"We are Conduits of Light here to Inspire Transformation" - Jemma
Lets face it. We are all Game changers.
At some point we have realized that there is more to this journey we call life than meets the eye.
Once we step onto our path it, it can often be very challenging and we wonder why the hell we signed up in the first place!!
But we have come for a reason. And we are all in this together.
Isn't that awesome?!
Sign up for my 'Whispers of Wisdom' and lets work together and play together to build a strong community of support and Love to help each other SHINE our light out into the world, where it is needed most.
You are a seed of Love, and your purpose here, is the Anchor the Light.
WE ARE TEAM LIGHT!
It has been over a month since my last post on Social Media. I stopped looking at Facebook messenger probably 2 months ago, and honestly some days I feel like i can barely keep up with the hundreds of messages that come into my whats app.
Digital overwhelm? Yes. but it goes much deeper than that and in amongst my work and travels, I have been in a process of deep self inquiry.
Like so many of us, I have done and continue to do deep inner work on myself. Sometimes too much. Sometimes there doesn’t feel like i have the time and space for what really needs to be done, and I crave it. As my teacher said to me, ‘ you have made an art form of giving and being in service’. She’s known me for 20 years and has witnessed my patterns intricately.
I’ve taken sips of cleansing and clearing air of the years in the form of retreats, daily practices, and self care rituals. All of which I can say I am quite a master of. Thank heavens or I don’t know if I ever would have made it this far! However, my body has been trying in its infinite wisdom to tell me for some time that something needs to change. Now its not just kicking, its screaming at me and wont be ignored.
So now the most profound question I could ever ask myself has arisen. And I’m not talking about a fleeting moments acknowledgement of the mind or the hearts reflection in mediation, but really in the core of my being. What would it look like if i CHOSE to stop everything right now for at least 12 months. Not because I have too or it isn’t working - quite the opposite my work is soaring! But because there is something much much deeper that my Soul needs time to integrate and realise so that I can become who I REALLY AND TRULY AM and have come here to be, beyond the mind.
What if I stopped all that I am doing, stopped serving, stopped giving, stopped over interacting, stopped social media and messaging, stopped planning, paused creating, ceased IDENTIFYING with the story of who I think I am and what I think I have come here to do.
I allowed myself to begin to go right into the feeling of this in ceremony a few days ago and i realised quite honestly, that I felt as much fear as i felt relief. Amongst feelings of bliss in my physical body, uncomfortable sensations arose as I asked myself the questions - Would i be able to pick up where i left off? Would everything I’ve worked for disappear? And the big one - ‘Who Am I, if it all falls away…’
This question feels to me like falling into the abyss of the unknown Self. A black hole of trust and surrender. The void of nothingness that is Everything. The place of death, where Creation begins. The place where we not only recognise the fears that are driving us, but we truly face them at the core level. The place of the deepest kind of liberation, that I thought i knew, but realise now I have only had a glimpse. And as the wise Terrence McKenna said - “This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.”
Even just inviting this reflection, brings such a feeling of Spaciousness.
So in honour of this I will be doing some changing and re arranging of my schedule. Doing less, being more and taking some extended periods of reflection and restoration on the feather bed in the abyss. Giving to myself so i can authentically give to others in the most crystalline way possible, with all my heart and my strongest most radiant Light.
Why am I posting this now? It feels right, thats all. Maybe there is something here for you to reflect on too. My healing is your healing after all
