While connecting with the
Earth the other day, literally putting my hands in the soil, I had a
flash of insight about what I'd been experiencing internally…
They would wind around each other sometimes in tangled webs, with each sinew leading to another in some deeper, unknown part of the soil. I would break one off, knowing that a piece of another was still stuck in the soil - something I would have to deal with later.
But at least I had gotten
a good section of it out and taken care of the task at hand.
These are connections established when people interact emotionally.
When based in love, the
cord is vibrant, healthy one. When based in conflict or fear (or
co-dependency), the cord is darker and heavier, like an unwanted
root that needs to be pulled out or cut.
Instead, we can take some
time, digging in deep to find the source of that root, clearing the
dirt around it and creating some space to find the extent of it. And
then, when all that is done, we gently pull the root up until it
comes out once and for all.
I have come to understand that some of these stories were connected to other lifetimes - lifetimes of being an intuitive, a "witch" even. In a past life regression visualization, I saw myself being persecuted. I was weird, scary, or maybe just too mysterious.
So that translates to my
fear of being out in the open with my true self, a fear of "being
seen," in my current reality.
And while I have learned
to operate only in Divine light, which protects me at all times,
those fears still emerge at times.
I knew that my spirit was
connecting with theirs, so I would do their bidding and help provide
some comfort by conveying this information to their relative/friend.
I didn't have that
ability, and besides, I might be laughed at or might start having
spirits following me around all of the time (sounds kind of creepy,
That I need to overcome these fears so I can come into who I really am and who I have been in many lifetimes. And that is that, like the owl (my spirit animal) with its eyes seeing clearly in the dark of night, I have a way of seeing into people's souls, through illusions and into truth.
I can help them look into the uncomfortable and hidden areas that they need to see, places that their Ego selves may prevent them from accessing in everyday life. They can begin to understand what incredible potential and power lies deep within them.
They can access their true beings so their inner light can shine and help heal a world that badly needs it.
Nature is my teacher.
Nature is helping me heal myself so I can bring the lessons I've learned, and the teachings from the Spirit world and from the Earth, to those that need to hear.
If we look closer at the natural state of our world, we can see how the laws of Nature also apply to the inner workings of our lives, to our personal growth.
Abundance, for instance, is a universal property that should also come naturally to us humans, for water flows freely and leaves grow abundantly.
Money is a form of energy, but is only one form of abundance. If we can let our attachment to a piece of paper go, we can understand that abundance comes in many forms:
But change doesn't happen overnight, in spite of our modern society's addiction to the quick-fix solution ("Isn't there something I can take for that?").
Plants don't grow overnight either - a seed is planted, and it needs sun, water, and soil to grow.
When making transformations in our lives, we need to practice patience and make sure the right ingredients are there for our own growth (like gratitude, trust, learning lessons and taking risks).
If something didn't work,
we don't just give up and never try to grow anything again - no,
maybe we need more sun this time, or better soil. Or more support
from friends, or more mind-nourishment (meditation).
We can learn from the natural rhythms of Nature. And not just for our own nourishment and safety. We can learn from the Earth, from the wisdom and qualities of animals here to teach us about ourselves as humans.
We can learn from the natural laws and properties of Nature and similarly apply those to our own soul evolution.
Personal growth over time is like a leaf carried by the current of the flowing river. Sometimes the leaf gets stuck in an eddy, but the hand of the Divine usually helps it out as long as it doesn't fight the current.
Like digging up the
entirety of roots deeply entrenched in soil, we can work through our
stuck beliefs to allow the vegetables and flowers of our lives to
fully blossom and grow.
And then our expansion
into our full, limitless potential can truly begin...
