This is a time of great change, of
openings and awakenings. We are poised as humanity to open to our greatness, to
create life fully and to honor the creations of others. It is part of why we
have each come here, to contribute to the awakening through our own thoughts, our
actions and if we choose our own evolution.
As we each open, we create the
opportunity for the fullness of our light to be here, now. We step away from
what no longer serves us and we pause from the habituated patterns of the past,
even if that past was but a moment ago. It is easy to lose sight of what a
transformative time this is. It is easy to forget who we truly are and fall
under the density of fear and lack, attributes of the past, elements of
polarity that keep us engrained in repeating the past.
Perhaps it is a large global event such
as the upcoming presidential election in the United States that provides the
opportunity to recognize what is possible. Or it may be something very
personal, such as an unexpected illness or change in job. Regardless of the
external partner to our growth, we are given the environment to recognize our
internal value, our light. How we chose to do what we do is as important as
what we choose to do. At times, it may actually be more important than the act
When we come from remembrance of who we
truly are, we live a life devoid of limitations. This does not mean that we do
not still encounter events in daily life, expressions of form and matter and of
other people’s creations that are challenging. It does mean that how we respond
to those challenges and opportunities is entirely up to us.
Often when we are faced with an obstacle or
limitation that is of our own unconsciousness it seems larger than it truly is,
it seems insurmountable. Caught in the
habitual relationship with what we perceive, we don’t recognize what is transpiring
or how to do thing differently. And yet the key to changing any obstacle is so
I was reminded of this the other day as I
came upon a small grey mouse struggling in the grass. He lifted his body
upward, squealing as I walked toward him. His feet were buried in the grass and
his upper body twisted eagerly in an exhausted dance. I went inside to grab
some tools, wondering how this mouse was stuck in a hole. Although I have an
irrational fear of things that crawl fast and might surprise me as they run up
my sleeve, I could do nothing other than help.
Imagine my surprise as I pulled the grass
back only to discover that what stood between this mouse and freedom was three
strands of grass. Three thin, barely noticeable to you or I strands of grass.
No big monster, no snake holding it in its grasp, three strands of grass.
Now of course to be fair, a mouse’s legs
are thin, and three strands of grass wrapped to the legs and tail can hold down,
well the weight of a struggling mouse. This mouse had efforted to the brink of
exhaustion. And I needed much smaller tools than I had brought to release the
hold of three strands of grass. Delicately I worked to unwind the morass of
grass, entwined around his belly and tied in knots. I soon discovered one of
his back legs was broken. I don’t know which came first, the broken leg or the
knots of determined grass. Either way my tiny charge lay immobile. Defeated by
three strands of grass he now opened eagerly to the support of Cellular
Expansion and Healing. His field cleared, his breathing changed and his leg
moved back into alignment.
I was struck throughout the day about how
our own patterns can seem insurmountable. If we don’t step back we might just
keep efforting until we, break something… I realized the image of the mouse
needing help from something larger ( with opposable thumbs!) illustrated so
beautifully how the personality needs the Soul, to get out of its own way, to
open to what is next and to release those three little blades of grass.
May all your obstacles be seen in
perspective. May your heart open freely today to the warmth and support of
another. And may we each remind one another through our actions and our orientation
how rich we truly are.
