I definitely felt a huge lift off into a higher energetic pattern.
And of course, as the Ego is wont to do, I found myself wanting to "do and be my best" and "make it happen".
Basically, all that the highly socially conditional new year's resolution phase calls forth.
Thank goodness for an amazing circle of precious beings who joined me last night for a 2-hour Zen Retreat.
My dream of this retreat was to bring a little taster of the more elaborate virtual Zen Temple Retreat, SHUNYATA.
I am thankful for the grace of my guides. I am so glad I LISTENED.
Yes. The Universe is always inviting us to tune into the abundance that already exists.
We need to simply purify and cleanse our hearts and minds to allow light in. Empty out to fill up.
Every ceremony is an invitation to do so.
Last night, instead of manically buying 2021's accelerated energies we invited in stillness.
My nervous system was entangled with the heaving energies of the planet before I entered this temple of silence. I was fidgety and bent on making sure everything was "perfect" for what my Ego would call "the first event of the year".
When I began the retreat I flicked each bead on my mala necklace with a frenzy that mirrored the level of anxiety that was going on in my head.
And then I remembered with the help of Tea Spirit: serve from the heart.
I remembered to send loving energy through the ripples in the transmissions.
Being in a human body living a human experience, the spirit that is in touch with the Dao manifested herself in the simplicity of this Zen temple that resides within all of us.
I also saw the shadows and light alike.
I saw my role in going where rarely anyone would dare go for the precious beings I guide with loving compassionate capacity.
I saw the gift of accountability and power of community in providing a container for the Dao to flow through us.
I saw the all embracing Tea Spirit, who always and forever carry us through the darkness, an unwavering presence riding the turbulent waves with us with unconditional love.
I am here for you to hold you when you are ready to uplevel and let Spirit do the rest. 🌟
