfort. This usually means turning to a group/groups of people to feel “safe” and even “celebrated.” What they don’t understand is true wisdom cannot come through a group because true wisdom is the alchemy of a person’s individual spiritual connectedness and knowing and their individual life experiences.
This transmission is a call to trust yourself and look deeply inward. Appreciate yourself and each other without judgement, without having to associate your life experiences when someone is saying something about their life experiences. We don’t need to know by comparing to something we know.
Lastly, let’s have some true freedom of expression and accountability to be the best versions of ourselves and teach our children to respect that in one another. That accountability is anything but crazy, it is of god, of life and certainly of love.
Love is the only thing stronger than fear. When we allow love to animate our movements, our actions and the way we exist in the world transforms. We find that we seek answers, we become curious. We are not needful. Love identifies us if we allow it. It is the most powerful energy that will ever exist. As we celebrate love this Valentine’s Day, allow yourself to really think and feel about what is blocking your truest expression of love. Where do you prevent yourself from coming into the fullness of your being? Where are you afraid to trust? Think about your relationships... with your children, your partner, your friends. Where do you hold back?
And going deeper, why is it that every human, at any age, seeks as its most basic need, love? Feeling out beyond emotional need into the field of energy that connects of all is the answer. It is there in the mystery of creation – that we are all reflections of a vast intelligence – God. What we are seeking in each other is to connect and reconnect to the divine through all the channels that are so very human.
Do you dare to come open? To feel that you are in partnership with life? All of this depends on how clear we are as a vessel.
Old unfavorable emotions can keep us stuck and looping in the same pattern. How do we learn how to process, interpret and release triggering emotions and feelings? We find we cannot think our way out of being stuck. No, we must engage the heart, mind, spirit, and physical body to release all that is blocking our forward motion. It is not on one level that we must engage, rather on various at the same time.
