I’m finding it hard to get grounded in the energies that are bombarding us these days. We have solar flares and polar shifts, earth quakes and tsunami’s. So much is happening that it is hard to keep our balance through it all. The old way of grounding our self is no longer working. We can’t just plunge our energetic roots down into the Earth any more and expect to stay there. She is shifting and changing. Until She settles we have to ground in a new way, within our own being.
As I was on my walk today I was given this image of the Silver Surfer. A surfer rides the waves as gracefully as possible. If a surfer falls down they get back up and surf the next wave. As Silver Surfers we ride the cosmic waves. Instead of being drowned by the energies that are assailing us we find balance within ourselves. That tuning in to our inner knowing is what keeps us on top of the wave instead of under them.
How do we do this? A daily spiritual practice is key. That could be as simple as a daily walk in nature connecting to the Mother Earth. It could be several minutes or hours of meditation a day. A daily yoga practice works wonders to connect to oneself. Every person has their own way of connecting that makes sense for them. The key is to do it. That is why it we call it a practice.
Stop judging ourselves NOW! When we judge ourselves for not being able to “get it” or “understand it” whatever “it” is we get pulled under the waves. Sometimes not “getting it” is the right action. Sometimes we just need to take a nap before we move on to the next thing in our day. Why not let napping be part of your spiritual practice?
A nap a day . . . . . . only to be taken without guilt.
