There comes a time on our spiritual journey when we run out of road, we have to admit that we cannot go any farther and we have three choices, to quit, to figure out how to continue on the current road or to find a new road. Each choice has its benefits and drawbacks, one is not better than another. What we choose depends on how much awareness we have and whether we are ready for the new road, which could be anything from a completely different road to a new mindset to a new way of looking at ourselves.
As masters of the third dimension you have dominion over its energies of form and creation. You can, through your thoughts and voice, say what you wish and it is done. While you may not be able to see the energies moving or have doubt that your voice has been heard, the movement is created as soon as you begin the process.
As I write this two of my three children are preparing to move into a new life purpose, one which will take them into new territories, geographically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. To arrive at this point they had to make some difficult choices about what was important to them, who they would be influenced by and whether they would serve themselves or others. Their biggest challenge was to decide what served their purpose and to have the courage to follow that path, even if it meant walking it alone.
During my years as a technical project manager I worked with a colleague who was intelligent, highly skilled and professional. We often traveled together and have dinner after a long day at a customer site. One night we ordered the same thing for dinner and when our plates arrived, they contained several small, round purple vegetables. The waiter said they were purple potatoes, which neither of us had ever eaten before. I tried them first and, despite their unusual color, decided they were good, so I ate them. My colleague, on the other hand, refused to eat hers.
Well, another month has gone by in a year that seems to be going by so quickly that it's hard to keep up. Linear time is collapsing into universal time where all things happen simultaneously and we are integrating other aspects of ourselves into this reality. Where are we grounded and functioning?
What is the purpose of life? What is the purpose of our presence on earth? What are we doing here and how can we know we are living our purpose? Is there a specific path we are supposed to follow and how can we know whether or not we are following it?
The aspect of our presence we are most aware of, even more than the physical, is our emotions. We judge everything in our life, including our body, by how we feel. When emotions are the predominant aspect, we can be completely oblivious to anything that is occurring around us. We believe we are emotionally whole when we have healed the emotions but one additional step must happen.
In order to do the healing work that is the foundation of each lifetime we require a physical presence on the earth. This physical presence begins with our body and all of the aspects that are required for it to function within its healing path. In addition to these physical aspects, such as gender, skin color, height, weight, and health, we have other material aspects such as personality and emotions that are important in realizing our mission. It is the combination of aspects that creates the perfect material presence for us to begin the journey of healing.
One of my favorite quotes (from the actor Woody Allen) is “Eighty percent of success is showing up.” Each lifetime is a way in which we show up, ready to complete a task begun long ago, to work through any karmic cycles which have the power to ensure our return for completion and transformation. While we may wonder why we do it, we volunteer to return because we know that every energetic opening we leave behind must be closed through our own healing. No one can heal, transmute or complete energies that we have left incomplete. And to do this we must be present in many ways, physically, emotionally, energetically, experientially and spiritually.
Well, once again I'm happy to say that a month has ended. March came in with a somewhat gentle energy that certainly changed as we approached the month end with an outpouring of highly charged vibrations that left everyone wondering what happened. The full moon at month end came with an enormous amount of clearing and transformational energy that felt like a cosmic vacuum cleaner so whatever we had not already cleared was moved right out.
