The Door You Seek
Fall has arrived...
And with it came lightening, thunder, rain, hail, flooding, and a truly Divine spectacle to behold in the beautiful and magical Chaco Canyon. Mother Earth and Father Sky helping to usher in the next step, turn on our inner lights, and open an important new door or portal. All of the stillness we have been experiencing has come to an end. We can feel the wheels turning and the subtle movement of the workings of the Universe. However, we still may not tangibly see or feel that movement in our own lives. We may still feel like we are fumbling for the light switch or stuck in the Room of Doors (Harry Potter). As we close the door we have just explored and ruled out, the room spins and we are left unable to decipher which doors we have already explored and shut for good and which we need to boldly and courageously open and step through. We feel the need to move, to act, and we still don't have the necessary information to do so. This energy requires us to be slow, observant and thoughtful. In a heartfelt sort of way. Too much reliance on mental interpretation could backfire. We need to approach every day and every situation by settling into our heart center, acknowledging and nurturing our connection to the Divine and each other, and from there listen to our soul's directive about how to proceed. We will be tempted to dive into any action just for the sake of movement. That is our old pattern. We are attempting to establish a new pattern. One based on inviting our essence to have a voice. Opening our hearts to this very important guest that we have been pushing out for years. This part of ourselves that we alienated (maybe even still marginalize) in order to better fit inside the box. The fact that we haven't ever fully fit inside the box is not the tragedy. The real tragedy is that we outlawed the truly brilliant and capable parts of ourselves in the process. We must invite that part of ourselves home. Open the door and let it enter. Let it fill us until we are bursting with the awareness of our own presence. Every moment, at every turn in the road, find your center and choose the next door based on your own personal heart wisdom.
With love, gratitude and blessings,
Tawa Ranes has a very curious mind and has always been interested in the nature of consciousness and the workings of the Universe. Since healing has been a big part of her own personal journey, much of her curiosity focuses on understanding how and why healing occurs or fails to take place.
