Article -------WHAT'S NEW? and are we going back to the OLD?-------
What's New? Everything. Is this new going to stay? I don't know. We are riding a swinging pendulum. I feel it beginning to swing back to what I feel as an old pattern. While I can't change others (I've tried, it doesn't work) I can watch my own patterns and question the root of my own decisions.
Here is my list of how the old patterns of being with each other are creeping back into daily life:
A growing glorification on the ability to make instant decisions and take actions quickly. Actions are often taken despite a lack of understanding and knowledge of the situation. Actions chosen based on patience and communication are apt to be different. I am naturally afraid of the unknown. If I investigate and come to understand something or someone, I am more apt to realize how alike we are, and honor our distinctions, rather than fear them.
Hoarding wealth and goods out of fear of a future lack, rather than sharing money and resources that are currently easily abundant and available. I can share what I have now that I do not need, in order to support another in bettering their life. I can trust that when I need something in the future it will be available to me.
Believing that isolation shows power, when in fact it displays one's own distrust. Receiving the strength of many who would gladly help lets us build community. The unique facets of Spirit that we each are reflect the strength of our shared beauty and create a stronger community in which to live.
When I look out into my world, these are the principles that I see defining whether the New or the Old ways of being are at play. I cannot impose upon another, but I can chose for myself which way of being fits best.
In order to manifest the New way of being, we have to ground into our physical bodies and learn to commune with the lower dimensions of Nature and Nature Spirit. This lets us grow into the next step of our evolution into the upper dimensions.
I have never seen anyone stand up without first putting their feet on the ground. Too often new age or new thought thinks of heaven as 'up'. That limits us to half of creation. By going down we can access the other half of creation, both in the lower dimensions and within our physical body's lower chakra system.
This is a 17-minute Meditation to release pushy energies behind lower back (caffeine guides) followed by a short talk on the new direction of incarnation in souls of the Western culture and southern or indigenous souls. Also available as a CD on my podcast page. http://www.healingchants.com/podcasts.html
The article and sound healing at Spirit of Maat, and the monthly podcast are resources of remembrance. Please listen, read, download and share them. All are offered freely. The podcast (and most of my music CDs) are available at iTunes as well.
And finally, please
