“Today’s Oak is just yesterday’s nut that had the courage to hold his ground”
I saw this quote on the site of Adam McLeod- “The Dreamhealer” and I felt how bang-on it was for me and all of us really. Adam has very unique story. Born with unfathomable healing gifts, Adam is known the world over for his ability to see disease and yes- heal people. What is also unique about Adam is be believes: ” In the future being able to heal by thought will be the norm”. Things are rapidly changing and we are opening up to new (old ) ideas of healing thanks to the support of quantum physics and a few nuts who stood their ground.
Right now we are entering a very unique time energetically and a lot of people are feeling the pull. You may even be feeling a little bit crazy at times. Right now everything we think, feel and do has a greater impact than ever before. I won’t give you examples- look for them in your own life and see what you notice. Is there more suffering? More drama? More love? This acceleration is part of something greater at work but you do possess all you need to push through it with the strength and stillness of the Mighty Oak.
I have been addressing a health issue for the past few months and it has taught me so much. Suffering or confusion or pain are often the greatest teachers. Here is how to turn pain into the path:
Remember the joke about the man who goes to the doctor and says :”Every time I turn my ankle like this is hurts.” and the doc responds:”Don’t do that then.”? Sometimes physical pain is a means to get our attention and force us to stop. In our culture we continually applaud people who “Push beyond pain”. Strength, endurance and the will to survive all have their place, but a moment of stillness can redirect your energy in the most surprising and powerful ways. I spent 3 months trying to force my way through a healing process that really needed me to just be still- wish I had listened sooner.
There is way to much chatter on blogs, social media and mainstream media these days. The next time you are feeling frazzled- instead of numbing out or filling it with mental dribble…try sopping up the noise with silence. Stop talking and listen to what is waiting to be heard.
Wide open spaces can do wonders to soothe the spirit and nature is a tonic. Try also cultivating spaciousness within. Yoga, Qi Gong, Meditation, Tai Chi are all great tools to help you achieve this connection.
Life can make you feel a little crazy at times, what you do with that crazy and how you respond to the chaos is what will determine how you experience this great shift. This is not a time to let go of all we have known, it is the time to fuse that knowledge with what we are about to discover- together.
