Loni Wise Reiki Master, Teacher, Practitioner
Sometimes the darkest weeks turn into the strongest realizations of light. It can be a difficult thing to see your full potential, especially as others seem to perceive it. Each of us are made of the stardust from the Universe and part of that existence is, on some level, knowing deep down that we are the Universe. All beings contain a Universal quality of and it was teaching us lessons about our bigness last week. The challenges over the last several weeks presented themselves in order to connect a thread within us, which thus far, many of us have been reluctant to acknowledge…and by us, I mean to include myself in a big way. This thread I am referring to is a seam that connects the human experience with the spiritual experience. This thread functions in some different ways depending on what we each need at the time. For example if we are having a very human physical experience it will bring us back to connection with our spiritual body. If we are having a spiritual or out of body experience, this thread helps to bring us back to our existing home in the physical body, and if we are in an emotional experience, it is this thread that brings it all back to both the physical and emotional bodies. The thread is a strong place, like a muscle, that works within and without us and is strengthened by how much we use it.
For the last several years there has been much discussion within spiritual communities about how getting attached to this human experience of things and possessions is shadow energy and diminishes the spirit which wants to be free of all attachment. In today's time it is extremely easy to succumb to the wiles of gadgets and things which are created to consume the consumer. Many do not even realize that they are swept up in it. It isn't only about little thing to occupy your mind. It can also be about you having more… bigger house, faster cars, swanky brand name clothes, etc., more, more, more. Now this is not to say that these are bad things, or that there is shame in making a living and filling it with these things that make you happy, there isn't. It is knowing that at any time you could let it all go, that at any moment you would be willing to release it for whatever reason. You see, the soul knows that all of this is temporary and the moment you are attached to something, anything, anyone, you bring yourself to the thread which connects you to the physical. Not you or bad, simply what it is. The physical realm is a fruitful and necessary experience for the souls who are here and meant to be in it.
It may have felt as if, in the last week, that your meditations and spiritual connection time felt differently, as if the pull to be out in the spiritual plane was strong enough that you may not be able to find your way back to your physical body (or may not want to). While this can be quite intense, it remains part of the journey to be in all of these bodies, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and ethereal. When you travel beyond the edges of your physical body, you are opening yourself to the embodiment of spirit. You become more of what you actually are instead of who you have been taught to be in the conditioning of this life. What appears difficult in some of this is when you have been feeling struggle in your physical life, the pull to stay in the light body is strong and in some very real ways irresistible. It is only with wisdom and strength that you choose to follow the thread back into balance. Your mind may tell you that you cannot have that intensity of light here in the physical, however, the truth is what you know in your heart and this is what beings you back.
When you drop in and out of the emotional body, you drop in and out of all realms. While emotions are mainly of the physical, they effect the mental which can take you away from the spiritual balance. The key here is to acknowledge the emotions as they come and offer them space to move through. By allowing your emotions to flow in the moment without restraint you are balancing all of the bodies within. This balance is the sweet spot, it's the place we are often working to be. My wish is that you find your sweet spot and can flow in and out of it with your hearts desire. Blessings Friends!
