Earlier today I responded to a colleague’s question on Instagram. In her post she mentioned she was having head and neck strain. Since she is in a healing arts field, essential oils, my written comment to her suggested that she avoid overworking her masculine energy which creates tons of drive and action in favor of bringing in more female energy that allows flow and results to be magnetic. I suggested that she create a balance that incorporates both activity AND trusting the flow of life. This balance will take better care of her human spirit and body.
Later in the day I noticed that she saw my response and asked “how do I do that?” I answered her there, but this simple exchange prompted me to write this post. I suggested to her that identifying human programs that have us exhausting ourselves in the name of success and productivity is one area to observe. I offered that she could explore what is meant by ‘feminine energy’ and how that works to attract or magnetize the desired outcome.
The fact is while I answered her, and knowing her as I do, I could sense her reasonable disbelief on some level, that my proposal had any real merit. And she is not alone. I completely understand that addressing questions from a spiritually-centered perspective can come off as lopsided, meaningless and trite.
In the realm of conscious spiritual awareness, words often fail. As humans we are third dimensionally programmed to discourse within an accepted frequency regime that is disinclined to recognize personal power and choice. It is also not a big fan of balance and wellbeing as a way of living and being. As such, to make responses to “how do I do that?” in a few short consciousness-based sentences mostly falls flat.
In my experience the other person either turns off and tunes out or, worse, gets irritated. I’ve had it all happen. The more reasonable human programmed response, if one is even made (first line of huamn programming is to NOT respond to the stated pain), would be “oh, sorry to hear you are are in pain.”, the next acceptable response would be “you could also take a warm bath or get a massage”. Those both fit with acceptable expectations for human interaction. No one is going to argue with those.
Most humans don’t want to hear what I responded with when asked “how do I do that?”. Why not? Because they don’t yet feel able to do the first steps needed. These first steps to anything energetically, consciously or spiritually related require you to notice something or become aware of something. This requirement is the first warning flag a human needs in order to sense danger that their beliefs are going to be challenged such that they need to run away from the conversation.They are being asked to go within. This inherently suggests that solutions lie within not outside of them. It also implies the long haul, no quick fix. Ugh.
A significant set of others decide to fight back when they hear the kind of response I made. Trust me, after all these years I know when another person feels defensive and would rather get passively huffy or downright negative and mean. Plus, my mad skills of perception (chuckling) can smell a sour note a mile away. There are the lovely but fewer intrepid souls who get curious and ask the next question. “What do you mean by that? Can you describe that?” Sweet relief. These souls are you dear reader. These are the humans who by changing themselves change the planet.
I get asked ‘how-to’ questions and often know I’m being asked to regurgitate a list of some sort, a recipe, for relieving a symptom or two. The plain truth is that conscious living of any kind is not a recipe or list. It’s an internal drive or call that we answer for living in a more sovereign way such that human programs are no longer unconsciously driving thoughts, feelings or actions. It is a cultivated perspective that takes dedication and practice. Lots of practice.
So yes, our kind are going to appear to those who are not ready to explore themselves in this manner to be all ‘love & light’, elusive, exclusive and without merit. I’ve increasingly accepted this to be the case now that I am no longer looking to fit neatly into broadly accepted categories for what ‘good humans’ look and sound like. Or what what helpful humans say when asked “how do I do that?”.
I’m okay with the fact, and this is a long time coming, that my best language and intent to support another soul will fail to be received in the manner it was intended, often and completely. After all each of us is already sovereign. We all heal and evolve ourselves based on the blueprint with which we arrived and with which we teach ourselves to inform and interface. It’s the true divine nature of all existence.
I write this with much love as always, Amber
