Writings From The Temple~
I try to spend as much time as I possibly can in The Temple. (Note- Am offering my digital retreat program You Are The Temple at a MUCH lower price, so more of you can live in your Temple also). It’s not just about creating daily rituals or gorgeous self-care.
For me it’s also a kind of listening to the world, and seeing things through symbolic sight… trying to see beyond third dimension “reality” to what is really trying to reach us. (Btw… those willows were in my old yard.. loved them so.)
I have been practicing a kind of “holy listening” and writing down the guidance that comes in. Sometimes I sit with and listen to a particular plant, sometimes a tree or the Moon. Sometimes it just comes in as wisdom from something outside of me and I’m not sure where. I don’t know what to call this, but feel like I have always been a “transmitter”- more through me than from me. What I know is that there is so much guidance, love, information and a desire to cocreate with us and through us… in partnership, with Nature and the bigness of the invisible world that wants to support us. I hope these writings serve you in some way. My prayer.
Here is today’s writing from the Temple~
You find yourself unusually sensitive now. The challenge to stay calm, to avoid reactivity and the temptation to control…everything… all this is being stirred up. Everything in your world is here to help you, every irritant to your senses, every difference of opinion, the fears floating relentlessly in our midst are beckoning to you- not to engage with them, not to take them on in battle, but as an alarm bell, an urgent reminder that you must learn to hold a calm and centered place now.
That you practice different ways to come back again and again, to un-clench the jaw, to turn towards stillness over action, that you learn to breathe your way into peace…into trusting the beauty of your own divinity, and your part of the whole. To find the connection that remembers you are never alone and to let a sense of love and belonging envelop you and smoothe you out. Feel into that word.
You will need faith, trust, devotion and a heart and mind that can choose love again and again. This is not about religion, this is about bringing the perspective of heart…wisdom you can count on.
This will not be easy and it may not come naturally but each of us is here to be better, to train ourselves to be more.
Nature can and wants to help, wants to connect with you, wants to be appreciated while also being a balm as you search for that which can soothe you.
Refresh yourself by choosing true and simple nourishment, come into your senses and your body…your body, your self, your heart need more simplicity and stillness now. Find moments of quiet before taking any action…this is your new rhythm in everything.
Notice whatever is in your environment your body or mind and use this to travel into a few moments of stillness. Your nervous system requires and craves this now. There are many ways to come into stillness, find your way here however you are shown and in ways that feel best.
I loved sharing this with you and hope it speaks to your experience. I’d love to know how it landed for you.
