I hope November is going well for you. I know last week was challenging for some, and brought up many of our collective shadows.
The change we’ve asked for is here. Now we can put into practice all the things we’ve learned and built, and shine as brightly as we’ve learned to shine. Don’t hold back in using your voice. Stand up and be counted.
On my walk this morning I stopped by the tree circle and the message was all about being present. It’s so vital right now to be really, truly present and embodied in our lives. Even as I was there, I felt my mind drifting off to something else and observed just how quickly it can happen. So I stood and asked for my energy to be there with me, 100%, and remained there in stillness for quite some time.
I understand how painful it can feel to be present in the face of hatred, abuse, violence, misogyny, fear and chaos. I’ve lived much of my life in that energy. I understand. The challenge is when we’re not present, we’re dissociated, living in a state of cognitive dissonance that allows for us to make anything okay. And that’s not okay. The way to change is to face the duality head-on, to speak up for what feels right in your heart, and to live the truth of what you want to see in the world.
Presence is a gift for the whole collective. Healing is in the present, thriving is in the present, and love is in the present.
