What do your words show you about yourself?
I had the great privilege of speaking at the Dundee Goddess Gathering event over the weekend, and was reminded of the consciousness within language, words, and communication.
The specific words and phrases we choose to speak reflect what we believe. They can show us our deepest doubts and fears, but also our strengths and areas of growth.
When we really pay attention to the specific words we are choosing in any moment, we can become more aware of the patterns we are still looping within, unconsciously creating the same scenarios again and again. And when we become more aware of the pattern, and start to act in different ways, the story and the language around it evolves too.
A lot of emphasis is put upon the power of language. The word Abracadabra means 'I will create as I speak'. But I wonder if it is less about the power of the speech, and more about what those words reflect more deeply from within. If there...
Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are enjoying the beginning of the Autumn Season! We are playing within the relational energy of Libra Season, where we learn about ourselves through our interactions with others.
We are social beings, meant to connect, commune, and interact with those around us. We can cultivate our Tribe, choose our friends, pick our partners, and shape our interactions. But the bottom line is this- we are built to be with others, and suffer when we are not.
When things are healthy, we thrive within our relationships, we become more vibrant, energised, and inspired. We know how to address differences of opinion with maturity and respect, allowing each other to grow in our own ways. But when things go sideways, the unhealthy reaction can be either to lash out, or run away, to hide from each other, to shut down inside. But this is how we miss out on our greatest opportunities for learning, growth, and awakening.
A few weeks ago, I heard a quote from...
Hello beautiful beings, I hope that you are feeling some spaciousness within body and mind after yesterday's Gemini New Moon! I had a recent realisation that has made a meaningful difference in how I communicate and receive information, both physically and energetically...
Over the past few months, I've found myself engaged in conversations that were lacking in spaciousness. In each of these, I was interested, engaged, and learned a lot within the sharing. But felt that something was lacking, and that I came away missing something.
And recently, I had a conversation with a friend where we asked each other questions, and allowed time and space to sit with the answers, to breathe through the unconscious thought or distractions, and feel into the deeper truths. And even within a much shorter conversation, I walked away with more clarity, understanding, and a deep sense of being changed within.
A great example of 'less is more'.
I would encourage you to pay attention to...
As our fears and pain are triggered, we are tempted to lash out, to criticize, and to judge the acts that have contributed to our discomfort. We rant about injustice, we shout at ignorance, we fight aggression. This course of action may provide temporary relief, allowing us to feel, momentarily, that we are 'better' than those who create suffering, superior in comparison.
But as we wage war against war, we feed it.
As we cut through the words of another, we cut ourselves.
We are each natural communicators, through our words, our actions, and our choices. We express ourselves in infinite ways, through our bodies, our minds, and through what we create in our daily lives. But we often view our communication as our own, within a bubble, limiting its reach, and in what we receive.
True, honest communication is Communion. It is a tribal sharing, a giving and receiving, a way to understand and...
