“Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out.”
~ Katherine Dunham
You know that feeling you get when anxiety takes over? It grabs you around the chest and squeezes until you’re struggling to be set free. Your arms are weak and your heart is pounding. Well that’s me today. Sunday of all days! So I’m going to try and write it out.
Yesterday I spent most of my day at the Mind Body Spirit Festival in Brisbane, just walking around, looking at stalls and sitting in on a couple of talks and performances. All in all it was a good day, but very tiring and so much information and psychic energy to take in and process.
A performance by Jason McDonald really opened my eyes to the extent of some people’s psychic gifts and really makes me wonder why some people seem to be born so in tune with spirit and beyond while others, well… aren’t. Although, when you talk to those extraordinarily gifted few, they will mostly tell you that anyone can do what they do, you just have to be open to it. Which leads me to another question: Why do we unconsciously place limits on ourselves?
As a child I saw spirits or ghosts, I even had mini premonitions. I didn’t have to try to be open to this, I just was. Maybe that’s just it. It’s not about trying or wanting, it’s just about being and allowing.
My card for the month of March is “Be still & go within”, so that’s what I am going to do. It’s what we all need to do sometimes. When information is bombarding us from all directions, when we have deadlines at work and partnerships to maintain; when we feel like we are 5 or 6 people all at once playing different roles. The planner, the organiser, the mystic, the lover, the student, the guru. Sometimes we need to STOP. We need to remember that none of these labels define who we really are. On an energetic level we are no different to a flower or a puddle or a tree. Just molecules. We started as a single cell in this life and that is how we will end and what we do in the middle is totally within our control. We just need to chill the flip out and let the inspiration flow.
