This past week I “primitive” camped with some friends. No internet or cell phone reception, no electricity or running water, no showers or shitters.
I aligned with the natural rhythms of Mother Earth and myself.
Awakening at dawnbreak with the song of birds.
Eating when hungry.
Swimming when hot.
Napping when tired.
Heading to bed after dinner and nightfall.
Last week, I wrote about Solstice, its message becoming clearer with the arrival of the theme of Immersion and Emergence.
And continuing with tonight’s full moon which will emerge and immerse the night sky with its radiance.
We are being called to shine our light within so that we may emanate light and love in the world.
And this precisely is my fear, to shine my light, to be seen.
I’m an introvert.
I’ve worked one-on-one for decades.
I’m comfortable behind closed doors.
I’m comfortable serving others.
But, last week’s email was my directive to myself to immerse and see the frightened girl within.
My soul recognized the danger she had experienced in having allowed herself to be seen.
It saw her need to be seen and her yearning to emerge, be herself and shine her light.
And it saw the irony of locking her away within the recesses of darkness.
The time is now for us all to emerge.
Humankind is suffering with unrest, confusion, divisiveness.
Conflict, anger, blame ensues.
We cannot sustain this dynamic. We are harming one another, destroying our home.
Our suffering is calling to be healed. We must do something different, something effective.
Our work is to redirect our focus from outside. Immerse within the internal, tap into our individual guidance and aid in our own healing and the healing of humanity and our planet.
On my trip I was immersed in darkness within the heart of the forest. Upon turning off my headlamp, fireflies emerged, surrounding me with their light.
They blinked in unison.
And then they all paused. No pulsing of light for several beats.
And then again they shown their lights.
In synchrony, unity.
Community, communication and communion.
Let us plunge into the interior realms of our own darkness so that we can harness the Source of light within and unite as one and emanate love and healing worldwide.
Join me by engaging in this process of immersion and emergence and heal oneself and heal humanity.
